Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump looks like it hit a rough patch.
The special counsel spent months riding high with favorable headlines in the fake news media based on guilty pleas and indictments that have nothing to do with Russia collusion.
But now Robert Mueller is about to learn the one fact that will have him running for his life.
Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s guilty plea for lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador have been clouded in controversy for months.
Mueller forced a guilty plea from Flynn despite the fact that the FBI agents who interviewed him believed he was truthful.
Now that Flynn is about to be sentenced, Mueller’s shady conduct is about to catch up with him.
The judge on the case requested Mueller turn over all regarding the FBI’s Flynn interview so he could fairly judge the claims made by Flynn’s lawyers that he was treated unfairly by the Bureau.
And now many Americans – including prominent members of Congress – believe the judge may be about ready to toss Flynn’s guilty plea.
California Congressman Darrell Issa told Fox News he believes the FBI’s misconduct in the matter was so over the top that Flynn’s guilty plea may not hold up.
During Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) predicted the conviction of President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn, would be overturned because the FBI “tricked him into not having a lawyer, when, in fact, he was not only a suspect, but a target, and they had transcripts.”
“I would not be surprised a bit that the conviction of Flynn is overturned because of the Justice Department and the FBI’s misconduct, and that, in fact, we go potentially all the way to Supreme Court with new protections when the FBI and the Department of Justice lies to somebody and tricks them into making statements, and then charges them with a lie that they entrapped them in,” Issa said to host Maria Bartiromo.
He later added, “[F]or the first time ever, I believe, in the next Congress, the Senate might actually have to go to a federal judge and say, let’s talk about the lies you were told because we’re getting stonewalled by this Department of Justice.”
This would be a stunning defeat for Mueller.
And it would back up Donald Trump’s allegations that Mueller is bullying people into confessing crimes they didn’t commit in order to terrorize the President.
