It’s a question that has been asked several times: why is FBI Director Christopher Wray now starting an internal review of those within the FBI who were engaged with the events around Lt. General Michael Flynn. Why did he wait so long?
In this interview Representative Andy Biggs discusses that question. WATCH:
The most likely answer is simply sunlight. The corrupt FBI activity was clearly evident within the organization in 2018 and 2019. However, the recent change is the public awareness of it with documented evidence.
Keep in mind there are dozens of currently employed FBI officials, agents, analysts and administrators who participated in the effort. As a result of USAO Jeff Jensen reviewing the activity; and in combination with DNI Ric Grenell declassifying and releasing the information to the public; FBI Director Chris Wray has no choice.
Remember, despite his involvement FBI supervising agent David Archey was promoted and now leads the Virginia field office. Additionally, one of the key actors, FBI Agent Joe Pientka, was transferred to San Francisco. Both Archey and Pientka are part of a much larger network of FBI officials that remain currently employed and have never been held accountable.
Agent’s Pientka and Archey were coordinating their corrupt operations with several dozen FBI officials and staff.
