As Twitchy reported, we learned this spring from declassified documents that January 5, 2017, was a big day at the White House. There was an all-hands-on-deck meeting in the Oval Office including the usual suspects: FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director Joh Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and Vice President Joe Biden, among others.
We also learned that the day before the big meeting, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, along with FBI General Counsel James Baker, searched for the Logan Act statute, and notes say that Biden brought up using the Logan Act against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn the following day, even though it passed in 1799 and was only prosecuted twice, in 1802 and 1852. “I knew nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden later told George Stephanopoulos.
The Federalist’s Molly Hemingway reminds us that this is the four-year anniversary of that momentous meeting in the Oval Office.

An analysis of the timeline from early 2017 shows a clear pattern of behavior from the federal officials running the collusion operation against the Trump campaign. It also shows how essential media leaks were to their strategy to sideline key law enforcement and intelligence officials and cripple the ability of the incoming Trump administration to run the country.
This stunning operation was not just a typical battle between political foes, nor merely an example of media bias against political enemies. Instead, this entire operation was a deliberate and direct attack on the foundation of American governance. In light of the newly declassified documents released in recent days, it is clear that understanding what happened in that January 5 Oval Office meeting is essential to understanding the full scope and breadth of the corrupt operation against the Trump administration.
And now Biden is getting the old gang back together, including Susan Rice.

Treason can look pretty innocent.

Beautifully detailed and damning. My question to The Federalists top legal experts – what if anything can be put in place to prevent this nasty but apparently not illegal nefarious type of activity from people like Obama and his operatives in the future?

Would have loved to have that meeting recorded and leaked. Even more so, the meeting when they decided to go all in on "Operation Trump", (which was probably before he even rode down that elevator with FLOTUS).

We all knew what was happening as we saw it unfold in real time. This was a coup d'etat by the Obama admin and his intelligence services. We won't forget.

Wow- thanks for the reminder, Mollie. No mention of this treasonous plan on any media!! And now we know about the players put in place for the plan.

I'm okay with Trump trying to stymie Biden's presidency at every conceivable turn, as long as DJT leaves the White House.

Democrats have tried for four years to undermine the Constitution. How dare they say anything now about the fraud investigation.

The mainstream media didn’t touch any of this, but it all came out in declassified documents. And remember, Biden didn’t know anything about the plan to charge Flynn under the Logan Act.
