Is Our Two-Tiered System Of Justice Permanent?

Sara Carter
We all know that there is a separate system of justice for the Clintons, the Kennedys and other members of the Democrat elite, but what about the operators of the Deep State, are they also going to be permanently protected from accountability for their crimes?

As our friend Sara Carter observed in a recent column, we can already see that top senior officials at the FBI, thus far, have escaped any prosecution for lying and leaking.

But it wasn’t the same for others.

Just look at Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who is still fighting for justice against a bureaucracy that didn’t want him snooping around to discover how those in senior positions of power in the intelligence community and law enforcement were breaking the law and the spine of the U.S. constitution with unwarranted unmaskings, spying and weaponization of the intelligence apparatus.

General Flynn was arguably the chief architect of the Trump administration’s national security strategy and, having been with Donald Trump since early in the primaries, was one of the chief influencers of President Trump’s view of how to deal with the many threats facing our country.

That and the fact that he was not afraid to tell the truth about Obama’s national security failures put a target on his back early on.

“We are tired of Obama’s empty speeches and his misguided rhetoric. This has caused the world to have no respect for America’s word, nor does it fear our might,” Flynn said in his fiery speech to the Republican National Convention in July of 2016.

So how was General Flynn undermined so thoroughly that he lost the President’s confidence, resigned and eventually was forced to plead guilty to lying to the FBI?

First, it is important to understand that the Deep State is especially concentrated in the intelligence and security apparatus of the federal government.

General Flynn was at the center of the Obama Deep State; he was Deputy to James Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence and he headed the Defense Intelligence Agency, the military's competitor to the CIA and NSA.

However, General Flynn didn’t buy the Obama approach to the threat of militant Islam and especially the disaster in Syria.

Consequently, Flynn was targeted by former Obama Administration officials from the very beginning. Remember how former FBI Director James Comey laughed publicly about how he set up the former National Security Advisor.

And the targeting and set-up weren’t even subtle: Comey admitted he didn’t go through the White House counsel’s office, but arranged the meeting with FBI Special Agents Joe Pientka and Peter Strzok directly with Flynn. He said it was not standard practice. He said it was “something I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more … organized administration.”

Let’s not forget, wrote Sara Carter, that both Strzok and Pientka did not believe Flynn was lying when he spoke to them about the conversation he had with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. In fact, they had the record of the conversation but didn’t tell Flynn they had it when asking him to recall the conversation. Comey even admitted to the fact that the agents didn’t believe Flynn was lying but it didn’t matter. The power of the special counsel prosecutors, the threat against dragging his son into the mess and their deep purse was enough to push Flynn to plead guilty.

Comey, however, didn’t need to be pushed. He openly admitted to leaking his confidential memos, of which some contained classified information, to the media. He admitted he did it through a close friend with the intention of getting his other friend former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to call for a Special Counsel against President Trump. Comey knew full well the information regarding conspiracy with Russia was unverified garbage and he knew Trump had every right to fire him under Article 2 of the constitution. It didn’t matter.

Comey obviously felt protected. He wasn’t worried about prosecution because those that would hold him accountable were already on his side and they wanted to target Trump. He also had lap dogs in the media spewing every lie he, along with his cohorts, to decide to put out and no one questioning their intentions or actions. It is a perfect storm.

Sources have told Sara Carter that the prosecution would be difficult because Comey’s attorneys could argue he was not grossly negligent – so why not let them make that argument in court and bankrupt Comey as Gen. Flynn was bankrupted?

Ms. Carter has been told that the information being collected by Barr appointed Connecticut Attorney John Durham, will be chilling, stunning and justice will be served, but we’re not so sure.

Conservatives were stunned when the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr declined prosecution of Comey for leaking – even after he publicly admitted it. And the Department of Justice has steadfastly refused to prosecute other insiders for lying to Congress and to the DOJ’s own Inspector General, even as Roger Stone was indicted, has a lengthy prison sentence hanging over his head, is being bankrupted fighting similar allegations.

There are only two people who can assure that this two-tiered system of justice does not become a permanent feature of American society: President Trump and Attorney General William Barr.

We urge both of those good men to act with firmness and alacrity to ensure that justice is served in the specific cases of Comey, McCabe, Strzok and the rest of those implicated in the soft coup against President Trump and to ferret out and purge from the government all of those who have thus far protected them from prosecution.
