Hans von Spakovsky joined Fox Business on May 12, 2020, to discuss Richard Grenell declassifying the names of Obama officials who “unmasked” Michael Flynn.
According to the U.S. Justice Department, continuing to prosecute Michael Flynn “would not serve the interests of justice.” The way he was treated by FBI agents and Justice Department prosecutors—and even his own lawyers—should scare every American.
Fortunately, the Department of Justice, under the leadership of Attorney General William Barr, took a first step in righting this wrong by filing a motion to dismiss the charges against Flynn—charges that now look like they never should have been brought in the first place.
