Report: Top FBI official had it in for Flynn
At:Powerlineblog by Paul Mirengoff
We know that President Obama had it in for Gen. Michael Flynn. The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was a persistent critic of Obama’s feckless policies, especially regarding ISIS.
Obama reportedly advised president-elect Trump not to offer Flynn a high level position.
According to this report from Circa, the FBI’s Andrew McCabe also had an ax to grind with Flynn. A few years ago, Robyn Gritz, a supervisory special agent, filed a discrimination/retaliation claim against the FBI. Flynn supported Gritz’s claim.
McCabe was implicated in the retaliation part of the case.
