Skip to comments.Strzok’s newly discovered FBI notes deliver jolt to ‘Obamagate’ evidence
Posted on 06/24/2020 6:11:00 PM PDT by Hojczyk
Investigators will need to secure testimony from Strzok, fired two years ago from the FBI, to be certain of the exact meaning and intent of his one paragraph of notes, which were made public in court on Wednesday.
But they appear to illuminate an extraordinary high-level effort by outgoing Obama-era officials during the first weekend of January to find a way to sustain a counterintelligence investigation of Flynn in the absence of any evidence of wrongdoing.
The Justice Department says the notes were written between Jan. 3-5, 2017, the very weekend the FBI agent who had investigated Flynns ties to Russia for five months recommended the case be closed because there was no derogatory evidence that he committed a crime or posed a counterintelligence threat. FBI supervisors overruled the agent's recommendation.
Strzoks notes appear to quote then-FBI Director James Comey as suggesting that Flynns intercepted calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak appear legit, bolstering other recently disclosed evidence showing the bureau saw nothing wrong with Flynns behavior.
The notes also suggest Biden who once claimed he had no knowledge of the Flynn probe raised the issue of the Logan Act, an obscure, centuries-old law, as a possible avenue for continuing to investigate Flynn.
And Strzok appears to quote Obama as suggesting the FBI assign the right people to pursue the case.

We're all being played.
The right people.
Why would a president have to say that? Was he under the impression that the FBI doesn’t put the right people on cases?
Flynn didn't get into trouble for making the call. He got in trouble for lying about it.
What did Biden know and when did he forget it?
Please provide contemporaneous evidence that he lied. The FBI claims the original FD-302s, where it is said they did not believe he lied, are missing. Only the altered FD-302s have been located, including alterations to Pientka’s FD-302 without his involvement (reportedly).
Flynn got in trouble because the FBI *CLAIMED* he lied.
We’ve been played since Usurpation Day.
Obama was never eligible.
He is not a natural born citizen.
You're either willfully ignorant or lying. Care to discuss?
He should be tried, convicted and executed...race riots that follow be damned.
Flynn was charged and pled guilty to lying to the FBI.
Flynn was fired by Trump for lying.
I haven't heard anyone on Flynn's team say he didn't lie, only that he was set up.
As regards my previous post what am I getting wrong?
How can you say that? They will all be in jail in a few years, no really they will, read it right here daily.
Obama's Jan. 5, 2017 WH meeting with his various flunkies, including Joe Biden, is being showcased as evidence of Obama's villainous activities to "get Trump." Obama was paranoid about protecting his "scandal-free" administration. The shocking details of a criminal president flow from an unusual email to herself in which Susan Rice (to be replaced by Gen Flynn) revealed significant details about the evil cabal.....all of it written on Trump's inauguration day.
RICE BEGINS BY EXPOSING THE FRAMEWORK OF THE EVILNESS: Pres Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia, Rice emailed herself. When Susan Rice stupidly wrote a memo to herself, she inadvertently confessed to a series of crimes that added the time line and inferences about what the outgoing Obama administration illegally concealed from incoming President Trump and his aides.
Obviously their lack of honesty was a serious issue.......but flipping off established protocol had serious ramifications. This was a justification memo......outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice needed to explain why there have been multiple false and misleading statements given to the incoming President Tr
NOTE After-the-fact memos are rarely a good idea....they reveal things the author never intendedas did Susan Rice in her now-infamous email to herself on Trumps inauguration day.
BACKSTORY Pres Obamas maneuver of January 3, 2017-his signing of NSA Data-Sharing Order Section 2.3 out of AG Lynchs office is the coupe detat to blow out The Deep State. Obamas original ex/order contains some unusual language particularly the convoluted language WRT The Strategic Delay of Section 2.3 of Obamas Executive Order 12333. BACKSTORY Pres Obamas maneuver of January 3, 2017-his signing of NSA Data-Sharing Order Section 2.3 out of AG Lynchs office is the coupe detat to blow out The Deep State. Obamas original ex/order contains some unusual language particularly the convoluted language WRT The Strategic Delay of Section 2.3 of Obamas Executive Order 12333.
NOTE WELL: Prior to the formal signing of Section 2.3, greater latitude ALREADY existed within the White House in regards to collection of information especially in relation to the Trump Campaign. However, once signed, Section 2.3 granted broad latitude to inter-agency sharing of information.
But by the time Obamas new executive order was signed on January 3, 2017, all that information was already in the possession of Obama White House. Thus, Susan Rices January 20, 2017 email to herself takes on an even greater significance b/c no one was ever supposed to know about the REAL meaning of Obamas retroactive actions.....until Rice stupidly laid it all out in an official email.
Suzan skipped down the Yellowbrick Road, along with the mental midgets of the Obama Administraton that notorious day.
Obamas FBI, DOJ, ODNI, CIA and intelligence officials flipped a finger at protocol....and even worse ....they were intentionally dishonest with incoming President Trump and key members of his new administration. ump and all of his officials.
NOTE WELL This is not a CYA memo, this is a justification memo for use AFTER the Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy narrative collapsed; if the impeachment effort failed.
Her intellectually facile By-The-Book reference -refers to both she and then-President Obama being told by CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director Comey, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, that President Trump was the subject of an active counterintelligence investigation to determine if he was under the influence of the Russian government. But they NEVER told candidate Trump about it.
Even the timing of Rices Oz-ish memo, written 15 minutes prior to the end of the Obama administration, is ex-post-facto useful as evidence of the authors intent.......as Suzan stupidly confesses to a host of crimes.What people miss about Susan Rice and her need to write that last memo is her attempt to craft a record of a COUNTER-INTEL operation that was ongoing and that Obama had instructed that everything be done by the book.
What is significant here is that during a counter-intel investigation, it is permissible to lie, or in official terms to disseminate disinformation.
As long as the Obama spying was characterized as a counter-intel operation, it was legal to have words and actions left in place that might be discovered as untrue.
In other words, Rices final memo was an attempt to carve out a last minute get-out-of-jail pass for all those involved in the spying.
Rice likely foresaw that her successor Gen Flynn, and Congressional hearings might uncover false and perjured statements on the part of persons in the spy operation to which the response would be So what? It was a Counter-Intel operation.
This is why it was IMPERATIVE for Barr and Durham to investigate the ORIGINS because if the origins revealed no predicate, no basis, no genuine probable cause for launching a counter-intel operation, then Rices feeble stay-out-of-jail memo would fall apart.
Lying is not a crime unless related to material issue.
He withdrew his plea. Strock noted “he believed he was not lying.”
Fine, but the lie is what he was charged with, not having the call.
He hasn't denied the lie.
I'm not saying he should be in jail, only that pretending he didn't lie is silly.
Do you have the whole sentence that was clipped out of?
Seems the jolt is only on our side cause ALL the mediapukes with the exception of hannity and Lou this nugget has gone literally unnoticed or reported by the mediaVOMITS!! They are circling the wagons cause you know his black!
