Russiagate Forgerer Is Back in the DC Bar in “Good Standing”


The former senior FBI lawyer who falsified a surveillance document in the Trump-Russia investigation is back in the DC bar as a member in “good standing.” He hasn’t even finished serving out his probation as a convicted felon.

Kevin Clinesmith lives a charmed life. He pleaded guilty in August 2020 to doctoring an email used to justify a surveillance warrant targeting former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. He helped ruin Mr. Page’s life. It was also use to spy on the Trump campaign as part of an obvious coup.

Clinesmith was sentenced to 12 months probation last January. But the D.C. Bar did not seek his disbarment, as is customary after lawyers are convicted of serious crimes involving the administration of justice.

They didn’t even discipline him. Finally, after negative publicity, they temporarily suspended Clinesmith. In September, the bar let him off suspension and restored his status to “active member” in “good standing.”

They didn’t even check to see if he was off probation or met his requirement of 400 hours of community service.

From the records, it also appears bar officials did not consult with the FBI’s Inspection Division, which has been debriefing Clinesmith to determine if he was involved in any other surveillance abuses tied to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants, in addition to the one used against Page.

The DoJ/FBI is a joke.

Imperial Swamp comrades will never break ranks or Judas one another, well except for Mike Pence. (snicker)
The two tiered society is more like a layer cake with all the levels and the taxable unit serfs are the wipe your feet at the front door mats no matter what the race.

O/T-A moved miles away from Crapital City buddy had some Trump 2020 money that looked real!
He would rather part with a real $20 but said Christmas is coming up and to help with some work on the acreage to maybe get one as a bonus.
It will be a historic relic one day and those mementos are the best.
Everyone was working out there and stopped to ask Farmer John for directions because wandering around all day and burning up all the gas is not an option.
