Notes by former FBI special agent Peter Strzok show former director James Comey advising President Obama that telephone calls between General Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak look like “legit.”
The handwritten memorialization of the meeting, which took place in early January, also generally seems to show former Vice President Joe Biden suggesting quest for the “Logan Act,” while Obama advised that “the right people” need certainly to look into Flynn.
The notes were submitted by Flynn’s legal team in a court filing Wednesday to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
“Mr. Obama himself directed that ‘the right people’ investigate General Flynn,” in line with the filing.
Comey, in accordance with Strzok’s scribbled notes replied that “Kislyak calls but appear legit.”
In yet another section labeled ‘VP’ for ‘Vice President,’ what “Logan Act” appear.
Flynn’s lawyers write in their memo that, “According to Strzok’s notes, it appears that Vice President Biden personally raised the idea of the Logan Act” which “became an admitted pretext to investigate General Flynn.”

RELATED: ‘Great!’ – Trump Celebrates Appeals Court Decision Ordering Dismissal Of Flynn Case
Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI over contacts with Russia in late 2017, but documents unsealed by the Department of Justice early in the day this year showed his plea was likely the result of a coercion and entrapment plot.
The call it self led to a few Obama officials requesting Flynn’s name be unmasked from intercepts of a telephone call with Kislyak.
After he was identified, leaked calls were published by the Washington Post’s David Ignatius on January 12, 2017, which led to Flynn’s firing.
Disclosing the identity of an American collaterally caught in surveillance is “a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.”
A federal appeals court today ordered a lower court to dismiss the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

RELATED: List Of Obama Officials Who ‘Unmasked’ General Flynn Has Been Declassified
Did Biden Lie?
In an interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden accused President Trump of linking him to the Flynn case as a diversion.
“I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn, number one. Number two, this is all about diversion,” he claimed.
Trump mocked the concept that Biden knew nothing after a listing of former Obama administration officials who ‘unmasked’ Flynn was declassified also it revealed the former Vice President’s name.
“He has no idea, he knows nothing about anything. Nothing at all. And then it gets released today that he was a big unmasker,” the president sarcastically replied. “So how do you know nothing if you’re one of the unmaskers?”
Strzok’s notes suggest Biden knew plenty and that the President, yet again, has proven correct.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) called the Democrat presidential nominee a liar.

“I hope a lot of people are going to pay a big price because they’re dishonest, crooked people,” President Trump has said regarding the Obama-Biden-Flynn scandal previously.
He has suggested those involved were “human scum” and committed “treason.”
“It was the greatest political crime in the history of our country,” Trump told Fox News in May. “If I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago, and I’m talking with 50-year sentences.”
“It is a disgrace what’s happened,” he continued. “This is the greatest political scam, hoax in the history of our country.”
Imagine spending your lifetime in service for this great country as General Flynn did, serving with honor and distinction, simply to have your whole life and reputation ruined by a community organizer and his buddies – all because they couldn’t accept the outcomes of an election.
Are you going to let these people back power again come November?
