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.”
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.”

DEEP STATE ERUPTS!
Judge Sullivan appoints Retired Judge to Fight Back Against Trump DOJ and Attorney General William Barr!
As we reported last night–
There are rumblings that former members of his FBI (e.g. FBI General Counsel James Baker) have flipped and are working with Durham.
Obama’s Deep State henchmen who set up General Flynn and the crooked politicians and media hacks who supported them are terrified.
More information on Obamagate is expected to drop in the coming days.
An audio of former President Barack Obama, whose Administration spied on the Trump team and Administration, was released by deep state reporter Michael Isikoff at Yahoo News on Friday night.
In the “call” which appears totally set up, Obama says he is concerned about “the rule of law.”
Obama also accused Flynn of committing “perjury”!
Apparently, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan took this call to heart.
On Tuesday the Clinton-appointed judge made a dirty, political move to delay justice for General Mike Flynn.
The Justice Department dropped its case against General Mike Flynn last Thursday after bombshell documents released proved he was framed by Comey’s FBI.
But Judge Sullivan extended the case by soliciting amicus briefs to allow for public comment on Flynn’s criminal case.
And now this…
Judge Sullivan today appointed retired Clinton appointee judge John Gleeson to argue against the government’s motion to dismiss the charge against Flynn!
This is unheard of!
On May 11, 2020, John Gleeson penned this Washington post article “The Flynn case isn’t over until the judge says it’s over“.
First the attorneys for the Mueller team withheld Brady evidence from General Flynn for over a year and now this crooked judge won’t acquit!
Also Sullivan asked the retired judge to look at whether Flynn could be held in criminal contempt for perjury.
**** This is exactly what Obama said — even though Flynn DID NOT commit perjury!
THE DEEP STATE IS FIGHTING BACK!
Via Kyle Cheney from far left Politico.
Here is Judge Sullivan with James Boasberg & Rosemary Collyer who both signed the FISA warrant. Judge Contreras Flynn’s first Judge had to be removed from the case because of his personal relationship with Strzok. And the corrupt Amy Berman Jackson.

Can we even count how many Americans the Democrats accused of being Russian agents?
THE FBI IS PART OF THE DEEP STATE
February 19, 2020
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!
Former President Barack Obama “personally asked” the FBI to investigate someone at the request of billionaire progressive George Soros, according to Harvard Law School professor emeritus, Alan Dershowitz.
“President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who was a close ally of his,” said Dershowitz.
“We’ve seen this kind of White House influence on the Justice Department virtually in every Justice Department,” he added. “The difference is this president is much more overt about it. He tweets about it. President Obama whispered to the Justice Department about it.”
Q: Wow, well, we look forward to hearing more about that new.
Dershowitz: That’s not unusual. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time. Presidents whisper to [the] Justice Department all the time. It’s very common. It’s wrong, whoever does it, but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think that it’s unique to any particular president. I have in my possession the actual 302 form [an FBI record of an interview], which documents this issue, and it will, at the right time, come out. But I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed. -Breitbart News
Dershowitz also opined on the impeachment trial of President Trump – of which he was part of Trump’s defense – reiterating that his arguments had been so distorted by CNN that he could sue the network if he wanted to.
CNN — and House impeachment managers — claimed Dershowitz said that the president can do whatever he wants to do, as long as he claims to have believed he was acting in the public interest. Dershowitz had specifically said that criminal-like behavior was indeed impeachable.
Dershowitz also said that former Trump associate Roger Stone deserved a new trial, given new revelations about the extreme political bias of the jury foreperson, who opposed both Trump and Stone. -Breitbart
Hear the entire interview below:
FEBRUARY 14, 2020
Tomeka Hart, foreperson of the Roger Stone trial jury, clearly lied during the jury selection process to obscure her own political activism and obvious bias in the Stone case.
Tomeka Hart, former congressional candidate and member of the Memphis school board, has recently worked for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. She tweeted anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton material while the Stone trial was in progress, and she also previously re-tweeted a hateful comment about Stone from CNN’s Bakari Sellers, which referred to Stone’s arrest. (READ: Court Transcripts Show Russian Set-Up Agent Who Met With Stone Was A Mueller FBI Informant).
Tomeka Hart lied to get selected to the Stone jury.
“So nothing that I can recall specifically. I do watch sometimes paying attention and sometimes in the background CNN. So I recall just hearing about him being part of the campaign and some belief and reporting around interaction with the Russian probe and interaction with him and people in the country, but I don’t have a whole lot of details. I don’t pay that close attention or watch C-Span,” said Tomeka Hart, identified by her life details matching a juror who was interviewed, according to a transcript of the jury selection process.
But Tomeka Hart does watch C-Span. She said so herself on Twitter.
Tomeka Hart, who has been photographed with former DNC acting chairwoman Donna Brazile, is a political activist.
The Wall Street Journal reported in 2012: “An Arkansas jury found Erickson Dimas-Martinez guilty of murder in March 2010. This past December, the conviction was thrown out. The reason: A juror had been tweeting during the trial. This case and others across the country show how the use of social media is disrupting the jury trial. While juror misbehavior is nothing new, social media have made it extremely easy—and tempting—to break the rules, and lawyers are increasingly using that as a reason for appeals, legal experts say.”
