Flynn pleads guilty to only one count of lying to FBI which means bad news to the White House

Former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn pled guilty to admitting to lying to the FBI. Here's the truth. Flynn did talk to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak about lifting the Obama sanctions placed on the Russians for interference in our election. Flynn obviously lied about that. This is now about Russia, President Trump. It was never a hoax as you put it. Now we have to find out if this was about paying the Russians back for assistance to the Trump campaign. As we know, Fynn's legal team has stopped working with the Trump legal team. That's a sign that Flynn may have flipped. And that could have happened months ago.

Note that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had Flynn plead to only one count. And before you say, "That's it?" Note that Flynn was an agent for the Turkish government and that he failed to report that. There's more we don't know about. Remember that Trump went to great effort to get fired FBI Director Comey to drop investigating Flynn. Something that I feel proud blogging about as I put the Trump-Comey meetings together. (My post.) Note that Trump has contact with Comey virtually every time that there was a Flynn event. And the point was to pressure Comey to let Flynn go. If Mueller could get Flynn for more, why didn't he? Because folks, he's cooperating. That's why Trump wants Comey to let go of Flynn. He knows too much.

This is all bad news for Trump. There's very few people higher than Flynn if he's cooperating. Hmm. Let's see. Vice President Pence. I haven't heard much about him so not much to say here. Son Donald Jr. Big time contact with Russians in June of 2016. Meeting with Russians to get dirt on Hillary Clinton with the knowledge that Russia was helping the campaign. And yeah, you may say these Russians were not connected with the Russian government. But they still wanted the help. It' s like robbing a bank and finding out that there's no money there. it's still illegal and an attempt. Next big fish. White House adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Remember he tried to set up a back channel with the Russians to defeat the FBI and CIA. He was also at the June meeting with the Russians. And of course, the big orange himself, Conservative President Donald Trump.

Remember, folks. Vote liberal Democrat if you want to live.
