FBI Goal Questioning Michael Flynn

What was the FBI’s goal when it questioned Michael Flynn? Was it to get the truth or to get him to lie? That’s what Counter Intelligence head Bill Priestap asked in a memo:

“What is our goal? Truth and admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” This may have expressed an honest question over the motivation behind this targeting of Flynn, a decision for which Comey later publicly took credit when he had told an audience that he decided he could “get away” with sending “a couple guys over” to the White House to set up Flynn and make the case.

Update: Justice Department drops the case against Flynn.

Folly of Adam Schiff’s Trump Impeachment Effort

Alaska became a U.S. possession thanks to Seward’s folly. Secretary of State William Seward bought Alaska from Russia for seven million dollars in 1867. And outraged House Republicans trashed the transaction, calling it “Seward’s folly.”

Then they impeached Seward’s boss, President Andrew Johnson. But the Senate acquitted Johnson by one vote.

Now Adam Schiff worries that President Trump will sell Alaska back to Putin. Not to mention turning the White House over to Jared Kushner and bugging out to Mar-a-Lago.

Ballot Box Can’t be Trusted, Says Adam Schiff

Adam Schiff made the case against democracy at the Senate impeachment trial last week.

The president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won,” he said

A rigged election? In that case we have to impeach Trump before he wins again.

Reminded me of the Vietnam quote, “It became necessary to destroy the village to save it.

House Speaker Pelosi dispatched a procession to the Senate to deliver a 1,426 word leather-bound document containing articles of impeachment. The Speaker and her acolytes hope to frogmarch President Trump out of the White House.

But, as The Washington Post reports:

For all the pageantry, both Johnson and Clinton’s impeachments ended in acquittal. Trump’s probably will too…

Due Process Parody

We’re told the House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearing isn’t a legal proceeding. But it’s a political one and the rules of due process don’t seem to apply.

Due Process

With that in mind, here are a few of Chairman Schiff’s rules for the hearing:

No Trump lawyers or White House counsel are permitted.

Trump may not confront his accuser (the whistleblower). And the whistle blower won’t testify. That’s because Schiff says his testimony would be redundant and unnecessary .

Unlike Trump, apparently Hunter Biden is above the law and any investigation of him would be considered a sham. So Hunter won’t be testifying either.

And, finally, outing the whistleblower is strictly forbidden and will be be considered an ethics violation.
