Federal Prosecutors Stealthily Dismiss Probe into Unmasking, Leaking of Flynn Transcripts

January 2017 leak was part of broader effort to de-legitimize incoming Trump administration with bogus claims of Russia collusion that spawned two-year Mueller probe...

Federal prosecutors officials this week quietly closed an investigation into the conspiracy to destroy former President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, the Gateway Pundit reported.

They found no wrongdoing by the Obama administration in an anonymous January 2017 leak to the Washington Post of transcripts between Flynn and a Russian diplomat as the incoming national security chief sought to ease international tensions following a spate of Obama-imposed sanctions.

“Prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington investigated whether the disclosures came from former Obama administration officials who had access to sensitive information about the phone calls, according to two people familiar with the investigation,” according to dispatches from the New York Times.

“The investigators ultimately found no wrongdoing, one of the people said.”

The subdued manner in which the probe ended with no consequences appeared to stand in stark contrast with the media feeding frenzy that accompanied Post reporter David Ignatious’s scoop of potentially classified information.

The report, which came concurrent with the leak of the now-debunked Steele Dossier helped fuel the opposition’s push to delegitimize Trump’s administration. It set in motion a chain of events through which Flynn was fired and later indicted.

The partisan conspiracy also aided to Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, which eventually triggered the two-year Russia collusion investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Along the way, corrupt FBI agents, including the disgraced Peter Strzok, set up a perjury trap for Flynn, claiming that he had lied about the substance of the diplomatic calls.

Although Flynn pleaded guilty as part of the Mueller dragnet, he was pardoned by Trump last year.

Subsequent declassified information revealed that Comey, Strzok and others at the FBI had discussed in advance their intentions of setting up Flynn by misleading him as to the nature of the cordial interview.

Biden—who was vice president at the time—also reportedly played a role in the treasonous attempt to undermine the incoming Republican administration and smear Flynn.

He was one of more than a dozen Obama officials who questionably submitted requests to “unmask” the conversations between Flynn and Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak.

Although Comey conceded that there was nothing improper about the calls, Biden suggested during a January 2017 meeting in the Oval Office that FBI agents attempt to use the antiquated Logan Act of 1799 against Flynn.

The act, which bars civilians from conducting state business, has never been successfully prosecuted.
