Former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith's expected guilty plea in Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham's investigation into the origins of the Russia probe should concern any other potential suspect or person of interest, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told "Hannity" Friday.
Clinesmith will plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from Durham's review of the FBI investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign, two sources close to the matter told Fox News earlier Friday.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz previously accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that Page was "not a source" for another government agency.
"An FBI lawyer in charge of reviewing warrants is going to plead guilty to falsifying documents to the FISA court against a Trump advisor, and if you are lucky, you'll find this in the mainstream media for 30 seconds."
If an FBI lawyer had pleaded guilty to falsifying documents to target Hillary Clinton's advisers, Graham claimed, it would be a different story in the press.
