[Ed. – Clinesmith was convicted of lying about altering an email regarding the evidentiary basis for the Carter Page FISA application – a felony.  His attorneys have negotiated a proposal for a one-year suspension by the D.C. Bar.  Contrast this with the NY Bar decision, without even a hearing, to suspend Rudy Giuliani – who’s been convicted of and charged with nothing.]

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith has agreed to a one-year suspension of his attorney license in Washington, D.C., following his conviction in August 2020 on a felony false-statement charge arising from the internal review of the special counsel’s Russia investigation, new bar records show.

Clinesmith and his lawyers at Lathrop GPM signed a negotiated discipline with the District of Columbia office of disciplinary counsel on June 11 that set out the proposed suspension.

A hearing committee of the District of Columbia Board on Professional Responsibility is expected to take up the proposal at a public hearing on July 19.
