from The Wall Street Journal,

A former FBI lawyer is charged with doctoring evidence for a warrant.

At last, some accountability for the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s outrageous intervention in the 2016 presidential campaign. On Friday U.S. Attorney John Durham charged former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith with doctoring an email to justify a surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Mr. Durham is digging into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Crossfire Hurricane investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Mr. Page was a minor Trump adviser. But four times in eight months the FBI told the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that there was probable cause that Mr. Page was a foreign agent.
