In another dramatic twist of events 15 documents unsealed Thursday show that the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane team and senior FBI officials had worked diligently behind the scenes to target former National Security Advisor for President Trump Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who has withdrawn his guilty plea and is fighting for his case to be dismissed by the courts.
Further, the text messages reveal that there was an original 302 interview with Flynn that was never turned over to the defense. In those text messages between former FBI lovebirds Attorney Lisa Page and FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, they discuss the interview that was conducted with Flynn at the White House and allude to the alteration of the document.
Those explosive documents suggest that the FBI was planning on closing the case on Flynn because there was no proof that he committed any crimes. In fact, the case against Flynn was closed on January 4, 2017 but reopened against Flynn, according to text messages unsealed and obtained by Powell.
The documents, which reveal his FBI code name ‘Crossfire Razor,’ expose that the Department of Justice withheld large amounts of exculpatory evidence from his defense team and, according to his attorney Sidney Powell, reveal egregious government misconduct.
“To be clear, we now know by the production of new text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok that there in fact exists an original 302 document created by SSA 1 from his own notes of the January 24, 2017 ambush interview of Gen Flynn,” said Powell. “Further, we know in fact that SSA 1’s original 302 document went to Stzrok who rewrote it substantially, but tried not to “completely re-write it so as to save [redacted] voice” and then was shared by Stzrok with a “pissed off” Page who revised it substantively yet again, crafting the narrative to charge Gen Flynn with a crime he did not commit.”
She noted that as repugnant as this conduct is on its face, “the travel of this vital document establishes continuously – and until this day – the original FBI agents, the prosecutors, and FBI management’s determination to withhold exculpatory evidence required under Brady, among other violations of Gen Flynn’s civil rights. They withheld it not only to try to convict an innocent man, but to hide their own crimes.”
Moreover, the documents reveal that, according to the closing Electronic Communications memorandum, the goal was to determine if General Flynn “was directed and controlled by and/or coordinated activities with the Russian Federation in a manner which was a threat to the national security.”
They found that there was ‘NO DEROGATORY’ info on him in FBI files:
- NO DEROGATORY info on him in [redacted: likely DIA] files.
- NO DEROGATORY information on him in [redacted: likely CIA] files
Powell stated that all they had was a confidential human source “who seems to be the lovely and ubiquitous Stephan Halper. What follows then [reading between redactions and with knowledge of the players] is a recitation of lies from Halper about Flynn being at the infamous dinner in London when Ms.(Svetlana) Lokhova—a British historian of Russian descent— was also present.”
She noted that “this was while Flynn was head of DIA for Obama, and it’s the Halper smear machine at work through Colonel James Baker in the DOJ ONA who was paying Halper a lot of money through a slush fund to crank out lies like this. In truth, Halper wasn’t at the dinner—which was attended by about 20 members of the DIA, MI6, MI5, etc, and there was nothing of concern to anyone. Everyone had been vetted by our DIA and others.”
Another example, in one email, unsealed Thursday from former Strzok to the then Counterintelligence Director to the FBI William Priestap, Strzok discusses the defensive briefing given to the Trump campaign, in which an agent was sent to spy on Flynn during the briefing. Strzok, who had interviewed Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017, was building the case against the general and for the first time the FBI used a briefing to an incoming president to spy on him, along with members of his campaign.
Strzok’s email to Priestap on January 21, 2017, just days before interviewing Flynn lists process they will utilize to conduct the briefing “CROSSFIRE RAZOR: Provide a defensive briefing to him about CROSS WIND and (redacted) put him on notice, and see what he does with that. If that’s not possible, then continue to monitor. We need to discuss what happens if DOJ directs us, or directly tells, VPOTUS or anyone else about the (redacted) specifically w/r/t what we do under light “defensive briefing” pretext unless WH specifically directs us not to CROSS WIND (redacted).”
Strzok also mentions George Papadopoulos in his email by using his code name ‘Crossfire Typhoon,’ but that part of the email has been redacted. On “The Sara Carter Show” Thursday, Papadopoulos and his wife Simona, discussed the bizarre behavior of the FBI and the circumstances surrounding their case.
Papadopolous, who was sentenced to 12 days in jail, told this reporter that the FBI and intelligence community was weaponized to target President Donald Trump by tearing apart the lives of those around him.
He said that he is hopeful U.S. Prosecutor John Durham, who has been appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the FBI’s handling of its probe into the campaign, will hold those who violated the law accountable and there will be indictments.
On Wednesday, the second tranche of documents unsealed comprised of these 11 pages of text messages and emails that were unsealed today by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan. On Wednesday, Sullivan also unsealed four pages of stunning FBI emails and handwritten notes which allegedly reveal that the retired three star general was targeted by senior FBI officials for prosecution.
Those handwritten notes and emails revealed that the retired three-star general appeared to be set up for a perjury trap and that senior FBI officials were also intending to target him to get him ‘fired’ by the President.

Biden Administration Proposes Rule to Fortify Federal Bureaucracy Against Republican Presidency
In a strategic move, the Biden administration has unveiled a proposed rule aimed at reinforcing the left-leaning federal bureaucracy, potentially hindering future conservative policy implementations by Republican presidents. This move has raised concerns about the efficacy of democratic elections when a deep-seated bureaucracy remains largely unchanged, regardless of electoral outcomes.
Key points of the situation include:
Presidential Appointees vs. Career Bureaucrats: Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The vast majority, made up of career bureaucrats, continue in their roles from one administration to the next. This continuity is facilitated by rules that make it exceedingly difficult to discipline or replace them, resulting in a bureaucracy that tends to lean left politically.
Union Political Affiliation: A striking 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates support Democrats, according to Open Secrets, with only 5% favoring Republicans. This significant political skew among federal workers raises questions about the potential for political bias in the execution of government policies.
Obstructionism and Challenges for GOP Presidents: Some career bureaucrats have been accused of obstructing Republican presidents’ agendas, leading to policy delays and challenges. For example, during the Trump administration, career lawyers in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division declined to challenge Yale University’s discrimination against Asian American applicants, prompting Trump to seek legal counsel from other divisions. The case was subsequently dropped when Joe Biden took office.
Biden’s Countermeasures: President Biden has taken steps to protect the bureaucracy’s status quo. In October 2020, Trump issued an executive order aiming to reclassify federal workers who make policy as at-will employees, but Biden canceled it upon taking office.
Proposed Rule and Congressional Actions: The rule unveiled by the Biden administration seeks to further impede a president’s ability to reinstate Trump’s order. Additionally, some Democrats in Congress are pushing to eliminate the president’s authority to reclassify jobs entirely. This has been referred to as an attempt to “Trump-proof the federal workforce.”
Republican Candidates’ Pledge: GOP candidates such as President Donald J Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis have pledged to address this issue. According to reports from Fox News, Ramaswamy has gone further, advocating for the elimination of half or more of civil service positions, emphasizing the need for accountability.
Debate on the Merit of the Civil Service: While Democrats and their media allies argue that civil service protects merit over patronage, critics contend that the system has evolved into a form of job security for federal workers with minimal accountability. Federal employees often receive higher salaries and more substantial benefits than their private-sector counterparts.
In summary, the Biden administration’s proposed rule and broader actions to protect the federal bureaucracy have sparked a debate over the role of career bureaucrats in shaping government policy.
Republican candidates are vowing to address these concerns, highlighting the need for accountability and ensuring that government agencies work in alignment with the elected president’s agenda. This ongoing debate raises important questions about the relationship between the bureaucracy and the democratic process in the United States.
