FBI lawyer pleads guilty to false statement felony

So, it seems likely this plea is an indication that Clinesmith is cooperating. He's the obvious lever (given that he modified an email relied upon by the Carter Page FISA, that makes him an easy target) and assuming Barr and Durham are serious about going after higher ups, Clinesmith has probably already spilled everything he knows and will be expected to testify in court.

Clinesmith is what they call the first domino.

On the other hand, it's hard to reconcile that with his lawyer claiming he thought he was altering the email to be accurate. But those statements may just be spin.

In other Page-FISA news, the surveillance on Page included physical break-ins. Yes, just like Watergate.
