“Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI. Nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and they destroyed his life.” – President Donald Trump, Dec. 4, 2017
Last Friday, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in federal court to making false statements to the FBI during the course of an investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 general election.
On Monday, President Donald Trump called the case against Flynn “very unfair” considering that former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lied to the FBI on numerous occasions in relation to the same investigation, yet is not facing charges.
As I pointed out many times in this space during the presidency of Barack Obama, the president, Clinton and other Cabinet members committed a plethora of high crimes and misdemeanors from 2009 to 2016, and I believe that any truly objective special counsel could have had the lot of them in orange jumpsuits by lunchtime.
It should also be noted that Flynn’s offense constituted a process crime, one that is committed during the course of an investigation into another alleged crime. Neither his actions nor his plea revealed any criminality on the part of the Trump 2016 campaign.
In considering all this, one needs to ask oneself how honestly they might respond to an FBI interrogation if they knew that those conducting same were acting unlawfully.
Last week, I cited the downside of prosecutorial discretion in that this can be used unethically, or to advance a political agenda. Capitol Hill lawmakers and the establishment press chose to conspicuously ignore each and every instance of misfeasance and criminality on the part of the previous administration, yet they appear to be wholly dedicated to toppling Trump.
Thus, it is not surprising that the frenzy of legal activity attendant to the Russia probe is yielding only paltry results, despite leftists at large approaching a state similar to sexual arousal upon receiving news such as that of Flynn’s plea.
It is now apparent that appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller to pursue the “Russian collusion” issue was the political equivalent of hiring Daffy Duck to do one’s taxes; the cartoon waterfowl was notoriously avaricious and probably clinically insane and could almost certainly be counted on to cheat.

One of the big stories this week was, of course, the dismissal of FBI investigator Peter Strzok from the Russia investigation by Mueller after it was revealed that Strzok exchanged text messages mocking President Trump and engaged in manifestly unethical practices during the investigation – texts that evidenced strong pro-Clinton and anti-Trump biases. Mueller’s action was accurately called a “Deep State Pawn Sacrifice” by Breitbart News, sort of like when President Obama fired his Green Jobs Czar Van Jones in 2010 for being a little too forthcoming in public with the Obama administration’s communistic agenda – and for calling Republicans “a–holes” on camera.
Strzok’s “sacrifice” was merely a public relations face-saving ploy, an effort to salvage the legitimacy of the investigation and the public perception of objectivity therein.
