Dropping the case against General Michael Flynn was the RIGHT move.
This is according to dozens of former prosecutors, judges, and lawyers who are now speaking out on the DOJ's decision to drop the case.
General Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia shortly before Donald Trump was inaugurated.
However, newly revealed handwritten evidence totally vindicates General Flynn!
The evidence appears to suggest that the FBI purposefully "set up " General Flynn.
Their goal wasn't to get the truth.
Rather, according to the handwritten evidence, the goal was to get Flynn to lie so that the FBI could charge him.
More details on the new-found support for Flynn, Attorney General William Barr, and the DOJ below:
Over two dozen former prosecutors, judges, and lawyers have all stated support for the DOJ's decision to drop the charges against Flynn.
Though Democrats are accusing General Barr of being corrupt, the reality is that the evidence shows there is no basis for a case.
The Hill confirms:
More than two dozen former prosecutors, judges and active trial lawyers filed a brief backing the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to dismiss the case against President Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The group of former government attorneys is asking U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan for them to formally file an amicus brief on the case. The group includes former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr and former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).
“The issue presented in this case is whether the court has discretion to deny a motion to dismiss to which the defendant consents, as Gen. Flynn has done here. The answer is no,” the attorneys wrote.
The group told the court they “are a bipartisan group of attorneys with extensive experience in the federal court system, including many who practice criminal law in this and other federal courts.”
Attorney General William Barr requested that the Justice Department drop the charges against Flynn of lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia shortly before Trump took office.
The attorneys argue that Sullivan does not have the legal right to override the decision from the prosecutor — in this case the DOJ — to dismiss a case they are prosecuting.
“There is simply no basis upon which this Court can review and deny the Government’s motion to dismiss, to which the defense has consented,” they wrote.
Earlier this month, 16 former Watergate prosecutors also asked Sullivan for permission to weigh in on the case.
This should not be a political issue.
The evidence is clear and the law is clear.
There is no basis for the charges against General Flynn, and all available evidence suggests that Flynn was "set up" by the FBI.
It was never a fail investigation from the beginning.
It has the appearance of a political set-up to destroy those close to President Trump in order to undermine his presidency.
However, there are many Democrats who appear intent on keeping the case against General Michael Flynn alive.
The Department of Justice may have dropped its charges, but a judge wants to push the prosecution forward.
According to the New York Post:
The federal judge overseeing the sentencing of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn — who refused to dismiss Flynn’s guilty plea after the Department of Justice asked him to drop the case — is going to tell it to the judge himself.
US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan is preparing to file a defense of his actions by Monday to his higher-ups on the Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Bloomberg News reported.
But the Friday release of declassified transcripts of the phone calls at the heart of the case could complicate Sullivan’s argument.
Flynn, President Trump’s National Security Adviser in the early weeks of his administration, was pushed out of his job after details of a phone call between him and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were leaked to the media.
Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the call in 2017, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigated it as part of his probe of alleged Russian collusion with Trump’s presidential campaign.
But he has asked for the plea to be withdrawn — and Attorney General Bill Barr moved to drop the case entirely, saying that the FBI’s investigation into Flynn was unjustified in the first place.
On Friday, when contents of the phone calls were released, the general’s backers said they proved Flynn’s account — and showed that the calls were aboveboard.
Senate hearings on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigations will begin on Wednesday.
It is likely that General Flynn's charges and unmasking will be part of the Senate hearings.
As Republicans in the Senate move forward to discover more about the plot to set up and frame President Trump, more evidence will be revealed.
