    I think people need to look at Techno Fog’s tweet that Wethal posted upthread.

    This could potentially be a bigger deal then what appears on the surface.

    I’m going to reserve judgement and let this play out a bit.

      So, if he pleads guilty will there be a trial where he makes an allocution as to what he did?

      • Wethal says:

        No trial, because he’s pleading guilty. Right now, I would assume he’s told a grand jury everything he did, as well as everything he observed others do, including being shown the original CIA email before it was falsified. Anyone who saw that and then signed off on the application for a FISA warrant with the falsified email knew they were making a false statement to the court.

        He may have also pointed Durham to where there was other documentary evidence. He’s low enough on th totem pole to not be included in many startegy sessions, yet he was carrying out instructions, so he may be able to fill in some blanks in the evidence.

        This is the world’s biggest jigsaw puzzle, and every witness (especially the cooperating ones), and document, fills in a piece or two.

          Wethal — I previously thought Clinesmith was “low” on the Coup Crew totem poll. Recently, I learned that he was one of the 3 (the other two being Strozk and Pientka) who attended the first purportedly “defensive” briefing of Candidate Trump and his NSA designate on August 17, 2016. The REAL purpose of that charade briefing was to interrogate Flynn (likely DJT as well). Then I realized that Clinesmith had been a central player from the beginning.

            I think he was a central player in the Russia hoax frame-up.

            I’m not sure if he was in on the reason for it – which was to cover up the previous years’ abuse of the NSA database, which Sundance has laid out. Getting rid of Trump may have been enough to get his enthusiastic participation.

            Clinesmith was not low on the totem pole! He was an attorney in the FBI’s Office of General Counsel assigned to Mueller and was probably in on everything! As I pointed out doctors and lawyers always go down fighting hard because they have a lot to lose! Getting him to plead guilty and cooperate is a step in the right direction as AG Barr said last night.

      I agree. There’s a couple T-Fog posts that make me think so.

      First of all, it’s the Prosecutors saying that Crossfire Hurricane was opened as a FARA case instead of as a CounterIntel investigation. This is the first time we’ve ever seen that.

      I’m pretty sure Downer’s GPap tip, didnt involve FARA. This very well could be the reason Durham and Barr disagreed with the IG on proper predication to open Crossfire Hurricane.

      The other T-Fog post of major interest is the excerpt from Goldman’s NYT article. It says that multiple officials had an unaltered copy of the CIA email that Clinesmith altered.

      What did they know, when did they know it, and did anyone tell Clinesmith to do it? A lot of possibilities for Conspiracy charges here.

      I think we should be aware of what Sundance said about the release and everyone seems to have forgotten. As I posted earlier today upthread, Sundance wrote about the release:

      “If no progress is made by this Friday 5pm, CTH will first share the name of the primary Durham investigator to media previously briefed on the documents we assembled. From there, and within 24 hrs, we will make that name public and direct inquiries can begin.”
      (link to source: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/08/10/status-update-meet-at-the-old-mill-we-ride-at-midnight/)

      The release today looks like it will be to a select group of media and then within 24 hours he’ll release it to the public. So, we may not actually see anything until tomorrow and we shouldn’t be disappointed if we don’t because Sundance clearly told us what his plan is.

          I would also disagree that “it cannot be that hard” because the issue isn’t getting indictments, it’s getting indictments that stick. An indictment that sticks is one where the person is found guilty by the DC jury that will handle the case. Very rarely do they find Democrats guilty. It’s got to be absolutely solid or it’s a waste of time. If they fail in court to convict, then the left will use it to say that’s proof that there really was no crime.

      Even though this was charged as an 1001 case, it isn’t (IMO) a process crime.
      This crime is independent of the investigation of Clinesmith.
      Same facts with a twist WOULD be a process crime. E.g., investigator asks Clinesmith “did you change the email” and Clinesmith says “no.” Same statute, but the offense is the [process crime] answer of “no” rather than changing the e-mail.

      This was not a process crime.

      A process crime is where you get caught up in saying the wrong thing during an investigation into a matter but you aren’t charged with anything having to do with the primary matter being investigated.

      This is a conviction for a crime committed with respect to the matter itself being investigated.

      Papadopoulos was a process crime, he was never charged for having done anything wrong with respect to coordinating with Russia on the election. Flynn was a process crime.

      This Clinesmith conviction is equivalent A US person having been convicted of conspiring with Russia on the election, not like somebody getting tripped up on their words during the investigation.

        False statements to court, even if the time served is minimal in Club Fed, could still get the lawyers involved disbarred or suspended. A suspended lawyer usually has to petition to be reinstated – it’s not automatic reinstatement – and prove that he has been rehabilitated of the offense that got his suspended.

        Even then, the reinstated lawyer can be unemployable because no professional liability carrier will cover them, or will demand too high a premium. I don’t know what the legal job market is in DC, but it was terrible in Philly when I retired a few years ago.

        I’ve been wondering if Brave Resistance Fighter Clinesmith has paid off his school loans, or if he has a mortgage and a couple of kids needing college funds, or perhaps private school tuition. And then there might be the cost of a good divorce lawyer, child support….

    “We’re not gonna do anything inappropriate before the election”…

    Great. Just great.

    When the enemy has raped, burned out and traumatized the culture and the body politic, the besieged say “We’re not gonna do anything inappropriate”. It’s like the French with the Maginot (imaginary) Line. The Germans just went around the thing that the French spent untold amounts of money to build.

    With all the evidence, they don’t “feel” they “can prove a thing beyond any reasonable doubt”. The evidence in the public domain removes any “reasonable doubt”!

    Take the case up outside of the DC, if that’s possible. For cryin’ out loud.

    “What the Democrats are doing is grossly irresponsible…reckless and wrong…” so close to the elections. Barr wants election integrity so the “government going forward is seen as legitimate and accepted”.

    THEN MAN YOUR TEAM UP and DO SOMETHING for the NATION’S SAKE. NOW!

    Otherwise you’re just a preening, mediocre bagpiper. Gravitas is so passé. Your beloved Federalist Society is potentially just months away from being taken down as a “Domestic Terror” organization by Camel-a Harris and her pals on the Hill.

    Clinesmith, In Order to Save Himself, Has Implicated Others on Crossfire Hurricane — Who Ultimately Hid the Exculpatory Info From the FISA Court?
    By Cristina Laila
    Published August 14, 2020

    According to Durham’s charging document (and also in IG Horowitz’s report), “certain individuals” on the Crossfire Hurricane were told in an August 2016 memorandum that Page was a CIA asset — so who else knew?

    Despite members of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane team knowing Carter Page was a CIA asset, that information was omitted from the first three FISA warrants on Page.

    Democrats have voiced thier concerns that Barr will use his position as AG to go after Trumps “enemies.”

    In a recent podcast, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif, said Barr “may be using the power of the Justice Department through Durham or others to go after the president’s enemies.”

    Talk about being tone deaf. Was not that driving force of ‘witch hunt’ ‘muh Russia’ collusion. To go after political opponents built on fabrications.

    On another front of even more tone deafness.
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/federal-appeals-court-order-hillary-clinton-deposition-email-use

    The appeals court accused the district court of having abused its discretion, having used suspicions of bad faith by the government to opening the door to what the appeals court described as “far-reaching” depositions.

    That is rich given that the ‘witch hunt’ ‘muh Russia’ collusion investigation was entirely based on ‘bad faith’ suspicions of hersay to predicate an investigation and when called out over the appearances of bad faith early on in 2018, the Mueller defense for the key players was, “Well, given the gravity of the allegations, we had to error on the side caution as becoming their predicate excuse justification. And all that, knowing full well the predicate was hatched on a sinking pile of lies.”

    Sundance, drop the hammer.
    AG Barr may be meeting the criteria you outlined, “What needs to happen, but the Dems and MSM are still fundamentally incapable of the Mea Culpa. They waste no opportunity to take Judgements and Allocations of the wrong doing and turn it on its head, inside out.

    Until there are consequences to the lying, “That politically sends it right back at them with a candle on it… stuffed up their, “you know what!”
    These stuff shirts and skirts are not going to give up the ghost.
    Allowing them to continue to live in this bubble space of denial is not healthy for the Nation and most definitely not conducive to their growth as human beings.

    Soy Toy Clinesmith? Please. That is the absolute lowest, of the low hanging fruit. An alteration that doesn’t even impact the earlier illegal FISA warrants, signed off illegally by huge Obama loyalists.

    AG Barr just reprimanded a tiny, tiny Minnow, in the overall Deep State, Uniparty coup. This close to Barr’s 60-day escape hatch, he’s a total nervous, whimpering, “Shakes the Clown,” concerning knocking down the door, of Comey’s “Special Government Employee,” Danny “boy” Richman, who was given illegal access to the NSA database, which he provably, concretely, can be shown through his search queries, acted with criminal malice.

    Sundance needs to proceed with Phase II. That’s the plan I trust. Full exposure.

      yes and no, the let Clinesmith plead to the lowest possible count, BUT they have proof that Clinesmith and others in the cabal knew since 8/17/16 that Carter Page had been an operational CIA source for 5 years…. so letting Clinesmith off easy on a plea will be ok (with me anyway) IF it is really necessary in rolling up and convicting the much larger gang. We’re still limited to hoping that much much larger prosecutions are underway, but i’m still willing (for the moment) to hope and expect that is the case.

  45. Barr gave you some sunlight on how he intends to ‘decline prosecution’ of anyone high-up in Obama’s spying-and-treason ring: He stressed that “…anyone who committed a crime THAT WE CAN PROVE BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT…” would be charged. When you hear the forthcoming ‘investigative reports’, you’ll hear him bemoan how all the uncharged crimes “couldn’t be proven” beyond a reasonable doubt.
    Contrast this with the Demonrats who bring a flood of charges, wear down (and bankrupt) their persecuted targets, then extract unjust sentences via either unfair liberal-loaded juries or extorted guilty pleas.

    Unless we can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Russians did not hack the DNC server (which, of course, they didn’t) and that the crooks knew that or could have known that, nothing of real justice is going to result from these investigations because the crooks will always fall back on that phony story to justify all they did.

  47. There is incredible irony in the breathlessness of some of the commentary here. Yes, announcing a guilty plea associated with the 3rd renewal of the Carter Page FISA application is a step forward in holding members of the Crossfire Hurricane and Mueller investigations criminally responsible for electronic surveillance on candidate, President-elect and President Trump, but … it’s all another head fake.

    First, Clinesmith is pleading guilty to providing false information to the FBI agent responsible for verifying the 3rd Page FISA renewal. General Barr has already conceded that the 2nd and 3rd renewals were not properly predicated in a formal filing with the FISA court. That has to do more with the documented knowledge of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation that the primary subsource for the Steele Dossier disclaimed virtually the entirety of the factual predication for the original application and the first renewal before the 2nd and 3rd renewals were even filed. Clinesmith isn’t even being prosecuted for altering evidence. His prosecution is literally identical to Wolfe’s, and both ignore 900 pound gorilla crimes for which they could have been prosecuted.

    Second, Clinesmith’s prosecution for omitting information about Page being a source for the Other Government Agency (presumably the CIA) is being used to cover up the real criminal omission in the original FISA application which was replicated in all three renewals, i.e., that Page was the undisclosed employee of the FBI responsible for the successful FARA prosecution of Evgeny Buryakov and the expulsion of two undisclosed Russian counterintelligence agents. The original FISA application and all three renewals categorically identified Page as an agent of the Russian Federation. Critically, the FISA court was told, accurately, that Page had been the subject of counterespionage recruitment by the SVR. What the original applications and the three renewals omitted, however, is that this attempt at recruitment was UNSUCCESSFUL. Instead, Page was employed by the New York Office of the FBI, Counterintelligence Department, to place electronic surveillance assets in the SVR Residentura in New York City. The recordings obtained thereby resulted in the successful prosecution of Buryakov, announced by John Carlin and Preet Bahrara on March 11, 2016 in a manner that clearly identified Page as an American counterintelligence asset TO THE RUSSIANS. The press releases by the DOJ-NSD and the SDNY provide enough factual specificity concerning Page’s role in surveilling Buryakov and the two expelled SVR agents that there is no way Russia did not know Page was an American counterespionage asset.

    Bill Priestap was one of the lead FARA investigators in the New York Office of the FBI during the Buryakov investigation. There is no way he did not know about Page’s status as an undisclosed employee of the FBI. And he took that knowledge with him when he moved to FBI HQ in late 2015. There is also no way that no one in the New York Office of the FBI knew that Page was very recently and quite possible still an undisclosed employee in the Buryakov prosecution when they were tasked with opening a FARA file on Page on April 1, 2016, shortly after Candidate Trump announced him as an advisor to the campaign on March 21, 2016. Indeed, Buryakov was not even sentenced until late May, so technically Page was still a key witness at the very moment NYO opened a FARA investigation of him.

    Let me repeat that. FBI HQ (with the full knowledge of Bill Priestap) tasked the New York Office with opening a FARA investigation into the key American counterespionage asset responsible for the successful FARA prosecution of an actual Russian counterespionage asset. And the DOJ-NSD and Crossfire Hurrican investigators never told the FISA court about this overlap.

    Sure. Having just been burned pretty badly by Page, resulting in the effective neutralization of three SVR agents, and while he was still the key witness against their undisclosed agent, Buryakov, the Russian SVR successfully recruited Page to act as an undisclosed agent of the Russian Federation to conspire with the Trump campaign. Only, there is absolutely nothing in the original FISA application or the three renewals explaining how the FBI discovered Page was, in effect, a DOUBLE AGENT because they never told the FISA court that he was an FBI counterintelligence asset to begin with.

    My dog could indict the entire Crossfire Hurricane team with these facts. But here we are four years later and … crickets.

    Clinesmith is a head fake. Omitting information about Page as a CIA asset is nothing compared to omitting information about Page as an FBI counterintelligence asset.

    I sure hope Sundance brings the hammer down.

      Thank you, I copied your comment and saved it. Sharing your clear headed assessment of Friday’s announcement was a gift to me.

      I am of the opinion that We The People should start acting like We The People.

      Justice Scalia left us a legacy we have yet to use : Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia ruled in the landmark case of United States v. Williams, 112 S. Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L. Ed. 2d 352 (1992), that:

      “…the grand jury under our Constitution does not belong to any of the three branches of government, but instead to We the People. As a result, the citizenry are empowered to empanel grand juries, indict, try, convict and mete out sentences for those accused of crimes.’ https://www.newsmax.com/larryklayman/grand-jury-justice-mueller/2018/04/24/id/856407

      I decided I should go read the whole opinion Justace Scalia wrote: https://www.law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/text/504/36 – and it was great. In it he quoted a great phrase I had never heard before – ‘sleeping on its rights: as in:

      “… we entertained review in circumstances far more suggestive of the petitioner’s “sleeping on its rights” than those we face today.” -Scalia

      Of course I first had to copy the opinion to my own computer, remove all the citations that make my head swim and read the plain text. Who would have thought that it would make such a great read.

        Plain text – Just get a load of the freedom and power We The People have to deal with a hijacked government. No need for gun fire – just the rule of law.

        18
        “[R]ooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history,” the grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It ” ‘is a constitutional fixture in its own right.’ In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office.

        19
        The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised. “Unlike [a] [c]ourt, whose jurisdiction is predicated upon a specific case or controversy, the grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.’ It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating. The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses, and deliberates in total secrecy.

        20
        True, the grand jury cannot compel the appearance of witnesses and the production of evidence, and must appeal to the court when such compulsion is required. And the court will refuse to lend its assistance when the compulsion the grand jury seeks would override rights accorded by the Constitution, or even testimonial privileges recognized by the common law. Even in this setting, however, we have insisted that the grand jury remain “free to pursue its investigations unhindered by external influence or supervision so long as it does not trench upon the legitimate rights of any witness called before it. Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said that the Fifth Amendment’s “constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge ‘.
