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.


That is the other side of the coin isn't it? When this is over, if Trump doesn't get charged with anything or it's just some silly technicality, #resisters are gonna be up the creek without a paddle. What are they gonna claim, that Mueller was a Russian agent? I think this is why Sessions recused himself and a special prosecutor got appointed. That way, when it was all over, nobody could complain that the investigation wasn't legit.

What the hell are these people gonna do when this is over?

that's my guess.

there's a good possibility that flynn caved because his son was implicated in some of his stuff and part of the deal was to keep his son in a safer position. so, going after one of trumps sons, or son in law, would put that kind of pressure on trump, possibly force him to resign.

One word, Huma.

She was handling the Secretary of State under Obama.

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.


You're right. Your post is one big joke.

Obama admin full of MB...


Jesus, the extreme Right Wing keep getting loonier.

Huma Abedin defended the Muslim Brotherhood on several occasions. At a minimum, she's an MB sympathizer.

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


What false impressions?

Collusion could be an issue. What matters is what form it may have come in, if at all.



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


Was a non-existent law part of any articles of impeachment?



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


You made the stupid claim. If you cannot back it up, not my problem.



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


Trump has delegitimized his own presidency. The Left did not put Trump and friends in this position. They did.



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.


Ok. So have they done so?



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


Who is saying that? I've seen some people say it had an affect, but not change the outcome entirely.



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.


It appears much of what you claim the Left is doing is either out-of-context or completely made up.



I am done with willful ignorance and word games.


Tired of being called-out for talking out of your ass?

This is just the beginning....

Mueller is going to squeeze every last drop of covfefe from Trumps inner circle.

If Flynn had any real damaging info on somebody, they would have granted him immunity, not a criminal plea.

Dropping the sanctions was one of the first things trump tried to do. Congress did everything they could to stop him and they succeeded.

Not necessarily. You don't know what they could have charged him with. This is a firm slap on the wrist, nothing more.
That implies that IF he has flipped for Mueller, the this was a good deal for him.

We won't really
Know till all the shoes drop though.

Did Flynn get an agreement not to prosecute his son....we'll never know. Plea deals can get complicated.

Trumps lawyer is still hoping for a prompt and reasonable conclusion to the probe. More whistling past the bone yard.

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


What are they imagining?



Huh?


You don't see all the posts here?
it's almost like some think Hillary will be installed as President.

That's pretty hypocritical, considering how he and Loretta Lynch conspired to obstruct justice on a certain airport tarmac.
