Now, we know why Andrew McCabe was desperate for immunity from the Senate. Back in February, Journalist Mike Cernovich broke a story in which he claimed Andrew McCabe altered Peter Strzok’s 302 for the interview of Gen Michael Flynn.
To make matters worse, he then gave the altered 302 to Sally Yates to speed up the firing of Michael Flynn. Yates told the White House Flynn lied but the original 302 said that he hadn’t. It is not known if Yates knew if the 302 had been changed to reflect the lie.
Here are Cernovich’s original tweets:
“Huge scoop. Like my other big stories (Susan Rice, security clearances, Conyers) will take media a long time to confirm. You know how Peter Strzok’s system didn’t back up. You know why? McCabe altered his 302 of the Flynn interview, and deleted all history of revisions.”
“The IG knows McCabe changed Peter Strzok 302 / notes with General Flynn. Yet issuing a report to this effect would call thousands of FBI investigations into question. It’s full-on freak-out mode, as no one know how to spin this.”
Today the Senate sent a referral to IG Horowitz on McCabe’s alleged actions:
“Senate investigators suspect Gen. Flynn’s 302s were edited by McCabe, referred matter to IG Horowitz”
Senate investigators suspect Gen. Flynn's 302s were edited by McCabe, referred matter to IG Horowitz

On Friday May 11, 2018, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein stating Comey testified the FBI didn’t think General Flynn lied. Grassley also revealed Joe Pientka was the second FBI agent who joined Peter Strzok on January 24th, 2017 in an ambush-style interview to take down General Flynn.
Rosenstein refused to give the Senate Judiciary Committee the requested documents. Instead, Rosenstein provided “insufficient” documents prompting Grassley to send a second scathing letter to the Deputy AG.
It appears Senate investigators have finally received the 302 notes or evidence confirming Cernovich’s February scoop that the FBI summary on Flynn’s interview was altered by McCabe.
McCabe is in deep crap unless he can implicate a lot of other people.
