Kevin Clinesmith: Read Former FBI Lawyer’s Texts on TrumP

Kevin Clinesmith is a former FBI lawyer expected to be accused of altering an email that was used to justify a court’s wiretap approval into Carter Page, a former advisor for Donald Trump. He’s also the author of anti-Trump and anti-Mike Pence texts that resulted in his leaving the Russia investigation. You can read those texts throughout this article. One of the more memorable ones declared, “Viva le resistance.”

Clinesmith may be referred for criminal charges as a result, The Times previously reported. On August 14, the Times reported, via three sources, that Clinesmith, a “former F.B.I. lawyer,” intends “to plead guilty to falsifying a document as part of a deal with prosecutors conducting their own criminal inquiry of the Russia investigation.” According to The Times, Clinesmith “plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency.”

The New York Times reported on November 22, 2019 that investigators for the inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, “uncovered errors and omissions in documents” relating to the Page wiretap, and Horowitz has referred his investigative findings against Clinesmith for possible criminal charges. The Horowitz report into the Russia investigation’s beginnings has not yet been released, however.

Clinesmith, who resigned about two months ago, exited the Russia investigation in 2018 after it emerged that he had written text messages showing dislike of Trump, The Times reported. However, the newspaper added that some top FBI officials, including former FBI Director James Comey, were not accused of anti-Trump bias in the new report. The Times reported that Clinesmith is accused of adding information to an email in a way that made it appear the information came from its author.

It’s not the first time that Clinesmith’s name has surfaced in connection with possible anti-Trump bias. In 2018, GOP Congressman Mark Meadows publicly accused Clinesmith of possibly being an FBI lawyer described in the inspector general’s earlier report into the Clinton email investigation as writing anti-Trump messages, including one that declared “viva le resistance.” The Times confirmed on November 22, 2019, that Clinesmith wrote those texts, saying that Horowitz’s 2018 report “identified him as “F.B.I. Attorney 2.”

Ex-FBI Lawyer to Plead Guilty in John Durham Probe for Falsifying Document Used to Investigate Trump Campaign

Kevin Clinesmith, a former Federal Bureau of Investigations lawyer, will plead guilty to a felony count for falsifying an email that was used to obtain a wiretap on Trump campaign aide Carter Page, according to court documents.

Clinesmith, 38, was an Assistant General Counsel in the National Security and Cyber Law Branch of the FBI’s General Counsel, and was assigned to provide legal support for the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign for alleged collusion, known as Crossfire Hurricane.

Part of his job was to help FBI agents working on the investigation prepare Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications to present to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to obtain wiretaps warrants.

He helped them obtain four warrants to wiretap Page on the basis that he might be a Russian agent.

According to court documents, the CIA in August 2016 had told “certain members” of the investigating team that Page — rather than being a Russian agent — was approved as an “operational contact” for the agency from 2008 to 2013, but that information was never added to any surveillance warrant applications.

Before the fourth application, an FBI Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) asked Clinesmith to ask the CIA whether Page had ever been a source for the CIA.

Clinesmith sent an email to the CIA on June 15, 2017, asking if Page had been a source. Later that same day, a CIA liaison responded with documents that included the previously sent information and indicated Page had been a source. Clinesmith responded, “Thanks so much for that information.”

However, when the SSA texted Clinesmith and asked for a follow up on the question about Page, Clinesmith responded that Page “was never a source.”

The SSA asked if Clinesmith had that in writing, and Clinesmith said he did and would forward an email from the CIA liaison.

Clinesmith then, from his office at the Hoover Building, forwarded the liaison’s email to the SSA, but with alterations to falsely indicate that the liaison had told him that Page was not a source for the CIA.

Clinesmith added the words “and not a source” into the liaison’s email to him before forwarding it to the SSA, a material change of a document used for a federal investigation.

Relying on Clinesmith’s altered email, the SSA signed and submitted the fourth wiretap application to the FISC on June 29, 2017, for the fourth warrant on Page.

Comex silver

Posted by redneckokie1 @ 19:44 on February 1, 2021  

Down 80 cents in after hours. Looks like some buying going on at the lower Bollinger band on the 15 minute chart. Big gap still in play. A rally into the green would be a start on a flag or pennant.


Here come the scum…no way a 2nd day allowed

Posted by Maddog @ 19:23 on February 1, 2021  

Looks like it will be a long night.

Checked my dealer for silver – pretty much sold out

Posted by Buygold @ 18:55 on February 1, 2021  

What they do have left in silver is at some serious premiums.


deer79 – no surprise from the CME

Posted by Buygold @ 18:46 on February 1, 2021  

They always protect their paper players from the bullion banks.

IMHO – their problem is not in the futures market, it’s in SLV. So I guess we can expect the brokerages to limit the buys in SLV and some of the mining shares associated with silver.

Just hope the WSB/Reddit guys and Hedge Funds keep plowing into the SLV ETF to wipe out both SLV and the paper markets.

And then ……..

Goldie very true.

“You can almost tell the ones who never had those physical jobs or start up jobs with low wages by the way they tip.”

That was strange. Not like he bought a coffee in those days.
I started avoiding those valets when I heard in southern Calif at one place someone or more than one was making copies of their keys while they were having dinner. I guess they didn’t like the bad tips lol

Shovel snow, sounds life fun. Just remember when you get older it’s a higher risk of a heart attack in extreme weather with way do be careful. Maybe a snow mobile with a shovel on the front lol

Looks like AMPEX maybe others went short to cover any losses incase the price went back down and bet the wrong way maybe so stopped selling. Now I get a text on higher prices but not as high as it was but still too high to cover that I’m guessing.

I don’t remember his car, I don’t think it was amazing or anything trashy. I think even a normal person could afford a better tip or if they lost all their money then no tip at all, that would have been alright.

Still a pretty good close

Posted by Buygold @ 16:52 on February 1, 2021  

I thought they’d take gold all the way down but they didn’t even with the USD up a half % – surprising.

Silver while off the highs still had a good day.

Some of the shares did really well, only laggards were the large cap miners like NEM and GOLD.

Be interesting to see if this is sustainable for the little guys, no doubt there will be a lot of pressure from the scum at the Crimex and London.

Right thanks for the input, I gotta go out now and shovel snow, happy mining.


Posted by Maddog @ 15:58 on February 1, 2021  

The machines sold tdys openings just like every day we get a strong opening….the programmes have not been changed one bit…they know their mates in the scum/Fed will bang it all back down and they can cover, when the longs puke…well that is the theory…b ut when u get the Chinese pileing in as well….and if the Indians wake up…which they will….well that is 2.6 billion people…..if only 10 % wake up…260 million….that’s a lot of oz’s.

They’re selling like crazy now…to cap the close….

Last night before I stopped watching silver got to 29:64 so looks like the bigger manipulation is here and oversea is aware of this move.

Ampex just text me a silver sale lol

Posted by goldielocks @ 15:42 on February 1, 2021  

Lol a sale?? This is how they halt or bring down the market and do it in futures too raising the price. Here it might just be demand though.

Ya Know? With a little dumb luck? And Silver up near $29?

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 15:36 on February 1, 2021  

The givhead fund managers or their machines accidently short Silver and it breaks out higher again tomorrow and they get killed again.


Posted by Maddog @ 15:33 on February 1, 2021  

If we really break out, then it will be interesting to see what happens …as my bet is there is no way the Crimex figures show anything like what is really short…U have the whole London mkt, which shows no O/I figs, then u have all the Dark Pool shorts, which I doubt are registered anywhere, then u have the offshore shorts in stox.

We have seen decades of them stomping the mkts and very few signs of them really short covering….hell they sold tdys opening right down, just like every up day since when…

Don’t get me wrong, I doubt the Fed will ever cover it’s shorts, they simply couldn’t, but there must be loads of their ‘mates’ who have piggy backed them, who will have to cover if prices go too far….


Posted by Maddog @ 15:23 on February 1, 2021  

They’d have been great mates….imagine how long they’s spend arguing over the tip…..they’d still be there in the morning.

RECALL BIDEN ! along with Cal Governor

Posted by Ororeef @ 15:09 on February 1, 2021  

If Democrats can impeach Trump while out of office,the same logic demands that Biden be recalled while in office..WHEN The Constitution is not valid for one ,its not valid for the other .

Silver flagpole

Posted by redneckokie1 @ 15:01 on February 1, 2021  

Looks like a good place for silver to build a good bull flag or pennant. A five to seven day sideways movement would confirm it. Beware! A tight short squeeze will blow out any technical formation, resistance, moving average and anything else technical in nature.


Just a reminder, half the people (positions) in Comex silver are short. Watch the open interest (number of contracts). If it starts to decline rapidly, an explosive up move will follow. When all the weak shorts are out, the party is over.

Just curious what that big millionaire was driving. Was he a millionaire or a BS-er. It seemed our era where they took advantage of youth. Wanted them to work harder for less. It did teach us what waisted energy was with our time. I remember some boys telling me they would find golf balls on the court for golfers and some kid said some guy was trying to pay him with half a penny. I guess he not only trying to get away with paying only once cent but wanted two for one.


Posted by ipso facto @ 13:35 on February 1, 2021  

When I was going to school in Reno in 75 I had this job parking cars at the Mapes Hotel. One night a guy came out and was talking to us about how he was a big millionaire blah blah blah. I went and got the guy’s car for him and he tipped me … a dime. Even back then a dime wasn’t worth much. It was pretty funny. 🙂

Bunker Hunt and this guy would have been famous friends!


Posted by Maddog @ 13:26 on February 1, 2021  

When Bunker was selling his wife those vegetables, he had the Sarir field in Libya, the largest……..he was worth @ $ 55 billion in todays money !!!!

Move along … nothing to see here …

Facebook Oversight Reverses Hydroxychloroquine Censorship Decision

Facebook’s independent Oversight Board has ruled against the social media giant’s decision to remove an October 2020 post touting hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) – the antimalarial which Democrats and their media surrogates were cautiously optimistic about until former President Trump promoted it.
