BREAKING: Justice Department Drops Michael Flynn’s Case, Ending Deep State Witch Hunt Against the General
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced that they will be dropping the case against General Michael Flynn, which has been marred with corruption and improprieties from its inception.
The Flynn case was a feather in the cap of the special investigation conducted by FBI spook Robert Mueller into Russian collusion. The deep state had hoped to make an example of Flynn, secure a guilty plea from him, and then use it to justify their continued fishing expedition to damage President Donald Trump.
However, things did not turn out the way the entrenched bureaucrats planned. The DOJ announced on Thursday that it is dropping the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”
They came to the conclusion that Flynn’s interview with the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview taking place on January 24, 2017 was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”
Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney tasked with reviewing Flynn’s case, made the recommendation to Attorney General Bill Barr that the case be dismissed. Barr followed through with Jensen’s recommendation in a prompt fashion.
“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.”
Last week, President Trump declared that Flynn was “exonerated” due to the release of court documents showing how the FBI acted improperly throughout the case.
“He’s in the process of being exonerated. If you look at those notes from yesterday, that was total exoneration,” Trump said to reporters in the Oval Office after noting that the fake news was misreporting the details in the case. “These were dirty, filthy cops at the top of the FBI.”
“He is essentially exonerated,” Trump continued. “Now, that’s not official yet, but when you read the notes, how can you do anything else?”
Big League Politics has reported on the Flynn case from the start throughout the embattled military hero’s push for justice against a corrupt system gamed to destroy his good name:
Flynn attorney Sidney Powell filed a 27-page brief on Wednesday regarding “egregious government misconduct” in the case against Flynn, calling for its dismissal “in the interest of justice.” She points to new exculpatory documents that had been previously withheld by the feds as well as the IG report detailing abuses of the FISA secret court system.
Powell lays out evidence in his filing that indicates the feds lied to Flynn, “framed” him, hid evidence that may have helped Flynn, and demonstrated “contempt for the law at every turn” in how they pursued their case against the retired three-star Army general.
The feds are now considering the possibility of letting Flynn off with probation rather than jail time based off of his previous guilty plea, which he is now attempting to withdraw claiming that he was offered a deal in bad faith by prosecutors.
“In truth, I never lied,” Flynn wrote in a his motion to withdraw his guilty plea that was also filed on Wednesday, according to Fox News. “My guilty plea has rankled me throughout this process, and while I allowed myself to succumb to the threats from the government to save my family, I believe I was grossly misled about what really happened.”
Flynn’s lawyer maintains that her client is completely innocent. Powell claims that the “IG Report is replete with exculpatory information that, had it been known to Mr. Flynn, he never would have pled guilty.”
Powell also alleges that Flynn’s previous lawyers worked against her client and “grossly misled” Flynn presumably at the behest of the FBI…
Former FBI chief James Comey even admitted that how he sent investigators to ensnare an unsuspecting Flynn over the course of the witch hunt. It was “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more … organized administration,” Comey admitted in 2018.
The dismissal of Flynn’s case shows that the rule of law isn’t completely dead in America. President Trump and his supporters have been vindicated while the xenophobic Russian collusion conspiracists have been rebuked.
