Obama took lead from beginning on Flynn frame-up

Newly released FBI notes from former FBI head James Comey now reveal that as of January 5, 2017 not only did Comey and Obama consider all of the phone calls by former national security advisor Mike Flynn to Russian officials to be entirely “legit”, Obama was involved and likely instigated from the beginning the framing of Flynn.

Comey’s notes describe the discussion at that January 3rd meeting, attended by Obama, Biden, Comey, then-deputy attorney general Sally Yates, and then-national security adviser Susan Rice, about Flynn and his calls. The notes describe this unfolding conversation:

Obama: “Make sure you look at things and have the right people on it.”

Obama again: “Is there anything I shouldn’t be telling transition team?”

Comey, in response: “Flynn[‘s calls to] Kislyak … appear legit.”

In other words, Obama instigated the frame-up, even though he and these other high government officials knew Flynn had done nothing wrong.

As noted at the link,

The [January 5th] meeting to strategize against the Trump administration included just a few key law enforcement principals. Their testimony about what transpired is sometimes in conflict. Yates claimed Comey brought up the Logan Act while Comey claims Biden cited it. Rice claimed Obama directed that the anti-Trump operation be run “by the book,” but Comey claimed Obama even directed which personnel to use.

All parties agree, however, on the main substance of the meeting, which was a discussion of how to target Flynn for his “legit” phone calls and withhold vital national security information from the newly elected presidential administration. [emphasis mine]

In other words, President Obama led an effort to frame an innocent man in order to lay the groundwork for overthrowing the legally elected Trump administration. Or to be blunt, Obama was leading a coup attempt, aided by major players in his administration, many of whom remained in place as enemy agents once Trump took over.

Such behavior is not merely illegal and despicable, it is outright treasonous.

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit. If you buy it from ebookit you don't support the big tech companies and the author gets a bigger cut much sooner.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs."--San Antonio Express-News

    Will “Barack the magic negro” get a pass? Just another exception to be made for a man of color? A disgrace, but all is fair in love and war, and this is war. But not when you get caught dead to rights conspiring to remove a duly elected president from office. That in my world is called Sedition, or is it Treason? Maybe both?


    “Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent towards, or resistance against established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interest of sedition.”

    Or would it be treason?

    Treason: ”

    In law, treason is criminal disloyalty, typically to the state. It is a crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s nation or sovereign. This usually includes things such as participating in a war against one’s native country, attempting to overthrow its government, spying on its military, its diplomats, or its secret services for a hostile and foreign power, or attempting to kill its head of state. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.”

    All is being revealed.

    Q: Can a president commit either treason or sedition while in office?

    Can a president just say that he had reasonable suspicions that the incoming president was controlled and obligated to the Russians and be believed?

    But what this looks like is a conspiracy between Obama, Comey, Rice and the rest to not reveal illegal activities by Trump but to set him and his people up to at the minimum disrupt their administration and ultimately to remove Trump from office. Which we all saw as the Congress and the FBI attempted to drive home the plan.

    That is what it looks like to me.

    It was Jan 3, 2017. Not nitpicking, know you like accuracy.

  • Steven C: Thank you. Typo corrected.

    The meeting was actually held on January 5th 2017, not the 3rd. This difference is actually quite important as the case agents on Crossfire Razor, the investigation of Flynn, had moved to close it down the day before (the 4th) as they had uncovered “no derogatory information” against him. And it must have been kept open BECAUSE of this meeting as no other events have ever been reported that would have changed the case agent conclusions in the brief interlude between these events.

  • MDN: Darn it, another stupid mistake on my part. Thank you. Now fixed.

    Just to properly clarify.

    You see what is going on in America today as being caused by Trump because he is “destroying” the Constitution, and in your words, “Burning” it.

    And that is not at all what is underway. What you are witness to in America today is the Lefts reaction to Trump and his more Conservative and traditional mind set regarding his job as president and his respect for the Constitution and American interests and the rule of law. You must make the distinction.

    The interests that oppose Trump are Liberal Democrats at the minimum and as you can clearly see at the maximum they are literally Marxist and Socialist based in their belief system. In other words they are anti American and anti Capitalism, and that threatens everything worthwhile in your life. I do not think you support that.

    And you as an anti Trump Democrat are unfortunately in this classification of Americans at the moment.

    Simply, Trump represents the real existential threat and the dismantling of these politically active peoples Socialist agenda in America. And that makes them very desperate because the threat is real.

    So to be clear, Trump is not causing the chaos that is under way in America today due to his agenda like you choose to see him. Trump causes the extreme reactions and desperate counter measures that are being taken by the Liberal now Leftist dominated Democrat leadership and is pumped by their cohorts the Main Stream Liberal media. And everything that has gone on in the courts and instituted by the Democrats in the Congress that has been all discredited clearly demonstrates this.

    Mueller / Russia investigation, nothing, set up. Mike Flynn, FBI set up. Impeachment, fail. All political actions designed to injure or destroy a political opponent, politics in other words. Politics, the dirtiest filthiest game that humans play.

    I expect you to objectively be able to understand this, put your personal dislike for Trump the man aside and support Trump the president who in fact is working to preserve the Constitution as it was written and intended and the freedom that it represents not only for the people of America but for the people of the entire world.

    So, Trump is not the cause of the chaos in America today, Trump causes the extreme desperate reaction by those who his strong American perspective threatens. And if the others prevail, with your assistance, then you and they will be well on the road to literally “Burning” the Constitution and installing Socialism in America.

    And I know that is not what you intend. JGL
