Daily Caller ^ | 05/05/2018 | Chuck Ross

McCabe also described the “conundrum that we faced on their return from the interview is that although [the agents] didn’t detect deception in the statements that he made in the interview … the statements were inconsistent with our understanding of the conversation that he had actually had with the ambassador.'”

Conundrum: "Do we illegally destroy an honorable man's life in an attempt to take down a duly elected president that we hate, or do we allow him to remain as Trump's adviser and risk him exposing our deep-state crimes and control of the country?"

The “understanding” was based on phone calls that were under surveillance through the FISA warrants.

Why Flynn was being investigated is still not clear.

Could have something to do with McCabe's grudge against Flynn for siding with an FBI employee who was charging McCabe with sexual discrimination.

It's been reported that McCabe was in an FBI meeting when the news of Flynn's indictment came in, and McCabe pumped his fist and said, "Yes!"

"understanding of the conversation"....

What the hell does that mean?

It sounds like they were relying on gossip.

IIRC, the President said there was nothing wrong with the conversation.

So it appears they have no ACTUAL conversation.

There was and is no conundrum facing the FBI in the Flynn case because their intent was and REMAINS the impeachment of President Trump. In the case of Flynn, hoping to squeeze him to flip on President Trump. The FBI has chosen SEDITION.

The “inconsistency” could be that Flynn said he talked for 10 minutes and the deep state says 13. I would not plead guilty for that reason. Must have been some other threat.

“Who at the FIB is NOT at least a #NeverTrumper?”

I was recently told by a FReeper that the rank and file were going to take to the streets if Comey didn’t reopen his Hillary email investigation the month before the election.

I laughed out loud, but then I noticed he had no /s tag. Maybe he was drunk.

How does following the rule of law cause a conundrum?

...Which begs the question, from whom/whence comes the agents' understanding of the conversation?

Or was it based on the Wash Po's writer David Ignatius's report- based on an unidentified leaker's allegations about the contents of the calls rather than on actual content? Comey's played that game before, using a press report to justify the snooping before the FISA court.

Flynn initially denied to others in the administration that the conversations involved U.S. sanctions against Russia. But intercepts of Kislyak’s phone calls showed otherwise. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius reported that Flynn and Kislyak indeed discussed sanctions. Ignatius’s leaker was a U.S. government official who has yet to be identified.

Why Flynn was being investigated is still not clear. A former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn had accepted a paid appearance at a gala hosted in Moscow in Dec. 2015 by RT, the Kremlin-controlled news agency. Flynn sat next to Russian president Vladimir Putin at the event.

Why is it that the press never mentions who else was sitting at the same table? Jill Stein and VIPS' Ray McGovern. McGovern's VIPS is the group that were in on the Joe Wilson Niger yellowcake affair and framing Scooter Libby.

Apparently, if you have ever talked to a Russian, Mueller thinks he can send agents to point guns at you and take your computers.

Sessions should get the fey Wray to break into Peter
Struck/Strok’s busy days at the FIB HR to do an all-hands survey to get a headcount on who’s For the Putsch, Against, and “Waiting to see who wins”.
