The crimes General Flynn was accused of were so serious that they are the reason he's yet to be sentenced. The judge keeps sending him back to
cooperate more/better, in exchange for his deal, because he hasn't redeemed himself enough to deserve the deal he cut, in the judge's
Really? what oh so serious crimes were those again?
Oh, right - 2 horrible, unfathomable crimes...
One, lying to the FBI about the contents of a conversation he had with the Russian Ambassador, and even after being denied legal counsel by an illegal
subversive act committed by the Director of the FBI, the agents who were sent to interview him did not believe that he was lying.
Two, failing to register as a foreign agent while doing some consulting work for Turkey. This is the only one that could have any real meat to it, but
- does it? It is not nearly as cut and dried as some would have you believe. I read enough to understand that there is plenty of room to give General
Flynn the benefit of the doubt that he didn't realize until after the fact that he should have registered, and once he did, he did.
In the end, Mueller recommended he get 'the low end' of the potential sentence in exchange for all of his 'assistance'.
So, what is the punishment for his 'oh so serious crimes'? Zero to 6 months in jail. So the low end would be no jail time - but the maximum, even if
Flynn had not cooperated, would have been 6 months.
Would you like me to compare this to the potential penalties Hillary is facing for her very real and very serious crimes? She is looking at many
multiples of 10 years for each offense, and there were... many.
So, no, Flynn's alleged crimes were not so serious after all.
