After weeks of Andrea Mitchell Reports gladly repeating Chinese Communist Party talking points, Mitchell and former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence and current MSNBC contributor Frank Figliuzzi declared without any evidence at all that Russian President Vladimir Putin had something to do with the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against former General Michael Flynn.
After Mitchell breathlessly summarized the “stunning” and “unprecedented” decision on Flynn, she saw something sinister in the Thursday phone call between President Trump and Putin. “Frank, first, all of the implications here, and the fact that he then called Vladimir Putin yesterday. She then asked Figliuzzi to, “Talk to me about your counterintelligence concerns here.”
Figliuzzi was certain that the phone call and the decision to drop the case were connected, “Yeah, I think they’re actually linked. The dismissal of charges against Flynn and conversation by the president with Vladimir Putin, stone cold adversary of the United States on the very same day, that’s not a coincidence.”
These folks are touched in the head, as Granddad would have put it.
