Testimony in the Sussmann trial repeatedly referenced a familiar name to followers of the Russiagate saga. Joe Pientka, a Supervisory Special agent at the FBI forwarded the information on the Alfa server received from Sussmann to Curtis Heide on September 19th, 2016. A week later, it was Pientka that the team was reaching out to asking to be connected to the source of the Alfa server allegations.
People say Pientka asked off CH like it bothered him,
He ended up in SF office where the Seth Rich laptop landed.
Very interesting. How was Pientka's testimony posture? I believe LMG said he was basically giving FU testimony with him not 'remembering' even his last job description/title and being deliberately unhelpful.
