FBI Lawyer Pleads Guilty: The First Shoe Drops in the Durham Investigation

It’s been a long time coming and it is just the beginning of unraveling what actually happened in 2016 and 2017 as the FBI, DOJ, and CIA under Obama all played a role in spying on the Trump campaign – and then the Trump Presidency.

In what is now dubbed “SpyGate” and thought to be the largest political scandal of our time, Attorney General William Barr had assigned US Attorney John Durham, in 2019, to investigate just how this whole thing started and if it had any predicate at all.

It seems his investigation may be wrapping up as the first guilty plea has been revealed.

On Friday, top FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty to making a false statement (altering an email that was used to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page) after being charged in his role within “SpyGate”.

The plea is said to be part of a plea deal, of which the specifications within it are unknown.

The question people are asking is, who did he turn on? After all, he played a key role in getting the FISA warrants approved.

Clinesmith’s deliberate falsification of a federal spy warrant was first revealed last December following a lengthy investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG), headed by Michael Horowitz. Horowitz and his team wrote in a 434-page report that Clinesmith — identified in the report as “OGC Attorney” — altered an email from a separate U.S. federal agency, believed to be the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to falsely state that Page had never worked with the CIA to investigate suspected Russia agents operating within the U.S. In fact, as Clinesmith was told by the operative, Page had worked with the CIA previously, as well as with the FBI.

Knowing full well that the warrant would likely not get approved had Clinesmith left the little fact that Page had been an operative with the CIA as well as the FBI, Clinesmith decided to scrub that from the email.

In case you're wondering if he had any bias, here are some of his texts that were released.

“I’m just devastated,” Clinesmith texted to Moyer shortly after Trump won the presidential election in November of 2016. “Plus, my god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff,” Clinesmith wrote.

“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” Moyer later asked Clinesmith, ostensibly referring to Clinesmith’s plan to remain at the FBI after Trump’s inauguration.

“Hell no,” Clinesmith responded. “Viva le resistance.”

These were the kind of people heading up the Federal Bureau of Investigation?

This didn't make near the waves that the Michael Flynn plea made. Mainstream media is already watering it down and it'll likely disappear from the MSM altogether, soon.

The good news, for those seeking justice, is that there is likely more to come as AG Barr, mentioned on Thursday night.

  1. The propaganda-wing of the demonrat party will not devote any time to this investigation result, because they are too worried about their masters being prosecuted. They will continue to focus on keeping the riots and lockdowns going, to sway the lemmings until November 3. The lamestream media only want to confound the public, hoping desperately to keep their demons in power.
    I hope Clinesmith sings, and composes. The first one to make a deal usually gets the best deal. I hope Trump loyalists are keeping him locked in a secure bunker with round-the-clock guard . . . The whole world knows what happens to anyone who connects Hitler-y and her compatriots to their scandals. The whole Russiagate scandal started with Flynn investigating Hitler-ys uranium-1 “deal”, which Obummer profited. It’s why the DNC chose Sleepy Joe and now Harris to go up against Trump. They desperately hope to fool America once again; hoping that they can keep the scandal under the radar until Biden is elected. If he is, it will all magically go away. No one will get prosecuted (except for maybe Clinesmith, who has already betrayed his masters).
    “Viva le resistance” will become “vive les convictions” when Durham gets through with them all . . .

  2. Are there any…any…honest people in Washington? Including people who write for publifcations such as yours. I will give you my email, but dont send me your newsletter. It obviously is extremely biased.

  3. We, the informed Americans knew that Obama is the head of the coup attempt.. We the informed Americans knew that Obama will be charged.. If Hillary got away with murder/Benghazi, NOBODY will dare to touch Obama gor obvious reasons. He is an ex president, a democrat and more importantly a man..
    The average democrat/liberal voters wont know, because it wont be reported at the mainstream media, they dont care . The democrat/liberal voters are the most ill informed group of people..

  4. Trump lies to American people every day. Arrest him
    He admitted to using post office to subvert election
    Arrest him.
    Admits Russians helped to get him elected
    Arrest him
    Denies voter rights to influence election. Treason
    Arrest him

  5. An alien force desires to get rid of the country and they must brand patriots as a virus.

    Who is on the chicom payroll?

    Are you really surprised by all of this?

    Mr Clinesmith you crapped on your own for others.
    A real knee pad brown-noser and now who will save you?
    Does your skirt cover your face well enough so people don’t recognize you in public?
    Have you ever produced anything INCLUDING funding your own education to obtain your Gov. job?

    I love you sweetie, try to be good wearing that new lipstick. This time you don’t get to choose the color.
