I'm on the Kevin Clinesmith hearing conference call. Sentencing for falsely editing a CIA email that confirmed Page was a CIA source in order to get a FISA renewal.

#Clinesmith I'm hoping @carterwpage gets to reveal a few things in his statement!

Judge Boasberg is hearing this case. I think Boasberg should be recused from the case is also the President Judge of the FISA Court who is forcing FBI to conduct reforms of their FISA Application process to prevent such false information being given to the FISA court.
Why would Carter Page pick McAdoo-Gordon to represent him?

She's a clown...

Not that type of clown, but one that isn't taken seriously.

Significant moment in #Clinesmith hearing.

Judge: Do you agree when you added Carter was "not a source" "you knew such a statement was not in fact true"?

2. Clinesmith in full:

"At the time I BELIEVED THAT THE INFORMATION I WAS PROVIDING IN THE EMAIL WAS ACCURATE but I am agreeing that the information I inserted into the email was not originally there and that I inserted that information."
3. Upshot: It furthers the point that the the offense, and facts to which just Clinesmith agreed, are NOT about his knowingly and falsely saying Page was not a CIA source, and that Page was one.

Durham's case is oddly reduced down to Clinesmith altering the email document.

“There is such a range of conduct here that is inexplicable… Our final recommendation was to refer the entire chain of command,” #IGHorowitz said. (Thread👇)

News Analysis🔎by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…
