Entrapment. Obama Knew?

Entrapment is an old game...as old as the human race.

Sunday we learned that Michael Flynn, a former adviser to President Trump, was set up by the FBI, deceived, then charged.

We also learned that then-President Obama "absolutely" knew what was going on.

All of us face a form of entrapment every day...presented by the "father of lies."

Be informed. And be vigilant. And discerning.

Michael Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell spoke in no uncertain terms on television Sunday about former President Obama's role in the effort to entrap Flynn, President Trump's former national security adviser.

And for good reason.

Last week, the Department of Justice dropped the case against Flynn after documents showed the FBI plotted to entrap him on perjury charges.

You will recall that Flynn was included in the press and the Democrat's efforts to bring down President Trump because he "colluded with Russia."

As always, lies and deception ultimately collapse under the light of truth. And there are always consequences.

The entrapment.

After they had exhausted all leads to "Russian collusion," FBI elites decided to set Flynn up and get him on an unrelated charge---like perjury, or something. They had to get Flynn, or someone like him, in order to get Trump.

Attorney Sidney Powell now has documentation---and so does the press, that FBI agents made it appear to be an informal, friendly meeting with Flynn, giving him no impression that his responses could be used against him a little later.

Powell, based on documents now available, says,
“These agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off that he was even the person being investigated, In fact, according to Comey's testimony that's attached to the exhibits they filed in the motion to dismiss, they just simply said, we'd like to send a couple agents by to talk to you."
She says,
"And, of course, General Flynn said sure. And he saw them as allies. They encouraged him to stay that way. They deliberately did not tell him about 1001 [the statute that makes it a federal felony to lie to agents] because they didn't want to trigger the slightest suspicion in his mind that he was being investigated or should be concerned about anything.”

They proceeded to ask Flynn a question that they knew the answer to but was unrelated in any direct way to the case, and an unguarded Flynn didn't remember he had given a conflicting answer weeks before.

They had him.

Did Obama really know about all this?

Apparently, he did. In fact, it's very apparent that he did.

In a January 5, 2017, meeting, days before Obama would vacate the Oval Office and Trump would move in, top-level officials Sally Yates, Jim Comey, James Clapper, and John Brennan met with President Obama in the Oval Office. They were briefing Obama on the progress of the Flynn matter, and likely the Russian dossier matter.

At the briefing on the 5th, Sally Yates was stunned because Obama mentioned to her, out of the blue, about the call and the transcript of the call that was supposed to be what the investigation on Flynn was all about in the first place. Yates knew nothing about it because Comey had decided not to tell her about it, because Comey didn't want to brief DOJ about it at that time.

The next day, Comey was sent to brief President Trump about the salacious parts of the dossier, "to set the news hook for BuzzFeed and CNN to run with the dossier they already knew was a lie."

The media then reported on it. Peter Strzok is watching the CNN report on it, so on that basis, he uses the lie about the dossier as a pretext to go and interview some people.

This is how a lie is given life. It's how a $50 million dollar investigation against political enemies is born using a lie as the pretext.

Fox News asked Flynn's attorney Sydney Powell, Sunday, if she "thinks this went all the way to the top, to President Obama?"

Her response?


President Trump saw the interview on Fox and tweeted:
"The biggest political crime in American history, by far!", calling it "Obamagate" and linking it to a post that claims Obama used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration.

This is the profile of how deception works.

Our first look at deception happened with the first two people God created. It's recorded in Genesis chapter 3---it's called the "Fall of Man."

Satan questioned God's integrity. "Surely, He will not..." "You won't really die." God doesn't want you to be as smart as He is.

Once deceived, the woman finds someone else she can deceive. It always feels better if others are also doing it.

When caught and questioned by God, Adam blames Eve. Eve then blames the serpent and the serpent is cursed forever. And Adam and Eve are denied God's original plan for their lives.

This is why Jesus would later describe Satan as a "roaring lion" walking about "seeking whom he may devour."

He's also described as pretending to be an angel of light, so he may deceive many.

Much more will come out on the Flynn, Russian dossier lies over the next few weeks. US A/G William Barr, I believe, will bring consequences to bear for the wrongdoing, because he's a man of the law.

But deception will continue.

Romans chapter one begins with an indictment against those who "suppress the truth in unrighteousness" even though they know about God because He is revealed everywhere. The chapter continues, as you likely know, to describe the behavior of those who suppress the truth---behavior that we now call "rights" and have written laws to protect.

And laws to punish those who disagree and those who refuse to celebrate the behavior.

Paul writes this to the Church:
"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ" (Colossians 2:8).

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
