On Monday and Tuesday I laid out how Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff Josh Pitcock was recruited by the corrupt FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to spy on the incoming Trump administration.
Strzok and Page worked with Pitcock’s wife, Katherine Seaman, as an analyst on the Hillary Clinton email probe.
SO who was the person most harmed within the newly elected Trump Administration by this nefarious spying operation? Lt. Gen Mike Flynn.
Flynn briefly served — 24 days — as the National Security Advisor to President Trump before being charged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for lying to federal agents about contacts with Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak.
And how did the FBI agents Joe Pientka and Strzok know Flynn was lying?
Well, they taped the conversation with Kislyak without Flynn’s knowledge. They also questioned him without a lawyer present, which then-FBI Director James Comey said, “We tricked him into cooperating.”
So on December 1, 2017, Flynn agreed to a plea bargain with Mueller to “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding conversations with Russia’s ambassador.
Specifically, Flynn falsely denied that he had asked Kislyak on December 29, 2016, “to refrain from escalating … in response to sanctions that the United States had imposed against Russia that same day.”
However the twist in this case is that Federal Judge Emmet G. Sullivan has refused and delayed sentencing of Flynn a handful of times, based on classified documents contained in the case file.
Could these new texts from Page and Strzok contain information that Pence’s office was also working with the FBI to get rid of Flynn since he knew too much?
That’s a narrative that is gaining ground as FISA declassification nears.
