The US-DOJ's Legal Grounds To Drop The Flynn Case:

Recommended Posts




Liberal Law Professor: James Comey and Andrew McCabe Wanted to Entrap Flynn at 'Any Cost on Any Grounds'

Matt Vespa
It seems the only ones who still think ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is guilty of anything are the usual suspects: anti-Trump clowns. Forget the politically motivated charges against Flynn, these folks are simply ignoring the horrific deviations from policy here and the heinous acts of overreach conducted by the FBI to scalp a Trump official because they so desperately wanted Russian collusion to be true. 

The FBI stumbled into this mess and instead of putting out the fire, they decided to pour gasoline on it. This Flynn fiasco shows the lengths at which the FBI will go to ensure their messes aren’t revealed and how they’re willing to destroy someone’s life to make sure their dirty laundry isn’t aired. This is our preeminent domestic law enforcement and domestic intelligence agency. This should scare all of us—and yes, we’re once again reminded that the Trump-Russia collusion hysteria was a myth, it was a hoax, and that government isn’t our friend. Flynn is an unfortunate casualty, but this should be a warning to everyone about what this agency can do to its own citizens. They’re supposed to be impartial. They are not. I’m a huge supporter of law and order and law enforcement. They are our finest, but we have a lot of bad cops in the DOJ/FBI and they should be dragged out forcefully.

Even liberal law professors, like Jonathan Turley who teaches at George Washington University Law School, said the Flynn case should be dropped, but also noted in the Department of Justice’s motion to dismiss, which was filed yesterday, the lengths at which then-FBI Director James Comey, his deputy, Andrew McCabe, and other FBI officials were willing to go to scalp Flynn at all costs. If he wants to, Turley alludes that there could be grounds for Flynn to sue to malicious prosecution [emphasis mine]:

In the motion below, the Justice Department stresses that “the citizen’s safety lies in the prosecutor who … seeks truth and not victims, who serves the law and not factional purposes, and who approaches [the] task with humility.”  It also establishes that there was never a satisfaction of the materiality element to the criminal allegation:

In the case of Mr. Flynn, the evidence shows his statements were not “material” to any viable counterintelligence investigation—or any investigation for that matter—initiated by the FBI. Indeed, the FBI itself had recognized that it lacked sufficient basis to sustain its initial counterintelligence investigation by seeking to close that very investigation without even an interview of Mr. Flynn. See Ex. 1 at 4. Having repeatedly found “no derogatory information” on Mr. Flynn, id. at 2, the FBI’s draft “Closing Communication” made clear that the FBI had found no basis to “predicate further investigative efforts” into whether Mr. Flynn was being directed and controlled by a foreign power (Russia) in a manner that threatened U.S. national security or violated FARA or its related statutes, id. at 3.”

It further notes that key figures like Andrew McCabe “cut off” objections to the overly aggressive pursuit of Flynn.  It describes an effort of former Director James Comey, McCabe, and others to skip common protocols to bag Flynn at any cost on any grounds.

While malicious prosecution cases are notoriously difficult to prove (particularly in a case with a voluntary plea), the motion reinforces the view of many of us that the Justice Department was engaged in a campaign to incriminate Flynn — a campaign that now appears entirely detached from both the evidence and legal standards supporting a criminal charge.

Turley also hit McCabe, who is now with CNN, after he said this probe was done after “surreptitious” meetings with the Russians. Flynn told about these calls while adding that CNN, in typical fashion, never pressed McCabe about him being a proven liar, which led to his firing.

Bring Comey, McCabe, and the rest of this gang back to the Hill. We have more questions.

And the whole time that Flynn was in jail those scumbags, who coerced a false confession out of him by threatening to lock up his son via the same dirty FBI tactics, were letting CNN get away with insinuating that Flynn was in jail because of collusion with Russia. They same thing happened with Manafort, who was only in jail for tax evasion from the '90s. So they indicted a bunch of Russians whose faces we've never even seen and who will never stand trial, and charged two Americans with things unrelated to Russian collusion, and CNN said that there were 13 people charged with Russian collusion lol. Their lack of integrity is somewhere between 99.999% and 100.0001%.

The FBI could charge anyone with 3 things, find them guilty of 1, and then CNN could blab to the world that "A dude was charged with felony counts of having sex with a dead animal, raping children, and failure to appear in court for 47 unpaid parking tickets. He was found guilty and is now being processed in the county jail. More to follow." Then they can say: "Well one thing's for certain, he won't be raping any kids or having sex with an dead animals while he's in jail!" Their moronic viewers would assume that the person was found guilty of all 3 things, even if you showed them a link saying that they were found innocent of the other 2 charges.

No one that watches CNN on a regular basis has an IQ over 60. 

I trust the FBI with the power to arrest people like I trust Graham James to babysit my son.

Everything you said, is so true. In the recent days, I sometimes imagine, what if all Dem voters can be forced to sit down for 2 weeks and view/review every issue which WaPo CNN CBS msnbc has grossly lied about and illegally executed, in their coup against President Trump.

How many would disregard truth and facts, in order to keep hating Trump? How many would be so in awe/appalled by what Dems' MSM pulled on them for their, intelligent vote, to whereas they would hurry to Capitol Hill and protest to have the Dem party banned from the USA?

i have many negro friends in the USA, so I used to heartily support the Dem party. Until around 2014-'15 they started helping me see how much Obama reeeally hates Black people ---unless they are lightskinned of course. Nonetheless, Obama had no interest in helping Black America as a hole (yes, pun intended) and he gave a hint of that when he removed The Public Option from the legendary Obamacare bill before putting it up for a vote. Plus they helped me realize that Joe Biden, himself, wrote the 1994 Crime Bill/New Jim Crow laws that locked away an entire generation (1996-2014) of inner-city Black males via the fake war on drugs. After that, I was done with deceitful Dems. Although I am not happy with the GOP leaders right now, for refusing to prosecute Dems over these political crimes. When regarding Flynn, after fleecing him they then had to file false docx with the FISA court to get mueller's investigation launched. That has to be prosecuted! lol
