Exculpatory evidence about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s 2015 trip to Russia has been revealed by John Solomon of the Hill.
Contrary to the mainstream narrative that Flynn almost committed treason for attending a Russia Today (RT) dinner in December of 2015, the three-star general’s meeting in Moscow actually provided some “modest benefit to the U.S. intelligence community.”
It turns out that before Flynn’s Russia meeting, he alerted the his former employer, the DIA, of his planned visit to Moscow and attended a “defensive” briefing which prepared him to extract intelligence for U.S. agencies and warned him of possible Kremlin efforts to compromise him. Upon his return from Russia, Flynn briefed officials on what he had learned.
All of this exculpatory evidence was kept under wraps by U.S. intelligence agencies, despite Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) pleas to publicly release some of this information.
Would the central character in a Russian election hijack plot actually self-disclose his trip in advance? And then sit through a briefing on how to avoid being compromised by his foreign hosts? And then come back to America and be debriefed by U.S. intelligence officers about who and what he saw? And would a prosecutor recommend little or no prison time for a former general if that former military leader truly had compromised national security? Highly unlikely.
