Figures like Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen were all entrapped in a conspiracy by federal agents seeking to overthrow the duly elected president of the United States. The saga has led to calls in conservative publications to break up the FBI and investigate the extent of their abuses against Americans whose political views they do not approve of.
Fortunately for Flynn, Cohen, and likely Stone, they are now being provided redress. The Department of Justice's decision to drop the Flynn case is welcome. Michael Cohen and Manafort have been released from prison and will be spending the rest of their sentences under house arrest. Roger Stone, while still battling in court, will likely figure a way out.
But not all people being railroaded and tortured in solitary confinement by the FBI can count the president of the United States as a personal friend.
