FBI notes confirm coup against President Trump (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 542.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the FBI handwritten notes that prove without a shadow of a doubt that the FBI was hell bent on removing Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser, in a brazen action to debilitate and eventually topple US President Trump.

President Trump said Thursday that he would consider bringing former national security adviser Michael Flynn back into the administration in a different role.

“I think he’s a fine man. I think it’s terrible what [the FBI] did to him,” Trump responded when asked by a reporter if he would consider bringing Flynn back. “I would certainly consider it.”

Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI in the course of the Russia investigation but documents released late Wednesday in his criminal case have fueled conservative claims that he was entrapped by the bureau.

Trump has expressed support for Flynn while seizing on the new revelations, claiming the FBI tried to “destroy” Flynn. He did not rule out pardoning his former adviser.

“They did everything possible to destroy him but he’s still breathing very strongly,” Trump told reporters Thursday following an event on protecting seniors from the novel coronavirus.

Trump said he expected Flynn to be exonerated and would therefore be “capable” of returning to the administration, but said he hadn’t thought about in what capacity.

The documents released Wednesday show FBI agents discussing how to handle a January 2017 interview with Flynn, who was still working as Trump’s national security adviser at the time.

“What’s our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” an unnamed FBI agent wrote in a handwritten note included among the documents. “If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ & have them decide. Or, if he initially lies, then we present him [redacted] & he admits it, document for DOJ, & let them decide how to address it.”

“If we’re seen as playing games, WH will be furious,” the note reads. “Protect our institution by not playing games.”

Flynn’s attorneys say that the documents support their claims that their client was subject to prosecutorial misconduct. Legal experts, however, have doubted the significance of the documents, saying that such discussion about approaching a subject, target or witness of an investigation would be routine.

Flynn, who was ousted from the White House after misleading Vice President Pence and others about his contacts with the Russian ambassador, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian diplomat in December 2017.

Early this year he sought to withdraw that plea and it has delayed his sentencing. The federal judge overseeing Flynn’s case will ultimately make a decision as to whether the documents advance his claim that he was the victim of government misconduct.

To say how appalled I am about how badly America, its elites, its MSM and large rotating segments of its general population have “lost their sh*t” especially in the last four years is just leaving me speechless. Mercouris mentions a German TV series but I state that there was an American TV series that very accurately portrays America’s descent into madness. It was “Breaking Bad”. The incremental self destruction caused by the “it seemed like a good idea at the time”, the “I can get away with this” to the “I’m so powerful so, what are you going to do… Read more »

The ‘Elephant In The Room’…… Whenever I see an article such as this and absorb it’s evidence, the conclusion is always the same – if a group of individuals is capable of doing this, they are capable of almost anything. The MMS and those in general on the political left like to throw around phrases like ‘Covidiots’ and ‘conspiracy loon’, but the fundamental takeaway is that these incidents teach us an enormous amount about the current ‘COVID-19’ situation (note even my scepticism over its correct designation). The Deep State desire above anything the subjugation of the population; free thinking and… Read more »

What Alexander Mercouris and Alex Christoforou seem to have suddenly realized in this attempted coup against Trump is what anyone familiar with Clauswitz’s famous dictum ‘War is Politics by other means, Politics is War by other means’ has recognized long ago: ALL political rule is warfare of two kinds: The war waged against competitive nation states. If you like the ‘external war’. The war fought to be the monopoly political power in the world. And second, the war waged against competitors for control of the political apparatus. The ‘internal’ war. The war fought to be the monoply power in possession… Read more »

Warfare is analogous to the relationship between chemistry and physics….

Chemistry is concerned with the micro and physics the macro.

As you say politics is warfare on 2 fronts… the internal and the external.
