Trump teases ‘MUCH more to come' after DOJ drops Flynn case

President Trump hinted there could be more action from the Justice Department after it reversed course and filed to dismiss criminal charges against his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“Yesterday was a BIG day for Justice in the USA. Congratulations to General Flynn, and many others. I do believe there is MUCH more to come! Dirty Cops and Crooked Politicians do not go well together!” Trump tweeted Friday.

Trump and his allies have often cited Flynn’s prosecution in attacking the FBI’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, but later declared his innocence and argued he was set up by the FBI.

In moving to drop the charges on Thursday, the Justice Department said in a court filing that after reviewing newly disclosed materials, it agreed with Flynn’s attorneys that his interview with the FBI should never have taken place because his conversations with the Russian ambassador were “entirely appropriate."

Some former officials, including ex-FBI Director James Comey, have accused Attorney General William Barr of politicizing the Justice Department, and Democrats are renewing calls for his resignation.





LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
