FBI retaliation against Michael Flynn may have been the real reason for launching the Russia probe, according to a new report from Circa News.
The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureauís leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.
The FBI sought to block Flynnís support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case, memos obtained by Circa show. Two years later, the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn.Read their full report.
It's a lot more plausible than the FBI actually believing the lie that "the Russkies hacked our election."
Senator Chuck Grassley late last week demanded to know why McCabe hasn't recused himself from the Flynn probe despite "the appearance of political and other conflicts of interest."
"[The] evidence and the failure to recuse calls into question whether Mr. McCabe handled the Flynn investigation fairly and objectively, or whether he had any retaliatory motive against Flynn for being an adverse witness to him in a pending proceeding," he said.
