reaking today, former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith will plead guilty to falsifying a document to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page. The New York Times reported Friday “Clinesmith was charged in Washington, D.C., on Friday with one felony count of making a false statement, and will plead guilty in a plea deal with prosecutors conducting a criminal probe of the Russia Investigation.”

Speaking Thursday night ahead of the plea, Attorney General William Barr told Fox News “it’s not an earth-shattering development, but it is an indication that things are moving along at the proper pace, as dictated by the facts in this investigation.”

Clinesmith’s lawyer said “Kevin deeply regrets having altered the email. It was never his intent to mislead the court or his colleagues as he believed the information he relayed was accurate.” A dishonest statement at best, considering “Clinesmith is set to admit that he altered an email from the CIA in order to renew the FISA warrant against Page in 2017” reported National Review.

Altering information is clearly different from simply relaying information he believed he received honestly. Specifically, “that email stated that Page had worked as a source for the CIA, but Clinesmith changed the reference to state that Page was not a source” added National Review. That is a specific and calculated alteration.

Clinesmith’s email is amongst the many inaccuracies the Justice Department inspector general found in the FBI’s applications to surveil Page.

  1. Come on, this is it? Obama, Biden, Lynch, McCabe, Comey, etc all walk while Durham prosecutes one small-potatoes lawyer. And it makes Spygate look superficial.

  2. Better not be it! These traitors need to held accountable! You and I would be!

  3. Hopefully the first of many. Start with the small fish and get them to testify against bigger fish…

  4. Always start with the smaller fish and move up. Just Wait!

  5. The first domino to fall…

  6. Oh!!!! Gettting Jucier by the day…..Fry em all..Corrupt Lying Democrats. Thank you Trump today for getting the next round of Stimulus going even though the corrupt democrats in congress are still trying to hold America hostage, and don’t want the money going out unless they get like a trillion for their crooked deals. Disgusting Pelosi ,Schummer, and Nadler leading the scam.

  7. I am sure Clinesmith has some regrets. He got caught. I just hope it was not a “good deal” and that he does jail time and is never allowed to work in a government office of any type ever again.

  8. Carter Page was set up, Trump was set up, Flynn was set up and other were too. All by corrupted Obama era FBI, CIA and DOJ officials, and there is no doubt art all they all had Obama’s blessing to do it. None, not one of them would have ever done what they did without Obama’s approval. The only way Americans will trust government again, is to see these corrupted morons jailed and made an example of to all in government that would ever try to do something like that again. If they are given a free pass, other corrupted scumbags like them will try it again in the future.

  9. There are a number of statutes he could have been charged with. Him being charged with only one count in a plea deal leads me to believe he has been cooperating in the investigation. That is the way prosecutions start, the first guy to flip is the one who gets the deal.

  10. It seems to me that dems deem each article of the constitution valid ONLY if they suit their individual, self centered desires.

  11. The dominos start falling – there are > 30 of them, at least.

  12. Im hoping to see the rest of the “rats” get indicted and sent to PRISON FOR TREASON.

  13. Clinesmith should be facing the death penalty for conspiracy to commit Treason.

  14. These people doing the rioting know Obama guilty as can be. They are just trying to stare down Obama’s indictment.

  15. Actually Ron Hussey, all of this smacks of treason. A public firing squad is in order.
