Yes mike Flynn was caught telling the Russian ambassador TRUMP would drop sanctions!!!
"Flynn talked about sanctions, but no specific promises were made. Flynn was speaking more in general 'maybe we'll take a look at this going forward' terms."
You should see the way Fox News (Trump TV) Sunday just spent the whole episode ripping trump to pieces, and that is his fan club lol...
Previous to the last 3 days and since he won the election it has been Breitbart TV...
They didn't even flip on him until after he lied to hannity and said there were only 5 people in the room.
Once it leaked there was a Russian counter intelligence agent there , how do you defend it honestly in any way other than.
"Hillary is so bad I don't care"??
Even the Fox News gurus are saying negotiating behind the kremlins back IS ILLEGAL IN RUSSIA.. and these lobbyists know that.
Appearently the powers that be say everyone in that room was risking EVERYTHING with Russia if they didn't have permission to approach the trump people.
I don't actually know anything personally about Russian politics, but it makes sense..
I would make it illegal for people to pretend they were foreign agents in other countries.

And when did he say that there were only five people? He infers six in the video.
What came out later is the lobbyist you think is a Russian intel guy and who is the eighth?
Ms. Veselnitskaya was formerly married to a former deputy transportation minister of the Moscow region, and her clients include state-owned businesses and a senior government official’s son, whose company was under investigation in the United States at the time of the meeting. Her activities and associations had previously drawn the attention of the F.B.I., according to a former senior law enforcement official.
WASHINGTON—The Russian lawyer whom Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort met last year with the hopes of receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton says she talked with the office of Russia’s top prosecutor while waging a campaign against a U.S. sanctions law and the hedge-fund manager who backed it.

Turns out the [people who met with Trump jr. also met with Democrats.
Hannity Just EXPOSED Something HUGE About Obama Administration (John Kerry, Loretta Lynch, others)
“I am in shock. I’m just an ordinary person. A regional prosecutor is not the Kremlin.
“This is just nonsense.
“You don’t know what to do with your Trump so you are making up stories. That isn’t right. It’s not right to play with people’s lives like this. I have four children. One turned 8 today but I’ve been here all day. [The interview took place at the NBC office in Moscow.] Because someone in America really wants to overthrow their president. Overthrow him, I don’t give a damn. Who gave you the right to come up with this stuff?
“I did not have an assignment from the Kremlin, there were no orders from the government.”
“I didn’t know that Trump would be elected, I didn’t come to them as political candidates, I didn’t come to them to see the son of the possible future president. I came to him as a person who has support in the Republican Party, and because my friend said you can go see him, he’ll let you see him. I’m far from politics, I went to him [Trump Jr.], I went to the Jewish community, because my client is Jewish, I said please get your Congress involved, talk to your congressmen [about repealing the Magnitsky law].
“I do not represent the government. I am a private citizen.”
“I think it was someone who wanted to look like they were a big shot, Goldstone. I think he said he had something very important from the Kremlin to make it look like he is a big deal.”
“We sat and talked to each other for a few minutes and it was clear we were talking about two different things.”
