Ever wonder why General Flynn was targeted by the left? Could it be that he knew too much?
That’s exactly what his lawyers contend, and this contention is credible.
The Deep State needed to get rid of Flynn. He had way too much insider information. And if Flynn joined forces with Donald Trump, it would be game over for leftists. Thus, the only move remaining is to frame Flynn.
Why? Because Flynn would sniff out what Obama’s hit team was trying and shut down the investigation.
Remember, all of this occurred under the umbrella of an attempted coup.
Thus, Obama’s hit team, the holdover swamp rats needed to get General Michael Flynn out in order to keep the coup going.
After Trump’s election, Team Obama moved into an entirely different phase. They still needed to dump Trump. But now they entered “Cover Your Ass” mode. Serious cya.
And it was during Operation CYA that the left formulated a plan to dump Flynn. Don’t believe me? The former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Andrew McCarthy agrees.
PLEASE WATCH @AndrewCMcCarthy @TuckerCarlson
"Flynn was not the objective he was the obstacle.
He’s going to find out that we investigated the Trump campaign; if you tell him about the investigation it is over.
The perjury trap is what has the chance of getting him removed." https://t.co/mrxI3pfs5Z pic.twitter.com/3eriejFT72

Of course that was two months ago. Now the tide has turned. As the investigations of the investigations continue to expose the Obama administration, General Flynn’s innocence is finally collaborated.
As the Gateway Pundit reports:
General Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell shared the following:
He was going to audit the intel agencies because he knew about the billions Brennan and company were running off the books,” Powell said, referring to former CIA Director John Brennan.
Powell began her interview noting at the 1:00 mark that when she took over the Flynn case three things were very, very troubling and egregious:
One – he was not properly informed of what the government had even disclosed to his defense lawyers prior to the plea.
Secondly, the government didn’t disclose a fraction of what it should have disclosed (i.e. the whole case was made up).
And three, he was prosecuted and threatened with the prosecution of his son. That’s how they coerced the guilty plea. It was just unconscionable conduct to threaten to indict him and his son the very next day and give them the Manafort treatment if he didn’t enter his plea right then, and I’m convinced it’s because they knew right then the press was going to explode with the Strzok-Page text messages and everything.
Then Powell drops the bomb at the 5:50 mark where she discloses that Flynn was going to audit the Intel agencies because he knew about the billions former CIA Director John Brennan was running off the books.
Money and Power
This persecution was about two things. Money and power. Leftists will do anything to garner both. And in the case of Michael Flynn, leftists were clearly winning. Especially considering Flynn’s plea bargain.
But, Flynn managed to develop some extremely important allies over the past few months. The New York Times chronicled Flynn’s road to freedom.
As NYT writes:
Sidney Powell, a firebrand lawyer whose pugnacious Fox News appearances had earned her numerous private phone conversations with President Trump, sent a letter last year to Attorney General William P. Barr about her soon-to-be new client, Michael T. Flynn.
Asking for “utmost confidentiality,” Ms. Powell told Mr. Barr that the case against Mr. Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser who had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I., smacked of “corruption of our beloved government institutions for what appears to be political purposes.” She asked the attorney general to appoint an outsider to review the case, confident that such scrutiny would justify ending it.
Mr. Barr did what she wanted. He appointed a U.S. attorney six months later to scour the Flynn case file with a skeptical eye for documents that could be turned over as helpful to the defense. Ultimately, Mr. Barr directed the department to drop the charge, one of his numerous steps undercutting the work of the Russia investigation and the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.
The private correspondence between Ms. Powell and Mr. Barr, disclosed in a little-noticed court filing last fall, was the first step toward a once-obscure lawyer and a powerful attorney general finding common cause in a battle to dismantle the legacy of the investigations into President Trump and his allies.
There’s a reason Powell had to communicate with Barr secretly. Swamp rats still linger in every nook and cranny. It’s hard to know who is trustworthy and who is an Obama holdover.
However, as he’s continued to prove, Barr bases his moves on the law. He doesn’t play to sides. Leftists claim Barr is Trump’s puppet. But that’s just a cover story created to deflect from the corruption they perpetuated.
The Trump Administration has taken more than it’s fair share of hits. And General Flynn was forced to make a deal with the devil. But that deal is clearly undone at this point. Just one more victory for the those trying to clear out the swamp rats. And one more thing for voters to consider on election day.
