I get that. But if he's not yet working in office how can he be working on behalf of the government?

Why isn't this just another conversation like any other?


Because, while he is not part of the government, he is holding himself out as if he is (call it impersonating a government official, if you like) and discussing the lifting of sanctions, which only the government can do.

If you impersonate a police officer, or impersonate an FBI agent, or impersonate any other government official, that's an illegal act.

Moreover, because he is assuring the Russians that they'll lift sanctions, this immediately contradicts and reduced the effect of the sanctions that the actual government had imposed.

The sanctions were imposed to be a punitive response to hacking, for example, and here was an incoming candidate for official position indicating that they could be short lived sanctions, and as a result Putin decides not to retaliate against Obama's sanctions, but to wait and see.

The US didn't want Putin to wait and see. They wanted the sanctions to have it's full effect.

Instead, the incoming administration, acting like it was already in government, began to undo the actions of the sitting government, before they had the authority by law to do so.

It was as if they inaugurated themselves, before 20th Jan.

He's made some comments.

In the "old days", before Bush, you didn't see that.


The US has never seen a President like Trump.

The "Old Days" do not apply...

Breaking news.
Ethics office recommends investigation into Aide Conway.

What's that sound?

A crumbling administration I think.


Jesus H Christmas you're so hard on America failing!

Just some notes..

The conversation Flynn had did not center on Crimea...It centered on the Obama Administration evicting 30 plus spies from compounds in FL and MD.

Also...Flynn as Chief Security Advisor to the President Elect, was privy to the heads up briefing that President elect Trump was given pre-raid/eviction of those compounds.


Trump adviser had five calls with Russian envoy on day of sanctions: sources

www.reuters.com...

THIS was the LIE he told VP Pence and Pence's office put out the false statement

“They did not discuss anything having to do with the United States’ decision to expel diplomats or impose censure against Russia,” Mr. Pence said on the CBS News program “Face the Nation.”
www.nytimes.com...

He tipped them off...

THAT is why this much bigger than policy interference and why the intelligence community refused to let it slide...

No doubt Trump (having been told about the call transcripts a month ago) thought he would be able to cow the intelligence community by now and could have covered it up...but Trump is struggling just to keep his WH staff on the same page, let alone the intelligence community...Its a # show start to finish.

This is just the spiritual law at work.

If you show others mercy, you receive mercy.

If you're hard on others, the judgement on you is hard in return.



Judge not, that ye be not judged. -- KJV, Matthew 7:1

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. -- KJV, Matthew 7:2


So, since Trump has taken the stand that the Law must absolutely be obeyed, and applied this policy to the undocumented, and to Muslims from the middle east, etc.., without consideration of the hardships of these folks, he will be held to the same standard, and must himself follow the law without any relaxation in it's application, nor mercy nor forgiveness for misunderstandings and mistakes.

That's just the universal law, that is above all man made laws.

And that is precisely why she is such a danger to the Trump WH. His staff now see that there is no loyalty and have gone into self preservation mode.

No it wasn't a lot of people that knew about that. Certainly not enough to cost her an election. .

Russia aided trump by releasing the emails.
The republicans kept the conversation about a server front and center. That helped trump.
Then she's cleared, then it's opened again, FBI condemning her publicly while saying but we didn't find anything prosecutable. It was all just a bit too much. Nothing that occurred should have prevented her from winning but to some folks mostly those last undecideds it was just overload. The last eleven days before election day killed it for her.
Anyway another time for this convo.
This threads about what's going on with Mike Flynn.
I'd love to debate the issue in another thread. Please pm me but don't respond to this post here.

I don't think Russia hacked DNC. That would be too easy. If they did it, they would have hired an American to do it so it does not trace to them. And I don't see the French complaining about Russia hacking. Americans need to grow up and stop whining.

No I love America. That's why I want this (snipped by me) gone.
Everything that gets us closer to that is a victory.
He is the failure here.
