US Attorney John Durham seeks jail time for disgraced lawyer Kevin Clinesmith

In the wake of the November 3 election, many, including President Donald Trump, have wondered what U.S. Attorney John Durham has been up to with regard to investigating the players who were behind the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation that was launched against the president in 2016 and 2017.

A number of people slammed Durham for not delivering on a highly-anticipated report prior to the 2020 election, but according to the Daily Caller, it appears as if Durham has been rather busy, as it was announced this week that he’s seeking jail time for disgraced former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith.

Clinesmith is a former lawyer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation who pleaded guilty to altering a Central Intelligence Agency email concerning the agency’s relationship with Carter Page, a former campaign aide to the president.

On Thursday, Durham requested that a federal judge hit Clinesmith with a jail sentence “between the middle and upper-end” of what the guidelines allow for his offense of altering the email.

Clinesmith was caught altering the June 2017 email from the CIA by adding “not a ‘source'” with regard to what Page’s official capacity with the agency was. Obviously, that wasn’t accurate, since Page served as an “operational contact” for the CIA for a five-year period. Of course, that minor detail was left out of future Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications against Page.

That altered email would soon land Clinesmith in deep trouble, as his altered version was forwarded on to the FBI, who at the time was working on a new application to file for a FISA warrant that targeted Page.

The sneaky alteration to Clinesmith’s email was eventually discovered by a department in the inspector’s general office that was engaged in investigating those involved with Crossfire Hurricane and the highly-controversial FISA warrants against Page.

Had it been revealed that Page was an “operational contact” for the CIA, it would have greatly altered the outcome of any FISA warrants filed against him, with Durham arguing that that Clinesmith was fully aware of Page’s association with the CIA.

News of Durham’s request for jail time for Clinesmith comes on the heels of Durham being appointed as “special counsel” by U.S. Attorney General William Barr to ensure that investigations against those involved in Crossfire Hurricane will continue, even under a potentially new, incoming presidential administration, according to USA Today.

  1. too late too little
    and obama, clapper, brandom, etc they are not beeing punished will never be
    has been paid to do nothing same as Barr part of the swamp
    delayed in purpose
    no justice in USA any more
    cprrupts traitors prostitutes money weights more than truth and justice Durham and Barr traitorsmi

      1. Biden did cheat plus he committed treason and he needs to be held accountable for everything! Obama also committed treason and he also needs to be held accountable! Plus the Clintons they need to be held accountable for everything as well!

        1. Agreed, president or not sll involved need to be held accountable. Barr excluded Biden and Obama prior to even investing . Barr is a big part of the swamp unfortunately and has played us all for fools

        2. Biden & son, Schiff, Schumer, Obama’s (both), Clinton’s (both and Chelsea), Pelosi & family members, Mueller, Kerry & daughter, Holder, Water & husband
          & daughter & grandson, Loretta Lynch just to name only a few! Put them in prison. Execute many for treason, theft and crimes against humanity. And of course there are many others. We want justice!!!

    1. So is this THE BEGINNING and THE END after another 2 years of INVESTIGATIONS and trips OVERSEAS for DURHAM that was funded ONCE AGAIN BY THE TAXPAYERS? We got screwed with MUELLER and HIS CLOWNS, are we about READY TO BE SCREWED AGAIN with BARR AND DURHAM? I think any CLOWN could come up with something, but these CLOWNS ONLY WANT MILLION DOLLAR salaries for a couple of years of NOTHINGNESS! When will JUSTICE EVER BE SERVED on BRENNON, CLAPPER, COMEY, and the rest of the ECHELON OF THE FBI, and yes that includes WRAY!!!

      1. Another big huge fake out! Justice just does not apply to the “Deep State”. Were you or I to do half of what these criminals get away with, we’d be in the slammer for many years. There’s absolutely no accountability for these criminals, hence they do whatever they want to do with impunity. No consequences. Obama, Biden, Clinton, Comey, Rice, Schiff, Mueller, et al – just go on. They know that they can get away with murder…and do.
        They are heralded by the state run media, and go on to write books, appear on TV, make multi-$’s deal with Netflix, or whoever thinks that 50% of the American Citizens give a rat’s toss about whatever they have to say. They are all hypocrites. Unless we can get term limits, this will just continue – status quo. It makes me sick.

    2. Only Patriots get jail time in the U.S. nowadays while the democrat criminals with their BLM and Antifa thugs run wild in the streets burning down businesses and they all get, get out of jail “free” cards. This is the very reason we have to take back our government and get rid of the swamp in D.C. every other person in D.C. is a swamp monster and has been in the D.C. political circle for years playing musical chairs. They move from one Federal agency to another, always staying on the government payroll. This is how they were able to continually derail everything our President tried to do. Like insiders coming forward telling lies or leaking lies to their friends in the fake news. All these unelected bureaucrats that think they are running our country has to stop! There is not a single person that put them in power to run anything, but they are still pulling the strings from behind the scenes, and they have absolutely no accountability for anything they do or have done. How many of these swamp creatures committed felonies since President Trump was elected to office. Telling lies and leaking sensitive top-secret information. How many just flat out lied trying and get our President impeached.

  2. So, who’s going to prison for the COUP that has been attempted at our ballot boxes and voting machines?

    When will the Dominion Voting Machines be outlawed and destroyed?

  3. Big deal Durham…Should start at his Supervisor and work your way up. What about James Baker??? Are you going to cover up what he knows??? These people are corrupt to the core and you’ve been told to back off… You’re not a Patriot Durham, you’re the Water Boy…

  4. There are several other lawyers and members of Congress that need jail time like Hillary Clinton, AOC, Adam Schiff, Dianne Feinstein, Ilhan Omar, Nancy Pelosi, Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, etc….Get photos of them with a mop and scrub brush cleaning out toilets at Lewisburg, Allenwood, or some other Federal joint….

    1. How about Obama and Holder, Clinton and more of Democratic Party involved. Until we root the swamp out there will be more of this criminality in the Democratic Party. It’s time to destroy the Democratic Party kick them out of our government. We want people who are honest and not crooked working for us. Also, term limits no more of this 30, 40 year crap. Clean up our government and destroy the swamp!!!

    2. I think the bigger players should be jailed first..They go for the little guys first, just to make the people think they are really going to do something big.. It’s like knowing who the big suppliers are but they only go after the small time dealers.. He’s too scared to go after the true traitors.. OR,,,,, Money did all the talking,,,,

  5. He has picked the person that has already pleaded guilty. He should be after the true criminal, like Obama, Hillery, John Brennan, Comey, Fray, Rice, just to name a few, also maybe Hart.

  6. The corruption is deeper than I thought. Why the hell is Barr appointing someone as corrupt as Clinesmith. Makes you wonder for sure.

  7. Wow after all this time that’s all Durham got. What about the main guys in charge. I knew they would all go free. Barr has turned out to be useless after all. Just another traitor in the swamp. Ignores major election fraud. Must be trying to keep his job. Traitor.

  8. MY TAKE ON DURHAM. HE’S A LITTLE BIT TOO LITTLE/TOO LATE! THE DAMAGE HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE. AND HE STILL HASN’T JAILED ONE PERSON. AND WHO IN HELL CARES ABOUT KLINESMITH? I WANT TO SEE THE BIGGEST TRAITORS PUT TO DEATH, AND THEY ARE; OBAMA / HILLARY / PELOSI / HOLDER / LYNCH / BRENNAN, ETC ETC. GIVE US THE BIG ONES, THE SMALL POTATOES CAN BE PUT ON THE BACK BURNER, AS THEY ARE LESS LIKELY TO BE ANY TROUBLE FOR HERE ON IN. BUT THESE OTHERS LIKE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, THEY ARE THE TRAITORUOUS TROUBLE MAKERS, THAT NEED TO BE DONE AWAY WITH, AND ASAP! IF NOT SOONER!

    1. YESSS!! I SO AGREE WITH YOU!! I AM BELIEVING IN DIVINE JUSTICE BUT I AM IMPATIENT TO SEE THESE TRAITORS GO DOWN NOW!!!

  9. I agree with both Mina and Carline,. Durham needs to get to the meat, there are serious crooks involved in this and if he doesn’t do something now they will be running the government under the crooked Joe Biden. He is set to put people like Obama and Clintons in offices where they could do irreparable damage to our country.

  10. Finally! It’s about time these evil, cheating, unworthy, traitor of our United States of America that failed overwhelmingly not only his self respect, his moral values but most importantly his failure of the law that he sworn an oath to protect and serve. Shame on Clinsmith. I only pray he get the full sentence according to the law. It’s about time AG Durham though like a turtle is finally getting these real bad actors, though these are words Durham speaks, let’s see if he succeeds. The Democrats didn’t take this long to send real innocent people to prison such as General Flynn.

  11. It’s about time, next Comey, Bill & Hillary Clinton, All those CEO from Amazon, Facebook, Bill Gates, all Dominion computers programmers (Rig Election), Democrats Sec States that agree with the rigging of this fake election. Also Crooked Biden, Mrs Lamala Harris, and Schumer, Pelosi, Adam S——t. Let’s get a new beginning.

  12. Just because Durham is requesting jail time for Klinesmith, doesn’t mean anything will happen! IMO, That’s just showboating for us peons!

    1. You are so right,,,,,, the show must go on. We need to get rid of William do nothing Bar,,, Put Trey Gowdy in his place and maybe we will see some changes..

  13. Durham is probably feeding this now only because he’s been exposed and he’s trying to pacify with something. Not good enough.

  14. This is a joke right? With all the corruption of a coup in our government, this is all you have to show us for all the millions of taxpayer dollars you have spent? We the people demand our money back for all expenses and payroll for the fraud investigation that Barr and Durham are portraying! The people can see the crimes but the bobbleheads at DOJ & Durham office can’t? Their WILLFUL IGNORANCE IS CRIMINAL TOO! How about they are the legal bag men for the cover up of the crimes within our government. They to should be brought up on charges of covering up the coup and protecting the bad actors. I said Rhino Barr was questionable when he let McCabe walk. Barr, Wray & Durham are protecting their own and letting criminals walk. PROSECUTE BARR,WRAY,DURHAM for that!

  15. This is bigger than most of understand the politician’s have bought William Bar and Durham don’t expect to much they will be like Muller collect lot of fees and gives us nothing. What a joke on us. Let’s keep our President or the nation is doomed before hand.

  16. Busy? His failure to act shows the swamp has moved out of DC and ruining the rest of our once great country. The swamp can’t investigate the swamp.

    1. Instead of draining the swamp,,,all that’s happened,, They’ve stirred up the stench and added more to it..To the people of this country,,,, It’s not enough to be awake.. Time to put our energy together and save what’s left of our country,our constitution…Not much time left people!! Now that you are awake,,,GET OUT IF BED AND DO SOMETHING…

  17. There had better be a giant trove of people who should be jailed!!! The attorney is NOT the only culprit in all of this BS! We want JUSTICE!!!!!!! That had better include Comey, Hillary, Clapper, Brennan, McCabe, Strok, Hunter Biden, “MR. BIG” (JOE BIDEN) and the leader of the pack: OBummer! We will not let up until you people DO YOUR JOBS!!! We the people are FED UP with the lies, corruption, secrecy, the liars & losers that are all in the Democrat party. CIVIL WAR is going to be on the agenda if HONESTY doesn’t prevail! Ever notice how once Obummer was president, this world is a MESS!!!!Biggest divider of ALL! (And of course, his RACIST wife. What pathetic, EVIL people! They will get theirs! The Lord said whoever blesses Isreal, they will be blessed, and who-ever curses Isreal will be cursed! LET OBUMMER have it, LORD!

  18. Yeah, nothing gets done. Hillary is still walking around a free person. Even with all the facts about Benghazi, deleted e-mails, suspicious deaths of surrounding people of the Clintons. Now, there talking about a position in the Supreme Court for her. Same goes for Obama. What a joke. When your that high up in the food chain…nothing can touch you….they always get a lower level fall guy ( paid off of course). Meanwhile both go laughing to the bank. While honest people are left scratching their heads what the %^*#$^ just happened? Just like this election…it was stolen. Democrats had four years putting this plan in place, while keeping President Trump busy defending himself from Russia gate & impeachment. Tell you, if this election isn’t corrected either by the courts, or state Legislature…we live in a banana republic, why the hell vote anymore.

  19. What are people afraid of? Why hasn’t there been any investigations and punishment of those higher ups that are behind all the swamp dishonesty? The American people (not the East Coast Elitist or Left Coast Looneys) are behind you. We are the ones who pay your salarys (of course we can’t bribe you with millions). But we are the majority. Come on, do your jobs.

  20. The problem as I see it… is that the Swamp is cunningly Demonic!! They are a very well connected system of lies and it’s hard to know who can be trusted. The system will not expose the system… Therefore all God fearing people need to pray for his mercy and guidance to expose these Demons!!! Let us all pray

  21. In reading all the comments above it seems you all forgot that one must have proof before the other can be charged. If you paid attention to the absentee president and his chase for rigged election proof he and his lawyers have done nothing but strike out, NO PROOF of rigging. Just because Trump says so does not make so! I know it must be frustrating for you as you are all so use to winning, but it this case it is a loss as is Durham and his wild goose chase.

    1. Good grief! WHERE have you been?? Even 30% of the Democratic voters believe there was fraud. You can’t honestly believe that someone who campaigned from his basement, said ridiculous things, actually WON? People are coming forth every day admitting to vote tampering; people who worked for Dominion. Other people involved in various ways are also coming forth. It’s NOT just because Trump said so! Common sense needs to speak here!

  22. This is hysterical. Durham “goes after” the only person that has plead guilty. Must be extremely difficult to attack the only person with the guts to stand up and accept responsibility for his actions. When does Durham present the report he’s been working on for months? You know, the report that was supposed to be out in Sept or Oct, before the election? You know, the report that was supposed to send the people guilty of treason to jail. Yes, that invisible report that never showed up!!

  23. Is this all the American people are going to get out of this so called investigation? Millions of tax payer dollars wasted and for what—a low level attorney who will probably not even be disbarred. I am so sick of all the cover ups in Washington for no good, dishonest politicians. And the saga continues. The only thing probably is a second Continental Congress that may right some of these abuses. GO for it states. We don’t appear to have much to lose.

  24. EVERYONE MUST BE GOOD or the JUDGE will ACT & PUT YOU AWAY where NO ONE CAN REACH YOU !!! “THUGS” YOU WILL EVENTUELY GET WHAT it IS YOU ARE ASKING for IF YOU TRY to FOOL GOOD OLD UNCLE SAM !!!! ONE NEVER KNOWS WHEN HE WILL REACH OUT GET YOU & HOLD YOU VERY FAR AWAY from ALL OTHERS !!!!

  25. Folks: Step back a second and look at all this theatrical nonsense before you.
    The United States is not,
    the Untited States. If you can not see the difference and comprehend this…then YOU are part of why this is being brought out into the light of day. By the President!

  26. According to two ex generals–the only way to clean-up the current corruptions in the GOV–is for Trump to declare Marshall law. Then he can drain the DC SWAMP & send guilty people–you guys mentioned here –all to JAIL. But I wonder if he has the guts.

  27. Will I really surprise Bill Barr and John Durham if I remind them that in general “a spoon is needed for lunch, but after lunch it is no longer needed”. What is the use of a late investigation and imprisonment if all the media have chosen a criminal president for us?

  28. Sadly, our government is just as we figured out along time ago. CORRUPT and it’s about time we realize this and prepare to mobilize.

  29. Phil Waldron has the server in germany he is the navy hacker with Rudy we won’t hear much about it because it’s the ACE IN THE HOLE FOR TRUMP AND RUDY PHIL WILL RIP INTO THAT AND GET LOTS OF INFORMATION THATS A GIMMIE

  30. Unfortunately there will be no longer any true justice in our country under Biden/Harris. Obama and Clinton may be appointed to the Supreme Court with the court packing scheme. I am afraid anyone who served in the Trump administration may be heading for jail/ prison. I suspect Trump most likely will go to jail for how he has handle his taxes. Anyone who refused to take the so called COVIC vaccination will be put in lockdown in their homes or a concentration camp.
