Reacting to unsealed documents that appear to establish the FBI’s attempt to railroad Gen. Michael Flynn, Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano says that the case against Flynn should be thrown out immediately.
The Flynn criminal prosecution was “part of a plot to impair” the Trump presidency, the judge also declared on Fox & Friends this morning.
Flynn briefly served as President Trump’s national security advisor in the early days of the administration before the Deep State intervened.
Some observers believe that anti-Trump cohorts within the federal government attempted to use Flynn as a pretext to get to Trump.
The politicized FBI also allegedly threatened to prosecute the general’s son if he didn’t plead guilty to allegedly making false statements to agents.
I haven't seen anyone point out the obvious yet
They went hard after Flynn because they wanted to flip him and go after Trump
But Flynn refused

.@GenFlynn was forced to plead guilty to a crime he didn’t commit after Mueller’s persecution squad threatened his son Mike Jr..
Mueller threatened to frame a young dad and husband on fabricated charges if Gen. Flynn didn’t plea to a bogus charge.
Mueller should rot in prison.

The current firestorm was ignited by a handwritten note about the Flynn case in which an FBI official wondered “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”

“Anybody who believes in the rule of law, anybody who believes that the laws should be applied fairly, should be utterly scandalized and outraged by this,” Napolitano continued.
“This is a classic case of the FBI setting out to entrap someone and reducing it to writing…Here you have in writing, by a senior FBI official, that their goal is to ‘get’ him. Whether they like him or not, whether they think he’s guilty or not, that’s not the goal. The goal must be justice. But they actually plotted to bring him into a trap.”
Napolitano, a.k.a. Judge Nap, added that the Justice Department should apologize to Gen. Flynn in open court and that the career military officer and war hero should be exonerated one way or another.
“It should ask the judge to vacate the guilty plea. It should ask the judge to dismiss the indictment. If all of that doesn’t happen, then the president should pardon General Flynn within the next day or so. Because this type of behavior simply cannot be allowed to continue in America.”

The judge insisted Flynn’s brief conversation, which supposedly unleashed the FBI vendetta, with the Russian ambassador was “innocent” and “perfectly lawful.”
It was obvious from the beginning that Mike Flynn's ouster was a total set-up, because the circumstances of it were so implausibly stupid. They tried to criminalize completely routine phone conversations with the Russian ambassador

Napolitano’s assertions are perhaps even more notable in that he went from someone generally supportive of the Trump administration to backing the president’s impeachment by unhinged House Democrats over what Trump famously described as a “perfect phone call” with Ukraine’s president.
Flynn Attorney Sidney Powell has suggested that more documents are coming that will further expose FBI corruption in the Flynn case. The Flynn legal team is also seeking to withdraw the general’s original guilty plea.
