General Flynn was set up

Post by Credo ut intelligam » Thu Dec 13, 2018 12:14 am

Perhaps this will have little or no effect on Judge Emmet Sullivan's final decision on General Flynn's sentencing, but it's important to understand the suspicious nature of his case, which is one of the pillars of the Trump-Russia Collusion narrative and which, via Comey's illegal leaks, ultimately led to the Mueller investigation.

The Flynn Entrapment
A court filing shows the ugly tactics employed by James Comey’s FBI.
By the Editorial Board
Dec. 12, 2018 6:55 p.m. ET
Of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s many targets, the most tragic may be former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The former three-star general pleaded guilty last year to a single count of lying to the FBI about conversations he had with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. Now we learn from Mr. Flynn’s court filing to the sentencing judge that senior bureau officials acted in a way to set him up for the fall....

From today's Washington Post:

Federal judge seeks documents related to Michael Flynn’s January 2017 interview with FBI agents
A federal judge on Wednesday ordered both former national security adviser Michael Flynn and the special counsel to turn over additional investigative records describing his January 2017 interview with FBI agents — a conversation in which Flynn later admitted he lied.

In an order filed Wednesday evening, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan demanded to see the formal FBI records and all other relevant documents detailing Flynn’s interview with the agents in 2017 and agreed to review them under seal.

The judge’s request for more information could delay Flynn’s sentencing, which had been scheduled for Tuesday. He asked for documents to be turned over by Friday at 3 p.m.....

Why does he want these documents?

The FBI knew the content of the Flynn call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on December 29, 2016, because they were listening in and was intercepting those communications. James Comey admits (in interview yesterday) that he and Andrew McCabe sent over two agents to speak with Flynn, not letting him know what their real interest was.

Remember, as far as we know, the original interviewing agents did not think that Flynn was being deceptive. Keep following...

But it took the FBI SEVEN MONTHS to file their 302's on the Flynn interview? And the FBI testimony given to Congress in the months immediately following the interview was that Flynn didn't lie--but then in December he was charged for lying? Something's very fishy here...


I'm still not convinced that Flynn actually lied. Remember, he served as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the Obama administration. He had to know that any call he had with Amb. Kislyak was being monitored and transcribed. Knowing that, why would he lie to these FBI agents? There's something more to this case which still hasn't been revealed...

That must be why he plead guilty. Because he was really innocent.

Ignorance of the law is not an excuse to break the law. Flynn committed a crime. Got caught.

No elaborate rationalizations change that.

“I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right,” Mr. Flynn said. “My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the special counsel’s office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.”

Yes, but you must remember, the important thing is that Credo does't accept his acceptance of responsibility.

The prosecutor was wrong.

The Judge who took his plea and sentenced him was wrong.

The perpetrator was wrong when he confessed.

Everyone is wrong except Credo and our honest and trustworthy president. ](*,)

I knew that from the beginning. Flynn had some not so flattering things to say about the Obama regime and paid for with these false allegations. The Angry Dems on Mueller's team are vicious and it will all come out in the wash.
Liberalism is like an out-of-control 5 year old at McDonalds. All the talking to and admonishment won't make a difference. They have no concept of right or wrong, they are nothing more than narcissists.

Ouch, time for you to go on some sort of medication, Red.

Flynn completely confessed. No false allegations. The confession is above for you to read.

Mueller is a Republican. A highly decorated Marine. He put mobsters in jail for a living. He's an American hero.

Mueller is a GOP. Has been for some time.

Another post that makes no sense.

Wabash, what makes no sense is referring to a person as a GOP.

I know. In my opinion Flynn plead guilty because he is guilty.

Yes, Mueller felt that Flynn's crime was so egregious that he recommended no time of imprisonment. Flynn is just a scalp from a process crime (allegedly) to continue to breathe life into the rotten corpse of the Trump-Russia Colluison narrative.

Flynn is every bit the patriot (33 years in the military, 3-star General) as Mueller. But look at Mueller's time at the FBI. Full of incompetence (Anthrax case) and corruption (Uranium One; no-bid contracts given to Lockheed Martin when James Comey was working there...conflict of interest?).

If Comey's FBI wasn't trying to entrap Flynn, they might have some explaining to do about this:



Comey also admitted the other day he took advantage of the disarray of the new administration and "got away with" bypassing normal White House protocols in sending his agents over to interview Flynn.

None of which changes Flynn plea deal.

ICYMI, he plead guilty.
