What happened to Michael Flynn during the FBI and DOJ witch hunt of the Trump campaign team? Did he really lie to the FBI? Was he a foreign agent infiltrating Trump’s campaign? Or was he just set up by corrupt, pro-Obama government agents?
My opinion on the “what happened to Michael Flynn?” question is that he was set up by the corrupt and evil FBI. He didn’t do anything wrong; I don’t think there’s any real evidence that he intentionally lied or has ever been anything but loyal to the United States. That’s why he’s a hero of pro-Trump conservatives and an enemy of hateful leftists.
But I (and many of my Twitter followers) aren’t the only ones who know that fact about what happened to Michael Flynn. Roger Kimball, a writer for The Spectator, recently wrote an article entitled “The Shameful Smearing of Michael Flynn” and it does an excellent job of summing up just how awful the FBI was and is. It acts like it is above the law and works against American interests, which is why it is fair to say that Michael Flynn was the victim of sorry politics.
Summary of What Happened to Michael Flynn
First, Kimball does a terrific job of reminding the reader of who Michael Flynn is, what happened to him, and how the FBI acted corruptly:
Among other things, the case of Gen. Michael Flynn reminds us of the old adage that things are always worse than you think.
Right from the beginning of the attempted coup some of us took to calling ‘the Russian Collusion Delusion’, it was clear that the hounding of President Trump and various aides and supporters was shaping up to be the greatest scandal in American political history. In September 2018, I wrote here that it had become ‘abundantly clear that [both Flynn and George Papadopoulos] both were set up by the FBI as part of a deliberate attempt to delegitimize Trump’s presidency’.
I didn’t know the half of it. Yes, we knew that Flynn had been bankrupted and pressured to plead guilty to a bogus charge of lying to the FBI. It had been widely rumored that he did so because the FBI had threatened his son, also called Michael Flynn, with another bogus charge.
