General Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, has been pushing back on the deep state for several years. Now he is holding the government, which he willingly gave his life serving, accountable for the unfair criminal prosecution they put him through. The retired three-star general has filed a suit for $50 million against the U.S. government.
Tracy Beanz tweeted a photo of Flynn’s lawsuit and wrote, “Breaking: Michael T Flynn has just filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Government for Malicious Prosecution and Abuse of process. I will thread this for you as soon as possible.”

In May 2020, General Flynn’s attorneys noted that the D.O.J. was moving to dismiss the false statement charges that had been brought against Flynn in November 2017. Flynn has argued that the lawsuit against him was part of a political witch hunt against Donald Trump. The F.B.I. used the politically inspired phony Crossfire Hurricane investigation, which was based on the infamous dossier conceived by Christoper Steele, who is former British intelligence and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign along with the D.N.C. paid for Steele’s dossier. It was a deplorable attack on Trump and men such as Flynn, who were portrayed dishonestly by the Democratic party.
According to Flynn’s lawyers, the F.B.I. was unable to establish the connection it was searching for. F.B.I. agents, including Peter Strzok, were sent to interview Flynn after a connection linking the General to a working relationship with Russia could not be established. Strzok’s interview took place at the White House on Jan 24, 2017, shortly after President Trump took office. Flynn did not know he was being investigated or that he could be criminally charged based on the information he gave.

Flynn’s court filing alleges that the F.B.I. was trying to entrap him during the interview,
“During this interview, F.B.I. agents Strzok and Pientka were attempting to trap General Flynn in a misstatement or omission so that they could charge him with a false statement violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001. This malicious intent continued throughout the F.B.I.’s investigation and the subsequent investigation and prosecution by the Special Counsel’s office.”
A charge was made against Flynn for making a false statement regarding his phone call with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Agents Strzok and Pientka knew what the call transcripts said and that the content was legitimate but still worked to ensnare Flynn.
Flynn was working for Trump as part of his transition team and was justified in taking part in the call with Kislyak as a new National Security Advisor to the President.
The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered D.C. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan to drop the charges against Flynn, but he refused and only gave way when President Trump pardoned Flynn on Nov 25, 2020. As a result, Sullivan finally dismissed the case.
