In what can now only be described as a travesty of justice against an American hero, the FBI, with apparent activist agents went after Flynn, not to find the truth, instead, to set him in a trap to get him fired from his job as National Security advisor.
Explosive new internal FBI documents unsealed Wednesday show that top bureau officials discussed their motivations for interviewing then-national security adviser Michael Flynn in the White House in January 2017 — and openly questioned if their “goal” was “to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”
The handwritten notes — written by the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap after a meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Fox News is told — further suggested that agents planned in the alternative to get Flynn “to admit to breaking the Logan Act” when he spoke to then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.
The problem here is two-fold. First, every administration, while waiting to come into power, walks a fine line between setting up their policy and sitting back to allow the current administration to continue theirs. With every administration, the incoming officials reach out to foreign leaders, diplomats, all trying to get a relationship established so they can hit the ground running.
In many cases there are tacit understandings of where the administration is headed, the foreign leaders know this, This is how things have been done for 200+ years, but now we had the FBI trying to lay a trap for a Logan Act violation.
The Logan Act is an obscure statute that has never been used in a criminal prosecution; enacted in 1799 in an era before telephones, it was intended to prevent individuals from falsely claiming to represent the United States government abroad.
What was more, a violation of this act was John Kerry after he was out of the office of Secretary Of State, went to Abbas, Iran and other leaders, when no longer in a position to make any deals, and tried to work out back door diplomacy that conflicted with this current administration.
“What is our goal?” one of the notes read. “Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
What we see here is not looking into a criminal investigation. Instead, the beginnings of sabotage of an incoming administration before they even stepped into the office, that is a huge problem.
No investigation is intended to affect what is the government, but what we have here is a guide to attack Flynn, they talked about hiding this from Trump and his Chief of Staff at the time, that is not done, any investigation, even if it is on an incoming administration is exposed to the incoming C&C. This is not what the FBI intended; this is shown in the memo Strzok sent to his fellow investigators.
What is more, you have Lisa Page, who has nothing to do with this investigation; she is e-mailing Strzok on how to investigate an incoming administration official.
It is obvious to conduct something like this; this was not done without the Director’s knowledge, nor would have been done without supervision from higher-ups, this would bring James Comey and his boss, Loretta Lynch. What needs to be determined, and as I wrote about A.G. Barr the other day, this has been investigated, the corruption was so rampant that this could go all the way up to Obama.
What is more, we found out late last night with Breitbart that Biden was involved with this, he knew of the Steele dossier, was involved in the briefing about it with Comey.
Flynn has sought to withdraw his guilty plea and has been seeking exoneration, saying the FBI engaged in “egregious misconduct.” Flynn, who has said more recently that he did not lie to the FBI, pleaded guilty in late 2017 as mounting legal fees pushed him to sell his home. Prosecutors have suggested Flynn’s guilty plea allowed him to escape liability for a possible charge under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), another little-known and once-rarely used law, for his alleged work in Turkey.
“It’s just absolutely appalling what these agents, and then special counsel operatives, did to General Flynn,” Powell told Fox News’ “Hannity” on Wednesday night. “It’s abuse of their authority at every turn.”
“I interpret the notes as absolutely damning of their conduct and their plan,” Powell went on. “They rejected the advice of the apparent lawyer who wrote on the handwritten note that they not play games with the White House and instead that is exactly what they did.
“Their standard practice in other cases [is] to warn of a [Section] 1001 violation [for making false statements to federal investigators],” Powell continued. “None of that applied to General Flynn. They had only special violations, of every protocol known for him because they were determined to take him out.”
This is why Strzok found himself fired, but we also know that Comey, Lynch, and now Biden was involved, this is going to set up problems, just as we saw with the Ukraine investigation, if Trump tells the DOJ to gather up evidence on Biden, the Democrats, with Pelosi are going to bring another impeachment claiming that Trump is interfering with the election.
What is ironic about all this, what does she and the Democrats think Comey, Biden, Lynch, Strzok and others were doing? Of course, this was done against a hated Republican, that justifies the action in the eyes of the left, it simply does not matter if laws were violated, if sedition or worse, treason were committed, it was all in the cause of what they saw as the better good.
