A possible defense of Michael Flynn

Like everyone else, I have puzzled over why General Michael Flynn apparently lied to the FBI when he had no reason to do so. We may never know the answer to that question, but here are a few possibly unrelated pieces of the puzzle:

1) Via InstaPundit, Michael Ledeen speculates about what drove Flynn’s guilty plea:

    When the FeeBees ‘interview’ a person, no recordings are allowed.

    The Agent then types up his/her/its formal report using the notes he/she/xi took during the ‘interview’ and his/her/its interpretation thereof and that becomes the only official record of the whole process.

    Do you now understand how the system works, hmm?

    Luckily, as a Federal Agency the FBI is totally uncorrupted, apolitical, honest, fair and balanced.

      And there you go. Never talk to the cops – especially without a lawyer present. Ask Martha Stewart – they got her on the same charges.

    • Sendarius says:

      This is just the first step.

      When the FBI agents return for the second interview, they repeat the process: no recording, agent takes notes, agent types “record of interview” from memory and notes.

      Any differences in “what you said” in the “records of interview” from interview 1 and interview 2 is proof that you lied.

      The ONLY way out of this trap is not to enter in the first place: refuse to respond unless in the presence of your attorney, and with recording devices running.

      up north the FBI loved to do interviews at dunkin donuts. because of all the recording devices.


      sure the article is from 1994. but do you really think they gave that up?

  2. I don’t know (does anyone other than Flynn?) what is the truth. But I do know that the story at the link is a reasonable, balanced and plausible explanation of the events.

    And I’m never going to read or hear anything like it from the Media.

    What part of “do not talk to the po-leases without counsel present” did he not understand?

    Don’t talk to the FBI or federal officers (or maybe any feds at all) without legal representation. Even then don’t talk likely. Maybe with the right kind of immunity that they can’t use under any circumstances. IN WRITING, of course signed notarized and a video of the signing. ( maybe a bit far, but you would be dealing with the FBI which has a horrible reputation of writing lies on their written documentation of an interview or a talk.)

    The use of dirty tricks by the FBI is now legion.

    Mueller isn’t a democrat. He’s a deep state republican being painted as a democrat operative to give cover to the republican establishment. The republican establishment are the ones that will be responsible if PDT is impeached and subsequently removed from office. The coups is a bipartisan affair designed to wrest the party back from and defeat the conservative grass roots once and for all. You will be made to comply…

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
