    Strzok stopped FBI from ending Flynn probe despite lack of 'derogatory' evidence, unsealed documents reveal

    Internal FBI documents unsealed Thursday indicate that Peter Strzok -- the now-disgraced anti-Trump former head of FBI counterintelligence -- ordered the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn to remain open even after it was slated to be closed due to a lack of so-called "derogatory" information.

    H/T: Fox News

    From the Fox News report:

    Based on the lack of derogatory information, the Washington Field Office concluded that Flynn “was no longer a viable candidate as part of the larger CROSSFIRE HURRICANE umbrella case.”

    Furthermore, the author of the memo noted that since Flynn was not specifically “named as an agent of a foreign power by the original CROSSFIRE HURRICANE predicated reporting” and discussed the absence of derogatory information or leads. He also wrote that at the “direction of FBI management, [Flynn] was not interviewed as part of the case closing procedure.”

    The January 4 memo concluded with this paragraph: “The FBI is closing this investigation. If new information is identified or reported to the FBI regarding the activities of CROSSFIRE RAZOR, the FBI will consider reopening the investigation if warranted.”

    Yet, on that same day -- Jan. 4, 2017 -- Strzok instructed the FBI case manager handling CROSSFIRE RAZOR to keep the investigation open. “Hey don’t close RAZOR," Strzok texted an unidentified individual.

    Strzok informed the FBI case manager that the FBI’s 7th floor was involved, referring to FBI leadership -- and that they still “need to decide what to do with him [with respect to] the [REDACTED].”
