EXCLUSIVE: Responses pour in from Dems and Republicans after DOJ drops Flynn case. The Department of Justice announced Thursday afternoon that it is throwing out their case against President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, which was initiated by former FBI Director James Comey shortly after Trump’s inauguration. For three years, prosecutors had insisted that Flynn had lied to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador, and the case against him had become a key part of the Mueller investigation. The report further stated that the Justice Department concluded that the FBI’s January 24, 2017 interview with Flynn was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis,” and was “untethered to, and unjustified.” Flynn has maintained that he was grilled and tricked during the interview, and newly released FBI documents last month revealed that FBI agents had discussed their intent to “to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired,” when interviewing Flynn in the White House in January 2017.

Brandon Van Grack, a special assistant U.S. attorney and the chief of the Foreign Agents Registration Act Unit at the Justice Department, submitted a notice of withdrawal to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Thursday. A reason for his withdrawal was not given, but soon after the Justice Department announced that it is dropping the criminal charges against Flynn.
Van Grack left the case facing rising criticism from Flynn's legal team and allies of President Trump, who believe he did not comply with the judge's order to produce all evidence in the government’s possession “that is favorable to defendant and material either to defendant’s guilt or punishment.” Van Grack rejected this argument. “Even though the investigation pertains to the abuses of the FISA process, not the FBI and DOJ’s misconduct regarding Mr. Justice Department is DROPPING case against Mike Flynn for lying to the FBI.

In court documents, the Justice Department said it dropped the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.” A proposed order presented to US District Judge Emmet Sullivan would dismiss the case “with prejudice,” meaning the same charges cannot be brought in the future.

In an exclusive report Fox News has ascertained that newly released data from declassified transcripts of Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) own committee investigation completely exonerates the president. This does not amuse Schiff so he and his handlers are trying to put the best face on a bad situation. It’s not working and he is panicking, according to sources close to him. Fox News: “However, intelligence officials told Fox News on Wednesday that Schiff has had his subcommittee staff director reaching out to heads of intelligence community agencies asking how Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell was involved and what role Grenell — a known Trump ally — may have played in the declassification and redaction process.”

MORE NEWS: DOJ to drop charges against General Michael Flynn Translation: We got caught. MORE NEWS: To wear a mask or not wear a mask? “Not one.” Breaking: DOJ Drops Case Against Flynn After New Documents Surface. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department on Thursday said it is dropping the criminal case against President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, abandoning a prosecution that became a rallying cry for the president and his supporters in attacking the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. The move is a stunning reversal for one of the signature cases brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.
It comes even though prosecutors for the past three years have maintained that Flynn lied to the FBI in a January 2017 interview about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Flynn himself admitted as much, pleading guilty before asking to withdraw the plea, and became a key cooperator for Mueller the special counel investigated ties between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.
The JDepartment said it had concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. This grotesque human being is now completely humiliated.

Lindsey Graham: Scope memo shows why legal foundation for Mueller investigation 'does not exist' Sen. Lindsey Graham said the legal foundation for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is "crumbling. " Graham, who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released to the public on Wednesday a less-redacted memo, written by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in August 2017, showing the scope of Mueller's mandate to investigate four Trump campaign aides and associates and their ties to Russia, as well as other allegations.
The South Carolina Republican made the case on Fox News host Sean Hannity's show that the second of three scope memos is further evidence that Mueller should never have been appointed to the role in the first place. "The legal foundation to justify Mueller's appointment, in my view, does not exist," Graham said. "That’s why this memo is so important. " The first scope memo was part of Mueller's appointment as special counsel in May 2017, after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
BREAKING: DOJ Drops Case Against Michael Flynn. The Justice Department dropped its case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Thursday, The Associated Press reported. Flynn pleaded guilty on Dec. 1, 2017, to making false statements to the FBI during an interview on Jan. 24, 2017. The decision came after the Justice Department found FBI documents related to the Flynn investigation that Flynn’s lawyers said are evidence that investigators set a perjury trap for the retired lieutenant general. Flynn broke his silence in his case on Jan. 29, 2020, saying in a court filing that he did not lie to the FBI and that he “regret[s]” pleading guilty in his case. He said he entered the plea deal because prosecutors had threatened to prosecute his son.
The FBI turned over a Jan. 4, 2017, memo which recommended closing a counterintelligence investigation into whether Flynn was working as a Russian agent. Peter Strzok, the deputy chief of counterintelligence, intervened to keep the case open. Sources say Russia probe transcripts affirm officials came up empty on collusion: 'Schiff is in panic mode' EXCLUSIVE: Transcripts of House Intelligence Committee interviews that have been cleared for release show top law enforcement and intelligence officials affirming they had no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, senior administration and intelligence community officials told Fox News on Wednesday.
This would align with the results of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — which found no evidence of illegal or criminal coordination between President Trump, the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016 — but the numerous transcribed interviews could raise further questions about committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s past statements saying that there was “direct evidence” of collusion. “Schiff is in panic mode,” a senior administration official told Fox News. Fox News is told, however, that the redactions were completed before Grenell took the helm as acting director this past February. Obama Judge & Liberal Activists Collude Trying To ‘Roger Stone’ McConnell, Issues Order Demanding Investigation | News Thud.
The Deep State is now going after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and are trying to force him to resign. A federal Obama appointed judge has issued an order demanding an investigation into Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). A federal judge in collusion with liberal activists is trying to stonewall the nomination of conservative judge Justin Walker. The liberal group “Demand Justice” requested that Walker’s confirmation be postponed because they claim McConnell pressured the older federal judge to retire so Walker could take his place. “The hearing on Walker’s nomination should not go forward until we know the truth about what ethical lines Mitch McConnell crossed to get Walker this seat,” Demand Justice said in a statement. Right on cue, Obama appointed federal judge Sri Srinivasan, chief justice of the court where Walker will work issued an order demanding the US Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts investigate.

DOJ Releases Rosenstein Scope Memo To Robert Mueller That Shows They Went Beyond Original Mandate – The Range. On Wednesday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) released a largely unredacted version of then-Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's August 2017 “scope memo” outlining the authority of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and the document reveals for that Mueller's authority went significantly past what was known beforehand by Olympic stretching.
I've said all along that Rod Rosenstein was the linchpin for the cover-up of the 2016 attempted government coup by the Obama DOJ, FBI, and intelligence community. Rosenstein oversaw Mueller's investigation and was a key player in the path that the probe followed. He helped put the country through two years of hell and a Constitutional crisis. This is no different from when fired and disgraced former FBI director James Comey was sent by Barack Obama to “brief” President-Elect Donald Trump on the phony Steele dossier. Rosenstein has denied the allegations and slammed the FBI., specifically Andrew McCabe. Dem Star Witness In Hearing About Trump’s Response To Crisis Plead Guilty In Sex Assault Case In 2019 | News Thud. The Democrats have a big hearing on the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic and their choice for a star a witness is turning heads. They picked Tom Frieden who plead guilty in a recent groping case to save himself some prison time: “Frieden was facing up to a year in jail for misdemeanor forcible touching, third-degree sexual abuse, and second-degree harassment charges, prosecutors said.”
The guy makes Joe Biden look like a choir boy and that is not easy but it does beg the question what in the hell is wrong with the left? From ABC: Former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tom Frieden avoided jail time on Tuesday after pleading guilty to groping a longtime family friend in New York. Frieden, who is also the former New York City health comissioner, turned himself in to police in August 2018 after the woman reported that he had grabbed her butt without her permission inside his Brooklyn apartment, court documents said.

Appearing with Lou Dobbs on Fox Business, John Solomon discussed why House Republicans have accused Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of ‘blocking’ Russia probe transcripts. DailyCaller reports Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee called on Rep.
Adam Schiff Tuesday to release 53 transcripts of interviews from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe, saying that the California Democrat has blocked the release of the documents. The Intelligence Committee voted to release the transcripts in September 2018. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence reviewed the transcripts to redact all classified information and completed that process in May 2019. A spokesperson for the office told The Daily Caller News Foundation on May 31, 2019, that the review would be completed “very soon.” But Schiff, who chairs the Intelligence Committee, has withheld the release of the documents for reasons he has yet to explain. Two interviews are of particular interest to Republicans. Share this: DOJ releases long-awaited Mueller scope memo, revealing the probe went beyond previously known mandate | News Thud.
The DOJ has released the long-awaited Mueller scope memo, revealing the probe went beyond previously known mandate. Fox News reports the Justice Department on Wednesday released a mostly unredacted version of then-Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s August 2017 “scope memo” outlining the authority of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller — and the document reveals for the first time that Mueller’s authority went significantly beyond what was known previously. Rosenstein, who later left the Justice Department for a law firm, oversaw Mueller’s probe and played a central role in its still-unfolding drama. He was the subject of a two-page memo written by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that outlined how Rosenstein allegedly proposed wearing a wire in the White House “to collect additional evidence on the president’s true intentions,” and thought the scheme was plausible because “he was not searched when he entered the White House.”
