Two weeks after the Justice Department sought to drop charges against U.S. President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the FBI’s director ordered an internal review on Friday of the bureau’s investigation that led to Flynn’s prosecution. Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general who also advised Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, in the weeks before Trump took office. The probe ordered by FBI Director Christopher Wray will “determine whether any current employees engaged in misconduct” in the investigation of Flynn and “evaluate any FBI policies, procedures or controls” that need to be changed, the agency said in a statement.
