On February 13th, 2017, Michael T. Flynn, Trump’s national security advisor, resigned from his position after having served for less than a month due to conversations he had with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.
However, new evidence may prove that Michael Flynn was likely framed and targeted by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe due to a personal vendetta he had against him. (via Circa)
The origin of this grudge apparently comes from two years ago when Flynn came to the personal defense of decorated FBI Agent Robyn Gritz, who had claimed that she was being discriminated against by the FBI. More specifically, she accused the now active FBI Director Andrew McCabe of sex discrimination against her.
Flynn’s defense of Gritz’s excellent record allegedly prompted the FBI to ask a federal judge to block Flynn from becoming a witness in her equal employment opportunity case.
Guess who is now leading the Russian investigation into Michael Flynn? If you said “Andrew McCabe,” you win the prize.
The case against Gritz, still pending, required McCabe to submit a sworn statement to investigators, with his testimony providing evidence that the case issued against her was retaliation since he admitted the FBI opened an internal investigation into Gritz’s personal conduct only after learning she intended to file a discrimination complaint.
Many of the bureau’s employees are finding themselves uncomfortable with McCabe’s handling of the Russia probe and agreed only to speak if they could be guaranteed anonymity for fear of retribution.
“As far as the troops in the field, the vast majority were disgusted with the Russia decision,” said a senior law enforcement official. “The Flynn leaks were nothing short of political.”
They continued, revealing that they “personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general emerged as a figure in the Russia case.”
As for Gritz’s record, she had a history of excellence in performance, rising up in the ranks of the FBI for over 20 years. “Gritz was well-known, liked and respected in the military counter-terrorism community for her energy, commitment, and professional capacity, and over the years worked in several inter-agency groups on counter-terrorism targeting initiatives,” wrote Flynn.
Trouble came when she began working under McCabe and his leadership, and she received the first negative review in her entire career. This led to the agent suspecting discrimination might be the cause of this sudden negative appraisal.
McCabe has been a controversial figure in the FBI and came under scrutiny himself during the Clinton email scandal. His wife, Jill McCabe, took almost $500,000 from Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s PAC to fund her campaign for State Senate. Jill was a long-time confidant of the Clinton family.
The prospect that General Flynn was ousted from his position in a politically-charged and personally-motivated dispute simply because he came to the defense of a respected colleague should be startling, to say the least.
Unlike what the media would have you believe, the truth behind this situation apparently goes much deeper than it first appeared.
