I have faith that the FBI is waiting for the DOJ not to be in the pocket of a toadie (and ruin their leverage) to come down like the Hammer of an Angry God on the Russian mob.

When that happens, a lot of loose ends are going to get cinched fairly quick, and I don't think there's anything that keeps Michael Flynn out of another criminal conviction.

Mrbogey: Skleenar: Mrbogey: Where's the proof?

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.

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.


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.

Mrbogey: "...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."


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.

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.

Mrbogey: his son


Oh, and he's a piece of shiat too.

Not going to try to refute your ex-post facto rationalizations and whatever bullshiat you are trying to push here.  Michael Flynn, in any case, lied to the FBI.  Even if you accept your bullshiat smokescreen rationalization, he lied.

You are a liar supporting a liar who is in service of the world's loudest liar.

Congratuations.

Mrbogey: He was the incoming NSA. The FBI knows that's not a violation of the Logan Act.


Bullshiat.  He had exactly ZERO authority before inauguration, and, not only that, was seen as an intelligence liability by the current administration.

Everything after that doesn't matter. There never was a risk of him being convicted of violating the Logan Act.

Doesn't farking matter.  It was illegal and unethical, and since you said it was neither it only needed to be one of the two for you to be a liar.

Which we already know you are.  Please go lie somewhere else.

Mrbogey: The complete injustice of it all is utterly unamerican. But as we've seen, there's a lot of Farkers who have no compunction about acting unamerican if it gets their political rivals.


unintentionally true, unfortunately.

You do realize that a man who plead guilty to a federal crime is walking a free man because he has friends in the DOJ.

It's unjust in the extreme.

Mrbogey: He also didn't lie to the FBI. The FBI notes from the interview state "did not give any indication of deception".


That's because he was a good liar.

That does not say he didn't lie, just that they didn't think he was lying when he actually was lying to them.

How do I know he was lying?  BECAUSE HE farkING PLEAD GUILTY TO LYING.

You are bad at this, really bad.  Please stop for your own self-image.

Mrbogey: This was all done to craft the Russian nonsense


SO WHY DID FLYNN LIE ABOUT HIS DISCUSSIONS WITH THE AMBASSADOR? Why did he lie to the FBI about his discussions? Why did he lie to the Vice President about them? Why did he lie to the President about them? Why did he plead guilty to lying about them?

And how does he have the gall to argue, after ALLLLLL those documented lies, that he was lying about his previous lying, and it's the people who exposed his various lies who are the REAL liars? (Also, lock her up for all her e-mail lies, and Andy McCabe showed a "lack of candor" and deserved to be fired.)

Hasn't he shown us this pattern of lying out of desperation enough that a new claim on the eve of his sentencing - that he's been lying to everyone about his previous lies - should be presumed to be a lie in the absence of any evidence?

Moreover, per the Hillary standard he's (and the rest of the conservatives have) been peddling for the last 5 years, doesn't he DESERVE a spot in jail?

synithium: This sorta farks that conspiracy theory right up its ass sideways.

Better luck next time Republican stooges.


No it doesn't. Quite the.opposite.

Funny how the Democrat line went from "there was no monitoring" to "we only monitored by accident and upper administration officials weren't involved" to "Obama personally was kept aware of it all once we accidentally uncovered it" and now it's "we were monitoring them all along".

As the incoming NSA there was never a Logan Act issue.

This was all done to craft the Russian nonsense and by evidence of how many doors completely bought in to it, it worked. Obama could come out now and state outright that his crew scammed these conspiracy theorist and they'd still say Trump is a Putin puppet.

The Russian conspiracy theorist, like the Truthers, will never change their mind because reason never formed it. It'll just be a gish gallop of meaningless details stripped of context. "But the lease! But the insurance! But jet fuel!!!"

Flynn lied, admitted he lied, and admitted a few more times in writing and in court under oath, that yes, he really did lie on purpose, nobody tricked him, and he meant to plead guilty because he is guilty. And Trump also said he lied, that is why he was fired.

So here it is guys: this whole idea that Flynn was mis treated is just a lie, a total fabrication by Trump.  So you can safely ignore it.  Have a nice day.

Flynn was masked in NSA reports but not FBI intel briefings. The unmasking requests were for the NSA intel. The news reports and subsequent shiatstorm around Flynn came by way of the FBI's spying on Kislyak while he was in the US. Flynn lied about the calls, and if he didn't then the transcripts would have already been released to embarrass the Obama administration. The transcripts will not be released because they will prove Flynn's guilt as well as they may implicate others in the Trump administration to include Trump himself.

I seriously doubt that Flynn's advice to not retaliate was him going rogue on his own. Remember that Trump was considering returning two seized Russian spy compounds right after he took office. Flynn was also doing dirt for Turkey as well.

I sincerely hope that all the dirt done by Flynn et. al. ends up with some serious criminal convictions. America needs justice to drop like lightning from the sky. None of that forgive and forget shiat either. There needs to be prison time or executions if warranted to keep this kind of stuff from happening again. Every single elected official that has tried to cover for Trump should be summarily punished as well. No mercy should be shown to anyone.

The man is a f*cking traitor to the oath of enlistment, his oath as an officer i the United States, to his job as National Security advisor... he betrayed every single thing that we're supposed to hold sacred. For money. Because he wanted a house on Indian Ave. he saw the rich folk in Newport and envied them, wanted what they had.

He's a sh*t human being and I hope some prosecutor is unleashed on him in the future. They danced around his "unmasking" by having Obama just tell Donnie "please don't hire him"

They let him off like the gentleman he was not and never will be. And they still flaunted that deal.

As you can tell, I have a special place in my heart for Mike. I hope all the bad things in life happen to him and only him.
