The family of Flynn is blasting the former leaders for their “massive corruption” after new revelations from an FBI insider linked to the Robert Mueller witch hunt of the former three-star general and head of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
After U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has, for months, repeatedly refused to dismiss the perjury case against Flynn as the Justice Department requested in the spring, a trove of once-classified documents has steadily been released by various government and congressional entities showing that at least one FBI agent on Mueller’s team believed the case was politically motivated and a “dead end.”
Meanwhile, according to newly unearthed emails, others associated with the investigation purchased liability insurance because they were afraid of being financially exposed if their scheme to lie about Flynn and entrap President Trump were to ever get out — as it has.
“Judge Sullivan and the DC Court of Appeals are turning out to be the unintentional heroes of the Flynn saga. In their unseemly quest to destroy Flynn, they refused to let DOJ drop case, and now we're getting some of the most explosive documents about Special Counsel probe yet,” The Federalist’s senior editor Mollie Hemingway wrote Sept. 25 on Twitter.
FBI agent William J. Barnett said during a Sept. 17 interview he believed that Mueller’s team had a “get Trump” attitude and that he personally did not want to pursue the alleged ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ probe because it was “not there” and nothing but a “dead end.”
FBI agent William J. Barnett made the comments during an interview on Sept. 17 at the Justice Department, before Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeffrey Jensen, who was tapped by Attorney General Bill Barr to review the case against Flynn. Jensen has joined U.S. Attorney John Durham’s team in his review of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Those comments have surfaced in new government documents.
Barnett told investigators that he thought the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe was “opaque” and “with little detail concerning specific evidence of criminal events.
“Barnett thought the case theory was ‘supposition on supposition,’” according to Barnett’s FBI 302, which was filed in Sullivan’s court last week by the government. It added that the “predication” of the Flynn probe was “not great,” and that it “was not clear” what the “persons opening the case wanted to ‘look for or at.’” (Related: VP Biden helped son Hunter become fabulously wealthy by shaking down international governments and corporations.)
In other words, as Trump has said all along, Mueller’s BS probe was a complete witch hunt; he was essentially given a mandate to ‘go out and find a crime — something, anything the president or his people did wrong.’
The Flynn family is livid over what the government he served for more than three decades put him through.
“Abusive, intentional lawless actions committed against the Republic, the President of the United States Donald J. Trump and his NSA Director and our brother, General Mike Flynn, by a vile cabal of thugs in the FBI, DOJ and Special Counsel's office threatened the national security of our country and all Americans,” the family statement notes.
“Evidence of massive corruption by the Obama-Biden administration pour from the pages of documents just released,” it continued. "The criminal conduct and malfeasance of those entrusted with the power to enforce our laws trampled the rights and lives of Gen. Flynn, our entire family, and all Americans who cherish our Constitution.”
And just think: If Obama/Biden/Comey, et. al., can get away with doing something like this to a retired three-star general and former DIA director, just how much difficulty would there be in destroying the life of an ordinary citizen who lacks the resources to mount a reasonable defense?
This is sedition at its core, and it must be treated (and punished) as such.
