Department of Justice Drops Case Against Michael Flynn in Stunning Blow to Deep State

This is an enormous victory not only for Flynn and his family, but for the Trump administration and their drain the swamp ethos. 

And just like that, it was all over.

General Michael Flynn, a former White House national security adviser and one of the first targets of Robert Mueller’s “RussiaGate” conspiracy probe, has just been handed an enormous victory.

The Justice Department on Thursday moved to drop its case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, in a stunning development that comes after internal memos were released raising serious questions about the nature of the investigation that led to Flynn’s late 2017 guilty plea of lying to the FBI.

The announcement came in a court filing, with the department saying it is dropping the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.” The DOJ said it had concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”

The revelations in question included handwritten notes by FBI agents in which it appears that a plan to trick Flynn into lying to them were discovered.   The disclosure of this note had led to outrage among Flynn’s supporters and the White House, who saw this an nothing more than another Deep State ploy to cast aspersions on President Trump’s 2016 electoral victory.

The DOJ left no doubt in the decision.

The latest DOJ filing stated noted Flynn’s false statement plea pertains to a crime that requires a statement “to be not simply false, but ‘materially’ false with respect to a matter under investigation.” The filing said the government “is not persuaded that the January 24, 2017 interview was conducted with a legitimate investigative basis and therefore does not believe Mr. Flynn’s statements were material even if untrue.”

This is an enormous victory not only for Flynn and his family, but for the Trump administration and their drain the swamp ethos.
