Newly Released Docs Reveal FBI Investigated Andrew McCabe For Leaking About General Flynn
Newly released FBI docs reveal the bureau investigated former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in March of 2017 for an unauthorized media leak about General Mike Flynn.
The leak occurred in February of 2017, shortly before General Flynn was fired from his post as National Security Advisor, according an FBI document published as part of a tranche of FOIA documents released.
Details about the nature of the leak were not provided.
“OPA EM was electronically contacted by (redacted) regarding a media leak involving a statement overheard in early February 2017, allegedly made by FBI EM,” the document reads “Specifically, the alleged comments were made by DD A.G. McCabe and pertained to General Michael T. Flynn and the POTUS.” (screenshot below)
Peter Strzok and special FBI agent Joe Pientka questioned General Flynn in an ambush-style interview on January 24th of 2017 about his series of phone calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak–Flynn did not have his attorneys present.
A few weeks later, General Flynn was fired from his post and he was subsequently charged for making a false statement by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Obama’s corrupt agencies had a counterintelligence operation open on General Flynn during the Trump transition and kept it going because of an illegal media leak about his call to Russian Ambassador Kislyak.
Andrew McCabe was fired from his position as FBI Deputy Director in mid-March after Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded he ‘lacked candor’ and lied to investigators, including under oath several times.
Robert Mueller is set to sentence General Flynn in December; the President should issue a full pardon to Mike Flynn.
