So right now, we have nothing that really says anything of the magnitude that left wants to imagine.

Unless there is a whole lot that we don't know about that is being firmly kept under wraps, there is not much there.

Now this should be interesting.



ABC News’ @BrianRoss reports that Flynn is prepared to testify President Trump directed him to make contact with Russians


Yeah its spin to try and portray this as something its not.

All transitions make contact with foreign governments before they take the reigns on inauguration day. It is called transition for a reason.

Exactly. Trump was the president-elect. It damn sure was his business to contact foreign governments. The only question in my mind is why Flynn would lie about what seems like a very minor & inconsequential matter: a discussion concerning Russia's reaction to sanctions.


I am wondering if the lie has to do with a difference between national security advisor and lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

The Senate tried that same bs with AG Sessions. Specifically asking about his contact with Russians during the election as a surrogate and then claiming Sessions lied when he didnt disclose his meetings as a sitting US Senator.

There is a difference and in the legal realm it is an important one.

Correct.

Flynn has admitted to lying to the FBI.

Until all details are released there really is nothing speculation.

As for being more it would suggest Flynn has provided info that gets the next higher fish. That cooperation is usually noted as part of a plea deal so the person can be prosecuted for those crimes should they fail to honor the agreement.

Repeating Russia, collusion, election tampering and Trump as often as possible even though it was false.


Repeating things does not take an admin down.



You can see it in this thread with certain members invoking Trump when he has nothing to do with Flynn lying to the FBI.


Does invoking Trump take down an admin?



They did the same thing with Manafort and the other 2 guys who were indicted. All crimes there took place almost a decade ago yet they rep3eat trumps name as often as possible.


Does that take down the admin?



Just like repeating Trump and Russia collusion as often as they can... and Democrats calling for impeachment with nothing other than they dont like Trump.


Was "we don't like Trump" part of any articles of impeachment?

Unless...that is why we should wait this out.

People saying there is nothing there are also just as illogical at this point.

So a bad apple tried to get into an Administration, big deal, especially when Trump got rid of him for lying to his VP.

Obama's Administration was full of Muslim Brotherhood and he never discovered them, he never fired them, and nobody was looking for them. Hillary had Huma, she was acceptable lol.

This is one big joke.

Trump told Flynn to plea this out today to distract from the tax reform bill!

The nsa/cia/ whoever would be monitoring the russian and there is no problem with that. The problem comes when without a crime or a threat to national security the american citizen is unmasked.
The bigger problem comes when illegally obtained intelligence is given to the fbi to manufacture a charge of lying to the fbi.
If the fbi does not have this intelligence how can they prove Flynn lied?
Another problem comes when this intelligence info was leaked to the nyt and wapo.

I really wonder if Mueller understands the can of worms he opened here.
Obama "warning" trump about flynn only makes this worse. Was obama spying on his own government officials?



You can be sure Mueller understands this. The optics are heavily discussed before anything is made public.

Apparently Jared indictments to follow. He knows and Mueller knows he knows....

Then Stone....I wouldn't expect any loyalty from that scumbag...believe me.

Mueller is going to squeeze every bit of covfefe out of Trumps inner circle.

I am sure this has been pointed out but....

But this is about as bad as it gets for Trump in light of what happened we th comey. Trump told him to back off the Flynn investigation and now Flynn as admitted to being guilty.

I have said it before but I think Flynn is going to tell the investigators everything and trump is going to go down

For some one claiming to not care if Trump goes down, you're spending an inordinate amount of time deflecting & defending.

Nobody has addressed my question: Flynn contacted the Russian ambassador. So what? What law is that supposed to be breaking?


No law was broken by talking to Russians.

Lying to the FBI about meeting / contacts with Russians is the crime.


Technically, that's not true. Subverting the foreign policy of the sitting President would be a violation of the Logan Act and that's exactly what happened.

That said, only two people have ever been prosecuted under the Logan Act in its more than two century existence and nobody has been convicted so it's pretty toothless and it's singular purpose seems to be making political claims of criminal malfeasance.

And there's the rub. Let's say Mueller tries to claim Trump violated this act. Given what you just explained, it's basically the equivalent of trying to bust Trump for stepping on sidewalk cracks. Republicans will (correctly) interpret it as a tacit admission that Mueller's investigation turned up nothing of substance, so he's trying to nail Trump on technical violations for something that any normal person doesn't care about.

Then why should the left lie about it then by repeating those catchwords in an effort to create a false impression?

Pushing impeachment for a non existent law violation is the intentional act to undermine and remove this administration.

If you are going to act intentionally stupid why bother responding?

It is an effort to delegitimize Trump's Presidency via false accusations all the while lying about the facts surrounding it.

Since impeachment is a political question and not a criminal one yes, they can introduce article of impeachment because they dont like trump. The asshat democrat, Green. from Texas is a prime example.. The asshat Maxine Waters is another example.

The left is lying when they claim russia changed the outcome of the election.

Why would the left do all this if their goal / intent is not to bring down Trumps administration and remove him from office.Please exercise common sense in your answer. I am done with willful ignorance and word games.

1. American citizens absolutely ARE fair targets where matters of national security are concerned. Flynn was unmasked because it was necessary to fully understand the conversation. It's perfectly legal.

You are correct so where is the FISA warrant on Flynn then? As he is an american citizen to legally spy on him a FISA warrant is needed.
When Flynn had his conversation, no crime was committed. To pass on intelligence gathered on an american citizen when no crime is committed is illegal.
While Flynns conversation may have been unmasked to "understand" the intelligence, when no crime was committed to pass that intelligence on is illegal.
The nsa does not get to collect EVERYTHING only to have the fbi use it at a later date to manufacture a false statement charge.



2. Mueller has admitted no such thing. The American IC was monitoring one of Russia's biggest spies talking to another individual who happened to be Flynn. They weren't spying on the incoming opposition party. That's just partisan BS.

By charging Flynn for making false statements that is EXACTLY what Mueller has admitted. Mueller has proof that Flynn lied. Where did that proof come from? The intelligence info was leaked to the nyt and wapo, and one of the former administrations people was stupid enough to admit leaving "bread crumbs". That is illegal.

Question -
What is trump going down for?

instructing a transition member of his admin to speak with several countries over an upcoming UN vote?

What I'm actually doing is trying to get you guys to face reality. So far there's no indication Trump will be charged with anything. If he is, so be it. Right now there's no reason to think that though. You can hold out your hopes all you want.

The tax bill is expected to pass now. I expect some Trump tweet-bombs about fake news. MSM is trying to find a crumb that leads to Trump, but all they have is still UNComfirmed sources and hear-say.
