Did the FBI Go Against Michael Flynn?


For John, BLUFMaybe "This City" is more of a swamp than we thought.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




From Circa, by Reporters John Solomon and Sara Carter, 26 June 2017.

Here are the first three paragraphs:

The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf.  His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.

The FBI sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case, memos obtained by Circa show.  Two years later, the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn.

I guess I am now a member of the conspiracy crowd.

Heck, even CNN is accepting the view that some of this stuff is rubbish, and here also.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
