Rep. Adam Schiff weighed-in on the recently released Mueller report surrounding former Trump aide Michael Flynn Tuesday night; saying the heavily-redacted document “signals” he has “given far more than we or the President may know.”
“The recommendation of no jail time for Flynn, apart from its obvious irony for the man who led chants of “lock her up,” reflects both the timeliness and significance of his help. That most of the details are redacted signals he has given far more than we or the President may know,” posted Rep. Schiff on social media.

COMEY CONFUSION: Former FBI Boss Told Congress FLYNN DIDN’T LIE to Bureau
While Robert Mueller’s never-ending Trump investigation continues to spiral out of control, recent information is shedding new light on former advisor Michael Flynn’s testimony; with inside sources saying James Comey told Congressional leaders the bureau didn’t believe Flynn intentionally lied.
According to the Washington Examiner, “two sources” with inside knowledge of both Flynn’s conversations with the FBI as well as Comey’s testimony to Congress claim the former FBI chief told investigators that the bureau “did not believe” Flynn had either lied or was intentionally lying while speaking with agents.
“According to two sources familiar with the meetings, Comey told lawmakers that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe that Flynn had lied to them, or that any inaccuracies in his answers were intentional. As a result, some of those in attendance came away with the impression that Flynn would not be charged with a crime pertaining to the Jan. 24 interview,” writes the Examiner.
Despite Comey’s assertions, Robert Mueller charged Flynn approximately nine months later with intentionally making false statements to the FBI during his January 24th questioning.
The revelation raises serious questions over why Flynn was charged, and whether Robert Mueller’s ongoing witch hunt is desperately searching for inroads into President Trump’s inner-circle.

HANNITY ON FLYNN REPORT: The Former Trump Aide’s ‘Life in Limbo’ for THIS?
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on Robert Mueller’s recently released report regarding Michael Flynn; saying the special counsel held the former Trump aide’s life “in limbo” for an entire year for no apparent reason.
“If you believe in this constitutional republic, equal justice under the law, application of our laws, you ought to be very concerned tonight and outraged,” said Hannity.
“General Flynn’s entire life has been put in limbo for an entire year for this? They even used the Logan Act… He’s lost his house because he couldn’t afford the attorneys. His life’s work of 33 years of service washed down the drain for this? Reputation destroyed for this?” he asked.
“This is the thanks this country gives him? This is how we treat people? What kind of justice system is this?” said Hannity.
