Former Vice President and now 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed months ago that he knew “nothing” about moves to investigate former Trump National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Michael Flynn, but newly-released documents proved otherwise.
Biden, appearing in May on ABC News’ This Week, was asked by news anchor and host George Stephanopoulos what he knew about moves to investigate Flynn while he was vice president.
Biden first responded, “I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn.”
When confronted by Stephanopoulos that he attended a now-famous January 2017 Oval Office meeting with then-President Obama and other top officials where they discussed Flynn, Biden claimed he understood the question to be whether he had anything to do with Flynn’s prosecution.
Then he said, “I was aware that they had asked for an investigation,” without specifying who “they” were.
“But that’s all I know about it. I don’t think anyone else — look, think about this,” he said, changing the subject to coronavirus. “This is all about diverting attention.”
However, newly-released handwritten notes from former FBI agent Peter Strzok show that not only was Biden aware of President Obama’s order to investigate Flynn, but he had suggested that Flynn had violated the 1799 Logan Act for speaking to then-Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak as incoming national security adviser.
Those phone calls — just some of hundreds Flynn had with foreign leaders during the transition period after the election — were used as the basis for the Obama administration to continue investigating Flynn and to interview him and get him to admit to violating the Logan Act or to get him to lie and be prosecuted.
Previously released documents showed that the FBI had moved to end its investigation on whether Flynn was a Russian agent until Strzok intervened, based on the calls with Kislyak. That happened right around the time of the Obama Oval Office meeting.
Strzok’s notes were released Wednesday, after an outside prosecutor appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr to look into the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Flynn, U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen, found the notes and handed them over to the DOJ.
Flynn’s defense team, led by lawyer Sidney Powell, then filed a motion for the release of the notes.
The notes also show that Obama had directed the FBI to have the “right people” look into Flynn. They also show that then-FBI Director James Comey said Flynn’s phone calls with then-Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak were “legit.”
The FBI is running cover for ANTIFA terrorists.
By Shane Trejo – 6/3/2020
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is claiming that there is “no intelligence” indicating that ANTIFA had a role in fomenting riots that have gripped the country.
This directly contradicts President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr, who immediately assigned the blame toward ANTIFA for the violence that is happening nationwide.
“The violence instigated and carried out by ANTIFA and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” Barr said.
Meanwhile, Trump took to Twitter to announce that “the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”
The FBI’s Washington D.C. field office reportedly claims that they have “no intelligence indicating ANTIFA involvement/presence” in the riots. They also claim that “CHS [Confidential Human Source] canvassing, open source/social media partner engagement, and liaison” absolve ANTIFA from any blame.
However, the FBI is assigning blame to right-wingers for mean words allegedly made in social media groups. They claim individuals on social media “called for far-right provocateurs to attack federal agents” and “use automatic weapons against protesters.” The DHS also claims that far-right social media posts “incited followers to engage in violence and start the ‘boogaloo’ — a term used by some violent extremists to refer to the start of a second Civil War — by shooting in a crowd.”
Big Tech is working with the deep state to cover for ANTIFA terrorists and spread the conspiracy theory that white nationalists are somehow responsible for the violence:
Social media giant Twitter has resorted to blaming a white nationalist group that no longer exists for fomenting riots that have resulted in death and destruction throughout the country.
One Twitter account, @ANTIFA_US, was lampooning the anti-American terrorist group with various posts mocking their extremist stances. They had written that the terrorist group was planning to “move into the residential areas” and “take what’s ours.”
Twitter, which has been known to harbor hate speech from ANTIFA domestic terrorists for many years, is blaming the defunct Identity Evropa (IE) group for the parody account that has since been removed from the platform. IE was officially disbanded in March 2019…
The American Identity Movement (AIM), a group that was founded to disavow the controversial history of IE, released a statement to address the phony reports running cover for ANTIFA terrorists.
“The unsubstantiated assertion was made without citing any alleged evidence upon which Twitter based such a dubious and inflammatory statement. No effort was made by Twitter to verify its contentions. The issuance of such an unlikely claim without any effort to verify it would be the height of irresponsibility even in normal times,” AIM wrote.
“There appears to be an organized effort by partisan politicians, advocacy journalists, and left-wing activists to shield the rioters who have shaken the nation from coast to coast in recent days by pushing a kooky conspiracy theory that “white supremacists” have infiltrated the rioters and are the “real” source of the arsons and attacks on policemen,” they continued.
“Neither Identity Evropa nor American Identity Movement have advocated, incited, or participated in violence or the fabrication of Antifa Twitter accounts. In addition to moral objections to such behavior, there would be no point in concocting such tweets when social media is replete with Antifa approval, incitement to and participation in such actions,” AIM added.
The sorcerers in Big Tech, the fake news media, and the Democrat Party are trying to invert reality with devious propaganda so the Soros-funded ANTIFA collective can avoid consequences for their many terror campaigns.
Twitter on Tuesday began “fact-checking” President Trump’s tweets but let elected representatives of the U.S. Congress claim that the president’s campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 elections for three years.
Jack Dorsey, the founder and CEO of Twitter, said Wednesday evening that the company’s intention is to “connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves.”
However, for three years — throughout 2017, 2018, and 2019 — Democrat members of Congress stated as fact on Twitter that they had evidence that Trump colluded with Russia, which fueled the leftist narrative that the election was illegitimate.
Their claims were “in dispute” by other members of Congress, as well as members of the Trump administration and the president, but Twitter never flagged them as such, as it did with Trump’s recent tweets.
On April 21, 2019, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) tweeted that special counsel Robert Mueller “did find evidence of collusion.”
In fact, Mueller’s report — released three days before — said that since collusion was not a legal term, his team looked for any conspiracy or coordination with Russia and did not find any.
It said, “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
However, there was no Twitter “fact check” for Schiff.
Similarly, almost a month after Mueller released his report, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) tweeted there was “some collusion.” He previously tweeted that he used the word “collusion” as “shorthand for conspiracy” — which Mueller explicitly did not find.
Lieu was not “fact-checked,” although Mueller’s report disputed his tweet.
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) on January 17, 2019, claimed that a BuzzFeed report was “MORE evidence of collusion.” No “fact-check” from Twitter. His tweet was retweeted more than 3,000 times and liked more than 12,500 times.
He also claimed seven days earlier, “I saw collusion from the very beginning.”
In 2018, Schiff claimed that there was “evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia” in “plain sight.”
Swalwell claimed that the House Intelligence Committee had “unearthed evidence of collusion.” His tweet has not been “fact-checked” even though the committee recently released more than 50 interview transcripts with former Obama and Trump campaign officials who presented no evidence of collusion.
On March 17, 2018, Schiff stated as fact, “We did find evidence of collusion.”
On February 28, 2018, Lieu stated, “Issue is not whether there was collusion. Issue is how high up the campaign did the collusion go.”
Lieu on January 10, 2018, tweeted, “The evidence shows not just collusion, but also Obstruction of Justice” by Trump “on multiple occasions.”

The Intel Community is reportedly no longer delivering the threats briefings.
It appears Director Chris Wray’s FBI cannot be trusted.
Jack Posobiec reported overnight that the Acting Director of National Intelligence, Ric Grenell, is no longer allowing the FBI to deliver the threats briefings.
Obviously the FBI is in serious trouble.
FBI Director Christopher Wray is a corrupt and a worthless leader of the world’s most powerful law enforcement agency.
Judge Jeanine also said as much just last night adding that Wray is part of the deep state.
After years of corruption, Wray and his FBI can no longer be trusted to do what is right and just.
This post was updated to clarify the FBI will no longer deliver the threats briefings.

A Department of Homeland Security memo sent to law enforcement officials around the country warns that violent extremists could seek to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic by carrying out attacks against the U.S.
“Violent extremists probably are seeking to exploit public fears associated with the spread of COVID-19 to incite violence, intimidate targets and promote their ideologies, and we assess these efforts will intensify in the coming months,” according to the intelligence bulletin, compiled by the agency’s Counterterrorism Mission Center and Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office.
At this time, DHS said it has “no information indicating any active plotting is underway,” but that it has observed certain extremist groups, both foreign and domestic, looking to spread misinformation about the coronavirus.
The memo, which was circulated on Monday, comes after assurances from FBI Director Chris Wray in a video message that agents would be even more vigilant in monitoring threats to the U.S. as the virus spreads.
“With all the worry and uncertainty out there, we want the public to know that there are still things they can count on: We’re here, and we’re going to stay here, to protect them, no matter what,” Wray said. “Because our criminal and national security adversaries sure aren’t going to take a day off — whether that’s for the coronavirus or, for that matter, anything else.”
Among the activities by extremist organizations cited in the DHS bulletin is a clipping from a weekly ISIS newsletter, which called for supporters to carry out attacks against overburdened health care systems in various Western countries.
Another portion of the bulletin singles out activity by white supremacists online who the DHS says have “advocated for violence against a range of targets, including critical infrastructure and faith-based and minority communities — including Asian Americans in response to the COVID outbreak.”
ABC News reported on Monday on an alert from the FBI’s New York field office that showed intelligence gathered on racist extremist groups, including neo-Nazis, that were encouraging followers who contract COVID-19 to spread the disease to Jewish people and police officers.

A new study released this week by the DOJ Inspector General found that the FBI dropped investigations on the Islamic terrorists behind several deadly terrorist attacks.
** Ft. Hood – Nidal Hasan
** Boston Marathon – Tamerlan Tsarnaev
** Garland, TX – Elton Simpson
** Orlando Pulse Nightclub – Omar Mateen
** NY Attacks – Ahmad Rahami
** Ft. Lauderdale Airport – Esteban Santiago
Pulse Nightclub terrorists Omar Mateen murdered 49 gays on a dance floor before shooting himself.
The Boston Marathon bombers killed three and injured 264 people.
And then it took the FBI days to figure out the identity of the killers.
The FBI was looking at these individuals but dropped the investigations before these Islamists went on their deadly killing sprees.
This is really bad news for America’s premier law enforcement agency.
The full report is here.
Of course, the FBI had plenty of resources available to spy on Donald Trump and his family and to send 25 agents and a CNN camera crew to Florida to arrest Roger Stone and his wife at 6 AM in the morning.
THE FBI IS PART OF THE DEEP STATE

President Donald Trump commuted former Illinois Governor Rod “Blago” Blagojevich’s sentence on Tuesday.
President Trump previously floated the idea of commuting Blago’s sentence, claiming the charges against him were “unfair.”
And on Tuesday Trump commuted the former Democrat governor’s sentence.
In his first interview at the Denver Airport Rod Blagojevich thanked President Trump and noted how Democrats “don’t treat him very good.”
Former Governor Rod Blagojevich: The appropriate thing to say is I speak for Patty, for my daughters Amy and Annie and me when I express our most profound and everlasting gratitude to President Trump for doing what he did. He didn’t have to do it. This is a Republican president. I was a Democratic governor. And my fellow Democrats don’t treat him very good. So all I can say is I think this is the ending of the first act of a two act play. And tomorrow begins the second act and I think there’s a lot that has to be done in the second act.
Blagojevich then told CBS Local he wants a banana split.
There’s much more to this story that may be revealed in the coming days.
And Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch posted this interesting report on Twitter after Blago’s release.
Over 11 years ago, the FBI interviewed Barack Obama about the sale of his Senate seat in Illinois. There is an FBI “302” report of interview. But rather than releasing document, the DOJ has fought Judicial Watch tooth and nail to keep the document secret!
Michael Kortan was the FBI’s press officer during the 2016 election.
New reporting from the Daily Caller has revealed that the FBI’s former chief press officer was forced to resign last year, after lying to the Department of Justice’s inspector general about accepting baseball tickets from a CNN reporter.
Michael Kortan was formerly the FBI’s assistant director of public affairs. He resigned from the agency in 2018, while under investigation from the Office of the Inspector General. The DOJ’s watchdog entity had discovered text messages in which Kortan agreed to accept baseball tickets to two Washington Nationals games during May and September 2016 from a CNN reporter. A report from the Office of the Inspector General describes Kortan as displaying a “lack of candor” during two interviews he was subjected to on the matter, suggesting that Kortan lied about accepting the gifts from a forbidden source.
Kortan also accepted baseball tickets from a New York Times reporter in 2014 and 2016. The anonymous CNN reporter who evidently provided gifts to the bureaucrat was apparently considered one of his top press contacts, suggesting that he or she may have been privy to confidential agency information that should have been kept private.
“Nats v Marlins Friday night. I have to be away. Can you use four tix?” Said one text from the CNN operative.
Kortan seemed relatively shameless in his response, accepting a gift that most professionals committed to ethics would quickly decline.
“I’m good for 2 tix if that’s OK.”
The Department of Justice ultimately didn’t prosecute Kortan for the breach of FBI rules, possibly because of his decision to resign from the agency.
FBI agents are strictly prohibited from receiving gifts from “prohibited sources,” who include journalists who cover the agency’s operations. It goes without saying that a high-ranking public affairs agent is totally forbidden from taking baseball tickets from CNN and New York Times reporters.
The FBI has struggled to retain its image as a neutral and non-partisan law enforcement agency, following years of scandals in which agency personnel were busted trying to interfere in partisan politics and national elections.
