... she was questioned about a 90-minute period spent in the president's Mar-a-Lago Club in which she didn't have any recorded correspondence or conversation in her phone records. That's when, McFarland said, they asked her whether that was the time she met with Trump to get marching orders.
"I looked at them and I said, 'No, that was actually when I was having lunch with my husband and I put my cell phone away,' she recalled. "Look, they had absolutely targeted me for a perjury crime or to link Trump and until I got the best lawyer in the country to come along with me, they really thought they had me."
In addition, in the longer interview, she goes into the nature of the Deep State establishment and its attitude toward the subject population of this country.
To set the stage for the rest of this, McFarland was Deputy National Security Adviser from January 20, 2017 to about May 19, 2017--when the Mueller Witchhunt began. She had been brought in by Michael Flynn and then was bounced by Deep State operative McMaster. When she left, she of course left all official documentation and equipment behind--phones, etc. Mueller's thugs had all that, transcripts of emails, texts, etc., etc. She didn't. So:
“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.
“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.
The former Trump aide told the hosts that the Mueller interrogators didn’t come right out and say they wanted her to cop a plea, but that “was the impression they conveyed.”
“At one point, I turned to my lawyer and said, ‘just tell me what they want me to say and I’ll say it!’” she recalled.
McFarland told the hosts that she just wanted the ordeal—which cost her hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees—to be over with.
“My husband, God bless him, said ‘you can’t do that. Even if we go bankrupt,” she continued. So McFarland decided to stand her ground.
“I finally said, no, you’re going to have to charge me with a crime,” she said. “At that point, they went away because I couldn’t give them what they needed to spin their web. ...
“This tool, which we had given the intelligence community—which is a good thing for them to have if they’re tracking down mass murderers and terrorists—they were using it for political purposes to go after political enemies,” McFarland lamented.
After her “time in the wilderness,” she said she realized that the country was going through a “revolution” that was way bigger than the anti-Trump Washington establishment.
“They’re a certain group of people who have gotten used to governing and they think it is their divine right,” she explained. “And even if the American voter votes for someone who wants to get rid of them or change their policies, they feel they have the patriotic duty to overrule election results.”
Because of these unanswerable bureaucrats, the United States is now in “a very dangerous place,” McFarland warned.
“We Americans have the constitutional right to have political revolutions at the ballot box and we go through this every four years because government by its nature, digs in, becomes status-quo,” she explained. “They want to protect their privileges and policies and so whenever somebody comes along and says, ‘lets do something differently,’ they reisist, they fight.”
She described this struggle as “a fight between the governed and the people who are doing the governing” and declared: “We the people think we should be in charge.”
McFarland said this power-hungry Washington establishment was made up of “permanent, professional politicians at the administrative state” and people in the bureaucratic state “who can’t be fired from government,” as well as “think tanks, the mainstream media.”
“They’re all part of the same group and they think they’re the ones in charge,” she said.
