    Yates defended the investigation, but took issue with how Comey handled it Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that when the FBI interviewed then-incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn in January 2017, it was done without her authorization, and that she was upset when she found out about it. Committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Yates about the circumstances surrounding the interview, particularly the actions of then-FBI Director James Comey. "I was upset that Director Comey didn't coordinate that with us and acted unilaterally," Yates said. "Did Comey go rogue?" Graham asked....

    We are witnessing a vicious assault by enemies of all that is good, and our president is having to act in ways unprecedented in decades, maybe centuries. The biblical nature of good versus evil cannot be discounted as we examine what is happening on the streets of America. It’s Marxism in the form of antifa and the Black Lives Matter movement versus our very capable and very underappreciated law enforcement professionals, the vast majority of whom are fighting to provide us safe and secure homes, streets and communities. When the destiny of the United States is at stake, and it...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation could disrupt the case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, according to a top House Republican. Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox Business on Thursday that there are two factors that could shake up the protracted legal fight. "I think a couple things could intercede here. One could be that Durham or another U.S. attorney comes up with indictments," the California congressman said. "The second thing is that there could be more evidence that could show up." Durham's investigation, which Democrats fear could...

    An inveterate teambuilder, FlynnÂ’s conviction for deeds over words drew critical buy-in from external partners. The result was a robust synergism that proved lethal to AmericaÂ’s foes. Late evening on June 7,, 2006, U.S. Special Forces dumped what was left of Abu Musab al-ZarqawiÂ’s corpse onto the floor of the FBIÂ’s work space on an Iraqi military base. While the ISIS mass murdererÂ’s death represented the culmination of months of joint FBI/military operations, no festivity ensued that night. The animated Special Forces colonel who was the projectÂ’s intelligence director horsewhipped the agents in a sprint to confirm the biometric identification...

    The dispute over the Department of Justice's move to dismiss criminal charges against former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn will get a rehearing by the entire District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, the latest twist in the long-running legal drama that stemmed from the FBI's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016. The order was issued Thursday by the court. Called an "en banc" hearing, all 11 judges on the appeals court will sit in on a rehash of arguments that were made before a three-judge panel in June, which led to a...

    House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Wednesday, during a contentious exchange at a hearing, asked fellow committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) why his wife, a former Treasury Department official, unmasked Michael Flynn. Jordan had just finished questioning Google CEO Sundar Pichai over the search engine’s bias against conservatives and whether he would commit to not interfering in the upcoming election to help Joe Biden. After Jordan finished his questioning, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) called his concerns “fringe conspiracy theories.”

    Attorney General William P. Barr revealed Tuesday that he’s appointed another U.S. attorney to investigate requests by top Obama officials to “unmask” President Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Mr. Barr said he’s asked John Bash, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas, to look into the unmasking requests. He said that review will be independent of Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation `into the origins of the Russia-collusion investigation. “I’ve asked another U.S. attorney to look into the issue of unmasking because of the high number of unmaskings and some that do not readily appear in...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 24, 2020 | Jerome M. Marcus
    The Michael Flynn case has opened a new front in the woke war on objectivity: Within the federal judiciary, we now have judges taking sides in the cases before them. It’s a development directly at war with the political philosophy that animates our Constitution. It would, if left unchecked, destroy the neutrality of the federal courts. If that were to go, the judiciary’s legitimacy and public respect for its dictates would be destroyed. Now, [Judge] Sullivan has doubled down on his insistence that he need not be neutral: He has, as if he were a party to the case, filed...

    Expect indictments in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation by summer's end. That's what K.T. McFarland, a onetime deputy to former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, said this week on Fox News, referring to the emergence of "cold hard evidence" in the form of documentation. “Now, there is cold, hard evidence. It turns out that these senior officials in the intelligence community and the FBI, they all took notes. They all texted each other. They all had handwritten notes of meetings,” McFarland said on Monday. “And from what I'm hearing, the Durham investigation and...

    Jan Jekielek at the Epoch Times held an exceptional interview with General Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell a week ago where Powell’s entire timeline in regards to the government’s sham case against General Flynn was discussed.  This powerful interview is worth your time because it outlines the massive corruption surrounding the Flynn case that goes on to this day. We asked a week ago – What is Judge Emmet Sullivan waiting for?General Michael Flynn was lied to, set up multiple times before and after the Trump inauguration, excessively and to the point of illegally unmasked, targeted, ambushed in the White House,...

    Aberdeen American News ^ | May 14, 2020 | Art Marmorstein
    "The Travesty of Justice Ends for Michael Flynn” blared one headline last week. On the same day, another headline warned of “The Appalling Damage of Dropping the Flynn Case.” Both articles appeared in major national newspapers, and the writers must have known that thousands of critical eyes would be on every detail of their stories: important to get things right. But the law of the excluded middle should tell us that one of these stories is embarrassingly, egregiously and maybe even career-endingly wrong.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 10, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    The prosecution of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has already exposed the bad faith of the FBI and Justice Department in pursuing him even when they knew there was no basis for an investigation. Now federal Judge Emmet Sullivan is continuing the legal torture by appealing an order from a panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to drop the charges. President Trump should step in now and end this farce by pardoning Mr. Flynn. In an honest process, Judge Sullivan would have signed off on dropping charges once prosecutors and the defense agreed there is no case...

    Newly released documents about the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn show additional “exculpatory evidence” linked to a Justice Department review of the case investigators built against him shortly after President Trump’s election, his lawyers argued in a court filing Friday. “These documents establish that on January 25, 2017 – the day after the agents ambushed him at the White House – the agents and DOJ officials knew General Flynn’s statements were not material to any investigation, that he was ‘open and forthcoming’ with the agents, that he had no intent to deceive them, and that he believed...

    A "shameful" abstention by the U.S. in a United Nations Security Council vote Friday allowed passage of a resolution condemning Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank. The resolution was put forward by New Zealand, Malaysia, Venezuela and Senegal after Egypt withdrew it Thursday under pressure from Israel and U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. It was adopted with 14 votes in favor, to a round of applause, after U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power abstained. It is the first resolution the Security Council has adopted on Israel and the Palestinians in nearly eight years. Reaction from U.S. Republicans and Jewish leaders around...

    The only evidence of collusion found in General Flynn’s phone calls was between the Obama administration and anti-Israel forces at the United Nations. BY BRENT NAGTEGAAL • JULY 2 One month before President Barack Obama left the White House, the United States infamously broke with its historic precedent of supporting Israel at the United Nations, an institution with systemic bias against the Jewish state. Collective applause erupted in the UN hall when U.S. Ambassador Samantha Powers raised her hand to allow passage of Resolution 2334, which called any Israeli settlement in the land occupied by Jordan before 1967 as illegal....

    In possibly the single most predictable move in the long and sordid history of corrupt federal judges in America, District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan’s taxpayer-funded lawyer filed a request today for an en banc hearing before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. From a story at Law&Crime.com: U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, through his counsel Beth Wilkinson, has asked for U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rehear his case against the immediate dismissal of the Michael Flynn prosecution. The Thursday petition for rehearing comes after a three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit granted Flynn’s petition...

    Judge Emmet Sullivan filed an appeal Thursday of the 2-1 writ of mandamus ruling last month by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to dismiss the Justice Department case against former Trump National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (US Army Ret.) Sullivan is asking for an en banc hearing by the entire eleven judges on the appeals court. The main argument by Sullivan and Wilkinson seems to be, “Get off my yard!”: “The panel’s decision threatens to turn ordinary judicial process upside down. It is the district court’s job to consider and rule on pending...

    The case against Michael Flynn is a corpse. It’s dead. There is no case and yet, this legal circus continues. The former national security adviser under President Trump was the victim of a political assassination attempt. He survived, but the damage is done. Flynn was one of the boogeymen in the Trump-Russia collusion allegation, which was exposed as a total myth. Not shocking since zero evidence of collusion was ever unearthed in that effort by members of the liberal media or Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s hyper-partisan investigative team. It doesn’t mean that they didn’t try—they did—but came up empty.  The...
