Michael Flynn claims DOJ, FBI and intel community harbors anti-American sentiments and were ‘out to get Trump’

WASHINGTON, D.C.- During an appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” on December 9th, former National Security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn reflected on underlying plagues which have somewhat permeated within certain agencies in the federal government. 

Namely, there is an “anti-American” sentiment present within agencies such as the Justice Department and even the FBI. 

During the interview, Flynn commented on how he was seemingly weaponized against President Trump: 

“First of all, we all know that this was an effort to get Flynn to get Trump, and that’s been very — made very clear.

“One particular senior FBI agent who has now put into an affidavit, which is a good word to use right now, and that statement that he made was outrageous.

“The other things that, you know — the 2016 campaign, 2016 transition, and then into the White House. This entire effort — when people say, ‘Hey, Mike, I’m sorry for what happened to you,’ what I tell people is don’t feel sorry for me.”

When reflecting on those who expressed sorrow for the manner in which he was seemingly used as fodder against President Trump, Flynn said those individuals should instead “feel sorry” for the president: 

“Feel sorry for this president, feel sorry for the presidency of this country, and be outraged at what they tried to do to this country.”

Flynn noting “what they tried to do” is a callback to how pundits were flabbergasted at President Trump winning the 2016 election, beating the projected odds, and the steps taken to effectively dismantle and denigrate the president’s every move thereafter: 

“And that’s really what this was about. This was about going after a president who won an election and they — by all rights, they figured oh, no way is he going to win.”

When looking back on the past four years of the Trump administration, Flynn posed the hypothetical scenario of what could have been accomplished if President Trump was left without the constant attacks on his every effort:

“So imagine these people that went after the president — or after President Trump and his presidency in our country — imagine if they had allowed him to just say, ‘Hey, let’s see what this can do.’

“We’d probably be double or triple in every category of economy, our military, everything. And look at what President Trump has been able to do despite the kind of assault that he’s been under.”

After providing this vision on what an unfettered Trump presidency could’ve yielded, Flynn stated that those elements that were detrimental to the Trump administration are still present to this day:

“And we’re still facing that right now in this current election.”

Flynn stated that what seems to be driving these sort of attacks within the political climate is “an anti-American sense” within portions of the population and the federal government:

“We have an element in our country, some of which is in the institutions of our government – the Department of Justice and certainly, the FBI and other elements like the intelligence community that just basically are…I mean, I think most Americans would agree or many Americans would agree that there’s an anti-American sense inside of some of these institutions.”

While the rationale for the sentiments alleged by Flynn aren’t clear, the former National Security adviser says that the motivations for such stem from a desire to not see America flourish:

“And they just do not want to see our country thrive in the way that I think Donald Trump has been able to do that despite the assault on him and his ability to lead this country.”

Back in November, we at Law Enforcement Today reported on how Joe Biden has already been engaged in phone calls with foreign leaders – actions quite similar to what Flynn was placed under investigation for years back. 

Here’s that report from November 10th.

WASHINGTON, DC- Remember when Gen. Michael Flynn was investigated under the so-called Logan Act and eventually had to resign after he allegedly had “conversations” with foreign leaders during the transition period between Obama and President Trump? You may recall that at the time Flynn had these conversations, he had already been named as Trump’s National Security Adviser for the upcoming administration.

Well, imagine our surprise when Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security adviser during the Obama Administration claimed on Monday that “foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden.” Odd…isn’t that exactly what Flynn was investigated for?

If we’re being consistent, Joe Biden has not been confirmed as the president elect, the votes have not been certified, and there is ongoing litigation. Using the same criteria the Democrats used in 2016, wouldn’t what Biden is doing be illegal?

In fact, it was Biden himself, who suggested in a White House meeting in early 2017 that Flynn may have been in violation of the Logan Act, which bans civilians from engaging in talks with foreign leaders.

Since Biden is not yet, in fact, the president elect, he is a civilian. Although the Obama administration officials deny that Biden made the suggestion, information obtained by U.S. Attorney John Durham seem to contradict that.

ON MSNBC Monday, Rhodes admitted Biden was in discussions with foreign leaders concerning “the agenda they’re going to pursue January 20th.”

Rhodes spouted off while condemning President Trump for contesting the results of last week’s bizarre election.

“The Trump people seem to be talking like they have some agency here. We’re going to have the pageantry already of the president-elect announcing his advisory board. He’s going to start announcing cabinet secretaries. The center of political gravity in this country and the world is shifting to Joe Biden. Foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden, talking about the agenda they’re going to pursue January 20th,” Rhodes stated.

“I remember, I was on the incoming side, where I felt the spotlight shifting to us in 2008 and I was on the outgoing side in 2016 when it was shifting away from us to Donald Trump. That’s just going to happen regardless of what they do,” added the snarky Rhodes.

The difference of course was that in both of the above elections, the results were not contested (unless you count Hillary Clinton who still thinks she’s president). In the case of this year’s election, there appears to be some shenanigans that the Trump administration, rightfully, wants looked into.

In 2017, Gen. Flynn resigned shortly after President Trump took office because he had been accused by Obama administration advisers of allegedly violating the Logan Act by engaging in communications with foreign officials, in particular Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. This was allegedly part of a setup orchestrated by the FBI in an attempt to undermine Trump.

Specifically, the Logan Act is a 1799 law which prevents private citizens from discussing U.S. foreign policy with foreign governments or their representatives. The law has never been fully prosecuted, including for the person the act is named after, George Logan, who was accused of subverting the foreign policy of the United States just after its formation by negotiating with France.

On December 29, 2016, Gen. Flynn had a phone conversation with Kislyak, which occurred long after the election results had been certified in favor of Trump. During the conversation, Flynn and Kislyak discussed sanctions placed on Russia by the Obama administration due to alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Flynn told Kislyak that he was hoping that Russia would refrain from retaliation for the sanctions placed on it by the US, and escalating the diplomatic feud between the two countries in the lead up to Trump’s inauguration.

The FBI recorded the conversation while monitoring the Russian ambassador. On January 5, 2017, Obama and his advisers met in the Oval Office during which Biden suggested Flynn could be investigated under the Logan Act. The meeting was memorialized in notes written by disgraced former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok that were released by the Justice Department last June.

In August, Sally Yates, former deputy attorney general under Obama and who briefly served as attorney general under Trump testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee and said she couldn’t recall if it was indeed Biden who brought up the Logan Act.

Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee in September that Biden didn’t suggest prosecuting Flynn under the Logan Act. “I would remember it because it would be highly inappropriate. It did not happen,” Comey said.

Gen. Flynn resigned his position on February 13, 2017 after being accused of lying to the FBI in January 2017. Flynn said that he had been given “incomplete information” about a telephone call with Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI regarding his conversation with Kislyak. Flynn moved to withdraw his guilty plea this past January, claiming that the government had violated the terms and conditions of his plea deal.

Flynn’s sentence was postponed, although in September the judge said he was not prepared to throw out the case entirely, despite the fact that the Justice Department said they were withdrawing their complaint against Flynn. The judge ordered the Justice Department to revisit its filings in Flynn’s case in late October.

So, the question becomes this:   If Flynn’s conversations were illegal and a violation of the Logan Act as Joe Biden had suggested in the January, 2017 Oval Office meeting, are Biden’s communications with foreign leaders now under the same violation?

In 2017, the election results had been certified; in 2020 they are not as of yet. What is the basis of the conversations Biden has had with foreign leaders? Are they relative to any sanctions imposed by the Trump administration or any other government policies?

Information derived from a laptop abandoned by Biden’s son Hunter at a Delaware computer repair shop indicates that Biden may have been involved in some questionable foreign business dealings, including some with alleged agents of the Chinese government.

Perhaps Biden should be investigated under the same auspices that Flynn was.
