As news breaks Thursday that the Department of Justice has dropped all charges against former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn, a new documentary has been released purportedly showing how the FBI, led by disgraced director James Comey, attempted to overthrow the government under President Donald Trump.
The mini-documentary, titled, “American COUP: How James Comey and The Deep State Tried To Overthrow Our Republic,” explores Flynn’s past skirmishes with the establishment dating back to his service as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under the Obama administration.
Flynn’s belief that he was forced out of the DIA because of his hardline stance on Islamic terrorism is noted in the documentary, which pieces together the story line of Flynn’s persecution by the FBI using videos and commentary from legal experts, political figures, and Fynn and Comey themselves.
Comey’s own testimony that his agency deliberately misled Flynn about the nature of the interview conducted at the White House that led to Flynn’s removal from the administration is highlighted in the video, as is Senator Chuck Schumer’s sinister commentary on the case, “If you take on the intelligence community they have six ways from Sunday of gettin’ back at you.”
Charges against Flynn were dropped Thursday, several weeks after Flynn filed a motion to withdraw his guilty plea. Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, claims that Flynn’s original guilty plea was obtained through threats of legal prosecution of his son if he did not cooperate.
The documentary also features footage of General Flynn’s son speaking at the National File Emergency Free Speech Summit in February.
“I can tell you unequivocally that I was absolutely threatened with being indicted,” Michael Flynn Jr. said at the summit. “I had a father that absolutely fell on the sword to protect me from going through something that I would have had to put my then four-month-old [child] and wife through.”
“Something has got to happen before this election in November,” Flynn Jr. said. “I want to see people held accountable.”
