The January 5th 2017 Oval Office meeting was illegal, illicit and a conspiracy to overthrow the election of Donald Trump.
Congressman Biggs said: “This really was a conspiracy to do something that we’ve not seen in American history, and that was to actually perform a coup,” he added. “That’s really what this was. I mean, you can’t get to it any more succinctly than that.”
“This was an attempt to undermine the election of the people. That’s a coup. And they were abusing their power, abusing the process, and they were — yeah, they were using the media.”
These comments comments come on the heels of the Department of Justice filing a motion last week to dismiss its criminal case against former White House national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn following explosive new evidence in the case.
Newly unsealed documents in Flynn’s case revealed FBI agents discussed the Army lieutenant general’s possible prosecution prior to interviewing him, leading Flynn’s lawyers to claim he was set up.
In the newly released documents, we learned that the FBI had drawn up paperwork to close the case against Flynn, but fired agent Peter Strzok made a last-minute move to keep it open.
Strzok was fired for sending countless anti-Trump text messages to Lisa Page, a former FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair. Strzok played a critical role in going after Flynn, the new documents reveal.
Handwritten notes from the FBI — which were withheld from Flynn’s defense team for years — show that a key goal of the agents investigating Flynn was “to get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”
House Intelligence Committee ranking Republican Rep. Devin Nunes also revealed over the weekend that the FBI’s original interview summary with Flynn is “missing.”
One could certainly make the argument that top brass at the FBI — such as Strzok and Page — may have deleted or altered Flynn’s original interview summary to make it better fit their goal, which was to charge him.
