The Deep State got some more bad news.
Their Russian collusion story is being exposed for the hoax that it is.
And a secret closed door testimony by James Comey just drove the final nail in its coffin.
The collusion narrative gained steam last February when former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigned after it was alleged that he lied to the Vice President about his December conversations with the Russian Ambassador.
Obama holdover and acting Attorney General Sally Yates thought Flynn was compromised and subject to blackmail, as well as criminally liable under the flimsy theory that he violated the Logan Act – legislation passed over 200 years ago that prevents private citizens from communicating with foreign governments, but has never yielded one conviction.
Former Obama officials pushed the ridiculous story that there was something illegal – or even treasonous – about the incoming National Security Advisor speaking with a foreign counterpart.
Yates had Flynn interviewed by the FBI.
But that interview sat dormant for months.
It was only months later that Bob Mueller – who completely struck out on finding any evidence of collusion and was desperate for a conviction to prove he was still in the game – reached a guilty plea with Flynn over one count of lying to the FBI about his conversation with the Russian Ambassador.
But Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner that when Comey was still FBI Director he testified to Congress that the agents who conducted the interview did not believe Flynn lied.
There were widespread reports that Flynn had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about telephone conversations that he, Flynn, had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the transition in late December 2016. On Jan. 24, 2017, two of Comey’s FBI agents went to the White House to question Flynn, and there was a lot of speculation later that Flynn lied in that interview, which would be a serious crime.
“The Jan. 24 interview potentially puts Flynn in legal jeopardy,” the Washington Post reported in February. “Lying to the FBI is a felony offense.”
There was also a lot of concern in Congress, at least among Republicans, about the leak of the wiretapped Flynn-Kislyak conversation. Such intelligence is classified at the highest level of secrecy, yet someone — Republicans suspected Obama appointees in the Justice Department and intelligence community — revealed it to the press.
So in March, lawmakers wanted Comey to tell them what was up. And what they heard from the director did not match what they were hearing in the media.
According to two sources familiar with the meetings, Comey told lawmakers that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe that Flynn had lied to them, or that any inaccuracies in his answers were intentional. As a result, some of those in attendance came away with the impression that Flynn would not be charged with a crime pertaining to the Jan. 24 interview.”
This proves Mueller is nothing but a vindictive anti-Trump zealot.
There was nothing wrong with Flynn speaking to the Russian Ambassador.
And even James Comey – who participated in a scheme to spy on the Trump campaign – wasn’t going to pursue charges against Flynn.
Mueller charged Flynn because he needed to breathe life into his investigation.
Flynn’s conversations with the Ambassador were during the transition.
That Mueller focused on these conversations – and that Comey admitted the FBI didn’t think Flynn lied – shows a)Mueller was desperate for a conviction to prove his investigation needed to continue and b)he completely whiffed on finding any evidence of collusion during the election.
Do you agree?
