President Trump often suggests his predecessor has a connection to the Russia probe. His repeated accusations include illegal wiretapping and surveillance and have been largely dismissed by the liberal media. However, a new report appears to confirm that Obama is behind the sinister plot.
If you’ve never heard of the “Logan Act,” it’s no surprise. The act prohibits private citizens from contacting foreign governments on behalf of the U.S. The law is over 200 years old and the government has never prosecuted anyone for violations. That is, until the deliberate attack on Michael Flynn.
During late December of 2016 and early January 2017, the Obama Justice Department became very interested in the Logan Act. That period, while taking place during the presidential transition, was not coincidental.
Several times throughout December, Flynn spoke with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Most, if not all of those conversations centered on sanctions imposed against Russia by the Obama administration. American intelligence agencies recorded those calls.
If you recall, President Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates shortly after taking office. It just so happens that Yates, an Obama holdover, interviewed Flynn because of the Logan Act. She confirmed it in sworn testimony before Congress.
Moreover, Yates’ initial interview with Flynn led the FBI to the White House. The investigation eventually resulted in Flynn’s recent plea deal with special counsel, Robert Mueller. After news of Flynn’s guilty plea broke, ABC made the false claim that he would testify against Trump.
Proof Remains Elusive
What is perhaps most interesting about the entire charade is the fact it has produced no credible evidence against the Trump administration. Documents pertaining to Flynn’s deal substantiate, in no uncertain terms, that there was no collusion.
On the contrary, Obama officials use of the antiquated Logan Act seems to prove that this is indeed a political witch hunt. Combine that with newly revealed facts regarding the salacious Trump dossier and the picture is fairly clear.
President Trump recently condemned both the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Flynn case. “So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed. While Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday ‘interrogation’ with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her?” Trump tweeted.
“Rigged system, or just a double standard?”
