Gen. Flynn Exonerated; Trump Blames Obama Administration: ‘Human Scum’

Posted on | May 7, 2020 | 2 Comments


Big news about a victim of the “Russian collusion” hoax:

The Justice Department on Thursday dropped its criminal case against President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
In court documents, the Justice Department said it dropped the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”
A proposed order presented to US District Judge Emmet Sullivan would dismiss the case “with prejudice,” meaning the same charges cannot be brought in the future. . . .
In its filing, the Justice Department said it concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview on Jan. 24, 2017, was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”
Earlier Thursday, federal prosecutor Brandon Van Grack withdrew from the case.
The US attorney reviewing the Flynn case, Jeff Jensen, recommended the move to Attorney General William Barr last week and formalized the recommendation in a document this week.

Trump reacted characteristically:

“He was an innocent man. . . . He was targeted by the Obama administration and he was targeted in order to try and take down a president. What they’ve done is a disgrace and I hope a big price is going to be paid. . . . What they did, what the Obama administration did, is unprecedented. . . . I hope a lot of people are going to pay a big price because they’re dishonest, crooked people. . . . They’re human scum. This should never have happened in this country.”

Gee, Mr. President, why don’t you tell us how you really feel?

    […] What’s interesting here is when Obama says that the dropping of the charges against Flynn has been “somewhat downplayed” in the news, which tells me that he must be watching CNN, because if you’re watching Fox News, this story has gotten heavy coverage there. Why would this story be “somewhat downplayed” by whatever media Obama watches? […]
