The Russiagate cover-up rolls merrily along, with the agitprop media almost completely ignoring a startling instance of the Deep State taking care of its own, even when they are caught red-handed committing grave felonies. Does the name Kevin Clinesmith ring a bell? He’s the FBI lawyer who lied on a FISA warrant in order to be able to spy on the Trump campaign by falsely implicating Carter Page. Lying to a judge is a serious offense for anyone. But for an officer of the court, one who works for the government and has a heightened obligation to serve justice, to lie to a court is a very serious breach. Failure to punish government officials who perjure themselves in order to spy on innocent citizens and a presidential campaign invites the worst kind of abuse. It plants the seeds of tyranny. Special Counsel John Durham was not interested in punishing Clinesmith severely, but at least he did ask for prison time last December, albeit under six months’ worth. But federal judge James Boasberg, the very judge lied to, was sympathetic to Clinesmith and sentenced him to 12 months of probation and 400 hours of community service in January.
