Michael Flynn charged with lying to FBI
« on: December 01, 2017, 07:31:42 AM »
Big whoop! Nothing to see here, Trump canned him for this very reason.
But expect to see the LSM make it out to be more than it is.

Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, was fired by the White House in February after it was revealed he misled Vice President Mike Pence about his communications Kislyak. The Department of Justice had warned the White House that Flynn could be blackmailed because he had not fully disclosed multiple contacts and payments from foreign entities, including Russia, before joining the administration.

Would you tell the FBI under Comey the truth?.....I damn sure wouldn't.

Hopefully Trump will pardon him.

Clinton / Koskinen / Brennan / Clapper / Comey / McCabe / Rice / Powers / et al ........... lied ~ 100 times under oath, and to the FBI ............ but "they didn't mean to"..... just forget about it.

Flynn tells a couple of dumbass white lies to the FBI ..... they come down on him hardcore.

F these idiots.  The FBI still exists primarily as a unit that helps dems and screws GOP / conservatives.

1 year in Trump should be doing something about this.  Tillerson and Sessions need to go, and some clean-house types need to take their place.  I guess now that the Mulvaney thing has been shown to be Trump's "no confirmation" tactic ..... maybe he can use this to put Mattis in the FBI, lol.  Rumors of Pompeo taking SOS....

I just read this and have been skimming the news.  They're doing a triple somersault into an empty pool from the high-dive hoping this is a negative for Trump.

Everything I take from the story is this is a done deal and Mueller wants to be done with this.

Yeah, that's why I posted it as a "Nothing to see here" because all the nets are touting this as if somehow Trump is to be blamed.
But it appears that the Steinle murder is stealing their thunder.

The MSM is trying to make a big deal out of Flynn contacting the Russians AFTER the election. Little mention other countries were also contacted. Nowhere to close to collusion. This pissed off Obama as he was still in office. TS.

Amazing ! Big Whopp and the Air is GONE. Lying to the FBI has nothing to show any type of collusion with TRUMP and Russia at all. He lied before and NOW he is a Saint because it might be a negative against TRUMP? Big Nothing Burger. Hell JEFFIE might even be able to win this one, well that is a strech! :lol:

Here is an example of my above post. All the contact happened after the election. The article makes no reference to collusion.

I hope Flynn continues to work with the FBI.  He knows a lot of shenanigans that happened under Hussein.

The media may cause a big problem though. The tax bill was on the cusp of being passed from what I could tell from reports - something that I didn't think could happen. Now the Flynn news is taking center stage and attention away from the tax bill vote. I just hope it doesn't derail the tax bill because it would be good progress for this administration and actually valuable in many ways.

I don't understand Washington at all - in reality the Flynn news shouldn't affect the tax bill. But even Fox News is giving unspoken / indirect / general credibility to Russian collusion now - pouring blood in the water themselves. I get why most of the LSM does it - they hate Trump. But this is strange behavior from Fox. A strange stew of happenings. 

From a conspiracy viewpoint, the timing of the Flynn news and release is too poignant. You've got to wonder if the Dims didn't orchestrate this somehow to try and derail the vote on the tax bill. Like I said, a wild conspiracy theory with no support, but the Flynn news is having an affect as if they did. This is so far out that I don't believe the Dims are behind it. And if they are, then they have my congratulations ... they exerted a level of control beyond what I thought was possible.

Is it normal for presidential candidates to insert themselves into global events by dialing up heads of state? In fact, Obama did pretty much the same thing — multiple times, no less — as a candidate during the 2008 campaign.

Obama, like Romney, embarked on a foreign trip as a candidate, meeting face-to-face with leaders such as Afghan President Hamid Karzai, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (headline: "Obama Talks Tough About Iran During Visit to Israel").

Then, after hostilities erupted between Georgia and Russia in August 2008, both Obama and Republican challenger John McCain phoned Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, while condemning Russia for violating Georgia’s sovereignty.

How in the name of gravy do you collude with the Russians to throw the election if you contact the Russians after the election?
