In a move that has the entire liberal media establishment up in arms with claims that this could bring down the president, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador.
Despite the fact that outlets such as CNN and ABC News are breathlessly reporting that the charges against Flynn have to do with Russia, it has actually been revealed that the reason for the calls to the Russians was to coordinate the FIGHT AGAINST ISIS.
ABC News reported that Flynn, the former national security adviser, would testify that he was directed to make contact with Russians during the presidential campaign in 2016. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his postelection contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.
ABC said later in an updated report that Flynn will say Trump asked him to make contact with Russia “initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria.”
In a statement, Flynn said he agreed to “cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country.”
That’s right, Michael Flynn, and President Trump by extension, are now being attacked by Mueller and the entire deep state simply for seeking to work closer with Russia in order to take out literal terrorists!
Paul Joseph Watson reports:
As news broke that Michael Flynn would testify that Donald Trump ordered him to talk to the Russians during the transition phase between administrations, the left exploded with glee that actual evidence of “Russian collusion” was in sight and it could bring down Trump.
The reality turned out to be somewhat disappointing for them.
ABC News reported that Trump directed Flynn to speak with the Russians “initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria.”
In other words, Trump committed the grievous sin of attempting to work diplomatically with another super power to defeat Islamic terrorism.
This is hardly the damaging revelation Trump’s enemies had been hoping for.
Talking to ambassadors is not a criminal offense, it’s a routine procedure for incoming administrations. Obama campaign officials responsible for the “reset policy” with Russia met with Russian officials back in 2008 before the election had even taken place.
The real reason Flynn was brought down on a technicality is because he made an enemy out of the deep state by directing exposing them for failing to fight ISIS and to some extent actually helping the spread of radical Islam.
At this point one has to wonder if Mueller himself is actually running cover for a terrorist organization as he has done in the past.
The National Review’s Andrew McCarthy also destroyed the notion that this is some big bombshell:
It remains unclear why the Obama Justice Department chose to investigate Flynn. There was nothing wrong with the incoming national-security adviser’s having meetings with foreign counterparts or discussing such matters as the sanctions in those meetings. Plus, if the FBI had FISA recordings of Flynn’s conversations with Kislyak, there was no need to ask Flynn what the conversations entailed.
Flynn is prepared to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians — initially to lay the groundwork for mutual efforts against ISIS in Syria. That, however, is exactly the sort of thing the incoming national-security adviser is supposed to do in a transition phase between administrations. If it were part of the basis for a “collusion” case arising out of Russia’s election meddling, then Flynn would not be pleading guilty to a process crime — he’d be pleading guilty to an espionage conspiracy.
So there you have it. These entire “bombshell revelations against Flynn” are literally NOTHING but two politicians trying to reach out to another country in order to FIGHT ACTUAL TERRORISTS. I repeat, Flynn and Trump are being attacked for reaching out to a Russian ambassador about FIGHTING ISIS.
It truly doesn’t get any more bizarre than the establishment media attacking Americans who want to take out ISIS.
Everybody has already forgotton that Ovbama was very much trying to start a war with Russia in the run up to the election and even afterwards before Trump took office.
If Trump made contact with the Russians before taking office, the GOOD, it prevented a war.
By the way, even my elementary aged children know NEVER SPEAK TO THE F.B.I.
There is ZERO to be gained from speaking to the FBI. Every charge coming out of all this BS is “Lying to the FBI”.
Also, it should not be a crime to lie to the FBI. Don’t we have free speech? Lying to the FBI is not done under oath. This is more bullshit tyranny.
This is a government coup d’etat in progress. So much for democracy.
You got that shit right. The FBI ain’t God even though they apparently believe they are. I’d of told them to go pound sand.
And BTW if Flynn goes down with any infractions I hope Trump has the balls to pardon him in the FIRST HOUR. For freedom plus …….just for shits and giggles.
Roger that. The Deep State has its back to the wall.
They will use ANY and ALL means to take out Trump.
He is working WITH Putin and Xi to take out the cabal.
The cabal/banksters/neocons and neoprogs are the ones starting all the fucking wars.
It does not mean that Trump is colluding with the Russians.
Trump, Putin, and Xi all want the Deep State gone for their own reasons.
The Bush and Clinton crime syndicates are worried. Very worried.
And so are the entities that they served.
Those entities are the Reptilian overlords.
JS, agreed. Trump is doing his best to avoid war.
Yes BH, he’s doing his best by antagonizing and provoking a maniacal crazy man who hates the U.S.
Chances of Trump being impeached are Zip, Zero, Nada
PO’d Patriot, I would hope one day Trump will appoint Flynn to another position, maybe even bring him back for National Security Advisor. H.R. McMaster and Dina Powell need to be given the boot. McMaster is CFR with ties to George Soros and supports Muslims.
I’d hope that Trump would just issue a Presidential pardon for any and all supposed crimes Flynn may’ve been party to; and then, offer him an even higher office/job.
BTW, to my knowledge, no one has to speak to the FBI or any other fed agency.
IMO you should never say a single word to ANY cop, fed, or other so called authority. When they say anything YOU say can and will be used against you THEY ARE NOT KIDDING! Just shut up and make THEM prove their case. NEVER consent to any searches either. Don’t believe the lies they will tell you that if you co operate they will go favorably on you. Don’t believe it when they say so and so said you did it. They try every trick in the book go get you to incriminate yourself. Get a lawyer and speak only to them.
You are absolutely correct.
My general rules are;
If a cop ever initiates a contact,
do not volunteer ANY information.
Do not consent to anything.
Ask “am I being detained?
Ask “am I free to go”?
If you are being detained cooperate with
their directions, but nothing says you
have to answer questions.
I never violate any constitutional federal,
state, local laws, and I have a lawyer
on speed dial.
Genius and Rellik, I also have the same policy. I love how we get on the same page on various topics. Always knew I was in the right place.
Probably because we are generally of similar age, fairly well educated and/or experienced, are not well off, but not dirt poor.
We want to have some control, when the rest of the world is out of control. Most people on this site ROCK!
I visit a lot of other sites. One in particular, Freerepublic has been posting a lot of shftplan articles lately. I’ve been banned there twice( but I figured out how to beat their security) . They have a much lower tolerance for free expression than Mac does, but shftplan gets a lot of positive remarks (and I assume “hits). Freerepublic has no advertising and is alway begging for money. BH1776 there are are a lot of us out there.
This guy was innocent, hadn’t broken any laws, and had nothing to hide. Check out his story.
POLICING FOR PROFIT
Unbelievable what just happened to this guy. And it could happen to anyone.
The deep state needs to be destroyed.
I honestly don’t know how this country is going to survive the libs,deep state,and mueller
Southside, there’s something called bullets to take care of those and that day is coming.
Russia as Americas enemy is a stretch to believe but continues nonstop over half a century later.
I though Mrs Bill Clinton lied to the FBI. But that’s the Clinton’s. This bombshell happened post election.
Nothing bizarre about it when you realize the deep state created isis.
Plan B: New Saudi Prince leads a coalition of the willing to go directly after Iran since the Syrian operation failed.
Of course Trump’s being attacked for coordinating with Russia on attacks against horrible ISIS terrorists. Klinton’s created ISIS terrorists to attack Syria. End of story.
