Wall Street Journal Demands Trump Declassify Documents Used To Frame General Flynn

Dec. 14, 2018 (EIRNS)—“The Flynn Entrapment,” the Wall Street Journal’s lead editorial Dec. 13, reveals Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s numerous frauds on the court of U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, in an attempt to procure the conviction of Trump’s former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn for “lying to the FBI.”

The editorial demonstrates that Mueller, the FBI’s #2 Andy McCabe and Peter Strzok lied to Flynn about the subject of the interview, and recounts many of the details covered earlier in this Morning Briefing. The Journal reports, “According to the FBI summary of the interview—known as a ‘302’—Mr. McCabe and FBI officials,” including later lead agent Peter Strzok,

“ ‘decided the agents would not warn Flynn that it was a crime to lie during an FBI interview because they wanted Flynn to be relaxed and they were concerned that giving the warnings might adversely affect the rapport.’ ”

The editorial continues,

“We also know from then FBI Director James Comey that this was his idea. This is ‘something I probably wouldn’t have done or wouldn’t have gotten away with in a more organized administration,’ Mr. Comey boasted on MSNBC this weekend. ‘In the George W. Bush Administration or the Obama Administration, if the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House counsel, there would be discussions and approvals and who would be there. And I thought, it’s early enough let’s just send a couple guys over.’ ”

The Journal continues,

“If the goal was to set a legal trap, it worked. The two agents showed up at the White House within hours of Mr. McCabe’s call, and they reported in the 302 that General Flynn had been ‘relaxed and jocular’ and ‘clearly saw the FBI agents as allies.’ ”

The editorial concludes, that “the facts suggest” that Judge Emmet Sullivan “should question the entire plea deal.” McCabe and Strzok

“have both been fired for misconduct, and their behavior reeks of entrapment.... If he does nothing else, President Trump has an obligation to former aides like Michael Flynn and to the public to declassify and disclose the FBI documents related to the FBI’s Russia probe.”
