Very Interesting – VP Mike Pence Would Welcome Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn Back Into The Administration…

A very interesting dynamic all things considered.  During a recent interview Vice President Mike Pence says he would welcome former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn back into the administration:

“Gen. Michael Flynn is an American patriot,” Pence told Axios in an interview. “And for my part, I’d be happy to see Michael Flynn again.”

And with that in mind, it’s worth taking all the current information and reviewing the fully cited (soup-to-nuts)  background of how the Pence -vs- Flynn ‘lying’ narrative was created.

♦In mid-December 2016 the Obama administration was deploying a full-court-press using their media allies to promote the Russia conspiracy. However, despite their extreme public proclamations DNI Clapper & CIA Brennan were refusing to give any specifics to congress.

The hard narrative was that Russia interfered. That was the specific push from within the Obama intelligence apparatus writ large. All IC officials, sans Mike Rogers (NSA), had a self-interest in pushing this narrative; after all, it was the defensive mechanism to justify their illegal spying operation and block Trump. This was their insurance policy.

The media was doing their part; and using the information leaked to them by those who were part of the 2016 operation(s) began battering the Trump transition team every hour of every day with questions about the Russia hacking narrative; thereby fertilizing the seeds of a collusion conspiracy.  The Trump-Russia narrative was relentless.

On December 29, 2016, the IC produced, and rushed to completion, a ridiculous document to support their false-premise. This was called the Joint Analysis Report which claimed to outline the details of Russia’s involvement hacking into targeted political data base or computer systems during the election. Within the JAR we were introduced to “Grizzley Steepe” and a goofy claim of Russian hackers.

.

On the same day (12/29/16) President Obama announced a series of sanctions against Russians who were located in Maryland. This was Obama’s carefully constructed response to provide additional validity to the Joint Analysis Report. After fueling the Russia conspiracy for several weeks the Obama administration knew this action would initiate a response from both Russia and the incoming Trump administration.

On the day the JAR was released and Obama made the announcement, President-elect Donald Trump and some of his key members were in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. Incoming National Security Adviser Mike Flynn was on vacation in the Dominican Republic. As expected the Obama action spurred calls between Russian emissary Kislyak and Flynn.

The Obama IC were monitoring Kislyak communications and waiting for the contact. Additionally, it was suspected Flynn was under a surveillance warrant which seemed confirmed by the Weissmann/Mueller report.  Flynn was the target of an ongoing FBI investigation. He was codenamed “Crossfire Razor.”

The FBI intercepted, recorded, and later transcribed the December 29th conversation between Sergey Kislyak and incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

The media continued to follow the lead from the Obama White House and Intelligence Community (writ large) fueling a narrative that any contact with the Russians was proof of collusion of some sort. In addition, the communications team of the White House, DOJ, FBI and aggregate IC began pushing a narrative surrounding the obscure Logan Act.

The ridiculous Logan Act promotion was targeted to infer that any action taken by the Trump campaign prior to taking office was interference with the political Obama Russia action, and would be evidence of collusion. That was the plan. DOJ Deputy AG Sally Yates was in charge of pushing the Logan Act narrative to the media.

The first two weeks of January 2017 was now a merging of two necessary narratives: (1) Russian interference; and (2) the Logan Act against Flynn. Each deployed against any entity who would counter the Russia narrative story. The media were running this dual narrative 24/7 against the incoming Trump officials and demanding repeated answers to questions that were framed around this story-line.

On January 3rd, 2017, the new congressional year began. SSCI Vice-Chair Dianne Feinstein abdicated her position within the Gang-of-Eight, and turned over the reigns to Senator Mark Warner. Warner was now the vice-chair of the SSCI; and a Go8 member.

On January 4, 2017, the FBI was going to drop the investigation of Flynn because they found no derogatory evidence.  FBI Agent Peter Strzok demanded the investigation be kept open and the “7th Floor” agreed with him (FBI Director Comey and Deputy McCabe).

On January 5, 2017, FBI Director James Comey went to the White House for a briefing with President Obama, VP Biden, ODNI James Clapper, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

DAG Yates had no idea the content of the Flynn Kislyak call was captured; and she had no idea ODNI James Clapper had briefed President Obama about the call.

President Obama asked Sally Yates and James Comey to remain behind after the briefing.  This was memorialized by Susan Rice:

On January 6, 2017, FBI Director James Comey and ODNI James Clapper went to Trump Tower to brief the incoming administration.  Simultaneously the Obama White House published the Intelligence Community Assessment, and declared:

We assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him. All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence. (pdf link)

It is not coincidental the ICA was “high confidence” by Brennan and Clapper; and less confidence by Mike Rogers (NSA).

With the Flynn Dec. 29, 2016, transcript in hand, the DOJ and FBI began aiding the Logan Act narrative with Obama intelligence officials supporting the Russia Conspiracy claims and decrying anyone who would interfere or counter the official U.S. position.

On January 14th, 2017, the content of the communication between Flynn and Kislyak was leaked to the Washington Post by an unknown entity. Likely the leak came from the FBI’s counterintelligence operation.  ONA Col. James Baker is suspected of leaking the content.

The FBI CoIntel group (Strzok, McCabe etc.), and the DOJ-NSD group (Sally Yates, Mary McCord etc.) were the largest stakeholders in the execution of the insurance policy phase because they were the epicenter of spygate, fraudulent FISA presentations and the formation and use of the Steele Dossier for surveillance warrants.

The media leak of the Flynn conversation with Kislyak was critical because the DOJ/FBI were pushing a political narrative. This was not about legality per se’, this effort was about establishing the framework for a preexisting investigation, based on a false premise, that would protect the DOJ and FBI. The investigation they needed to continue evolved into the Mueller special counsel. This was all insurance.

The Flynn-Kislyak leak led to Vice-President Mike Pence being hammered on January 15th, 2017, during a CBS Face the Nation interview about Trump campaign officials in contact with Russians.

Pence was exceptionally unprepared to answer the questions and allowed the media to blend questions about campaign contacts with necessary, and entirely appropriate, transition team contacts.

Sunday January 15th, 2017 – Five Days before the inauguration VP-elect Mike Pence appears on Face The Nation. [Transcript Here]

JOHN DICKERSON: But there’s a distinction between that feeling about the press and legitimate inquiry, as you say, that the Senate Intelligence Committee is doing.

Just to button up one question, did any advisor or anybody in the Trump campaign have any contact with the Russians who were trying to meddle in the election?

MIKE PENCE: Of course not. And I think to suggest that is to give credence to some of these bizarre rumors that have swirled around the candidacy. (link)

*NOTE* The incoming administration was under a false-narrative siege created by the media. At the time (early Jan, 2017) ‘any contact’ with Russians was evidence of meddling/election-collusion with Russians. VP-elect Mike Pence poorly answered the question from Dickerson from a very defensive position.

The toxic media environment and Mike Pence speaking poorly during a Face The Nation interview now became a much bigger issue.  The FBI was prepared to pounce on this situation.

Once Vice-President Mike Pence made the statement that Flynn had no contact with anyone from Russia etc. any contradictory statement from Flynn would make Pence appear compromised.

NSA Advisor Michael Flynn is now contrast against Pence’s false point without clarification. As National Security Advisor Flynn was interviewed by the FBI on January 24th, nine days after Pence made his comments.

Tuesday January 24th – Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was interviewed at the WH by the FBI.

During this ambush interview, disguised as a meeting, FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Agent Joe Pientka were contrasting Vice-President-elect Pence’s statements to CBS against the known action of Mike Flynn. [Flynn has three options: either (1) Flynn contradicts Pence, or (2) he tells a lie; or (3) Flynn explains Pence misspoke, those were his options.]

How Flynn responded to the line of inquiry, and explained/reconciled the difference between Pence’s statement on Jan 15th and what actually took place on December 29th, 2016, is why the FBI ended up with the initial conclusion that Flynn wasn’t lying.

It is within this dynamic where the FD-302 reports, written by Strzok and Pientka, then became the subject of political manipulation by Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

The FBI knew the content of the Flynn call with Sergey Kislyak because they were listening in. The FBI were intercepting those communications. So when Pence said no-one had any contact on January 15th, the FBI crew IMMEDIATELY knew they had an issue to exploit.

We see the evidence of the FBI knowing they had an issue to exploit, and being very nervous about doing it, in the text messages between Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok who would end up doing the questioning of Flynn.

The day before the Flynn interview:

January 23, 2017, the day before the Flynn interview, Lisa Page says: “I can feel my heart beating harder, I’m so stressed about all the ways THIS has the potential to go fully off the rails.” Weird!

♦Strzok replies: “I know. I just talked with John, we’re getting together as soon as I get in to finish that write up for Andy (MCCABE) this morning.” Strzok agrees with Page about being stressed that “THIS” could go off the rails… (Strzok’s meeting w Flynn the next day)

“John” is Jonathan Moffa and “Bill” is Bill Priestap, FBI Deputy Director in charge of Counterintelligence.  “Jen” is Jennifer Boone, FBI counterproliferation division.

So it’s the day before they interview Flynn. Why would Page & Strzok be stressed about “THIS” potentially going off the rails?

The answer is simple: they knew the content of the phone call between Mike Flynn and Sergey Kislyak because they were listening in, and they were about to exploit the Pence statement to CBS. In essence they were admitting to monitoring Flynn, that’s why they were so nervous.

They were planning and plotting with Andrew McCabe about how they were going to exploit the phone-tap and the difference in public statements by VP Mike Pence.  However, FBI Counterintelligence Director Bill Priestap has doubts about the validity of interviewing Flynn.  Priestap has a meeting with with “DD” Deputy Director McCabe to share his concerns:

FBI Agent Strzok is worried that his boss, Bill Priestap, may disrupt the plan.  He texts with Lisa Page (top of page): “I worry Bill isn’t getting the underlying distinction that I think is clear. But maybe I’m wrong.”

The day of the interview (bottom half of page above) Bill Priestap still has issues about the purpose of interviewing Flynn over a perfectly legitimate conversation.  Priestap has another meeting this time with “d” FBI Director Comey and “dd” Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

FBI Agent Peter Strzok is stressed out; Bill Priestap could blow the plan if he doesn’t back down from his concerns.  Lisa Page says McCabe “is frustrated” with Bill Priestap’s reluctance to go along with the plan.

Priestap, sensing something could really backfire with the plan; and questioning the overall legality of their purpose; memorializes his concern with more hand written notes during their meeting:

The Interview Takes Place:

NSA Michael Flynn was honest but his honesty contradicted Pence’s national statement on CBS; and Flynn likely tried to dance through a needle without being overly critical of VP-elect Pence misspeaking. Remember, the alternative: if Flynn is brutally honest, the media now runs with a narrative about Vice-President Pence as a national liar.

Wednesday January 25th, 2017, – The Department of Justice, National Security Division, (at this timeframe Mary McCord was head of the DOJ-NSD) – received a detailed readout from the FBI agents who had interviewed Flynn. Yates said she felt “it was important to get this information to the White House as quickly as possible.”

Thursday January 26th – (morning) Sally Yates called White House Counsel Don McGahn first thing that morning to tell him she had “a very sensitive matter” that had to be discussed face to face. McGahn agreed to meet with Yates later that afternoon.

Thursday January 26th – (afternoon) Sally Yates traveled to the White House along with a senior member of the DOJ’s National Security Division, “who was overseeing the matter”, that is Mary McCord. This was Yates’ first meeting with McGahn in his office, which also acts as a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF).

Yates said she began their meeting by laying out the media accounts and media statements made by Vice President Mike Pence and other high-ranking White House officials about General Flynn’s activity “that we knew not to be the truth.

According to Sally Yates testimony, she and Mary McCord presented all the information to McGahn so the White House could take action that they deemed appropriate. When asked by McGahn if Flynn should be fired, Yates answered, “that really wasn’t our call.”

Yates also said her decision to notify the White House counsel had been discussed “at great length.” According to her testimony: “Certainly leading up to our notification on the 26th, it was a topic of a whole lot of discussion in DOJ and with other members of the intel community.”

Friday January 27th – (morning) White House Counsel Don McGahn called Yates in the morning and asked if she could come back to his office.

Friday January 27th – (late afternoon) According to her testimony, Sally Yates returned to the White House late that afternoon. One of McGahn’s topics discussed was whether Flynn could be prosecuted for his conduct.

Specifically, according to Yates, one of the questions *McGahn asked Yates: “Why does it matter to DOJ if one White House official lies to another?” She explained that it “was a whole lot more than that,” and reviewed the same issues outlined the prior day.

[*If you consider that McGahn was trying to thread the needle between Mike Pence’s poorly worded response to CBS, and Michael Flynn’s FBI questioning that came after Pence’s statement, McGahn would see the no-win situation Flynn was in during that inquisition.]

McGahn then expressed his concern that taking any action might interfere with the FBI investigation of Flynn, and Yates said it wouldn’t: “It wouldn’t really be fair of us to tell you this and then expect you to sit on your hands,” Yates claims to have told McGahn.

McGahn asked if he could look at the underlying evidence of Flynn’s conduct, and she said they would work with the FBI over the weekend and “get back with him on Monday morning.”

Friday January 27th, 2017 – (evening) In what appears to be only a few hours later, President Trump is having dinner with FBI Director James Comey where President Trump asked if he was under investigation. Trump was, but to continue the auspices of the ongoing investigation, Comey lied and told him he wasn’t.

This why the issue of how the FBI agents write the 302 summary of the Flynn interview becomes such an important facet. We see that dynamic again playing out in the messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok; with Andrew McCabe providing the guidance.

Don’t forget, part of this background plan required a person to leak the content of the Mike Flynn phone call between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak to the Washington Post (January 14th). A massive leak of highly classified information that set up the questioning of Mike Pence on January 15th.

Within the case against Michael Flynn, prosecutor Brandon Van Grack later filed a cover letter attempting to explain the reason for the Flynn interview on January 24th, 2017, and a delay in the official filing of the interview notes (FD-302) on February 15th, 2017, and then another edit on May 31st, 2017.

To explain the FBI delay, Van Grack claimed the FD-302 report “inadvertently” had a header saying “DRAFT DOCUMENT/DELIBERATIVE MATERIAL” (screen grab)

What the special counsel appeared to be obfuscating was a process of deliberation within the investigative unit, headed by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, surrounding the specific wording of the 302 report on the Flynn interview. Likely how best to word the FBI notes for maximum damage.

In late 2018 Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack was attempting to hide the length of the small group deliberations within the FBI. In hindsight it seems he did not want the court to know Andrew McCabe was involved in shaping how the Flynn-302 was written.

However, we know there was a deliberative process in place, seemingly all about how to best position the narrative, because we can see the deliberations in text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok: See below (note the dates):

Stunningly in private messages (Lync microsoft instant messaging) Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are discussing how they are editing the FD-302 report on February 10th.

Lisa Page is “pissed off” because Peter Strzok previously edited the 302 and she says he “didn’t even attempt to make this cogent and readable”:

Peter Strzok replies back to Lisa Page that he was “trying to completely re-write the thing so as to save Joe’s voice”, because Joe Pientka was the actual author.

Peter Strzok is re-writing the interview notes of Pientka in order to construct the framework to accuse Flynn of lying.  Lisa Page is editing the re-write to make it more cogent and readable.

What is happening behind this instant message conversation on February 10, 2017, is the evidence the FBI continued to hide from the Flynn defense.  The original FD-302 written by Joe Pientka has never been seen.  The FBI only produced the copy of the interview notes that were re-written by Peter Strzok and then re-edited by FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

This is the big fraud completely exposed.

What they were actually doing is the risk to the small group who were framing Flynn.

Four days after Lisa Page finished editing the version of the notes that Strzok re-wrote, they are texting each-other about the finished product.   Peter asks Lisa if Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is “good with the F 302?”

Lisa Page replies to Peter Strzok “Launch on f 302”, it appears that Andrew McCabe has approved it.

The text message conversation above is February 14, 2017.

The modified, re-written and edited Michael Flynn FD-302 was then officially entered into the record on February 15, 2017, per the report:

The Flynn interview took place on January 24, 2017.

The Joe Pientka FD-302 was drafted on January 24th, and then later edited by Peter Strzok Feb 10th, shaped by Lisa Page Feb 10th, and ultimately approved by McCabe on February 14th, then entered into the official record on February 15th.

It was a deliberative document from the outset. Thanks to the Strzok/Page text and instant messages we know the 2018 cover letter from Special Counsel Brandon Van Grack was intentionally misleading.  The Feb 15th, 2017, date was the day after McCabe approved it (three weeks after the FBI interview).

May 17th, 2017, Robert Mueller was assigned as special Counsel. Then, the FD-302 report was re-entered on May 31st, 2017, removing the header; paving the way for Mueller’s team to use the content therein.

This level of overt corruption, and corrupt intent within the special counsel, is one of the more brutally obvious reasons why authorizing Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein should be regarded as participating in a political framing against the Trump White House.

The FBI interpretation of the Flynn interview was the way the DOJ and FBI could control the interview content.  Flynn’s original defense team Covington never requested to see the 302 prior to convincing Michael Flynn to take a plea deal.

See what happened?

Does it all make sense now?

Do you see why there are reports of the second FBI agent, Joe Pientka, saying he didn’t believe Flynn lied to them in the interview. Likely because Flynn didn’t lie; but the McCabe crew jumped on the opportunity to frame a lose/lose.

Either Flynn accepts a version of the 302 report where he lied, or: (A) Flynn has to take the position that Vice President Mike Pence lied to the nation in the Jan 15th CBS Face The Nation interview; and (B) Flynn needs to somehow discover the original 302 to prove the FBI was lying about it, not him.

See how that went down?

However, after Mueller, Weissmann and Van Grack enter the picture, they need to force Flynn to admit to the construct of the 302 as presented. For that they need some leverage.

The original authorization for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller was May 17th, 2017. The Mueller report shows there were two additional scope memos authorizing specific targeting of the Mueller probe.

The second scope memo was August 2nd, 2017, OUTLINED HERE, and is an important part of the puzzle that helps explain the corrupt original purpose of the special counsel.

A Third scope memo was issued by Rod Rosenstein to Robert Mueller on October 20th, 2017. The transparent intent of the third scope memo was to provide Mueller and Van Grack with ammunition and authority to investigate specific targets, for specific purposes.

One of those targets was General Michael Flynn’s son, Michael Flynn Jr.

As you review the highlighted portion below, found on pages 12 and 13 of the Weissmann report, read slowly and fully absorb the intent; the corruption is blood-boiling:

This third scope memo allowed Weissmann and Mueller to target tangentially related persons and entities bringing in Michael Cohen, Richard Gates, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn Jr. Additionally this memo established the authority to pursue “jointly undertaken activity“.

Page #12 October 20th, 2017, Scope Memo:

The first redaction listed under “personal privacy” is unknown. However, the second related redaction is a specific person, Michael Flynn Jr.

This October 20th, 2017, request from Weissmann and Mueller aligns with the time-frame were special counsel team lawyers Brandon L. Van Grack and Zainab N. Ahmad were prosecuting Michael Flynn and cornering him into a guilty plea.

Getting Rosenstein to authorize adding Mike Flynn Jr. to the target list (scope memo #3) meant the special counsel could threaten General Flynn with the indictment of his son as a co-conspirator tied to the Turkish lobbying issue (which they did) if he doesn’t agree to a plea. Remember: “jointly undertaken activity“.

Emails from Covington show the deal: “We have a lawyers’ unofficial understanding that they are unlikely to charge Junior in light of the Cooperation Agreement” (see below).

Forcing a plea for ‘lying to investigators‘ by threatening prosecution for sketchy FARA violations was the identical strategy used against both George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn.

The October 20, 2017, expanded scope memo authorized Mueller to start demanding records, phones, electronic devices and other evidence from Mike Flynn Jr, and provided the leverage Van Grack wanted. After all, Mike Flynn Jr. had a four month old baby.

The amount of twisted pressure from this corrupt team of prosecutors is sickening.

A month after Rosenstein approved Special Counsel Prosecutor Van Grack to target Flynn Jr, his father General Flynn was signing a plea agreement:

Authors note:  The original research outline for this was written in December of 2017.  Nothing in the nearly three years since it was written has changed. This was all clearly known to media three years ago.  The only thing added to this expanded outline is the documentary evidence proving what took place.

        General Flynn has already pleaded ‘guilty’. trial is over. No DOJ prosecution is needed.
        PDJT can commute any sentence without ‘pardon’, to let the case go to appeal on the pending motions to dismiss, withdraw extorted plea, with the new DOJ admissions perhaps a sanctions motion denial if Sidney Powell chooses to file a sanctions motion. General Flynn is effectively no longer on trial. But the case is so outrageous that judge sullivan, the DC court of Appeals, and the whole ‘justice system are on trial in this very public case. Sullivan may be deep state, and has publicly expressed his hatred and bias against General Flynn in open court without recusing himself afterwards. But does the DC Circuit want to reveal itself as corrupt, hoping that the press can cover with “Flynn lied that he lied…”, while more evidence of the coup and sedition continues to be exposed?
        One approach for a crooked court system is to stall past the november election. But the stalling will increase the intensity of the PDJT vote, so this is a difficult decision for biased, coup-supporting judges.

    Sundance—”…it’s worth taking all the current information and reviewing the fully cited (soup-to-nuts) background of how the Pence -vs- Flynn ‘lying’ narrative was created.”

    It’s not surprising that the word “media” is repeated 25 times in this article. The corrupted, complicit media is always at the center and is arguably the most dangerous enemy of the American people. “Gross journalistic malpractice” has become the norm in the majority of news outlets but thankfully many Americans agree with Lee Smith that the “…once-prestigious press organizations, including CNN as well as MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post, weren’t fooled by the collusion hoax. They were an essential part of it.” They are the essential drivers of every egregious hoax and even some WH policies from the firing of Gen Flynn years ago to P Trump’s initial Coronavirus policies.

    Convincing the vast majority of the populace about the real and present dangers of the corrupt and deceitful press is a daily necessity. If only there was a clear way to do it. P Trump has single handedly exposed more of their lies and manipulations than anyone else could ever do but it’s not enough as they are already plotting the next major attack on him with the malevolent Dems.

    Here’s one of today’s disgusting examples of media deceit disguised as moral and ethical superiority. Every day videos like this one should be widely disseminated to expose the top level of shameless media creeps most of all.

    I am so damn tired of hearing non-lawyer talking heads blathering at the mouth. I watched a few minutes of Wallace on Fox and almost threw a hard object at the TV.

    FLYNN did NOT LIE. And even if he lied, there is no US statute that says lies are crimes.

    FLYNN did NOT misrepresent. misrepresentation requires 1. Intent 2. And materiality. This was entrapment.

    There was NO investigation of Flynn as it concerned the Ambassador conversations because the FBI has the freakin transcript. How can one investigate something that is already known? Thus NO Materiality.

    It is all there, clearly written in the motion to dismiss. If these heads want to talk law then go to law school. Otherwise – shut up.

    But no, these little-wanna-be-Maos tyrants are allowed on TV to froth venom and spew shit – they have no idea what they are saying.

    The DOJ motion to dismiss cites numerous Supreme Court decisions that support the DOJ position. The court WILL dismiss the case based on precedent. Period. The court MUST dismiss. Everything else is just liberal wet dreams and it is fake fake fake!!!

    Little edit for catechresis: “The ridiculous Logan Act promotion was targeted to -infer- imply that any action taken by the Trump campaign prior to taking office was interference with the political Obama Russia action, and would be evidence of collusion.”

    Huge thanks to sundance for providing documented evidence that the corrupt DOJ prosecution via Rosenstein’s approval was targeting Flynn Jr and then shortly after Flynn Sr. plead guilty.

    Rod Rosenstein appears to have been a ruthless, merciless cold blooded participant in the scandal of the Century and didn’t care how much harm he did to the family of Gen Flynn.

    I wish I had a buck for every time sundance has been proven right over the last 3-4 years.

        For the same reason Trump praised Rosie–just giving them enough rope to hang themselves. Had Barr exposed Rosenstein prematurely there would have been a Democrat tsunami of calls for his impeachment and another Schiff for brains investigation for having politicized the DOJ, and Barr would have had to waste precious time and resources to beat that down. Better let the sleeping dogs lie and think they are getting away with it.

  9. In the Big Picture, it’s not about Mike Flynn. It’s not even about President Trump. It’s about us.

    Political power in this nation flows from the People. That’s not a punchline or a greeting card sentiment. It is the Foundational Principle of this Nation.

    The FBI belongs to us. The CIA, too. All three branches of government. The Armed Forces. All the agencies. Elections. ALL OF IT. They’ve forgotten this. We shouldn’t. They think we’re Property of the State, but the State is our property.

    We tried to remind them by electing Donald Trump. They responded with Crossfire Razor, Cross Wind, Crossfire Typhoon, Crossfire Hurricane, Crossfire Russia, Crossfire Mueller, Crossfire Impeachment and now, Crossfire Coronavirus. no wonder the President plays “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”; he wanted a different Stones song.

    The same people who tried to cancel, undermine, reverse, thwart, flip, subvert, deny and run a Coup on my vote for the last four years now tell they must, MUST install vote-by-mail to help me vote.

    Go F*** yourselves, you dirty criminal scumbags. You’ve “helped” enough, you thieving dirtbags.

    Alexander Hamilton: “The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE. The streams of national power ought to flow from that pure, original fountain of all legitimate authority.”

    Funny; you all bought $300 seats to watch “Hamilton”–and learned nothing.

    I am not a lawyer, but I can understand plain English.

    “advisor or anybody in the Trump campaign” refers to members of the CAMPAIGN, not the transition team. While Flynn was a member of the CAMPAIGN team, he didn’t speak to any foreign leaders.

    “…any contact with the Russians who were trying to meddle in the election?”

    The Russian ambassador was not a member of “…the Russians who were trying to meddle…”

    I believe you could ask any bright high school student to, parse the question the same way.

    How this got conflated into a scandal that almost took down a presidency is outrageous, and each and every DoJ, FBI, and court official who did not understand this question and simple answer is a fookin’ idiot and or traitor.

      It looks as though a lot of people were “asleep at the switch” when the bogus Pence-Flynn narrative was being constructed.

      The distinction between “campaign team” and “transition team” was certainly clear to Flynn himself. On page 6 of the redacted FD-302 filed on 17 December 2018 we read:

      FLYNN said he was not really part of the TRUMP campaign at the time of this call to KISLYAK.

    If their is any real Administration concern for Judge Sullivan to not drop the case with prejudice then… awww, what the heck, do it anyway –

    Send a couple of FBI agents over to discuss Sullivan’s admonishment of Flynn and accusing him of treason. For clarification of Sullivan’s statement, state of mind, intent in doing that.

    One agent from CoIntel, one from Civil Rights. “Yeah, we are just here to investigate a conspiracy to deprive a citizen of their civil rights and we believe you were recruited, knowingly or not, as a coconspirator… Well, we just wanted to know about who, convinced you to… were they citizens, or foreigners… oh, if you cannot talk without your attorney here are our cards. If you remember who told you to say those things, give us a call.”

    Sullivan would realize quite rightly that he was at a fork in the road – be an accessory to Coup Cabal, or bring the hammer to the Cabal for trying to use him in his official capacity, to make him an accessory, to further their goals.

    EVERYONE who has been touched by the Coup Cabal should have already been at this fork in the road.

    The campaign was over at the point when Flynn spoke to Kislyak.
    Lt. Gen. Flynn was no longer in the campaign when he spoke to the Russian ambassador, he was the incoming Nat’l Security advisor.
    Any good attorney could easily talk his way out of that situation. Did Covington work for Flynn or the FBI?

  20. I believe the Trump / Ukraine impeachment was supposed to succeed and that the laboratory release of the WuFlu was part of that plan to take down the United States for good. Pence was supposed to take over and deliberately screw up the response to the virus so that Biden would win the 2020 election and then “Game Over” for the USA. China would then take on world hegemony. That would explain why Biden is out there twisting in the wind, what happened with impeachment was not what was supposed to happen. Just like the Russian Collusion deal, it got blown up, but pieces of it are still smoldering in the ruins.

    I do not think Pence is exactly who he purports to be, just like Barr is not exactly who he projects himself to be. I am reminded of how HRC greeted Pence at Bush Sr.’s funeral. And there have been other occasions where his behavior was amiss or contradictory to the President. He cannot be fired, but Trump put him in charge of the coronavirus response I think to give himself cover to pick a new running mate for 2020 should there be any issue with the virus response.

    It is always interesting how two people can read the same thing and arrive at different conclusions. I do not believe that Strzok demanded that the investigation of Flynn be kept open. I believe Obama directed the “7th Floor” to do so. Along the same lines, I do not consider the FBICoIntel and DOJ-NSD groups to be the epicenter of this operation. They may have been the operational epicenter, but Obama was the strategic epicenter. As the president and head of the Democrat Party, the exposure of his criminal behavior in this matter would have caused real damage to the Party’s image, and thus its unquenchable quest for power. Hopefully that damage will still come to pass.

    I hate to be a nitpicker, but Sundance you have written this before and it’s just not true…
    So when Pence said no-one had any contact on January 15th, the FBI crew IMMEDIATELY knew they had an issue to exploit.

    Pence DID say no to this question “Just to button up one question, did any advisor or anybody in the Trump campaign have any contact with the Russians who were trying to meddle in the election?”

    But later in the interview Dickerson brings up the Flynn/Kislyak phone calls and specifically asks (several times) if they discussed sanctions. Pence says ” But what I can confirm, having spoken to him about it, is that those conversations that happened to occur around the time that the United States took action to expel diplomats had nothing whatsoever to do with those sanctions.”

    THAT was the issue. Not speaking to Russians in general.

    I have never understood why Pence was so definitive about it, when he should not have even anwered this question at all. I watched it live and said “oh,oh” at the time because Dickerson badgered him on this so I figured he knew something Pence didn’t know he knew

      The answer is still NO. Substantively Flynn did not discuss sanctions. The gist of the conversation was don’t escalate- we will talk about it later. After the inauguration.

      It was an “FBI-in-bed-with-the-Media” gotcha moment.

      In Pence/Trump/Flynn’s defense, they did NOT expect to be ambushed by their own government. It was naive. They should have known the communist were seething with anger. But that is Monday morning quarterbacking. And useless at this point.

    No one with a reasonable mind(that excludes all unhinged democrats) can assert Mike was denying anyone in the administration had talked to a Russian because the weight of his rhetorical response was equal to the wholly unsubstantiated and absurd allegation from part B of the media’s question. Of course the russians weren’t trying to help Donald Trump, why would they when Hillary Clinton gave Putin most of our uranium supplies?

    What I just don’t understand is how so many people fell for “Russia wants Trump to win”. From the very beginning I questioned the illogical aspect of this. Russia had so many deals with HRC that there had to be massive avenues of blackmail available. Trump had a limited real estate connection. Who could you manipulate more? The one with massive connections and deals, or a rich guy that tried to invest?

    Interesting how much has been known, either from examining existing material or even through leaks from people with more knowledge, but was never brought up by the corrupt media. Now proof come out and they are still silent due to their corrupt involvement. But even more striking is not a single one of all the people involved has come forward to spill the beans. There had to be hundreds of people in on this scam and no one saw fit to expose it.

    Wow! Thanks Sundance!

    This was the key for sure:

    “With the Flynn Dec. 29, 2016, transcript in hand, the DOJ and FBI began aiding the Logan Act narrative with Obama intelligence officials supporting the Russia Conspiracy claims and decrying anyone who would interfere or counter the official U.S. position.”

    A few comments:

    1) The Obama admin did not want to lose power to the incoming Trump team. So when they felt they caught them in a lie (in their eyes) (Pence Jan. 15, 2017), the FBI constructed the Flynn interview to attach the official U.S. position via Flynn. They came up emptyhanded, but they persisted.

    The message was…the Trump team went easy on Russia with the sanctions after Russia helped Trump win the election…Trump loved Putin more than anything. That was the fake collusion investigation. It was about the power to win the House back in 2018 and impeach.

    PElect Trump just did not think like that type of loser thinking.

    2) I enjoyed this FOIA of a 12/16/2016 email exhange on a #DumpFlynn effort related to Turkey some State Department folks discussed.

    3) Also a FOIA dump of a 12/7/2016 email from Kavlec to Nuland and others about some analytics from some authors how the Russian trolls were active after the election to “not elect Trump” via the electoral college and recount movement. The goal was to disrupt. The intelligence included in the ICA didn’t take a broad look, IMO. It was a real disservice to our country following a free and fair election.
