1. Flynn & Kislyak talked on the phone
2. The subject of the talk was the newly imposed Russian sanctions
When Flynn called Kislyak, the calls on unsecured phones were being monitored, recorded, and transcribed.
The FBI looked at this very same intelligence report that the leaker leaked to Ignatius. Here's what the FBI concluded after reading that SAME intel report:
I'll tell you.
Not only would Ignatius know the leaker has to know how the sanctions were discussed, he had to know he was being used to start a narrative placing Flynn under suspicion of a crime.
Ignatius then starts discussing THE LOGAN ACT.
His BS detector should've gone off.
He knows these phone communications with Russian diplomats are monitored.
It's very likely the questions Strzok was asking Flynn tipped the General off to the fact Strzok had an agenda. And it wasn't a nice agenda.
"Did Trump order or direct you to make a deal on getting the sanctions lifted?"
If Strzok's questions aligned with the narrative of the LEAKER from Ignatius' January 12th column, Flynn would be VERY ALARMED.
Some VERY HIGHLY PLACED people inside the gov't just tried to launch a false narrative to place him under suspicion of having committed a crime.
As an FBI counterintelligence agent, Strzok would know this. And Stzok SHOULD know that FLYNN knows this.
1) a highly placed US gov't official leaks a fake narrative to a reporter to place Flynn under suspicion of a crime
2) An FBI agent who should know better is acting like Flynn is guilty of this crime.
You have to be WAY up there to see these. We're talking the very top.
Buzzfeed printing the Steele Dossier, taking all the fake Russian collusion allegations against Trump public.
Then Ignatius' column the next day, pointing right at HIM.
Instead, Flynn fell on his sword to protect the President-Elect.
Now it's almost a year later, and a lot has come out. And a lot more is coming out soon.
