Christmas comes early. Again. This time another Obama-era DOJ scumbag is revealed.
Meet Michael Atkinson. He’s the latest in what will be a long line of Leftist criminals who worked with Obama. Their aim was to keep Donald Trump from ever being president.

If you have followed the case closely, the intentional removal of Peter Strzok in combination with the explanation of the lawyer’s FISA responsibilities; and in combination with prior reporting of FBI lawyer 2; it seems pretty obvious the line-level lawyer was Kevin Clinesmith.
We now know that Clinesmith altered documents that set the investigation of Carter Page in motion. These modifications helped “sell” the documents to the FISA courts. Also, clearly the Left now sees Clinesmith as the scapegoat. Thus, he 1414can and will take the fall for many who lied up the food chain. Sadly for the Left, the buck won’t stop with Clinesmith.
The Conservative Treehouse continues,
Kevin Clinesmith was one of the key FBI small group members on the original Clinton investigation known as the “mid-year exam”, or in text messages the “MYE”.
Within the MYE Clinesmith was one of the key legal staff working with Peter Strzok. Clinesmith was lawyer #2 for Strzok who eventually transferred to the subsequent Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
Clinesmith was also previously reported to be having an intimate relationship with another member of the FBI team, Sally Moyer, though that is uncertain.
Sally Moyer was FBI unit chief in the Office of General Counsel (counterintelligence legal unit within the FBI Office of General Counsel).
Ms. Moyer was responsible for the legal compliance within the FBI counterintelligence operations that generated FISA applications.
When the MYE investigation finished, the Carter Page FISA construction is where Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer come together in their next assignment, the FBI investigation of Trump.
Good information, but here are a few more dots to connect.
According to The Gateway Pundit, another form was doctored:
Clinesmith and Moyer both also reportedly worked for Michael Atkinson while he was an attorney with the Department of Justice (DOJ).
As we reported a few days ago, Atkinson next took a position as the ICIG. Recently, it was reported that Atkinson changed the IC whistleblower form sometime before September shortly after a CIA Agent, who was spying in the Trump White House, drafted a complaint on President Trump.
Atkinson saw to it that the whistleblower form was updated to allow for second hand information, which the ‘whistleblower’ (believed to be Eric Ciaramella) provided in his complaint. Although, the form should not have been accepted based on second-hand information and because it was about the President of the United States (who is not in the IC), Atkinson accepted the complaint.
The whistleblower later attempted to edit the form he originally provided. The original form stated that the whistleblower did not talk to Congress before filing the form. But after it was discovered that he had met with Adam Schiff’s team in Congress, the whistleblower attempted to edit his form.
But it doesn’t stop there. Now one more key piece of information has come to light.
Now we know ICIG about the connection between Atkinson’s wife and Fusion GPS.
Yes, the same fusion GPS linked to the infamous Steele dossier.

I guess it’s true. Birds of a feather do flock together. And these birds are a bunch of turkeys. The question is: who’s next on the exposé list?
