mrshowrules: Mrbogey: he was told the FBI had solid evidence, and he had no evidence to counter it other than his word.

I don't believe that is true but even if it is - that is a common tactic in getting a confession and does not disqualify it.  Almost every confession is based on the premise of, "we can proof you did it so you better confess"


"...and if you don't confess, we'll drag your son into this. You know you don't have the resources to save both your asses. Just sign this paper and you'll get six months in jail. Tops."

Troy McClure: Mrbogey: Troy McClure: Mrbogey: Skleenar: Mrbogey: Easy answer. He never lied.

Show me the evidence he lied. There is none.

Fark off

Where's the proof?

Notes filed weeks after the interview? No transcript. No solid evidence.

If they didn't threaten his son, he'd have never admitted guilt. That's patently unamerican.

This is why Trump needs some indictments on key Obama figures. Y'all ain't gonna stop being unamerican unless there's pain involved.

Your dad Michael Flynn was paid over half a million dollars by the Turkish government to spin positive PR for Turkey all while he was working for the Trump campaign.

Flynn was advising a presidential candidate who became the nominee about foreign policy.  Flynn spoke at the party's national convention.  Flynn gladly accepted Trump's offer to be our National Security Advisor.  And during that entire time, he was being paid by a foreign totalitarian government to help that foreign government get better treatment by our government.

And you want to lecture us on what is unamerican.  This guy you feverishly defend is the very definition of unamerican.

Bijan Kian got his verdict overturned and he was as culpable as Flynn. The lobbying allegations went nowhere. It's a dead issue.

Yes, plea deals tend to put an end to other charges.  That's the point of a plea deal.


And that's where Giglio comes into play.

Thanks for posting a nearly three week old opinion piece.  Big help.

The F*cking document in the F*cking link.

Unless you've retreated so far from reality that someone saying to law enforcement "I totally did that thing" is no longer evidence that they did that thing.

I guess I understand where you are coming from:  You have based your political views on a foundation of lies.  You don't even understand what constitutes "evidence" or "proof" or "justice". Every "true fact" you stand behind has to be retconned with every new bit of evidence.  You're past the part where that bothers you anymore.  You just accept the new rationalization and move forward.  The fact what you ar saying is either patently ludicrous or contradictory to what you claimed before has no relevance to your worldview.  Your function is to spout the new "truth" as loudly and as repeatedly as necessary until a new "truth" comes along for you to champion.

You are not tethered to reality.  Please don't expect rational people to accept what you say as fact.

I don't believe this is true either but, if his son is mixed up in this also, why not use that as leverage.  If Flynn confessed to protect his son, he seems like a bit of a craven weasel for backing out of the deal now.  I hope Biden's DoJ charges Flynn's son if he was guilty of something. A deal is a deal.

No offence but you are really coming of like a pro-criminal, bleeding heart liberal.  I thought conservatives were big on law and order and going after people who betray their country.

There's no evidence of a crime in that link. It's an FBI assertion. Flynn's confession was coerced.

The lynching of Michael Flynn failed due to lack of evidence.  Deal with it.

Now go back to being an unfunny word search parody account. Do what you're almost good at.

He would have to be the dumbest f$cker on earth to confess if there was no evidence.  Trump really needs to explain why he threw Flynn under the bus, fired him and did not stop his overzealous DoJ from prosecuting.  Plus to go after Flynn's son.  That's f$ck sick.  Trump is a sick f$cking asshole.

Really shows you how much that draft dodging coward hates veterans.  He should be ashamed of himself.  #flynngate #Trumphatesmilitary #Flynndidn'tmeantoconfessbecauseheisaf​$ckingidiot

Did you ever think how curious a coincidence it is, that the intelligence and law enforcement agencies that were the scourge of organized crime and foreign intelligence suddenly flipped sides and became the bad guys when Trump took over?

I mean, because those of us in the real world perfectly understand why you think this.  And it isn't because they changed allegiances.

Gyrfalcon: After all this time, I'm surprised nobody has said what was obvious to me from the start:

"Masking" is a term of art, like "screening" in law offices, and has nothing to do with "hiding" or "concealing" the identity of the individual; but only (I'm guessing, by comparison with the term screening) removing or redacting the name where it would conflict with other individuals in documents or meeting minutes.

"Unmasking" in this context would mean that his name was simply unredacted (not that his identity was unveiled like a Jason Bourne or James Bond villain) as the individual present at a meeting everyone was at; it was never a secret, just that his name had been blacked out for purposes of preventing conflicts of interest.

I could be wrong, of course; but it wouldn't be the first time in this administration that an arcane term of art was misconstrued to mean something more dramatic than it really is.


I thought it had to do with recording Satanic messages backwards on rock and roll albums...
