Chaffetz Calls Out FBI in Flynn Case

Chaffetz Calls Out FBI in Flynn Case

(WatchDogNews.org) – Earlier this week, Americans learned just how bad the FBI’s Russia witch hunt was. Sadly, it seems they didn’t care who the government entity hurt. Recently released notes show the law enforcement organization really had it out for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Now, a previously high-ranking Republican is speaking out.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently handed over a number of documents to Flynn’s legal team. Among the papers were notes written by an FBI official during a meeting about the former national security adviser. Bill Priestap, the agency’s former head of counterintelligence, wrote an account of a meeting between himself, then-FBI Director James Comey, and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Priestap’s notes suggest FBI agents were going to interview Flynn and try to get him to lie, get fired, or be prosecuted.

During an appearance on Fox News, former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz called the alleged plan an “ambush” and said, “it’s just disgusting.” The former Republican lawmaker expressed similar outrage on Twitter.

Chaffetz is correct. The entire scheme was outrageous and infuriating. Americans expect the FBI to be above reproach. To find out they were actively seeking ways to put a retired three-star general in prison is so beyond the pale.
