Opinion by Randy Tate (TNS)-
What President Obama allowed to happen to incoming Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn will go down in our history as one of the worst abuses of presidential power.
That is, for any American who, regardless of political party or ideology, still cares about true justice.
We already knew, thanks to the declassification of documents by former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell that Flynn was unmasked by scores of Obama sycophants including then-VP Joe Biden.
And we know that he was set up in a perjury trap by corrupted elements of James Comey’s FBI.
Now, according to the Washington Examiner:
An internal Justice Department draft memo from late January 2017 indicates that the FBI concluded retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was not acting as an agent of Russia and noted that agents believed he did not think he was lying to them during an interview about his calls with Russia’s ambassador.
The heavily redacted document (dated Jan. 30, 2017) was released to the Flynn defense team earlier this week and was made visible to the public on Friday in a filing with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It was included along with a new batch of handwritten notes from key DOJ and FBI officials from the Trump-Russia investigation following the interview of the former Trump national security adviser by now-fired FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI agent Joseph Pientka on Jan. 24, 2017.
‘After additional articles came out and Secretary Spicer gave his press conference on January 23, the FBI decided to interview General Flynn on January 24th. During this interview the FBI asked General Flynn about his contacts with the Ambassador. General Flynn recalled a conversation about Israel after prompting by the FBI, but denied having conversations about sanctions,’ the DOJ document states.
‘FBI advised that based on this interview, they did not believe General Flynn was acting as an agent of Russia. FBI also advised that although they recognized the statements were inconsistent with the FISA collection, they believed that Flynn believed what he was telling them. FBI did not confront Flynn with the communications during the interview,” the document states.
On that last part, the question is..why not?
Well, because we know that Strzok and Pientka were trying to get Flynn to say something they could use to charge him with perjury. At Comey’s (and Obama’s) direction.
Speaking of people who ought to be charged with crimes, where is John Durham and how’s that criminal probe going?
