The Great Sacrifice: How Lt General Michael Flynn Saved the Trump Presidency
Whatever Judge Emmett Sullivan decides tomorrow, one fact remains: on February 13, 2017 Lt General Flynn took a bullet and resigned to save the Trump Presidency. As REX explains, It was an act of incredible heroism and may well be the decisive turning point in POTUS Trump's war against The Swamp.
Today, it's an open question as to whether Lt General Michael Flynn, a decorated military officer of decades standing and a legend with an unblemished record, "lied" to the FBI.
In my opinion, the "lie" was invented by a rogue cop, Bob Mueller, conspiring with criminals such as the lamentable and disgraced ex FBI agent, Peter Strzok. Then they railroaded Flynn, by bleeding him financially, threatening a targeting of his son and as we have learned this last week, depriving General Flynn of exculpatory evidence.
The guilty plea was stamped by Judge Rudolph Contreras, who was kicked off the case and replaced by Judge Emmett Sullivan.
I'm confident Judge Sullivan will see what's happened as many of us are seeing it: a disgusting and despicable abuse of power.
The judge will do his best to ensure a fair outcome for General Flynn and may well rip the Mueller SC witch-hunt, for prosecutorial misconduct and contempt. Hopefully, his comments will be so harsh, Mueller's immediate dismissal will follow.
General Flynn's Resignation
But forget the legal niceties about "lying" for a moment. Let's return to the reason why Flynn resigned on February 13, 2017:
“Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology.”
Many people forget that Strzok and McCabe's strategy was not to trap Flynn in a lie. It was to get him to confirm what their transcript showed; that he had spoken to Ambassador Kislyak.
Be in no doubt. Obama and his goons had one objective after Donald J Trump was elected on November 8, 2016: to destroy him.
They were illegally spying on his team after the election, an astonishing crime in itself. Then, on 29 December, Obama deliberately engineered a call from Ambassador Kislyak to the transition team: he expelled some 30 Russian diplomats from the USA, an act so despicable, reckless and stupid, that it could have caused a major crisis between the two great powers.
Kislyak then did exactly what Obama knew he would do. He called the incoming NSA, one Michael Flynn, while the General was taking a break in the Dominican Republic.
General Flynn, sensibly, calmed the situation down with the Ambassador, reassuring him that sanctions may be on the table after the inauguration. All Americans should be profoundly grateful that Flynn talked the Putin government down, from a serious international crisis.
However, Obama's criminals didn't care about the national security damage they were causing. By late December 2016, they were out of control and fast running out of options. They had their illegally obtained transcript of the Flynn-Kislyak conversation.
Next step: they waited for their chance to attack Trump.
An opportunity arose on 15 January, 2017. Then VPOTUS-elect Mike Pence, on CBS's 'Face the Nation' (a very suspicious interview, in hindsight), denied contacts between the incoming transition team and the Russians. The comment was made inadvertently, in the context of questioning about the Trump-Russia lie. See here.
Obama's Perjury Trap: Get Pence & Trump, via Flynn
BUT the fix was in. Obama's goons knew Flynn had been in contact with the Russians. The VPOTUS had said Team Trump hadn't been.
This allowed Sally Yates, the AAG, to approach Don McGahan, Trump's White House Counsel, to point out that the Vice President, Mike Pence, had said on television that there were no Trump-Russia contacts. And that she knew that wasn't true, because Flynn had been in contact with them.
After the interview with Strzok on 24 January, the calculus facing Flynn was clear - "either I go down, or they're going to go after the Vice President for lying to the nation."
He took the bullet and resigned.
A Heroic Act
As this article shows, Mueller's dogs were a long way from General Flynn's mind, when Peter Strzok turned up at the White House on 24 January, 2017.
There's no doubt that if Flynn had denied he had spoken with Kislyak, Yates & Comey, working with FakeNews, would have tried to label VPOTUS Pence as a liar.
That would have opened the door to their #1 target - POTUS Trump, himself. But because General Flynn took the bullet, they failed.
General Flynn's resignation saved VPOTUS Pence and by extension, POTUS Donald Trump.
In my opinion, Obama's goons did not have expected Lt Gen Flynn to resign. Being corrupt, amoral scum, they expected him to try and save himself. The idea that someone would heroically sacrifice himself to save the President, would have shocked them.
But that's what Lt General Flynn did. And while I am sure that Judge Sullivan will deliver a blow to Obama's criminals tomorrow, whatever happens, the General will always be remembered as an American hero and one of The Republic's great patriots.
General Flynn, if you ever read this, know one thing: a grateful nation salutes you.
