Washington DC and The Holy Land>Flynn Exonerated: DOJ drops criminal case against General Flynn

WASHINGTON (AP) — 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 Trump and his supporters in attacking the FBI’s Russia investigation.

The move is a stunning reversal for one of the signature cases brought by special counsel Robert Mueller. It comes even though prosecutors for the last three years had maintained that Flynn had lied to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in a January 2017 interview. Flynn himself admitted as much, and became a key cooperator for Mueller as he investigated ties between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.

In court documents being filed Thursday, the Justice Department said it is dropping the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.” The documents were obtained by The Associated Press.

The Justice Department said it had concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview on January 24, 2017 was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”

The @TheJusticeDept dropping charges against Michael Flynn is outrageous. Flynn:

-lied to federal law enforcement
-violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act
-plead guilty

But because he is a friend of @realDonaldTrump, he gets special treatment. There is a cancer within DOJ.

Well, the Judge wasn't going to grant the motion to withdraw plea on the merits, so all we have left is political manipulation of the justice system.

You guys cheer it up.

MASSIVE judicial wins for the MAGA agenda:

- DOJ drops Flynn prosecution
- Texas Supreme Court frees Shelley Luther
- Ruth Bader-Ginsberg of all people smacks down a 9th circuit reversal ruling on an immigration case against a consultant in California

What an intriguing 24 hours.
