Despite a credible sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama is all in for the presumptive Democratic nominee. Now, Obama is redoubling his efforts, claiming the “rule of law is at risk” following the Justice Department’s decision to drop its case against Gen. Michael Flynn.
Not content to let Obama’s comments slide, South Carolina Congressman-turned-Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy responded during an on-air appearance yesterday.
Fox News’ Talia Kaplan reports:
“Where is [Obama’s] respect for the rule of law for the crime that Michael Flynn was the victim of?” Gowdy, a Fox News contributor, asked on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“Remember, he was unmasked by somebody in Obama’s administration and then it was leaked… that is a 10-year felony, to disseminate classified information,” he continued. “Michael Flynn was a victim of that crime.”
The Justice Department moved to end its case against Flynn after internal memos were released raising serious questions about the nature of the investigation that led to Flynn’s late-2017 guilty plea for lying to the FBI.
Already there are rumblings from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue about bringing Flynn back. Vice President Mike Pence offered a glowing assessment of Flynn and said he’d be “happy” to see him working at the White House.
Pence revealed his feelings in a clip from an interview shared with the New York Post and airing tonight on HBO.
“I think Gen. Michael Flynn is an American patriot,” Pence told Axios in a snippet of an interview released Sunday. “He served this country with great distinction in uniform. And now the decision by the Justice Department lays bare what was clearly prosecutorial abuse.”
