Documents Show that FBI Entrapped US General Michael Flynn

General Michael Flynn, Wiki
image_pdfimage_print
Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, who is representing General Michael Flynn, says she now has proof that Flynn was set up to be fired and/or prosecuted. Newly unsealed documents suggest the FBI laid a trap for former Trump national-security adviser General Michael Flynn. Bill Priestap, the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence, after a meeting with James Comey, asked in a handwritten note, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” The meeting was an ambush. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to prosecute Flynn for making false statements now looks outrageous. Nevertheless, Attorney General William Barr has yet to prosecute Comey, McCabe and the rest of the conspirators. -GEG

Clip  from 2018 of former FBI Director James Comey bragging about the FBI skipping the usual heads-up to the White House Counsel’s Office about the interview with Flynn, a courtesy that surely would’ve ensured that Flynn couldn’t be tricked. (Time stamp 14:33 to 15:46):

With the latest revelation, the FBI’s “Russiagate” investigation now stands exposed as worse than amateurish — and more like a search-and-destroy mission.

Destroy the Trump administration, that is — not actual US enemies.

Lawyers for ex-Gen. Michael Flynn released just-unsealed documents that suggest the FBI abused its power to take out President Trump’s first national security adviser.

Two FBI agents interviewed Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017, just days after the inauguration. The claim that he’d lied to those agents about his contacts with the Russian ambassador triggered a Beltway fury that forced him to quit, ending his career.

Late that year, Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements in the meeting, though he’s now trying to withdraw his plea.

He clearly has reason to. The latest: Ahead of the meeting, Bill Priestap, then FBI head of counterintelligence, worked on a game plan. “What’s our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” go his handwritten notes.

“Get him fired?” The mere fact that this seemed a possible goal is damning — especially since the meeting plainly was an ambush: The FBI skipped the usual heads-up to the White House Counsel’s Office about the interview, a courtesy that surely would’ve ensured that Flynn couldn’t be tricked.

Then-FBI chief Jim Comey is even on tape, publicly bragging about that trick.

The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers. Police turned water cannons as tens of thousands of people protested in Berlin against lockdowns. Meanwhile, the media either demonizes anti-lockdown protesters or ignores them altogether.
