Banana Republic Update: ObamaGate Operative Clinesmith Given Probation

Honestly, this is exactly the sort of judicial farce I expected would happen once I saw that Obama appointee Judge James Boasberg (pictured above) had been assigned the case. Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, the one and only ObamaGate figure to have been indicted for any crime by hoax-prosecutor John Durham and the entirety of the U.S. Department of [No]Justice, was given the softest tap on the wrist possible Friday by the despicable Judge Boasberg.

The corrupt news media will claim that Boasberg’s absurdly minimalist sentence of 12 months probation, 400 days community service and a $100 fee was due to Clinesmith’s decision to plead guilty in the case. Yeah, tell that to General Mike Flynn.

From the story at Fox News:

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was sentenced to 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service Friday after pleading guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from now-Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

Clinesmith in August pleaded guilty to “one count of making a false statement within both the jurisdiction of the executive branch and judicial branch of the U.S. government, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.”

 U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia James Boasberg on Friday during Clinesmith’s sentencing hearing said Clinesmith had suffered by losing his job and standing in the eye of a media hurricane. [emphasis added]


Oh, golly, poor Kevin “suffered by losing his job and standing.” How awful. Poor baby.

The SOB defrauded the damn FISA court, you despicable asshat.

Boasberg is one of the most repugnant clowns ever appointed to the federal bench, so this sort of poke in the public’s eye was pretty much inevitable.

Thus it will be that the sum total of punishments dealt out to the FBI/DOJ cabal that conspired with British and Russian spies to fix the 2016 election and to then try and fail to execute a coup d’etat of a sitting president on U.S. soil will amount to zero jail time, 400 hours’ community service and a $100 fee.

The end.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever before. is the only real conservative alternative to Drudge. It’s the tool I use to help keep up with all the day’s events, and it should be your tool, too.

Should be in jail for years!


Had one of us made a false statement to a court we’d have had the book thrown at us. Department of No Justice indeed.


Yeah, ask Martha Stewart.
