The Trump Coup d'Etat Effort is Beginning To Get Convictions

 8/19/20 National Review:

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, admitting that he altered an email that he used to apply for a FISA warrant against former Trump-campaign adviser Carter Page.

Clinesmith changed the email, which was originally sent to him by the CIA and which he was forwarding to the FISA Court, to make it seem as though the agency did not consider Page to be an intelligence source, when in fact Page had worked as a source for the CIA on several occasions. However, Clinesmith told the court that while he altered the email, he believed that Page was not a source.

Did Clinesmith do this out of his own hatred, or are there bigger names he can out in exchange fgor turning state's evidence?

  1. There's still a distance from Carter Page to Donald Trump, so someone must have been looking a couple of moves ahead. Clinesmith? Isn't he kind of small fry for such activities?
