Sen. Dianne Feinstein raised eyebrows across the country during Congressional testimony Wednesday; bizarrely asserting that Michael Flynn “was granted favorable treatment” by the Department of Justice.
“[Michael Flynn] was not treated unfairly. In fact, it appears that he was granted favorable treatment by having the Justice Department seek to dismiss his case even after he admitted guilt and took responsibility for his actions,” said the Senator.
