"Finally back right story about a couple of years alright because we asked for an update on that okay whatever happened to that and why did we hear from Samantha power otherwise I mean I know her testimony again was behind closed doors but I mean why did we hear anything else and now we are about Mr Flynn was unmasked by at least four U. S. ambassadors six treasury officials and people connected to the energy and justice departments and NATO among others mmhm then FBI director James Comey CIA director John Brennan then director of national intelligence James clapper also made the list this means they have access to transcripts of any phone conversations Flynn had with foreign sources as he prepared to take power V. what I'm asking is important because it occurred amid a media frenzy over supposed trump campaign collusion with Russia leaks to The Washington Post about the conversations between the Russian ambassador and both Mr flan and soon to be Attorney General Jeff sessions were played up as central to the collusion scandal they because Mr sessions to recuse himself from the Russia probe and Mr Flynn to be fired while I'm masking is not a legal leaking the intelligence is there are other dots to connect documents released last week showed that former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates first learned about the plan wire tapping with no last then we went from no less president Barack Obama on January fifth two thousand seven the oval office meeting at least one of the on massacres must've told Mr Obama and the dates of unmasking raise further questions yep you guys interest to Mr Flynn was supposedly triggered by conversations starting on December twenty ninth yet Mr Flynn was first on mask a month earlier shortly after Mr trump name him advisor the McDonough unmasking takes place on January fifth that's Obama's chief of staff the date of the oval office meeting of which Mr Flynn was discussed Mr Biden's unmasking request was made on January twelfth two thousand seventeen the day The Washington Post reported on the flame Russia conversation here that one yeah while Mr Biden's unmasking requests made on January twelfth the day The Washington Post reported on the flan Russia conversation Mr Biden has some explaining to do all this is fodder for U.

Barr says FBI tried to lay a "perjury trap" for Flynn

"Well Michael Flynn is finally free from the department of justice and the FBI you know they really destroyed his life at Mattel intent telling you all about Michael Flynn here in the last couple of days as has all the host on W. B. A. P. of course this is been an ongoing story they absolutely destroyed his life your member Michael Flynn he was there in the trump administration and they really went after him with an intensity and vigor and the reason why they did was because they were trying to destroy not only Michael Flynn but the trump administration now remember the lead up to all of this the FBI here in the last several days was found to have tried to set up Flynn you remember the notes that they found they were finally released but the hand written notes that basically proved that the FBI we're trying to set him up to why they call it a perjury trap so that they could either get him fired or arrest him now my point with the whole Michael Flynn story is that they're trying to get him fired or arrest him get him to lie whatever wise so that they could continue down the path of the Russian Russian investigation and ultimately the Muller investigation see that's what they were trying to do the big question here with Michael Flynn is how high up did all of this go get it go all the way up to the office of Barack Obama and conversely Joe Biden see this has a lot of people on the laughter saying you know what this is all such old news Michael Flynn whatever this doesn't matter it does matter it matters because of Joe Biden it matters because Biden has been running partially on his eight years as vice president with Barack Obama so if Biden was in on the whole Flynn perjury trap thing which I believe that he was then that matters right now I mean to me it matters anyway but if I'm gonna sit here and argue with some of these leftists who you know would say Michael Flynn the whole thing doesn't matter you know if he pleaded guilty anyway well that doesn't matter the reason why Michael Flynn pleaded guilty was because he was losing everything do you know Michael Flynn is four point five million dollars in legal fees that's what the FBI did to an innocent man it is absolutely abhorrent and so the president heard that Michael Flynn the charges were being dropped against him and he was ecstatic I didn't know that was happening at this moment I felt it was going to happen just like watching and seeing like everybody else does he was an innocent man he is a a great gentleman he was targeted by the Obama administration yeah yeah again very big news and what they wanted to do was they wanted to again continue down the path of the Russian investigation and ultimately lead to the special counsel investigation which ultimately blew up and the F. B. I.'s face but the whole point is that they were trying to destroy president trump's first term they wanted a high jacket because he was going to dismantle Obama's policies and they didn't like that the deep swamp the deep state in the swamp they absolutely wanted to do whatever they could to derail the charges and so now the to derail the trump administration and so now the DOJ said in dropping the charges in this was earlier today this is a quote the announcement came in a court filing after a considered a review of all the facts and all the circumstances of this case including newly discovered and disclosed information as the department put at DOJ officials said they concluded that Flynn's interview by the FBI was untethered to you and I'm justified by the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Mr Flynn and that the interview was conducted without any legitimate investigative basis yes in the end here's the frustrating thing they knew that they didn't have anything on Michael Flynn yet they continue down that road and here's another question why in the hell did it take so long for them to finally the DOJ to finally drop the charges why is this taking so long I believe they were forced into it I believe that when the notes were discovered in in some of these other and this some of this other exculpatory evidence was discovered and that that exculpatory evidence you know evidence that would prove that Michael Flynn was innocent of all of this was kept under wraps then the department of justice they had no choice but to raise their hands and say yeah we screwed up you know this was Obama's FBI this was James Comey's FBI and you know Christopher Wray and all these folks currently leading the FBI you know they're out there saying well now yeah you know we we've been looking at this we've been watching this we've been considering what to do with all of this ride you were absolutely shame to what I would say because a lot of Republicans are now saying that the F. B. I. need yet another house cleaning because these charges should have been dropped a long time

Trump says Roger Stone has 'very good chance of exoneration' hours after sentencing

"Get some more and larger stones set and see our senior justice. Evan Perez is here our crime and justice. Chiba Polka. Pez is also working the story for Evan. You're inside the courtroom when you heard Judge Amy. Berman Jackson read out her decision. It was a dramatic moment. It was it was over an hour where she was essentially going through methodically. The aspects of this case including some of the arguments made by Roger Stone by the president and some of his allies that Roger Stone was being targeted for some For for his First Amendment right to stand up for president trump that he was essentially being targeted for being a political trickster. She says none of those things are true. I'll read you just a part of her remarks during the sentencing. Today she says quote stone wasn't obstructing not some secret anti-trump Cabal but he lied to Congress. You'll remember that. He was convicted of lying to Congress during testimony to the House. A House of Representatives as well as witness tampering threatening one of the witnesses in this in this case and so she took all of this on. She talked a little bit about some of his Some of his emails some of the threats that he made to Randy critical one of his associates And during that time well if we were all watching Roger Stone and he and he behaved himself mostly in court but during that time as she read some of his obscene emails. You can see him turnaround smirk and look at their two rows of his followers inside the courtroom today She also took to con the issue of of the politics. That are play in this case. she says quote he was Roger. Stone says he was not prosecuted as some have claimed for standing up for the president he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. One of the things we were watching today to wolf was the prosecution. John Crabs stood up today and essentially walked back to the original sentencing memo the recommendation that was made for seventy two seven seven to nine years From the prosecution team which resigned which quit the case in the middle of controversy over over President Trump's interference in his and the prosecutors the prosecutors stood up and he said he apologized for all the drama that happened in the past week wolf and he said that the original sentencing memo was essentially submitted. In good faith it was exactly according to Justice Department policy and it was within the guidelines that are established is interesting because we know the president. He clearly tried to influence the outcome of this trial from the very beginning. And the judge Amy Berman Jackson. She addressed that specifically. She did and it's not just the outcome of this trial. Let's the entire the entire Muller investigation where you see. The president has has inserted himself tweeting. It's talking about it at campaign rallies publicly talking about and the judge really today. That's what some of this was about. She wanted to address some of the influence and also the attempted influence and also the prosecutors who now have taken over this case day to said that the Department of Justice is. There's no political interference you know we're here to be fair and the judges continued. I mean we saw her going. After Roger Stone we saw her in some ways going after the president and then taking on the whole the political drama surrounding this case and what she said and this judge docs and she said the dismay and disgust at any attempt to interfere with the efforts of prosecutors and members of the JUDICIARY TO FULFIL. Their duty should transcend. Party this is a big moment in the sentencing. This was the overall I should say theme. I felt throughout her sensing proceeding was a larger message. Here because judiciary is under attack and this was a moment in time for the judge to defend the judiciary defend other judges and defend the system. Which is really under attack right continues to be under attack by the president. Today he railed against what's going on in the problem. Pardon you certainly. Did our guys stick around Evan and Shimon reporting for now. Let's go to the White House. Our chief White House correspondent Jim. Acosta is also working the story for a strip. The president was quick to speak out about Roger Stone's sentencing. That's right well. The president responded to speculation that he is about to pardon Roger Stone. The president suggested he will wait and see how the appeals process plays out for his former advisor saying he hopes stone is exonerated and while the president didn't offer stone at immediate. Pardon he didn't exactly close the door on that possibility either. President trump threw his support behind his convicted former adviser. Roger Stone but stopped short of offering a pardon to the dirty trickster just hours after he was sentenced in federal court. I'm not GONNA do anything. In terms of the great powers bestowed upon a president of the United States. I want the process to play out. I think that's the best thing to do. Because I'd love to see Roger Exonerated and I'd love to see it happen because I personally think. He was treated very unfairly and an event honoring rehabilitated prisoners. In Las Vegas. The president ripped into the jury forewoman at the stone trial accusing her of being an anti-trump activist that was in response to her facebook. Post defending the prosecutors in the stone case so if this woman was tainted I hope the judge will find that you was tainted. And if she isn't tainted that will be fine to now. You would know about a bad jury. Anybody here know about that now. The president question. How could be sentenced to forty months in prison in part for lying to Congress but MR trump unleashed a flat out falsehood of his own when he said stone was not involved with this campaign in Twenty fifteen? The trump campaign said it fired stone. Roger was never involved in the trump campaign for president. He wasn't involved early on long before he announced he may have done a little consulting work or something but he was not involved when I ran for president. And he's a person who again he knows. A lot of people having to do with politics. Stone is now part of a growing group of trump associates sentenced or awaiting prison sentences. Democrats worried the president is floating the idea of parts to try to keep those associates quiet while I think that he's dangled the pardon Often with Mrs with regard to Mr Stone and Mr Flynn in part to In my opinion to signal to them that if they stay on the team that they don't reveal further information that they might possess about the president that they'll be taken care of the judge overseeing stones trial took a jab at Mr Trump at one point sang at the former trump campaign adviser sentencing that he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. Mr Trump had been teasing the possibility of a stone. Pardon tweeting video of Fox host calling for leniency. The whole thing is enough to shake your faith in our justice system. Unfortunately president trump could end this tragedy travesty in an instant with pardon and there are indications tonight that he will do that. Trump allies are also reminding the president he has the power to pardon stone with GOP. Senator Lindsey Graham tweeting under our system of justice. President trump has all the legal authority in the world to review this case and terms of commuting the sentence or partying Mr Stone for the underlying offense as the attacks on the four women in the stone. Trial a fellow juror. In the case said the president and the Attorney General are doing damage to the Justice System. Big Cast doubt on the the bedrock of the equal administration of Justice. That is just so so important to our country I think he damages our democracy by attacking this way and I wish he would stop now as for a pardon for Roger. Stone trump

Trump wishes ex-adviser Flynn 'good luck' as sentencing nears

"Me Rocca. Let's just take a brief sidebar, Mr Flynn, who is away. Waiting sentencing dumped his last lawyer and has taken on a new one. We know this, thanks to the president's tweet this morning. General Michael Flynn, the thirty three year war hero, who has served with distinction has not retained a good lawyer. He has retained a great lawyer. Sydney Powell best wishes and good luck to them. Both. Sydney Powell is a frequent contributor and guest on Fox News. Well known in the Republican legal world, what does all this mean to you does anything? Get your attention there. I mean, the whole thing really gets your attention. I can't tell you exactly where this is going. But look, first of all, Flynn, is about to be sentenced, this, judge has signalled very pretty clearly that he was planning on sending Flynn to jail. And we have no reason to think yet that that would have changed. I think Flynn is going down a different path. He thinks, well, if I'm going to go to jail with this judge, then I might as well, roll the dice on a pardon and Trump is certainly signaling that he is amenable to that, by that tweet. I mean I thought that tweet was astonishing. Because first of all, he supposedly fired Flynn because he was not an honest man who had lied to the vice president. I mean for Hinton now go back and he's doing the dance that he did. With Manafort, and with Cohen, the oh, he's a good man. He's a good man. I mean he's holding out something for him now, the possibility of the pardon, and this at a time when Flynn is being subpoenaed to congress. There is still very much Lynn could do in his cooperation in his testimony now with congress and Trump knows that and I think this is his way of holding out this pardon holding out the possibility it hasn't worked out for Manafort. So I don't know.

"However, the judge has decided to postpone his sentencing if he agreed to specific deal. So at Flynn sentencing hearing, judge Emmet Sullivan actually called Flint's crimes, quote, a very serious offense and said he was not hiding his disgust at what Mr Flynn had done. So Flynn had lied to the FBI about a number of things, including his conversations with a Russian ambassador. But he also lied about the fact that he was essentially a foreign agent he was doing work on behalf of the Turkish government. And he again had not been forthcoming about those things when he was being questioned by the FBI. Now, the judge continued to say all along you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the national security adviser arguably that undermines everything that this flag over here. Stands for arguably you saw. Hold your country out. Now Flynn does face some time in prison. Even though prosecutors have asked for leniency in this case because he has co-operated with prosecutors, especially in the Russian investigation. So Flynn does face up to six months in prison. But federal prosecutors have recommended lenient sentence, including the possibility of probation because Flynn is provided quote substantial help with multiple criminal inquiries. Okay. So until now we were unsure of what other criminal investigations he was involved in or at least helping in. But just this week. We found out what he is actually assisting prosecutors with so on Monday federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment featuring to Flynn's former business associates of conspiring with Turkey in two thousand sixteen to pressure the United States to expel a rival of president aired one prosecutors said Flynn, aided them in the case. Okay. Slow spreaker stone. They'll be hilarious. Trump excuses in a second. But first I want to give my assessment of the seriousness of different charges. So he lied to the FBI. Sure, that's a serious charge of for me. It depends more for the law dependent all that bad. It's a very serious charge said they for him right in terms of how much I would want. Prosecutors suppress on that. I'd ask. Why what what was he lying about? Okay. So we'll come back to that. In one second the second charge. I think is massive. And and partly why he might be cooperating with them on the first charge, which is the. Being a registered for unregistered foreign agent for Turkey. You know, the plan was to kidnap someone in Pennsylvania and somehow get them over to the Turkish government. And Michael Flynn was participating in that. That's nuts..

Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting stormy Daniels payments, no campaign finance violation. So through lawful. Then the president, he North Korea summit. We now have a day and we have a location. Paradise ignites a difficult thing to watch the floor is unpredictable in his own words. Here, maybe I'll have another five years. Maybe I'll be gone before you hear this. People in events that made headlines when world news this week continues. There's a lot coming at you right now, turmoil tweets, an insane amount of chatter. I'm Brad milkey with ABC news and I'm here to throw you a lifeline. It's a new podcast called start here or are experts give you on the ground access to the biggest stories of the day. We're going to give you some context, some clarity among the chaos, twenty minutes every weekday subscribe now on apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast and start here. What did you know about phone calls that Mr Flynn made with the Russian ambassador? What did you mean in your interview? With Lester Holt about Mr.. Komi in Russia. Those are two of the forty nine questions. Robert Muller's special council wants to ask President Trump in a sit down interview according to a document leaked to the media this week, ABC's congressional correspondent MAry, Bruce on what else is in those questions. The list of nearly fifty probing questions. Special counsel, Robert Muller has for President Trump lines of questioning, Muller shared with Trump's own legal team. The list now published by the New York Times and what the president is now calling a disgraceful leak Russian collusion. Give me a break. Trump insists. Molars list has no questions on collusion, but that's not true. The special counsel has questions about Paul Manafort once the president's campaign chairman according to the times, Muller wants to ask Trump what knowledge did he have any outreach by his campaign, including by Paul Manafort to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign. Muller also wants to ask the president win. Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting that infamous sit down Don Jr. Jared, Kushner? Manafort in Russians, they were told had dirt on Hillary Clinton much of Muller's list centers on possible obstruction of Justice by the president. The special counsel wants to know what if I were made to reach out to Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn about seeking immunity or possible? Pardon. And what did Trump mean when he said this about firing his FBI director, James Komi when I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, you know, this rusher thing. Thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story N when Trump told Russian diplomats and this Oval Office meeting that firing Komi had taken the pressure off, what did he mean by that? Another question Muller wants answered, what discussions did the president have regarding terminating the special counsel with the release of those questions also came word that the special counsel has warned President Trump's legal team, that if the president refuses an interview, Muller could issue a subpoena ABC news, chief legal analyst. Dan Abrahams says, this raises the stakes, let's say it works its way all the way through the courts. The supreme court then says, sorry, this is a valid subpoena and the president says, well, I don't think so, and I'm not going to show up. That's when you have the real potential crisis. We use this word constitutional crisis all the time. I think that the only real crisis occurs if you have in the end, a real war between two branches of government were one of saying, you can't tell me what to do the president. However, maintaining he's still willing to sit down with Muller despite what his legal team is telling him. I would love to speak. I would love to nobody wants to speak more than me back against my lawyers because most lorries they never picked another. I would love to say, what is it like to sit down with a special counsel's team former Trump campaign adviser. Michael Caputo recently did so, and he's detailing the experience to ABC news, chief Justice correspondent Pierre, Thomas former Trump political adviser. Michael Caputo helped in the early stages of a campaign from Trump Tower says he won't soon. Forget the grilling. He says, he took from two FBI juice and a prosecutor with a special counsel's team three hours. Plus they weren't pulling any punches at at some points in time. I, it got kind of frightening. Caputo says the agents knew so much about his life. It scared him. They know everything here. They know more about what I did in two thousand sixteen than I do, but will the investigators after they're talking about the timing of some things that happened at the campaign and at the convention. I think they're completely focused on collusion. With Russia. According to Caputo, there was a lot of focus on the hack of the DNC by Russian operative known as goussev for and WikiLeaks, which published stolen information. This is his stark assessment on whether Muller's anywhere near done, investigating possible collusion. I'm hoping this end soon, but it sounds to me like they have more dating to do today. Give you any sense that they have anything. I believe that they, they think they're onto something what that is. I don't know. They're not messing around. Caputo, says investigators Pepperdine with questions about his friends. The president's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Paul Manafort who's been indicted on money laundering charges. The president's longtime friend and advisor, Roger stone. The one thing he says, surprised him from the interview. It was remarkable to me that the president was brought up. Nobody with last name Trump came up at all. Speaking of the president's legal team, there were major shakeups yet again this week with top White House lawyer, tie Cobb telling ABC news. Be leaving having, you know, stay longer than I intended, but believing that the end of this month ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl spoke with Cobb about his departure from the president's team out tie Cobb, the lead White House lawyer dealing with the special counsel replaced by Amit flood who was one of President Clinton's impeachment lawyers Cobb tells me he was ready to leave almost everything that I was brought on to do as Ben accomplished comet employed a strategy of patients with Muller cooperation. Definitely. What is the right move? And and definitely the path that would lead to the quickest resolution. But it was President Trump's newest lawyer, former mayor, Rudy Giuliani who created shockwaves this week when he told FOX's Sean Hannity, that money was not campaign money. Sorry, I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know, it's not campaign money, no campaign finance violation. So they've funneled through law firm. Frontal through over and the president. It. I didn't know Giuliani acknowledging for the first time that the president repaid that one hundred thirty thousand dollars to his personal attorney. Michael Kohn ABC's giancarl with a new explanation from the White House last month. The president, flatly denied knowing anything about the hush money Cohen claimed he paid Daniels out of his own pocket.
