Newly released emails show that the FBI lawyer who doctored Trump-Russia related documents bragged to his colleagues that he had just “destroyed the Republic.”
Kevin Clinesmith, who has been referred to the DOJ for prosecution over FISA application documents that he altered, wrote to another FBI employee: “As I have initiated the destruction of the republic…. Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon?”
This was seven days after the initial FISA application was sent to the FISA court.
The FISA application gave Obama’s FBI the authority to spy on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Other emails sent on the FBI network from Clinesmith show that he praised Hillary Clinton and bashed Trump.
But wait, it gets better.
Clinesmith was also having an affair with Sally Moyer, another anti-Trump lawyer at the FBI who sent out a tweet in 2017 that said, “Viva le resistance.”
So here’s the question: Did he alter the documents as a way of getting a questionable application approved?
On page 445 of the DOJ’s IG report on Clinton’s emails, there is a discussion of what Attorney 2 (Clinesmith) from the FBI texted on October 28, 2016:
Among the general discussion of political issues by FBI Attorney 2, we identified three instant message exchanges that raised concerns of potential bias.
The first of these exchanges was on October 28, 2016, shortly after Comey’s October 28 letter to Congress that effectively announced the reopening of the Midyear investigation.
FBI Attorney 2 sent similar messages to four different FBI employees. The timestamps of these messages are included below.
The messages stated:
13:44:42, to FBI Employee 1: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”
13:44:52, to FBI Employee 2: “I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.”
14:01:52, to FBI Employee 3: “As I have initiated the destruction of the republic…. Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon?”
15:28:50, to FBI Employee 4: “I’m clinging to small pockets of happiness in the dark time of the Republic’s destruction”
Keep in mind that Clinesmith was one of many anti-Trump FBI officials who had a senior role in the Russia investigation.
Seems like almost everyone who was leading the phony Russia investigation hated Trump and loved Clinton.
And Democrats still want us to believe it was a “fair” investigation.
