Andrew McCarthy, writing in the National Review, outlined the case that the FBI, under the direction of James Comey, working through Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, and others, set up General Michael Flynn for a perjury trap. Comey sent Strzok and another agent to entrap General Flynn on January 24, 2017. The reason was to remove General Flynn as Trump’s national security adviser because General Flynn, an experienced military and intelligence officer, would have discovered the FBI’s investigation of President Trump, titled “Crossfire Hurricane” but otherwise known as the Russia Hoax.
McCarthy answers the question of why to entrap General Flynn to remove him. But the next question is, did Comey act on his own or on orders, explicit or implicit, from his superiors to entrap General Flynn to remove him? In an interview with Nicolle Wallace, Comey bragged that he had sent two FBI agents to question General Flynn.
