For years, we heard that General Michael Flynn was a traitor. He is not. He is anything but a traitor, according to newly unsealed documents from the FBI. According to those same documents we may be able to have that conversation about some of the top folks in the FBI and Obama DOJ.
Remember that General Flynn was, briefly, President Trump’s National Security Advisor, and a well-qualified one at that. Gen. Michael Flynn is a 3-star General with over 30 years of service to his country in the U.S. Army, Special Ops, and led the Defense Intelligence Agency. He was forced out in 2014. He was also forced to resign over these allegations we’ll discuss.
General Flynn was accused of lying about his contact with a Russian ambassador. He ultimately pleaded Guilty to lying to the FBI. However, the agents who interviewed him did not think he was lying during the interview. Since then General Flynn has acquired new counsel and motioned to withdraw his plea, citing corruption at the FBI, DOJ, and within the plea deal.
Flynn was represented by Covington and Burling Law Firm. The motion to withdraw the guilty plea also cites ineffective counsel. The Law Firm has since turned over thousands of documents, as requested by court, that seem to include exculpatory evidence.
Guess who's a partner in this law firm?
It's not too hard to believe, now, that the representation of General Flynn could have actually been corrupted as claimed.
Newly unsealed documents about the FBI's interview show that it was a 'setup' plan all along. They didn't follow protocol and give General Flynn any indication he was in an actual 'interview' due to commission of a crime. They actually discussed the best way to interview him without him knowing he was being interviewed.
FBI notes show their planning, going into the discussion:
What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?
Keep in mind, here, that the FBI had no case on him and the Mueller investigation proved they found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Another goal was to get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act. According to The Federalist, the law is "widely viewed as unconstitutional and hasn't been used to prosecute a single American".
an alternate goal is to “get [Flynn] to admit breaking the Logan Act,” a reference to a 1799 law restricting communications between private citizens and foreign governments.
To make matters worse, they now claim that there was a side condition to the plea deal that the judge was unaware of. The Mueller team allegedly gave Flynn the opportunity to plead guilty in exchange for them not going after his son.
Why would the Obama FBI, DOJ, and perhaps a law firm want Flynn prosecuted and removed? Some say it was because he worked for Trump and had information about the Obama administration corruption. Flynn claimed that the Obama administration was arming ISIS and it was a "willful decision" by the Obama administration.
Flynn is waiting on a ruling on his motion to have the entire case dismissed.
