President Trump’s Justice Department, led by his appointee Attorney General Bill Bar and recommended by Trump-nominated Judge Timothy Shea, announced today that they would be dropping the case against disgraced ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
The move is an astonishing miscarriage of justice in the case against the treasonous Flynn, who pled guilty to lying to FBI investigators and cooperated with the Mueller probe before abruptly changing counsel and rescinding his guilty plea.
Putting the situation in extremely simple terms is House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, who oversaw the Russia probe and the investigation into Michael Flynn over his unreported work as a paid agent for foreign powers and his secret communications with Russian agents prior to Trump’s inauguration.
Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his illicit Russian contacts.
His lies do not now become truths.
This dismissal does not exonerate him.
But it does incriminate Bill Barr.
In the worst politicization of the Justice Department in its history.

The former Trump campaign advisor who briefly held the role of NSA was indicted in February 2019 for lying to FBI agents about his secret communications with Russian diplomats prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump, the discovery of which led to the firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates and the beginning of the Trump-Russia investigation.
Now the Trump team is using the cover of the coronavirus crisis to exonerate the President’s lackeys from crimes that they openly admitted to committing. The rule of law in America is on life support right now, and the only thing that can save it is a Democratic victory in the 2020 elections.
