[Ed. – With the knowledge of the full timeline we now have under our belts, it’s unbelievable how casually the FBI personnel discussed what they all knew was a witch hunt against Michael Flynn. There are too many passages to highlight here, but one stand-out is an exchange on 10 January 2017 about some agents having just taken out professional liability insurance. That date fell between 5 January, when Peter Strzok directed his shop to keep Crossfire Razor open – in spite of the complete lack of basis or evidence for it as an “investigation” – and 12 January, when David Ignatius published the felony leak on the Flynn-Kislyak phone calls at the Washington Post. More on this, probably this weekend.]
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.
[T]he legal filing from Powell, quoting communications from the Department of Justice (DOJ), states that the latest document production included handwritten notes and texts from Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and FBI analysts who worked on the FBI’s investigation of Flynn.
