Trump: Flynn was A Victim of the Greatest Political Crime in American History

President Donald Trump unloaded on critics and the former Obama Administration in a series of tweets over the weekend, suggesting his predecessors acted criminally in their attempts to discredit former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“The biggest political crime in American history, by far!” the president tweeted.

Last Thursday, the Department of Justice dropped its case against Flynn after internal memos were released that caused major concern about the legality of the investigation of Flynn in 2017.

DOJ Officials indicated via a court filing that “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information,” they had concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn.” In addition, the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”

The top prosecutor on the case, Brandon Van Grack, withdrew from the case without explanation at all, in a brief filing with the court. Documents unsealed last week by the Justice Department revealed agents discussed their motivations for interviewing Flynn in the Russia probe – and discussed whether they wanted to “get him to lie” so he would be fired or even prosecuted. Allies argued he had been set up in a perjury trap. While Flynn did not admit wrongdoing in that interview, he was accused of lying about his contacts with the then-Russian ambassador – to which he pleaded guilty.

Flynn has been trying for months to withdraw his plea and hired a new lawyer to aggressively challenge the prosecution’s case and conduct. There has been no resolution since his original plea, and the case seems to be stuck in the system, even amid speculation about a presidential pardon.

Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney who reviewed the Flynn case, recommended dropping the case to Attorney General William Barr last week and formalized the recommendation this week after internal memos that were released raised concerns about the nature of the investigation.

“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.”

President Trump’s reaction from the White House just minutes after the news from the DOJ surfaced, was a mixture of triumph and disgust towards the unprecedented situation. The president praised his former national security adviser, but also criticized former President Barack Obama and his administration after learning that the Justice Department had dropped its case against Flynn.

“He was an innocent man… Now, in my book, he is an even greater warrior,” Trump said, while criticizing Obama administration officials. “They’re human scum. … It’s treason.”

Trump says he has always believed in Flynn. Even when Flynn resigned from his White House position in 2017 as he was accused of misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other senior White House officials, Trump posted messages of support on his social media account and defended his exit from the White House saying that despite Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI, his actions were lawful.

“I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI,” Trump posted. “He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!”

  1. True, General Flynn was a victim of a corrupt administration but the fact is, we as Americans are all victims of this corruption. If the rule of law does not apply to every person that runs afoul of it, then there can be no justice or liberty at all, only tyranny.

    1. To which rule of law do you subscribe? The rule of the left which says that once a Trump appointee is charged, he should be sentenced. The rule of the right which says you should have a crime to investigate before you investigate rather than the Beria criterion–investigate a person and I’ll find a crime.

    2. OBAMA AND ALL HIS GOONS FOR TREASON,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
      AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2020, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT
      “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

  2. well hopefully in regards to the purge against the president by the dimocrats re their previous remarks re the russia colusion as most of them stated all on record no one is above the law lets see if that is the case when they are facing the judges in a court case whether it be civil or military tribunal,
    in my heart of heart gen flynn is a man of honour and commitment and clear his good name

      1. demon rats will not win 2020 election, only a true fool will ever again vote for even one criminal demonrats…………….

  3. My concern and should be the concern of all Americans. If the Democrats will go to such lengths to lie, cheat, make up or whatever, to get an honest man like General Flynn someone who defended this country to get him charged and put in prison. Just so they can get rid of Trump , it shows they don’t care about us and their hatred is totally out of control. Why should we not go after each and everyone of them and charge them with treason and send them all to prison. They don’t deserve to be called Americans.
    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND VICE PRESIDENT PENCE. TRUMP IN 2020!

  4. Perhaps the Obama DOJ (L Lynch, Holder, etc.) and FBI (Comey, McCabe, Strozk, Page, etc. etc.) should have gone after a Ham Sandwich ! General Flynn was extorted by the FBI to plead guilty to making false statements to keep the FBI from going after his son. The FBI ruined Gen. Flynn financially by going after him for years because the Obama administration did not like his position on the Benghazzi fiasco ! The old adage of the FBI is: “you point out the person,we will eventually find a crime to match that person” ! Comey was no Edgar J. Hoover who was much more successful ! The Comey / Obama FBI / DOJ was as haven for criminal conduct ! How about Holder and operation “Fast and Furious”

  5. The Obama presidency was full of lies, deceptions and smoke and mirrors. The real criminals sat in the white house, Obama, Biden, FBI, NSA, CIA and the deep state scum. They all tried to bury General Flynn for nothing except to save there own hides. We now see an attempt to over through our government just like a third world country. However, the truth is coming out now, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the listed agencies with the help of Obama wanted to remove Trump from office with lies that the democrats in congress kept spewing. We the People will remove all the liars we can in November by voting for President Trump and the Republican team so we can keep our Liberties and Freedom. It is also time to remove socialism classes from our school’s and teach the truth of the history of America including the good and bad.

  6. For most people who know the definition of the charge of TREASON, this should be a “NO BRAINIER”. Any attempt to discredit a legal political candidate and overthrow a sitting legally elected US President using the power of government is clearly TREASON. This should be taken seriously by every US Citizens who values their freedom and Rule of Law. If this can happen in a nation that claims a person is “innocent until proven guilty” no one in the US is safe from their government. Those who drafted our US Constitution warned future generations of ABUSE OF POWER. ABUSE OF POWER by the British King is why the US declared it’s independence from England. The nation does not have to be Islamic, have a King, or have a Dictator to ABUSE IT’S POWER. We have the US Constitution to insure the government does NOT ABUSE IT’S POWER. When “We the people…” allow the US Constitution and it’s Rule of Law to be ABUSED by corrupted politicians corrupt the Rule of Law meant to protect the citizens. There is no longer “equal justice under the law”. This is why we have a “double standard” concerning the law today. If you are Political Correct you are protected, if you are not you have no rights. Political Correctness corrupts Rule of Law, thus the TRAITORS who attempted to remove Donald Trump clearly committed TREASON. Their actions had nothing to do with equality but everything to do with their HATE FOR Trump and POWER. If you CAN NOT see this you deserve to lose your freedom the law insures you should have. If people can conspire against a sitting President these same people can conspire against ANY US CITIZENS. Flynn was one of many targets by these TRAITORS. From our local government to the White House, any government who uses it power against the citizens then these governments are clearly TRAITORS to the people they were meant to serve.

  7. Those WHOM trust the DEMOCRATIC PARTY, have no thoughts of FREEDOM, because they can not comprehend what FREEDOM is!, they believe what their being told bye, and follow those WHOM would use lies & deception too coral them. God Bless America. GO PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  8. TRUMP 2020. he has proposed to drain the swamp and has done some of this. i never realized that the swamp was this big and the FLYNN case is showing just how much scum is associated with the dumbocratic part.. the left is scared. who’s next. it is the reason for their diversion and deflection. obama created this shit and should be tried and convicted

  9. I want to know why they are not doing something about these people they are all un America and Biden is still allowed to run for President come on we the people want justice we were lied to by President Obama and his group including being impeached with tax payers money come on let get the ball rolling there needs to be heads rolling this is worst than what Richard Nixon did come on I don’t want this to be swept under the Capet they need to pay. Including FBI all involved enough I see now why nothing was done to The Clinton’s!

  10. I hope and pray that now he is free to do so, President Trump will make absolutely sure that full – even “excessive” compensation is awarded to ALL in General Mike Flynns’ immediate and wider Family for a remedy to all the unlawful, even treasonous activities that have been imposed upon him and them over the last few years.
    Where at all possible this should include punitive and vast amounts to be paid from the personal accounts and properties of ALL those who conspired against both General Flynn and President Trump – including the last “President” a certain Mister Barack Obama unless he can prove without a shadow of a doubt that “He was not involved even borderline in the conspiracy ” something with astronomically high situational odds against having ever existed ! If his lips move – he is lieing – the same criteria he enplaced against Mike Flynn !
    JUSTICE COSTS MONEY – VAST AMOUNTS OF IT – PAY UP NOW “DEMOCRATS” !!!
