#3 I recall it was Strzok who altered it? Or was that the notes from Flynn's interview?

My, there's quite a lot of altering goin' on...

#6 it was likely a flunkee working at Peter Strzok's direction formally or informally

it would be a real hoot if it were Lisa Page and if she had flipped and was now working with the investigation

#8 Could well be Lisa Page. It has been speculated she flipped. Would rather it be her boss Jim Baker and Lisa the stoolie.

From CNN: An FBI lawyer since separated from the bureau faces a criminal investigation for altering a document relating to obtaining the Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA) Court warrant to surveil Donald Trump campaign aide Carter Page, CNN reports.

#9 The Conservative Treehouse: The Washington Post Helps Identify FBI Lawyer Who Altered FISA Docs
If you have followed the case closely, the intentional removal of Peter Strzok in combination with the explanation of the lawyer’s FISA responsibilities; and in combination with prior reporting of FBI lawyer 2; it seems pretty obvious the line-level lawyer was Kevin Clinesmith.

Kevin Clinesmith was one of the key FBI small group members on the original Clinton investigation known as the “mid-year exam”, or in text messages the “MYE”. Within the MYE Clinesmith was one of the key legal staff working with Peter Strzok. Clinesmith was lawyer #2 for Strzok who eventually transferred to the subsequent Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

#10 I thought altering documents was standard procedure for the FBI.

#13 We're an eclectic bunch. Between us, we speak Afrikaans, Bureaucratese, C++, English, German, Hebrew, Latin, MilSpec, Russian, Snarkanese, Yiddish, and a touch of Zulu.

Personally, as a man of the world, I feel it is important to both greet and curse the natives in whatever their barbaric tongue.

#14 If true this was an illegal act committed to enable the administration to spy on the opposition's presidential campaign.

Would this be the 21st century equivalent of the Watergate burglary?

Speculation:

The leading Democrats have known about this for some time.

Impeachment is a bargaining chip.

The Democrats want a quid pro quo.

Impeachment will be shelved if this investigation is stopped.

#15 re #13: Abu, use Google translate - copy the text in the post, then paste into Google Translate, using Detect Language.
Not perfect, but you usually get the sense of the post.
