DNI Ric Grenell Declassifying Flynn-Kislyak Transcripts: “The IC doesn’t have all the transcripts/summaries….it wasn’t our product”

CTH: Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard “Ric” Grenell announced today he is in the process of declassifying the transcripts of the calls between Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Within a twitter response by Grenell, part of the riddle behind the transcripts gets a little more clarity: “The IC doesn’t have all the transcripts/summaries…. it wasn’t our product.”

The implication here is the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) did not generate one of the transcripts; that evolved into an FBI equity, and was later used in their case against Lt. General Michael Flynn. The December 29, 2016, intercept was not exclusive to the U.S. intelligence apparatus, and the call summary became proprietary to the FBI; the agency exploiting the underlying content.

This makes sense and explains how the FBI was able to manipulate the framework of the call and keep the remaining U.S. intelligence system away from their internal plan. keep reading

  1. So sick of the cloak and dagger approach, we need much more sunlight and about 400 feet of rope to stretch these bastards neck with.

  2. Strange that Wray wants to tidy up FBI ‘problems’ all of a sudden.
    Assholes. I hope whatever is in future documents causes Wray and his other dingleberries to throw themselves off a cliff.

  3. @joe6 ~ I’m guessing until Ratcliffe is appointed by Trump (he just got voted in by the Senate) … probably sometime in June

    Not so strange if he’s convinced that all the seditious crap he’s been covering up is about to come out soon despite his efforts. Any spin doc will tell you that if bad news about you is going to be in the news anyway, report it yourself first and with as much spin as you can impart to it. It will blunt the effect at least somewhat

    Assholes.

    Not just any old assholes, but gaping, flaming, hemorrhoid-ridden, pustulant, prolapsed, warty, feces-encrusted, cancerous assholes.

  5. @Bad_Brad — That he does. But remember that the SSCI and the rest of TPTB were rabidly opposed to Radcliffe the first time around. There’s good reason to be hopeful that he will continue Grenell’s good work.

  6. AG Barr-Boehner has promised – absolutely promised – that Asst AG Durham will produce a scathing report – by 2028. In addition, obama and biden won’t be mentioned.

    But the report will be scathing. SCATHING.

  7. Claiming to “get to the bottom of this” Wray just climbed into the Bureau’s asshole to hide the many carbuncles Obama planted up there.
