Last week was an eventful one as the DOJ dropped their criminal case against Michael Flynn, and we learned that Barack Obama himself knew the details of Flynn’s wiretapped calls. As Andy McCarthy puts it, at this point, that Obama was involved in the Flynn case can be treated as an assumption rather than a theory.
In response to the news of Flynn’s effective exoneration, Obama pretended to have concern for the rule of law, telling us that it’s now “at risk.” That’s coming from the man who commuted the sentence of Puerto Rican terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, mind you.
While Obama is peddling the narrative that it was Flynn’s dropped case that was the injustice rather than the case itself, Biden seems to feel the need to distance himself from the whole ordeal.
According to the New York Post:
Joe Biden has denied allegations he was part of an anti-Trump operation to frame former national security adviser Michael Flynn, playing down his presence at a key Oval Office meeting with then-President Barack Obama and the nation’s FBI chief.
“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
“This is all about diversion,” he continued when asked about President Trump’s belief that the case against the former national security adviser was “the biggest political crime in US history.”
“This is the game this guy plays all the time,” Biden said. “The country is in crisis. We’re in an economic crisis, we’re in a health crisis. We’re in real trouble. He should stop trying to always divert attention from the real concerns of the American people.”
Biden did however acknowledge that he was briefed on the Flynn probe – but clarified that he played no role in it himself.
An obvious point: if the Flynn probe were no big deal, Biden would feel no need to distance himself from it.
Perhaps he had no role in it. His former boss can’t say the same.
