FBI Lawyer that falsified evidence can only receive 0-6 months in prison?

 via EPOCH Times

A federal judge has postponed the sentencing of Kevin Clinesmith, the former FBI lawyer who pleaded guilty in August to falsifying evidence connected to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg of the D.C. District again rescheduled the sentencing, postponing it to Jan. 29, after Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.

Clinesmith was first scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 10 before it was postponed to Jan. 7.

Kevin Clinesmith admitted on Aug. 19 to altering an email used in a FISA warrant application to spy on Carter Page, an aide in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.


 The sentencing range for Clinesmith is 0–6 months in prison but in their own sentencing memorandum, Durham and his prosecutors requested a sentence between the middle and high end of those guidelines.

The politics are irrelevant in this thing as far as I'm concerned.  It's hard enough for the average citizen to know/trust that govt spying on them isn't happening and isn't being abused.

But when the punishment for abusing it is so small that's a HUGE red flag for me.

Regardless of your politics, if they could do this to a President then YOU KNOW they could roll over an average person like a freight train.
