It always defied logic to think President Obama wasn’t in the loop when it came to the “Trump/Russia” investigation and the targeting of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. And now, a just-released document confirms that he was. This knowledge comes from an unexpected source, then-deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, in the “302” notes from her interview with the FBI during the special counsel investigation. These notes were filed by the Justice Department on Wednesday with Sidney Powell’s motion to dismiss charges against Flynn.

The plot turns on that now-infamous January 5, 2017, meeting in the Oval Office. President-elect Donald Trump would be taking office on January 20, and Flynn would be “ambushed” at his new White House digs on January 24. On January 4, the day before the White House meeting, FBI investigators had notified top FBI officials that they were dropping the Flynn investigation, as nothing incriminating (“derogatory”) had been found. Having the target turn up clean seems like an excellent reason for closing a case, but FBI official Peter Strzok had immediately notified them to keep it open, as the “7th Floor” –- Director Comey and other top-tier officials –- was involved.

The only reason Strzok would’ve had to keep the case open was so they could connive their way into a surprise interview with Flynn, challenge his memory of something they already knew, and get him to “lie” about something that was absolutely in his purview to do, Logan Act or no Logan Act. The whole idea of him “lying” to them was a joke, as he knew from his experience in intel that any phone conversation with a foreign ambassador would’ve been recorded.

Anyway, according to Sally Yates’ “302,” Obama called her and Comey over during the January Oval Office meeting to discuss Flynn’s phone conversation with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. OBAMA brought it up. Obviously, he already knew something about this; Yates was surprised by the turn of the conversation. “Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions,” the “302” read. “Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter (plausible deniability?), but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”

Keep in mind that Obama detests Flynn, who as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency had been a vocal opponent of his Iran policy and, in particular, of his “baby,” the misguided Iran nuclear deal. Obama advised President-elect Trump to be on guard against two things: North Korea and Michael Flynn (!). Here's the story from May of 2017.

According to Yates, it was Comey who told Obama about the Logan Act, an anachronistic law from 1799 (before telephones) that prohibits American private citizens from opposing current foreign affairs policies. It’s been on the books all this time but has NEVER been used to successfully prosecute. And Flynn wasn’t a private citizen --- he was the incoming national security adviser, for gosh sake, and this was the transition for President-elect Trump. I doubt these points came up in the conversation, though.

It’s already been established through the handwritten notes of Bill Priestap that the FBI was talking about getting Flynn to admit to violating that law.

Yates told the FBI that she wasn’t aware of the Kislyak call or the Logan Act discussions that had taken place within the FBI. She said she thought it might be a “technical violation” of the Logan Act (translation: a ridiculous stretch) during the presidential transition, but that the FBI “was more eager to pursue prosecution initially.”

Yates said Comey agreed that if the Kislyak call fell during the Obama administration --- and, technically, it did --- he would notify the White House chief of staff. But it says in her “302” that “the FBI said at some point that notification would mess up an ongoing investigation, but Yates said it was not always clear what exactly the FBI was doing to investigate Flynn.” Comey kept his plan close to the vest.

In fact, it was only AFTER the two agents Strzok and Pientka went to Flynn’s West Wing office to question him that Comey called Yates to tell her about it. According to her “302,” she was very “frustrated” about this. “She felt a decision to conduct an interview with Flynn should have been coordinated with [the Department of Justice].” She said the Flynn interview was “problematic” because White House counsel should have been notified. Indeed. But we’ve known for a long time that Comey went around them anyway; he bragged about it later and said he thought he could get away with doing that. It was a gross abuse of power.

But the Obama White House has been touched by this now.

By the way, Biden was in the Oval Office meeting, too. It would be good to question him, but he can probably be counted on to forget there even was a meeting. I don't mean saying “I don’t recall” while under oath, but literally NOT REMEMBERING it happened.

We can already see the frantic spinning on the left. Thursday, Jerrold Nadler, impeachment-mad chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted, “This is outrageous! Flynn PLEADED GUILTY to lying to investigators. The evidence against him is overwhelming. Now, a politicized DOJ is dropping the case. The decision to overrule the special counsel is without precedent and warrants an immediate explanation.” In Nadler World, the evidence that Flynn was set up and coerced to plead guilty simply doesn't exist. With few exceptions, that evidence won’t exist in Media World, either.

But there's much more to come, and only so much spinning even the most vicious Trump-hater can do. (What’s coming today and next week is said to be even more conclusive.) Thursday, there were additional “Spygate” revelations, these about Adam Schiff’s House Impeachment Committee –- I mean, House Intelligence Committee –- with transcripts that undercut the Democrats’ narrative of a legitimate “Russia” investigation. Thanks to acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, Schiff had to release thousands of declassified transcripts from the “Russia” investigation showing that, more than a year into it, FBI and intel officials could offer nothing in the way of specific proof of “collusion” with Moscow. All they offered were rambling explanations.

Sen. Chuck Grassley believes there will be prosecutions.

Here’s one huge revelation from Thursday: Hillary/DNC attorney Michael Sussman of Perkins Coie acknowledged under questioning by Republican staff (of course) that in February of 2017, he shared “dirt” he had gotten on the Trump organization’s possible ties to Russia WITH THE CIA. So the CIA was getting its anti-Trump rumors directly from a Clinton lawyer. SEE, IT ALWAYS GOES BACK TO HILLARY. Sussman wouldn’t say where he got the dirt, just that it came “from a client.” Probably Glenn Simpson and/or Chris Steele.

Schiff wrote a laughable preface to the material, saying, “The transcripts released today richly detail evidence of the Trump campaign’s efforts to invite, make use of, and cover up Russia’s help in the 2016 presidential election.” Actually, they do just the opposite.

Here’s John Solomon with all the details. This is great.

And here’s some great weekend reading, from Gregg Jarrett.

    We all know about the corruption during the Obama years. We know Obama, Hillary, Biden, Schumer, Schiff, Strzok, Pientka, Comey, Nadler and many others should be prosecuted, made to pay back all the taxpayer money they wasted on this impeachment, then thrown in prison and throw away the key. My question is why aren't they held accountable? Are the corrupt democrats untouchable?

  • Virginia Anderson

    To hear this story "covered" in the MSM, you would think Flynn was still guilty.I have given up watching the TV news, and even reading the Chicago Tribune which has turned into the National Enquirer. I think people like John Solomon should be given a Pulitzer Price for digging into this story. If only we come to the da when they will be found guilty in the courts. They should all be put away.

    I always knew in my heart of hearts that Obama knew about this and more than likely INSTIGATED it! I want to see, along with I’m sure millions of other Americans, Obama and all his cohorts, definitely including Hillary, sent to PRISON. This crime and other crimes he and his administration committed should not have a time limit on them OR the excuse you can’t prosecute Obama for a crime committed during his presidency since he is no longer in office, or that you can’t prosecute him BECAUSE he was president ........... look what has been done to President Trump and he has been innocent of all he was charged with!!!!! Let’s get this done and get all these people that committed “High crimes and misdemeanors” put where they belong .........PRISON!

    Lying and hatred never pay in the end! For, the truth will always emerge, albeit long and painstakingly, and even in a circuitous manner sometimes. I, personally, frequently wonder why the Lord chooses this route, and allows the innocent to suffer excruciatingly while evil, and the evil doers take center stage and "thrive" in the public view.

    Finally the truth is creeping slowly out. I am just hoping the Graham has enough bodyguards to keep him alive until his report can surface. I can see that the rats are fleeing the mother ship already. Should be a very interesting coming few months. Then when President Trump gets re-elected in a landslide election, they will explode. Personally, I hope and pray that it will be a very "red" election cycle. if not, I will be searching for a safe haven since I parted with my firearms and ammo.

    Now we know how high up the TREASON went; right into the Oval Office, and its so-called "occupant" from 2009-2017. High treason is a capital offense, and ALL the coup plotters from Barry O, on down, should eventually never see another free from prison day for the rest of their mangy lives, at the very least! As for the "capital" part of the sentence, we would be honored to throw the switch(es) ourselves.

    Finally, we have ACTUAL proof. The kind that can be used in a legal trial. As an American Citizen, I want to see JUSTICE done so that we can believe in our American Justice System, our intelligence agencies, and the integrity of a sitting president. All of what was released puts Obama included in the wrong doing. THIS IS WORSE THEN WATERGATE. The then President Nixon left office because of his part in that scandal and past president Obama needs to be Just as accountable. Maybe even the first past president to serve "time" along with a past "Secretary of State" doing time in a Federal Prison. It is common knowledge that getting a indictment in Washington DC is not possible. This being stated, Attorney General Barr needs to have it moved to another state that is impartial. Lets see if that happens. I am hopefull.......for the first time in a long time.

    Obama where is he in his $17 million dollar house in Marthas Vineyard hide away? Sounds like Gen Flynn was not a friend to this President? So what was maybe set up to try to take him down backing Trump? The details are horrific to see that our won FBI we the citizens depend on and pay could work and set up this whole scam. Doggone scary and what this man had to endure. Just why he was not allowed to have any of his own attorneys? Stinks. Love the way the other side now this is all Barr and he is covering up and taking Flynns side. See the paperwork people read and see what was being done not lies or fake like on CNN and MSNBC? WAKE UP PEOPLE ask WHY and HOW?

  • Purushottam Naik

    All episodes surrounding Flynn and Russia connection investigations are totally fabricated and manipulated by politically motivated thugs with very hidden agenda of hurting Mr. President, Trump. But in the end, the truth comes and thanks to democrat leaders for giving another major victory to Flynn and Mr. President, Trump, including 2020 Presidential Election in favour of Mr. Trump! I kindly request Mr. Flynn and Mr. Trump should sue all these thugs with maximum penality possible.

  • Robin Rebhan

    05/08/2020 01:50 PM

    Benedict Arnold pales in comparison to this whole savage affair against an Honorable man like General Flynn.
    And to think of how many democrats in leadership knew this and Badge carrying "law enforcement" officers and Department of "Justice" personnel. Just shows that the democrats don't have a platform to stand on, so they have to rule by force contrary to our laws and The United States Constitution.
    I think most "honest" judges would have seen right through all of this in court and at the very least would be reviewing every single case brought before him by anyone in this group of "progressive/socialist" misfits.

  • Stan Rhoads

    I am absolutely sickened to read this. I knew in my heart that all of these accusations against General Flynn and President Trump could not be true. Such evil and deceitful people who will go to any length to achieve their wicked goals. Such an unnecessary waste of time and MONEY. There are a lot of people who should be sleeping behind bars once all of the truth is revealed. The hard part is deciding who should be tossed into jail first. Hmmm ... I think it should start with Schiff!

  • Keith Ochs

    I can't wait to hear what Mr. Durham will recommend to Attorney General Barr; given the fact it's a criminal investigation with an impaneled Grand Jury and that Mr. Durham even had to hire more staff, it should be very juicy indeed. I just trust that all the staff Durham hires replicates the "bi-partisan" group structure hired by the Mueller team....19 Democrats and 0 Republicans. The best part is, I suspect that this is all leading somewhere, and that means to the TOP! There is already evidence of that and I'm sure more will come out. If it all comes to pass, we will see a reckoning of biblical proportions for the Democrat party.

    Meanwhile, and investigation should be undertaken by our Justice Dept. in conjunction with other injured nations, to participate in a complete investigation of the Wuhan Virus. I don't like Covid-19, it's wrong! There's no pretext to demanding that we find out exactly what happened A-Z, so it does not happen again. The only way to counter that is to throw up your deflector shields and assign blame no matter the facts. That hopefully will lead to a submission to the International Courts to consider and then pursue charges of "CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY". Their leader and those responsible in the in circle all need to be tried Nurnberg Style as the was done post WWII. It is at that point the Chinese people, if they can muster the courage, lead by the Hong Konger's to take their country back, and truly become a member of the civilized world.

    I think its disgraceful what has happened to General Flynn and for the treatment our President has received from the past acting members of the White House. They are not worthy of being called by their titles, but rather they are vindictive people willing to take any measure to destroy the lives of innocent people. When is Obama, Hillary Clinton, Biden, and all those who have set out to destroy Trump and anyone he has appointed to positions of integrity, going to stand trial and face jail time. I think enough is enough and the FBI needs to be cleaned out and restarted by new people who have been vetted as being for the government and the American people as the servants they are hired for. Wake up America and see what's going on instead of looking for a handout from our government before they take over all our liberties as American Citizens. I deeply admire President Trump for the fortitude and strength he has in trying to drain the swamp and I pray everyday for God to give him wisdom in all his endeavors and that he protects him from the evil left.

    All episodes surrounding Flynn and Russia connection investigations are totally fabricated and manipulated by politically motivated thugs with very hidden agenda of hurting Mr. President, Trump. But in the end, the truth comes and thanks to democrat leaders for giving another major victory to Flynn and Mr. President, Trump, including 2020 Presidential Election in favour of Mr. Trump! I kindly request Mr. Flynn and Mr. Trump should sue all these thugs with maximum penality possible.

    Benedict Arnold pales in comparison to this whole savage affair against an Honorable man like General Flynn.
    And to think of how many democrats in leadership knew this and Badge carrying "law enforcement" officers and Department of "Justice" personnel. Just shows that the democrats don't have a platform to stand on, so they have to rule by force contrary to our laws and The United States Constitution.
    I think most "honest" judges would have seen right through all of this in court and at the very least would be reviewing every single case brought before him by anyone in this group of "progressive/socialist" misfits.

    I am absolutely sickened to read this. I knew in my heart that all of these accusations against General Flynn and President Trump could not be true. Such evil and deceitful people who will go to any length to achieve their wicked goals. Such an unnecessary waste of time and MONEY. There are a lot of people who should be sleeping behind bars once all of the truth is revealed. The hard part is deciding who should be tossed into jail first. Hmmm ... I think it should start with Schiff!

    But, the democrats will not be prosecuted for what they have done. The Americans can see what is going on and we are angry because they are getting special treatment for their crimes and the rest of us would be put under the prison. We want to see justice and prosecution .

    I can't wait to hear what Mr. Durham will recommend to Attorney General Barr; given the fact it's a criminal investigation with an impaneled Grand Jury and that Mr. Durham even had to hire more staff, it should be very juicy indeed. I just trust that all the staff Durham hires replicates the "bi-partisan" group structure hired by the Mueller team....19 Democrats and 0 Republicans. The best part is, I suspect that this is all leading somewhere, and that means to the TOP! There is already evidence of that and I'm sure more will come out. If it all comes to pass, we will see a reckoning of biblical proportions for the Democrat party.

    Meanwhile, and investigation should be undertaken by our Justice Dept. in conjunction with other injured nations, to participate in a complete investigation of the Wuhan Virus. I don't like Covid-19, it's wrong! There's no pretext to demanding that we find out exactly what happened A-Z, so it does not happen again. The only way to counter that is to throw up your deflector shields and assign blame no matter the facts. That hopefully will lead to a submission to the International Courts to consider and then pursue charges of "CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY". Their leader and those responsible in the in circle all need to be tried Nurnberg Style as the was done post WWII. It is at that point the Chinese people, if they can muster the courage, lead by the Hong Konger's to take their country back, and truly become a member of the civilized world.

    I think its disgraceful what has happened to General Flynn and for the treatment our President has received from the past acting members of the White House. They are not worthy of being called by their titles, but rather they are vindictive people willing to take any measure to destroy the lives of innocent people. When is Obama, Hillary Clinton, Biden, and all those who have set out to destroy Trump and anyone he has appointed to positions of integrity, going to stand trial and face jail time. I think enough is enough and the FBI needs to be cleaned out and restarted by new people who have been vetted as being for the government and the American people as the servants they are hired for. Wake up America and see what's going on instead of looking for a handout from our government before they take over all our liberties as American Citizens. I deeply admire President Trump for the fortitude and strength he has in trying to drain the swamp and I pray everyday for God to give him wisdom in all his endeavors and that he protects him from the evil left.

It always defied logic to think President Obama wasn’t in the loop when it came to the “Trump/Russia” investigation and the targeting of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. And now, a just-released document confirms that he was. This knowledge comes from an unexpected source, then-deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, in the “302” notes from her interview with the FBI during the special counsel investigation. These notes were filed by the Justice Department on Wednesday with Sidney Powell’s motion to dismiss charges against Flynn.

The plot turns on that now-infamous January 5, 2017, meeting in the Oval Office. President-elect Donald Trump would be taking office on January 20, and Flynn would be “ambushed” at his new White House digs on January 24. On January 4, the day before the White House meeting, FBI investigators had notified top FBI officials that they were dropping the Flynn investigation, as nothing incriminating (“derogatory”) had been found. Having the target turn up clean seems like an excellent reason for closing a case, but FBI official Peter Strzok had immediately notified them to keep it open, as the “7th Floor” –- Director Comey and other top-tier officials –- was involved.

The only reason Strzok would’ve had to keep the case open was so they could connive their way into a surprise interview with Flynn, challenge his memory of something they already knew, and get him to “lie” about something that was absolutely in his purview to do, Logan Act or no Logan Act. The whole idea of him “lying” to them was a joke, as he knew from his experience in intel that any phone conversation with a foreign ambassador would’ve been recorded.

Anyway, according to Sally Yates’ “302,” Obama called her and Comey over during the January Oval Office meeting to discuss Flynn’s phone conversation with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. OBAMA brought it up. Obviously, he already knew something about this; Yates was surprised by the turn of the conversation. “Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions,” the “302” read. “Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter (plausible deniability?), but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”

Keep in mind that Obama detests Flynn, who as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency had been a vocal opponent of his Iran policy and, in particular, of his “baby,” the misguided Iran nuclear deal. Obama advised President-elect Trump to be on guard against two things: North Korea and Michael Flynn (!). Here's the story from May of 2017.

According to Yates, it was Comey who told Obama about the Logan Act, an anachronistic law from 1799 (before telephones) that prohibits American private citizens from opposing current foreign affairs policies. It’s been on the books all this time but has NEVER been used to successfully prosecute. And Flynn wasn’t a private citizen --- he was the incoming national security adviser, for gosh sake, and this was the transition for President-elect Trump. I doubt these points came up in the conversation, though.

It’s already been established through the handwritten notes of Bill Priestap that the FBI was talking about getting Flynn to admit to violating that law.

Yates told the FBI that she wasn’t aware of the Kislyak call or the Logan Act discussions that had taken place within the FBI. She said she thought it might be a “technical violation” of the Logan Act (translation: a ridiculous stretch) during the presidential transition, but that the FBI “was more eager to pursue prosecution initially.”

Yates said Comey agreed that if the Kislyak call fell during the Obama administration --- and, technically, it did --- he would notify the White House chief of staff. But it says in her “302” that “the FBI said at some point that notification would mess up an ongoing investigation, but Yates said it was not always clear what exactly the FBI was doing to investigate Flynn.” Comey kept his plan close to the vest.

In fact, it was only AFTER the two agents Strzok and Pientka went to Flynn’s West Wing office to question him that Comey called Yates to tell her about it. According to her “302,” she was very “frustrated” about this. “She felt a decision to conduct an interview with Flynn should have been coordinated with [the Department of Justice].” She said the Flynn interview was “problematic” because White House counsel should have been notified. Indeed. But we’ve known for a long time that Comey went around them anyway; he bragged about it later and said he thought he could get away with doing that. It was a gross abuse of power.

But the Obama White House has been touched by this now.

By the way, Biden was in the Oval Office meeting, too. It would be good to question him, but he can probably be counted on to forget there even was a meeting. I don't mean saying “I don’t recall” while under oath, but literally NOT REMEMBERING it happened.

We can already see the frantic spinning on the left. Thursday, Jerrold Nadler, impeachment-mad chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted, “This is outrageous! Flynn PLEADED GUILTY to lying to investigators. The evidence against him is overwhelming. Now, a politicized DOJ is dropping the case. The decision to overrule the special counsel is without precedent and warrants an immediate explanation.” In Nadler World, the evidence that Flynn was set up and coerced to plead guilty simply doesn't exist. With few exceptions, that evidence won’t exist in Media World, either.

But there's much more to come, and only so much spinning even the most vicious Trump-hater can do. (What’s coming today and next week is said to be even more conclusive.) Thursday, there were additional “Spygate” revelations, these about Adam Schiff’s House Impeachment Committee –- I mean, House Intelligence Committee –- with transcripts that undercut the Democrats’ narrative of a legitimate “Russia” investigation. Thanks to acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, Schiff had to release thousands of declassified transcripts from the “Russia” investigation showing that, more than a year into it, FBI and intel officials could offer nothing in the way of specific proof of “collusion” with Moscow. All they offered were rambling explanations.

Sen. Chuck Grassley believes there will be prosecutions.

Here’s one huge revelation from Thursday: Hillary/DNC attorney Michael Sussman of Perkins Coie acknowledged under questioning by Republican staff (of course) that in February of 2017, he shared “dirt” he had gotten on the Trump organization’s possible ties to Russia WITH THE CIA. So the CIA was getting its anti-Trump rumors directly from a Clinton lawyer. SEE, IT ALWAYS GOES BACK TO HILLARY. Sussman wouldn’t say where he got the dirt, just that it came “from a client.” Probably Glenn Simpson and/or Chris Steele.

Schiff wrote a laughable preface to the material, saying, “The transcripts released today richly detail evidence of the Trump campaign’s efforts to invite, make use of, and cover up Russia’s help in the 2016 presidential election.” Actually, they do just the opposite.

Here’s John Solomon with all the details. This is great.

And here’s some great weekend reading, from Gregg Jarrett.

    We all know about the corruption during the Obama years. We know Obama, Hillary, Biden, Schumer, Schiff, Strzok, Pientka, Comey, Nadler and many others should be prosecuted, made to pay back all the taxpayer money they wasted on this impeachment, then thrown in prison and throw away the key. My question is why aren't they held accountable? Are the corrupt democrats untouchable?

  • Virginia Anderson

    To hear this story "covered" in the MSM, you would think Flynn was still guilty.I have given up watching the TV news, and even reading the Chicago Tribune which has turned into the National Enquirer. I think people like John Solomon should be given a Pulitzer Price for digging into this story. If only we come to the da when they will be found guilty in the courts. They should all be put away.

    I always knew in my heart of hearts that Obama knew about this and more than likely INSTIGATED it! I want to see, along with I’m sure millions of other Americans, Obama and all his cohorts, definitely including Hillary, sent to PRISON. This crime and other crimes he and his administration committed should not have a time limit on them OR the excuse you can’t prosecute Obama for a crime committed during his presidency since he is no longer in office, or that you can’t prosecute him BECAUSE he was president ........... look what has been done to President Trump and he has been innocent of all he was charged with!!!!! Let’s get this done and get all these people that committed “High crimes and misdemeanors” put where they belong .........PRISON!

    Lying and hatred never pay in the end! For, the truth will always emerge, albeit long and painstakingly, and even in a circuitous manner sometimes. I, personally, frequently wonder why the Lord chooses this route, and allows the innocent to suffer excruciatingly while evil, and the evil doers take center stage and "thrive" in the public view.

    Finally the truth is creeping slowly out. I am just hoping the Graham has enough bodyguards to keep him alive until his report can surface. I can see that the rats are fleeing the mother ship already. Should be a very interesting coming few months. Then when President Trump gets re-elected in a landslide election, they will explode. Personally, I hope and pray that it will be a very "red" election cycle. if not, I will be searching for a safe haven since I parted with my firearms and ammo.

    Now we know how high up the TREASON went; right into the Oval Office, and its so-called "occupant" from 2009-2017. High treason is a capital offense, and ALL the coup plotters from Barry O, on down, should eventually never see another free from prison day for the rest of their mangy lives, at the very least! As for the "capital" part of the sentence, we would be honored to throw the switch(es) ourselves.

    Finally, we have ACTUAL proof. The kind that can be used in a legal trial. As an American Citizen, I want to see JUSTICE done so that we can believe in our American Justice System, our intelligence agencies, and the integrity of a sitting president. All of what was released puts Obama included in the wrong doing. THIS IS WORSE THEN WATERGATE. The then President Nixon left office because of his part in that scandal and past president Obama needs to be Just as accountable. Maybe even the first past president to serve "time" along with a past "Secretary of State" doing time in a Federal Prison. It is common knowledge that getting a indictment in Washington DC is not possible. This being stated, Attorney General Barr needs to have it moved to another state that is impartial. Lets see if that happens. I am hopefull.......for the first time in a long time.

    Obama where is he in his $17 million dollar house in Marthas Vineyard hide away? Sounds like Gen Flynn was not a friend to this President? So what was maybe set up to try to take him down backing Trump? The details are horrific to see that our won FBI we the citizens depend on and pay could work and set up this whole scam. Doggone scary and what this man had to endure. Just why he was not allowed to have any of his own attorneys? Stinks. Love the way the other side now this is all Barr and he is covering up and taking Flynns side. See the paperwork people read and see what was being done not lies or fake like on CNN and MSNBC?
