U.S. Attorney John Durham’s first deep state domino toppled today. Kevin Clinesmith, a former FBI lawyer who helped launch the bogus Russiagate hoax by fabricating evidence, is the first to reportedly plead guilty. Hopefully Clinesmith sung so that Durham may topple his next deep state domino soon.
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.”– Clinesmith texts to fellow FBI lawyer after Trump won
