(National Sentinel)Â Whistleblower: About two weeks ago ace investigative journalist Sara A. Carter reported the name of the second FBI agent who interviewed former Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s first national security advisor.
Carter reported that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa
sent the letter to Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray Friday requesting a slew of documentation pertaining to Flynnâ€™s case. He noted that on Feb. 15, 2017, a bipartisan group of members from his committee had requested a copy of the intercepted classified phone transcript between Flynn and former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and due to an ongoing investigation the DOJ and FBI denied the committeeâ€™s request. Flynn was fired by President Trump in February 2017 for apparently not being forthright with Vice President Mike Pence about his conversation with Kislyak.
He’s seeking all information related to the interview of Flynn by FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka. It was the first time Pientka’s name had been mentioned in media reports as being in on the Flynn interview.
In his letter, Grassley demanded that Pientka be made available for an interview.
Accordingly, no later than May 25, 2018, please provide:
1. The information requested in our February 15, 2017 letter, including the transcripts of the
reportedly intercepted calls and any FBI reports summarizing them; and
2. The FBI agentsâ€™ 302s memorializing their interview of Flynn and 1A supporting docs,
including the agentsâ€™ notes.
In addition, please makeÂ Special Agent Joe PientkaÂ available for a transcribed interview
with Committee staff no later than one week following the production of the requested
Why would Grassley request that Pientka sit for aÂ recorded and transcribed interview?
Former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova provides the answer: Because Pientka is ready to testify against former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and Strzok for malfeasance in their alleged entrapment of Flynn.
“Chairman Grassley quite properly wants to see the underlying 302 forms of the FBI agents who did the interview,Â the ambush interview of Flynn, at the White House during the transition period rather shortly after the inauguration,” he says in a recent interview.
“Itâ€™s pretty obvious that Comey and McCabe got together and decided they wanted to frame Flynn because they believed, they believed, believe it or not, that he was a danger to the Constitution, not them,” he added.
“He was a danger, when all he was doing was communicating with people that he had a legitimate right to communicate with, both as a candidate Foreign Policy Advisor, and as the National Security Advisor Designate, and as a National Security Advisor,” said diGenova.
“So Grassley wants to see the notes of these people and he wants to interview the one agent who was there who was very, very, very serious about how Flynn did not deceive.Â That agent that he wants to interview is the agent who went to the Inspector General and complained about the conduct of Strzok and McCabe,” he noted.
