Mueller Probe, Political Bias, And Deep State Sabotage
by Kelleigh Nelson
The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything. —Albert Einstein
Only in the Deep State swamp world would you try to put war hero General Michael Flynn in jail, but let Bowe Bergdahl off completely. —Amil Imani, author, Persian born American citizen who loves the USA
Our President is right, the FBI is in tatters. He tweeted, “ So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday ‘interrogation’ with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times … and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double standard?”
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The Deep State sabotage of our President, his administration, and supporters is far worse.
Mueller is charging Manafort with something that happened years ago and which has absolutely nothing to do with this fake news Russian investigation. No one in the DOJ is doing anything to stop this perversion of justice.
Political Bias in the Mueller Probe
Andrew Weissmann, a veteran Justice Department prosecutor who is one of Mueller’s top lieutenants in the fake Russian investigation, sent a Jan. 30th email to Obama administration holdover Acting AG Sally Yates that lauded her for standing up to Trump. She had refused to implement Trump’s travel restrictions on seven Muslim majority countries linked to terrorism, and Weissman emailed Yates to declare he was in awe. He said, “I am so proud, and in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects, Andrew Weissman.” Trump fired Yates the next day.
Of the 15 attorneys currently on staff for Mueller, at least seven have donated to Democratic candidates and campaigns, including Hillary Clinton. The rest have not made political donations, according to federal records; and none of the attorneys on Mueller’s roster donated money to Trump. The entire Mueller team is a Who’s Who of liberal activism; they are the Deep State.
Peter Strzok is the Lois Lerner of the FBI, and he is the one who signed off on the fake Russian investigation. Strzok (pronounced Struck) is the former top FBI counter intelligence official who was removed last August from the Russia investigation, but we are just now finding out he was sending anti-Trump, pro-Hillary text messages to his girlfriend, Lisa Page, with whom he was having an adulterous affair. She worked as a top FBI lawyer under Deputy FBI Director, Andrew McCabe.
Strzok’s wife, Melissa Hman, is also a devout Hillary and Obama supporter. Her Facebook page, which has been wiped, was filled with adoring comments on both Clinton and Obama.
The agent’s role in the Clinton email investigation is now under review by the Office of Inspector General. Strzok is directly tied not only to the Clinton email server probe, but to the Trump Russia investigation, and he oversaw the bureau’s interviews of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Hillary Clinton in both cases. He also led the probe into classified Huma Abedin emails.
Strzok is also the one who changed the language in James Comey’s draft letter about Hillary Clinton from grossly negligent, to extreme carelessness. The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” was key because the federal law that covers how classified material should be handled calls for criminal penalties for “gross negligence.” Judge Napolitano says there is little difference in either term, but I would have to disagree.
He even helped former FBI Director Comey draft Hillary’s exoneration statement that freed her from any investigation. Sean Hannity has stated the obvious, “The fix was in on the Hillary Clinton investigation.” Strzok is also the guy who was okay with the FBI not investigating the DNC’s hacked server. He was fine with that.
In his FBI position, Strzok also enjoyed liaison with various agencies in the intelligence community, including the CIA, then led by Director John Brennan.
The guy’s a total full-fledged partisan, and Mueller had to let him go because it was discovered how partisan he was operating. Yet, every one of Mueller’s investigators is partisan, and they’ve spent $7 million taxpayer dollars on this bogus investigation so far.
Strzok and The Clinton Created Dossier
House investigators have regarded Strzok as a key figure in the chain of events when the bureau, in 2016, received the infamous anti-Trump “dossier” and launched a counterintelligence investigation into Russian meddling in the election that ultimately came to encompass Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) surveillance of a Trump campaign associate. The fake dossier was compiled by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, and the firm’s bank records, obtained by House investigators, revealed that the project was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Why no investigation?
In early October, House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Devin Nunes personally asked Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and who has overseen the Trump-Russia probe since the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to make Strzok available to the committee for questioning. Three subpoenas were issued for various witnesses and documents, and nothing happened. After a month went by, they formally recommended to Nunes that the DOJ and FBI be held in contempt of Congress. Nunes continued pressing the DOJ, including a conversation with Rosenstein as recently as 29 November 17.
After the latest revelations on Strzok, Nunes directed his staff to draft contempt-of-Congress citations against Rosenstein and the new FBI director, Christopher Wray.
Unless the DOJ and FBI comply with all of his outstanding requests for documents and witnesses by the close of business on Monday, Nunes said, he would seek a resolution on the contempt citations before year’s end. Rosenstein agreed to permit House investigators to interview FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as long as he’s not questioned about special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia investigation. Oh really? We can’t ask him questions about Mueller’s investigation???
The discovery of Strzok’s texts raises important questions about his work on the Clinton email case, the Trump-Russia probe, and the infamous dossier matter. There are two extremely compromised Clinton partisans, Peter Strzok and Deputy FBI Director, Andrew McCabe. Mueller’s withholding Strzok’s anti-Trump texting from House Intel committee undermines the credibility of both the Trump and Clinton probes.
The DOJ contacted Paul Ryan’s office to establish a date for Strzok’s appearance before House Intelligence Committee staff, along with two other witnesses long sought by the Nunes team.
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe
Fox News’ Catherine Herridge says FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is the key witness, who was said to have handled Christopher Steele, the British spy who used Russian sources to compile the fake dossier for Fusion GPS.
Democrat Andrew McCabe is also facing three federal inquiries for (1) sexual discrimination by Robyn Gritz as mentioned in my last article, and subsequent retaliation against the complainant, (General Michael T. Flynn) (2) campaigning as an FBI official for his wife, which is a violation of the Hatch Act, and (3) ethics violations relating to campaign payments to his wife.
General Flynn, who led the Defense Intelligence Agency, worked closely with Gritz to find terrorists overseas. He said it’s a shame the FBI let go of someone with years of national security experience. “She was one of the really bright lights and shining stars early on who got it when it came to the kind of enemy that we’re facing, and I just thought she was a real pro.”
The WSJ reported that the political organization of Democrat Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign for state senator of the wife of an official at the FBI who later helped oversee the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use. Jill McCabe ran for a Virginia State Senate seat as a Democrat in 2015, and she is the wife of Deputy FBI Director McCabe. Virginia’s Democratic party also gave over $200K to her campaign.
The Journal also stated that it was McCabe who told lower-level FBI investigators to “stand down” in their inquiry into whether illegal influence-peddling or financial crimes were being committed at the Clinton Foundation. Meanwhile, McCabe did not recuse himself from the investigation into presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails, despite an apparent conflict of interest involving his wife.
McCabe and Strzok Set up Flynn Interview
Strzok’s allegiance to Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was unwavering and very well known, and we know that McCabe had a personal vendetta against Flynn because he supported Robyn Gritz’ accusation of sexual discrimination against McCabe.
Sean Hannity reported that a former U.S. intelligence official, with direct knowledge of General Flynn’s 24 January 17 interview, said McCabe had contacted Flynn by phone directly at the White House. White House officials had spent the “earlier part of the week with the FBI overseeing training and security measures associated with their new roles so it was no surprise to Flynn that McCabe had called,” the source said.
McCabe told Flynn “some agents were heading over (to the White House) but Flynn thought it was part of the routine work the FBI had been doing and said they would be cleared at the gate,” the source said.
“It wasn’t until after they were already in Flynn’s office that he realized he was being formerly interviewed. He didn’t have an attorney with him,” they added.
The source also told Hannity, “With the recent revelation that Strzok was removed from the Special Counsel investigation for making anti-Trump text messages it seems likely that the accuracy and veracity of the 302 of Flynn’s interview as a whole should be reviewed and called into question.”
What is the FD-302?
The FD-302 form is used by FBI agents to “report or summarize the interviews that they conduct” and contains information from the notes taken during the interview. How credible are the reports of interviews filed by FBI agents working a case? In fact, such reports are known to be so unreliable that in one case, a federal judge refused to be interviewed by agents unless he was allowed to review their report and make corrections.
The process is thus: two FBI agents ask questions and listen to the answers—without tape recording or obtaining a certified transcript. Instead, they return to their office and, based on their recollection and any notes they may have taken during the interview, write up a summary of what transpired. Summaries are, in most cases, written hours later, sometimes even the following day.
Knowing the FBI agents in this interview of General Flynn, I would question their notes.“The most logical thing to happen would be to call the other FBI Special Agent present during Flynn’s interview before the Grand Jury to recount his version,” the former intelligence official added.
Professor Glenn Reynolds and the Giglio Violation
Glenn Reynolds is a law professor at the University of Tennessee. I have spoken to him in the past. Glenn runs the wildly popular Instapundit website at PJ Media and has a huge following.
On 5 December 17, Glenn posted a comment from a former judge and Instapundit reader on the General Michael Flynn arrest and plea deal.
Glenn believes the General Flynn investigation was flawed because Flynn was not notified that the main witness against him was removed from the investigation for bias.
If General Flynn was not aware of this it is Giglio violation.
Via Instapundit: A reader who is a former prosecutor and judge sent in this: Did the prosecution tell Flynn’s lawyer that their main witness against him was removed for bias? Since Strzok led the interview and his testimony would be needed to establish untruthfulness, he is a critical witness not just a prosecutor. If not disclosed, would this not be a Giglio violation? This is the kind of misconduct that can get a case dismissed and a lawyer disbarred. It is a Constitutional violation. This has bothered me since I heard about it.
The Giglio v United States case: is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the prosecution’s failure to inform the jury that a witness had been promised not to be prosecuted in exchange for his testimony was a failure to fulfill the duty to present all material evidence to the jury, and constituted a violation of due process, requiring a new trial.
Former CIA analyst, Frederick Fleitz says, “the Russia probe is an intentional Democratic trap, and President Trump should pardon everyone, and that’s what Republicans on the Hill should be calling for.” Fleitz also stated that he believes there is a good possibility that General Flynn did not lie to the FBI, even though he admitted as much. He says his friend Michael Ledeen posted an article on Pajama Media. Ledeen says the guilty plea is about the politicization of “justice,” and General Flynn admitted guilt in order to stop the pain for himself and his family. He even said, “I doubt Flynn — or Mueller, for that matter — believes he misled government officials.”
Ledeen also believes that because Flynn’s conversation with Pence took place in the middle of the night, that there were bad communications, because he had no need to lie about the Kislyak conversations. “I think Flynn copped a plea to end the torture, and to save his family from prosecution.”
The General’s plea stops years of investigations into Flynn’s business dealings, and the financial bleed of legal fees that have destroyed this family. Please donate to his legal defense fund.
Where is equal justice? Where is the Rule of Law? If we hear nothing from our AG after the passage of the tax relief bill, then we have to ask, “Where the hell are you, AG Sessions?
President Trump, pardon them all, number one on the list…General Michael T. Flynn.
