FBI Director Wray opens internal review into how bureau handled Michael Flynn case

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.

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.

Where is Christopher Wray?' GOP lawmakers say FBI director ignoring them -- and push ahead for key interviews

Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mike Johnson, R-La., on Monday night said FBI Director Christopher Wray "has declined to respond" to their May 4 letter seeking information and interviews with key FBI officials after the bombshell revelations in the Michael Flynn case -- prompting the lawmakers to take matters into their own hands.

"Because Director Wray has declined to respond to our request, we are forced to write to you directly," Jordan and Johnson wrote in an extraordinary letter to FBI agent Joe Pientka, who participated in the unusual January 24, 2017 White House interview that led to Flynn's prosecution for one count of making false statements to the FBI. The lawmakers requested Pientka sit for a transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee.

Jordan and Johnson sent a similar letter on Monday to an attorney for Bill Priestap, the former assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division.

4. Wray is still head of the FBI as a check against Trump, as well as politics

First, while I agree that Wray should be fired (based on what we currently know), politically Trump firing TWO FBI directors in his first term has political fall out that would likely be damaging to Trump among the undecided in the upcoming election.

Secondly, I think there are senior Republicans that do not like Trump or trust him and having a FBI Director who is not completely under Trump's control acts as a check against Trump going to far. Trump may have run and won as a Republican, but he is not one of them. Neither party likes outsiders who won't play by the established rules.

Alternatively, Trump and Wray are playing the long game while they work to find out who else they can't trust in the FBI and DOJ.

There is a part of me that thinks Trump is waiting until after the Democratic Convention to drop some major bombs during the presidential campaign, be it indictments or damaging facts.

5. What they need to do

is a series of top to bottom process reviews with the goals of optimizing the process to protect the rights of citizens and limit the "flexibility" of the FBI in areas where the actions of investigators might put the a fore mentioned rights at risk. In addition they need processes that maximize transparency while again protecting the rights of citizens and holds to account those who misuse the power of their position to forward their own agenda.
