Former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has recently filed a $50 million lawsuit against the Justice Department and the FBI for “malicious prosecution” related to the widely pedaled Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
It was reported by American Faith News that this lawsuit was quietly filed by Flynn and names Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington D.C. and the Executive Office of the President. In the civil lawsuit, Flynn alleges that former President Barack Obama and the FBI had a feud against him that spurred their actions.
The lawsuit noted that, “Of all of President Trump’s appointees, the Obama White House hated Flynn the most.” The filing also noted possible interference by the FBI due to a series of irregularities listed in his case.
The filing continued saying, “As part of these efforts, the FBI began to target Flynn. Flynn was no stranger to the FBI and its leadership, many of whom considered Flynn to be a personal enemy of the FBI and the success of their own FBI careers.”
Compensation of the proposed civil suit are from, “Damages including but not limited to 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.”
Flynn’s civil suit against the FBI stems from their probe into him that was “the target of a politically motivated investigation and prosecution that had no merit when it began, no merit during its course, and no merit in the end when the charges were withdrawn by the DOJ and ultimately dismissed by the Court after Flynn received a full pardon,” according to the filing.
As the $50 million lawsuit begins it will be interesting to see how the FBI and other defendants named will respond to Flynn’s claims in the civil suit.
