Finally. General Flynn is getting his much-deserved revenge for what the Deep State did to him back in 2016. He’s suing the federal government for $50 million dollars for wrongful and malicious prosecution. So happy to hear this.. nobody deserves to take down the Deep State more than this guy. They really screwed him over and it was the first of many hits against President Trump.
Just The News reported that Flynn’s complaint stems from the Department of Justice’s prosecution of him over a 2017 interview with the FBI. He initially pled guilty but requested to withdraw from the plea agreement after the emergence of exculpatory evidence . Flynn was eventually pardoned after the DOJ asked to dismiss the charges against him.
Flynn contends that the DOJ was aware the prosecution against him lacked merit and cites a DOJ motion from then-U.S. Attorney Timothy Shea saying “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 [sic] not believe that the Government can prove either the relevant false statements or their materiality beyond a reasonable doubt.”
“The DOJ therefore admitted that they should never have brought this prosecution against General Flynn because the interview that formed the basis of the criminal information should never have happened and, even though it did happen, it was not a proper basis for the felony charge,” his legal team asserted.
The filing names the United States of America as a defendant.
Flynn is seeking compensatory damages to be determined by the court but that he expects to exceed $50 million, in addition to his legal fees and any other court-determined relief.
Let’s hope General Flynn wins.
