Mueller releases Flynn files showing FBI doubts over ‘lying,’ tensions over interview
FOX NEWS ^ | 14 DEC 2018 | Alex Pappas | Fox News

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Friday released key documents relating to the FBI’s questioning of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, confirming agents did not believe at the time Flynn intentionally lied to them -- though he was later charged with making false statements in that interview.

The documents also reveal that the decision to interview Flynn in early 2017 about contacts with the Russian ambassador was controversial within the Justice Department. One FBI document said then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates “was not happy” when then-FBI Director James Comey informed her that the FBI planned to talk to Flynn. The report also said several unnamed people back at FBI headquarters “later argued about the FBI’s decision to interview Flynn.”

We have a two tiered justice system as I write this. It is on full display, and the so called "Political Elite" want you to know it. They are in our face with it. I am concerned that if we don't re-establish equal justice under the law we are going to return to a state in our polity that resembles the early 70's. There must be accountability for the weaponization of our FBI, Justice Department, State Department and Intel Agencies. James Comey's comments that he would not have attempted to get a FBI agents into the White House with another administration prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was a political actor, acting politically. PFE Pure F....'n Evil. Oh and by the way there were terrorist attacks being plotted in the U.S. while the head of the FBI Anti Terrorism Branch was focused on internal U.S. Politics.

I have brought this up before, but it seems the only peaceful way forward would be for a Couple of LoudMouth Radio Hosts to start Preaching JURY NULLIFICATION for ALL Federal Trials to the Public At Large, JUST SAY NO!!!

This will get IMMEDIATE results, Guaranteed.

Dirty Cops.

Dirty Feds.

Time for some civil rights actions against them.

Which would be thrown out by Dirty Judges.

Time to sack DC.

She wasn’t happy because she thought it was tipping Trump off? Why was she not happy?

I keep thinking Flynn ought to have refused all questions from FBI, except as directed by the president. He should have said, I am the president’s advisor and spokesman. What I say is for his ears, or on his behalf. If you want to know what I told ambassador XYZ, you’ll have to ask the president. This is “need to know”, and you don’t need to know.

Just think about all that they have done to the President and those around him, and they do it in plain view of anyone paying attention. Now, think just what they could do to any of us who are total unknowns if they had a mind to. It’s scary for sure.

My guess is there are more than one whistle blower at the FBI thinking about testifying against Mueller.

They were fishing for something. Didn’t find it at the time so the moved on, but then came back afterward when they realized they could nail Flynn. Remember “Andy” saying “First we F Flynn then we F Trump”? That’s this.

It’s like “Magnum Force” with Clint Eastwood at the Federal level, Trump being inspector Calahan.

Special Counsel Responds to Request for FBI Notes Fails to Submit Agent's January Interview Notes
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3712952/posts

Just because a Federal judge told Political Bob to deliver the FD-302 from the Fibbie agent at the secret interview, doesn't mean that Mulehead has to.

Surprised that Bobby didn't spit in the judge's face and flip him off.

Let’s also consider that Flynn was a moron here. The interview was held on January 24th of 2017 — just days after the New York Times had posted a front-page article with a giant headline about the FBI wiretapping the Trump campaign. Who did Flynn think was under surveillance — Barron Trump?

And why is William Priestap missing from the myriad cast of characters we’ve become acquainted with over the last 18 months? He was the assistant director of the FBI counterintelligence division and involved in this up to his eyeballs, yet his name never surfaces. I sure hope there is somebody in leadership there with a conscience, so maybe he’ll be it.
