Per The Conservative Treehouse, here’s what happened yesterday to former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith from his involvement in the Crossfire Hurricane attack.
It’s not an indictment, it’s a Criminal Information with no grand jury, which suggests counsel for defendant approached DOJ to structure an agreement. The plea agreement likely also included an agreement for method of public release. Last year John Spiropoulos explained the Clinesmith information for OAN TV.
The Federalist’s Sean Davis remembers, “Clinesmith’s name first made national news after his anti-Trump text messages to another FBI attorney, Sally Moyer, surfaced following a separate OIG investigation of anti-Trump bias from top FBI attorneys and investigators.
“’I’m just devastated,’ Clinesmith texted to Moyer shortly after Trump won the presidential election in November of 2016. ‘Plus, my god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff,’ Clinesmith wrote.
“’Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?’ Moyer later asked Clinesmith, ostensibly referring to Clinesmith’s plan to remain at the FBI after Trump’s inauguration.
“’Hell no,’ Clinesmith responded. ‘Viva le resistance.’”
Here’s hoping he actually gets some jail time or squeals big time against Comey, McCabe, Strozk and company.
