    FBI agent fired from Russia probe oversaw Flynn interviews, softened Comey language on Clinton email actions
    Nicole Darrah6 hours ago


    The FBI agent who was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia — because he sent anti-Trump messages to a colleague — oversaw the bureau’s interviews with ousted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Fox News confirmed on Monday.

    Peter Strzok, a former deputy to the assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI, also was confirmed to have changed former FBI Director James Comey’s early draft language about Hillary Clinton’s actions regarding her private email server from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

    The language being edited was important because classified material that’s been mishandled for “gross negligence” calls for criminal consequences, analysts point out.

    MUELLER AIDE FIRED FOR ANTI-TRUMP TEXTS NOW FACING REVIEW FOR ROLE IN CLINTON EMAIL PROBE

    Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about reaching out to Russian officials. Prosecutors said Flynn in December 2016 asked Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergei Kislyak, not to escalate the situation after the outgoing Obama administration imposed sanctions on Russia in retaliation for suspected election interference.

    Flynn left the White House in February after acknowledging that he had given an incomplete account to Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts regarding Russia.

    The wording change came to light last month after newly reported memos to Congress showed that a May 2016 draft of Comey’s statement closing out the email investigation accused the former secretary of state of being “grossly negligent.” A June 2016 draft stated Clinton had been “extremely careless.”

    The modified language was final when Comey announced in July 2016 that Clinton wouldn’t face any charges in the email investigation.

    Strzok is being reviewed by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General for the role he played in the Clinton email investigation.

    A source close to the matter told Fox News that the probe, which will examine Strzok's roles in a number of other politically sensitive cases, should be completed by "very early next year."

    Fox News' Jake Gibson, James Rosen and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    I saw that thread but didn’t read it. I figured this one would deserve stand-alone status. Is it the same story?

    THIS IS BIG--- Former Judge: If General Flynn Was Not Aware Strzok Was Removed for Bias - Case Can Be Dismissed Due to Giglio Violation

    Former Judge: If General Flynn Was Not Aware Strzok Was Removed for Bias – Case Can Be Dismissed Due to Giglio Violation
    December 5, 2017 by Jim Hoft

    Glenn runs the wildly popular Instapundit website at PJ Media and has an enormous following.

    This afternoon Glenn Reynolds posted this comment from a former judge and reader on the General Michael Flynn arrest and plea deal.

    Glenn believes this was a flawed investigation because General Michael Flynn was not notified that the main witness against him was removed from the investigation for bias. If General Flynn was not aware of this it is Giglio violation.

    Via Instapundit:

    A READER WHO IS A FORMER PROSECUTOR AND JUDGE EMAILS:

    Did the prosecution tell Flynn’s lawyer that their main witness against him was removed for bias? Since Strzok led the interview and his testimony would be needed to establish untruthfulness, he is a critical witness not just a prosecutor. If not disclosed, would this not be a Giglio violation? This is the kind of misconduct that can get a case dismissed and a lawyer disbarred. It is a Constitutional violation. This has bothered me since I heard about it.

    Me too.

    The Giglio versus United States case: is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the prosecution’s failure to inform the jury that a witness had been promised not to be prosecuted in exchange for his testimony was a failure to fulfill the duty to present all material evidence to the jury, and constituted a violation of due process, requiring a new trial.
