The Flynn Unmasking: Comey, Brennan, and Good Ol’ Joe Biden
Earlier this week, we learned that Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell had ordered the declassification of the people who unmasked the identity of Michael Flynn in the weeks leading up to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. These Obama officials pored through surveillance documents that had the names of unintentional subjects blacked out, as is consistent with both policy and the law. They uncovered Flynn’s name and sent it swinging through the Deep State in an obvious and dangerous effort to weaken Trump’s presidency before it ever started.
And now we know the names.
They include FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, DNI James Clapper, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and yes, the man now running for president under the Democratic Party banner, Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden’s name being among those who called for Flynn’s unmasking is particularly interesting given the candidate’s interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” one day earlier. There, he pretended to know absolutely “nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn” and insisted that the whole story was just a “diversion” to distract people from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As if any “diversion” could be sufficient to do that!
But now that Biden’s name has popped up, it seems that it was he who was trying to distract – distract from his role in violating an American citizen’s constitutional rights.
“Joe Biden’s limp claim that he doesn’t know anything about the railroading of Gen. Michael Flynn just got even more unbelievable. Biden is listed among the Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of Flynn,” said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. “We already knew Biden was briefed on the Flynn case before President Trump took office and now we know that he wanted Flynn unmasked. Americans have a right to know the depth of Biden’s involvement in the setup of Gen. Flynn to further the Russia collusion hoax.”
Sadly, it’s clear that this is going to be one of those stories that gets traction solely in conservative media circles, so it probably won’t have a lot of effect on Biden’s presidential aspirations. The liberal mainstream media is busy presenting this whole thing as a conservative scam, and they’re only barely restraining themselves from telling viewers that William Barr is a Trump acolyte turning the Department of Justice into the president’s personal stormtrooper force. We’re sure they will lose control of that restraint in the coming months.
Thankfully, we don’t depend on the media for justice, and if there are criminal charges that need to be filed against the Obama officials responsible for this travesty, they will be filed regardless of whether or not CNN approves.
