General Flynn was Railroaded by the FBI, and Crooked James Comey was the Conductor
Retired General and fired National Security Director Michael Flynn has been like a fly in amber for nearly three years. He has seen his reputation destroyed, his family’s security ruined, and his cash resources drained through legal fees.
And for what? It was because he fell into a perjury trap set by then-FBI director James Comey.
James Comey’s role as the leading deep state player hoping to sabotage President Trump is a shameful chronicle of a colossal degree of arrogance and ego. He sprung his trap on Michael Flynn in January 2017. Two FBI agents visited Flynn in the White House for an impromptu interview.
“I sent them,” Comey bragged to MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace a year later.
Aren’t FBI interviews coordinated through the White House Counsel?
Actually, the interview was arranged directly with Michael Flynn. Comey characterized the incident as “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away within a more…organized administration.”
As things turned out, President Trump was organized enough to fire the two-faced director. Since that firing, Comey has been struggling mightily to salvage the shards of his blasted reputation. In fact, the damage he did to the country’s most respected law enforcement agencies could take decades to repair.
For Gen. Michael Flynn, the damage continues. He naively granted the interview, which resulted in one of the few accomplishments of the shameful Mueller investigation. After caving in to threats of having his son prosecuted, he agreed to plead guilty to lying to the FBI. He was supposed to be the Mueller investigator’s ace in the hole during a Russia collusion investigation that went nowhere.
However, the truth sometimes has a way of repairing injustice. Newly released FBI files show that top FBI officials were planning to entrap the President’s National Security Advisor. One of the handwritten notes read, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
The explosive materials clearly show that the agents were never concerned about any contacts that Flynn might have had with the Russian ambassador. Their purpose was just a pretext to get him to lie.
Then there was a bombshell admission of the FBI’s plan to entrap Gen. Flynn, “If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ + have them decide.” One constitutional lawyer, Jonathan Turley tweeted, “The reference to the Logan Act is particularly chilling. It suggests the use of a flagrantly unconstitutional act to trap a top Trump official.”
The problem is that prosecutors and FBI agents don’t have to play fair, especially after they scam a person into pleading guilty. Once the plea is in, exculpatory material is moot, at least according to one federal judge who ruled on this issue.
It looks like the remedy to this ridiculous Catch 22 will be President Trump. He is furious over the recent revelations. He tweeted, “What happened to General Michael Flynn, a war hero, should never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again!”
With the outcome with Flynn’s criminal case still pending, President Trump is unlikely to pardon his former administration official just yet. According to multiple sources, these newly released FBI notes are not the last of it. More exculpatory documents are to come.
Attorney General Bill Barr has promised a full investigation of FBI misconduct in the Russia collusion scam. It’s seeming more and more likely that James Comey could end up being the tallest and most famous person hosted by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
