(National Sentinel)Â Dirty: Day by day we’re not only how corrupt the Obama administration really was, but how easy it became to turn career federal law enforcement officials into third-rate political hacks worthy of a banana republic.
Simply because they didn’t like a man who decided to leave his billion-dollar business life to serve his country wanted to be president.
According to investigative journalist Paul Sperry,Â corrupt copsÂ James Comey and Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s two most senior officials, allowed then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates to set up POTUS Trump’s first national security advisor, Michael Flynn — whom FBI officials and even Comey would testifyÂ did not lie to them during questioning.
More than that, however, Sperry notes that because Flynn was no longer under active investigation,Â there’s no possible way Trump could have obstructed justice in asking Comey to ‘go easy’ on his top security advisor.
You may recall that on May 11 Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein noting that Comey has testified under oath that the bureau did not believe Flynn was lying to them.
In the letter, Grassley also noted that FBI agent Joe Pientka accompanied Peter Strzok on Jan. 24, 2017, to interview Flynn ambush-style, in order to take him out. Investigative journalist Sara A. Carter was all over that request.
Flynn was fired by POTUS Trump Feb. 13, 2017; actually, he was forced out.
Now, Sperry reports that Yates, with the approval of Comey and McCabe, used Strzok’s 302 summary report of the Flynn interrogation to brief the White House counsel and bait the administration into firing him.
But if that’s true, thenÂ there’s no way Trump could have “obstructed”Â any investigation — because there wasn’t one at that point into Flynn.
It hadÂ been dropped. FlynnÂ had been cleared already.
Sperry tweeted: “BREAKING: McCabe & Comey cleared Sally Yates to use Strzok’s 302 summary of interview with Gen. Flynn to brief WH counsel & pressure Flynn’s firing, because Flynn was no longer under active investigation. Trump could not have ‘obstructed’ an investigation that was no longer open.”

Was the original 302 altered — by McCabe?
Investigative journalist Mike Cernovich has said as much.
And another thing: Fired McCabeÂ is now seeking immunity (from prosecution) ahead of a congressional hearing on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton classified email case.
That hearing is timed for the release — finally — of DoJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s long-awaited investigation report into the same topic.
It’s expected to name names, and it sure sounds now likeÂ McCabe — who’s already been referred to DoJ for criminal prosecution for lying — will be one of them.
