Michael Flynn Lying about contact with Russia
« on: February 13, 2017, 09:14:14 pm »
Michael Flynn stated that he did not discuss the sanctions imposed by Obama on Russia at the end of his term in phone calls with the Russian Ambassador prior to Trump being sworn in. Turns out that was probably a lie http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/10/just-how-much-trouble-is-michael-flynn-in/?utm_term=.a35b2dec1288.

Bearing in mind that these communications are recorded and listened into on both ends it is amazing that he thought he would get away with the lie. He also misinformed Mike Pence. Is this the first Trump official who has to step down?



Do you think the same people who called for Hillary to go to prison are going to be red hot to prosecute Flynn?

No... because he has a penis.

I don't think it's just the penis. These people were just as red hot to get Bill Clinton as they were for Hillary. Because lying about a blowjob is as important as lying about deals with foreign governments.

Having said that I don't think they would ever have been so enthusiastic to jail Hillary if she had schlong. To this day I haven't figured out what she was meant to have done.

They were hot to get Clinton because he broke what they'd thought was a Republican stranglehold on the Presidency. They'd been painting Democratic candidates as "wacky liberals" for a good while, and crushing them, and suddenly Clinton comes along and presents himself as being decidedly not that and (with some help from Perot, to be sure) wins. And they were just as hot to get Hillary because she was (or at least was seen as) the power behind the throne. It didn't matter that he pushed the Democratic Party ideologically closer to the Republican Party (Who did NAFTA? Clinton. Who repealed Glass-Steagall? Clinton), he was a Democrat who won the Presidency, and then he won it again. They couldn't stand that, so they pulled out the stops to get him.

There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

So Flynn resigned among rumors he was being blackmailed by Russia. My question is with all of this Russian news going on over these past months, is there anyone else being blackmailed in the Trump administration? Anyone else that could be compromising our security? I've heard that our intelligence agencies don't want to tell trump anything because they're afraid he'll blab it all to Putin.

All this caused by a bunch of drooling morons who thought this would "shake up" the establishment. Perhaps disinterest and contempt were all Trump Voters really deserved.
I am offensively offensive. How Offensive!

So he did resign. First one down. How many more will go before the first 100 days are up? My bet is at least 4

Nah, the guy's a conspiracy theorist, isn't respected by his peers and seems a few stubbies short of a six pack.

Closer to Trump's heart than Pence by a country mile!

Trump fans at Reddit blame Obama, teh DEEP STATE, "cucks" and everyone else other than Trump while at the same time insisting that what Flynn did was no big deal...

Edit: Also claims that firing Flynn means that Trump is serious about "draining the sawmp" and that we should stop talking about this "non-issue."

And everyone they dislike is a "cuck" or a pedophile.

This is true. Hell, I saw someone on twitter blaming Obama for the failed raid on Yemen.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".

Trump team managed to make people believe that the plan was made during the Obama administration and that's why Trump can't be blamed for the failure (or they claim that it went just as planned and few dead children are not a problem.)

In reality though Obama had refused to accept the mission as it seemed too risky. The military continued gathering more information and the plan kept evolving, but as soon as Trump got the throne he told them to do it immediately. Risk taking and getting a successful anti-terrorism mission during his first month would have given him bragging rights if it had succeeded...

They want to blame Obama because Obama appointed him the director of the defense intelligence agency. With him clearly not being a fan of Obama or Clinton, I'm not sure why he did that.
But it was Trump that made him his national security advisor.
