I wouldn't hold your breath. I suspect at most you'll get a report that says the FBI was sloppy and didn't follow procedures, but no recommendations for prosecutions.This is a good first step toward a reckoning.
I'm curious with this part for the moment. Did the US intelligence come to this conclusion by investigating everything themselves or did they rely on a report from the DNC and DCCC?GRU, Russia's military unit which was later determined by US Intelligence to be responsible for hacking the DNC and DCCC in 2016.
Its US intel. It’s all over the Mueller report if I remember correctly. DNC concluded it was Russia almost immediately but at a minimum Trump was told this in intel briefings by August 2016.I'm curious with this part for the moment. Did the US intelligence come to this conclusion by investigating everything themselves or did they rely on a report from the DNC and DCCC?
I doubt it, but Flynn is likely exposed beyond the facts of this case. It’s never been entirely clear why he got off so easy with the special counsel. The Stone warrants show that the government is still interested in Flynn regarding Israeli interference, to name one of many possible angles.Barr should be impeached! Can this case be re-opened by the next justice department?
Let's not forget the judge in the case questioned if he couldn't be charged with treason.Do you believe Flynn to be innocent of the crimes to which he plead guilty?
It is my understanding that it has yet to be determined. If the judge dismisses the case "with prejudice," then it's over. But if he does not, then the justice department could bring new charges against Flynn. I could be wrong about that. I'm not an attorney and I don't play one on TV.Can this case be re-opened by the next justice department?
In court documents filed Thursday, the Justice Department said that after reviewing newly disclosed information and other materials, it agreed with Flynn’s lawyers that his interview with the FBI should never have taken place because his contacts with the Russian ambassador were “entirely appropriate.”
The U.S. attorney reviewing the Flynn case, Jeff Jensen, formally recommended dropping it to Barr last week, the course of action publicly recommended by Trump, who appointed Barr to head the Justice Department.
Barr has increasingly challenged the federal Trump-Russia investigation, saying in an interview last month that it was started “without any basis.” In February, he overruled a decision by prosecutors in the case of Roger Stone, a longtime Trump friend and adviser, in favor of a more lenient recommended sentence.
Jensen said in a statement that he “briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”
The department’s action comes amid an internal review into the handling of the case and an aggressive effort by Flynn’s lawyers to challenge the basis for the prosecution. The lawyers cited newly disclosed FBI emails and notes last week to allege that Flynn was improperly trapped into lying when agents interviewed him days after Trump’s inauguration.
None of the documents appeared to undercut the central allegation that Flynn had misled the FBI.
In recent months, Flynn’s attorneys have leveled allegations about the FBI’s actions and asked to withdraw his guilty plea. A judge has rejected most of the claims and not ruled on others, including the bid to revoke the plea.
I just looked on google. There isn't a single article out there calling for his impeachment over this.LOL the left got their marching orders out pretty quickly.
