CBS’s Catherine Herridge just dropped the transcript summaries of the call between Gen. Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak that there was all the controversy over that resulted in Flynn getting attention from the FBI and ultimately prosecuted for allegedly lying to them.

It’s even more ridiculous then you can imagine that there was any concern about this. In the words of President Donald Trump, this was a “perfect call.” It’s hard to imagine anything more innocuous.

You can read for yourself and draw your own conclusions, but it reads like a perfectly normal call of a transition team trying to set up first contacts, even Flynn telling Kislyak he should not go too far in responding to the the U.S. sanctions because we have a common enemy in the Middle East. Exactly what you would want him to say. There’s absolutely nothing in there that is at all questionable.

There were a few other brief calls on 12/23, 12/31, 1/12 and a voicemail, they also appear to have nothing of note, about setting up contacts.

You can read everything in bigger print here.

There was nothing that even remotely invoked the Logan Act. There was absolutely no criminal predicate to justify the interview or position they subsequently took on Flynn. Certainly not compared to the things the Obama officials like John Kerry have done since with Iran. This just adds further that this was all a frame-up to take out Flynn, as well as tar and harm the Trump administration.

No discussion of undermining sanctions, a false claim trotted out by those on the left.

Once again, declassification blows up all the lies spread by Democrats for the last three years.
