    Former national security adviser Michael Flynn faced some protestors Tuesday as he made his first appearance at a federal courthouse in D.C. since pleading guilty last year to lying to FBI agents. Some protestors chanted “lock him up” as Flynn left the courthouse, where he attended a status hearing on his case in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Flynn led a chant of “lock her up” in reference to Hillary Clinton at the Republican National Convention in 2016. The former Trump administration official agreed to cooperate with Mueller’s probe as part of his plea deal, and his sentencing in the...
  • Flynn Judge Fumes at Mueller, Demands Flynn be in Court Could Flynn Walk? (tr)

    Flynn Judge Fumes at Mueller, Demands Flynn be in Court Within Days for Likely Showdown; Could Flynn Walk? The federal judge in the Gen. Michael Flynn case is fuming at U.S. Special Robert Mueller. Judge Emmet Sullivan has scheduled a hearing for next week and directed Flynn to attend. The judge could be perturbed because Mueller has failed to initiate a pre-sentencing report from federal probation. Such a report is the backbone of all federal sentencings and according to the court docket, should have been completed months ago. Flynn cannot be sentenced without a pre-sentencing report where he is allowed...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has cooled his friendship with Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson now that the liberal Democrat has called for President Bush?s impeachment. In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, Romney sought to minimize his relationship with Anderson, once a prominent example of bipartisan camaraderie. The two worked closely together when Romney ran the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. ?He was a mayor that worked well with me during the Olympics, and I supported his work as a mayor,? said Romney, who spoke before an event in heavily Republican western Iowa, where he...

    <p>ABC News’ Brian Ross — who was suspended last year as chief investigative correspondent for a faulty report on Michael Flynn — is leaving the network, Page Six has exclusively learned.</p> <p>ABC suspended Ross last December for a month without pay for a botched report on ousted White House national security adviser Flynn that reported President Trump directed Flynn to make contact with Russian officials. The mistake even sent stocks tumbling, and ABC issued an apology saying: “We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error.”</p>

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley isn't backing down as the Justice Department rebuffs his repeated attempts to speak with the FBI agent whose interview with Michael Flynn was used to indict the ex-national security adviser in the Russia probe. “This is no ordinary criminal case,” Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote in a June 6 letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. “Congress has a right to know the full story and to know it now.” Grassley is pressing his request anew after the DOJ once again rejected his bid to speak with FBI Agent Joe Pientka and to obtain the FBI’s...

    As Cristina Laila noted yesterday, TGP previously reported in February, that fired FBI Director McCabe altered far left FBI investigator Peter Strzok’s 302 notes on his interview with General Michael Flynn. Reports are now circling that not only did corrupt former FBI Head McCabe alter the 302 regarding the interview with General Flynn that later was used to get Flynn fired and indicted by the corrupt Mueller team, McCabe and his corrupt gang also destroyed the supporting documentation for the 302. Internet sleuths are again at it. New reports are out suspecting that corrupt and fired former FBI Head McCabe...

    Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter this week to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstien who is currently leading the Department of Justice. As we have previously reported numerous times Jeff Sessions is still hiding under his desk. In the letter Charles Grassley pointed out to Rosenstein that General Mike Flynn was a witness against Andrew McCabe in a sex abuse case when McCabe came to interview him. McCabe later reportedly altered the 302 interview reports and Mike Flynn was forced out of the Trump Campaign. Additionally, former Director McCabe was fired for lack of candor regarding a leak to...

Washington, DC 20530 Dear Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein: The Department's reply to my May 11, 2018 letter seeking information about the circumstances surrounding Lt. General Michael Flynn's reported conversations with the Russian ambassador and FBI records related to those conversations is insufficient. The letter only recounts a series of publicly known facts about Lt. General Flynn's plea agreement and relies on improper excuses in refusing to provide the requested information. The Committee requires this information to fulfill its Constitutional function...

    A top FBI official who oversees the bureau's counterintelligence division faced questions from lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Tuesday about the role of FBI agent Peter Strzok in federal probes, The Hill has learned. Lawmakers and congressional staff questioned Bill Priestap behind closed-doors for several hours as part of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees' joint probe into the FBI's decision-making during the 2016 election. Republicans have been eager to talk to Priestap about his involvement with the bureau's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as its probe into Hillary Clinton's use of...

    A newly-leaked January 29 memo from President Trump's first legal team to special counsel Robert Mueller suggests the president believed fired national security adviser Michael Flynn was no longer under investigation when he famously asked FBI Director James Comey — by Comey's account — to let the Flynn case go. With a wealth of previously-unreleased information about the Flynn affair, the memo also supports the contention that the FBI did not believe Flynn lied to the agents who questioned him in the Trump-Russia probe. The bureau interviewed Flynn on Jan. 24, 2017, about his transition conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey...

    Friday is the deadline for the FBI and Justice Department to give the Senate Judiciary Committee key documents in the Michael Flynn case.It won't happen, because that's not how the current FBI and Justice Department deal with congressional demands involving the Trump-Russia affair. But sooner or later, Judiciary Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is likely to get his way.In a May 11 letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, Grassley noted that more than a year ago, on Feb. 15, 2017, the Judiciary Committee requested a copy of the transcript of a Dec. 2016 phone...

    On Friday May 11, 2018, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein stating Comey testified the FBI didn’t think General Flynn lied. Grassley also revealed Joe Pientka was the second FBI agent who joined Peter Strzok on January 24th, 2017 in an ambush style interview to take down General Flynn. Grassley demanded the FBI and DOJ produce the transcript of Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the related 302’s by May 25th. (302’s are reports FBI agents take to summarize an interview with a subject.) The...

    WASHINGTON — Looking back, John C. Kiriakou admits he should have known better. But when the F.B.I. called him a year ago and invited him to stop by and “help us with a case,” he did not hesitate. Only an hour into what began as a relaxed chat with the two agents — the younger one who traded Pittsburgh Steelers talk with him and the senior investigator with the droopy eye — did he begin to realize just who was the target of their investigation. On Jan. 25, Mr. Kiriakou is scheduled to be sentenced to 30 months in prison...

    Shortened title. Full title: REAKING: Comey & Yates Targeted General Flynn With Counterintel Investigation ONE YEAR Before His Phone Call to Russian Ambassador in 2016 It turns out former FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates targeted General Flynn with a counterintel investigation ONE YEAR before his December 2016 phone call to Russian Ambassador Kislyak during the Trump transition. The reason? Because he was sitting at a table with Vladimir Putin at a Moscow event in December of 2015–the same event Green Party candidate Jill Stein attended. Jill Stein was also sitting at the same table...
  • Senator Grassley appears to be preparing to bust the frame-up of General Flynn

    But in keeping with Grassley's style, which has so often misled his opponents into overconfidence, you have to read between the lines to see where he is heading. The end point: uncovering the plot to frame General Flynn for lying to the FBI, including likely criminal acts by senior members of the FBI. [snip] The killer bombshell is the final paragraph, in which Grassley at long last reveals the name of the other FBI agent present when Peter Strzok interviewed General Flynn about his conversation with Russian ambassador Kislyak and requests an interview with him by committee staff members: As...

    This sort of thing is usually relegated to third world countries and Communist states. Michael FlynnThe loathsome insubordinate Sally Yates cited the Logan Act when she decided to entrap and cripple Michael Flynn for doing nothing more than doing the job he was tasked to do- talk to the Russians during the transition.  Using an act for which no one has ever been prosecuted, she sent FBI agents to interrogate Flynn. They reported that they saw no deceit in Flynn, but somehow he ended up being indicted by Robert Mueller for lying to the FBI after reportedly being exonerated by...

    The House Intelligence Committee on Friday released a newly unredacted section of its final Russia report detailing testimony from former senior FBI officials about the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his contacts with a top Russian diplomat. The unredacted portion of the report, written by Republicans on the panel, details testimony from former FBI Director James Comey and his then-deputy, Andrew McCabe. The report says McCabe, in particular, testified that the two agents who interviewed Flynn “didn’t think he was lying." Despite the agents' initial impressions, McCabe reportedly testified that officials found that Flynn’s statements to...
