Department of Justice drops its case against Michael Flynn

May 7, 2020

  After a very bad week or so for the FBI which included but was not limited to the revelations that the FBI discussed trying to trick Michael Flynn into lying and trying to get him fired, and that the agency was set to drop its investigation into Michael Flynn before Peter Strzok convinced the agency to wait and this gave him time to alter notes of the FBI’s meeting with Michael Flynn to make him appear guilty, we are now learning the Department of Justice is dropping its case against him. Here is more:

The Justice Department on Thursday said it is dropping the criminal case against President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, abandoning a prosecution that became a rallying cry for the president and his supporters in attacking the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation.

The action was a stunning reversal for one of the signature cases brought by special counsel Robert Mueller. It comes even though prosecutors for the past three years have maintained that Flynn lied to the FBI in a January 2017 interview about his conversations with the Russian ambassador.

In court documents filed Thursday, the Justice Department said that after reviewing newly disclosed information and other materials, it agreed with Flynn’s lawyers that his interview with the FBI should never have taken place because he had not had inappropriate contacts with Russians. The interview, the department said, was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”

Jensen said in a statement: “Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case. I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

  Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI only after he could not afford to fight the battle any more and after the FBI threatened to investigate his family next. At this point Michael Flynn made the decision to sacrifice himself so that his family would not have to go through any more hell than they already had.

  What the FBI did in this case was sickening and it showed the agency will stop at nothing to pursue a political agenda and while it is all very well and good the FBI is dropping the case heads must roll and a major lawsuit should be coming.

  To paraphrase an old question, where does Michael Flynn go to get his reputation back?

    Yup, it’s a new low for the FBI. Even Hoover stopped at disinformation campaigns (was on medically prescribed speed at the time) and never actually framed an innocent man to promote a political agenda.

    In another set of commentaries, someone suggested that Trump ought to make Flynn the new FBI Director. Probably not practical, but the idea makes me smile.

    Another step in draining the swamp.

      That’s probably not going to happen but it does make me smile too. To think what they did to this man and then to think they could do it to anybody is scary. Most people would not have been able to get out of this, Flynn is the exception, most people would have gone to jail for a long time.

      He seems a little nervous and there is talk something is going to drop today that exposes him. We can only hope this is true and is the beginning of the end of them.
