Obama-Biden directed Justice Department Flynn criminal investigation

June 25, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reacting to the newly disclosed hand-written note by former FBI Peter Strzok from Jan. 2017 confirming key involvement in the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn by former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden:

“The newly revealed Strzok hand-written note confirms that former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden were intimately involved in decisions made in early Jan. 2017 that eventually resulted in Michael Flynn being charged. This shouldn’t surprise anyone given the Obama White House’s close involvement with the tea party targeting by the IRS. This proves the left, which always says that the White House shouldn’t be involved with DOJ decision making, had no problem with Obama and Biden being involved with a top-level criminal investigation of the incoming Trump administration.

“If the same thing happened with Trump, the impeachment hearings would already be proceeding. Yet now we know that Obama was at the heart of investigating his political opponents, with the Logan Act being discussed in the Oval Office and Obama-Biden withholding information from the Trump transition team, and directing the FBI to continue investigating the now debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theory.

“The Justice Department dropping the Flynn is a good first step but every DOJ employee who is found to have been a protagonist should be summarily canned and those who’ve already left should have their pensions challenged given the gross malfeasance uncovered that interrupted the peaceful transition of power in 2017.”
