Jim Jordan goes off on FBI's Wray over Flynn revelations: 'Why didn't we learn this from him?’

One of the biggest injustices throughout the “Spygate” coup attempt against President Donald Trump — and there have been many — has been the silence of Christopher Wray, who was selected to replace the very compromised James Comey as FBI director.
Since Wray has held his post, we’ve heard almost nothing from him regarding what he’s done to correct the massive abuses of power, the law, and the FISA court known to have occurred within his agency over the past three-plus years in the deep state’s attempt to “get” the president and drive him from office.
Now, we learn that retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who, as the president’s first national security adviser, became the administration’s first Spygate casualty, was set up by Comey’s agents — yet, we haven’t heard a peep about any of this from Wray, who had to have known about this development for some time.
And Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wants to know why.
“The FBI in 2016 spies on two American citizens associated with the Trump campaign,” he said as he began to outline the abuses of power witnessed over the past four years,” Jordan told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” morning show Thursday.
“For one of the citizens, they go to the FISA court, they take the now-famous dossier they knew was salacious and unjustified, they use that as the basis to spy one of these individuals. They don’t tell the court that the dossier is Russian disinformation … it was paid for by the Clinton campaign … [and] the guy who wrote it, Christopher Steele, had already told the Justice Department he was desperate to stop Trump,” he added.
“And now we learn that they set up the General Mike Flynn just days into the administration,” Jordan said.
“What I want to know is why didn’t Bob Mueller tell us this? Remember we were told… this is the greatest guy who ever came to Washington. This is the greatest thing since sliced bread. He’s the most honest guy since George Washington,” he continued.
“Why didn’t he tell us this and more importantly, where’s Christopher Wray? Why didn’t we learn any of this from him?”
Jordan then praised former U.S. attorney-turned-whistleblower Sidney Powell, Flynn’s attorney, for her perseverance and digging to clear her client of an obvious frame job.
“Thank goodness for Sidney Powell or Bill Barr or we would have never got this information… Again why didn’t we hear this from Chris Wray? Again if they can do this to a three star general, if they can do this to the President of the United States, imagine what they can do to you and me?” Jordan noted.
Twitter sleuth and attorney “Techno Fog” posted a copy of handwritten notes from FBI agents who interviewed Flynn initially in January 2017, during the Trump Team transition.
As the tweet states, it’s obvious from the notes that the agents’ job was to either catch Flynn in a lie or get him to “admit” he violated the eighteenth century Logan Act, which has never been utilized, with the end goal being to get him prosecuted.
One of the agents reported to have interviewed Flynn is Peter Strzok, who we know was involved in the hoax “Crossfire Hurricane” counterintelligence probe from the outset. Also, as reports have noted, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe advised Flynn not to have legal counsel with him when he was interviewed. And it is obvious from the accompanying email that Strzok and McCabe colluded to entrap Flynn.
But the bottom line is, as Jordan notes: Why wasn’t any of this revealed already by the current FBI director? Did Wray not feel any obligation at all to inform members of Congress — or the president?
And how long was Wray willing to wait — until Flynn was actually sentenced? Or, as Jordan implies, was Wray ever going to say anything about what his bureau did to one of the president’s most loyal officials?
Heads should roll over this. Not slaps on the wrist or ‘firings.’ True-blue bona fide prosecutions. Because if that doesn’t doesn’t occur, some other president the deep state ‘disapproves of’ will be targeted in the future. And maybe the deep state wins then.
