The democrats, the MSM, the unhinged left will never get over Hillary NOT BEING POTUS. Instead they have participated in a collective sabotage of Pres. Donald Trump and anyone associated with him (in an attempt to blackmail them into turning on him). Not only that, they are hard-working to deflect attention and investigation away from the real crimes and collusion of Clinton and foreign entities, AND the DOJ/FBI under the Obama watch, in order to defeat a political opponent in an election.
I have, in these last few years, heard more than one knowledgeable legal-minded person warn, “Never talk to the FBI.”
The more I have seen and heard about this circus over these last two years I can understand why. But this is a very big warning sign, when advised to meet with them alone and not bring your lawyer(s). No such FBI recommendation was given to Hillary Clinton in 2016 (post Arizona tarmac meeting between her husband and then AG Loretta Lynch) in her meeting with the FBI over her highly questionable behavior regarding her private server and countless emails. Was it?
Byron York: Memo: FBI recommended Michael Flynn not have lawyer present during interview, did not warn of false statement consequences
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau’s interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 — the interview that ultimately led to Flynn’s guilty plea on one count of making false statements — suggested Flynn not have a lawyer present at the session, according to newly-filed court documents. In addition, FBI officials, along with the two agents who interviewed Flynn, decided specifically not to warn him that there would be penalties for making false statements because the agents wanted to ensure that Flynn was “relaxed” during the session.
The new information, drawn from McCabe’s account of events plus the FBI agents’ writeup of the interview — the so-called 302 report — is contained in a sentencing memo filed Tuesday by Flynn’s defense team.
Citing McCabe’s account, the sentencing memo says that shortly after noon on Jan. 24 — the fourth day of the new Trump administration — McCabe called Flynn on a secure phone in Flynn’s West Wing office. The two men discussed business briefly and then McCabe said that he “felt that we needed to have two of our agents sit down” with Flynn to discuss Flynn’s talks with Russian officials during the presidential transition.
McCabe, by his own account, urged Flynn to talk to the agents alone, without a lawyer present. “I explained that I thought the quickest way to get this done was to have a conversation between [Flynn] and the agents only,” McCabe wrote. “I further stated that if LTG Flynn wished to include anyone else in the meeting, like the White House counsel for instance, that I would need to involve the Department of Justice. [Flynn] stated that this would not be necessary and agreed to meet with the agents without any additional participants.” …
DC: Andrew McCabe Urged Michael Flynn To Meet With FBI Agents Without Lawyers
While Flynn’s lawyers said in the filing that he is remorseful for lying to the FBI during that Jan. 24, 2017 meeting, the activities of McCabe and the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn are sure to generate outcry about overreach in the Russia investigation. Flynn’s supporters have noted that McCabe and one of the FBI agents, Peter Strzok, have run into ethical and legal problems of their own.
According to the filing, McCabe wrote in a memo just after arranging the White House visit that he suggested to Flynn that attorneys stay out of the interview in order to save time.
This has been the goal all along…
The Hill: House Dems talking more about impeaching Trump
House Democrats are talking more about impeachment following a new round of allegations against President Trump, but they make clear that the time is not right — at least not yet.
While Democratic leaders say they want to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report, they will likely come under enormous pressure from the left to move forward with impeachment proceedings at some point in 2019…
These people are Marxist fascists.
