Trump on Flynn Guilty Plea: 'No Collusion'

03 December, 2017, 00:40 | Author: Samuel Sharp
  • The FBI fired back at President Trump's comments against the Bureau on Sunday

The agent, Peter Strzok, is considered one of the most experienced and trusted FBI counterintelligence investigators.

A plea agreement suggests that Flynn provided information to prosecutors beneficial to Mueller's investigation.

Separately, a Justice Department spokeswoman said, "we are aware of the allegations and are taking any and all appropriate steps". The FBI was not immediately available for comment.

Page reportedly left Mueller's team in July and no longer works with McCabe, while Strzok was removed from Mueller's team in August and subsequently reassigned to the FBI's HR department in an apparent demotion. That senior official is also not identified in court records, but people familiar with the matter told The Post that it is K.T. McFarland, now a nominee for USA ambassador to Singapore.

Flynn is cooperating with Mueller's team, according to court papers.

President Donald Trump fired Comey last May, two months after he allegedly asked Comey to end the investigation of Flynn.

The Times reported "Strzok and a colleague reacted to news events, like presidential debates, in ways that could appear critical of Mr. Trump".

Speaking Saturday about Flynn's plea deal, the president reiterated that there had been no coordination between his campaign and Russian Federation. The New York Times and Washington Post report that the agent, Peter Strzok, as the FBI's deputy head of counterintelligence, played a major role in the investigations into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as well as the possible links between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. Trump had previously advocated for Flynn, even urging then-FBI Director James Comey to be lenient with him, according to testimony Comey gave after Trump fired him.

"These new Federal Bureau of Investigation documents show the Federal Bureau of Investigation was more concerned about a whistleblower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself", Fitton said in a statement.

This was his inaugural-and as of press time, only-post on Instagram.

The existence of the text messages was brought to the attention of Mueller's office by the inspector general's office, which has been conducting a wide-ranging investigation of the FBI's handling of the Clinton email case. "The OIG has been reviewing allegations involving communications between certain individuals, and will report its findings regarding those allegations promptly upon completion of the review of them", the inspector general's office said in a statement provided to NPR.
