Report Says FBI ‘Misidentified’ Anti-Trump Agent’s Notes In Mike Flynn Case

Published

on

Former White House National Security Adviser Mike Flynn’s legal team are extremely upset after finding out the attorneys responsible for prosecuting Flynn admitted that they “misidentified” the sources of the FBI notes that are the basis for the entire case against their client.

Here are more details from The Daily Wire:

The notes on the conversation with Flynn that the prosecutors believed were written by anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok, the prosecutors admitted in a letter Tuesday, were in fact written by his partner, Joe Pientka. The admission further calls into question Strzok’s credibility, as he had insisted that Pientka was “primarily responsible” for taking the notes and writing the key document in the case, the FD-302 form. The admission also follows the defense’s accusation that the FBI deliberately altered the original 302 form to suggest Flynn had lied about his contact with a Russian ambassador

As reported by National Review‘s Tobias Hoonhout on Wednesday, in a letter sent to Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell, the Justice Department prosecuting attorneys were forced to admit that they had been misidentifying the sources of the notes on the FBI’s January 2017 interview with Flynn for the entirety of the case, some 18 months.

Since the FBI does not record its interviews, such notes stand in place of an official transcript. The notes incorrectly believed to have been taken by Strzok formed the basis of the official FBI document on the interview.

Hoonhout goes on to write, “The FBI’s admission calls into further question the credibility of the case and of former FBI agent Peter Strzok, who told the FBI that his partner Joe Pientka was ‘primarily responsible for taking notes and writing the FD-302.”

“In defending Flynn, Powell has argued that Strzok’s supposed notes were too orderly and well constructed to have been taken in the actual interview. Now the letter, coupled with prosecution’s release of notes last week, apparently reveal that Strzok, in fact, took the majority of the notes in the interview,” he explains.

Strzok has become an important figure not only in Flynn’s case, but also due to his being connected to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured private email server which she was using to conduct official state business. He was also a member of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigative team, but was removed after evidence surfaced showcasing his blatant anti-Trump bias.

Omar Demands Trump ‘Step Down’ Over GAO Report, But Obama Violated Federal Law 7 Times

How about them apples?

Rookie lawmaker Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has enough problems of her own to be worrying about. After all, the FBI, ICE, and another federal agency are looking into potential crimes she may have committed, including student loan fraud and immigration fraud. Omar doesn’t need to tweet silly stuff like this, for reasons that will be made abundantly clear in about 30 seconds. Just keep scrolling… Here’s her misleading tweet: https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1217859115260751877?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1217859115260751877&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2020%2F01%2F16%2Filhan-omar-president-trump-must-step-down%2F Here’s why Omar’s tweet is nonsensical, via Hot Air: In the summer of 2019, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) withheld from obligation funds appropriated to the Department of Defense (DOD) for security assistance to Ukraine. In order to withhold the funds, OMB issued a series of nine apportionment schedules with footnotes that made all unobligated balances unavailable for obligation. Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA). The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that OMB violated the ICA. Continued: Read the whole report, however, and one finds the glaring issue with this conclusion, which is that the administration didn’t have an obligation to release the funds on any specific date in the fiscal year. All they needed to do was to make sure the money got spent by the last day of the budget cycle. Also, did Omar know that the Obama administration was called out SEVEN TIMES by the GAO? Where were calls for Barack to step down? Nevertheless, if a mere GAO finding is sufficient to justify impeachment, then President Barack Obama ought to have been impeached at least seven times over for each of the following cases in which…

CNN Reports That Lev Parnas Spoke With Trump, But He Just Admitted He Never Did (Details)

What is going on here?

Out of nowhere, after the House of Representatives had voted to impeach President Trump, Lev Parnas appears as if a stripper from an oversized birthday cake. How did that come about? And why is CNN reporting something that even Parnas himself is denying? From Washington Examiner: Indicted businessman Lev Parnas said he did not speak directly with President Trump about a pressure campaign against Ukraine that sought to benefit Trump politically, despite earlier reports to the contrary. Last November, CNN reported that Parnas told close associates he had spoken to Trump. “At one point during the party that night, Parnas and Fruman slipped out of a large reception room packed with hundreds of Trump donors to have a private meeting with the President and Giuliani, according to two acquaintances in whom Parnas confided right after the meeting,” CNN wrote. Parnas allegedly aided Giuliani in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his involvement in a potential abuse of power to protect his son, Hunter, from an investigation into some rather shady business dealings. Parnas has also handed over some documents and messages to the House Intelligence Committee that includes more detailed information about the “pressure campaign” which also includes a letter Giuliani sent to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The letter seems to indicate that Giuliani was acting at the direction of the president. The president commented on this by denying he knew anything about the letter and claimed not to know Parnas. https://youtu.be/RrZIeZSh8GQ
