FBI director orders internal review of Flynn case

Director of the Federal Investigation Bureau (FBI) Christopher Wray confirmed on Friday he ordered an internal review of the Michael Flynn case.

According to Wray's statement, the purpose of the review will be to "determine whether any current employees engaged in misconduct" and to "evaluate any FBI policies, procedures, or controls implicated by the Flynn investigation and identify any improvements that might be warranted."

Earlier this month, the Department of Justice dropped charges against the former national security adviser who was accused of lying to the FBI about his communication with Russia prior to the 2016 presidential election. In the meantime, President Donald Trump said he considered Flynn innocent, and accused former President Barack Obama and the heads of the Democratic Party of "directing agencies to spy on him."
