Seems Benjamin Wittes is at his ‘Wittes’ end’ over the Justice Department dropping their case against Flynn.
Poor lil feller.
He’s grasping at so many straws. All the straws, in fact.
This is a really important piece from former Justice Department official Mary McCord, whose words Bill Barr twisted into a pretzel in order to justify dismissing the case against Gen. Flynn. https://t.co/Qkav46W9gD

He so badly wants to be right.
It would be funny if it weren’t so sad.
From the New York Times:
And perhaps more significant, it has no bearing on whether Mr. Flynn’s lies to the F.B.I. were material to the clear counterintelligence threat posed by the susceptible position Mr. Flynn put himself in when he told Mr. Pence and others in the new administration that he had not discussed the sanctions with Mr. Kislyak. The materiality is obvious.
In short, the report of my interview does not anywhere suggest that the F.B.I.’s interview of Mr. Flynn was unconstitutional, unlawful or not “tethered” to any legitimate counterintelligence purpose.
Byron York was good enough to point out the obvious to Wittes:
She makes a solid case that Flynn should not have been interviewed at all. https://t.co/EZB53bucvO
