I guess he intended to register but in the excitement of being in the presence of the Orange king he just forgot.
Is that what you mean?

Well, the new standard set by Democrats is that as long as he didn't INTEND to break the law it is okay. This is a non-issue. Thanks Hillary.


In all seriousness, if flynn broke the law I hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
That said, this is the actual legacy of the obama administration. By refusing to hold his administration accountable(atf,irs,sos) we get public servants like flynn.

How can you sit there with a straight face and blame Obama for Flynn? Obama fired Flynn originally and wanted nothing to do with him because he was shady. Trump was the jackass who brought him back into the world of politics.

Cummings noted that the security clearance states that knowingly leaving off payments from foreign governments is a felony punishable with up to five years in prison.

Ok... Not sure what you are trying to prove there. It still isn't a perjury case.

Were the people from fast and furious prosecuted?
Were the people from the irs prosecuted?
Was the sos held accountable?
Had the big o's doj done its job, civil servants may have actually taken government paperwork seriously. People like flynn are what you get from a LACK of accountability.

you can't prosecute someone if they do not understand how to fill out the paperwork...see clinton, hillary rodham

No. Flynn is what happens when Trump hires people based off of loyalty and not experience or because they are fit for the job. You are reaching super hard trying to blame this on Obama just because your pet controversies from the Obama admin didn't turn out with legal indictments.

Stop blaming Obama for Trump's pick. It isn't becoming at all and bleeds of desperation.

Perjury is a case where you knowingly lie under oath. It is a subjective crime to charge with because it is REALLY hard to prove someone knowingly lied under oath.

Flynn failed to do something he is legally required to do. Whether this was knowingly or unknowingly there is no excuse for ignorance of the law here. It is NOT hard to prove someone failed to do something. All you do is ask them to produce the documentation or evidence saying they did. If it doesn't exist then it didn't happen (according to the law).

This an apples to oranges situation with the Hillary investigation.

not at all. If you, lets say have lots of top secret data on an unsecured server, and you send some of it out to people who have no clearance, as long as you A. are a Clinton, and B. didn't "intend" to break the law, you are free to use the "my bad" defense which carries no penalties at all. See, it's all about "intent"........Oh and the last name.

Yeah. And how did that turn out? Bill got off even when they had him dead to rights. Perjury is a REALLY hard crime to get to stick.

he was impeached over it. But as they say, if your last name is Clinton, you can do just about anything, and it's cool.

Tell that to Chaffetz and the other members of the House who are convinced he broke the law. I don't need to prove #. I just need to sit back and watch what happens.

More like trying to get someone criminally over lying about receiving head is just pure partisanship. The Republicans at the time may have had Bill being weaselly, but pursuing the crime in the first place was just the height of arrogance and partisan brinkmanship.

I don't need to prove #.

No you do not; not even in threads YOU author.
Way to boost your credibility.
You are so willfully ignorant you won't even read the law, or your own story. Cummings even stated "knowingly".



Making false statements (18 U.S.C. § 1001) is the common name for the United States federal crime laid out in Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code, which generally prohibits knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements, or concealing information, in "any matter within the jurisdiction" of the federal government of the United States, even by mere denial[clarification needed].[1] A number of notable people have been convicted under the section, including Martha Stewart,[2] Rod Blagojevich,[3] Scooter Libby,[4] Bernard Madoff,[5] and Jeffrey Skilling.[6] This statute is used in many contexts. Most commonly, prosecutors use this statute to reach cover-up crimes such as perjury, false declarations, and obstruction of justice and government fraud cases

knowingly and willfully
good luck proving that, who am I kidding you don't wish to prove anything, you only wanted to crap on trump

Fun fact: This is a breaking news thread located in the breaking political news forum. I'm just reporting on something that happened recently. What is there to prove exactly? It's not like Chaffetz released the evidence he's been looking at to make this claim.

Even if there was a problem with what flynn did guess what the punishment is krazy?????

hosted.ap.org...


Under the guidelines, the Defense Department generally punishes retired military officers who fail to report foreign pay by withholding their retirement disbursements equal to the amount of the pay received.
