Federal district judge Emmet Sullivan was ordered yesterday in no uncertain terms by the US Court of Appeals to comply with the US Department of Justice’s decision to drop the invalid prosecution of General Flynn who had been coerced into a false plea by FBI threats to indict his son.
The FBI investigation of General Flynn concluded that he had done nothing wrong and recommended closing the investigation. But Democrat operative Peter Strzok pulled rank and kept the investigation open. Released FBI documents prove that Strzok and the FBI decided to frame General Flynn. The documents show that the plan is “to get him (Flynn) to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired. . . . we should try to frame them in a way we want.”
In other words, the FBI abused its power in an effort to create a Russiagate scandal to hang around President Trump’s neck.
