The centerpiece of Robert Mueller’s investigation surrounds former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Mueller is trying to build the case that Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in order to stop the investigation into Flynn.
But Trey Gowdy revealed a secret that brought the whole case tumbling down.
Last October, Mueller obtained a guilty plea against Flynn for lying to investigators in January 2017 about his conversations with the Russian Ambassador.
But the agents who interviewed Flynn at the time did not believe he was untruthful.
During his media tour, Comey claimed he never told Congress the FBI did not believe Flynn lied.
That statement was itself a lie.
Trey Gowdy revealed that there are transcripts of Comey’s testimony where he flatly states Flynn did not lie.
James Comey says he has seen reports like this — https://t.co/u3CMXFg6rj — and he never told Congress FBI agents didn't believe Flynn lied. Trey Gowdy told @TuckerCarlson that Comey did, in fact say that, and there's a transcript of Comey saying it. pic.twitter.com/UEBSVMEmza

If the FBI did not think Flynn lied, then Trump was not disrupting an investigation into him.
Flynn was in no legal danger.
There was nothing to obstruct.
The obstruction case has always been weak.
But thanks to Trey Gowdy it is now nonexistent.
