More coming next week. Clinesmith is just the beginning. Lowest big name. Despite what you hear, what came out today is a big deal. He isn’t a small name. Crosses party lines. I told you it was coming.

FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump said Friday the news that former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith will plead guilty to making a false statement is “just the beginning” of the fallout from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation.
“That’s just the beginning, I would imagine. This… what happened should never happen again,” Trump said at a White House briefing Friday afternoon. “You’ll be hearing more.”
He also called Clinesmith a “corrupt FBI attorney,” part of former FBI Director James Comey’s “very corrupt FBI.”
Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office over an altered email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page claiming 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.
Two sources close to the investigation told Fox News on Friday that Clinesmith will plead guilty.
“Kevin deeply regrets having altered the email. It was never his intent to mislead the court or his colleagues as he believed the information he relayed was accurate,” Shur said in a statement. “But Kevin understands what he did was wrong and accepts responsibility.”
The Department of Justice charging document states the Clinesmith “did willfully and knowingly make and use a false writing and document, knowing the same to contain a materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statement and entry in a matter before the jurisdiction of the executive branch and judicial branch of the Government of the United States.”
The charges say that Clinesmith altered another officials email to say that Page, was not a CIA “source,” which had not be specified in the original email. Page was in fact a CIA informant, which was committed in the 2017 FISA warrant.
Durham was appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr in 2019 to investigate the FBI’s origins of the Russia Probe.
“I said the American people need to know what actually happened, we need to get the story of what happened in 2016 and ’17 out. That will be done,” Barr said in an interview with Fox News’ “Hannity.”
Adding that “if people crossed the line, if people involved in that activity violated criminal law, they will be charged.”
Trump has voiced his vested interest in the case saying that he hopes Durham will not be “politically correct” and added that Barr could go down in history as “the greatest attorney general” or just “an average guy,” depending on the outcome of the investigation.
Democrats have voiced their concerns that Barr will use his position as AG to go after Trumps “enemies.”
In a recent podcast, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif, said Barr “may be using the power of the Justice Department through Durham or others to go after the president’s enemies.”
Schiff’s statement just reeks of irony and a lack of self-awareness, doesn’t it, boys and girls?
Haven’t the Democrats spent President Trump’s entire first term attempting to remove him from office via means of the Legislature, one of our three branches of government?
When everything is said and done, Americans will discover that this whole Democrat-supported “Lawfare” against Trump resembles a spider’s web in its malevolent intricacy with its “alarm thread” leading directly back to the Obama and Hillary.
The incestuous nature of “Spygate” resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice as large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.
This was a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.
The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.
That is why they are feverishly attempting to prevent him from being reelected to a second term.
Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as
: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority
That being said, the intentional interference in the passage of Presidential Authority from one political party to another as the result of a fairly held election as prescribed by our Constitution can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy is detailed as follows..
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens have been under attack by both members of a Former Presidential Administration and by past members of our own Department of Justice.
I believe that it is time that the laws against interference with our fairly elected government be enforced against those who would sabotage their own country for the sake of their own egos, to assuage their hurt and anger from a lost Presidential Election, and to preserve a legacy of failure which average Americans did not wish to continue.
I also believe that the long-awaited results of the Durham Investigation must result in no less than indictments against all of those former and present “public servants” who have engaged in the Seditious Conspiracy to subjugate the will of the American people and to overthrow our nation’s government from within.
Our Sovereign Nation must remain a Constitutional Republic in order to preserve our liberty.
