Not only is it “remarkable” that nobody hit the alarm button while rogue FBI agents laid a trap for Michael Flynn, special prosecutor John Durham is “disturbed” that “no whistleblowers came forward.” None at all, ever. One thing stands out from that like a neon sign, RedState writes, “the only use members of the Deep State have for whistleblowing is when it can be used as a weapon against the right.”
Why no whistleblowers
Sources familiar with John Durham’s investigation told Fox News that when the U.S. Attorney reviewed recently unsealed documents indicating that retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn was entrapped into lying to the FBI, he was “disturbed that no whistleblowers came forward.”
It should have happened right away. Durham calls it “remarkable” that nobody felt uncomfortable enough to speak up “at the onset.” There isn’t a single shred of doubt that “more than a few officials” knew exactly what was going on, “including support staff.”
They knew it was wrong and they didn’t seem to mind. Recently discovered notes kept by FBI agent Bill Priestap “could be sufficient for some charges against agents.” They consider this a “serious case.” The FBI branch of the Hillary Clinton fan club cheered them on.
Everything they could to stop the disclosure
According to Joe diGenova, there are whistleblowers now. At least one mole inside the FBI “is leaking to the press about the current conduct of FBI Director Christopher Wray and his general counsel, Dana Boente.” The former U.S. Attorney calls it “fascinating” to learn that “Chris Wray and Dana Boente did everything they could to prevent the stuff from the Missouri U.S. attorney from being given to Flynn’s attorney.” He calls it “the beginning of a very ugly story.”
DiGenova compares it to the dark and tangled plot of a Russian novel, “It’s even better than Dostoyevsky.” James Baker seems to have “flipped.” FBI’s former General Counsel was obviously in Durham’s cross hairs from the beginning. “He was a target, is now understandably cooperating because he was looking at a boatload of criminal charges.”
The notes that made Baker break ranks with the Deep State were the same ones that “Chris Wray and Dana Boente did not want turned over to General Flynn,” the current whistleblowers indicate
Exoneration better than a pardon
Word around the water cooler is that the president is considering a pardon for Michael Flynn, his former security adviser. He already mentioned that he would be welcome working in the White House again. With what was just disclosed in recent days, a pardon likely won’t be needed. He’s about to be cleared of wrongdoing.
A pardon would be spun by the left to make it seem like the president was some sort of co-conspirator, while “exoneration by judicial process” is nothing to sneeze at. “It would have more value from a public policy standpoint if the courts do it. Obviously if that happens then the exoneration has credibility.”
The criminal investigation is expected to wrap up sometime during the summer, as soon as they are certain that they have enough solid evidence to bring charges. “If they don’t have it, they’re not going to bring it. But they think they’ve got it.”
