Michael Flynn case

Original Article

Posted By: Ida Lou Pino, 5/22/2020 5:22:20 PM

The FBI announced Friday that Director Chris Wray has ordered an internal review of the handling of the bureau’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, which will include examining whether current FBI employees "engaged in misconduct." “FBI Director Christopher Wray today ordered the Bureau’s Inspection Division to conduct an after-action review of the Michael Flynn investigation,” the bureau said in a statement. The review will be handled by the bureau’s Inspection Division, the FBI said. That division is similar to an internal affairs office in a police department.

This Is IT! What we've all been waiting for! Fey Wray just learned that Gen. Flynn has been investigated. But don't worry - - Fey is taking care of everything - - the FBI will investigate itself! Wow! Wow, Wow, Wow!

It's fine. Self investigations always work out well - for the party being investigated. They still haven't figured out that we aren't stupid but we certainly are patient.

Yup, that's Wray's reaction to everything, investigate, recommend, change procedures but take no real action against any FBI person who did anything wrong. The FBI will never get its reputation back until this milktoast is fired/gone.

what good will it do to have a corrupt agency investigate itself ? The facts are clear with the small amount of info that is out of hiding. All management staff involved in these criminal acts need to be terminated and prosecuted. Replace them with the real FBI line agents that have actually done law enforcement work, and who have integrity.

I would love to see faye wray dumped, and Grenell handed an axe (or a flamethrower) and the acting director slot, until a junkyard dog in sheep's clothing could be put up for confirmation in the senate. The pucker factor on the hill, as well as within the federal bureau of intimidation, would be on high, and deservedly so.

Funny how this happens only after Flynn's case became a political hot potato. I don't know whether Wray is just an ordinary CYA bureaucrat or part of the Dark Side. But in neither case is he fit to run the FBI in these times. My guess is that Trump would like to fire him, but knows he couldn't get a worthwhile replacement confirmed at this point - too many timid Republicans too close to election day.

They should all remember that Durham already has an on-going investigation, so any slow-rolling, or contrary information might get more into their own trouble. It's a very specific case, and shouldn't take too long. He would be wise to simply bring in Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch to get them up-to-speed.

Let ambassador Grenell handle this 'internal review' and start with the lying magnolia Wray and check what he has hidden in his secret safe!! The FBI needs a thorough going over or it will never, ever be taken seriously. So far we have seen a parade of never ending clowns. It needs to change or it's done. Wray is over, now or in a few weeks, so he will attempt to hide everything and everyone he can. He hopes that they will remember this after he is out, it's only a matter of brief time!

FINALLY, the deep state walls are collapsing under the tsunami of truth. This can't be brushed off as an IG pointing out bureaucratic paperwork errors. This was a criminal conspiracy by people in the FBI. Durham is going to say this soon and Wray, a day late and a dollar short, is trying to get ahead of the wave. But to what is potentially coming, this could be like the waves at the beach compared to 50 foot rollers in a hurricane. Flynn was one man being railroaded by a vindictive president. The FBI was trying to unseat a president and overturn an election with that same president's knowledge and approval. It has roiled the Country for 4 years and continues today. Do you think Wray will be able to find and admit to THAT?

I am currently reading Licensed to Lie by Sidney Powell (Flynn's lawyer). It is so depressing to know how corrupt the FBI and DOJ have been for at least the last 20 years, probably longer. Knowing their history, the statement that the FBI will look into their own illegal acts is laughable and insulting! Wray would have already looked into this if he cared about justice. Nobody cares to hear the apology after working like a dog to prove illegal and unethical actions by a government agency with the power to ruin lives.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam drew criticism Saturday after he was captured on social media photos without a mask while mingling with constituents on a beach. The episode at Virginia Beach came one day after Northam reportedly began contemplating a mandatory mask rule for Commonwealth citizens when it reopens from the pandemic. The order would require masks in indoor settings. "Virginia Gov Northam on the Virginia Beach boardwalk; no mask, no social distancing," one citizen tweeted. Another complained: "Liberals consistently send a message of 'Do as I say, not as I do.'"

Residents of the American south are bracing for the emergence of a new brood of 17-year cicadas, the exceedingly noisy insects that fill the summer air with their loud mating calls nearly every two decades. Southerners may soon be treated to "a cacophonous whining like a field of out-of-tune car radios," Virginia Tech announced this week. The bugs live in underground burrows, slowly maturing over their 17-year life cycle, before emerging for about a month to mate, after which they quickly die. The relatively brief adult life of the cicadas is nevertheless notable from the outsized noise levels they generate over the course of about four weeks.

Stay-home orders that extend too long could cause the U.S. “irreparable damage,” Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Friday. Strict crackdowns on large gatherings and other orders, such as for home quarantines, were needed when the coronavirus first hit the nation, but those rules can now begin to be lifted in many parts of the country, Fauci said during an interview on CNBC. “I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go,” the member of the White House coronavirus task force said.
Harvard Prof. Blames Christianity’s ‘Malignant’
Belief in Afterlife for Lockdown Protests

Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker said Thursday that the push for reopening society from lockdowns comes from Christianity’s “malignant delusion” of belief in an afterlife. Atheists who believe in this life alone are more concerned with health and safety, Professor Pinker suggested in a Tweet, while Christians tend to devalue “actual lives” and live a riskier existence. Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier.

That's not my attempt to politicize it. It's my attempt to depoliticize it. So don't criticize the state for following the president's policy." The governor's office said New York's original nursing home policy was in line with a March 13 directive
