JUST IN: New BOMBSHELL Evidence PROVES That Michael Flynn Was SET UP By FBI Director


Memos have been discovered showing that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may have been targeted by the now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe due to Flynn’s intervention in an agent sexual discrimination case against McCabe and other top officials. This is according to documents and interviews uncovered by Circa News.

This may be why Flynn was targeted for the Russia investigation nearly two years after the the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counter-terrorism agent.


Flynn’s intervention in the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) case on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual in and of itself. His intervention included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon station, as well as a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case.  He also extended an offer to testify on her behalf making him a hostile witness against McCabe.  McCabe was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks at the time.

Flynn’s testimony was so damaging the FBI sought to block Flynn’s support for Agent Gritz, in May of 2014 they sought a federal administrative law judge to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her EEOC case. Two years later the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn in timing that is suspect at best given the EEOC claim is still pending.

McCabe’s own testimony is some of the strongest evidence as to the retaliatory nature of the FBI investigation as he admitted under oath that the FBI opened an internal investigation into Gritz’s personal conduct after learning the agent “had filed or intended to file” a sex discrimination complaint against her supervisors.

McCabe eventually rose in the ranks to became the FBI’s No. 2 executive, emerging as one of the key figures in the FBI’s Russia election tampering investigation, allowing him to be put in a position to impact the criminal inquiry against Flynn.

No less that three separate FBI employees speaking only on condition of anonymity for fear of McCabe’s retaliation have stated that McCabe personally disparaged Flynn’s character during the time the retired Army general emerged as a person of interest regarding the Russia matter.

They did not understand nor know the source of McCabe’s seeming hatred for Flynn but it made them highly uncomfortable as the Russia probe began to unfold and the investigation began to focus on Flynn with almost single minded obsession. One of the employee’s even sought independent counsel.

McCabe was the driving force that eventually led former FBI director James Comey to make the decision to pursue the Russian investigation. Concerns became even more pronounced when Flynn’s highly classified conversation to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak was unmasked and leaked to the news media prompting Flynn’s resignation as Trump’s top security adviser.

One FBI employee stated very clearly after noting the very specific contents of the leaked conversation that was known to only a handful of government officials –

“The Flynn leaks were nothing short of political targeted to take him out.”

The probe on Flynn eventually broadened to include questions regarding whether he properly disclosed foreign payments affecting his security clearance. McCabe has refused to recuse himself from the Flynn investigation in any aspect despite his conflict of interest regarding the ongoing EEOC case. Considering his level of conflict? It would be considered an ethical obligation on McCabe’s part for him to recuse himself in the Flynn probe to avoid the appearance of retribution or bias.

The memos obtained by Circa detail how Flynn and other top officials came to intervene Gritz’s EEOC case.  Gritz was considered an exemplary agent rising over two decades to supervisory special agent inside the FBI on the strength of her counter-terrorism work.

She worked for nearly a decade within the intelligence community successfully tracking down global terrorists and rescuing Western hostages.  She was even occasionally called upon to personally brief then-Director Robert Mueller on sensitive cases like the disappearance of a retired agent Robert Levinson inside Iran.

Yet her career took a sudden nose dive when she went to work under McCabe and his leadership team in 2012.  This was the first negative rating after years of outstanding performance reviews.  She filed and EEOC complaint inside the FBI against a handful of bureau executives in 2012 with allegations her career was being sabotaged by sexual discrimination.

The FBI in return retaliated referring her for Office of Professional Responsibility investigation due to time card irregularities. Emails and testimony show FBI officials castigating Gritz for being overly “emotional” potential mental illness, sending inappropriate emails. The FBI investigated itself and concluded there was no discrimination based on Gritz referral to the OPR investigation regarding her time card before she ever filed her EEOC complaint.

However, McCabe’s sworn testimony gives evidence in support of Gritz’s claim of retaliation and discrimination.  McCabe speaks of a 6/19/12 conversation where he authorized the investigation of Gritz after one of his deputies told him Gritz was about to file the EEOC complaint.

McCabe’s testimony reads –

“I first learned of the issues that led to Ms. Gritz’s current OPR investigation during a telephone call with Deputy Assistant Director (DAD) Jennifer Ley on June 19, 2012.

I recalled that during the course of our conversation DAD Ley mentioned to me that Ms. Gritz had filed or intended to file an EEOC complaint against her immediate supervisor.

The investigation was initiated by the FBI the very next day against Gritz. Her formal EEOC complaint followed a few weeks later. Gritz chose to resign from the FBI in 2013 with her case becoming the poster child for a National Public Radio story on the FBI’s allegedly hostile environment for women agents in 2015.

According to Circa

In 2014, Gritz amended her EEOC complaint to specifically name McCabe, alleging she suffered “a hostile environment, defamation of character through continued targeting by Andrew McCabe in official documents, and continuous patterns and instances of severe and excessive hostile behavior/attitude toward complainant. These actions have a negative impact on the complainant, professionally, financially, and personally.”

Flynn’s intervention in the case occurred around the time that McCabe’s name was added to the complaint. Flynn’s first act was to write a letter of support in her case.

“SSA Gritz was well-known, liked and respected in the military counter-terrorism community for her energy, commitment and professional capacity, and over the years worked in several interagency groups on counter-terrorism targeting initiatives,” Flynn wrote May 9, 2014.

At the time, Flynn was an Army lieutenant general and the chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and he put his letter on official agency stationary to be submitted in Gritz’s case.

As soon as Gritz revealed to the FBI that Flynn and other top federal figures had written letters to support her case and likely would be called as witnesses, the bureau dispatched a lawyer to try to block the evidence from being included in the EEO case, documents show.

The FBI “has reviewed the letters submitted by the Complainant and objects to their inclusion in the record,” the bureau’s lawyer wrote. “They are self-serving letters, not part of any personnel file nor contemporaneous generated during the period of Ms. Gritz’s employment with the FBI, and which she has unilaterally solicited and obtained. They should be excluded.”

While the FBI argued Gritz’s had become under performing, tardy to work, insurbordinate, possibly mentally ill or emotional and deserving of a poor performance review, Flynn argued just the opposite, saying he saw the agent excel while working with the DIA and other intelligence community agencies.

“Her work consistently made a positive difference,” Flynn wrote. “.Her tenacity and personal commitment consistently produced outstanding results in the most challenging environments.”

Flynn went further, offering an interview in 2015 with NPR in which he called Gritz one of the “bright lights and shining stars” in the intelligence community who “just kinda got it when it came to the kind of enemy that we were facing and the relationship that was necessary between law enforcement and the military.”

Flynn wasn’t alone among top officials who came to Gritz’s defense in her battle against the FBI.

“SSA Gritz was without question, the most energetic, most consistently engaged and prepared and single most effective member of this interagency group,” wrote Navy Rear Admiral B. L. Losey, who served both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama as the White House’s National Security Council Director for Combatting Terrorism.

Losey offered a most poignant endorsement of the female agent. “If I were taken hostage, I would hope that above all others SSA Robyn Gritz were assigned the task to track and recover me,” he wrote.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley also afforded Gritz support, asking federal authorities to investigate whether her case was emblematic of a hostile workplace for women inside the FBI.

In a brief interview this weekend, Gritz said she was mortified to think that her request to Flynn to help with her EEOC case in any way affected his relationship with the FBI or his current status as someone under investigation in the Russia case.

“Flynn was the first leader to defend me,” said Gritz. “He forwarded a letter to the FBI and I personally think that Comey did not receive it. McCabe knew Flynn and I were friends. I felt that from the beginning it was an issue.”
