Shortly after my colleague Sara Carter and I began reporting in 2017 on the possibility that the FBI was abusing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to spy on Americans during the Russia investigation, I received a call. It was an intermediary for someone high up in the intelligence community.

The story that source told me that day — initially I feared it may have been too spectacular to be true — was that FBI line agents had actually cleared former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn of any wrongdoing with Russia only to have the bureau's leadership hijack the process to build a case that he lied during a subsequent interview.

In fact, my notes show, the source used the words "concoct a 1001 false statements case" to describe the objections of career agents who did not believe Flynn had intended to deceive the FBI. A leak of a transcript of Flynn's call with the Russian ambassador was just part of a campaign, the source alleged.

The tip resulted in a two-and-a-half-year journey by myself and a small group of curious and determined journalists like Carter, Catherine Herridge, Greg Jarrett, Mollie Hemingway, Lee Smith, Byron York, and Kimberly Strassel to slowly peel back the onion.

The pursuit of the truth ended Thursday when the Justice Department formally asked a court to vacate Flynn's conviction and end the criminal case, acknowledging the former general had indeed been cleared by FBI agents and that the bureau did not have a lawful purpose when it interviewed him in January 2017.

Attorney General William Barr put it more bluntly in an interview Thursday: "They kept it open for the express purpose of trying to catch, to lay a perjury trap for General Flynn."

To understand just how dramatic a turnaround Thursday's action was, one has to go back to the headlines of 2017 fanned by the likes of The Washington Post, The New York Times, MSNBC, CNN and others and told by a host of former Obama administration officials and their Democratic allies in Congress.

Flynn was suspected of violating the Logan Act by talking with the Russian ambassador. He may have been compromised by a 2015 visit with Vladimir Putin at a Russia Today event. He lied to the FBI. He may have been an agent of Russia and involved in colluding to hijack the election. He betrayed his country.

All of that was alleged, it turns out, without proof. And then Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team pressured Flynn to plead guilty to falsely telling FBI agents that he did not discuss sanctions with Russia's ambassador. It turns out that wasn't true either.

A draft FBI report of the interview made public this week showed Flynn didn't deny it and instead suggested it was a possibility he did discuss sanctions and Russia's response to them.

Here are the 12 revelations that unraveled the false narrative and Mueller's prosecution of a 33-year military veteran:

1. Flynn's RT visit with Putin wasn't nefarious . In fact, it was cleared by his former employer, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and he received a defensive briefing before he went to Russia and debriefed with U.S. intelligence after he returned. https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/423558-exculpatory-russia-evidence-about-mike-flynn-that-us-intel-kept-secret

2. Not a Russian agent . A Justice Department memo exonerated Flynn of Russia collusion on Jan. 30, 2017, nearly a year before he pled guilty. "The FBI did not believe Flynn was acting as an agent of Russia," a DOJ memo states. https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/fbis-russia-collusion-case-fell-apart-first-month-trump-presidency

3. Case closed memo . FBI agents wrote a memo to close the investigation of Flynn on Jan. 4, 2017, writing they found "no derogatory" evidence that Flynn committed a crime or posed a national security threat. FBI management then ordered the closure to be rescinded and pivoted toward trying lure Flynn into an interview. https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/fbi-found-no-derogatory-russia-evidence-flynn-planned

4. DOJ heartburn . Senior Justice officials expressed concern and alarm at the way the FBI was treating Flynn, including trying to interview him without the normally required notification to the Trump White House. Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates expressed significant concern that White House officials weren't being advised. "The interview was problematic from Yates' perspective because, as a matter of protocol and courtesy, the White House Counsel's Office should have been notified beforehand," a DOJ memo stated. https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/yates-other-obama-doj-officials-sounded-alarm-about-fbis-treatment

5. Logan Act threat wasn't real . DOJ officials immediately did not believe Flynn could realistically be prosecuted under the Logan Act for his conversations with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified he was told such a prosecution was a "long shot," and former Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord "said that upon learning of Flynn's phone calls with Ambassador Kislyak, a Logan Act prosecution seemed like a stretch to her," DOJ memos say. https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/yates-other-obama-doj-officials-sounded-alarm-about-fbis-treatment

6. Unequal treatment. James Comey bragged in a videotaped interview that he authorized the FBI to try to conduct a Flynn interview without the proper notifications and protocol, hoping to catch Flynn and the new Trump White House off guard. In other words, they didn't follow procedure or treat Flynn like others when it came to due process. Comey said the tactic was "something I probably wouldn't have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized administration." https://www.foxnews.com/politics/comey-admits-decision-to-send-fbi-agents-to-interview-mike-flynn-was-not-standard

7. Disguising a required warning . FBI officials debated whether they could avoid, disguise or slip in the required FBI admonition against lying to agents at the start of Flynn's interview to keep him off guard. "It would be an easy way to just casually slip that in," FBI lawyer Lisa Page texted during the discussions. https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/breaking-fbi-notes-detail-effort-catch-flynn-lie-get-him.

8. "Playing games. " Then-Assistant Director for Counterintelligence William Priestap wrote in handwritten notes that he feared the bureau was "playing games" with the Flynn interview in an effort to get the national security adviser to lie so "we can prosecute him or get him fired." https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/breaking-fbi-notes-detail-effort-catch-flynn-lie-get-him

9. No deception . The FBI agents who interviewed Flynn, including Peter Strzok, did not believe Flynn intended to lie or be deceptive in his interview. "Strzok provided his view that Flynn appeared truthful during the interview," a memo from Mueller's team stated. https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/yates-other-obama-doj-officials-sounded-alarm-about-fbis-treatment

10. No actual denial. The FBI agents who interviewed Flynn indicated in a draft report that Flynn did not directly deny talking to Kislyak about sanctions, as he was accused by Mueller. Instead they noted he couldn't remember, wasn't sure and even conceded it was possible. Here's a direct quote from the draft interview memo. "FLYNN stated it was possible that he talked to KISLYAK on the issue, but if he did, he did not remember doing so." That's a far cry from a direct denial. https://int.nyt.com/data/documenthelper/6936-michael-flynn-motion-to-dismiss/fa06f5e13a0ec71843b6/optimized/full.pdf

11.) Interview Reports Edited. According to evidence DOJ disclosed this month, FBI officials subsequently edited the original Flynn interview report. After Strzok and fellow special agent Joe Pientka interviewed the Trump adviser, Pientka wrote the original interview report, known as a 302, then Strzok heavily edited it, so much so that he worried he was "trying not to completely re-write" the memo. Then FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who neither attended the interview nor is an agent, edited it again, according to the DOJ evidence. And then that version of the 302 was never given to the court. Instead, a substitute summary of the interview written months later was presented as official evidence, an act current and former FBI officials told me was extraordinarily unusual. https://www.wsj.com/articles/rewrite-in-flynns-case-shows-fbi-needs-reform-11588541993

12.) Evidence withheld. The biggest, and perhaps most troubling discovery, according to DOJ officials and Flynn's lawyers, was the majority of the above evidence was withheld from the courts and Flynn's legal team for years despite repeated orders that all exculpatory Brady materials, i.e. evidence of innocence, be produced.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan must still decide whether to accept the Justice Department's request to dismiss the charges. And then the judge must decide whether the prosecutors and agents in the case should face punishment.

In the meantime, Flynn lost three years of his life, his job, and his home and endured crushing legal bills and public shame. That what makes this dirty dozen list so egregious to critics of this investigation.

Do try to keep up.  It's OLD news.

With Special Counsel Robert Mueller expected to indict both Michael T. Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, and Flynn’s son, Michael G. Flynn, in connection with the investigation into Russia’s intervention in the 2016 election, speculation is mounting as to whether the elder Flynn will plead guilty to help his son, and in the process help himself. The elder Flynn’s lawyers recently stopped communicating with the President’s legal defense team, which some interpret as Flynn preparing to cooperate with Mueller. While Flynn certainly is focused on his own potential liability, that his son is a “subject” of the investigation places the elder Flynn in the difficult position of cooperating and accepting criminal culpability, rather than fight, in order possibly to prevent his son from being prosecuted.

Andrew McCabe, who took over as acting FBI chief in 2017 before he too was ousted in 2018, said the department's decision was "pure politics designed to please the president".

He said the FBI "received incontrovertible evidence" Flynn spoke to the ambassador multiple times and tried to influence the actions of Russian officials.

"The Department's position that the FBI had no reason to interview Mr Flynn pursuant to its counterintelligence investigation is patently false, and ignores the considerable national security risk his contacts raised."

Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler, who chairs the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, said in a statement the move was "outrageous".

Mr Nadler said he would be rescheduling a hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr as soon as possible to explain the decision.

He added that he would ask the justice department's inspector general to investigate the matter.

"The evidence against General Flynn is overwhelming," Mr Nadler said. "We are not supposed to get special treatment because we are friends with the President."

Nadler is a co conspirator in all of this because he knew that the witnesses in the transcripts all said there was no evidence of Trump campaign collusion.

He is also guilty of not going on the record to correct them after they state one thing in private, but totally different bullshit in front of cameras.

Fortunately for him and Schiff, they both represent districts that are comprised of mostly leftist loonville, and will never be voted out because.

Andrew McCabe,

Is that the same Andrew McCabe that signed under oath the truthfulness of FISA warrants secured on a never validated or verified dossier?  That McCabe?

The origin of his dramatic fall stems from an internal review conducted by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz . That report -- the details of which have not been publicly released -- is said to conclude that McCabe misled investigators about his role in directing other officials at the FBI to speak to The Wall Street Journal about his involvement in a public corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation, according to a source briefed on it. Source:  https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/16/politics/andrew-mccabe-fired/index.html

I just want to make sure we're talking about the same "upstanding" bastion of sincerity and truthfulness.   We are aren't we?

PS:   IG Horowitz happens to be an Obama appointee.   Just sayin.

I still see no answer to my pointed question.  How far would YOU go to protect YOUR children?  What's a bridge too far for you?  I know my answer was given.

Ok..   HONEST Answer....   Comey and company investigated NEW information that became available thanks in part to Hillary's best bud Umas hubby and his dick shots.  By the way, Comey had indicated in CONGRESSIONAL testimony that he would in fact do so if new information came to light.

Comey then went on to note detail after detail that would have had my clearances revoked or put in prison, but he let her off since there was "no intent".   Yeah, that chaffed my ass as well as all of the other people I worked with.   We would have been fed to the wolves and she didn't even get a slap on the wrist.

Even if he did, there's actually nothing wrong with that. There's nothing remotely nefarious about an incoming administration advising a foreign power about what they are likely to do once they take power. It is common, and it is why a Logan Act prosecution was considered "a stretch."

When  the government essentially destroys you financially and emotionally, then threatens to do the same to your children for the sake of a guilty plea or a confession like they did with LTG Flynn, it's called coercion.  Sadly Democrats had to be forced to do what they promised and declassify and release the documents for the right thing to be done.  Unbelievably they are still denying any wrong doing.

Fortunately for LTG Flynn, it leaves everybody involved open for civil lawsuits, of which I hope LTG Flynn follows through with.

In the meantime, Flynn lost three years of his life, his job, and his home and endured crushing legal bills and public shame. That what makes this dirty dozen list so egregious to critics of this investigation.

Decent people will never feel sorry for Michael Flynn.  Among other things, he stood on stage at the GOP convention in 2016 and took part in the  "lock her up " chant from the idiots in the crowd. At that time, Hillary Clinton had been cleared of criminal charges by the FBI, and was not going to be "locked up". Flynn doesnt have a classy bone in his body. 

He also later took part in retweeting conspiracy theories and had a son , on his staff, that posed on facebook wearing an Infowars tee shirt.  These are not good people.

Decent people have no need to feel sorry for General Flynn.  They already know he was railroaded by one of if not the most corrupt administrations this country have ever had to endure.  They will joyously celebrate when his persecutors are legally prosecuted for their illegalities and his previous corrupt legal team is outed and financially destroyed and hopefully "professionally" destroyed also.

We look forward to the day the perp walks begin for the parasites of the previous administration when they're finally brought to justice.

No matter. The seeder is censoring comments that are truthful about Flynn.

Decent people will never feel sorry for Michael Flynn.

You don't need to feel sorry for him. You just need to care about fairness and the rule of law. You need to care abut justice. I don't care if Michael Flynn is the worst person who ever walked the Earth. This is not how our justice system is supposed to function. This was offensive to every concept of justice we have.

Well, of course it was; but if you exonerate Flynn, you can't nail Trump, and nailing Trump is what all the noise and whining have been about for the last three years.

They may have committed sedition, the domestic form of treason.  Treason involves dealing with an enemy state.  Sedition does not require an enemy state, just illegal activity used in an attempt to bring down the head of state.

they would have to prove the reporter knew the info being reported was bs = not easy or likely to be proven.

however, 

any politician who knew the info was false and still promoted the resistance movement against trump is in jeopardy here.

this one is a slam dunk  =  they have all the evidence needed here.

Many in the Obama admin did this by testifying before Congress that they saw no evidence of Collusion, then ran in front of CNN and MSDNC cameras to say they have witnessed mass amounts of collusion.

A clear pattern of bad faith from a prosecutorial standpoint. What this implies for politics, government, and the use of force is even darker.

Solomon deserves a pat on the back for his reporting along with, yet again, the Federalist. While the CNNs, New York Times etc of the world spent years just copying and pasting  Democratic press releases, they did actual reporting and brought the truth to light. Anyone who wants to understand what's been happening the last few years with these various "scandals" has to pay attention to Solomon, Mollie Hemingway, Andy McCarthy etc..

Since the Trump Presidency has began the same pattern has played out. The left wing MSM puts out lies to push an anti-Trump narrative, (Flynn, so many different false stories during "Russia Collusion" including most spectacularly,  the dossier,  Kavanaugh, Covington, FISA abuse etc....) Then these alternative organizations start actually digging into the story and it turns out the MSM and their Democratic masters were lying yet again. By then, of course, the damage has been done. Reputations ruined, fake narratives believed by gullible democrats who  will then just say "move on" when confronted with overwhelming evidence of their falseness

You'd think, at some point, they'd be tired of being wrong all the time and get mad at being misled by supposed news organizations.  Nope. They'll bite hook, line and sinker on the next "scandal."
