Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, whose career Justice Department officials wanted to destroy, has filed a lawsuit against the FBI and DOJ out of righteous outrage and ardent patriotism.
The suit seeks $50 million in damages for “malicious prosecution.”
Fearless of retaliation for speaking up, Flynn has placed the FBI and the US government on notice. “He is coming for them,” the Department of Justice has been warned.
Former FBI Director James Comey and President Barack Obama, who instructed the Justice Department to pursue Flynn just before Donald Trump took office, are reportedly among his targets.
Flynn was President Donald Trump’s national security advisor when defamed and falsely prosecuted by the FBI.
According to The Western Journal:
Flynn is now seeking “$5 million in property damages and an additional $45 million in personal injury for the years-long persecution for allegedly lying to the FBI — a charge he has steadfastly denied.”
On “The Absolute Truth with Emerald Robinson” on Tuesday, Flynn announced the lawsuit, saying:
“I have gone back into the Department of Justice to let them know, to put them on notice, that I am going to sue these people — I don’t give a crap about the money … to let them know I’m not going to sit on my laurels, and do ‘woe is me,’ and wring my hands.”
Flynn continued: “We are going to go after these people. And we actually filed, very quietly, an intention to sue the Department of Justice, all of these people, from Jim Comey up to President Obama.”
Just the News reported:
Flynn is seeking damages for “lost past and future earnings/revenue, emotional distress, lost opportunity to be President’s National Security Advisor, significant restraints of personal liberty, attorney fees/expenses and court costs in defending against malicious prosecution, abuse of process, false arrest,” et al.
According to Flynn’s filing, “the Obama White House despised Flynn the most of all of President Trump’s appointees,” and that the DOJ’s prosecution was “goaded by political objectives, not a search for the truth or justice.”
Flynn’s filing asserted: “Beginning in July 2016, “the FBI began to express disdain for candidate Donald J. Trump and began to consider ways in which it could hamper Donald Trump as a candidate or as president, were he to win the 2016 election.”
The Department of Justice charged Flynn with lying to the FBI about a conversation he had with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. Flynn pled guilty to the charge on the advice of his first lawyer. Flynn sought new counsel as fresh evidence surfaced, withdrew his guilty plea, and was acquitted.
Evidence surfaced in May 2019 indicates FBI investigators were aware that Flynn did not lie to them during his interview. Despite this, they continued to press charges based on the DOJ’s misleading narrative.
After the government dropped charges against Flynn, the presiding judge refused to conclude the case and took the extremely questionable step of seeking outside legal advice on alternatives for extending legal proceedings, severely undermining public trust in the justice system.
Because the judge refused to dismiss the case, then-President Trump granted Flynn a full pardon.

In the filing, Flynn’s attorneys maintain that:
During that meritless and unlawful investigation and prosecution, Flynn was falsely and maliciously painted by the conspirators as a traitor to his nation who acted in concert with a foreign power, and the SCO even threatened Flynn’s son with prosecution unless Flynn were to plead guilty. The federal government’s targeting of a citizen for baseless criminal prosecution and eliciting a plea bargain through threatening of family members is outrageous conduct of the highest order. The fact that it was orchestrated and carried out at the highest levels of the FBI, DOJ and White House makes it all the more outrageous.
Flynn told the Western Journal in December 2020:
“We do not want a world governed by tyrants whom no one has elected and who want to have power in order to destroy us.
“We understand what their plan is: to eliminate dissent, subdue any criticism, and outlaw those who do not submit unconditionally to the dictatorship of the ‘new world order.’
“Let’s not forget that by the crimes they have committed,” he added, “they have violated our laws; they have betrayed our nation and their oath to serve our country, their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”
