(ConservativePeak.com)- After former President Barack Obama was implicated in the attempt by FBI officials to set up former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, former Vice President Joe Biden has been asked whether he knew anything about it. On Tuesday morning, told ABC’s Good Morning America that he did know what was going on…after previously saying he didn’t.
Speaking to George Stephanopoulos, Biden was forced to admit he knew what was going on. The presumptive Democratic presidential candidate can be heard sighing as Stephanopoulos quoted President Donald Trump, who said that investigation into Michael Flynn was the “biggest political crime in U.S. history.”
And before we get onto what Biden said, it’s important to explain why the president thinks that. The Department of Justice, upon seeing evidence that Flynn was set up by the FBI and encouraged to admit to something he didn’t do by prosecutors, chose to drop the case. President Barack Obama knew what was going on, former FBI Director James Comey knew what was going on, and Flynn’s life was destroyed in the process. And why? Because they wanted to make it look like President Trump’s campaign team and associated were colluding with Russia.
“So what did you know about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn and was there anything improper done,” the host asked Biden.
Biden then lied.
“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” before he started rattling off his campaign rhetoric about how President Trump is trying to use the issue as a “diversion” from the coronavirus pandemic.
Stephanopoulos knew his claims were untrue, prompting him to say, “I do want to press that…”
“You say you didn’t know anything about it, but you were reported to be at a January 5th, 2017, meeting where you and the president were briefed on the FBI’s plan to question Michael Flynn over those conversations he had with the Russian ambassador, Kislyak.”
Biden then seemed to (miraculously!) remember that he did know about it.
“No, I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted,” he said. “I’m sorry. I was aware that there was…that they had asked for an investigation. But that’s all I know about it and I don’t think anything else.”
Are you convinced? I’m not. Either Biden was forgetting something, again, or he was lying.
Towards the end of the interview, Biden got defensive and started attacking the president for focusing on the Flynn issue while a pandemic is going on. Someone who may have something to hide would probably say that…
