Skip to comments.Flynn case bombshell: FBI analysts bought insurance fearing they'd be sued for misconduct
Posted on 09/24/2020 5:47:39 PM PDT by Hojczyk
FBI analysts working on the Michael Flynn Russia investigation originally planned to end the inquiry in fall 2016 and eventually bought liability insurance fearing they could be sued after their bosses continued to keep the investigation open based on "conspiracy theories," explosive new text messages showed Thursday.
"We all went and purchased professional liability insurance," one analyst texted on Jan. 10, 2017, just 10 days before Trump took office.
"Holy crap," a colleague responded. "All the analysts too?"
"Yep," the first analyst said. "All the folks at the Agency as well."
"Can I ask who are the most likely litigators?" a colleague responded. "As far as potentially suing y'all."
"Haha, who knows .I think the concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece," the original analyst texted back.
The explosive messages were attached to a new filing by Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell, who argued to the court that is considering dismissing her client's guilty plea that the emails show "stunning government misconduct" and "wrongful prosecution."
A hearing is scheduled for next Tuesday.
"There was no case against General Flynn," Powell wrote in the new motion. "There was no crime. The FBI and the prosecutors knew that. This American hero and his entire family have suffered for four years from public abuse, slander, libel, and all means of defamation at the hands of the very government he pledged his life to defend."
The new FBI evidence was turned over late Wednesday and included a stunning revelation that FBI agents originally planned to close Flynn's probe, known as Crossfire Razor, on Nov. 8, 2016, nearly a year before he was charged with lying to the FBI.

Can he sue the government?
I believe Flynn can sue the pants off anyone involved in prosecutorial misconduct.
oh no...please...not a bombshell...hannity will collapse on tv shouting bombshell tomorrow
should the insurance corporation agents
and EXECUTIVES HANG with the seditionists,
assuming anyone in the government
cares and wants to protect the Constitution
before 200 million Americans, waiting for
DECADES for accountability,
descend on the corrupt area known as DC?????
“”””There was no case against General Flynn,” Powell wrote in the new motion. “There was no crime. The FBI and the prosecutors knew that.”””””””””
This is why President Trump took my advice and did not pardon Flynn. Let it play out and expose these crooks.
Does insurance work retroactively?
Powell is one heck of a lawyer.
What companies sell such insurance?
Would this not be a big red flag???
Who paid for the premiums? Or did these traitors charge it to the taxpayers.????
Isnt summer over? Or did COVID delay the seasons too???
I would think the insurance companies could refuse to cover because the FBI agents intentionally and knowingly broke the law. The insurance companies could probably sue the FBI agents for fraud.
A government overthrow started 11years ago.
The perpetrators need to be arrested including Obama and Biden.
Hannity just covered this, and Lindsey Graham made it clear that the sub-source for the Steele dossier was a RUSSIAN AGENT!!!
IOW, it was the Obama FBI that was guilty of RUSSIAN COLLUSION!!
I am curious to know just how much coverage they purchased and how much it cost. I find it odd that a public investigators can obtain such insurance without the insurer having an idea of potential risk.
