(Empty Wheel)   For those keeping score, the lies that Flynn told weren't about meeting with the Russians, they were about coordinating with Mar-a-Lago *before* meeting with the Russians   (emptywheel.net) divider line

There's also the matter of him secretly being paid by the Turkish government to lobby for them.  Does that particular lie just go away now?

Not if enough people ask about it often enough.

It's just sort of an amuse-bouche of veniality. Sort of like his paid appearances on RT...

There's also the many lies he told in not disclosing foreign income, several times.

"Lobby." If by lobby you mean kidnap a popular critic of their government, then yeah, sure, he "lobbies."

The judge accepted his guilty pleas - he was fired by the Administration - both Trump and Pence admitted publically that he lied. That's right - lock him up.

My favorite bit of the transition team's involvement was that KT McFarland said she had no memory of knowing about Flynn talking to Kislyak or any idea what they discussed. Then Flynn plead guilty. Then McFarland said she checked her records and it turns out he did talk to her about talking to the Ambassador and that sanctions came up. Oopsie.

And McCord's 302 suggests that Flynn told investigators that he hadn't even heard about the sanctions when he made the call when the text message records show the campaign reaching out to him to alert him about the sanctions.

That poor chicken.

I honestly never believed Flynn's claim that the Dominican Republic has poor/terrible cell phone service.

Was he anywhere in the blue/cyan shaded areas of this map?

Ok, so where's (Boogereater Honorific, or whatever) to sealion about "what lie was Flynn charged with?" and "the FBI entrapped him to lie by telling him that lying to the FBI is a crime" and "MIKE FLYNN NEVER LIED THE FBI SAID THEY DIDN'T SEE HIM SNICKERING INTO HIS HAND AFTER HE SAID THE SKY IS GREEN SO HE DINT LIE" and "what is a 'lie' anyway?"

// this thread oughta be fun...

I was gonna say, as metonyms go, "Mar-a-Lago" has got to be the least helpful one I've seen. You have to skim 2/3 of tfa before you're clear that the author meant 'transition team policy people'.

Besides giving several sworn guilty pleas to the court that he now wants Take-Backsies on without any reason offered as to why except Barr <3 Trump, this little lying traitor was scheming on using mercs to kidnap a cleric in Pennsylvania (a legal US resident) and ship his ass to Erdogan in Turkey.

Just who the fark do you think you are, Flynn?  Which farking hollywood star do you see in the farking mirror, you puke?

Even after this bullshiat with the DOJ now requesting a drop in charges somehow moves to his sentencing, he's likely to get pardoned by Trump.

Now, do you think any of these confederate flag waving assholes who cry about their freedoms and use nazi symbols while waving their rifles around on state capitol steps are outraged?  Not at all.  Most of these pukes believe there is a "deep state" conspiracy that cooked all this up against Trump.

This country is sick and that sickness is likely terminal.

Article says it took a year for the FBI to figure this shiat out, thanks to the lies and cover-ups. It's my day off so I can't / won't follow that convoluted storyline either. Unfortunately we modern Americans often have a gnat's attention span, so we just default to our preordained positions of "tRUmp can do no wrong" or "Guy and his family are the crookedest crooks ever to stink up The Swamp".

And nothing changes.

Teflon Don needs to start paying, and soon. Wish someone could make that happen. ANYONE.

The picture has been around for awhile, but there it is just amazing how much is in it.

-Trump's weird, splotchy face
-The cheesy picture of Trump that looks like it is in a $10 frame from Michael's
-The chipped up garbage furniture
-Ketchup is bad enough, but at least transfer it into a nice glass bottle.

I wonder what those other pictures are that are reflected in the mirror.  At least those don't look like pictures of Trump.

For a club with a $200,000 membership fee, you think you would get better.  Granted, for that fee you get insider trading information and the best way to get favors from the president.

I didn't know this and I followed Russiagate pretty closely.  Yes, it's collusion.

To refresh everyone's memory, the June/July meetings talked about ending sanctions as quid pro quo. Flynn talked to Kislyak about ending sanctions, and he was directed to do it by Trump (this part he lied about to the FBI). That looks like A-->B-->C conspiracy to me. Is this why Trump was so determined to go to bat for Flynn?
