A former FBI and Robert Mueller probe lawyer pleaded guilty Wednesday to falsifying government documents in the first indictment filed by Special Counsel John Durham, who has been charged with investigating federal misconduct related to the illegal surveillance of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and early administration.

Clinesmith admitted to falsely editing a CIA email in order to secure a warrant for continued surveillance of Trump campaign official Carter Page, enabling political surveillance of the campaign on fraudulent grounds.

Clinesmith went on to claim that Page wasn’t a source of the CIA when speaking to FBI officials in 2017, while CIA officials have told the agency on multiple occasions that the foreign policy professional was in fact working with them.

The falsified emails accessed by Clinesmith went on to approve a crucial FISA surveillance warrant on Page.

The longtime federal lawyer later went on to work on Robert Mueller’s Russia conspiracy probe, an acute irony, considering the deep state operative is now facing sentencing for federal charges filed by yet another special counsel.

Judge James Boasberg reviewed a ten page plea agreement between Clinesmith and Durham’s office before accepting the lawyer’s guilty plea over the phone on Wednesday. The sentencing guideline suggested in the plea recommends between zero and six months in federal prison, although the maximum penalty for the charge is five years in prison. The lawyer’s sentencing is set for December 10th.

His indictment is only the first resulting from Durham’s prove, and additional indictments of Deep State corrupt federal officials is expected.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
