As you likely know, the years-long case against former Lt. General Michael Flynn experienced a severe break this past week. Thousands of documents and transcripts were released that spoke not only of the former national security adviser’s innocence but a deep running scam to entrap him in perjury. And the plot went all the way up to then-President Barack Obama.
As a result, the Department of Justice, under the guidance of Attorney General William Barr, has requested that the entire case be dismissed.
But while the documents may have secured a safer or at least more peaceful future for LGT Flynn, they have opened a larger can of worms for all those involved. And one of those is presidential candidate and the assumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
You see, at the time, Biden was second in command as Obama’s vice president. And as is typical, what the president knows, so does the VP.
Plus, one of those recently released documents proves that Obama had a discussion about the “Russia” investigation and Michael Flynn while Biden was in the Oval Office with him. Therefore, it would have been impossible for Biden not to know what was going on, at least on some level.
And this has caused many to raise the question of just what does Biden know. Did he know that the FBI, in cooperation with Obama, were trying to sink the Trump administration before it ever began? Did he know that Flynn was being set up by the FBI?
Even the slightest detail at this point could change everything.
So it is no surprise that on Tuesday, Biden was asked about the case by Good Morning America host and former Clinton White House staffer George Stephanopoulos. However, Biden’s answer was so packed with ums, blunders, and diversions that it was hardly comprehensible.
Stephanopoulos said, “I do want to ask you about Michael Flynn, the former national security advisor to President Trump and the move by the Justice Department last week to dismiss the case against him for lying to the FBI. The president said yesterday that that move was justified because President Obama targeted Flynn. He called it the, quote ‘the biggest political crime in U.S. history.’ Your former Senate colleague, Charles Grassley, has added that Flynn was entrapped and asked on the Senate floor, ‘What did Obama and Biden know? When did they know it?’ So, what did you know about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn, and was there anything improper done?”
Biden, right off the bat, claimed to have known nothing, which we already know is false. But before he could be corrected, the former vice president went into a rant about how all this a “diversion” from the Trump administration’s poor handling of the coronavirus crisis.
Luckily Stephanopoulos didn’t let Biden get away with his non-answer. So he repeated himself, adding that the nation already knew that Biden was in the room for at least one conversation on the topic.
Of course, Biden then claimed that he had misunderstood the question.
“I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted, I’m sorry.” Then he stated, “I was aware that they had asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it. And I don’t think anything else.”
So he admits that he does actually know something, although not much. But then adds that he doesn’t “think” he knows anything else? What kind of answer is that?
Either you know, or you don’t.
Now, it’s highly possible that he doesn’t know anything more. After all, Obama himself already admitted that he didn’t always tell Biden everything because he has a way of letting it slip and saying it in a most unflattering way.
Then again, maybe he does. Notice in the interview that things are going relatively smoothly for the assumed nominee until asked about this. Then it is suddenly all blunders. He can’t even seem to form a single coherent thought, only to finally stumble upon the conclusion that it’s a diversion, once again.
If gaffes, non-consistent denial, and “diversion” tactics say anything, it is that lies are being told.
