If in fact former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn did lie to an FBI agent as he pleaded guilty to doing last week, then that’s on him: There was no reason for him to do so because he hadn’t done anything illegal or even improper.
But because the agent he lied to — Peter Strzok — has since been removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s staff for being a pro-Hillary Clinton hack, Flynn’s admission and, indeed, the entire reason why he was questioned about his conversations with a Russian diplomat in the first place, go a long way towards proving without a doubt just how corrupt and politicized the FBI has become.
In other words, the FBI has been transformed into the kind of political secret police force that used to terrorize Soviet citizens: The KGB.
That’s a very strong statement to make, but believe me when I tell you I do not make it lightly. (Related: Mueller’s entire “Russian collusion” probe of Team Trump is a politically motivated SCAM and must be shut down.)
Consider all that we’ve learned in recent weeks regarding just this one agent, Strzok:
— Though Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI, two of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides — Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills — also made false statements to Strzok, denying that they knew anything about their boss’ email server. Emails from long before Strzok interviewed them both indicate that they did know, meaning they lied to the FBI. But they were never charged.
— He was fingered by the Justice Department’s inspector general for having exchanged “anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor [Hillary] Clinton” with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was also having an extramarital affair.
— He was the lead investigator in the criminal probe of Hillary Clinton’s illegal mishandling of classified materials via her home-brew email server — crimes she most definitely committed, according to numerous legal experts but for which she was never even recommended for charges.
— He was also the one who softened language in a statement then-FBI Director James Comey read to the press in July 2016. The original language in Comey’s statement described Clinton’s behavior as “grossly negligent,” which is taken directly from the statute, to “extremely careless,” which has no legal weight.
— And again, let’s not forget that he was on Mueller’s staff and that Mueller is investigating Team Trump and the president himself as a special counsel for “collusion,” though that’s not even a violation of the law.
There are more examples of FBI malfeasance and politicization: Enter, once again, James Comey:
— During his July 2016 press conference to lay out the Clinton criminal investigation — which in and of itself was outside of standard FBI procedure to not publicly discuss an ongoing case — he laid out a list of criminal activities she had engaged in, but then refused to characterize the activities as criminal in nature (hence the Strzok language alteration). Comey was a career Justice Department and FBI official; he knew the statute that Clinton had violated. He knew that her behavior was “grossly negligent” (as he himself wrote in his first draft) but then permitted that language (taken directly from the criminal code) to be changed into something no one had ever heard of.
— We have also discovered that Comey was never going to recommend Clinton be charged in the first place. Reports earlier this year noted that Comey’s memo exonerating her months in advance, while the investigation was still underway. The drafting of the memo occurred even before Comey and FBI agents had interviewed Clinton herself.
In addition to the FBI, the Office of Special Counsel and the Justice Department have also been shown to be utterly corrupt.
“The agencies have, in the past, gone light on Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, but laid perjury traps for Trump officials like Flynn, who served as national security adviser for President Donald Trump for less than a month,” Lifezette reports.
