On Thursday, NBC Nightly News broke the evening newscast silence regarding the bombshell findings from Special Counsel John Durham showing that a lawyer for the 2016 Clinton campaign was involved with spying on Donald Trump. Not only did they break the network blackout, but they stepped up to the plate and defended both Hillary Clinton and campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann.

Before even getting to any of the details of Durham’s court filing against Sussmann, senior Washington correspondent Hallie Jackson highlighted Clinton scoffing at and downplaying the accusations as if that meant anything:

CLINTON: They've been coming after me again lately, in case you might have noticed.

JACKSON: Referencing the unproven allegations from some conservatives that her campaign spied on then-President Donald Trump.

CLINTON: It's funny. The more trouble Trump gets into, the wilder the charges and conspiracy theories about me seem to get.
