Yesterday (May 07, 2020), the Justice Department has abandoned the prosecution of the retired Army general Michael Flynn after running “a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”
UPDATE May 13, 2020
Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order on Tuesday soliciting “Amicus Curiae” (“friend of the court”) briefs. Dan Bongino explains why Judge Sullivan goes against his own earlier ruling by doing so. (Full show.)
It’s hard to believe that this happened in the United States of America. General Michael Flynn’s life was forever changed. He had to sell his home. He faced financial ruin. His family was even threatened with prosecution.
It appears that, as Tucker Carlson said on his show, gen. Flynn was set-up by corrupt government officials, and his life destroyed because he was viewed as an obstacle in the way of taking pres. Trump and his administration down.
They know Michael Flynn is not a dangerous criminal. If he was a dangerous criminal they’d be working to free him from jail. No, they wanted Flynn crushed purely because he happened to be in the way of the power they seek.
Gen. Flynn is waiting for a judge presiding over his case to sign off on the motion by Justice Department to drop the case against him. Hopefully, all will be buttoned-up and gen. Flynn will be able to start to rebuild his life, including suing everybody responsible for his raw deal.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), discusses the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, what he discovered through his own investigation, Objective Medusa, and how this all led to Trump’s impeachment and acquittal.
Siraj Hashmi and Devin Nunes talk about counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, what Rep. Nunes discovered through his own investigation, Objective Medusa, and how this all led to Trump’s impeachment and acquittal.
From an interview with Rep. Devin Nunes: In response to Siraj Hashmi’s question about Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn:
First of all, what happened to Michael Flynn? Like how did this all transpire? His takedown, him being prosecuted, ultimately indicted and sort of found guilty.
Rep. Nunes said:
I believe he was targeted because he knew where all the bodies were buried and he knew that the Obama administration had seated here in Washington at the highest levels of the intelligence agencies a bunch of people that he knew were not up to par, he would have brought in a whole new crop of people, and of course, he was cut off at his knees before he even got started.
Interesting interview. Worth of watching, Rep. Nunes did most of the talking.
