Ex-FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith To Plead Guilty In Durham Probe, Trump Says It’s ‘Just The Beginning’
Developing and Breaking
FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who falsified the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against Carter Page, is expected to plead guilty Friday in the Department of Justice Prosecutor John Durham’s probe into the FBI’s now-debunked probe into President Donald Trump and Russia, The New York Times is reporting Friday.
During a news conference Friday, President Donald Trump called both Clinesmith and the FBI run by James Comey “corrupt,” adding that Friday’s news is “just the beginning, I would imagine. What happened should never happen again.”
“So, he is pleading guilty,” Trump said. “Terrible thing, terrible thing. The fact is they spied on my campaign and they got caught and you’ll be hearing more.”
Clinesmith “plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency. Mr. Clinesmith’s lawyers said he made a mistake while trying to clarify facts for a colleague, the people said,” according to the paper.
On Thursday night, Attorney General William Barr told Sean Hannity that there would be “significant developments” Friday, but noted they wouldn’t be “earth shattering.” It was something the American people have been waiting for for nearly four years.
“The simplest indictment would be against FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who falsified the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against Carter Page. Page, who was a volunteer for the 2016 Trump campaign, is now suing multiple media outlets for falsifying information against him,” Sara A. Carter wrote in a column Friday before any announcements were made.
She added, “The warrant allowed the FBI to spy on Page’s communications and allowed them access into the Trump campaign. But Clinesmith was not alone in his actions. Neither were any of the other FBI agents that spied on Trump’s campaign.”

REPORT: The Biden family received over $1 million from Chinese Companies
The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed financial records that reveal the Biden family received payments that totaled more than 1 million dollars from accounts connected to Rob Walker, a business associate of Hunter Biden, who received numerous lucrative donations from Chinese firms – inherently connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
The financial records revealed that Hunter Biden and Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, had worked with Walker. Why is this important? It is important because the investigation also revealed that Walker, Hunter and business associates James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinksi had a a joint-venture called Sinohawk Holdings, which was planning to partner with Chinese energy firm CEFC, according to reports.
Moreover, Bobulinski spoke out about the Biden families dealings with China. In an exclusive with Fox New’s Tucker Carlson last November, he accused President Biden of being directly entangled “in a plot to make millions of dollars as part of Bobulinski and the first son’s 2017 SinoHawk Holdings venture with the Chinese state-owned energy company CEFC,” as reported.
“Hunter Biden, in his own words, [has said] he is putting his entire family’s family legacy on the line to do business with the Chinese Communist Party [via] CEFC,” Bobulinski told Fox News. “(Hunter) says that in his own words, in numerous text messages and other things I’ve provided both to the FBI and other whistleblowers.”
The committee records were obtained by Republican Congressman and Committee Chairman, James Comer, after subpoenaing Bank of America. The articles revealed that “at least three family members” received large payments from a one of Walker’s bank accounts. That account is labeled as “Robinson Walker, LLC,” and one of the family members is Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s son Beau, according to Fox News.
Moreover, a spokesperson for the Biden legal team firmly stated that the payments did occur but it was only Hunter, Jim and Hallie who had received the payments from the Chinese firm. They said that the accounts “belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie – nobody else.”
Furthermore, the records revealed that the Chinese firm State Energy HK Limited had wired 3 million dollars to Walkers account. This took place on the 1st of March, 2017, only a few months after Joe Biden had left the White House.
The committee noted that, “After the Robinson Walker, LLC account received $3 million from State Energy HK Limited, Biden family members and their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months,” continuing to state that, “The recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account identified as ‘Biden.’”
With the current tensions between the U.S., Russia, and China this should be a concern to all people residing in the United States. If the Biden family has been receiving payments from Chinese owned companies we should all be worried about the integrity of the family and the leverage China has over our current President. The real question is how exposed is the Biden family to Chinese influence?
What information could’ve been captured by Chinese intelligence and if so, how far did Chinese intelligence penetrate our government. It isn’t far fetched. Why, because President Biden was negligent with classified information, even as far back as his time in the Senate. The recent FBI raids revealed that top secret documents found in Biden’s office also were obtained during his time as Vice President.
More importantly, the Biden family finances expose a very real threat to our republic, when our leadership is on the payroll of our adversaries. And even if Biden didn’t directly receive payments from China, his family did and that in and of itself, doesn’t mean he didn’t profit from it.
