President Trump called-out CNN for their abusive coverage of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn; saying the news network “tormented” him after he was removed from his White House post.
“CNN tormented him… I really hope to see that CNN will -not even apologize- but just cover this fairly. He’s in the process of being exonerated. These were dirty cops at the FBI. They were dishonest people. General Flynn was treated like nobody in this country should be treated,” said the President.
“Look at what they did to the guy. He couldn’t have known too much what was happening. They tormented him. They destroyed him. But he’s going to come back bigger and better,” he added.

FLYNN LEGAL COUNSEL: ‘The Documents Prove the Egregious Extent’ to Which FBI ‘Violated His Constitutional Rights’
Explosive new documents reveal the stunning extent James Comey’s FBI went to catch former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn in a perjury trap; releasing a memo that clearly states the agency’s intent was to “prosecute” the General or “have him fired” from his role in the Trump administration.
“The revelations of corruption by the FBI to intentionally frame Gen Flynn for crimes the FBI manufactured piles on with each new production of documents. Unequivocally, the documents prove the egregious extent to which those involved violated the constitutional rights of the National Security Advisor of the United States of America and a military hero, who put his life on the line for over three decades to preserve those very rights for every American citizen,” reads a statement from Flynn’s legal counsel Sidney Powell.
The release goes on:
To be clear, we now know by the production of new text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok that there in fact exists an original 302 document created by SSA 1 from his own notes of the January 24, 2017 ambush interview of Gen Flynn. Further, we know in fact that SSA 1’s original 302 document went to Stzrok who rewrote it substantially, but tried not to “completely re-write it so as to save [redacted] voice” and then was shared by Stzrok with a “pissed off” Page who revised it substantively yet again, crafting the narrative to charge Gen Flynn with a crime he did not commit.
As repugnant as this conduct is on its face, the travel of this vital document establishes continuously – and until this day – the original FBI agents, the prosecutors, and FBI management’s determination to withhold exculpatory evidence required under Brady, among other violations of Gen Flynn’s civil rights. They withheld it not only to try to convict an innocent man, but to hide their own crimes.
Second, the production proves that unadulterated fabrications and outright lies by an FBI CHS (Stefan Halper) were used by the government to target and investigate Gen. Flynn in the Crossfire Hurricane scheme. When their game plan failed, the tactic shifted with the “7th Floor involved.”
Finally, email messages in this production bolster the now widely known egregious conduct of the FBI in their plot to get Gen. Flynn one way or the other with total disregard for fairness, justice, decency, and the law.

COLLUSION DELUSION: House Committee to Subpoena Kushner, Sessions, Flynn, Rosenstein, MORE
House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler unveiled his plan this week to issue dozens of subpoenas to those involved in Robert Mueller’s “No Collusion” final report; demanding Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn, and Jared Kushner testify before Congress.
“House Judiciary Committee Democrats announced Tuesday that they plan to authorize subpoenas later this week for a dozen individuals connected to President Trump as part of the panel’s escalating probe into obstruction of justice, public corruption and other alleged abuses by the president,” reports Fox News.
“The individuals subject to fresh subpoena are: Sessions; Rosenstein; Kushner; former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn; former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn; former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly; former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski; former White House aide Rob Porter; publisher of the National Enquirer David Pecker and chief content officer Dylan Howard; former Stormy Daniels lawyer Keith Davidson; and assistant attorney general for the criminal division Joseph Hunt,” adds Fox.
Republican Rep. Doug Collins slammed Nadler’s request, calling the move an attempt to “relitigate” the Mueller report.
“Today’s latest effort to relitigate the special counsel’s investigation remains unimpressive and unproductive. Mr. Mueller’s team issued more than 2,800 subpoenas before concluding that no Americans conspired with Russia. Even if Chairman Nadler still believes subpoenas are conversation starters, it’s hard to imagine this handful of subpoenas will do anything but reinforce the principal conclusions we’ve been able to read about for months,” Collins said in a statement.
“I remain open to reaching a reasonable accommodation and will not issue subpoenas if the information we are seeking is voluntarily provided,” Nadler said Tuesday. “We will get answers one way or the other.”
