This has been a big news day, with a lot of great things happening.
But definitely the biggest news has to be the decision I reported on earlier today, the decision by the DOJ to drop its case against Gen. Michael Flynn.
The Justice Department said it had concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview on January 24, 2017 was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.” [….]
“Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case,” Jensen said in a statement. “I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”
This was after Jensen investigated the case and, in the process, the DOJ found handwritten FBI notes that showed the effort to trap Flynn during his interview: “What’s our goal? Truth/admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” the official wrote.
Documents also dropped tying Barack Obama into the effort against Flynn as well, showing in a meeting on Jan. 5, that he was aware of the call with the Russian Ambassador and that he informed former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates about it with former FBI Director James Comey.
“After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation,’” it continues.
Now, in spite of all the efforts against him, despite years of legal fees depleting his funds, Flynn has always kept the hope alive that truth would out.
After the documents about the effort to trap him were finally revealed last week, he posted this image.
