Wouldn’t you know, when the evidence finally came out showing Michael Flynn was set up by the FBI, it would be at a time when the news was “all coronavirus, all the time.” My, how conveeeenient this is for media “news” outlets who want to ignore it until it goes away.

But it won’t go away. And there will be more. What has come out so far is less than half of what we’re going to see later on in the week. I’m guessing we’ll have another Friday document dump, but it might come today.

We’ve been covering the latest news on Flynn for the past several days, so you can refer to those commentaries if you need a refresher on how the records came to be delivered to attorney Sidney Powell, who has been trying to get them for many months. This is exculpatory (“Brady”) material that is automatically supposed to be turned over to the defense. She finally got much of what she’s been asking for –- she’s anticipating 11 more pages that are “damning” –- in the form of texts, emails and handwritten notes. It’s one of the handwritten notes that has shown beyond doubt that Flynn was personally targeted, just to get rid of him.

RELATED READING: Quick Mike Flynn update, plus a great article

The barely legible scrawl reads: “What’s our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute or get him fired?”

Let that sink in. “Get him to lie”? “...get him fired”? Since when does the FBI concern itself with getting someone fired?

As reported on Tucker Carlson’s Wednesday show, “two knowledgeable sources” have told Carlson that the chicken-scratch handwriting belongs to Bill Priestap, then the assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. Multiple sources have told John Solomon the same thing. According to the notes, they were trying to get Flynn “ admit to breaking the Logan Act.”

For reasons we’ve already discussed (and that also are detailed in Lee Smith’s highly recommended book THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT), Obama and his people wanted Flynn out. To them, it was bad enough that Trump was going to be President, which we know shocked the tar out of them. But, worse, Michael Flynn, the man who had wanted to pare down the intelligence bureaucracy, audit the Pentagon and --- perhaps worst of all --- discourage Obama’s precious Iran nuclear deal, was going to be in the White House WITH TRUMP, as his national security adviser. They were beside themselves. What to do?

They had been targeting him since 2014-2015, trying to make him look compromised with Russians. (All this is also in THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT.) But Flynn had done nothing wrong for them to exploit. At this point, they needed, figuratively speaking, a “kill shot.” It was going to take a major set-up, and Comey, on his own admission, ordered it.

They used transcripts from phone conversations Flynn had had with the Russian ambassador, which were actually quite appropriate, even expected, given his new post of national security adviser. The idea of prosecuting him for violating the centuries-old Logan Act, which prohibits private citizens from negotiating foreign policy and has never even been successfully prosecuted, was ludicrous; it was just a pretense for the perjury trap, I mean interview.

Flynn knew perfectly well that phone calls with any foreign official would have been listened to –- as memory serves, he even joked about that during the interview –- so it would have been ridiculous for him to lie or even to be less than completely forthcoming. In answering a question about whether or not he and the Russian ambassador discussed sanctions, he said (I’m paraphrasing) he couldn’t remember exactly but that he didn’t think so. An innocent mistake, but that’s all they needed, whether they really thought he had lied or not. Flynn had no idea they were investigating him, as THEY had lied to HIM about the purpose of the visit. Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, at Director James Comey’s bidding, had called him and pseudo-casually said something like, “Hey, congrats on the new job; we’d just like to send a couple of guys over and clear up a few things about recent conversations with foreign leaders. No big deal. Nah, you won’t need a lawyer or anything like that...”

We’ve learned that McCabe’s top legal assistant Lisa Page emailed Peter Strzok on how to conduct the interview so they'd be technically covered on giving Flynn the “1001” warning against misleading investigators --- without tipping him off that they were, well, investigating. They probably had a great laugh over fooling Flynn later, in bed, but we’ll leave that aspect of it alone.

The WASHINGTON POST got a big scoop out of this, as Flynn’s name was unmasked in the transcript of those phone calls –- we need to know who requested the unmasking –- and illegally leaked it to them. They media piled on, with MSNBC calling Flynn “literally a foreign agent.” On CNN, they said the assertion that Flynn was entrapped was “a made-up claim.” What are these worthless jackasses still doing on the air? Some of them got Pulitzer Prizes for their stories on what turned out to be a complete hoax.

A Pulitzer Prize going to this sort of garbage is like the Academy Award for Best Song going to “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” Sort of devalues the whole idea.

Anyway, that note reportedly from Priestap includes a couple of bullet points: 1) “If we’re seen as playing games, WH [the White House] will be furious,” and 2) “Protect our institution by not playing games.” If Priestap did write this, maybe it means he was having second thoughts about what they were doing.

At the same time, somehow I’m reminded of that odd “note to self” Susan Rice texted to herself the day Obama left office, the one that said Obama had told them in their January 5 meeting to do everything “by the book.” For most of them –- with the possible exception of Priestap; we’ll see –- this wasn’t about "not playing games," because they obviously were; it was about the appearance of not playing games.

Devin Nunes, appearing with Laura Ingraham on FOX NEWS Wednesday night, said that Flynn would “clearly” have a civil rights case and thought it would end up costing the government millions of dollars. He’s also hoping for some prosecutions (there better be!) and for Judge Emmet Sullivan to sanction the lawyers for Flynn’s prosecution (not enough –- they should be disbarred), who happened to be part of Robert Mueller’s special counsel team. Nunes also reminded Ingraham’s audience that the House Republicans had brought a lot of this information forward in 2018 and for their trouble had been ruthlessly mocked and their accusations treated like a joke.

The joke is now on Democrats and the media (I repeat myself) who refused to take it seriously. Sen. Chuck Grassley has reportedly asked Judge Sullivan to unseal the entire case at this point. That order might have to come down from Attorney General Barr, or perhaps from the U.S. attorney who has been reviewing the case at his request, Jeffrey Jensen.

Here’s John Solomon’s take.

    While Trump is in office...ALL this needs to be exposed and prosecuted...these people need to see the inside of GITMO, along with HITLARY who is the person who interfered with an election...and her crony, the head of state, Osama Obama.

    My heart and prayers are for Flynn and his family. My question and that if so many is WILL Comey and anyone ever have to pay for these crimes? Will it all just be dropped once Flynn is proven innocent or will those guilty eventually be paying in money and jail time?

    The judge in Flynns case and the fore person of the jury and the scum prosecuting lawyers should be financially ruined for their part in denying an American their due process! And maybe a linching party! Dispicable!

    I am wondering if you could comment on the draconian stay at home orders in Washington State. The governor has pretty much said until contact tracing and vaccination is available he is not ready to lift the orders. I am wondering if you could help us in some way, by bringing to light the desperate straits we are in. So many have emailed and called the DOJ pleading for help. Thank you!

    Why aren’t people being held responsible for their actions. The left seems to be able to do all kinds of dirty deeds, and never punished for same. They lie, and people are hurt. They are playing with peoples lives, and getting by with it. Why? Bill and Hillary, Nancy, Chuck, and company...all get no punishment. I know they will answer on Judgement Day, but why not now? Is everyone afraid? Thank you.

    Flynn, What is going on with our Govt and behind the scenes that those in their jobs can take and do what they did to this man who gave so much in the military and then gets scammed but now WHY and who is the top instigator ? Hope that this can be cleared and he can get back some of his life again and not be broke and write a book of what could happen to anyone now who stops this?
    Get Newsom of Calif when did we elect dictators of our lives as we have seen with this virus. Do I now own my own body? Voters beware. Stay in your prisons and not be free on a beach. Set up times and areas to be able to come? Let millions get out? We are tired . Let go of those under 60 and see who died and the ages. Get people back to work and their businesses and keep the rest out of the way for now like me at 77. Cannot protect all so move on. That one cannot even fish at a lake in Denver no one there and the police come by. What is this scary what is being done to so call protect us as the other thousands die?

    Michael Flynn is not the only General to be forced out. Over the years - the previous administration has been slowly replacing a General or Military Leader- one at time Thru early retirement or set up scandals. And to be replaced with Democratic friendly- with the goal to take over our Military. Who controls the Military , controls the government. Ask the Vietnam vets fighting with one hand behind their back.

    General Flynn is a fighter - and fought back. Message delivered - Look what the government did to him with their unlimited pockets. Every report should include how much the shadow government spent on getting a star General to lie. Message delivered - If we can do this to a respected public official our justice system can do it to anybody. Right Roger Stone ?

    Jack McDonald I agree with you wholeheartedly! All individuals who were responsible for this whole disgraceful situation of smearing General Mike Flynn and the United States, the FBI, CIA, etc. should have to pay out of their own pocket. They should have to spend the maximum time in jail that can be given. Those who would be tempted to try anything like this again should see that they will have to pay the price!!!

    Some people need to spend some prison time over this and I do not mean General Flynn.

    I hope this means that all charges will be dropped against Mr. Flynn. This angers me so much. I know it must anger you too. Thank you for sending the information!

    We the tax payers shouldn't have to bail out all the criminals who went after Flynn (making him lose his house and file bankruptcy), and all the others like Stone, by having the government pay for the civil rights case that Flynn and the rest will win. They should have to pay out of their own pockets for their crimes, lose all government benefits and spend the rest of their lives in prison because this weaponizing of our justice system is dangerous for our country and should never happen again. If we have to pay for their crimes, then there is no incentive to not do it again. These people will do anything to gain total power and control of we the "deplorables".

    Mr. Huckabee, I just got an email to share your news letter. I print a lot of your news letters and mail them and hand them out to people that don't computer, that includes my brother. I mail a lot of them and that gets costly but okay. People love to hear from you. ANITA

    I read 83 of the comments on one of your previous posts about the Flynn case and like me, the vast majority of people had the same question. Will these “Dirty Cops” ever be brought to justice? I think the answer is no. People that have no conscience or sense of right and wrong in politics are rarely held accountable for their actions especially if in six months we have a new President. Those “Dirty Cops” will be vindicated by the left and more people will, like General Flynn, be entrapped if they don’t hold the party line. Thank you,Governor Huckabee, for the newsletters. I also enjoy reading the comments by your readers. My best to Sarah. I hope you and your family stay safe.

    If there are no prosecutions, I know a LOT of people who will be outraged here in Ohio. Why does it seem that the liberals are a lot better at dirty tricks than the Conservatives will EVER be. Why don't we get tougher and go after wrong. We just seem to say "That was really bad" and then we let it drop. YUK.

    Now, I have had a question for 3 years. Why, when the OBamas moved into their new home in DC - at the same time Valerie Jarrett moved there too. Is it their war room? I have a really good intuition that the two of them are the magician behind the curtain. The ones who planned a lot of the dirty tricks. Do you think they'll EVER be found out -- or are we too nice to even bring it up because he was a President? Did Soros drag him into politics and now is dragging the new guy, 33 years of age, from the East. I forget his name but he certainly does make me think of the end of the ages and the antichrist. Next comes the "chip"? I know - God is in control but I think we must keep our eyes open.

    I have been following this story for 3 years, and I hope justice will prevail. In the meantime, I keep praying for Gen. Flynn and his family. He is not yet totally exonerated, nor are these bad people in jail. Thank you Mike for your honest reporting, and helping me to keep my faith in our Lord.

    Now, what can you do about our Tyrannical governor of California who continues to keep us in house arrest? What can we do? This virus is over...we must get back to work and living.

    Michael Flynn should sue the government for million(s) and it should come out of the FBI budget.
    The participants in this evil play should go to prison for a very long time!

    Don't think this should end up costing the govt. millions of dollars. The govt. is we the taxpayers and I'm not sure why we should pay for these butthead"s transgressions. The proper course would be for the whole bunch involved to be personally held responsible up to and including all of their assests. That include bank accounts, book deals proceeds, homes, cars and anything else. Some jail time would be in order as well. That would still not make Gen Flynn whole. He lost his home and his freedom and the freedom and mental anguish cannot be recovered. jack

    Governor Huckabee:
    I agree with Congressman Nunes, the judge and lawyers should be disbarred! I can't believe that our government has gone to hell in a hand basket over the last 10 bad. The people who are involved with the Gen. Flynn debacle all should be in JAIL period, can't collect $200, but go to jail NOW! I have no idea why they are all still out?

    All this is to much these people tried to overthrow a legal elected government of the people of this country. They should all be indicted for any and every kind of crime on the book and if found guilty sent you a super max prison . It seems to me that the leadership of the FBI has not gotten so far away from Hoover, it makes me even question do we even need the FBI ? If they go after people like Gen. Flynn what do we common every day folks have.

    Governor Mike! is such 'sweet' success when we 'see' right before our eyes 'prayers' and 'decrees' answered!
    God is consistently and constantly reminded me that this 'illegal curse' could NOT and would NOT 'rest' on our President or General Flynn...the TRUTH WOULD BE 'OPENLY REVEALED' AND HE WILL BE EXONERATED!
    We truly ARE the blessed of the Lord. God has blessed us with a great President 'for' the people and is 'now setting in place' all those that will be 'honorable and loyal' to the 'Office of the President' is good, thank You Lord Jesus!
