Trump continues to down play Flynn and his administration's roll in collaborating with Russia.

But Flynn was just recently caught in a potential lie to the FBI where he first said he didn't speak with the Russian Ambassador and now he says he has spoke with the Russian Ambassador and that he may have talked about US sanctions.

Here's the crazy part about this administration. They don't think the rules apply to them and make stuff up as they go (Trump's press conference today was an example of the BS he spouts).

The problem here is that it appears Flynn lied to the FBI when they interviewed him. What this could turn out is a Felony charge against Flynn.

Is that why Flynn resigned and Trump accepted it because the rules dont apply?

Cool. We can charge him with lying to the FBI right after we charge Hillary Clinton, the Queen of Lies.

As far as Trump is concerned, this is all classified information, and should never have leaked.

The only problem Trump has, is that he began "classified activities" before he was inaugurated.

Had he waited until the 20th, then Flynn would have no problem, and a lie to the FBI would have been authorized, since it involved revealing classified information that the FBI was not entitled to know.

Still, if the FBI goes after Flynn for the lie about activities while he was just a private citizen, Trump will simply use his power to pardon Flynn, so again, nothing will come of this.

Only by going after The Donald himself, can the FBI get any resolution on the matter. And the FBI can't do that, since Trump is their boss, so it's then up to congress to move to impeach the president. But, the congress is full of Republicans, and so again, that will never happen.

It's stale mate.

The real story:

Flynn was found out to be a left-over Obama operative.

He got caught internally.

There will be a dozen more soon.

Nice try op.



The FBI in late December reviewed intercepts of communications between the Russian ambassador to the United States and retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn — national security adviser to then-President-elect Trump — but has not found any evidence of wrongdoing or illicit ties to the Russian government, U.S. officials said.

So they are now going to hang him out to dry the same way they caught Scooter Libby?

Perjury because he said one thing to one person and another to this person, but what they were actually going after they couldn't nail anyone on ... then the press runs with the original crime as though it was the offense all along?

That's not the issue. The issue is that he appears to have lied to the FBI when interviewed. That's a felony. If I remember correctly, Patreaus lied to the FBI and they charged him for it which resulted in a plea bargain between the US Govt. and Patreaus.

Yep. They're going to Scooter Libby him so they can keep the scandal going, but the press will create the impression it was for something else.

no he's not. Flynn will be working with the administration in an unofficial matter.

Flynn knew the goods on the Iran deal. Major threat.

I'm sure over time people will find plenty of examples of previous transition admins meeting with foreign leaders.

And they are different than any other past administration ? They've ALL lied .. politicians lie and cover up truth all the time. Not fair to single this one out like it's some new outrageous anomaly in the White House.

Interesting possibility indeed.

I hope you are right.

I'm not going to make any determination until I find out what Moby or Katy Perry has to say about this.
