Shocked, Shocked!

Who would have believed it?

Clinton lawyer charged with lying to FBI during Trump-Russia inquiry
Michael Sussmann is second person to be indicted in William Barr-ordered investigation of the investigators

When investigating who might have lied it is – allegedly – one of the Clinton lawyers. Who could believe such a thing?

  1. I believe that the Statute of Limitations (time tolling) runs out tomorrow or the next day. If you’re familiar with the American football term “Hail Mary pass” . . .

  2. Yes he’s really going to pay. Rather like this one:-

    “Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was sentenced to 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service Friday after pleading guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe”.

    and the punishment didn’t stop there:-

    “Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith has agreed to a one-year suspension of his attorney license in Washington, D.C., following his conviction in August 2020 on a felony false-statement charge “.

  3. The important bits are in the indictment: that he was confecting fake evidence of Trump’s collaboration with Alfabank to pass to the FBI, using an unnamed IT overlord and the resources of a federally funded university in order to pass it off as authentic, all on the Clinton dime for which he billed them. He left it to the last moment, perhaps to allow the unnamed coconspirators to sleep more easily.

  4. Yarp, what John said.

    This is pro-forma stuff. Give a couple of the minor players a light slap on the wrist, then case closed.

    If they were serious about this, multiple senior people from the US Government and its alphabet agencies would be facing charges of treason. But the Durham “investigation” was always part of the strategy to pretend to be Doing Something while stalling for time until they could get Orange Badman out.

    Nota Benny random Baby Boomers who showed up to peacefully protest election fraud are still being hounded into federal prison by the FBI. The US is a shitty banana republic “led” by an illegally installed corpse. No flowers.
