Former FBI General Counsel James Baker, who is currently working for Twitter, stated that he probably would not have got to meet with Michael Sussmann if he had known that Sussmann was working on behalf of the Clinton campaign.
Michael Sussmann is alleged of leaking on crucial data that reportedly linked Trump’s business to a Central Bank of Russia. Baker now works for Twitter.

In the testimony that he gave in the federal court in Washington, Baker stated, “I don’t think I would have.”
Baker stated that if he had known that Trump’s political opponent was behind the charges, it “would still have brought very severe doubts, definitely, about the trustworthiness of the cited source” and “factual accuracy of the material.” In addition to this, it would have increased what I refer to as “a serious concern in my opinion as to whether or not we were going to be played.”
Additionally, he asserted that Sussman informed him that the latter “was not appearing before me on behalf of any particular client.”
Since Sussman, Baker, and the other witnesses are all buddies, there is a possibility that they are all trying to assist the defense in some way.
