(National Sentinel)Â Vindication:Â The walls are closing in on the Deep State that conspired against President Donald Trump.
Investigative journalist Sara A. Carter reports thatÂ Joe Pientka, the FBI agent who accompanied Peter Strzok when they interviewed former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, is set to testify that he never believed Flynn lied to agents.
That is, if he’s issued a subpoena.
Carter reports that Pientka would say Flynn was very forthcoming with FBI agents regarding specific information the former Defense Intelligence Agency director would not have known investigators were already aware of. That, she notes, would provide more insight into Flynn’s truthfulness and willingness to be honest with investigators.
FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka, if subpoenaed, will provide testimony regarding the circumstances surrounding his interview with former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, sources with knowledge have been telling this reporter for more than a year.
Itâ€™s this reporter’s understanding that Pientka will account for what Flynn said in the interview and will give context to the FBIâ€™s accusation that he lied during the interview. Â If asked, Pientka will also give his personal opinion as to whether or not that was actually the case. He will also discuss how forthcoming Flynn was about very specific sensitive information that Flynn could not have possibly known the investigators already knew, which may give additional insight into Flynnâ€™s veracity and willingness to tell the truth.
Pientka, however, will only testify about the circumstances regarding the Flynn interview and the issues that pertain to that interview, according to two sources with knowledge. There is no reason to believe that Pientka has any information on [former FBI Director James] Comeyâ€™s role in the Trump Russia investigations but wants the opportunity to â€œstate the truthâ€ what has been said about Flynn, said the source, with direct knowledge.
Earlier this month Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, sent a letter to the Justice Department and FBI demanding all information regarding Flynn’s investigation, noting then that Pientka doesn’t believe Flynn was dishonest with agents.
Grassley noted in the letter that Comey testified to Congress that the agents did not believe Flynn had lied to them.
Grassleyâ€™s demands reveal, “for the first time, the name of theÂ second FBI agent who interviewed FlynnÂ at the White House regarding his conversationâ€ with the former Russian ambassador to the U.S., CarterÂ wrote.
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.
Grassley wantsÂ the transcript of Flynnâ€™s intercepted calls with Kislyak, which occurred in December 2016, and the related 302â€™s by May 25th.
Pientka is not the only FBI agent willing to discuss Deep State corruption during the Obama administration. Reports earlier this week noted that scores of agents are ready to tell their stories to Congress regarding Obama-era corruption.
