KT McFarlane: Mueller's Angry Democrats Put Me Through "Hell" and Demanded I Admit to a Crime That Hadn't Happened or Claim That Innocent People Had Committed Crimes
Plus: Trump Rally!

The tree of liberty is getting mighty thirsty.

Longtime Republican politico K.T. McFarland said in a radio interview Wednesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team pressured her for "20, 30, 40 hours of hell" to either cop a plea or implicate other Trump associates in crimes, even though she didn’t think she or they did anything wrong.

McFarland, who served a four-month stint under Trump’s short-lived national security adviser Michael Flynn, was ensnared in Mueller’s dragnet after leaving the administration in May 2017.

She described the "trauma" she experienced at the hands of Mueller’s interrogators in November of 2017, during an interview on WMAL radio in Washington DC.


"When the Mueller people came knocking at my door, they started quizzing me on stuff that I didn’t have access to and didn’t remember 100 percent accurately, and it allowed them to say, 'well you must be lying then,'"McFarland told WMAL hosts Vince Coglianese and Mary Walter.

Note she didn't have access to her White House files and notes and therefore could not refresh her own recollection.

Also recall that James Comey refused to accept a temporary reinstatement of his security clearance so that he could answer questions -- he both refused to answer questions, claiming he didn't remember, and then further refused to look at his own records and notes to jog his memory.

No charges for Comey, though!

Walter asked McFarland why she wasn’t in the same position as Flynn, who ended up pleading guilty to a crime he didn’t commit (after Mueller threatened to bring criminal charges against his son). She replied: "because I didn't break."

"They gave me the distinct impression after... 20, 30, 40 hours of hell that they wanted me to either plead guilty to a crime I didn't feel I committed, or to talk about other people having done things that I didn’t think they had done," she explained.

Plus: Trump rally! Maybe he'll talk about the debate and when I say "maybe" I mean definitely.
