Omar Claims Flynn Case was Dropped because of White Privilege : The Setup
Let’s not forget the circumstances around this. Flynn was set up, and his family was threatened, so he accepted a plea deal. Yes, General Flynn is a white man.
In a court filing, the department proclaimed it is dropping the case that led to Flynn’s 2017 guilty plea of lying to the FBI, “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”
It was concluded by the DOJ that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn.” The DOJ also put on record that and that the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”
President Obama was aware of the details of then-incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn’s intercepted December 2016 phone calls with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, apparently surprising then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, according to documents released Thursday as exhibits to the government’s motion to dismiss the Flynn case.
Obama’s unexpectedly intimate knowledge of the details of Flynn’s calls, which the FBI acknowledged at the time were not criminal or even improper, raised eyebrows because of his own history with Flynn — and because top FBI officials secretly discussed whether their goal was to “get [Flynn] fired” when they interviewed him in the White House on January 24, 2017.
The Jan. 5 meeting, just 15 days before Donald Trump took office, included Obama, Yates, then-FBI Director James Comey, former Vice President Joe Biden, then-CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, according to declassified documents cited by Fox News.
Regarding Omar’s statement. How soon we forget that former presidential candidate Kamala Harris, as a prosecutor in California, in fact put people on DEATH ROW, knowing they were innocent, and did nothing.
Tulsi Gabbard reminded people during a debate earlier this year:
“Kamala Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” Gabbard said, referring to Harris’ time as attorney general of California from 2011 to 2017.
Tulsi Gabbard, The congresswoman from Hawaii pointed out that Harris joked in a recent interview that she smoked weed in college, but the former attorney general also locked up over 1,000 people on marijuana citations.
“There are too many examples to cite, but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard said.
“She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” Gabbard added. “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California, and she fought to keep the cash bail system in place. That impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.
Omar Claims Flynn Case was Dropped because of White Privilege : Destroyed Financially
As for the white privilege. Here’s the thing…General Flynn is a patriot. He has worked all his life for his love of country, and to be accused of being a traitor, of being disloyal, must have been devastating.
This man has been literally put through the ringer. He owes millions in legal fees. Is that “white privilege”? What they did to General Flynn was nothing less than criminal, and the case very well should have been dropped.
And of course, there’s Hillary. So many crimes, and no time in jail, no charges nothing. There’s no doubt she had classified material on a personal server. There’s no doubt this happened. Seems as long as you’re a Democrat, you can literally get away with murder, but the moment a white Republican male gets proven innocent, somehow it’s an abomination.
Then of course, there’s Omar herself:
Unlike Kamala Harris and Obama, we believe in the constitution, we believe in human rights and we believe in doing the right thing. If that’s white privilege, they better check theirs.
