Finally, an Obamagate scalp


No excitement without an indictment, but how about a little exhilaration for an information?

A member of Barack Obama's administration has admitted he committed felonious behavior against President Donald John Trump, whom Obama lied on and spied on.

The man whom Obama got to brief President-elect admitted that he tried to frame Donald Trump as a Russian agent and otherwise wreak havoc in Obama's resistance to the results of the 2016 election.

None of this surprises us. We know all this to be true and have known for several years now.

No, the news is John Durham finally got off his ass and nailed one of the Sons of a Michelle who did this to our republic. There may be justice after all.

I have been saying no excitement without an indictment. This is heartening.

Fox reported, "Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith will plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham's review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign, two sources close to the matter tell Fox News.

"Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department's inspector general's office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation.

"Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that he was "not a source" for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The DOJ relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act."

They did not eavesdrop.

They spied -- on Donald Trump using their lies about Carter Page to get a warrant under false pretenses.

The New York Times (no links to pay sites) reported, "Mr. Clinesmith was among the F.B.I. officials whom Mr. Mueller removed from the Russia investigation after Mr. Horowitz found messages they had exchanged expressing political animus against Mr. Trump. Shortly after Mr. Trump’s election victory, Mr. Clinesmith texted another official: 'I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues, too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost.'

"In another text, he wrote, 'viva le resistance.'

"Mr. Clinesmith told the inspector general that he was expressing his personal views but did not let them affect his work.

"Mr. Clinesmith also argued against the prospect of wiretapping another former Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, who served two weeks in jail on a charge of lying to the F.B.I., according to the Horowitz report. The inspector general said the bureau never sought to surveil him."

Meanwhile, Jeff Zucker cast shade on this by posting a story, "US intel report on Russia could undercut Trump's hopes for Durham probe."

That is the same intelligence community that did this to President Trump.

Up their Kamala.

Clinesmith like Obama used the FBI for political purposes and sedition.

I want his pension pulled.

That won't happen because Barr and Durham will do the minimum to get by.

The reporting on Clinesmith's admission to abusing power informs me Biden or Harris will pardon him if America is foolish enough not to re-elect President Trump.

We will see if this rat Clinsemith rats on anyone important. I doubt it, although that is how filing an information instead of indicting the bastard works.

Excuse me, I said bastard instead of Barack.

  1. The guy over at The conservative treehouse, Sundance, had said there would be a reveal this Friday but much bigger stuff was coming down the pike. He is usually a gloomy gus but must have gotten some inside info on what will go down in a few short weeks as he is very chirpy and upbeat. I guess we will see shortly. I am like Don, I am not expecting much as the Swamp takes care of its own.

    1. Sundance is a good guy.

      My understanding is there is a September 4 deadline, otherwise it must by protocol wait till post election

    2. Interesting as I think Barr and other DOJ officials have said there is no imaginary shot clock to reveal indictments 60 days out from an election, the investigation will end when it ends. We know it didn't stop Lawrence Walsh from indicting Casper Weinberger during the 1992 election. I guess we will see!

    3. The September 4 deadline is for Republicans, not Democrats.

      And I doubt Sundance gives a s**t anymore about 'protocols' and 'understandings'. He's pissed and IMO he intends to start a fire that won't stop until the entire DOJ warehouse full of ammonium nitrate goes up.

      And also IMO I think Barr et al are just fine with that. Because when the s**t hits the fan they can't be blamed for it.

    4. This smells like desperation on Barr's part. Anything to please his master while the golfer-in-chief's presidency circles the drain.

  2. I hope he talks and talks and talks.

    I am shocked the NYTimes reported this story. Even if they did so with bias and prejudice.

  3. Don, please let the pros handle this. I'm sure their time has been well spent. I understand everybody and his brother knows better than Trump how to handle things, only they don't. As an example, there is a plea bargain involved here, which means admission of guilt. I'm waiting for the Media to state they cannot exonerate the participants in the coup, as they fall all over themselves admitting their part and accusing others.

  6. I’ll be honest...I’ve used many an exercise band workout over the last six months getting stoked/motivated with the picture of Kiev’s face in my head. Stinkin pajama boy POS makin 150k or so, livin in NoVa, fancying himself a modern day Serpico. “Fook the chain of command! I have a HIGHER LOYALTY!!” No you don’t, you geek-assed motherf—. I hope Ed’s right, but if he isn’t I’m still happy as hell. One traitor jailed, one fooking traitor jailed. One less FBI fook to worry about.

  7. On the one hand, I'm with Don in that "I'll believe it when I see it."

    On the other hand, note how this was basically done as a Friday news dump. I have a sneaking suspicion that this guy sang like a songbird in implicating others, or at least was instrumental in giving the roadmap as to who, when, and where.

    P.S. It's pronounced 'KAL-I-MA', like in the Indiana Jones movie.

  8. So a guy is pleading guilty to making a typo on a form?

    It really needn't be said, but this seems far less severe than the crimes Flynn pled guilty to.

    And you expect this guy to turn on Obama (for what?) because he essentially got arrested for jaywalking?

    You are all nuts.

    2. I guess the right wing will never stop chasing silly conspiracy theories.

      Next thing you know there will be some random guy on the internet named Q who gets his jollies trolling RWNJs with tales of child trafficking pizza parlours. Oh, wait...

    3. How about we just wait on Rolands brilliant sarcasm to figure it out. Since he seems to fear reasonable debate, I figure letting him crow about his personal bullshit knowledge should be entertaining.

    4. Tom, with all due respect, I believe quack is more accurate than crow. and I do believe this is not Roland's first quack attack on this board.

      he waddles in, craps, quacks and runs.

  12. Kevin Clinesmith pled guilty to ONE COUNT. I hear that’s your clue he is cooperating in every way he can to avoid being hit with the whole list of his felonies. But, we have no way to know if he’s actually making a useful difference. While I am pleased: this has taken SO LONG, getting me to excitement will require a lot more than this one indictment.

  13. I remember that one of the lawyers disbarred for the fraudulent prosecution of Ted Stevens committed suicide. I wonder if it was Arkanicide. I hope that Clinesmith is in protective custody,although it didn't seem to help Jeffrey Epstein survive.
