Wray Reversal – FBI Launches Internal Investigation Surrounding FBI Conduct in Flynn Case…

This is not a surprising development; though with breaking news it is prudent to pause before assigning motives.  At first review it appears the FBI cannot hold back the sunlight.

FBI Director Christopher Wray has announced his launching of an internal investigation based on details surfacing from the Michael Flynn case. “FBI Director Christopher Wray today ordered the Bureau’s Inspection Division [INSD] to conduct an after-action review of the Michael Flynn investigation” the bureau said in the statement:

(screen grab from Catherine Herridge)

This is an interesting development considering this same FBI Director previously claimed the office of inspector general found no intentional wrongdoing by people within the FBI; and Wray further asserted there was “no evidence of political bias” after each of three OIG investigations completed in 2018 and 2019.

If the OIG did not find FBI wrongdoing, then what changed?  Why is FBI Director Chris Wray now launching an internal investigation?  The answer appears to be an outsider’s investigation via Missouri U.S. Attorney, Jeff Jensen.

Second part of statement below:

The inspection division (INSD) previously reviewed FBI conduct and reported to Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  The resulting IG findings of FBI conduct was carefully worded and disingenuous at best, but it was embraced by FBI Director Wray.

Now the outsider review by US Attorney Jeff Jensen; combined with the simultaneous declassification of documents by DNI Ric Grenell; appears to be highlighting a lot more internal FBI corruption.  Hence this unavoidable shift in tone from Wray.

This announcement today comes as Ric Grenell is working to declassify the transcript(s) of the Flynn-Kislyak call, with some rather interesting comments.  More soon…

      History appears to show Wray is corrupt, and if so, then Wray knows Jensen’s investigation will eventually lead back to Wray.

      Wray is now attempting to “CO-OPT” this investigation by “utilizing to the extent practicable” the same Agents that Jensen is using.

      In other words, Wray is PLANTING A SERIES OF “MOLES” in the Jensen investigation, and spying on what Jensen is doing “real-time” so that he, Wray, can deduce where Jensen is headed, and hide or destroy evidence before Jensen can get to it.

      By “utilizing” those same agents, Wray could also “divert” them off into wild goose chases.

      If i were Barr. I would fight this, and make sure that Wray has NO access whatsoever to the Jensen investigation, or the agents part of it.

      • I believe it was mainly Grenell, revealing that he is going to present the Flynn-Kislyak call transcript, for all now to see. That is the smoking gun, the definite proof: There was no predicate to investigate Flynn, just crooked cops with a crooked Commander-In-Chief. All that’s left is to see how they will lie to keep people from the obvious: Obama knew what was in the call, yet chose to pretend it was “highly concerning”.

        Rationally, it is all over but the crying and other denouements (epic, to be sure).

        Tell Graham never mind, we don’t need his stin-king investigation (cf. “Treasure of the Sierra Madre”). Or Wray’s. Or even Jensen’s “report”. Sidney Powell and Ric Grenell gave us the whole shebang.

        Of course, the insanity and other trends mean “your mileage may vary” (cough-cough; “Quite right…carry on, chaps…quite right…time for tea…move along”).

      Yes, this. Exactly.

      Wray timed it such that his investigation will plod on through the summer and fall. Through the campaign. No new information, no findings, but the investigation creates a pretense to avoid answering questions, and to put off inquiries. More redactions.

      Sometime after the election, on a Friday afternoon before a three-day weekend, they’ll announce their meaningless, watered down, corrupt and benign results. This is the way of the Swamp.

      It is a ham-handed, desperate ploy to try and help Judge Sullied-van keep from closing the Flynn case. The premise of which is; “We cant close Flynn until Director Wray’s investigation is completed, as there is surely new evidence coming forth”. Time for Barr to step in and say, “It’s over Chris, I’ll expect your resignation on my desk by Tuesday, or else I am going to fire you for cause, which means, no pension, its over Chris”.

    Interesting, isn’t it, that Jensen has not folded his tent and departed for Missouri?

    Durham’s work started out as a criminal leak investigation. When AG Barr came in, the task expanded to determining if the Mueller Special Counsel’s Russia investigation had been properly predicated.

    Now Matt Whitaker has a book out in which he (reportedly) contends that the Flynn investigation was not properly predicated. Jensen is sticking around to investigate those Flynn investigators.

    When Durham unseals indictments and Jensen (at the very least) releases his report, some very sketchy FBI and DOJ people may truly be caught in a Crossfire Hurricane,

    It’s May 22, 2020 and Director Wray has finally responded more seriously “in writing” about the FBI Corruption and Dirty Tricks that started in 2016 or earlier. Under Wray’s lack of competent leadership, the FBI appears to be only capable of being a rapid action force when a home invasion of a non violent, pro Trump senior citizen’s home is scheduled to be invaded for political reasons.

Didn’t Schiff requested the declassification/transcripts of the Flynn-Kislyak call?

    It’s impossible to overstate the damage that Comey and the small group did to the FBI’s reputation. It’s completely in tatters. Even Democrats, some of whom chortle with delight at its politicization in their favor know it.

    I stand by what I said some time back, Wray’s resignation will signal the next big chapter in the reckoning and rebuilding. Until then it’s important that he remains in place under close direction and supervision of Barr.

    You really don’t get any better than this statement when it comes to the long awaited and desperately needed house-cleaning. It couldn’t be clearer.

    There is also political value in leaving Wray in place to complete these essential tasks. When he resigns, POTUS Trump will make the most important replacement nomination for FBI Director in its history.

    Comey and his merry band really fixed it! The FBI, including its director, is now completely under the authority of the Attorney General and DOJ. It no longer has authority to defensively brief campaigns, and I expect that a big reorganization is coming to DOJ/NSD.

  38. Newhere says:

    While Barr absolutely did the right thing in dropping the Flynn case, there remains a core contradiction that the other side exploits.

    Technically speaking, there was no “new evidence.” Calling what Jensen uncovered “new” denies or attempts to obfuscate the fact that agents and prosecutors — ie, the Justice Department — always HAD IT. That one arm had to wrest it from another arm doesn’t make it “new.” It’s not newly uncovered or newly known to the Department.

    By calling suppressed evidence “new,” Barr attempted to sidestep the clear and obvious fact that individuals in his own department and the FBI were suppressing it. By calling it new, he doesn’t have to admit that the review of the case that he ordered revealed that his own investigators and prosecutors (and indeed, his own predecessor) withheld evidence they were required to turn over in order to maintain charges for a non-existent crime.”

    Calling the evidence “new” is a mischaracterization used to create space for plausible deniability on the corruption and criminality; but it also fails to provide a definitive explanation of what happened, giving The Resistance an open field for narrative construction.

    Not only that, it’s legitimately shady. A skeptic can legitimately look at Barr and say: “OK, you’re taking the extraordinary step of withdrawing charges that only mere months ago your Department vigorously argued for and stood by — and you’re doing so on the basis and theory that evidence long known to investigators and prosecutors belies their own conclusions — again, conclusions this Department has stood by for years up until weeks ago. If this is not arbitrary or political — where droppeth the other shoe? Where is the explanation? Firings, discipline … where are indictments?”

    These are fair questions.

    And I would add — Barr playing it coy makes the onslaught against General Flynn and Sidney Powell even worse. Barr’s DOJ coudn’t have continued to prosecute this case down to the wire; so, while he gets some credit for withdrawing the charges … honestly, somewhere along the line the DOJ would be forced to put up or shut up. “Correcting” mistakes, in a narrow, technical fashion, isn’t exactly a profile in courage or a win for Justice with a capital J.

    By not expressly renouncing and retracting former accusations and statements about Flynn — and stating clearly that there was prosecutorial misconduct — Barr has left room for opponents and even Judge Sullivan himself to point to unretracted or contradicted statements and “evidence” put forth by Barr’s own prosecutors. Statements and evidence which presumably or implicitly are rendered moot by the motion to withdraw charges — but which still haven’t *actually* been corrected or called out.

    So for Wray only NOW to open an investigation about misconduct only adds to confusion and actually undercuts Barr; because it makes it seem like the question of misconduct hasn’t been answered, when in fact, Barr’s motion to withdraw is predicated on misconduct, which Barr won’t admit. It’s all FUBAR. But Wray making this announcement now seems calculated to exploit the fine line Barr has tried to walk.

    Barr needs to step up. If he doesn’t, all of this may not end well. If nothing else, Barr’s weak, technocratic move is exacerbating the injustice directed at Flynn, even as Barr ostensibly is trying to fix it.

    Fun facts about Borax…

    Dunno how common knowledge this is, but did you know Borax is the active ingredient in most ant killers?

    The slow kill…

    Now if there is a Ginormous sized bait trap available for the thief ants, ghost ants and big headed ants infesting Wash. DC…

    https://www.terro.com/terro-liquid-ant-baits-2-pack

    HOW LIQUID ANT BAIT WORKS
    Since this is a bait, initially you will see more ants – but don’t worry, this is a good thing. Why? As ants forage for food, they are easily attracted to the sweet, sugary liquid inside the bait stations. After finding the bait, worker ants consume it and leave behind a pheromone trail leading back to the colony. This trail lets other worker ants know where the newly discovered food supply is. This is why you will see more ants in the beginning.

    Meanwhile, the active ingredient, Borax, is slowly interfering with the ant’s digestive system, ultimately killing it, but leaving enough time for the ant to go back and share the dose with the rest of the colony. This slow kill is necessary so that foraging ants can make several trips to the bait. The communal nature of an ant colony allows the bait to be spread to hundreds, if not thousands, of individual ants.

    Active Ingredients 5.40% Sodium Tetraborate Decahydrate (Borax)

    Eliminates Ants: including acrobat ants, allegheny ants, argentine ants, big headed ants, cornfield ants, crazy ants, ghost ants, little black ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, pyramid ants, thief ants, white footed ants, and other sweet eating ants (except fire ants, pharaoh ants, carpenter ants, and harvester ants)
