Anti-Trump FBI Agent Tricked Michael Flynn Into Talking Without A Lawyer, Report Suggests

FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was given the axe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for sending anti-Trump texts to his mistress, also interviewed Michael Flynn in January and essentially tricked him into speaking without a lawyer, according to a new report from Sara Carter.

A supervisory special agent who is now under scrutiny after being removed from Robert Mueller's Special Counsel's Office for alleged bias against President Trump also oversaw the bureau's interviews of embattled former National Security advisor Michael Flynn, this reporter has learned. Flynn recently pled guilty to one-count of lying to the FBI last week.

FBI agent Peter Strzok was one of two FBI agents who interviewed Flynn, which took place on Jan. 24, at the White House, said several sources. The other FBI special agent, who interviewed Flynn, is described by sources as a field supervisor in the "Russian Squad, at the FBI's Washington Field Office," according to a former intelligence official, with knowledge of the interview.
Strzok was removed from his role in the Special Counsel's Office after it was discovered he had made disparaging comments about President Trump in text messages between him and his alleged lover FBI attorney Lisa Page, according to the New York Times and Washington Post, which first reported the stories. Strzok is also under investigation by the Department of Justice Inspector General for his role in Hillary Clinton's email server and the ongoing investigation into Russia's election meddling. On Saturday, the House Intelligence Committee's Chairman Devin Nunes chided the Justice Department and the FBI for not disclosing why Strzok had been removed from the Special Counsel three months ago, according to a statement given by the Chairman.

The former U.S. intelligence official told this reporter, "with the recent revelation that Strzok was removed from the Special Counsel investigation for making anti-Trump text messages it seems likely that the accuracy and veracity of the 302 of Flynn's interview as a whole should be reviewed and called into question."

"The most logical thing to happen would be to call the other FBI Special Agent present during Flynn's interview before the Grand Jury to recount his version," the former intelligence official added.

The former official also said that "Strzok's allegiance to (Deputy Director Andrew) McCabe was unwavering and very well known."
McCabe, working with Strzok and another agent, carried out what appears to be an elaborate scam to trick Flynn into speaking with them casually without a lawyer:
According to another source, with direct knowledge of the Jan. 24 interview, McCabe had contacted Flynn by phone directly at the White House. White House officials had spent the "earlier part of the week with the FBI overseeing training and security measures associated with their new roles so it was no surprise to Flynn that McCabe had called," the source said.

McCabe told Flynn "some agents were heading over (to the White House) but Flynn thought it was part of the routine work the FBI had been doing and said they would be cleared at the gate," the source said.

"It wasn't until after they were already in (Flynn's) office that he realized he was being formerly interviewed. He didn't have an attorney with him," they added.
FBI agents are allowed to lie to people with impunity in order to catch them telling "lies." Flynn probably thought he had nothing to hide so he answered a few questions to the best of his recollection. Little did he know these were Trump haters out for blood.

While self-righteous James Comey arrogantly tweeted a bible verse about "justice" in response to Flynn's guilty plea, this is no more "justice" than the sentencing of Martha Stewart. Flynn was bankrupted by a deep state crony who helped sell the Iraq war based on lies.

Mueller has an unlimited war chest which he's using to bully people into submission. He's not seeking justice, he's seeking vengeance because Trump managed to one-up the deep state and defeat their puppet in the general election.
