Exculpatory Russia evidence about Mike Flynn that US intel kept secret
By John Solomon, opinion contributor — 01/02/19 04:30 PM EST

Sometimes public silence can be deafening or, for that matter, misleading.

For nearly two years now, the intelligence community has kept secret evidence in the Russia collusion case that directly undercuts the portrayal of retired Army general and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn as a Russian stooge.

That silence was maintained even when former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates publicly claimed Flynn was possibly “compromised” by Moscow.

And when a Democratic senator, Al Franken of Minnesota, suggested the former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief posed a “danger to this republic.”

And even when some media outlets opined about whether Flynn’s contacts with Russia were treasonous.

Yes, the Pentagon did give a classified briefing to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) in May 2017, but then it declined the senator’s impassioned plea three months later to make some of that briefing information public.

Flynn was never charged with any wrongdoing related to the RT event, so the belated revelations about his pre- and post-event conduct won’t have any effect on his sentencing in the court of law.



This is a pointless article. Solomon says he wasn’t charged with anything related to the RT event, then lists things related to the event as exculpatory. The recommendation for no jail time was due to the relatively low sentence guidelines for things in his plea, along with cooperation he provided to the special counsel for over a year, when all is said and done. We have no idea what information he provided concerning activities by other campaign members.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Flynn was prosecuted for (and pled guilty to lying to investigators).  But, he was investigated for "Russian collusion", which, per John Solomon, didn't happen and the investigators knew it didn't happen.

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

No, he was under investigation for being compromised, which he was. Kislyak knew the substance of their conversations and knew Flynn was publicity and privately lying about it. Up until the point he was fired for lying, it was potential leverage against him.

Looks like you're addressing someone else's comment.  You didn't address anything I said.

^^^ Yeah, I did. Was the above posted by someone else? I’m not going to waste any more time on it, playing another game of idiot semantics with you, because you cannot follow your own comments.
