Proactive Distancing – The Special Counsel Operation…

With the Clinesmith criminal information at the forefront, a reminder about the Special Counsel motives.  Again, it is important to remember the special counsel had the agenda and responsibility to carry on the resistance operation…. that was their sole function.

As a result, this is just a short article on a singular footnote within the Weissmann/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 Collyer. (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 Mueller’s 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.

    The more I read the more I’m convinced that Cass Sunstein was an architect of the strategy used by D.S. resistance. Go to Wiki and look at the Paper he coauthored in 2008 about Conspiracy. Relate the content to the use of the Media and outside experts.
    He is also a big believer that it’s the governments job to make sure individuals make the right choices.But reverse some of what he wrote in 2008 and apply it as a tactic in Spygate. It’s uncanny.
    He was or is a Travelling Fellow at Brookings also and is Married to Samantha Powers.

    At some point we have to look at the optimal conclusion for Trump’s Re-election…I want everything to be exposed as much as Sundance, I’d almost sacrifice Trump losing (not really) for the whole swamp to be exposed in a way where it’s just like common knowledge BUT in the short time we have left, the option seems to take down the FBI (and hopefully tangentially the Mueller team) with some Big Fish indictments that the MSM will have to cover in the lead up to November that will threaten their freedom and tip an electoral college majority towards Trump…this seems to be the trade-off Sundance is making…and amazingly it looks like he’s making it happen…so, seriously, can we shelve the doom and gloom and belly aching for the weekend, at least….i dont care how these people are posturing right now…i guarantee, none of them are sleeping very well

      • All of them cannot be taken away because as enraged as we are, some of what they did does not rise to the level of a crime because our laws can be manipulated.

        But some can. MORE IMPORTANT is the court of public opinion. Waht these people have done, what we allude to, barely touches the first level of perversion and grrotesque evil that they did. When people actually KNOW what they did, especially to our unborn AND our children, THAT will make a legal judgment irrelevant. They will be shunned and not be allowed to engage with anyone for business or for public relations…at long last they will be the pariah that they deserve to be.

        THAT is more concerning to them as tyrants cannot be exposed BEFORE they gain control, only after.

            Gabrielle,

            I’ve been saying the same thing. The web of corruption and treason is so large the RICO statue may be an effective way of bagging the whole lot, including the media, FBI contractors, bureaucrats, politicians, judges, etc.

            This doesn’t exclude indictments for specific crimes, but rather an additional charge that may be easily to prove when the criminal activity is seen in whole. One track is to follow the money. Start with GPS Fusions bank accounts, Clinton Foundation, and the financials of the lead participants and allied organizations, stock trades, book deals and Go Fund Me. Don’t tell me Soros is spending his own money. If he is, it’s probably because he is being blackmailed (more likely he is a money laundering operation for the Democrats.)

            It’s always about the money.

              The way they were able to move players into key positions to run cover is eye opening. Any bets Strzok’s wife was move into the SEC enforcement leadership for additional leverage on some of the players, as well as protection for others? His supervisor’s wife’s political campaign being financed by friends of HRC while HRC was being investigated for violating the Espionage Act?

              You may not be able to convince a Prog what they did happened, or was even was wrong. However, you’d have a better chance of shattering their warped view when you expose the money and greed of their heroes.

        He KNOWS everything that we have and he is a master at unveiling in a timely fashion.

        the media has lost all of its glitz and lustre and finesse, but Trump is a marketing genius, a masterful troller, a charismatic media presence and a half century active international deal maker.

        NONE of the never trump crowd, be it swamp D.C., swamp media, swamp Hollywood or swamp globalists, can touch him for that.

        Maybe even more importantly WE are worried about life after Trump, but if you know Trump you know that he is mentoring and thinking about the same thing. he does COMPLETE deals, not quick patch jobs like all of these utopia visionaries who feast on theory and imagination but have the cleanest fingernails, the softest hands and the most perfect clothing and coiffure because they know as much about getting in the trenches as they know about living lives that are decimated by the consequences of tHEIR actions.

        There will be no more wars because these people will never fight for lost causes and in their eyes over 3/4 of the world’s population and regions ARE lost causes and should be left to self-implode.

    So, James Wolfe. What does that/him have to do with this?

    First, there’s something fishy. Clinesmith did this on purpose, intentionally and there are texts/emails to prove it. But his lawyer is saying just the opposite — a terrible, unintentional oopsy doopsy mistake. Something is fishy.

    So Clinesmith is being allowed to plead to something less than what really happened. Additionally, some suggest he could have been charged with a 20-year offense instead of the 5-year false statement charge. So he’s getting off easy. Maybe he’s cooperating?

    Or maybe, like Wolfe, he threatened something…and someone else stepped in to urge leniency to lessen the damage?

    Well, I don’t know much more, or have any guess about what Clinesmith might have threatened or not, but I think that’s what the tweet from Tweeto Bandito is suggesting.

        One of SD’s tweets suggest he’s carefully optimistic — that Clinesmith got better treatment by cooperating instead of by threatening someone powerful who put the kaibash (sic?) on heavier charges.

          Seneca: Absentee ballots are legitimate and have been available for a long time. There are reasons people can’t get to the polls. There is a process for getting one, and the voter roll is checked to see if the person requesting it is registered and the address is correct. A universal mail out of ballots is much more problematic because the scale of possible fraud is so large.

          I have worked at the polls, and I can say Absentee Ballots have always been open to fraud, an earlier form of ballot harvesting on a small scale, and would mostly affect local elections where a few votes would make a difference. Many of these ballots get disqualified because people don’t follow the instructions.

Only thing they didn’t count on was the huge numbers that went to the polls and voted for Trump and many fibbed when asked who they voted for at the exit polls. That’s how we have precincts with more than 100% of registered voters in the final tally. If we don’t get out the vote again this time, their ballot harvesting will put Sleepy Slow Joe in office and we will have Kamala Harris as our 46th president.

        Actually if you know enough about what is going on, it makes sense. It brings in the Atlantic Council which I have been screaming about for 3 years now. Also, it brought in General Jones. Something I did not know about. I have had my suspicions about Manafort being too close to Podesta. This is just another validation of that. Not sure if that is new information. So was Millie Weaver really arrested yesterday?

    Clinesmith was the only person that Barr absolutely HAD to convict. He was caught red handed of a simple, easy to understand, easily provable well defined crime. I have read the maximum penalty he was facing was 20 years in prison. It is obvious from his own statements that he had committed multiple crimes. So he was facing a million dollars in legal fees and 20 years in prison. Until Bill Barr brought his brand of “deep state justice” to Clinesmith. Now he is looking at zero legal fees, probably zero or very little prison time, and only one crime. He is very happy tonight because Bill Barr’s deep state justice almost completely let him off the hook. “Cooperation agreement”? We already have plenty of information; we needed nothing from Clinesmith. And some people think Barr “finally did something”. Yeah. Barr’s first move was to let his only sure fire conviction off scott free.

    This is the simplest possible case that could have been presented to a Grand Jury long ago, with the indictment sealed (like the secret Assange indictment).

    This strongly suggests that there has been on Grand Jury active, With the possible exception of mccabe’s ‘lack of candor under oath’ this should be the easiest possible case of changing evidence and information to falsely support an illegal spy warrant made under oath to a secret Star Chamber Court which relies on honesty and full disclosure because the defendants are not represented.

    But this is an ‘information’ cobbled up very recently at clinesmith’s initiative, not the DOJ.

    It is very disappointing that this suggests there have not been Grand Juries going full steam for the past year plus.

    Here’s a horrible thought – these group of traitors would almost certainly have known that the evidence would get out and they’d get caught if Trump wasn’t removed from office. So there is no way they would risk long jail sentences just to help the Democrats and the political left. So they MUST have had a backup plan for when the information got out. These people are evil, not stupid. So what was their backup plan for when this eventuated ? Other than Seth Rich’ing people, the only possibility is the NSA database that Maxine Waters told us about. Right now, a bunch of people – Romney, McConnell, Graham, John Roberts etc are furiously working in the background to have this suppressed. I will bet you that Flynn’s case will be dismissed this week, and then Clinesmith and McCabe will be charged with the same crime (lying) and they will receive the same outcome as Flynn (ie no jail sentence).

    CYA as I understand it is specifying in detail the actions you took in a sensitive matter using a contemporaneous writing in order to avert questions later. It is not an an after-the-fact declaration like Mueller used where one suspects the writer is trying make a distinction that is trivial or nonexistent. It is more damning than exculpatory frankly.

    I feel like a little voice crying in the wilderness at times. A number of times, before the Russian influence BS even was a twinkle in the Clintons’ eyes, I’d posted on the Bureau getting caught a number of time manufacturing or tweaking evidence or using phony ‘experts’, judges have raked them over the coals a number of times. Some y’all might remember how I’d posted a friend of mine and some of hos coworkers were crucified by the DoJ and the Bureau and how the presiding Federal judge wrote a small book of an opinion castigating them all for their less than professional handling of the persecution.

    The Bureau’s pretty much been doing what it wants for a long time, if they felt a guy needed jailin’, they did whatever necessary to jail him. They bragged on TV specials on how they made illegal break-ins to the homes of organized crime or suspected terrorists’ homes and businesses, or used illegal surveillance. We were supposed to take it with a wink as these were ‘known bad guys’ and they needed jailin’.

    A fish rots from the head and in this case that head was Hoover. Hover’s use of unethical, if not downright illegal, methods is legend and the ethos embedded itself in the Bureau – there was a cases where the Bureau knew a murder had been committed but overlooked it as it interfered with another case it was on. Now we have the Bureau as an active and key player in a coup that borders on treason. Burn it to the ground and start over from a new and clean foundation\, America doesn’t need a KGB-lite.

      WILLIAM C. SULLIVAN, EX-F.B.I. AIDE, 65, IS KILLED IN A HUNTING
      ACCIDENT
      FTA:
      In retirement, Mr. Sullivan became even more vocal of Mr.
      Hoover’s nearly five decades of unchallenged leadership of the bureau
      and of its controversial counterintelligence programs, including some
      that he himself had conceived and administered.

      Testifying two years ago before the Senate Intelligence
      Committee, which termed some of his official actions abusive and even
      illegal, Mr. Sullivan declared, “Never once did I hear anybody,
      including myself raise the question, is this course of action which we
      have agreed upon lawful, is it legal, is it ethical or moral?”

      The Senate investigation uncovered considerable detail about
      the counterintelligence programs, collectively labeled Cointelpro by
      the bureau, that were intended to spread confusion and dissension
      among extremist political groups in this country, ranging from the
      Communist Party on the left to the Ku Klux Klan on the right.

      It also developed in the Senate investigations that Mr.
      Sullivan had been instrumental in the arranging for the mailing of a
      tape recording in 1964 to Coretta Scott King, wide of the late Rev.
      Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that contained snippets of Dr. King’s
      conversations with other women that had been overheard by concealed
      F.B.I. microphones.

      Mr. Sullivan was in the news most recently a few weeks ago
      when he acknowledge that he had passed to subordinates instructions
      from Mr. Hoover to use whatever means were necessary in tracking down
      fugitive members of the Weather Underground organization in the early
      1970’s.
      One former agent, John J. Kearney, is now the subject of a
      Federal indictment charging the bureau with having employed illegal
      wiretaps and mail intercepts in those investigations, and Mr. Sullivan
      was expected to have been a principal witness at Mr. Kearney’s trial.

        William Sullivan was shot dead near his home in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, on 9th November, 1977. An inquest decided that he had been shot accidentally by fellow hunter, Robert Daniels, who was fined $500 and lost his hunting license for 10 years.

        SULLIVAN HAD BEEN SCHEDULED TO TESTIFY before the House Select Committee on Assassinations. SULLIVAN WAS ONE OF SIX TOP FBI OFFICIALS WHO DIED IN A SIX MONTH PERIOD IN 1977. Others who were due to appear before the committee who died included Louis Nicholas, special assistant to J. Edgar Hoover and Hoover’s liaison with the Warren Commission; Alan H. Belmont, special assistant to Hoover; James Cadigan, document expert with access to documents that related to death of John F. Kennedy; J. M. English, former head of FBI Forensic Sciences Laboratory where Oswald’s rifle and pistol were tested; Donald Kaylor, FBI fingerprint chemist who examined prints found at the assassination scene.

        At the time of his death SULLIVAN WAS WORKING ON A BOOK with journalist Bill Brown about his experiences with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Bureau: My Thirty Years in Hoover’s FBI was published posthumously in 1979. The book was highly critical of both J. Edgar Hoover and Lyndon B. Johnson.

Clinesmith asked CIA and they acknowledged why sure, Page works for us. Clinesmith altered the email to say the opposite when documentation was required, and separately texted that lie as well. He represented the opposite both in text and with an altered email. Clear purpose was to enable additional FISA approval and *critically* continued legitimization of the Mueller investigation.

    So, Sundance has urged us to take onboard the fact that Mueller’s team has been controlling the information releases (or “leaks”) this whole time, with a deliberate purpose and strategy. Which begs the question — is the Mueller team the architect in this one, too?

    Sundance’s thesis means the IG didn’t discover the falsified document through intrepid digging; it was among information the special counsel team decided he was allowed to have. The leaks displaying political bias — same thing.

    Looks a lot like setting up a fall guy. Hence the proactive distancing in the FN.

    As to the footnote itself — pretty pathetic. Of course all FBI employees are responsible for following FBI rules and procedures, always. There would be no need to point out that an employee remains under FBI “supervision” as far as that goes. It’s a red herring. Of course we know Mueller and his deputies weren’t delegating or deferring to Wray (a Trump appointee) for supervision of anything. How would they explain THAT? The Special Counsel only existed to create a distance from Trump’s Justice appointees.

    I hope Clinesmith’s in a secure undisclosed location.

        I called the CYA footnote pathetic because it’s not likely to work as intended.

        The authors of the Special Counsel’s report are trying in vain to deflect to FBI authority by saying Clinesmith was operating under FBI “supervision” when really following FBI rules and procedures is a given and assumed of all FBI employees — thus, not evidence of direct control by FBI chain of command. I’m saying that the Special counsel’s effort to muddle the fact of its direct supervisory role is a red herring.

        Of course the footnote is CYA. My point is that it’s not likely a very effective CYA.

    Wonder why it takes 9 months for this to come up again after we first heard about it last November. If that is the way the justice system works then we need to change that part of the justice system.
    I have two thoughts that I think I can articulate but want to show this video first.

    So here are my thoughts and they are not completely original. I will identify as such but will not source

    1) Technofog, who is excellent, had a couple of post, but one asked “who else in SC knows.” I read the comments and the group was convinced that Clinesmith agreeing to the lesser charge of lying sets the stage for a conspiracy theory. They sited the charging documents and basically think that Clinesmith was told to change the email identifying Carter Page as an informant.
    I agree with the basics that more senior SC principals were aware of Carter Page. But I am suggesting a twist and of course I have no evidence only speculation. But It should be easy to prove.

    First here is some more video:

    So Carter Page was involved in a Russia spy case in 2010-2013. He was an FBI Operational Source and there was a FISA with him identified in the filings. March 16, 2016 Eric Holder, Preet Bahrara, and John Carlin (NSD) call him in and ask him to help there case along by being less than truthful. He said no. And I think this is when Carter Page became a target of DOJ/FBI Washington. When he joins the campaign 6 days later who knows what runs through their criminal minds.

    Apparently there are emails from SDNY to Strzok and McCabe. Carter Page was also identified to Loretta Lynch in the spring of 2016 and Comey prepared a NSC memo on CP. I dont see how this group (Holder,Bharara,Carlin) can refer CP to Washington without communicating who he is. I think they covered this up to the field lawyers like Clinesmith and the Hubris of the 7th floor principals allowed them to rationalize the coverup.

    I don’t think Clinesmith knew who Carter Page was till the third renewal, but I also think this brings a whole new line up of scum into play including the Obama Money Center bank prosecutor Preet Bharara . This also moves the start date back to March 2016 for Russia-gate. And I think the first video of Preet Bharara allows us to watch a criminal basically make comments on a crime he committed. a Pathological lawyer.

      Interesting take. Also, I like that it ties in this whole thing back to early 2016. Because it proves, they were trying to get someone much earlier than end of July 2016.

      What was early in 2016 these same people were working on or worried about? Clinton emails, Weiner laptop. It is all the same people at the FBI.

        SD made a great point that I tend not to recognize and it explains a bunch. This was highly compartmentalized. I dont think a 38 year old would sign off or alter anything the head of FBI counter Intel told him to or that Srtzok’s cronies directed him on. Would you have as a rising FBI lawyer/star? It came from the 7th floor.

        Also hearing the name Carter Page to him was probably like when we heard the name George Papadopoulos…who…what? Finally this transition from SDNY to Washington would be a great transition point to bring two nefarious scum into play:

        Preet Bharara was in charge of the money laundering cases by the big international money center banks in NY, but he also ties in William Browder who I think plays a tremendous role in this whole thing. He is a Gypsy grifter criminal who dealt with all the Russian and Ukraine oligarchs and crooks. Money Laundering, gun running etc… I also think he is the single person who developed the narrative of Putin being a bad guy. Look him up. Browder is Preet’s hero. PREVEZON

        Preet tried to dupe America’s James bond when he messed with Carter Page,

          If Carter Page was a CIA asset, I’m not convinced he was asked to sidle up to the Trump campaign, and agreed to do so.

          We know how the intelligence community was using FISA. Is it a huge leap that CIA/FBI “coordination” would involve insertion of “FISA plants” — ie, individuals with known and controlled interaction with foreign nationals directed to get involved with domestic targets for purposes of establishing themselves as a surveillance hub.

          All it would require is carefully curated compartmentalization, so that those creating the FISA Apps wouldn’t know. E.g., why didn’t anyone bother to ask the question until the 3rd renewal? Page was former naval intelligence. The FBI was going to a court for a warrant to surveil him because of foreign contacts. Checking to see if Page was in touch with US intelligence would (or should be part of early vetting). But no one checked until the third renewal. AFTER Carter page’s activity as a CIA informant was reported in the press, thus forcing their hand to formally ask (ie, removing innocent ignorance).

              Yes – the theory that Page was a CIA asset used to infiltrate the Trump campaign has been out there from the start of the unravelling. Once this is accepted, the dots connect. Page traveled to Moscow for a few days in early July 2016, where he gave a lecture critical of US foreign policy and later met with Russians whom he described as academic scholars and business leaders. The FBI position was he had been compromised by Russian operatives. Page was part of the setup, with the Russia meeting arranged to deliberately provide grounds for the FISA.

              For someone who completed a fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations and a PhD, Page comes across in interviews as confusing and contradictory – well versed in spook behaviour.

          In the interest of deterrence, a federal prosecutor charging a defendant with criminal conduct while in the service of some governmental capacity should hold the luxury of choosing jurisdictions between the location the criminal act, the location of any target of the criminal conduct, or any state connected to the criminal conduct, including the asserted or actual residence of a defendant or victim. Our Founding Fathers would roll in their graves over any reality to your aptly surmised ‘D.C. designed free crime zone’.

        FBI agents…

        “Among the general discussion of political issues by FBI Attorney 2, we identified three instant message exchanges that raised concerns of potential bias. The first of these exchanges was on October 28, 2016, shortly after Comey’s October 28 letter to Congress that effectively announced the reopening of the Midyear investigation. FBI Attorney 2 sent similar messages to four different FBI employees. The timestamps of these messages are included below. The messages stated:

        13:44:42, to FBI Employee 1: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”
        13:44:52, to FBI Employee 2: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”
        14:01:52, to FBI Employee 3: “As I have initiated the destruction of the republic…. Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon?”
        15:28:50, to FBI Employee 4: “I’m clinging to small pockets of happiness in the dark time of the Republic’s destruction”

        Notice that the IG’s report notes that this is the same time Comey initiated the second review of Hillary’s emails after finding them on pervert Anthony Weiner’s laptop. But what the IG does not say (perhaps because they did not know it at the time) is that this was right after the initial FISA application to spy on Carter Page and then candidate Trump was initiated!”

    I’m wondering if the DOJ needed this admission of guilt to lite the fuse and be the first domino proving a spying conspiracy?

    And if so, does this chip give the DOJ probable cause to go use the NSA database to review and
    track all spying co-conspirators emails, texts, phone calls?

    They already had the NSA Search Query Contractor Abuse Evidence from Adm Rodger and Judge Collyer but maybe needed someone within the FIB/DOJ team to actually allow this deep dive of the NSA Database to follow?

    Kind of like they needed CP in order to “justify” the two hop spying on PT and his team.

    Sundance said there is another person a Mr. XXXXX and that Durham is a head fake. Imagine Russia Collusion or said another way, a coup on a sitting President is a head fake.

    What could be bigger or more important than a coup on a sitting President?

    So we know today the following US Attorneys involvement and responsibility:

    Durham – U.S. Attorney for CT – Investigate Russia Collusion

    Huber – U.S. Attorney for Utah – Investigate Uranium One & CF

    Jensen – U.S. Attorney for Eastern District of Missouri – Flynn Case

    Scott Brady – U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, will assist in the “receipt, processing and preliminary analysis of new information provided by the public that may be relevant to matters relating to Ukraine.” (I.e. Rudy’s Ukraine info)

    Richard Donoghue, U.S. Attorney for Eastern District of New York, has been assigned to coordinate any investigations and other Ukraine related-matters.

    We have Russia Collusion, Uranium One, CF, Ukraine being investigated. So what is missing?

    How about Illegal Spying from 2009-2017? Which US Attorney has been given that category?

    Also note that Richard Donoghue has been assigned TO COORDINATE ANY INVESTIGATIONS

    So if Durham is a head fake, does this mean all of these investigations have been or are being coordinated under Richard Donoghue?

    So back to my earlier question, what could be bigger than a coup on a sitting President?

    How about a massive spying and RICO operation that touches all branches of government, used to gather information on thousands of key Americans for leverage, insider information that you can sell to fund your organization’s mission over the past 12 years?

    It seems to me that we are going to have a boom or bust operation. No middle ground. It’s either a sweeper operation or a massive RICO/Spying Operation.

    I’m also keeping a close eye on Mark Klaassen US Attorney for Wyoming as Barr was with him in Cheyenne yesterday and I don’t believe in coincidences.

    Sundance is on to something with whoever Mr. XXXXX is and whatever it is it isn’t about Russia Collusion so what is it?

    Hopefully come Tuesday it all becomes clear.

    I have known many Clinesmiths in my life. They were the kids that nobody wanted to be friends with or date. They were often ignored or even bullied. They volunteered to be hall monitor and they snitched or ratted out other kids. Maybe they got to be class president. Sometimes they hurt small animals. They were people pleasers.
    At some point, as when they became adults and went out in the world, they figured out that a Government job was perfect. Great salary and benefits, not a lot to do, but plenty of POWER over others. Now THEY were in charge.
    Just imagine the f**** up psyche of a creep like Clinesmith who actually got into the inner circle of the FBI. Power beyond his wildest dreams AND he could finally get revenge on the “others”. Nobody could touch him, he was protected.
    I wonder how he’s been affected by getting busted. I wonder if Clinesmith is afraid now, for himself or others. My guess is that he is like the proverbial rat leaving a sinking ship. He will do anything to save himself and the hell with everyone else.

      That’s why this can only be taken as positive news. A guy like him would never have pleaded guilty, ruining his life, unless he were under tremendous pressure. Now the question is, did the pressure come from Durham’s team (my guess), or did it come from the Weissman/Mueller/Deep State team, that needs a sacrificial lamb? Or it could be some combination of both, where Durham is colluding with the Deep Statists, but I doubt that.

      This isn’t a process crime, this isn’t the same as Wolfe deal, it’s a huge admission of illegitimacy from the cabal. Notice the silence from Comey, McCabe, Stryzk and Lisa Page? Why aren’t they jumping up and down disputing Clinesmith?????
