Radio Recap – FBI Agent in Special Counsel’s Office Says Flynn Prosecution Was to “Get Trump”
An FBI agent on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team said that the entire investigation was to “get Trump” and that it was a “dead end.”
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed the latest bombshells about the Russia probe. There were several. The biggest one was that a former member of Mueller’s team, an FBI agent, said that the entire investigation was to “get Trump.” There were also more developments in the General Flynn matter.
There are so many developments that happed last night. The first as we’ve noted, is the former member of the Mueller team’s testimony that included him saying that the entire investigation was to “get Trump.” He told the DOJ that the investigation into General Flynn was part of an attitude to “get Trump” and that he didn’t wish to pursue a Russia Collusion investigation as it was “not there” and he also considered it to be a “dead end.”
Also, it is now known that the FBI and Special Counsel’s team knew all along that the main source for the Steele Dossier had been a suspected Russian agent committing potential illegal activity. So this agent was dangerous. I’m going to say this again because it bears repeating. They knew this the entire time at the FBI and the Special Counsel’s office and yet they tried to take the Steele Dossier in and use it as a predicate for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants on American citizens and to spy on the Trump campaign.
We’ve also got new filings in the Flynn case. These new filings shed light on what was happening during the FBI investigation into General Flynn, even before the Special Counsel’s office started their work. One of the most interesting pieces of information that came out was that FBI agents took out professional liability insurance for fear of being sued.
It gets even more interesting when you can see the communications between the FBI agents who wanted to close the Flynn investigation. In these text messages from October of 2016, the FBI employees seemed concerned about the scope of the investigation. They discussed an investigator who is “one of the worst offenders of the rabbit holes and conspiracy theories.” They also said, “If this thing every gets FOIA’d, there’s going to be some tough questions asked.” Of course, remember there’s current U.S. attorneys looking into all of this.
There were so many new developments that you will not want to miss listening or watching today’s show.
