FBI Director Orders Bureau to Take Second Look at Original Flynn Investigation

All eyes could soon be back on James Comey.

Despite the best efforts of a meddling judge, it appears as though justice is still in the offing for Mike Flynn.

The highly decorated general and former national security adviser is still somehow in the midst of a legal fight, despite the Department of Justice having dropped the charges against him.  Those charges, of lying to the FBI, have been dubious from the start and a recently declassified series of notes from the FBI investigators themselves seem to indicate that Flynn was purposefully framed.

Now under extreme public pressure over the revelations, FBI Director Christopher Wray is ordering a review of the entire Flynn ordeal.

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.

And this isn’t just lip service, either.

The bureau said the “after-action review” will have a two-fold purpose: evaluating the FBI’s role in the case and determining whether any “current employees engaged in misconduct,” as well as identifying whether any “improvements” might be warranted to FBI procedures.

“Although the FBI does not have the prosecutorial authority to bring a criminal case, the Inspection Division can and will evaluate whether any current onboard employees engaged in actions that might warrant disciplinary measures,” the FBI said.

Flynn’s case has cast serious doubt on the ethical integrity of the FBI under former Director James Comey, and this action by Wray could help expose just how deep into the ObamaGate scandal his predecessor was.
