Did we expect anything

You just can't make this stuff up. Now there are those who believe Trump and Co. will be going to jail "for the rest of their lives". Forget the fact that just about no one in DC ever goes to jail.
On MSNBC's Morning Joe
As the "noose" of Robert Mueller's probe into the Trump team's contacts with Russia is "tightening," members of the administration are starting to understand they're going "to jail ... for the rest of their lives," MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said Tuesday.
"Knowing them, I think they're shocked that the noose is tightening," Brzezinski said. "I don't know if they were arrogant or incredibly un-self aware and really dumb about what the job was about, how important it was, and how under the microscope every move you made would be. I think they just thought they'd go in there and riff through it. And I think they're shocked that the noose is tightening and that people might go to jail."
"You're exactly right," her co-host and fiancé, Joe Scarborough, agreed.
"For the rest of their lives," Brzezinski added, perhaps hopefully.
For what exactly? If you can't see this sham of an investigation for what it is yet, you must be pretty blind. A year long investigation and all they have is a procedural violation. Lying to the FBI. And don't kid your self about how they are flipping Flynn to go after bigger fish. It doesn't work that way. When a prosecutor has a cooperator (Flynn) who was an accomplice in a major criminal scheme, the cooperator, (Flynn) is made to plead guilty to the scheme. This is critical because pleading guilty to the scheme proves the existence of a criminal conspiracy. Besides, the federal prosecuting guidelines are clear. They must go after the biggest readily provable charge. In this case it's a procedural offense, lying.
But fear not my hopeful liberal friends. There will be plenty more "leaks" designed to keep you all hopeful about the impeachment fantasy. So make sure you keep those pocket books open and donate as much as you can to the DNC. They need your money so they can get rid of Trump!
In the end, even if everything they say was true, it all boils down to this one question. Did he intend to do it?!?!
In the famous words of Hillary Clinton, At this point what difference does it make?
