Ex-FBI Lawyer Plans to Plead Guilty to Falsifying Doc in Russia Probe
Chip SomodevillaA former FBI lawyer plans to plead guilty to falsifying a key document that was part of the initial investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election, several news outlets reported on Friday.

Kevin Clinesmith, a 38-year-old lawyer assigned to the FBI probe into foreign election interference, is expected to plead guilty to altering an email from the CIA that investigators used to seek a wiretap on former Donald Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in 2017.

WASHINGTON— Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf recently hosted the inaugural meeting of the Department's China Working Group. The Group's purpose is to holistically articulate, prioritize, and coordinate the Department's response to evolving threats to the Homeland posed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
