The FBI lawyer who is under criminal investigation for allegedly falsifying a document related to the surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser expressed negative opinions of President Trump in messages to colleagues.
Kevin Clinesmith, who once was part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, has been identified as the attorney who faces a potential criminal charge as part of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s expansive criminal investigation into the origins of the Russia inquiry, according to the New York Times.
The article goes on to state the following:
As part of the Justice Department watchdog’s now-completed investigation into alleged surveillance abuses, Clinesmith was found to have altered an email that was used by officials as they prepared an application renewal to present before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to obtain a warrant to electronically surveil Carter Page, a onetime foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign.
The report states that Clinesmith “resigned two months ago after being interviewed by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s team.”
Clinesmith was booted from Mueller’s Russia investigation team in February 2018, after Horowitz identified him as being biased against President Trump from instant messages he had sent.
“My god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff. So, who knows if that breaks to him what he is going to do,” Clinesmith reportedly wrote on the day after President Trump won the 2016 election.
“Viva la resistance,” he said in another message a few days later.
“My god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff… So, who knows if that breaks to him what he is going to do.”

My write-up of the Kevin Clinesmith development.
When I asked special counsel’s team about after revelation of “Resistance” text, a spokesman downplayed his role as merely administrative.
Not sure if they knew he altered documents at the time.https://t.co/XjepWeuKSu

The NYT article on the DOJ IG report about FBI’s conduct in the Trump/Russia investigation seems to want to downplay the findings of wrongdoing, but a lot of this seems rather serious, like an FBI agent deliberately altering evidence to spy on Carter Page https://t.co/KgnQVFqec6 pic.twitter.com/IaJaGwzzlr
