Fools Rushed Flynn

Then-presidential candidate Donald Trump with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn during a September 2016 town hall meeting

This morning/afternoon.

Following the United States Justice Department decision to drop the criminal case against US President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge: “The last thing most Americans remember about General Flynn is that he was fired. And that he admitted lying to the FBI. Does the fact remain that he lied?”

US Attorney General William Barr: “Well, you know, people sometimes plead to things that turn out not to be crimes. … And the Department of Justice is not persuaded that this was material to any legitimate counterintelligence investigation. So it was not a crime.”

Herridge: “When a special counsel report was released last year, you were accused by critics of putting your thumb on the scale in the president’s favor. Are you doing the president’s bidding in General Flynn’s case?”

Barr: “No, I’m doing the law’s bidding. I’m doing my duty under the law, as I see it.”

Herridge: “You know you’re going to take a lot of incoming … for this decision. Are you prepared for that?”

Barr: “Yea, I’m prepared for that. I also think it’s sad that nowadays these partisan feelings are so strong that people have lost any sense of justice.”

Herridge: “What should Americans take away from your actions in the Flynn case today?”

Barr: “I was concerned people were feeling there were two standards of justice in this country. … I wanted to make sure that we restore confidence in the system. There’s only one standard of justice.”
