Kevin Clinesmith, the Corrupt FBI Lawyer Who Forged Documents to Frame an Innocent Man, May Get His Law License Back on July 19

A Ruling Class judge first gave this corrupt government official, who forged a document in order to frame a man, then entered that forgery into evidence in a FISA hearing, no jail time at all.

The judge's excuse? Well, this criminal lost his job. And might lose his law license. Isn't that punishment enough?

"[He] lost his job, and his government service is what has given his life much of its meaning," Boasberg said Friday. "He was also earning $150,000 a year and who knows where the earnings go now. He may be disbarred or suspended from the practice of law, you may never be able to work in the national security field again. These are substantial penalties."

I think the average street criminal would be surprised to learn that losing your job due to a crime, and maybe losing your Ruling Class Credential of a law license, is punishment enough.

And now -- about that losing his law license part.

He lost it for just one year. The suspension is dated retroactively to August 2020.

And now he'll petition to have it reinstated.

The Government Clique really looks out for its own, doesn't it?

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith has agreed to a one-year suspension of his attorney license in Washington, D.C., following his conviction in August 2020 on a felony false-statement charge arising from the internal review of the special counsel's Russia investigation, new bar records show.

Clinesmith and his lawyers at Lathrop GPM signed a negotiated discipline with the District of Columbia office of disciplinary counsel on June 11 that set out the proposed suspension.

A hearing committee of the District of Columbia Board on Professional Responsibility is expected to take up the proposal at a public hearing on July 19.

Why should anyone feel any moral obligation to obey the "laws" of the United States?

The Ruling Class obviously doesn't. Aren't they always demanding that we aspire to be like them?

Those who presume to enforce the laws must first follow them themselves.

And they don't. They don't.

And what won't be reformed must be destroyed.

More: Viva Frei discusses this outrage. He compares this leniency for perpetrating an actual legal fraud on the court to the We Must Be Relentless In Our Justice stance the courts take with Rudy Giuliani making political claims outside of a courtroom.

As several commenters pointed out.

Correction: I thought that that this decision was just revealed, having been made in the past.

That's not true. The decision was just reached. They've decided to date the suspension back to August 2020, meaning that Clinesmith's suspension will be... for about a month.

No jailtime. License suspended for a month.

Is everyone feeling patriotic about (this obscene joke they call) America?
