“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.
Absolutely correct; Pientka and the agent in Rome who worked with Steele, Halper and Joseph Mifsud... can't recall his name without my archive files. Both disappeared off the face of the earth. One suspects there are deep waters thereabouts.
Perhaps Elon Musk sent them to man the first FBI office on Mars.
Pientka himself a spy perhaps? Strzok is supposed to be on loan from CIA. Perhaps Pientka is as well.
