Michael Flynn Was Set-up By the Deep State

The country we live in today barely even resembles our idea of America anymore:

“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.

Not a rich man after decades in uniform, Mr. Flynn pleaded guilty to avoid bankruptcy and spare his son from becoming a legal target.”

Of course he’s not rich. Democrats may be surprised about this because to them, public office is a springboard to riches, but Michael Flynn did not parlay his name and rank into riches like so many people like him do.

“Mr. Flynn’s filing doesn’t take issue with the description of his offense. But the “additional facts” the Flynn defense team flags for the court raise doubts about FBI conduct.”

The FBI railroaded Flynn, ending his tenure as National Security Adviser before it even really began. Then, when Flynn was forced out because of the FBI’s dirty tricks, the arguably-more-despicable “mainstream” media then seized on the Flynn story to build its false narrative of a Trump White House beset by scandal and full of criminals.

The only collusion that took place was that between the Obama Intelligence Community and the “mainstream” media.

“The Flynn filing describes government documents concerning the Jan. 24, 2017 meeting with two FBI agents when Mr. Flynn supposedly lied. It turns out the meeting was set up by then Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who personally called Mr. Flynn that day on other business—to discuss an FBI training session. By Mr. McCabe’s account, on that call he told Mr. Flynn he “felt that we needed to have two of our agents sit down” with him to talk about his Russia communications.

Mr. McCabe then urged Mr. Flynn to meet without a lawyer present. “I explained that I thought the quickest way to get this done was to have a conversation between [Mr. Flynn] and the agents only. I further stated that if LTG Flynn wished to include anyone else in the meeting, like the White House Counsel for instance, that I would need to involve the Department of Justice. [Mr. Flynn] stated that this would not be necessary and agreed to meet with the agents without any additional participants,” wrote Mr. McCabe in a memo viewed by the Flynn defense team.”

Michael Flynn, like any true American patriot, believed in the inherent goodness of his country and government. He probably never suspected he was being set up by hostile, subversive, traitorous snakes trying to destroy him and ultimately overthrow the newly-elected President.

According to the FBI summary of the interview—known as a 302—Mr. McCabe and FBI officials “decided the agents would not warn Flynn that it was a crime to lie during an FBI interview because they wanted Flynn to be relaxed and they were concerned that giving the warnings might adversely affect the rapport.”

We also know from then FBI Director James Comey that this was his idea. This is “something I probably wouldn’t have done or wouldn’t have gotten away with in a more organized administration,” Mr. Comey boasted on MSNBC this weekend. “In the George W. Bush Administration or the Obama Administration, if the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House counsel, there would be discussions and approvals and who would be there. And I thought, it’s early enough let’s just send a couple guys over.”

Predatory mindset. The Obama FBI was run by vicious, traitorous predators.

Flynn probably never suspected the FBI was trying to set him up. And they took full advantage of his naivete.

“If the goal was to set a legal trap, it worked. The two agents showed up at the White House within hours of Mr. McCabe’s call, and they reported in the 302 that General Flynn had been “relaxed and jocular” and “clearly saw the FBI agents as allies.” One of the agents was Peter Strzok, who is famous for his anti-Trump texts to his FBI paramour.”

The tragic saga of Michael Flynn was one of good vs. evil. The FBI preyed on Flynn’s assumption that the US government was in the hands of good people.

“The FBI agents had seen transcripts of Mr. Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador that were “unmasked” by Obama Administration officials. The 302 says that rather than flag this and ask Mr. Flynn for an explanation, the FBI agents decided before the meeting that if “Flynn said he did not remember something they knew he said, they would use the exact words Flynn used, . . . to try to refresh his recollection. If Flynn still would not confirm what he said, . . . they would not confront him or talk him through it.”

A complete set-up.

“Keep in mind the FBI’s counterintelligence probe into Russia and the Trump campaign was still secret. Mr. Flynn had done nothing wrong in conversing with the Russian ambassador—it was part of his job—and he had no reason to believe he was in legal jeopardy. He initially claimed he misremembered what was discussed, which is more believable than that a highly decorated officer would lie to FBI officers he agreed to see without counsel.”

Of course Flynn wouldn’t remember every detail of his conversation with Kislyak–Flynn didn’t think the conversation was a big deal. He wasn’t “colluding,” nor was there ever any collusion, so of course it wasn’t a big deal to Flynn. In contrast, a criminal who  had discussed COLLUSION and SECRET SCHEMES would probably have a full recollection of the conversation.

Mr. Flynn’s lawyers are requesting probation and community service, though the facts suggest the judge should question the entire plea deal. Messrs. McCabe and Strzok have both been fired for misconduct, and their behavior reeks of entrapment.

If he does nothing else, President Trump has an obligation to former aides like Michael Flynn and to the public to declassify and disclose the FBI documents related to the FBI’s Russia probe.

Trump should pardon Flynn and, not only that, bring him back on board in the White House in some capacity.

Michael Flynn deserves to be able to serve his country, which is all he wanted to do from the start. He also deserves to be gainfully employed so that he can begin to dig himself out of the financial hole the diabolical Deep State deliberately and maliciously buried him in. Finally, Flynn deserves to be able to rehabilitate his good name.

The Deep State–Comey, Strzok, Mueller, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper and all the rest–are flat-out evil. Honestly, they should be hung for treason.

The only part of this story to take solace in is the fact that the Deep State’s treachery was ultimately exposed.

Our country isn’t completely gone.

Mueller Update: $30 Million Spent to Uncover a $130,000 “Campaign Finance” Non-Crime

Even the most conservative estimates have pegged the total cost of the Mueller investigation at $20,000,000 minimum, and that’s from seven months ago. Figure that if Mueller’s investigation cost $20 million over the first full year, it’s at least cost another $10 million in the past half year.

And what have we gotten for it? What has that $30,000,000 gotten us?

There’s no Russian collusion, there’s no obstruction of justice. They’ve all but given up on those angles.

But because they just know Donald Trump is guilty of something, the latest impeachment straw the Dems are grasping at is “campaign finance violations“:

“Federal prosecutors in New York said Friday that Trump directed his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, during the 2016 campaign to make illegal payments to two women claiming they had affairs with Trump.

“Illegal”? My ass.

“Earlier Sunday on “State of the Union,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said that those offenses would “certainly” be impeachable offenses.

What an idiot.

If this is “impeachable,” then we need to throw Barack Obama in prison:

“Cohen may well have to pay far more than the existing record federal elections commission fine of $375,000 involving 1,300 undisclosed contributions levied on the 2008 Barack Obama campaign—an event generally ignored by the media given the extenuating hurrahs of 2009.”

It was the largest penalty ever levied by the FEC on a Presidential campaign, meaning Obama’s 2008 campaign committed the single largest campaign finance violation in the history of the United States.

Go fuck yourself, Jerry Nadler.

Apparently, however, ultra-partisan federal attorneys in the Southern District of New York are going to ignore all precedent and indict Trump under the “ORANGE MAN BAD” section of the US code:

“Scott has described Andy McCarthy’s article “Why Trump is likely to be indicted by Manhattan US Attorney.” McCarthy does the heavy lifting associated with a legal analysis of whether Trump has, in fact, violated campaign finance law, as the Manhattan U.S. Attorney seems to believe.

[. . .] Justice Department guidance holds that a sitting president may not be indicted. If prosecutors in the Southern District of New York decide nonetheless to indict Trump for a campaign finance infraction, the Attorney General (presumably William Barr) should overrule the prosecutors. Justice Department policy shouldn’t be ignored or overturned to prosecute the kind of case that, according to McCarthy, is “often settled by payment of an administrative fine, not turned into [a] felony prosecution[].”

They are so ridiculously corrupt it’s unbelievable. They have literally no shame or morals whatsoever. They know this is all horseshit, and yet they keep pushing it.

Thirty million dollars for a campaign finance “violation” that nobody but a few shameless partisans in the SDNY give a shit about.

“House Democrats might seize on the alleged campaign finance violations as a basis for impeaching Trump. But McCarthy asks, “Do campaign finance violations qualify as ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ which is the constitutional standard for impeachment?” I agree with his answer:

‘It is hard to imagine an infraction that the Justice Department often elects not to prosecute is sufficiently egregious to rise to that level, but the debate on this point between partisans would be intense.’

The prosecutors understand this problem, and want to preempt the argument that they are going after Trump on a mere technicality. That, I think, is why, reportedly, they are spinning the alleged campaign finance violation as Trump “defrauding” voters. They want us to believe that, unlike a technical violation that marginally increases a candidate’s war chest, this violation deprived the electorate of important information about Trump’s behavior.

But the public has no right to know with whom a political candidate has had sex. If it did, all candidates would be required to disclose this. Thus, although Trump’s alleged finance violation does differ from normal ones, it’s ludicrous to claim that voters were defrauded because they lost the opportunity to learn about Trump’s extra-marital sex life.”

Yes, candidates should be required to disclose every person they’ve had sex with. We need full and complete transparency. Of course if that were the case, we’d also find out about all the men Barack Obama had sex with in Chicago gay bathhouses.

Hey, just because the media only wants to focus on the rumors about Trump’s affairs doesn’t make them any more legitimate than the rumors about Obama’s secret gay life they did their best to ignore and hide from the public.

It’s also quite convenient that the Democrats were not pushing this angle in 1992 when Bill Clinton was running for President and the “bimbo eruptions” were popping up left and right. In fact, back then, Dems were arguing precisely the opposite.

The Democrats knew there was no Russian collusion from the start, and in fact they were the ones who began the rumor in the first place–yet they used it as their pretext to demand an unchecked special counsel investigation that has wasted over $30 million. Mueller has known all along he was never going to find any “collusion.”

They’re just despicable people. Truly horrible.

America’s New Normal: Annoy the Deep State, Get Framed for Sex Crimes

You may have heard recently about the claims against Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard law professor who has emerged as one of President Trump’s legal defenders. Dershowitz has been fantastic in exposing the corruption and treachery of the Mueller investigation and the whole witch hunt which is currently making a mockery of our legal system and turning America into a police state before our eyes.

So of course it was only a matter of time until The Powers That Be attempted to destroy Dershowitz’s reputation and career. The allegation was that Dershowitz had an ongoing sexual relationship with an underage girl at billionaire pedophile Jeffery Epstein’s South Florida island estate.

The claim was a total fabrication. Fortunately, Dershowitz fought loudly and relentlessly against the despicable attempt to defame his good character. He has not only denied but disproved the claims against himself and protected his good name:

“In your recent story titled “Trump boosts Alan Dershowitz as report alleges lawyer was involved in sexual encounters with minors” you level outright false claims that “while working as Epstein’s lawyer, Dershowitz engaged in sexual encounters with underage girls.” While you misleadingly use the plural “girls,” the accusation you refer to is one that claims I had sexual encounters with Virginia Roberts. These are exactly the same false claims that were made in 2014 and were thoroughly disproved and withdrawn.

After leveling these claims in detail, you say that I “vehemently denied the accusations.”

Not only did I deny the claims, I conclusively disproved them. I produced my travel, phone, credit card, and TV appearance records conclusively proving I could not have been and was not in any of the places Roberts claims I was during the time that she knew Epstein. The former director of the FBI, assisted by a former assistant U.S. attorney and a chief federal marshal, reviewed these records and the other evidence and concluded that “the totality of the evidence found during the investigation refutes the allegations.” The judge struck Roberts’ affidavit and sanctioned her lawyers for filing it, and her lawyers then withdrew their accusation admitting that it was a mistake. After reviewing the evidence, ABC News canceled their plan to show an interview with Roberts because she was not credible.

There is other evidence, currently under seal, that directly establishes my innocence. I am seeking to unseal emails between Roberts and a journalist, a book manuscript by Roberts and a legal brief that are smoking guns showing that I was “deliberately framed for financial reasons.”

Financial and political reasons. But Dershowitz doesn’t want to open that can of worms apparently. That’s his choice.

The only reason this is happening to Alan Dershowitz is because he has become one of President Trump’s most capable defenders. He’s consistently called out the bullshit claims against Trump–from “obstruction of justice” to “collusion” and others–and is now being punished for his defiance of the Deep State.

There is no other reason.

Had Dershowitz remained a partisan liberal Democrat, he would have never been hit with these false accusations of being a sex criminal.

Of course, when it came to allegations against Dershowitz, the media chorus was that we must #BelieveWomen and presume Dershowitz’s guilt.

It was a different story when #MeToo allegations came out against famous lefty #Scientist Neil DeGrasse Tyson:

It’s amazing how shamelessly they flip the BELIEVE ALL WOMEN/Demand Evidence switch based on whether the target is a Republican or a Democrat.

The bottom line, as we saw with Brett Kavanaugh and even Donald Trump during the campaign, is that when you become too big of a problem for the Establishment, they will simply frame you for sex crimes in an effort to destroy you.

This is the sort of thing that was normally confined to authoritarian police states like Putin’s Russia, but has now become more common in America.

Combined with the Mueller witch hunt–an Establishment-ordained impeachment mission designed from the outset to destroy this #problematic presidency; a punishment in search of a crime–it is now clear that we are living in a country hardly even resembling our idea of America.

This is What Happens to Enemies of the Deep State

This is the type of thing that happens in police states like Putin’s Russia:

“FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.”

Allow that to sink in.

The fact that this DoJ official was an anti-Clinton whistleblower was the reason his house was raided by the FBI.

Trump’s FBI.

“The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.

The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by TheDCNF alleges. Mueller is now the special counsel investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election. […]

Sixteen agents arrived at the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, a former FBI contractor, on the morning of Nov. 19 and raided his Union Bridge, Maryland, home, [the whistleblower’s lawyer] Socarras told TheDCNF.

The raid was permitted by a court order signed on Nov. 15 by federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher in the U.S. District Court for Baltimore and obtained by TheDCNF.

A special agent from the FBI’s Baltimore division, who led the raid, charged that Cain possessed stolen federal property and demanded entry to his private residence, Socarras told TheDCNF. […]”

Even though we have Trump in the White House, we are not in control. The federal government’s bureauacracy is too vast, and the corruption too deep, to be undone by simply electing a President of our own. He’s surrounded by the Deep State.

The Deep State is sending a message to Trump: “We’re not locked in here with you, you’re locked in here with us.”

This is scary shit.

Our FBI is going Full Police State to cover for Hillary Clinton’s crimes.

This story is also a major indictment of Robert Mueller. If there was any doubt prior to this that he’s a Deep State fixer, there shouldn’t be now.

“Cain informed the agent while he was still at the door that he was a recognized protected whistleblower under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act and that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz recognized his whistleblower status, according to Socarras.

Cain further told the FBI agent the potentially damaging classified information had been properly transmitted to the Senate and House Intelligence committees as permitted under the act, Socarras said. The agent immediately directed his agents to begin a sweep of the suburban home, anyway.

Frightened and intimidated, Cain promptly handed over the documents, Socarras told TheDCNF. Yet even after surrendering the information to the FBI, the agents continued to rummage through the home for six hours.”

NKVD, KGB and now FBI: America has its own Soviet-style secret police force rooting out enemies of the Deep State and covering up the crimes of its politicians.

Chateau Heartiste pretty much nails it:

“Welcome to the police state.

The FBI raided the home of an American patriot who was about to expose the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s Uranium One deal with Russia.

In point of fact, he already did expose it. He had sent the documents to the DOJ before the raid. But it would seem there are rogue elements — or perhaps there are institutional elements dogged by rogue whistleblowers — in the DOJ who are conspiring with the FBI to bury the Clintons’ corruption. The DOJ is likely sitting on or shredding those docs right now, and the FBI was sent in as a clean-up crew to sweep the whistleblower’s house for any stray incriminating docs.

This is Dan Bongino’s take on the raid. He calls it a head fake. The DOJ and FBI are colluding to sweep under the rug any evidence of Clinton corruption. The raid was a mop-up operation.

The Deep State is openly flouting Americans’ faith in the system with its stepped-up efforts to protect [Hillary] from the justice she richly deserves. The homes of innocent Americans who dare to shine a light on elite corruption are fair game for gun-wielding FBI agents bursting through the front door to ransack the place of evidence that could be useful in a court of law.

This is so corrupt it’s almost hard to believe. We’re not really living in America anymore.

“Worse, the Deep State hides their subterfuge with the aid of an accomplice media, and reorients the prevailing narrative to indict, without any evidence, a duly elected president for the crime of a collusion that the Deep State, Obama Admin, and Clintons themselves are in fact guilty of committing. They are getting away with a coup while we watch, helpless, because they know the media will run cover for them.”

The “mainstream” media will not take the whistleblower’s side. This is how you know things are really bad. The media should instinctively take the side of the lone whistleblower, not the omnipotent FBI.

But our “media” is actually the Deep State’s propaganda arm.
