The newly released unclassified House Intelligence Committee report reveals that there were some questionable redactions used in the original. Check it out…
Sean Davis of the Federalist lays out a compelling case that the redactions relating to the Michael Flynn case were put in to protect swamp-things like Comey.
It’s interesting to note what is and isn’t redacted.
Here is what Davis posted on Twitter:
Here are the first pages he shared. This is the same document.
As you can see in the example above, in the first release there were massive redactions on the page, yet the newly released unclassified version has much of the text visible. Davis explains why in his comment — the two interviewers ‘didn’t think that he [Flynn] was lying‘, and it ‘wasn’t a great beginning to a false statement case‘.
Here’s a close up:
Also covered up by the DOJ/FBI was this little gem that Comey clearly testified to the committee that the agents didn’t think that Flynn had lied: ‘Comey testified to the Committee that ‘the agents…discerned no physical indications of deception. They saw nothing that indicated…he was lying to them.‘
Baier asked Comey directly if he told lawmakers that interviewers didn’t believe that Michael Flynn was intentionally lying to them. Comey said, ‘No.’
Comey is obviously lying somewhere.
The question is, was he lying under oath or was he lying to Bret Baier?
This report means that there was no reason to pursue an investigation into Michael Flynn’s actions. He was the incoming Secretary of State and investigators didn’t believe that he was deliberately lying to them.
But an investigation was pursued, and it was devastating to Flynn.
Why? Simply for political reasons.
Can anyone say, ‘witch hunt’?
If only someone had brought up some of the unfair treatment of Michael Flynn before…
As the DOJ and FBI continue pursuing non-criminal activity to punish political enemies and protect their own, (as Obama set the precedent to do with the IRS scandal,) there are going to be more people testifying before government officials the way that Michael Caputo did, ‘God Damn you to Hell.’
Who could blame them for that?

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
