Don’t buy into the Cohen guilty plea and sentencing hype the Establishment Media is now manufacturing. Cohen was primarily charged on misdeeds totally unrelated to his professional relationship with Donald Trump. Today we get a glimpse of just how insidious this entire get-Trump operations has been via words from General Michael Flynn who faced an onslought of intimidation very early on in the Mueller investigation via now disgraced former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe.

Flynn says FBI pushed him not to have lawyer present during interview
In a lengthy court filing Tuesday, attorneys for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn alleged that then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe pushed Flynn not to have an attorney present during the questioning that ultimately led to his guilty plea on a single charge of lying to federal authorities.
The document outlines, with striking new details, the rapid sequence of events that led to Flynn’s sudden fall from the Trump administration. The filing also seemingly demonstrates that the FBI took a significantly more aggressive tack in handling the Flynn interview than it did during other similar matters, including the agency’s sit-downs with Hillary Clinton and ex-Trump adviser George Papadopoulos.
While Flynn is among several Trump associates to have been charged with making false statements as part of the Russia probe, no one interviewed during the FBI’s Clinton email investigation was hit with false statement charges – though investigators believed some witnesses were untruthful.
And there you find the primary operational tactic of the Mueller investigation. Call in associates of the Trump campaign and/or the Trump administration, keep them removed from legal counsel, pummel them with questions, then later assert that individual was not entirely truthful with the FBI – thus allowing for formal charges to be filed against them. Use those charges as leverage to get them to admit to Mueller-directed claims against Donald Trump.
To date the only one who has fully cooperated with this Gestapo-like inquisition is former Trump attorney, Michael Cohen. Cohen was found guilty of tax fraud, bank fraud, and, you got it, lying to the FBI – none of which is directly related to President Trump. What Cohen has done, though, in an effort to save his own neck, is portray himself as a loyalist victim willing to help cover up the president’s “evil deeds” which the Establishment Media will then blare far and wide in an attempt to further portray the president as someone who has done wrong. (despite no actual evidence that indicates he has.)
The FBI never did anything remotely like this to Hillary Clinton or the Obama administration despite multiple actual misdeeds and cover-ups by both. No, this is purely a means of trying to push a duly elected president, a true political outsider, out of office.
To his credit, General Flynn appears to have held the line and is now willing to share his experience combatting the serious abuses of federal authorities that attempted to destroy his life and reputation. What a terrible-terrible thing to have these high-ranking Deep State operatives running amok right now working against what has been one of the most successful and pro-American administrations in presidential history.
It’s clear what side the Deep State is on and it sure isn’t the side of the American people.
