The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) order today refers to an FBI attorney in the Office of General Counsel, widely supposed to be Kevin Clinesmith, in a very bad way:
“Because the conduct of the OGC attorney gave rise to serious concerns about the accuracy and completeness of the information provided to the FISC in any matter in which the OGC attorney was involved, the Court ordered the government on December 5, 2019, to, among other things, provide certain information addressing those concerns.” [emphasis added]
So he has now dragged every other case he ever worked on back into scrutiny. A cascade. You hear about stuff like this with corrupted lab technicians, like Kamalkant Shah in New Jersey. He shoved 7827 cases in NJ back into scrutiny. The court order does not specify the number of Clinesmith tainted cases.
Clinesmith really laid an egg, and there is going to be some jail time for him. A good start.
