FBI Chief Wray Orders Internal Probe Into Bureau’s Handling Of Flynn Investigation

(Liberty Bell) – On Friday, FBI Director Christopher Wray ordered an internal probe into how the bureau handled the notorious Michael Flynn case.

This comes just two weeks after the Justice Department announced they would be dropping the charges against the former Trump national security adviser, stating that they had no grounds on which to interview Flynn in 2017.

Recently-released documents from Flynn’s first law firm have undermined the original case against the general.

Just the News reports that the FBI announced on Friday that Wray “today ordered the Bureau’s Inspection Division to conduct an after-action review of the Michael Flynn investigation.”

The Inspection Division is the FBI equivalent of internal affairs offices in lower law enforcement agencies, the outlet notes.

According to Fox News, the bureau will seek to identify whether any agents still with the FBI had “engaged in misconduct” during the investigation. They will also examine whether or not they can improve their investigation process moving forward.

Considering the ambush-style interview that Flynn unwittingly found himself the subject of at the White House in the early days of Trump’s presidency, this sounds like the very least the bureau could do.

The FBI’s statement said that it “does not have the ability to take any disciplinary action” against former employees.

It is worthy of note that Peter Strzok, one of the agents who interviewed Flynn and whose name has arisen in the midst of the scandal that has now been dubbed “Obamagate,” is no longer with the bureau.

Just the News explains of the Flynn case:

Flynn’s plight has received new attention in recent weeks, starting with the stunning Justice Department announcement at the beginning of the month.

Following the department’s decision, the judge overseeing the Flynn case, Emmet Sullivan, declined to immediately dismiss it per the recommendation from Justice, instead inviting an amicus curiae brief from retired Judge John Gleeson in support of continuing the case against the general.

Flynn’s team this week filed an appeal requesting the dismissal of Sullivan and the barring of Gleeson’s brief from the proceeding. A federal appeals court on Thursday agreed to hear Flynn’s case against Sullivan, and also, in a rare directive, gave Sullivan an 11-day deadline to explain his handling of the ongoing trial.

  1. Director Wray has lost face on his credibility to lead the FBI and now an internal investigation. It certainly appears this will be another whitewash because this started from the top down. The caboose was not pushing this train wreck.

  2. This POS needs to be fired. How long has he been director all this time and he say’s it now???? He knows the truth will destroy the trust, his career and the FBI for the next 20-30 yrs.

  3. I didn’t like Wray from the beginning and thought him a deep state operative. Having said that the evidence that has come out looks damning to the those who were involved in this illegal investigation against Flynn. Most of us knows this already but it could very well be that a conversation with Trump holding the proof in his hands tells Wray that you need to do something that will clean house of those in involved in this coup. I would like to believe that with a new DNI that documents are released and Obama operatives will be ousted from their positions in government. This would work better for Durham because it’s easier to indict a non governmental employee. I guess we will see.

    • As long as the internal investigation is non-biased ie: not designed to “find something” fabricated.

  4. Christopher Wray cannot be trusted to investigate honorably and that is a fact. I do not know how deep this runs in the FBI but I am afraid it runs deeper than most think.

  5. Wow! How about putting the fox in the hen house!
    Does anyone think this will be a real investigation?
    Not me, I will be sceptical of the results if any ever come out!

    • OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE ARE BECOMING VERY AWARE OF THE FAILINGS OF THE FBI,CIA AND THE DOJ. BILLY THE BOINKER AND OBAMY WEAPONIZED THEM FOR THEIR OWN USE. WRAY HAS SAT ON HIS HANDS AND DONE NOTHING UNTIL THE FLYNN DEBACLE HAS EXPOSED THE FBI FOR WHAT IT IS NOW…A FRIGGING JOKE WITH LITTLE GIRLS RUNNING AROUND WITH FLAK JACKETS ARMED WITH AR15 ARRESTING AMERICAN CITIZENS FROM THEIR BEDS.

  6. Stay has had extreme difficulty doing any action of individuals in FBI. He has failed to do anything on outside IG investigations critical of F B I individuals or any part of the organization. It is time for him to go!!

  7. Drain the swamp. What has he been doing for the past everybody knows except him? Is he brain dead,or a registered swamp member???

    • Where the hell has this clueless idiot been for the last 2 years. This is a desperate attempt to save face and his job. He should be removed ASAP!

  8. In police departments, IAD is the most feared and most hated division. Their findings normally remain within their PDs, but can be brutal. I see no reason to conclude that the FBI cannot investigate itself. I doubt that Peter Strzok will be the only formeragent.

    • The FBI leadership has hidden all evidence against its own agents for 4 years already, there is no reason to believe they will do ANYTHING to find wrong-doing. A “training video” will do NOTHING!

    • There is every reason to believe the FBI cannot investigate itself. It was complicit with the White House and CIA in covering up the evidence of their involvement in the murder of Pres. Kennedy. If it can do that—and it did—it can do anything.

    • The FBI and the Democrat Department of Retribution and attack AKA the Justice Department are both corrupt to the core.
