(FreedomJournal.Org)- White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has really stepped up to the plate in her role ever since President Donald Trump canceled the daily White House coronavirus press briefings. Trump ended the daily press conferences because of the hostility from the media, handing the reins over to McEnany to keep them in check.
During the Friday press briefing, McEnany discussed the decision by the Department of Justice to drop the prosecution of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and her incredible takedown of the FBI has gone viral.
McEnany thanked the “rank-and-file” workers in the FBI, before suggesting that the work they do is “separate and apart from what I’m about to address right now.”
She then moved on to criticize the leaders of the FBI who led the corrupt investigation into Michael Flynn.
“The FBI exists to investigate crimes, but in the case of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, it appears that they might have existed to manufacture one,” she explained. “As a motion filed by the Department of Justice yesterday explained, the FBI set out to interview general Michael Flynn when they had no predicate for any investigation of any crimes.”
McEnany was referencing the court documents that recently showed how Michael Flynn was set up by the FBI and prosecutors, and forced to lie about his conversations with the then-ambassador for Russia as part of a deal to protect his family.
She explained how Flynn was treated poorly by the FBI, and that she believes something needs to change so that Americans can trust the justice system.
“As we move forward as a country, it’s important to take these revelations very seriously in order for Americans to have faith in our justice system,” she said.
Do you have faith in the system right now?
She said that if the top leaders of the FBI can go about targeting a three star general who served in the military and served the country for decades, “make no mistake, they can target you.”
“It’s hard to believe that this happened in the United States of America. General Michael Flynn’s life was forever changed. He had to sell his home. He faced financial ruin. His family was even threatened with prosecution,” she said.
Quoting Baron de Montesquieu, she said, “there is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”
Do you think she’s right? It if turns out that the FBI targeted General Flynn for political reasons, then who else has this happened to?
