  • FBI's top lawyer, Dana Boente, ousted amid Fox News criticism for role in Flynn investigation

    NBC News ^ | May 30, 2020 | Julia Ainsley and Pete Williams
    After a 38-year career with the Justice Department, the FBI's top lawyer Dana Boente was asked to resign on Friday. Two sources familiar with the decision to dismiss Boente said it came from high levels of the Justice Department rather than directly from FBI Director Christopher Wray. His departure comes on the heels of recent criticism by Fox News for his role in the investigation of former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. A spokesman for the FBI confirmed to NBC News that Boente did in fact resign on Friday...

    Fox News ^ | May 29, 2020 | Gregg Jarrett
    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is a master of prevarication and deflection. He holds an M.S. in BS and a Ph.D. in vacuous excuses. He’s a professor emeritus of duplicity and deception. As a prodigious suck-up, he’s the Eddie Haskell of lawyers. We can expect Rosenstein’s skill set to be on full display Wednesday when he finally and belatedly appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee as its first witness in an investigation into the origins and evolution of the fallacious Trump-Russia collusion probe. During his ignominious tenure at the Justice Department, Rosenstein was at the center of the Russia...

    Whitaker describes this as the “obstruction of justice trap.” Essentially, this approach confirms the second-prong purpose of the Mueller investigation itself. First, use the special counsel in 2017, 2018 and into the beginning of 2019, as a shield (hide information); and secondly a weapon (threats) against any entity who would reveal the background intelligence that undercut the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. We know President Trump was threatened by Rod Rosenstein not to declassify any information in September of 2018 or the Mueller investigation would use that act as evidence of obstruction. Whitaker confirms that same approach was applied toward any executive...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is charged with providing material support to the Islamic State extremist group, including attempting to buy multiple weapons and scouting potential targets for an attack in the Tampa Bay area, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. A criminal complaint charges Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari, a 23-year-old U.S. citizen, with attempting to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization. The charge carries a potential 20-year prison term. **SNIP** According to the affidavit, Al-Azhari scouted a number of targets in the Tampa Bay region, including beaches, parks and even the Tampa FBI field...

    A bill to reauthorize three expired surveillance programs is in jeopardy, with President Trump urging Republicans to oppose it and growing concerns from progressives on a key amendment. House Democratic leaders say they still intend to vote on the measure this week, but it’s suddenly unclear if it can muster the 218 votes needed to clear the chamber — despite an earlier version of the bill winning 278 votes in March. Despite the limbo status, Democratic leadership is signaling they will move forward, setting up a showdown on the House floor over the fate of the bill. An update from...

    The Justice Department said on Wednesday that it opposes House-proposed changes to surveillance reform legislation and will urge President Trump to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. The statement, from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, is the latest setback for the legislation, which is currently scheduled to get a vote on the House floor on Wednesday, after Trump on Tuesday night urged GOP opposition to vote against it. The veto threat from the Justice Department is a marked shift from March, when Attorney General William Barr helped negotiate the initial version of the bill with House leadership. The...

    Agents fretted sharing Flynn intel with departing Obama White House would become fodder for ‘partisan axes to grind.’ Just 17 days before President Trump took office in January 2017, then-FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok texted bureau lawyer Lisa Page, his mistress, to express concern about sharing sensitive Russia probe evidence with the departing Obama White House. Strzok had just engaged in a conversation with his boss, then-FBI Assistant Director William Priestap, about evidence from the investigation of incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, codenamed Crossfire Razor, or “CR” for short. The evidence in question were so-called "tech cuts" from intercepted...

  • Why the FBI doesn't record interviews

    The Hill ^ | 05 26 2020 | James M. Casey
    The FBI’s interview of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn about his telephone conversations with Russian Ambassador Kislyak renewed a frequent question: Why doesn’t the FBI record its interviews? After all, if a recording of Flynn’s January 2017 interview were available, and not just a heavily redacted form FD-302, there might not be such controversy about whether Flynn lied to agents about the conversation. Despite the fact that recorded interviews can be helpful, there are good reasons the FBI does not record all interviews — even though a 2014 Department of Justice policy states they should default toward recordings....

    Professing himself "disturbed" by the unexpected turn in the Flynn case, FBI Director Christopher Wray has ordered an internal review. "It is particularly concerning that the confidentiality of our methods has been compromised," Wray observed. "If the Agency's files can be so easily exposed to scrutiny we need to consider whether any records should be kept going forward. Our effectiveness will be blunted if unauthorized people can pierce the veil of secrecy that is vital to keeping the government safe from the type of oppositional defiant disorder exhibited by persons like Donald Trump and his deplorable supporters." Wray brushed aside...

    The Michael Flynn case has gone off the hinges. In reality, there is no case. The Department of Justice has filed a motion to dismiss the case against the former national security adviser after new documents showed a large-scale plot from within the FBI to entrap Flynn despite a lack of evidence concerning Russian collusion. Remember, Flynn made some phone calls to the Russians which made him a target. These weren’t pernicious calls.This was standard operating procedure for any incoming administration. Yet, James Comey wanted to get Flynn at all costs.  No one has opposed the motion to dismiss. The...

    After new documents showed that ex-Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was the victim of an FBI entrapment plot, the Department of Justice has filed a motion to dismiss the case. It details a sordid history of overreach and prosecutorial misconduct at the direction of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and other top officials at the FBI. Flynn was forced to plead guilty to bogus “lying to the FBI” charges as a result. Flynn was targeted over his phone call with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, though the entire FBI counterintelligence probe into collusion was based on a debunked and unverified...
