FBI Director Christopher Wray has been diligently but quietly investigating whether a group of the FBI’s top agents waged a political-fueled vigilante campaign against Gen. Mike Flynn and President Donald Trump, according the FBI sources.
Yes, it is the stuff Hollywood movies are made of but this is real life. With real consequences.
Flynn just plead guilty in federal court to not telling the truth during a FBI ambush interview in early 2017 and Trump remains the target of a partisan and problematic investigation by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is anything but an unbiased party in this process.
But was Flynn targeted?
And was Trump targeted?
For their politics.
Wray, according to sources, is honing in on the FBI brass who cheered deputy director Andrew McCabe during a packed staff meeting in early 2017, just after Trump was inaugurated.
As True Pundit reported in March, mere days before Gen. Michael Flynn was sacked as national security advisor, McCabe gathered more than a dozen of his top FBI disciples to plot how to ruin Flynn’s aspiring political career and manufacture evidence to derail President Donald Trump, according to FBI sources.
McCabe, the second highest ranking FBI official, emphatically declared at the invite-only gathering with raised voice: “Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump,” according to direct sources. Many of his top lieutenants applauded and cheered such rhetoric. A scattered few did not.
This was one of several such meetings held in seclusion among key FBI leaders since Trump was elected president, FBI sources confirm. At the congregation where McCabe went off the political rails and vowed to destroy Flynn and Trump, there were as many as 16 top FBI officials, inside intelligence sources said. No lower-level agents or support personnel were present.
Now, ten months later, FBI sources said Wray has been isolating and interviewing agents and former agents to put a list together to pinpoint who was present at the meeting and confirm the reporting by True Pundit.
No other media publication could duplicate True Pundit’s sourcing but Wray, FBI sources said, has already confirmed McCabe’s statements during his inquiry. However, it appears many in the upper ranks of Wray’s FBI — labeled McCabe disciples — may not be cooperating with the internal inquiry. Therefore, Wray continues to work all other channels to firm up who was at the meeting and who the broadcast of the meeting, which was supposedly teleconferenced to agents in other field offices, went out to.
It does not appear an official recording of the broadcast was maintained of the meeting, sources said.
Ex-FBI Director James Comey did not investigate the meeting and other subsequent meetings similar to the F*ck Flynn meeting prior to his dismissal in June, according to FBI sources.
Wray, however, is investigating.
What is the end game here? Wray has not ruled out forcing retirements, firings, demoting agents in pay grade and other disciplinary action, sources confirm.
Meanwhile, McCabe faces new allegations weekly — on many different fronts — and is expected to leave the FBI within weeks, sources said. He is the target of at least two other external probes, from the United States Office of the Inspector General and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Wray has asked the OIG to expedite the report of its FBI probe before year’s end, according to FBI sources, to likewise expedite possible disciplinary where warranted.
Days after McCabe’s ‘F*ck Flynn’ tirade, Flynn was forced to resign. That was no coincidence.
As former Defense Intelligence Agency Director, Flynn had undressed the FBI in a letter previously by backing FBI Supervisory Agent Robin Gritz who filed a discrimination action against McCabe. Gritz worked with McCabe as the Bureau’s liaison to the central Intelligence Agency and the DIA. He wrote a letter attesting to the professional character of Gritz, which undermined McCabe’s bargaining power in the harassment suit.
That’s when trouble seemed to begin for Flynn.
True Pundit wrote in March:
This is how secret coups waged by the top law enforcement personnel in the top law enforcement agency in any country operate. Efficiently. If the FBI wants you silenced or out of a job, you’ll be unemployed. Ask Michael Flynn and countless others.
Part of the plan hatched at that gathering was to make sure Flynn’s wiretapped conversations were leaked to the media, FBI and intelligence sources said. They were. Did the FBI leak this classified intelligence to the news media? Isn’t that a question President Trump and Congress should be posing? If nothing else, McCabe and his FBI secret council are certainly now suspects of who possibly leaked the intelligence. Seems that a number of polygraphs should be in order.
Embattled FBI Director James Comey did not attend these private meetings of his interoffice revolutionaries, sources said, though he was aware of the gatherings yet did not discourage them or McCabe’s inflammatory and dangerous rhetoric. Some FBI agents have questioned if the Anti-Trump attitude shared in the secret sit downs with the bureau’s top brass is now the official platform of the FBI. The FBI, many agents quietly agree, has proven no friend to the newly minted US president. And they are beginning to understand why.
Now, ten months later, it appears these words and sentiments ring even more prophetic.
