Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is accused of sitting at the heart of the Deep State conspiracy against Donald Trump.
But there is a secret from his past.
And it just exploded the entire Russia investigation.
Many observers have been puzzled by the FBI investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
He isn’t accused of colluding with the Russians during the 2016 election.
And he broke no laws with his phone calls to the Russian Ambassador.
But the FBI has him squarely in their sights.
Why are they going so hard after a decorated General and American hero?
The answer could be good old fashioned revenge.
In 2015, Flynn offered to testify on behalf of a female FBI agent who accused McCabe and other FBI officials of sexual discrimination.
“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 filings in this case indicate McCabe is not above using his position to exact revenge.
Circa also reports:
“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.
The EEOC case, which is still pending, was serious enough to require McCabe to submit to a sworn statement to investigators, the documents show.
The deputy director’s testimony provided some of the strongest evidence in the case of possible retaliation, because he admitted the FBI opened an internal investigation into Gritz’s personal conduct after learning the agent “had filed or intended to file” a sex discrimination complaint against her supervisors.”
In addition, FBI sources told Circa the leaks of classified information that eventually forced Trump to fire Flynn were political:
“FBI agents’ concerns became more pronounced when a highly-classified piece of evidence — an intercepted conversation between Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak — suddenly leaked to the news media and prompted Flynn’s resignation as Trump’s top security adviser.
“The Flynn leaks were nothing short of political,” one FBI employee said, noting the specific contents of the conversation were known by only a handful of government officials when they leaked. “The leaks appeared to be targeted to take Flynn out.”
Eventually the probe on Flynn moved beyond Russia to questions about whether he properly disclosed foreign payments affecting his security clearance.”
Is the investigation into Flynn a serious inquiry?
Or is it Deep State payback?
