The Flynn Affair is still roiling the right side of the news, but being largely ignored and buried on the wrong side. John Solomon at JTN clearly on the right side, Dirty Dozen: The 12 revelations that sunk Mueller's case against Flynn, while on the wrong side, NYT (via Hot Air) whines that Dropping Of Flynn Case Heightens Fears Of DOJ Politicization. Too late for that; Obama politicized DOJ beyond measure. WaPoo also whines Barr undercuts Mueller investigation as Trump cheers him on and proposes that the Mueller investigation ended too soon. Clearly; they didn't get their intended target. From atop Da Hill, Comey, McCabe slams Justice for dropping Flynn case: 'Pure politics designed to please' Trump. My irony meter is broken. Mike Walsh at NYPo, Why the dismissal of Michael Flynn’s case could win Trump reelection. From your keyboard to God's ears, I suppose.
From sundance at CTH, Matt Whitaker Discusses Why the FBI Targeted Lt. General Michael Flynn…
Jonathon Turley get into the issue with Did The Mueller Team Violate Brady and Flynn Orders? The short answer is yes.
I have been a long critic of the failure of federal judges to sanction prosecutors for misrepresentations and withholding of evidence. That could prove the case here but that will not alter the fact that this is in open defiance of these orders. I have been counsel in cases where clear violations occurred, including a well-known case in front of Judge Sullivan that led to years of hearings before a Special Master and federal magistrate. This material was clearly within the court orders to be produced.At Breitbart, Mark Levin Celebrates Vindication of ‘The Broadcast That Will Go Down in History’.

Richochet, Drudge Report Becomes Sludge Report"It felt like the right time to FRAME AN INCOMING ADMINISTRATION". I hope people hang...— Yeah Right (@YeahRyte) May 8, 2020
The Drudge Report has become part of the leftist media cabal slanting coverage to defeat President Trump. There were dramatic revelations in the plot to get Trump this week–virtually ignored by The Drudge Report.I had noticed. I've also started watching The Bongino Report, which seems to be attempting to fill the void.
DOJ dismissed the charges against General Mike Flynn because of clear, unequivocal evidence of the FBI’s plot to entrap him by circumventing normal White House clearance procedures just four days after the inauguration. In his own testimony, James Comey bragged about sandbagging Flynn.
Obama DOJ and Intelligence apparatchiks swore to under oath before Schiff’s secret basement hearings that they had no evidence of “Russia collusion” by Trump’s campaign. Yet they claimed the opposite contemporaneously on national television. Clapper was the worst, calling President Trump a Russian asset controlled by Vladimir Putin.
The Drudge Report ignored or barely reported on these “bombshells.”
However, this morning’s Drudge Report has links to the following stories prominently displayed: 1.”Docs show top WH officials buried CDC report;” 2. “Trump’s 2020 Jobs Bet Unravels;” and 3. “Will he claim election fraud if he loses?”
I’ve read unconfirmed reports that Matt Drudge sold his Drudge Report in 2019, but I could not find any details. No matter. The current content of The Drudge Report is proof enough that someone who hates our President has acquired it.
Regarding the "leaked news" the former Preznit Obama thinks that "our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk" in DOJ withdrawing it's accusations against Flynn . . .. Stacy McCain, Is Obama Living in an Alternative Reality?. Nick Arama at Red State, Jonathan Turley Rips Apart Obama’s ‘Leaked’ Statement About the DOJ and Flynn, and It’s Glorious
Althouse digests "Former President Barack Obama is being quoted from a private call that the 'rule of law is at risk' after the Justice Department moved to dismiss the case against... Michael Flynn."President Obama is being quoted on Flynn, saying "There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free." It is a curious statement. First and foremost, Flynn was not charged with perjury... https://t.co/fWlSFWkp8S— Jonathan Turley (@JonathanTurley) May 9, 2020
"Obama reportedly told members of the Obama Alumni Association that 'There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free.'... [But] former Attorney General Eric Holder... moved to dismiss such a case based on prosecutorial errors in front of the very same judge, Judge Emmet Sullivan.... The Obama statement is curious on various levels. First... Flynn was never charged with perjury... Second, there is ample precedent for this motion... Third, there is also case law.... Fourth, there are cases where the Department has moved to dismiss cases on grounds of prosecutorial misconduct or other grounds touching on due process, ethical requirements or other concerns.... The rare statement by President Obama is also interesting in light of the new evidence... that Obama was following the investigation of Flynn who he previously dismissed from a high-level position and personally intervened with President Donald Trump to seek to block his appointment as National Security Adviser. Obama reportedly discussed the use of the Logan Act against Flynn. For a person concerned with precedent, that was also a curious focus. The Logan Act is widely viewed as unconstitutional and has never been used to successfully convicted a single person since the early days of the Republic. Now that is dubious precedent."David Marcus at Da Fed, Barack Obama Forgets That Bill Clinton Got Away With Perjury. He doesn't forget; he just doesn't care.
