Recommended Posts

knew this had to come somehow. he's just too dangerous for Trump. the man who confessed. walks.

DOJ drops criminal case against Michael Flynn

Trumps assault on law and order is now more powerful than ever. Nothing tied to his corruption will be investigated. expect new investigations into his political enemies shortly. truly a low point in modern US history.

"Notably, the bombshell court filing Thursday asking U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan to toss out the case bore the signature of only one prosecutor: U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Timothy Shea, a former Barr aide named to the post in January."

no one wants their name on that document. find some lacky.

Justice for General Flynn: A Seminal Moment in the War Against the Deep State

Posted at 10:00 pm on April 29, 2020 by Elizabeth Vaughn

 

Note: Four documents were unsealed tonight. The newly released documents can be viewed here. (DD is a reference to then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.) Fox News is reporting that there are eleven more documents expected to be unsealed in the next 24-48 hours. It should be noted that Attorney General William Barr compelled their release.

It would not be an exaggeration to call this story a bombshell. This is truly a seminal moment in the war against the deep state. Newly unsealed internal FBI notes taken by the agency’s former assistant director of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, show top bureau officials discussing strategy ahead of their January 24, 2017 interview of General Michael Flynn, the Trump administration’s newly minted National Security Advisor. There was no reason to interview him. He hadn’t committed a crime.

Priestap’s notes say, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute [Flynn] or get him fired?” Top FBI officials were devising a plan to force him into making a false statement. They intended to catch him in a perjury trap. They hoped to get him to admit he violated the Logan Act.

 

In order to understand Flynn’s long legal journey over the last three years, one must be aware of the animosity President Obama and his top intelligence officials felt toward him.

Flynn had served as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during the Obama Administration from July 2012 to August 2014. Throughout his tenure, Flynn found himself strongly and frequently “at odds with the administration’s policies on ISIS and the Iran nuclear deal, among other things, which put him at odds with the Obama-friendly deep state.” Following his ouster, Flynn’s public remarks deepened the rift. For instance, in November 2015 during an appearance on Fox News, ” Flynn called for an investigation into the ISIS intel-skewing scandal, recommending that it “start right at the top.”

Over the transition period, Flynn, who had already been tapped as Trump’s NSA, held several conversations with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. During one of the calls, Kislyak brought up Obama’s just-announced sanctions. (Although it was perfectly legal for Flynn to discuss the sanctions with Kislyak, for whatever reason, he chose to lie to Vice President Mike Pence about the calls and President Trump quickly fired him.)

 

 

Kislyak had been under US surveillance and Obama intelligence officials had access to recordings and transcriptions of his calls. After listening to the calls, several of Obama’s DOJ officials decided Flynn was in violation of the Logan Act, a law enacted in 1799, which “prohibits private citizens from acting on behalf of the U.S. in disputes with foreign governments.” (No one has ever been prosecuted under this law.)

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York explains:

The Obama officials also said they were concerned by reports that Flynn, in a conversation with Vice President Mike Pence, had denied discussing sanctions. This, the officials felt, might somehow expose Flynn to Russian blackmail.

So Obama appointees atop the Justice Department sent FBI agents to the White House to interview Flynn, who was ultimately charged with lying in that interview.

Their expressed concern that Flynn might become the target of a Russian blackmail scheme was a lie. This was a set-up.

PJ Media’s Debra Heine explains:

Obama already despised Flynn. But his hate likely turned to fear when his former DIA decided to throw his support behind Donald J. Trump, another boat-rocker who had a real chance of winning. Obama made a point after the 2016 election of advising Trump not to hire Flynn. But Trump didn’t listen.

Next thing Flynn knew, government spies were listening in on his innocuous phone conversations with Kislyak, his name was unmasked by someone in the Obama administration, and the contents of the calls were leaked to the Washington Post’s David Ignatius, (which remains the only serious crime to have emerged in the Russia investigation).

This was an ambush of an innocent man, an American citizen, a General who served in the U.S. military for 33 years, and the premier law enforcement agency in the United States tried to frame him.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace interviewed James Comey in December 2018. Wallace said, “You look at this White House now and it’s hard to believe two FBI agents wound up in the sit. room. How did that happen?”

Comey replied, “I sent them.” This remark was followed by laughter from the audience.

He told Wallace the FBI had not followed protocol with this interview and said it was “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more … organized administration.”

Funny, huh?

This is a moment many of us had almost given up on. The deep state has covered their tracks very well, but they just didn’t count on an attorney general like William Barr who would actually seek justice. He turned the case over to an outside prosecutor for independent review in February. Nor did they count on a strong, determined lawyer like Sidney Powell.

This is the day that the dam burst open and the deep state got swept away.

Here’s to you, General Flynn

You are a Dem, so you are proud of the Dem's illegally manipulating and conspiring against General Flynn.  You hate America, so you only have a problem with general Flynn here ---but you love the deceitful Dems who illegally manipulated him.

TRANSLATION: darn it, Tdot! I hate the way you answer questions, boxing us in, to the Dem's Deceit Doctrine we idolize.  Like here, I focus on General Flynn "he confessed, he pleaded guilty" but then you came and extinguished my nonsense theme here ---by reminding readers how the Dems entrapped Gen. Flynn and that is an illegal act in America. I cannot contend with the way you continually, expose me, so my deceitful brain is reduced to dishonestly namecalling you a troll and a Russian bot lol.

 

So now, general Flynn goes home and you Dems are left looking, stupid and deceitful, yes just exactly like I said back when Dems filed false docx with the FISA Court over this exact ordeal re: General Flynn.

No, it’s only that simple if you’re a fan of police states.  The FBI had the transcripts. Even they admitted that there was no crime.  They had no reason to interview Flynn, without a lawyer, other than to hope he said something different than what was in the transcript.  There was no cause for their interview.  There was no crime to investigate.  You can’t just interview people at will without any probable cause for an underlying crime.  Thankfully justice was achieved in this political lynching.  Btw, talking to Russians isn’t a crime.  This is all rank McCarthyism.

what are you talking about, Shady? there was a crime investigation. it was an investigation into collusion with Russia. the Trump campaign had numerous close ties to Russians. the Russians were actively engaged to influence the election. its basic logic to want to see where that goes because if there had been quid pro quo for Russian help then that would have been illegal.

certainly its all a little mute at this point as Trump has been unsuccessful at making the Putin regime look like a bunch of nice guys. but Trump has still paid off for Putin with the withdraw of the US from the world military stage.

You’re still not informed enough regarding the new information.  I suggest reading up to get better informed.  In the new documents released even the FBI knew that Flynn had committed no crime.  The investigation was set to be closed.  However, certain individuals within the FBI demanded it to stay open, so that they could try to entrap Flynn.  That’s what happened.  They didn’t need to interview Flynn, because they already knew who he talked to, they had the transcripts.  He committed no crime.  But they went on with the interview without his lawyer present in order to entrap him.  They didn’t even tell him what the interview was regards to!  He was under the impression that it was part of the process of the new administration taking office.  Stop defending abuses of power.  If the FBI gets away with doing that to him, what chance does the average person have?  They can do that to anyone.  That’s not a country most people want to live in.  It’s terrifying.  It’s what many people around the world Leafs to escape from.

cops do this all the time. all the time! its a regular police tactic man! there is no "abuse of power". cops do this to squeeze info out of participants. Flynn lied when there was no reason for him to lie? Flynn was cooperating until he got the message that Trump was going to do everything that he could to get him off. talk about abuse of power!

i understand the need for Trump supporters to glom on to any shred of hope. any tiny mistake made by the cops. they did it by the book. they do this ALL THE TIME at all levels of policing. they do it because it works.

Stone is next. mark my words, i'm predicting it now. Stone will never see the inside of a jail. he lied. he covered up. he fucked with witnesses. he knows too much for Trump to throw under the bus.

anyways, i appreciate your thoughtful participation, Shady.
