FBI Lawyer Who Altered FISA Docs and a Corrupt Intelligence Inspector General

“FBI Lawyer Who Altered FISA Docs and His Lover Worked for Current ICIG Who Edited IC WhistleBlower Form to Legitimize Impeachment Sham” – so goes the headline. That is just the start of what we are learning. Our man IG Atkinson now goes under scrutiny. The intersect.

Michael Atkinson the Intelligence Inspector General is about to have a great fall. Atkinson played as big a role in the latest impeachment charade as did the new characters who have just emerged as the latest stars in this moving mystery show.

Kevin Clinesmith

The individual (or individuals) has been identified as Kevin Clinesmith  who altered FISA docs, who worked with his reported lover Sally Moyer for the current Intelligence Community (IC) Inspector General (IG), Michael Atkinson. Keep in mind  Atkinson only assumed this position in May of 2018. Only the second Inspector General for the Intelligence Community. Keep the dates in mind as we move forward with the story.

So much for Clinesmith being a a low level attorney as reported.

Conservative Treehouse reported –

Kevin Clinesmith was one of the key FBI small group members on the original Clinton investigation known as the “mid-year exam”, or in text messages the “MYE”.

Within the MYE Clinesmith was one of the key legal staff working with Peter Strzok. Clinesmith was lawyer #2 for Strzok who eventually transferred to the subsequent Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

Clinesmith was also previously reported to be having an intimate relationship with another member of the FBI team, Sally Moyer, though that is uncertain. [Tashina “Tash” Guahar was also a key legal figure on the Main Justice side of the MYE team.]

Sally Moyer was FBI unit chief in the Office of General Counsel (counterintelligence legal unit within the FBI Office of General Counsel).

Ms. Moyer was responsible for the legal compliance within the FBI counterintelligence operations that generated FISA applications.

When the MYE investigation finished, the Carter Page FISA construction is where Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer come together in their next assignment, the FBI investigation of Trump.

Michael Atkinson

Michael Atkinson only assumed office on May 17, 2018.  Approved by a voice vote.

Nominated in November 2017. A modicum of investigation of this man would have revealed major red flags with this fellow. The Mueller probe started May 17, 2017.

On May 17, 2017, Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel overseeing an investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and related matters.

In July 2016, the exact month that former FBI Director James Comey officially opened a case against the Trump campaign, Atkinson was named senior counsel to John Carlin, the head of the National Security Division. Carlin was Robert Mueller’s chief of staff when he ran the FBI and was appointed NSD chief by President Obama in 2013.

Carlin’s name has surfaced numerous times in the congressional inquiry into the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

According to closed-door testimony by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Carlin regularly was briefed by former deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe on the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Under questioning by Rep. James Jordan (R-Ohio) last year, one of Carlin’s top aides confirmed that Carlin notified him in August 2016 – one month after Atkinson joined Carlin as senior counsel- that the FBI had opened an investigation into the Trump campaign and that a team of NSD officials worked with the FBI on the case.

That means Carlin’s shop was involved in handling the FISA warrant on Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The original FISA warrant, signed by former FBI Director James Comey and Carlin’s colleague, former deputy attorney general Sally Yates, used the bogus Steele dossier as evidence to obtain the FISA court’s permission to spy on Page for one year. The warrant accused Page of being a foreign agent yet he has never been charged with a crime.

Another red flag is that Atkinson sent two letters about the “whistleblower” to the House Intelligence committee instead of its Senate counterpart. During his January 2018 public testimony to the Senate Intelligence committee prior to his confirmation, Atkinson said if there was a dispute with the Director of National Intelligence about the veracity of a claim, he would “talk to this Committee if that situation arose to that level, to keep you informed about those events.”

But Atkinson instead notified the highly-partisan House Intelligence committee led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the same lawmaker who has lied to the American people for three years about evidence of Russian collusion. In a letter dated September 9 addressed to Schiff and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Atkinson alerted the committee that the acting Director of National Intelligence did not agree with Atkinson’s judgment that the claim was an “urgent concern.” (An assessment somewhat laughable now that the call’s transcript is public.)

Atkinson saw to it that the whistleblower form was updated to allow for second hand information, which the ‘whistleblower’ (believed to be Eric Ciaramella) provided in his complaint.  Although, the form should not have been accepted based on second-hand information and because it was about the President of the United States (who is not in the IC), Atkinson accepted the complaint.

The whistleblower later attempted to edit the form he originally provided.  The original form stated that the whistleblower did not talk to Congress before filing the form but after it was discovered that he had met with Adam Schiff’s team in Congress, the whistleblower attempted to edit his form.

    Great find! It looks like this is sounding familiar to the IRS targeting scandal where we were told low level rogue employees were behind the targeting only to find out later it came straight from the top.

    The definition of a crazy person is one who watches the same movie over and over and expects a different ending each time. So then given the fact we on the right don’t ever expect a different ending we must be somewhat sane.
    And while Trump wasn’t a seasoned politician he should have had the common sense, as well as those around him should have had, to know and should have known you don’t leave the democrat flotsam and jetsam of assorted swamp creatures in places where their subterfuge can easily go undetected. Should Trump win a second term he needs to work from the West Palm WH while having roach bombs set off in the DC WH and after start off clean; and possibly hire private security comprised of ex-Navy Seals. We can dream can’t we?

      He trusted the wrong people….. never ever leave as you say the flotsam and jetsam. This was the most perverse….yet. unless you read the depo’s one would never know that it is all out there to be found. So well said Peter and I thank you…. Why in the world does the CIA take the notes of his telephone calls? He doesn’t have a secretary? You know, record and transcribe? His phone calls have been leaking since day one…. you would think Trump could figure out not a good plan as it was going,

    When I served on active duty, back in the last century, there were a few things that we were not permitted to do. Yes, we could attend political demonstrations —no, we could not wear our uniform to such an event. Yes, we could write letters to members of congress —no, we could not bash our chain of command in the media. Yes, we could disagree with foreign and domestic policy —no, we could not air our grievances in public statements. Yes, we had the right of redress of grievances (in matters of real or perceived personal injustice) —no, we could not do that outside of the chain of command.

    I do not think these rules are much different for civilian employees of the federal government. Civilian employees of the federal government have these duties: support and defend the Constitution of the United States; obey all federal laws and statues; always act in good faith. A civilian employee who has deeply held principles, and feels that anyone in federal service has broken laws, or acted unwisely, or unethically, is obligated to address those concerns —through the chain of command. A person who breeches the chain of command over matters of political disagreement has not acted in good faith. So the remedy among civilian employees is (1) address fact-based concerns through the chain of command and allow superiors a reasonable time to resolve those concerns. If the employee isn’t satisfied, then (2) continue to pursue the matter through the chain of command. If the employee still isn’t satisfied, then (3) submit a complaint to the OIG. If the employee still isn’t satisfied, then (4) resign.

    Under no set of circumstances is it appropriate to take those concerns outside the chain of command, to the public, to the press, or any other source, while they are still on the federal payroll. I do not know whether a civilian employee can be prosecuted for violating these rules. I do believe that if they cannot in good faith execute their duties, which is to implement the policies and programs of the current president, then someone with integrity will resign and find another source of income.

    Color me a dinosaur.

      Agree totally. This business with Atkinson is beyond the pale…. there is no way in the world he should have ever been made an Inspector General let alone for the Intelligence community.. In truth anyone decent would have been a whistle blower on him. All anyone had to do was check out his CV…. at the least one would want someone far our of connections with these fine people. Who knows, maybe they have… maybe they are dead….. seems how it goes these days. Find out who recommended him and you will find one of the traitors within.

    Boy oh Boy…

    The “old” FBI was run like a brothel

    Who was sleeping around with whom?

    OAN had a news report not too long ago about how it was discovered that Lisa Page had another side piece and was also sleeping around with McCabe

    Then the busy little Page came home to her husband

    I do wonder what Mr Page thought about that

    What a disgrace
