After 10 months of Robert Mueller and his hand-picked, Democrat-stacked staff flailing and floundering, with not a hint of “collusion” between Donald Trump and Russians to show for it, the one notch on their collective revolvers is Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying, one time, to the FBI, after the campaign was over.
Now they might not even have that.
Excerpted from Byron York’s latest commentary at washingtonexaminer.com:
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.
Nine months later, with Comey gone and special counsel Robert Mueller in charge of the Trump-Russia investigation, Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the FBI in that Jan. 24 questioning.
What happened? With Flynn awaiting sentencing — that was recently delayed until at least May — some lawmakers are trying to figure out what occurred between the time Comey told Congress the FBI did not believe Flynn lied and the time, several months later, when Flynn pleaded guilty to just that.
None of those congressional investigators has an answer; they’re baffled by the turn of events. But they know they find the Flynn case troubling, from start to finish.
Does that encourage you to read more of the York commentary? I hope so. Because if you do you will find a wealth of additional information that may well leave you shaking your head in disbelief and anger.
The bottom line? Robert Mueller’s “Independent Counsel”
investigation Star Chamber, propped up with increasing desperation by mainstream media as month after month after month goes by with nothing to show for it, probably should not even have the one non-collusion related “success” it can show.
This is a pathetic charade that should never have started, and should have already ended.
