Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after he pled guilty to tax evasion, making false statements on a bank loan application, lying to Congress about a building project that never even got off the ground and a questionable campaign finance violation.
Notice something missing? No Trump-Russia collusion. None. Again. It’s also important to note: Michael Cohen does not have a cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors.
Meanwhile, another top target of this Mueller witch hunt, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, is asking a federal judge for leniency and no jail time. He pleaded guilty to lying to investigators, but only after legal bills wrecked his family finances and forced this man, a 33-year veteran who spent five years in combat to have to sell his home. There was also probably a threat of punitive action against his son and his business partner. Flynn fell on his sword, like probably 99 percent of fathers would do.
However, we are learning some disgusting new details surrounding how Flynn was treated by top federal officials. According to Flynn sentencing requests, then-deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe pressured then-National Security Adviser Flynn not to have a lawyer present during a seemingly relaxed, casual meeting with the FBI – the one that they said he lied at. (Except nobody believed he lied.)
Flynn agreed to sit down without attorneys present, and was then subsequently charged with lying during that very meeting.
Now, keep in mind, Andrew McCabe was ultimately fired from the FBI for lying to the bureau, and he is currently facing no charges. According to FoxNews.com, Flynn’s filing also seemingly demonstrates that the FBI took a significantly more aggressive tack in handling the Flynn interview than it did during other similar matters. For example, according to FoxNews.com, “no one interviewed during the FBI’s Clinton email investigation was hit with false statement charges, though investigators believed those witnesses were untruthful, big difference.”
And so, as we now know, that is called a two-tiered justice system.
And this might be part of the worst part of Flynn’s political persecution: The agents interviewing him never thought he lied. That is a such a miscarriage of justice and an abuse of power corruption scandal, one of the biggest in American history.
Of course, you’re not likely to hear about any of this on any other media, especially over a “Conspiracy TV,” MSNBC. Especially not on the liberal “Morning Joe” show, where the hosts literally spend hours every single day trying to outdo themselves, trading insults about Donald Trump and the Trump family and anybody associated with Trump.
