For three years, the cover-up of the Obama administration’s biggest political crime remained intact.
But now the effort to conceal the truth about one of the worst scandals in American political history is collapsing.
All hell broke loose when a smoking gun incriminating Loretta Lynch just surfaced.
From day one, the investigation and subsequent prosecution of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn smelled fishy to many Americans.
When FBI agents interviewed Flynn in his White House office on January 24, 2017 about his late December conversation with the Russian Ambassador, it did not make any sense.
As incoming National Security Advisor, Flynn had every right to speak with the Russian Ambassador about the Obama administration imposing sanctions in response to alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Months later, Robert Mueller extracted a guilty plea from Flynn for making false statements to the FBI, but Flynn later fired his attorneys and retained Sidney Powell to have his plea thrown out.
Flynn claimed he was set up by the FBI.
And last Friday, the FBI made documents available to Powell that prompted her to file a hair on fire motion accusing corrupt cops at the FBI of conspiring with the Department of Justice as far back as August 2016 to set up Flynn on sham criminal charges.
“This afternoon, the government produced to Mr. Flynn stunning Brady evidence that proves Mr. Flynn’s allegations of having been deliberately set up and framed by corrupt agents at the top of the FBI,” Powell argued. “It also defeats any argument that the interview of Mr. Flynn on January 24, 2017 was material to any ‘investigation.’ The government has deliberately suppressed this evidence from the inception of this prosecution — knowing there was no crime by Mr. Flynn.”
“Since August 2016 at the latest, partisan FBI and DOJ leaders conspired to destroy Mr. Flynn. These documents show in their own handwriting and emails that they intended either to create an offense they could prosecute or at least get him fired,” Powell added. “The government’s misconduct in this case is beyond shocking and reprehensible. It mandates dismissal.”
Acting Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates – an Obama holdover still serving in the Trump administration until her replacement was confirmed – set up the Flynn interview on the pretense that Flynn violated the 1799 Logan Act with his December phone call to the Russian Ambassador.
The Logan Act – which has never been used to successfully convict an American citizen – prevents a private citizen from negotiating with a foreign government.
Yates knew all of this.
But she conspired with the FBI to set a trap for Flynn where they would charge him for making false statements if he misstated just one detail of his phone call.
However, these documents show the conspiracy goes back even further to when Loretta Lynch was Attorney General.
There is no question Obama and his acolytes had it out for Lt. General Flynn.
In 2014 Obama forced out Flynn from his job as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency over Flynn’s contention that Obama failed to take the threat of radical Islamic terrorism seriously.
Once Flynn got involved with the Trump campaign, it appears high level Justice Department and FBI officials colluded to frame Flynn for a crime he didn’t commit.
