Mike Flynn Pleads Guilty to Lying to the FBI over Communications with Russian Ambassador

Washington, DC...The following is a Statement by Lt. General Michael T. Flynn (Ret.) "After over 33 years of military service to our country, including nearly five years in combat away from my family, and then my decision to continue to serve the United States, it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of "treason" and other outrageous acts. 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.




My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel's Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.

December 1, 2017"

These traitors forget if you use the internet, or phones, there are records, and copies of the traffic.
It is not a matter of us vrs them, There Are Records.

Flynn has admitted tRump told him to contact the Russians before the election if elected, Trump would lower /remove the sanctions on Russia.
This is illegal.
Flynn is telling all about the campaign staff, which would also include Pense, who were involved in the Russia conversations.
This is illegal.

In the way back machine, the Carter- Reagan election, it is well documented Reagan was in contact with the Iranians, and had them hold the hostages until after the election. They did, Reagan narrowly won, and he gave them the parts for US war planes for their agreement to hold the hostages until after the election. The moment Reagan was Inaugurated, minutes later, Iran flew out the hostages.
The chapter was remembered as the Iran-Contra scandal.

This was Treason also. History repeats itself.

      Obama kept Flynn employed on his security team during the last years of his term.
      President Trump had the moral fortitude to fire Flynn for lying.

      Flynn spoke with foreign leaders during Trump's Transition, that is proper behavior for a security adviser.

      Neither President Trump nor Roy Moore has done anything illegal or immoral, meanwhile Despicable Democrats are dropping like flies.

      Thank you President Trump for Making America Great Again.

        If Roy Moore's attempt to force a 16 year-old girl to give him oral sex and then throw her out of the vehicle when she refuses is your idea of nothing wrong, I think you better take a good long look at your own moral compass.

        Are you completely delusional??!!

        Sally Yates of the DOJ warned Trump that Flynn had lied about Russian contacts soon after the inauguration but Trump didn't get rid of Flynn until weeks afterwards when the Washington Post was about to run a story on Flynn's dishonesty. If the WashPo hadn't found the story, Flynn would still be working in the White House. Trump is as sleezy as they come.

        Defending Roy Moore is beyond despicable. Even his friends acknowledge he "dated" teenage girls while in his 30s. One excused it by pointing out the virgin Mary was a teenager. Another said Flynn dated teenagers because they were "pure" compared to girls his own age. If Roy Moore doesn't turn your stomach, you are a disgusting pervert yourself.

        16 women have credibly accused Trump of groping them or otherwise being physically sexually inappropriate with them. One was groped and involuntarily kissed in Ivanka Triump's bedroom during a time Melania was pregnant with Baron. Trump is as disgusting as any of the other sexual predators currently in the news and worse than most of them.

        Wake up to what's going on.

      This is from NBC, I think:

      Shortly after former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about conversations with Russia's ambassador, former FBI Director James Comey shared a justice-minded verse from the Bible on Twitter and Instagram.

      "'But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream,' Amos 5:24," Comey wrote, referring to the Bible's book of Amos.

      Comey tweeted the same biblical passage in November after President Donald Trump called the former FBI director a "liar." Comey, a United Methodist and one-time Sunday school teacher, said it's his "favorite scripture verse."

    The good news is Hillary will never be in the White House, that is why I wanted Trump in the first place, that and the WALL. So far one of my Christmas wishes came true. Perfect example is the 5 times deported illegal in SF who walked away from murder and manslaughter charges for killing the young lady while walking with her father. That's the justice by c@$# sucking liberals? Imagine that being one of your loved ones.

      You would favor just executing people without a trial? What if it was one of your loved ones that was executed by the state without a trial by jury?

      Of course, maybe you attended the trial and know the jury decided to acquit an obviously guilty man because he was an illegal alien Is that it? Did you hear the evidence?

      Didn't think so.

Lots of articles on Trump's increasing mental instability. Need to get him out of office before he starts a war or in some other way puts the whole country in danger. Republicans need to put country ahead of party.

Having Mueller coming after you would scare anyone. Trump is a bully so has no real bravery to face something like that. And he's coming apart mentally. Anyone paying attention can see it in his tweets and speeches. And in his retreat from reality. He's back to saying Obama wasn't born in the US. He says the vile words he spoke on the Access Hollywood tape are not his. But he's already apologized for saying those things. Does he think we are as stupid as he is?

Trump supporters need to get off the sinking ship and tell their representatives to get Trump out of office pronto.

        but...but...he's a doctor. Well, a PhD in nutritional ethnomedicine anyway. As Weiner he writes books on herbal medicine and homeopathy. As a thinker Michael Weiner (aka Savage) is like homeopathy - invalid and a scam.

        Here's Wikipedia on homeopathy: "Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, based on his doctrine of like cures like (similia similibus curentur), a claim that a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people would cure similar symptoms in sick people.[1] Homeopathy is a pseudoscience – a belief that is incorrectly presented as scientific. Homeopathic preparations are not effective for treating any condition;[2][3][4][5] large-scale studies have found homeopathy to be no more effective than a placebo, indicating that any positive effects that follow treatment are only due to the placebo effect, normal recovery from illness, or regression toward the mean.[6][7][8]"

        And how lame is it to name yourself Savage? Did he take Real as a middle name?

    White House Cancels Press Friday
    Posted on: 2017-12-01 12:00:23   By: Anonymous
     




    President Donald Trump’s sole appearance before the White House press pool was abruptly canceled today after former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

    According to Ben C. Jacobs of The Guardian, today’s reporter assigned to represent print outlets, members of the press were brought outside the Oval Office for what was scheduled to be a quick media availability.


    They were taken back inside the briefing room not long after.

    White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Waters told them several minutes later that they would not be given access to today’s meeting between the President and Libyan prime minister Fayez al-Sarraj.

    There will be no daily Press briefing today either.

    Run! Run! Run!
    Don't give the farmer his fun!
    Fun! Fun!
    He'll get by without his rabbit pie

    So run rabbit - run rabbit
    Run! Run! Run!
    Run Adolf, Run Adolf, Run, Run, Run,
    Now that the fun has begun, gun, gun;

    P'raps you'll just allow us to explain,
    What we did once, - we can do again.
    We're making shells by the ton, ton, ton.
    We've got the men and the mon, mon, mon.

    So, run Adolf, run Adolf, run, run, run.
