What a day! The Justice Department dropped it’s case against General Flynn and tons of once classified testimony was released by the House. There are several big stories here (Scroll down for the CBS interview with William Barr), but one that’s getting overlooked is the fact that Crowdstrike, the firm alleging that Russia hacked and stole the DNC emails, admitted in congressional testimony that it actually has no direct evidence Russia stole the DNC emails. Independent journalist, Aaron Mate (not a rightwinger), points out this may be why even the Mueller Report remained cagey about evidence that Russia actually was the source of the hacked emails.
This has been a day of vindication for those of us, right and left, calling the Russia narrative a big fat hoax.
Interesting admission in Crowdstrike CEO Shaun Henry's testimony. Henry is asked when "the Russians" exfiltrated the data from DNC.
Henry: "We did not have concrete evidence that the data was exfiltrated from the DNC, but we have indicators that it was exfiltrated." 🤔 pic.twitter.com/TyePqd6b5P
Anyone who works in IT will tell you, “Cyber-criminals could be operating from any part of the world and can remain untraceable because they can hide their IP addresses.”
I could spill a ton of digital ink over the General Flynn case getting dropped, but Tucker Carlson put it better than anyone in his segment tonight. This was clearly an FBI setup and no reasonable person can claim otherwise.

Attorney General William Barr interviewed after the Flynn case was dropped:
Another detail from the newly released congressional testimony: All of the big players in the Obama administration admitted under oath that they had no actual evidence of Russian collusion.
Fmr DNI Clapper: “I never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting/ conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election..That’s not to say that there weren’t concerns about the evidence we were seeing, anecdotal evidence"
