Documents: FBI Found No Derogatory Information On Michael Flynn and Ordered the Investigation Into Him to Be Closed.
Then Trump Deranged Political Operative Peter Strzok Ordered the Case Be Reopened to Find Anything.

Necks need to be stretched.

Note that the documents refer to Flynn under the codename "CROSSFIRE RAZOR" or the abbreviated version, "Razor."

Sean Davis at The Federalist:

According to the FBI document, the federal law enforcement agency also asked a redacted agency, likely the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to conduct a similar search of its own records for derogatory information against Flynn, who at the the time was the incoming National Security Adviser for then-President-elect Donald Trump.

"No derogatory information was reported back to the FBI," the memo concluded.

The memo also reported that the FBI used at least one confidential human source, or "CHS" in FBI lingo, to spy on Flynn during its investigation of him. Leads offered by that CHS resulted in "no derogatory information" about Flynn. At the same time, the FBI also "initiated surveillance on a certain Russian subject" to determine whether "there was contact between him and [Flynn]."

"No contact between the two individuals was observed by the surveillance teams," the memo closing the investigation against Flynn stated.

"Following the compilation of the above information, the [Crossfire Hurricane] team determined that [Flynn] was no longer a viable candidate as part of the larger CROSSFIRE HURRICANE umbrella case," the memo continued. "A review of logical [redacted] databases did not yield any information on which to predicate further investigative efforts."

"The FBI is closing this investigation," the memo concluded.

Text messages included in the latest court filings in Flynnís ongoing criminal case show that Peter Strzok, who was fired from the FBI for misconduct, ordered an unnamed associate managing the investigation to not close the Flynn investigation, notwithstanding the fact that the FBI concluded there was no legal or factual basis to continue its investigation of Flynn.

"Hey if you haven't closed RAZOR, donít do so yet," Strzok texted at 2:14 p.m. on January 4, 2017.

"Razor still open," Strzok immediately texted to Lisa Page, a former assistant to fired former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe

More at the link, including imaged of the documents. Strzok admits to Page that he completely "rewrote" the reports, supposedly to preserve "the voice" of the original writer, but more likely to hide the original writer's exoneration of Flynn.

I forget where I saw it, but I read someone either speculating or specu-leaking that this was the moment that Deep State Operative Stephan Halper was paid (with government money) to invent a phony "Russian Dinner" pretext to keep the sham investigation over.

The "CHS" referred to here is probably Halper:

The memo also reported that the FBI used at least one confidential human source, or "CHS" in FBI lingo, to spy on Flynn during its investigation of him.

Trump in the meantime has cooked CNN. He says that Flynn has been "totally exonerated" and was set up by "dirty filthy cops at the head of the FBI."

He urges Jim Acosta and CNN to cover the story and cover it honestly.

Yeah, good luck on that, Drumpf.
