  1. LOL, surely they are not running with the excuse that his lawyers attempted.

    Did they forget he also WROTE the text, claiming no relationship, or work for, federal agencies?
    And at that time he would have seen his ‘mistake’. Right?
    And this was in the first application & all renewals, so he had enough time to repair his ‘error’.
    And they also downplayed Carter’s work for the FBI (actually they misled the court on that too).
    Clearly not a mere honest mistake.

    Hence his deal & he will sing (or already has more likely).

    Why did Barr go out of his way to say anything at all? If it’s not “earth-shattering” why bothering rushing to Hannity to make sure everyone’s anticipating something? Why the hell are you teasing it? I’m not trying to imply something here with these questions, I genuinely don’t get it.

    Teasing a nothingburger guarantees disappointment all around. Because the heads up makes us think it must be *something* — most people are predicting a low-level indictment. But frankly for the AG to preface ANY indictment as not-earth-shattering is bizarre and inappropriate — much less an indictment of a federal official related to illegally targeting a president/presidential campaign. It’s just terribly bad form for an AG to tease an indictment as not earth-shattering (even if he’s mindful many are awaiting high-level accountability).

    So “not earth-shattering” leads me to think it’s not an indictment at all. Unless Barr was improvising — realizing in the moment he was addressing a Hannity audience and wanting to temper expectations. But again, why do on Hannity with a teaser in the first place if it’s a nothingburger? Weird.

    On the brightside, this odd comment from Barr might provide a window as to his perspective; because by calling this first development “not earth-shattering” Barr is by implication previewing that at some point a development WILL be earth-shattering. Otherwise, it would be totally self-defeating to call the best they’ve got nothin’ much. Otherwise, it would be a total messaging fail.

    I know — this is a lot of over-analysis of a single comment. It’s just such an odd way to frame an announcement on a matter of absolute vital importance to our nation, and perhaps the most highly anticipated results of a years-long secret process in American history. Anyway, we’ll know soon enough.

          Do we have any idea whether this deal involves a proffer, or promise to cooperate? Otherwise, sure does look like a James Wolfe special. One count plea, which in the drip, drip of information — confusing allegations, process crimes, mind-numbing connections and timelines no one can follow — it can easily be swept aside by by corporate media.

          Barr told Hannity we should interpret this plea as an indicator that the investigation is on track. Just like the Wolfe plea? Not impressed.

      At least Hannity asked him about the weird mustacho boy’s report. I could tell Barr didn’t like it. So agree, quit the interviewing and do something Barr. On Levin he said nothing. The dems charge ahead, they don’t care if they are doing it right or not, AND THEY STILL GET AWAY WITH IT. Barr said we are just making sure that we have a real good case. He must be part of the girlie man establishment that is threatened by Trump. Trump has to fight all by himself. Pence acts like a weasel. The Israel deal was huge, and all one reporter asked him is if he’s sorry for all the lies he’s told for the last decade. No one says anything, not one republican will defend him. The republican party could win it big, ALL OF IT, but a fourth of them are evidently voting democrat.

        I believe the GOPe, like the Kentucky Gobbler, Mittens, Lankford, Portman, etc.would prefer to be in the minority. Nothing changes in their lazy lives and blatant Uniparty corruption if they are in the minority except for the excuse that “we can’t do anything” because we don’t have the votes.

        In this way the GOPe,and their CCP, CoC, Business Roundtable, etc. globalist paymasters can make President Trump a “lame duck” early in his second term to stop the America First agenda. They hate President Trump and all his supporters as much as their Marxist Democrat counterparts.

          Agree. McConnell seems like he’s barely trying to hide it by leaving PDJT out to dry on Covid relief negotiations. He shoveled trillions to his CoC friends in the first round then basically called it a day.

          And I think it’s worse than wanting Trump to be a second-term lame duck; I think it’s just like the impeachment dynamic — he’s stepping aside to give the dems an open goal on the election. McConnell got what he wanted in term 1 — a raft of corporate friendly judges and another bailout haul for his asset-bubble-addicted benefactors. He’ll have no problem with a Biden presidency.

          Trump should drop the unified front with GOPe and run against Congress. Return to his message from Fall of 2016. There are more Walkaway dems on the left who’ll sit this one out or vote Trump, than there are NeverTrumpers who’ll vote for Biden. And honestly, the disaffected (sane) left are so dumbstruck by these past years and adrift politically, they’re easy to get. Just acknowledging the uniparty will do it.

          Trump is being stymied on action — not just by dems and the bureaucracies, by GOPe. But one thing he’s got that they can’t take away or subvert is the ability to tell the truth. And it’s so rare, I’m telling you, it cuts through a lot. Speaking as a 2016 Bernie voter, I can tell you how compelling it is when ANY candidate speaks truth THAT IMPLICATES THEIR OWN SIDE. Even as a Bernie voter in the primary, I tuned in when Trump stood on stage and called out Jeb and the other empty suits for lying about the Iraq war. That was the third rail, and he went there. Bernie never would. It causes people to start rethinking things and look for more information ….. and when they find it, they can’t go back.

          Anyway, I’m digressing here. Just my two cents!

    Clinesmith being charged and pleading guilty today is very good news! For the uninitiated here it never easy to prosecute a lawyer, pharmacist or a doctor because they will lose their state license and lose their livelihood. So, the average corporate type defendant can do their time in prison and come out with another job lined up but not a lawyer. All those years of law school and student loans down the drain. Family embarrassed. Who is going to hire a disbarred attorney? So, lawyers and doctors typically go down fighting hard. The fact that AG Barr didn’t make a big deal out of it is also very good news!!!

    I am convinced the CIA sent him in to spy, and he found nothing. That not being good enough, they used Carter Page without his knowledge.

    Carter Page is not an idiot, or fool. There are emails out there where he actually tells Comey that he knows what Comey is up to. Page hid his email address to ensure he was copied in on any responses to the email he seeded. That evidence was put on Twitter a couple of weeks ago.

      I don’t think so. Sundance has the goods on the larger issue. Supposedly, “Phase 1/Phase 2” reveals massive corruption, and not just “Spygate” specifically. As part of his discolsure operation in D.C., Sundance stumbled upon a juicy revelation about the Durham <=> Barr <=> Mr. XXXXX set up. And I think from there, Phase 1/Phase 2 was enhanced with this added dimension of exposing what THE HELL is or is not going on with Team Durham.

      Phase 1/Phase 2 is still a thing. What the DOJ may or may not have been able to avoid with today’s news is the disclosure of Mr. XXXXX to the media and to the public. Or… knowing Sundance (to the extent possible)… a full and thorough analysis of what Durham and Mr. XXXXX likely are and are not doing in parallel based on these 7,342 data points, etc. etc.

      That said, Clinesmith talking is helpful, but limited unless it gets them Page and Strzok. If one of them flip, THEN we’re making headway.

      That said, while the indictment is nice, unless it’s just an appetizer for something later today, I doubt it dissuades Sundance nor should it. This indictment was such a low hanging fruit a baby just learning to crawl could have snagged it. If the DOJ is attempting negotiations with Sundance, they need to sweeten the pot way more than with just this and I say that as a strong supporter of Barr and one whose felt I have a pretty good sense of what the man is about and how he operates.

I read quite some time ago that these people were using an encrypted email/messaging system outside the normal FBI networks. (ala Hillary). If that’s the case, Clinesmith was almost certainly a part of that, and his ability to get investigators behind the encrypted email firewall would be incredibly valuable.

    First tier… those that run for office or are on a team of someone running for office.

    • WRB says:

      A process crime is an offense against the judicial process. These crimes include failure to appear, false statements, obstruction of justice, contempt of court and perjury.

      But though Clinesmith lied, it was in the context of doing his job, not in the context of being investigated. So it really isn’t a process crime. It is an “abuse of power” crime, and (probably) in support of a conspiracy.

      If we read the charging document, we see “the FBI opened a Foreign Agents Registration Act investigation.” That sounds like they opened a criminal investigation, not counter-intelligence. So what’s with the FISA? I see a red flag there.

      We also read “On August 17, 2016, prior to the approval of FISA #1, the OGA [CIA] provided certain members of the Crossfire Hurricane team…had been approved as an operational contact…The first three FISA applications did not include [Carter Page’s] history or status with the OGA [CIA]”

      So the FBI says, “hey, we got probable cause this guy is a Russian SPY.” And they forget to mention, “well, the CIA says he works for them, but ignore that.” That raises red flags too.

      In other words, there are clear criminal elements outlined in the document, and they point to people other than Clinesmith…who I am willing to bet will testify that all his (ex-) pals were running a scam on the Court.
