The Departement of Justice has dropped all charges against General Michael Flynn, after an internal memo from the FBI questioning whether they wanted to “get him to lie” so he’d be fired or prosecuted, or get him to admit wrongdoing. The court filing alludes to specific targeting of Flynn “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”
General Flynn, in defending himself, has incurred over $6 million in legal fees and has been forced to sell his house. Commentators have said that it is unlikely that he will be able to re-coop any of those fees.
GMAC Note: DOJ Attorney Brandon Van Grack withdraws the case against retired LTG Flynn as Brady and Giglio material is being released.
My guess is that Van Grack is going to say that he withdrew from the case once he became aware of the Brady material, and therefore throw Strzok and Page et al under the bus to save his own skin from ethics charges
Editor’s note: Think about it. The Obama Administration had corrupt elements willing to use the power of the Federal Government against Obama’s political opponents. They used the authority of America’s top law enforcement agency to target Flynn “without any investigative basis” solely because he was an appointee by incoming President Trump. Further, the prosecutors withheld exculpatory evidence, FBI documents that would have helped Flynn’s defense. This is highly illegal, immoral and corrupt.
Never mind the IRS targeting of conservative institutions, never mind the corruption that kept Hillary out of jail and the other corruptions we have covered through the Obama years.
The corruption of law enforcement to entrap political opponents is a tactic of dictators. It is how the likes of Xi, Putin and Maduro stay in power.
And it is the thing that our found fathers feared most.
“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson
If people don’t go to jail for this, then I sincerely fear for America.
