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.

“Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case,” Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney reviewing the Flynn case, said in a statement. “I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

What this says, in plain English, is that Yates/Comey/McCabe/Strzok/Page and Co. concocted a bogus reason to interrogate Flynn, and then lied about his answers. Tar and feather. pic.twitter.com/K95RqcUZwS— Mike (@Doranimated) May 7, 2020
In its motion to dismiss charges against Flynn, DOJ says it's not just that the FBI never had a legitimate legal reason to interview Flynn, but that there's not sufficient evidence that Flynn actually lied to the FBI during its illegal January 24, 2017 ambush interview of Flynn. pic.twitter.com/AvtUsXGcRL— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) May 7, 2020
“Indeed, Mr. Flynn’s request that Russia avoid “escalating” tensions in response to U.S. sanctions in an effort to mollify geopolitical tensions was consistent with him advocating for, not against, the interests of the United States.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️🇺🇸— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) May 7, 2020

You think you're bent now over Barr's DOJ dropping the Flynn charges, just wait till Durham indicts Brennan, Comey, Strzock and Page. Not even Hillary and Obama are safe.
