Attorney General Bill Barr dropped the hammer on the FBI and accused them of laying “A perjury trap for General Flynn.”
Barr sat down for an interview with CBS News on Thursday to discuss the dismissal of charges against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

And then they found out that they had not technically closed the earlier investigation. And they kept it open for the express purpose of trying to catch, lay a perjury trap for General Flynn.”
There is no doubt about it anymore, the FBI railroaded an innocent man and if it weren’t for Flynn’s legal team he would still be in prison.
Democrats derided President Trump’s calls to drain the swamp as paranoid ravings. But now everyone can see how out of control the FBI is.
