    BTW, when Flynn lied on his security clearance application was that when the democrat was working for Obama for about two years back in 2012 or the 24 days he was working for Drumpf? Didn't he need the highest security clearance then?

    This seems like a big nothing burger. I am glad Robert Mueller is spending a sh*t load of money to cook this up.
    I thought Mueller was looking into collusion before the election? As I understand it, this charge is for lying about a meeting that took place after the election.

    I would love if the Muller investigation produced something more than Flynn forgot that he talked to some russian and didn't put that down on his application given the money we are spending on this investigation. I want heads to roll and both the dems and GOP parties to burn to the ground. Mueller has to do better than this given all the money we are pumping into this investigation. Come on man!

    Uh huh. So you've never heard of the idea of a lesser target pleading guilty to something small so he can give the scoop on the big fish they're really going after? It's racketeering/organized crime prosecution 101.

    You really don’t see the rot that is the Trump administration? FYI Flynn was fired from the DIA, and Trump prompted him. Speaking of people’s party affiliations, why don’t you point to those criticizing Mueller that he’s a republican?

    How much you want to bet Trump fires Mueller sooner than later?


    Flynn has promised special counsel 'full cooperation' in Russia probe: Source

    Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn has promised “full cooperation” in the special counsel’s Russia investigation and, according to a confidant, is prepared to testify that Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians, initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria.

    The stunning turn comes as Flynn, who is cooperating with investigators in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI about his back-channel negotiations with the Russian ambassador – talks that occurred before Trump took office. The Special Counsel made the plea agreement public Friday morning.

    A close confidant told ABC News that Flynn felt abandoned by Trump in recent weeks, and told friends about the decision to make the plea deal within the last 24 hours as he grew increasingly concerned about crippling legal costs he would face if he continued to contest the charges.

    “It has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of ‘treason’ and other outrageous acts,” Flynn said in a statement. “Such false accusations are contrary to everything I have ever done and stood for. But I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right.”

    Flynn initially denied that he discussed U.S. sanctions placed on Russia with Kislyak, but transcripts of Flynn and Kislyak’s phone calls reviewed by Justice Department lawyers showed otherwise.

    Flynn was paid over $500,000 by foreign clients for consulting work and speaking fees – including contracts he allegedly failed to list on applications for security clearances and financial disclosure forms. He also only belatedly disclosed lobbying work his firm engaged in on behalf of the Turkish government

    it shouldn't be that hard to come up with a definition of what it would be. The fear is that it's a line that eventually will be proven to have been crossed. I've concluded that the bottom line for loyal rump supporters is that they really don't care if Russia and Trump colluded and what national security was compromised in the process as long as Hillary lost.

    Kushner Is Said to Have Ordered Flynn to Contact Russia
    Now that the retired general has pleaded guilty, the president's son-in-law could be one of the next dominoes to fall.


    Two former officials with the Trump transition team who worked closely with Flynn say that during the last days of the Obama administration, the retired general was instructed to contact foreign ambassadors and foreign ministers of countries on the U.N. Security Council, ahead of a vote condemning Israeli settlements. Flynn was told to try to get them to delay that vote until after Barack Obama had left office, or oppose the resolution altogether.

    That is relevant now because one of Flynn’s lies to the FBI was when he said that he never asked Russia's ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak, to delay the vote for the U.N. Security Council resolution. The indictment released today from the office of special prosecutor Robert Mueller describes this lie: "On or about December 22, 2016, Flynn did not ask the Russian Ambassador to delay the vote on or defeat a pending United Nations Security Council resolution."

    At the time, the U.N. Security Council resolution on Israeli settlements was a big deal. Even though the Obama administration had less than a month left in office, the president instructed his ambassador to the United Nations to abstain from a resolution, breaking a precedent that went back to 1980 when it came to one-sided anti-Israel resolutions at the U.N.

    This was the context of Kushner's instruction to Flynn last December. One transition official at the time said Kushner called Flynn to tell him he needed to get every foreign minister or ambassador from a country on the U.N. Security Council to delay or vote against the resolution. Much of this appeared to be coordinated also with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose envoys shared their own intelligence about the Obama administration's lobbying efforts to get member states to support the resolution with the Trump transition team.

    Well, so far, me and Mueller are on the same side. No collusion. Charges so far are relatively ticky tack.

    I think it is hard to define collusion, but something that I would definitely see as collusion would be a conspiracy or agreement to commit election fraud in order to win. Providing dirt on Hillary is dirty politics, and troublesome, but there is so much of that that goes on with both sides that I don't see that as impeachable. If Trump was caught agreeing to or directing Russians to steal certain types of information that they then went and did under some type of agreement, that would probably be an impeachable offense in my mind. If Trump was knowingly approving of a variety of activities in concert with the Russians to take down Hillary, I would also probably see that as an impeachable offense, too.

    The facebook stuff warrants serious review and countermeasures, but I think that that was more of Russia sowing discord and doubt in our electoral system. I have not seen evidence that was a direct action in coordination with Trump.

    What's your definition, Frank? BlueK?

    ABC news is ‘clarifying’ that it was president-elect Trump, rather than candidate Trump, who directed Flynn to talk to the countries. That’s a pretty big clarification.

    Colossal is a good way to put it. The media continues to feed the “fake news” frenzy through their incompetence and downright eagerness to catch Trump.

    On the funny side, I just saw this:
