(Liberty Bell) – This week, files were unsealed in the Michael Flynn case which confirmed what we’ve known all along.
The General and war hero was set up by a crooked Obama FBI. What else is new?
The documents reveal that FBI officials discussed trying to get the former national security adviser to lie and thus frame him.
These unsealed files have reportedly bolstered the “serious case” that the Justice Department is building against the FBI and DOJ officials who carried out the “Russia collusion” counter-intelligence probe of the 2016 Trump campaign.
Sources who spoke with Fox News said that charges may be justified against officials in the Obama DOJ and FBI, and that Attorney General Bill Barr is regularly in contact with US Attorney John Durham, who has been leading the investigation into the origins of Spygate.
“Durham has seen all of this already,” a source told Fox News. They added that the Flynn evidence “could be sufficient for some charges against agents.”
“It’s a crime to present under oath false or misleading information,” the source told Fox News. “Not to mention obstruction of justice.”
“They’re building a very serious case,” another source told the network.
Among the evidence unsealed this week in the Flynn case is the explosive handwritten note by the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, who showed agents discussing whether they should attempt “to get [Flynn] to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”
A memo also shows that the notorious former FBI agent Peter Strzok reopened the investigation into Flynn after it had been closed due to a lack of evidence.
The case had been closed three weeks before the well-known “ambush” interview of Flynn at the White House which resulted in him being charged with perjury.
In 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI regarding his communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. But after firing his lawyers, a new legal team moved to withdraw the plea, armed with evidence it claimed would show that Flynn was framed.
Barr initially commissioned Durham to review the events during the 2016 campaign and through Trump’s Jan. 20, 2017, inauguration. But Durham has since expanded the scope to the spring of 2017, when Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel.
Sources who spoke with Fox News revealed that we can expect more exculpatory documents to be revealed as Barr continues to monitor the investigation.
“Barr talks to Durham every day,” a source said. “The president has been briefed that the case is being pursued, and it’s serious.”
Priestap took his notes after a meeting and before the Flynn interview with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who are now familiar characters in the Spygate scandal.
The notes suggest that agents considered getting the general to “to admit to breaking the Logan Act” during his conversation with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the transition period before Trump’s inauguration.
The obscure Logan Act has never been successfully used in a criminal prosecution. It’s purpose is to prevent individuals from falsely claiming to represent the United States government abroad.
Very worthy of note, a source who spoke with Fox News said it’s “disturbing to Durham” that “there weren’t any whistleblowers” in Obama’s FBI and Justice Department who came forward at the beginning of the Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence probe.
According to another source, Durham’s investigation could end as soon as July, but one source said it could be as soon as September and noted that progress could be hindered by the coronavirus pandemic (convenient, eh?).
“If they don’t have it, they’re not going to bring it,” another source told Fox News. “But they think they’ve got it.”
