FBI lawyer pleads guilty in Spygate scandal

August 19, 2020

  Last week it was reported that an ex-FBI lawyer was set to plead guilty to falsifying a document related to the Spygate scandal and today he did just that. Here is more:

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to making false statements by altering an email related to former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

  This was not just any document that Mr. Clinesmith doctored either, this document was used to illegitimately procure a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. But the story goes even deeper than that because this man was on Robert Mueller’s team which was investigating the Russian collusion scandal all the while knowing about the ill-gotten warrant.

  His sentencing is not until December so hopefully in the meantime more dominoes will start to fall.

    Who knows what the outcome will be. I am sure there is a footnote here or there that will make sure nothing happens to anyone of importance. We can only hope that there has been some singing going on in the wing….but we are kept in the dark. Maybe that is done on purpose for now, I am hoping that if/when the info comes out that it has been worth the money/time/lives that have been disrupted!
