On the day John Ratcliffe was finally approved as Director of National Intelligence –- by a completely partisan vote –- the Michael Flynn story got even crazier.

First --- and this has received no press till now --- British ex-spy Christopher Steele, author of the fictional anti-Trump “dossier” paid for by Hillary’s campaign and the DNC, was offered money by the FBI to collect intelligence on Flynn. (Who needs Fusion GPS to pay a spy when you have the Federal Bureau of Intrusion to do it?) This happened in a meeting on October 3, 2016, in “an unnamed European city,” according to Chuck Ross at the DAILY CALLER. In addition to “significant” compensation for his spying, Steele was paid $15,000 in expenses for his trip to this city. Nice work if you can get it, especially if your "intelligence” is garbage.

That’s right, Steele was getting paid by EVERYONE. I wish I knew his secret.

This new information seems significant in light of a fake story that was being peddled about an affair between Flynn and a Russian woman. This rumor was completely unfounded, and, as described in Lee Smith’s great book THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, was originally set up at an event near Cambridge University much earlier, in 2014. Obama and his team had had it in for Flynn from the start, mostly due to his intense disapproval of Obama’s Iran nuclear deal and also his intention to audit and streamline the intel bureaucracy. For one thing, Flynn was planning to audit the Office of Net Assessment, which was paying “confidential human source” (SPY) Stefan Halper to do...well, whatever it was they were really paying him to do.

Ross reports, “It is not clear how and when Steele came across the rumor, or if it was the result of the FBI asking him to look into Flynn.” But actually, we do know this rumor predates Steele’s October 3 meeting. It had already been planted and was ripe for the picking.

This “new” story comes right out of Inspector General Horowitz’s report, released last December. We learn from the IG that the FBI offered to pay Steele “significantly” to collect information in three separate “buckets” that were part of Crossfire Hurricane, all to establish a relationship between the Trump campaign and Russia. According to the IG report, an FBI agent provided Steele with a “general overview” of Crossfire Hurricane, which was still ongoing, including information on the “small analytical effort” (!) they had undertaken on Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.

In fact, according to the IG report, some FBI agents thought Steele had been told too much about Crossfire Hurricane.

As Ross reports, we didn’t really know until now about Steele’s investigation of Flynn; we knew about 17 memos that covered Trump (oh yes), Page, Manafort and Michael Cohen. But in just the last few weeks, a couple of documents on Flynn have surfaced:

First, a House Intelligence Committee transcript of the testimony of John McCain associate David Kramer refers to his belief that Flynn had had an affair with a Russian woman in the U.K.

Second, an FBI memo from January 4, 2017, says a “confidential human source” told the Bureau the woman had been present at an event Flynn attended in 2014 while he was head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. This has to be the event described in THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT; if you’ve read the book, you know the woman is Svetlana Lokhova, who, as Ross relates, became the target of a “whisper campaign” about an affair with Flynn. The gossip was that she had left the event with Flynn, but Lokhova’s husband says he personally picked her up that night. Anyway, this is how long the Obama administration and FBI have been trying to compromise Flynn.

Something else that just emerged about the Flynn case makes me think it might blow wide open. With thanks to Dan Bongino for pointing this out, President Obama’s “fixer,” former White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, is now attorney for...(drum roll please)...Susan Rice. Rice is under scrutiny now for her January 20, 2016, email “note to self” on her way out the White House door, the one that described an Oval Office meeting attended by Obama, Yates, Clapper, Comey, Brennan and (yes) Biden.

Ruemmler wrote in a just-released February 23, 2018, letter to Sens. Grassley, Feinstein, Graham and Whitehouse that Rice had written that memo to herself on advice of White House counsel, "given the importance and sensitivity of the subject matter.” She told them Rice hadn’t done it sooner because “that was the first opportunity she had to do so.” (Ah, of course it was.) How is it even possible to accurately memorialize a meeting that took place almost three weeks earlier? Unless, of course, your goal isn’t to accurately memorialize it, but to CYA, or C somebody’s A.

Curiously, when Rice was asked during a 2018 congressional inquiry whether she was aware of Comey’s investigation of Flynn, she said no, not until Comey testified. Given the nature of the January 2017 meeting as related by Sally Yates, it’s impossible to believe Rice. It’s hard to believe this serial liar about anything.

Bongino recommended this WASHINGTON EXAMINER story as a good example of the kind of thing Kathryn Ruemmler, as former Obama White House counsel, has been involved in as a “fixer.” Here we see her working in tandem with DNC attorneys to defend against a lawsuit by Carter Page, saying, unbelievably, that “the allegedly defamatory statements” against Page in the dossier “were substantially true” and “are capable of an innocent construction.” On what planet?

Flynn’s deputy national security adviser K. T. McFarland (whom I would guess has the best inside story of anyone), says that nothing about Rice’s email makes sense.

She told Shannon Bream at FOX NEWS that “it was an odd thing to do.” Why would you do this, she reasoned, unless you thought “somebody was potentially going to come after the fact and see that they’ve done something wrong.” Rice was making it look as though whatever they were doing was done “by the book.” What book is that, ESPIONAGE FOR DUMMIES?

McFarland said something else really interesting in light of Obama’s team debating whether they should include Flynn on classified “Russia” briefings. During a briefing three weeks prior, she said, “every other topic was mentioned,” including North Korea, China and ISIS, “but they didn’t mention anything about Russia and yet they knew, at that point, that they were about to sanction Russia for election interference.”

In other words, they had already been keeping Flynn out of the loop.

Stay tuned; much more to come. According to Sara Carter and John Solomon, Friday will bring more about the unmasking of Americans by the Obama regime, particularly John Brennan’s CIA.

    Mike, I am so tired of the Obama/ Soros / Clinton/ Rice/Biden/ Pelosi/ Schiff/ etc. breaking their necks to destroy President Trump. He is not perfect and NO ONE else is. But he loves this country and he will do everything he can to protect us. Be it Covid-19 or anything else. I pray that we can keep him in office 4 more years.
    Thank you, Barbara

    Hello Gov. Huckabee
    When do you think if ever are we going to see some real justice concerning all the malfeasance that went on in the Obama admin? I saw a news article the other day where they were reporting that AG Barr said that he didn't think there would be any prosecutions coming out of all this. What the hell? Why not? If there aren't then I'm afraid nothing's going to change. Our politicians will remain as corrupt and above the law as they have been for what, maybe the last 70 years. I totally believe that if the law was really followed that there should be some swinging from the end of a rope. I doubt that will ever happen but maybe life prison sentences? That might be a real possibility. I'm still hoping for the rope though as it'd give me a good reason to visit WDC once be fore I die. 71 and have never been there but I'd jump in my car and drive to see Hillary and B. H. O. swinging in the wind.

    The Michael Flynn case seems like a flagrant abuse of power and entrapment. The thing that bothers me is that the reason given by the Trump Administration for firing Flynn was that Flynn lied to or misled VP Pence about his conversation(s) with the Russian Ambassador. Were POTUS and VPOTUS really lied to by Flynn, and if so, what was the lie?

    FBI Director Wray has to know what Comey did to the Country"s Police Department and I demand he lets the public know what went on he can not remain in the dark about Flynn and the Mueller Farce and indignant Investigation the time has passed to remain idle. To the Lawmakers in the 50 year old range and younger the policies you are making are very destructive and I want to mention you may be 25 to 30 years younger than America's Seniors I find it you couldn't care less what time we have left to pursue the beauty of our Golden Years Restricting our movements looks to me are you Playing a role reserved ONLY FOR GOD I think what you have done and still are doing is the work of the Devil the Seniors have their Children thru out the country it is time to visit we have the time and resources to do so. Open up the Restaurants Hotels and all the shops we would like to visit on our way to our kids house> Don't be the the big stupid Wolf to impede our progress you just might get your ass kicked by a bunch of Old People.

    I would like to see some different polls 1, Which woman hates the most Pelosi or Clinton? Which man was the most worthless John Boehner or Paul Ryan which woman is the dummer one Maxie Watters or Shelia Jackson which (man) is the liar Shitffff or Nadler? Now those would be worth polling. When we talk about Obama's time in the office it was like a dog shifting on the lawn for 8 years then you have to repair the lawn thats what Obama did, he shitiff on America and Trump had to clean it up it took 3 years to clean the mess up Obama made it took 8 miserable shifty years to try and destroy America, that didn't work Obama. you may have gotten it done if Clinton would have won. Obama legacy mirrors that of Adam Shitff miserable cowardly little bastard. People from the Left put away your Hate for the next 4 days Please!! I am finished with that Lets go celebrate the life of all our soldiers With dignity and honor for the next 4 days I remember YOU. MAGA don't let our memories of OUR soldiers go to waste.

    Gov. Huckabee
    Can you please do research on the total number of deaths, covid or otherwise, that we had in the US so far this year and compare it the the total deaths each of the past few years? I question whether there is more deaths now than in the past. I feel we are being lied to on so many levels to keep that fear going. I trust you to give honest answers on this.
    Thank you for your time.

    Sir, does Obama's criminal actions mean that my cousin Richard will get an apology? Naw, and Obama will NEVER be made to pay for his crimes - he is an anti-America Marxist-Democrat!!!!! Actually, he is a minion of the Great Satan.

    It would be great to get to the bottom of the $15k to Steele. Was it paid in cash? Receipted? Evidence of Gov’t issued check cashed by him? The audit trail for the monetary exchange needs to be verified and then published. This would be further evidence against the 7th Floor parties involved.

    Yes, I agree, Obamagate is by far worse than Watergate. Yes as stated there were criminal prosecutions!! And there needs to be many criminal prosecutions with Obama, Biden, Hillary and a very long list of political crooks, who thus far have gotten away with so much for years!! And right along with the political crooks we have the MSM (Mostly Socialist Media) cooperating and hiding truth and facts and lying almost daily to the American people. Time will tell if any justice will happen. And time will tell, this November, if enough Americans have awakened to realize that the Democrats and MSM (Mostly Socialist Media) are totally against America, Americans and our Constitution, our way of life and our freedoms and liberty. In November fight against the agenda of the Dems and MSM. It is absolutely essential that Republicans, Conservatives, Patriots and any American who values freedom to vote in masses like has never been seen, to vote Republican. We are definitely at a tipping point and if God forbid the Democrats would gain the White House or keep the House or gain the Senate we as a Nation are DOOMED!! Vote Republican!!!

    I'm very saddened to say that I believe nothing will ever come about this. It's what I've believed for years. That Washington DC and the DNC are nothing but a bunch of lying, thieving, stealing, corrupt crooks! The American Mafia! And on another note, WHY does government have the power to steal money from the American worker and use it for ANYTHING that is considered UNESSENTIAL!!!! And I mean like any job that has been deemed unessential in this epidemic?? The blm, federal parks, usfs, all of they're toilets, etc? We live in a very remote area of Oregon ( and I'm not proud of this state) we are 120 miles from a McDonald's and large grocery store. It's very hard to make it without needing a rest stop.

    You can look for folks to die since they have gotten close to Hillary. She has a higher kill rate percentage than COVID19.
