Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz.
Former Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz says on her GoFundMe.com page:
I lost everything including my house fighting corruption in the FBI. I was an honest agent that knew the American people were my boss. Current FBI management seems to have forgotten that. I was targeted and pushed out. I continue to fight corruption in the FBI and expose those who are unethical. This account will be for travel and lodging expenses etc for myself and my attorney (which I’m responsible for) when we have to go to court and/or DOJ/FBI for my case. The FBI drags this process out because they know victims can’t afford all of this. Thank you for reading. You can listen to my hour long interview which let me tell a portion of my story.[1]
Appearing on Fox and Friends Gritz said she began working with Andrew McCabe in 2005 and that McCabe retaliated against her for filing a harassment claim against a supervisor. When she filed the suit, Andrew McCabe signed off on an internal investigation against her, adding that "he know that I was either filing or going to file the [case]. I went through hell for a year and a half. Andy made sure I couldn't get out of the division." Gritz said that McCabe made "nasty, false" comments about her in a meeting -- "lying," she said. "which is why he just got fired."[2] Gritz's work with the FBI included major positions and responsibilities:[3]
  • Supervisor – Special Agent Counter-terrorism Division
  • Unit Chief – Executive Strategy Unit, WMD Directorate
  • Supervisory Special Agent – Washington Field Office :*Extraterritorial Counter-terrorism and Abductions.
NPR previously reported on the Robin Gritz case:
"Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who led the Defense Intelligence Agency, worked closely with Gritz to find terrorists overseas. He says it's a shame the FBI let go of someone with years of top national security experience.
"She was one of the really, to me, bright lights and shining stars early on that just kinda got it when it came to the kind of enemy that we were facing and the relationship that was necessary between law enforcement and the military ... and I just thought she was really a real pro," Flynn says."[4]
Flynn may have been the victim of retribution and personal animosity:[5]
The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.
Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.
The FBI sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case, memos obtained by Circa show. Two years later, the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn.[6]
