Why was his name omitted in the IG Report?
Probably because he wasn’t charged with anything, and wasn’t part of Crossfire Hurricane.
He is the one whose name the FBI switched on the 302 with Strzok, and didn’t inform the court for over two years.
“Why was his name omitted in the IG Report?”
Good question — and it’s not just the IG report. Even though somehow we all “know” about Joe Pientka’s participation in the Flynn interview, the Hillary whitewash, etc., it’s not from official sources. The feds seem to always mask his identity, while throwing out other agents’ names willy-nilly. It is a mystery why they continue to try to hide him. Were I Judge Sullivan, long ago I would have ordered Pientka to appear before me in court for a little answer session. He knows critical info about the Flynn case that the lawyers keep hiding — just force it out of the guy.
