IN RE:  Transcript from the Flynn Court Case and Letter of Support from FBI Supervisory Agent

My statement below regarding the Spiritual Warfare occurring, and soon to increase across America, was NOT theatrics.  The level of Satanism practiced in, around, and even under Washington, DC is beyond anything you can imagine or make into a horrific movie.  The child sacrifice by leading public officials, the networks both underground DC and across the country is staggering.  Those who truly want America to collapse into the New World Order is not a joke, not conspiracy theory hoax, but well underway since the 1980’s, and pieces of evidence show actually much earlier.  Quicker than the preponderant majority of Americans want to think, much less really know, the sides are becoming clear and well defined, and soon, very soon, exposure will demonstrate just how far and wide the collusion by Global Elites have gone within our own country.  The conflict by and between the Deep State and those opposed is better known today than when Donald Trump walked into the Oval.  But the clarity of this conflict will be breathtaking as the full measure begins to be made known.  This will lead to very serious disruptions and conflicts across our country.

Lt. Gen. Flynn (Ret) knew much of this…he “got it!”  While he did not launch a one-man crusade when appointed National Security Advisor, he did have so many details that he was ever the more a threat to the Globalists running D.C.  Gen Flynn’s views on the Islamic State setting up camps here in America, the Deep State players sabotaging even our elections, and so much more, made him a huge target.  Given the plans of the Global Cabal Flynn represented low hanging fruit on the political spectrum, and going after him would begin a wave they intended to wash across the Trump Administration leading to Impeachment.  Failing to produce this, the Global Cabal’s backup plan was to render the Trump Administration null and void, unable to function so they could remove him in 2020.  This, in part, is the plan that has been hatched with the change of the Congress taking place next month.  The large numbers of subpoenas will shock you, and the Socialist Democrats intend to make subpoenas and committee hearings about the only work taking place in Washington over the next two years. 

The Judge Kavanaugh Hearings for the Supreme Court were an example of the putrid hate the Socialists have toward anything that represents our Judeo-Christian Foundations as an exceptional nation.  “Getting Trump” takes precedent over protecting America and making America Great Again!  So Americans can suffer while Socialist Democrats focus solely on getting Trump.  The Kavanaugh Hearings was an example of Spiritual Warfare acting out in the natural.   The ongoing smears of dedicated Americans, like Gen Flynn, is another example of the Jezebel Spirit loosed over and around Washington, DC.  Gen Flynn and his wife, Lori, became Born Again Christians through the Valley of the Shadows they have traveled these past two years.  Mike’s growing understanding of God’s Word, the insights he has obtained by reading, studying, and discussion, especially as he and his wife take their walks, is remarkable, refreshing, and positioning him to truly minister to others one day soon.  With all on his plate, and it is full, he has peace which passes all understanding, and can only be given by the author of Peace; Jehovah Shalom, the Lord of Peace.  The Gen has a message to share, to teach, and one day sooner than later, I believe he will.

Lt. Gen Mike Flynn (Ret.) is NOT A TRAITOR TO THIS NATION!!  A day is likely coming when the curtain will be pulled back, and a large segment, if not the full story, will be told and it will again demonstrate Mike Flynn did not Lie, but clearly there was some miscommunications – but NOT to the FBI who employed craft to take him down, and open a path they hoped would lead to Trump.  This makes what that judge did all the more horrible.  Now read what a former FBI Supervisory Agent wrote about Lt. Gen Mike Flynn (Ret.) The letter was sent to the judge, and I pray many others will be, also!

Letter to Judge Sullivan in Support of General Michael T. Flynn

Original letter sent to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan by former Special Supervisory Agent Robyn Gritz, who worked closely with General Flynn in counter-terrorism operations as more fully described in the letter, as well as an inside view into the character and tactics used by those in charge of his investigation, by someone who has come to know them well.

December 5, 2018

The Honorable Emmet G. Sullivan.

 U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia

333 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
Washington D.C. 20001

Re: Sentencing of Lt. General Michael T. Flynn (Ret.)

Dear Judge Sullivan:

I am submitting my letter directly since Mike Flynn’s attorney has refused to submit it as well as letters submitted by other individuals. I feel you need to hear from someone who was an FBI Special Agent who not only worked with Mike, but also has personally witnessed and reported unethical & sometimes illegal tactics used to coerce targets of investigations externally and internally.

About Myself and FBI Career

For 16 years, I proudly served the American people as a Special Agent working diligently on significant terrorism cases which earned noteworthy results and fostered substantial interagency cooperation. Prior to serving in the FBI I was a Juvenile Probation Officer in Camden, NJ. Currently, I am a Senior Information Security Metrics and Reporting Analyst with Discover Financial Services in the Chicago Metro area. I have recently been named as a Senior Fellow to the London Center for Policy Research. While in the FBI, I served as a Special Agent, Supervisory Special Agent, Assistant Inspector, Unit Chief, and a Senior Liaison Officer to the CIA. I served on the NSC’s Hostage and Personnel Working Group and brought numerous Americans out of captivity and was part of the interagency team to codify policies outlining the whole of government approach to hostage cases.

In November 2007, I was selected over 26 other candidates to become the Supervisory Special Agent, CT Extraterritorial Squad; Washington Field Office (WFO) in Washington, DC. At WFO, I led a squad of experts in extraterritorial evidence collection, overseas investigations, operational security during terrorist attacks/events, and overseas criminal investigations. I coordinated and managed numerous high profile investigations (Blackwater, Chuckie Taylor, Robert Levinson, and other pivotal cases) comprised of teams from US and foreign intelligence, military, and law enforcement agencies. I was commended for displaying comprehensive leadership performance under pressure, extensive teamwork skills, while conducting critical investigative analysis within and outside the FBI.

In December 2009, I was promoted to GS-15 Unit Chief (UC) of the Executive Strategy Unit, Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate (WMDD). While the UC, I codified the WMDD five-year strategic plan, formulated goals and objectives throughout the division, while translating the material into a directorate scorecard with cascading measurements reflecting functional and operational unit areas. This was the only time in Washington, DC when I did not work with of for McCabe.

From September to December 2010, I was selected as the FBI’s top candidate to represent the FBI, and the USG in a rigorous, intellectually stimulating; 12 week course for civilian government officials, military officers, and government academics at the George C. Marshall Center in Garmisch, Germany, Executive Program in Advanced Security Studies. The class was comprised of 141 participants from 43 countries.

I have received numerous recommendations and commendations for my professionalism, liaison and interpersonal ability and experience. Additionally, I have been rated Excellent or Outstanding for my entire career, to include by Andrew McCabe when I was stationed at the Washington Field Office. Further, other awards of note are: West Chester University 2005 Legacy of Leadership recipient, Honored with House of Representatives Citation for Exemplary record of Service, Leadership, and Achievements: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and Awarded with a framed Horn of Africa blood chit from the Department of Defense and Office of the DASD (POW/MPA/MIA) for my work in bringing Americans Out of captivity, “Patriot, Law Enforcement Warrior, and Friend.”

Length of Association with Flynn, McCabe, and Mueller

I met Michael Flynn in 2005, while working in the Counterterrorism Division (CTD) at FBI Headquarters (FBIHQ).

I met then Supervisory Special Agent Andrew McCabe, when he reported to CTD at FBIHQ, around the same time. McCabe subsequently was the Assistant Section Chief over my unit, my Assistant Special Agent in Charge at the Washington Field Office, and the Assistant Director (AD) over CTD when I encountered the discrimination and McCabe spearheaded the retaliation personally (according to documentation) against me.

I have known both men for 12-13 years and worked directly with both throughout my career. They are on the opposite spectrum of each other with regard to truthfulness, temperament, and ethics, both professionally and personally.

I regularly briefed former FBI Director and Special Prosecutor Mueller on controversial and complex cases and attended Deputies meetings at the White house with then Deputy Director Pistole. I got along with both and trusted both. Watching what has been done to Mike and knowing someone on the 7th floor had to have notified Mueller of my situation (Pistole had retired), has been significantly distressing to me.

Lt.G. Michael T. Flynn:

Mike and I were counterparts on a DOJ-termed ground-breaking initiative which served as a model for future investigations, policies, legislation and FBI programs in the Terrorist Use of the Internet. For this multi-faceted and leading-edge joint operation, I was commended by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Gen. Keith Alexander (NSA Director), and LtG. Michael Flynn as well as others for leading the FBI’s pivotal participation in this dynamic and innovative interagency operation. I received two The National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation (NIMUC) I for my role in this operation. The NIMUC is an award of the National Intelligence Awards Program, for contributions to the United States Intelligence Community.

Mick Flynn has consistently and candidly been honest and straightforward with me since the day I met him in 2005. He has been a mentor and someone I trust to give me frank advice when I ask for his opinion. His caring nature has shown through especially when he saw me being torn apart by the FBI and he felt compelled to write a letter in support of me. He further took the extra step to comment on my character in an NPR article and interview exposing the wrongdoings in my case and others who have stood up for truth and against discrimination/retaliation. Senator Grassley also commented on my behalf. NPR characterized this action against me as a “warning shot” to individuals who stood up to individuals such as McCabe.

The day after I resigned from the FBI, while I was crying, Mike reached out and congratulated me on my early retirement. I really needed to hear that from someone I respected so much. His support for the last 13 years has been unparalleled and extremely valuable in helping me get through the trauma of betrayal, unethical behavior, illegal activity executed against me and to rebuild my life. Additionally, his support has helped my family in dealing with their painful emotions regarding my situation. My parents wanted me to pass on to you that they are blessed that I have had a compassionate and supportive individual on my side throughout this trying time.

Mike has been a respected leader by his peers and by FBI Agents and Analysts who have interacted with him. I personally feel he is the finest leader I have ever worked with or for in my career. Our continued friendship and subsequent friendship with his family has helped all of us cope with the stress a situation like this puts on individuals and families.

It is so very painful to watch an American hero, and my friend, torn apart like this. His family has had to endure what no family should have to. I know this because of the damaging effect my case had on my parent’s health, finances, and emotional well-being. Mike and I both had to sell our houses due to legal fees, endured smear campaigns (mostly by the same individual, McCabe). I ended up being deemed homeless by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, was on public assistance and endured extensive health and emotional damage due to the retaliation. Mike kept in touch and kept me motivated. He has always reached out to help me with whatever he could.

The Process is the Punishment

Thomas Fitton of Judicial Watch commented to me that the “Process is the punishment.” This is the most accurate description I have heard regarding the time Mike has gone through with this process and the year and a half I was ostracized and idled before I resigned. This process is one which many FBI employees, current, retired and former, feel was brought to the FBI by Mueller and he subsequently brought this to the Special Prosecutor investigation. It also fostered the behavior among FBI “leadership” which we find ourselves shocked at when revealed on a daily basis. Is this the proper way to seek justice? I say no. I swore to uphold the Constitution while protecting the civil rights of the American people. I believe many individuals involved in Mike’s case have lost their way and could care less about protection of due process, civil and legal rights of who they are targeting. Mike has had extensive punishment throughout this process. This process has punished him harder than anyone else could.

Andrew McCabe

I believe I have a unique inside view of the mannerisms surrounding Andrew McCabe, other FBI Executive Management and Former Director Mueller, as well as the unethical and coercive tactics they use, not to seek the truth, but to coerce pleas or admissions to end the pain, as I call it. They destroy lives for their own agendas instead of seeking the truth for the American people. Candor is something that should be encouraged and used by leadership to have necessary and continued improvement. Under Mueller, it was seen as a threat and viciously opposed by those he pulled up in the chain of command.

I am explaining this because numerous Agents have expressed the need for you to know McCabe’s and Mueller’s pattern of “target and destroy” has been utilized on many others, without regard for policies and laws. I, myself, am a casualty of this reprehensible behavior and I have spoken to well over 150 other FBI individuals who are casualties as well.

I am the individual who filed the Hatch Act complaint against McCabe and provided significant evidentiary documents obtained via FOIA, open source, and information from current, former, and retired Special Agents. The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) asked why my filing of the complaint was delayed from the actual acts. I said I personally thought I was providing additional information to what should have been an automatic referral to OSC by FBI OPR. I was notified I was the only complainant. This illustrates not only a fatal flaw in OPR AD Candice Will not making the appropriate and crucial referral, but also shows the fear of those within the FBI to report individuals like McCabe for fear of retaliation.

While serving at the CIA, detailed by the FBI in January 2012, I was responsible for overseas investigations, as opposed to Continental United States-based (CONUS) cases. Unfortunately, during my assignment at the CIA, I encountered extensive discrimination by two FBI Special Agents and subsequently, in 2012, I filed an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint. Instead of addressing the issues, then CTD Assistant Director Andrew McCabe chose to authorize a retaliatory Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) investigation against me, five days after my EEO contact. The OPR referral he signed was authored by the two individuals I had filed the EEO complaint against. In his signed sworn statement, McCabe admitted he knew I had filed or was going to file the EEO.

Numerous members of my department at the CIA requested to be spoken with by CTD executive management, regarding my work ethic and accomplishments. However, CTD, Inspection Division, and OPR disregarded the list of names and contact numbers I submitted. This is an example of knowing you are being targeted and the truth is not being sought.

Although my time at this position was short, I was commended by my CIA direct supervisor for: “having already contributed more than your predecessor in the short time you have been here.” My predecessor had been assigned to the post for 18 months; I had been there four months.

In contrast and showing lack of candor, McCabe wrote on official documents the following statement, contradicting the actual direct supervisor I worked with daily:

“SA Gritz had to be removed from a prior position in an interagency environment, due to inappropriate communications and general performance issues”

This is one of many comments McCabe used to discredit my reputation and to ostracize me. McCabe knew me as someone who told the truth, worked hard, got results, and was always willing to be flexible when needed. He was also acutely aware of the excellent relationships I had formed in the USG interagency due to comments made by individuals from numerous agencies. Yet, he continued to make false statements on official documents. He has done this to numerous other very valuable FBI employees, destroying their careers and lives. He used similar tactics of lies against Flynn. It should be noted, McCabe was very aware of my professional association with Mike Flynn.

In July 5, 2012, I was involuntarily pulled back to CTD from the CIA. I was told McCabe made the decision. A year and a month later, I resigned from the job I absolutely loved and was good at. All because of the lack of candor of numerous individuals within the FBI.

Unethical and dishonest investigative tactics

Throughout the last year, I have kept abreast of the revelations surrounding anything related to Mike’s case. I believe, from my years at the FBI and in exposing corruption and discrimination, the circumstances surrounding the targeting, investigation, leaking, and coercion of him to plea are all consistent with the unethical process I and many others have witnessed at the FBI. The charge which Mike Flynn plead to was the result of deception, intimidation, and bias/agenda. Simply, Mike is being branded a convicted felon due to an unethical and dishonest investigation by people who were malicious, vindictive, and corrupt. They wished to silence Mike, like they had once silenced me.

The American people have read the Strzok/Page text messages, the conflicting testimony and lack of candor statements of former Director Comey, the perceived overstepping of the reasonable scope of the Special Prosecutor’s investigation, the extensive unethical, untruthful, and outright illegal behavior of Andrew McCabe, to include slanderous statements against Flynn, and the facts found within FOIA released documents and Congressional testimony. As a former/retired Agent, I have combed through every piece of information regarding Mike’s case, as if I was combing through evidence in the hundreds of cases I have successfully handled while in the FBI.

The publicly reported Brady material alone, in this case, outweighs any statement given by any FBI Agent (we now know at least one FD-302 was changed), Special Prosecutor investigator report, and any other party still aggressively seeking that this case remain and be sentenced as a felony. Quite simply, I cannot see justice being served by branding LtG. Michael Flynn a convicted felon, when the truth is still being revealed while policies, ethics, and laws have been violated by those pursuing this case.

We now know all FBI employees involved in Mike Flynn’s case have either been fired, forced to resign or forced to retire because of their excessive lack of candor, punitive biases, leaking of information, and extensive cover-up of their deeds.


Michael Flynn has always displayed overwhelming candor and forthrightness. One of the main individuals involved in his case is Andrew McCabe, who used similar tactics against me in my case, of which Mike Flynn defended me by penning a letter of character reference and is a witness. Seeing McCabe was named as a Responding Management Official in my case, he should have recused himself with anything having to do with a character witness on my behalf against him and DOJ.

I’m told by numerous people, but have been unable to confirm, that McCabe was asked why he was so viciously going after Flynn; my name was mentioned. I do know, from experience with McCabe, he is a vindictive individual and I have no doubt Mike’s support of me fueled McCabe’s disdain and personally vindictive aggressive unethical activities in this case. It matches his behavior in my case.

Reliable fact-finding is essential to procedural due process and to the accuracy and uniformity of sentencing. I’m unsure if the fact-finding in this case is reliable, nor do I think we currently have all the facts.

The punishment which LtG. Flynn has already endured this past year, due to the nature of the case, legal fees and reputation damage, is punishment enough. He is a true patriot, a loving husband and father, a devoted grandfather, a trusted friend, and has a close knit family made up of compassionate and honest individuals. To be branded a felon, is a major hit to a hero who protected the American people for 33 years. I do not think society would benefit from Mike Flynn going to jail nor being branded as a convicted felon. Not knowing the sentencing guidelines for this charge but if there is any chance that the case can be downgraded to a misdemeanor, this would be an act of justice that numerous Americans need to see to stay hopeful for further justice.

Respectfully yours,

Thanks for sharing Lyle and I couldn’t agree with you any more. Hopefully the prayers will do the job. We shall see. And yes, you put your finger on it exactly. This is without a doubt “spiritual warfare” and a spiritual attack against the president. And we as well as president Trump knew it was coming. No way are the leftists and Satan himslef going to allow a Godly man to lead and try and fix a broken America.

Trump and America need our prayers desperately.




Wednesday –

December the 19th, 2018

1440Hrs; C.S.T. (Texas)




Down to the very end, and then into overtime, the Spiritual Warfare continues.  That is exactly what is taking place in front of an entire nation to see, but sadly, miss.  Lt. Gen. (Ret) Mike Flynn is NO TRAITOR TO HIS COUNTRY!!  This judge is a traitor to the Rule of Law if anything.  NO evidence presented to have Gen. Flynn even appear before the bench, much less have a jurist from the bench say what he did.  No wonder the judge ordered a recess…he had to figure out now what to say and how to say it to walk back his asinine statement on the record; not to mention the record reflects this judge was so confused as to what case was before him, and the content therein, he made statements demonstrating he was unclear to the facts and particulars of the case before him.  What ashamed!  Gen. Flynn should have been set free to begin rebuilding his life, and that of his incredibly courageous and loyal wife, Lori.  Mueller and company should have faced the tirade of this confused jurist – NOT Mike Flynn!  So…in March the circus appears once again before this court.  I pray between now and then this judge actually reads the case, and gets a judicial consultant to help him navigate the legal language for a directed dismissal of the case!!  Court Adjourn!!






TRANSCRIPT FROM FLYNN HEARING Shows Judge Confused, Abusive, Careless and Unfamiliar with Facts of the Case

Michael Flynn and his wife arrived this morning at the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse for his sentencing at 11:00 AM.

Flynn was scheduled for sentencing today for lying to FBI investigators. Flynn was set up by Obama Deep State operatives who did not even tell him he was being interrogated at the time.
Their 302 report is littered with inconsistencies and outright lies.

JUDGE SULLIVAN LECTURED FLYNN IN COURT TODAY…. “Arguably, you sold your country out.”

Judge Emmet Sullivan on Tuesday suggested that General Michael Flynn committed treason.

Michael Flynn is a decorated war veteran and hero.
The ONLY REASON he is being investigated is because he supported Donald Trump.

Later today the court released a transcript of the hearing.

Judge Sullivan was confused, abusive, careless and unfamiliar with the case.
The hearing today was a disgrace and an assault on an American hero.

Techno-Frog tweeted out the transcript with comment.

Judge Sullivan accused Mike Flynn of being “an agent of a foreign government” while working in the White House.
This is not even close to being true.

The judge then is outraged over what is actually his screw-up
