BREAKING News From The FEDS About Gen. Michael Flynn- It’s BAD

You don’t say…

Welp. Another so-called federal investigation into wrongdoing involving Obama-era deep state officials ends with another conclusion that hey, there’s nothing to see her. Move along. And shut up.

Federal prosecutors quietly closed an investigation into a leak of sensitive information regarding Michael Flynn’s phone calls with a Russian diplomat, according to The New York Times, which also reported that investigators found no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Obama administration officials.

The investigation, codenamed Operation Echo, centered on a leak to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, who reported on Jan. 12, 2017 that Flynn spoke by phone to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

The column set in motion a series of events that eventually led to Flynn pleading guilty in the special counsel’s investigation. Flynn admitted in a Dec. 1, 2017 plea deal that he lied to FBI agents in an interview on Jan. 24, 2017, regarding the substance of his phone calls with Kislyak on Dec. 29, 2016.

Republicans called for investigations into who leaked potentially classified information. The FBI had intercepted the call between Flynn and Kislyak as part of its routine surveillance of Russian government officials.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last year, during his campaign for Alabama Senate, that the leak of details about the Flynn-Kislyak call was ‘an absolute crime’ that ‘should be prosecuted vigorously.’

A couple things.

First off, Sessions may have been wrong about a lot of things when he was serving as Trump’s first attorney general. But he ain’t wrong about this: It IS a crime to leak sensitive information.

Secondly, and this has always been one element of the Flynn case that seldom gets mentioned: Flynn, a retired three-star U.S. Army, used to run the Defense Intelligence Agency during the Obama administration after spending most of his military career in intelligence.

There is NO WAY he was ‘unaware’ that his phone call was being ‘tapped’ by U.S. intelligence; that’s what U.S. intelligence agencies do, they monitor the communications of foreign officials (especially Russian foreign officials).

So the fact that he ‘lied’ to FBI agents never made sense. He knew they knew he, as an incoming national security adviser, had spoken to Russia’s top U.S diplomat.

BUT THE LARGER ISSUE IS THIS: OUR GOVERNMENT IS INCAPABLE OF SELF-POLICING, PERIOD.

It is completely out of our hands. It is completely out of control.

This disgraceful investigation/non-investigation is just the latest example.
