Did Mueller Place Special Counsel CYA in Report Footnote? – Proactive Distancing from Known Clinesmith Wrongdoing…

This is just a short article on a singular footnote within the Mueller Report that looks completely different in hindsight.

Kevin Clinesmith was the lead FBI lawyer during the counterintelligence operation called Crossfire Hurricane; origination date July 31st 2016.  When Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel (May ’17) he took over the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, adding additional DOJ lawyers to staff but retaining the FBI team which included Peter Strzok and Kevin Clinesmith.

When Kevin Clinesmith manipulated the CIA email to gain the third renewal for the Carter Page FISA (June 29, 2017) he was working on behalf of the Mueller investigation.

Clinesmith was removed from the special counsel team in February 2018 after his biased texts were identified by the inspector general.  Clinesmith resigned in/around September 2019 “after the inspector general’s team interviewed him.” (link)  Not coincidentally that Sept ’19 exit timeline aligns with the first notification to FISC Judge Coller.  (link)

Obviously, special counsel Robert Mueller would know the issues regarding Clinesmith prior to removing him in February 2018; and well in advance of his report published in March 2019.

Now… take a look at footnote #1, of page 13 from Muellers report:

From fn 1:

“¹FBI personnel assigned to the Special Counsel’s Office were required to adhere to all applicable federal law and all Department and FBI regulations, guidelines, and policies.”

An FBI attorney worked on FBI-related matters for the Office, such as FBI compliance with all FBI policies and procedures, including the FBI’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DOIG).  That FBI attorney worked under FBI legal supervision, not the Special Counsel’s supervision.”

Tell me that isn’t a big flashing CYA footnote from the Special Counsel – going out of their  way to proactively state that FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith worked under FBI legal supervision, not the Special Counsel’s supervision?

It seems clear in hindsight that Weissmann and Mueller knew the FBI misconduct that was likely to surface, as it has; so they made sure to position blame on FBI Director Chris Wray and FBI Legal Counsel Dana Boente back in March 2019.

        Must have gotten lost, landed up watching Mueller being asked about “parallel construction”, searching NSA data for & about targets. But as the methodology is illegal, the Bureau ccomes up with a unrelated narrative to justify investigation & prosecution.

        The point is the JD & presumably NSA, never disclose the illegal discovery & pretext.

        The writ application& subsequent case is built by pressuring other participants to say what the Bureau needs to make the case good,

        All sorts of depressing things about Ukrainean fascists and USAID merging funds with Soros for a global anticorruption project. Sounds like they interfere in other countries & leverage funds to enhance their control, and also opportunities to insert connected Americans into profitable companies.

        These state department people are so passionate about Ukraine, lost any sense of objectivity or primary loyalty is to our country.
        Neuland, plus a virtual SWARM of Americans select a particular faction, provide guidance, business deals and our funds, without supervision.

        Are our diplomats fronts for being backstage dictators? .

        When twitter first emerged I thought it was childish and stupid. What a puerile and useless idea.

        Twitter is the ultimate political playground: it IS the epitome of playground politics – it is childish and stupid.

        Trump took one look at twitter and said to himself. Ah.This is just what I needed to get my message across, daily. I can use this to great advantage – daily.

        Then Liberals cried loudly: But presidents can’t do that! How deplorable! It’s not PRESIDENTIAL! (It’s time to read about the behavior of past presidents, particularly Jackson. BTW, Jackson is still on the 20 dollar bill.)

        Trump is neither childish nor stupid. Play the deuce to beat the deuce.

    If so, it is just another lie of omission by the investigators.

    It will be interesting to see if Durham uncovers what exactly went down with Flynn in Jan/Feb 2017. The FBI was getting desperate to link Trump and Russia in the face of mountains of exculpatory evidence and the collapse of the Steele dossier as a valid source.

    As far as “CYA” goes this is pretty weak tea. The SC knew he had a huge PR problem with the coup plotters being outed. But, like any failed coverup, Mueller/Weissman tried to bury it when coming clean would have bolstered their credibility.

    If it is a CYA, then it’s an admission that the SC office feared that anything Clinesmith, Strzok, etc touched could unravel Mueller’s investigation. (which seems to me to be more likely than not at this point) It’s just a matter of time until Durham makes his way up to May 2019, and the scam that led to Mueller’s appointment. By May 2019, based only on the IG Report, we know that the FBI ought to have shut the entire “Russia collusion” investigation down.

    There was no need for Mueller, and everyone involved knew it. That’s why Mueller wound up spending 2 years investigating something that never happened as a pretext to try and bait Trump into an impeachable offense.

      Misconduct doesn’t even come close. This was a criminal operation to bring down the elected POTUS. Give the devils their due, from inception the Special Counsel made no pretenses toward even the appearance of impartiality (18 Angry Democrats) because they had to succeed in Trump’s impeachment/removal (actually, forcing him to resign).

      This was one of the myriad examples of weakness masquerading as strength.

      However, it was the inly plan that made sense at that point. And, it would have worked if they had conjured a sufficient case, all of their malefactions would have been washed away with his destruction. Just a bunch of folks like us belly-aching after the fact.

        Your mentioning Special Counsel’s goal of “actually, forcing [Trump] to resign” made me start to consider this entire conspiracy from their perspective.

        From the moment Trump came down that escalator, no matter how successful he was, the media and his other detractors kept saying things like, “he’s going to quit the race,” and later “he’s ready to resign.”

        63 million of us ignored that talk because it wasn’t anything like the personality we see. Trump doesn’t quit. He doesn’t give up. He fights. That’s why we elected him. Talk about Trump resigning sounded ludicrous to us.

        And yet, that’s what they believed. They see a totally different man than we know Trump to be. And when you view the entire conspiracy from their perspective, you realize the reason their plots and schemes have failed so stupendously is because they do not understand their target.

              2014 Brennan hosted an interagency INtell mtg; Mueller was speaker, 25 min on wires, amused that many agents r hostile w his Transformation, “Augmentation”, special interagency teams, functional merging of IRS, Securities, & DC, & district cases taken over by HQ, centralising control, etc. .
              Not official video, no. attendees are shown,

              After speech, Q&A dead Mueller assured them no backlash,they don’t work for him

              So only question blurted out “ Concerns re questionable legality of parallel construction. Mueller said he didn’t see it that way, Man said JD & DEA use NSA (illicitly) to scan for targets,:& use to build cases. But not ever revealed. The case report is walked back, evidence, origin & discovery is explained by legwork, traditional investigatory stuff.

              (Not my field, resort to imprecise language).

              So basing cases by using parallel construction is a methodolgy used in law enforcement by the JD and DEA, but is undisclosed to court & target, defendants.

              Man wanted to know if Mueller thought that was okay. He redefined & said yes.

              Hope this was intelligible

              My question if this is true?,and okay?

              Cause to me it’s similar to what the JD did to Stone, Flynn, PDT, and attorneys.

      The same people (Mitch, Graham and the rest of the,Decepticons who sang the praises of Mueller) are in control of the Senate trial of PDJT.

      Yes, I am so assured. ANYONE but PDJT, and I would be despondent. Instead, I am ebbulent, happy, upbeat and optimistic.

            Except that the fuedal system, although (like all things human) imperfect, imposed obligations on both lord and vassal, with the king not only receiving but bestowing. To whom was he responsible? First, of course, to God (people actually believed in Him in the Middle Ages), from Whom he held his authority but also, ultimately, to his subjects, to whom he had responsibilities. Monarchs were not “absolute” in the Middle Ages. In the 21st Century…

            except I’d add, that the way ideological claptrap leads to power, is by raising the hopes of the poor, using them as cannon fodder, then crushing them later on. Remember when Weber said power was legitimized in three ways, religion, tradition and charisma? I think the Bolsheviks just took that as a challenge, that they could manage with none of the above.

    They knew before they filed the warrant that it was bunk.

    They knew before they got the first renewal that it was nothing but bar lies.

    And they kept adding falsehoods to renew it two more times. Including after they handed it to Mueller

    They knew that it was created out of political bias and spite to harm Trump and create an insurance policy against him when they got that last renewal.

    They rushed the Flynn plea agreement to prevent release of that bias from killing the investigation.

    Long before Feb 2018, they knew that outright lies and fabrications were used to create the investigation.

    Yet they never said Trump is innocent, close up shop and wrap up the pieces. They could have written that up and handed off the real crimes back to the DOJ for prosecution. (Mostly Manafort.)

    They forced people to commit process crimes in an unwarranted investigation that should never have happened. And used those crimes to force people to cooperate in investigations of crimes they knew were never committed.

    They punished people for misremembering details of entrapment operations run against them. (Papadopoulos, Flynn)

    And they kept it all going to entrap the President whom they knew to be innocent in an act they could misconstrue as obstruction.

    They constantly leaked lies and smears to bloody up Trump, interfere with his government and prolong the investigation.

    They used the lies, the smears, the false accusations and the phony investigation to take over the House and create a fraudulent, precedent breaking, rights denying, unfair, kangaroo court impeachment.

    And thru all of this they have covered up and hidden their own crimes and abuses. And to date, except for a couple firings, nobody has been punished, not even those the IG recommended for prosecution.

    It feels like nothing will cause them to take criminal behavior in their own ranks seriously. Even those who didn’t participate help cover it all up and downplay it.

    Coverups will only make things worse and do much more damage to the agencies than prosecuting the crimes will inflict. Letting criminals free will only encourage more criminal behavior. And a vicious cycle of criminality and coverups will be much, much worse.

    If they won’t fix themselves, then Congress should scrap them and ban all members from ever working for the government again. These are real abuses of power, real obstructions of justice. Not the phony charges against Trump.

      Well said! My only bone of contention was your last paragraph. Because you can easily insert the word Congress for every time you use the word “they” and it would still read true.
      Congress is a large part of the “they”.

      Supervision matters, but “under whose coercion” is the issue. It doesn’t matter that Clinesmith was under FBI legal supervision, what matters is who influenced him by fiat of coercion or incentive to do what he did to the information under the supervision of the Special Counsel.

    God Damn you people and your insufferable self righteousness and lies!

    Clinesmith re-wrote an email confirming that Page was a CIA asset. Clinesmith edited the email to say Page was not a CIA asset.

    That constitutes Fabrication of Evidence in Order to Establish Probable Cause, a violation 18 usc 242. This fraudulent evidence was then knowingly submitted to a Court under penalty of perjury. The FBI then knowingly obtained fraudulent FISA warrants and committed an illegal search and seizure.

    These are demonstrable felonies and yet nothing will be done.

    My Hispanic immigrant wife slapped me in the face today and told me that the United States of America is the most corrupt Country in the world.

    She informed me that in South America they put Presidents in prison if they are determined to have been corrupt.

    Bush, Obama and Clinton. None of our corrupt politicians ever go to prison. We are utterly corrupt.

    I believe she’s right. And not just because she’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes upon and who happens to be my wife.

        In a just world he would be indicted regardless of whether he cooperates or not; any cooperation rendered would only be reflected as a mitigating circumstance for sentencing purposes; and it would all serve as the basis for disbarment so he never works as a lawyer again, But then in a just world, none of this would have transpired in the first place.

      The abuse of selective prosecution coupled to absolute prosecutorial immunity are a deadly combination. Sidney Powell uses the term “Prosecutorial Terrorism” to describe malicious, malignant and bad faith use of prosecutorial powers.

      Sidney Powell says we need to abolish absolute prosecutorial immunity.

      Look at the deterioration of our institutions, the looting of our treasury and perversion of our government agency function made possible in large part by absolute prosecutorial immunity emboldened by the ongoing cartelization of syndicate politics now infecting our federal government with myriad episodes of systemic criminal enterprise.

      From Pelosi to Biden, from the House to Ukraine, U1, Mueller, China and Soros, our modern era has become adrift in a swamp of insider dealing and serial misadministration of bad faith process preserved by partisan self-dealing protected with selective prosecution by unchecked prosecutors who enjoy absolute prosecutorial immunity.

        Also, we need to abolish judicial immunity. We are a nation of corrupt judges who are ACTUALLY above the law. At the moment, they cannot be prosecuted even if they violate the law. They also cannot be sued. Other countries allow civil actions against judges who violate the law. We need to be able to sue un-elected judges and take away their cash, houses, pensions and all other assets and leave them penniless for their crimes JUST AS THEY ROUTINELY DO TO THE REST OF US.

    As always, lots of theories abound here, including speculation, some to the point of being tinfoil hat stuff. Commenting is interesting and is a fun activity to do.

    But here is what is most important. There is always a trail of evidence that exists and remains. In older times it was called a paper trail. Now the trail is electronic, i.e. that of e-mails, sent and received. It is ineradicable. No amount of busting up cell phones with hammers or deleting and destroying bathroom servers can eradicate that trail.

    “Clean it? Like with a cloth?” (As then said by the smartest woman in the world.)

    Sundance has revealed this through providing some of it. All the evidence of plotting and collusion is still there. It’s still floating around out there and it can’t ever be deleted. All it takes is for someone to discover it, as it is waiting to be found. Nunes got the ball rolling. Will Barr and Durham find everything and prosecute it? What if there is so much evidence of it that it is overwhelming? So much that there is too much to be presented to indict everyone, incriminating EVERYONE in all these government agencies?

    There are only three possibilities. One is that only those at the highest levels who planned the coup and executed it knew about it – although we are finding out otherwise. Another is that everyone reporting to them knew and were also involved in it (including the media). The other is that EVERYONE knew what was going on there, down to the security guard and the janitor working there.

    Time will tell. Patience is a virtue.

        One thing with the Horowitz report is that if you do a word search for “Comey” you get no hits. But if you do a search for “C o r n e y” you get well over a hundred. They used a messy font that made the letters “r” and “n” look like an “m” when they are placed together. A very juvenile trick but obviously intentional for some reason.

    It’s not a very effective CYA, since Mueller failed to indict Clinesmith. Mueller was quite happy to indict Trumpkins for things totally unconnected with Russia, so it’s not as if he thought that crimes unrelated to Russia were not his business.

    Thus if he knew Clinesmith had forged evidence, and failed to indict him, then he’s an accomplice.

    Biggest questions are:
    Are Durham and Barr actually doing something worthwhile?
    And not just doing a cursory review of events, sugar coating crimes committed by these players and otherwise, letting things slide?

    While I doubt it didn’t take any prodding or convincing, were Clinesmith and a few others aware,and told, that they would be thrown under every bus rolling through DC when this all started?

    A lot of this is attributed to Robert Mueller. The Robert Mueller I saw testify in front of congress was a worn out old man who was very confused and at times incoherent. He couldn’t answer even the simplest of questions. Weismann & Co. played this poor old fool like a cheap violin. Mueller was a kind of straw-man who the devious Justice Department attorneys treated like a useful idiot. I picture him and Sessions sitting together in a rest home somewhere sipping coffee and playing gin rummy….. Kinda scary when one considers Mueller was director of the FBI, and the other head law enforcement officer of the United States!!

    Stick with Ukraine; the Mueller show is nothing but reruns and the jumpsuit companies are idle. While Obama was raping the country and Schiff, Pelosi, Cummings Feinstein, Kerry et al were selling them bombers that couldn’t bomb, guns that couldn’t shoot, Mitchy Mouse, the Wisconson Weasel, Papa John and Miss Lindsey were gleefully cashing Ukraine contraband cheques. Today, right now, the people of Ukraine are imploring President Trump to save them from Russian Aggression; they know he is the most honest man in the world. Here is the fertile ground; this is where jumpsuits can get measured up, the only reason for impeachment. A tripwire for the decades that will swallow up the criminals. Concentrate there; Obama’s greatest skill was getting us to look in the wrong direction. Would you want Rudy Guiliani poking around in your illegal affairs? Do you want to know that a documentary exposing a million truths is imminent? They are frantic, discombobulated because they know we have found the right target. Do not take your eyes off it! They thought they owned Ukraine but now they know it is Ukraine that owns them and most of all, they are terrified to realize that President Trump is the man who has no price.

    This definitely indicates that Mueller and his team knew of the corrupt malfeasance and covered it up as well as covering up for any blame for themselves.

The entire report was a sham and a frame on Trump. Mueller and his team are also part of the coup.
