Check the last line of that quote, beginning with “moreover.” They say they don’t think they can prove the lie itself in addition to the materiality.

1) On the substance of the Flynn withdrawal: What separates our FBI from, say--ahem--Russian secret police is the requirement that they articulate the basis of an interview--an alleged crime. They can't just wander in an ask anybody anything.

2) FBI was hot on its Logan Act theory, but never opened an actual investigation on that basis. It instead used an open counterintelligence investigation (in which they'd found nothing on collusion) as its excuse to interview Flynn on completely unrelated points.

— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) May 7, 2020


3) That's just not legit, and why DOJ now and correctly says that nothing Flynn said in that interview was "material" to the only open investigation--counterintelligence/collusion. DOJ is right to care about this important principle.

4) On Comey: The pages in the filing (6-7) on Comey's insubordinate behavior are eye-watering. They are a repeat of his behavior in the Clinton case (where he went around the AG).

5) He ignores the collective view of DOJ leadership and refuses to brief WH on the Flynn calls, then also ignores a Yates call so that his agents can sandbag Flynn. (And then later brags about this to Nicole Wallace?) McCabe doesn't come off looking very stellar either.

Should we pull up Flynn’s allocution?
Edit: I agree they say that, but provide no reasoning for it.

6) On Mueller: What the hell? Why was Rosenstein directing Mueller to look into Logan Act issues when his own department had dismissed that idea ? (More on that in my upcoming column..)

The January 5, 2017 meeting in which Sally Yates said she learned of Flynn-Kislyak call from President Obama himself--Susan Rice and VP Joe Biden were in that meeting, too, per Rice's famous memo-to-self. pic.twitter.com/6Wpdvkte0y

Yeah, no agenda there on the part of the FBI. None.

There is one answer to that question and only one. Truth. Period.

You've got to love the left and the complete lack of hesitation on even the most ridiculous pivots.
