President Trump has accused the Hussein Obama-era Justice Department of “treason” following news that the DOJ will drop their case against former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn.
President Trump called Lt. General Flynn a “warrior” and warned that the “human scum” involved in bringing a case against him will “pay a price.”
The President also said the media was complicit in taking down Flynn and should return Pulitzer Prizes awarded for coverage of the Flynn-Russia probe.
“He was an innocent man,” President Trump said. “He is a great gentleman, he was targeted by the Obama administration and he was targeted in order to try and take down a President and what they have done is a disgrace and I hope a big price is going to be paid, a big price should be paid.“
“I hope a lot of people are going to pay a big price because they are dishonest, crooked people. They are scum and I say it a lot, they are scum, they are human scum,” the President told reporters.
“The Obama Administration Justice Department was a disgrace and they got caught, they got caught, very dishonest people but much more than dishonest, it is treason, it is treason,” President Trump said. “So I am very happy for general Flynn. He was a great warrior and he still is a great warrior. Now in my book he is an even greater warrior.“
“Who would you like to see pay a price for this?” a reporter asked.
“The people should pay a big price for what they have done to this country,” President Trump said. “They should pay a big price and their partner very complicit is a thing called the media. The media is totally guilty and all of those writers and so-called journalists, they are not journalists, they are thieves, all of those journalists that received a Pulitzer Prize should be forced to give those Pulitzer Prizes back because they were all wrong.”
“Pulitzer Prizes should all be returned because you know what, they were given out falsely. It was fake news. They are all fake news, those Pulitzer Prizes should be given back immediately and the Pulitzer committee or whoever gives the prizes they are a disgrace unless they take those prizes back because they got Pulitzer Prizes for what turned out to be false stories and Pulitzer Prizes should be given to the ones that got it right and I can give you a long list of those names to and you know who I am talking about.”
US Attorney Timothy Shea filed a motion to dismiss the case against Flynn in DC District Court Thursday. The motion cited the recently revealed documents and argued they show the FBI’s 2017 interview of Flynn “was untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn.”
“The Government is not persuaded that the January 24, 2017 interview was conducted with a legitimate investigative basis and therefore does not believe Mr. Flynn’s statements were material even if untrue. Moreover, we [do] not believe that the Government can prove either the relevant false statements or their materiality beyond a reasonable doubt,” She wrote.
The DC District Court still must formally approve the government’s request to dismiss the case.
