Washington Post Stealth-Censors a Report on the FBI Lawyer Probed for Altering and Official Document, Removing Report That She Worked "Beneath Peter Strzok" Without Noting the Deletion or Explaining the Reason for It

I have my own correction to make -- I reported an FBI agent was accused of altering a document, when it was actually an FBI lawyer. I don't know if this was my mistake or if that mistake was in the CNN original story.

Update: Apparently the error started with CNN and the leftwing propaganda houses -- Katie Pavlich noted that the Washington Post also reported it was an "FBI agent" who made the alteration, and in fact reported it was Peter Strzok.

However, I did make a mistake in assuming this must be about the altered 302 interview records; Horowitz is investigating FISA abuses, not the Flynn matter, so this alteration would seem likely to be of some document used to procure -- illicitly -- a FISA warrant.

Now the Conservative Tree House seems to catch the Washington Post cleaning up for a key ally.

The original WaPo article by Devlin Barrett noted the FBI official was actually a "line-level" lawyer who worked "under FBI Agent Peter Strzok."

At 12:15am, the WaPo article was significantly edited, two more journalists (Ellen Nakashima and Matt Zapotosky) were added to the byline. Unfortunately, no explanation or notation of the changes were given.

They deleted the connection to Strzok -- I'm sure Strzok is grateful to them -- and then also added that this lawyer is just a "low-level" lawyer.

Kind of like those low-level IRS operatives in the Cincinnati office, right?

Conservative Treehouse then deduces who this "low-level" lawyer is. And it's someone who of course worked on the "MYE" -- Mid-Year Review, the euphemistic code-name for the fake investigation into Hillary Clinton's genuine withholding-documents conspiracy.

Paul Sperry seems to have concluded the same thing, that the "low-level" line lawyer being investigated is Kevin Clinesmith, who was previously called "Lawyer #2" in Horowitz's previous report.

REWIND: "FBI Attorney 2" Kevin Clinesmith was among 5 FBI agents DOJ IG Horowitz referred for investigation for sending pro-Clinton, anti-Trump political messages over FBI phones and computers. Clinesmith worked C.I. cases under Strzok, including Crossfire Hurricane/Carter Page
