The mainstream media and the left are in the throes of Trump Derangement Syndrome today, salivating because of their belief that President Trump will be … what? Indicted? Impeached? Whatever. They hope to finally be able to overturn the will of the People and remove our President from office, by any means necessary.
In case you missed it, former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty today of lying to the FBI. He did so, after being hounded by the “special counsel” Robert Mueller, as well as after seeing his son similarly hounded.
Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to making false statements to the FBI – as part of a deal that involves his full cooperation with investigators in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
Court documents show Flynn has acknowledged to investigators that at least two Trump transition members were involved in his outreach to Russian officials – though he initially gave false statements about those discussions.
Mind you, and pay close attention: It’s not illegal for anyone in a President-elect’s transition team to speak with foreigners, including Russian ambassadors. They all do it. Nor is it illegal for a President-elect’s transition team to initiate “outreach” to foreigners, including Russians. What’s illegal is lying to the FBI about that “outreach,” which Flynn now admits he did.
What’s outrageous is that the man was put into this position in the first place. What are we? A banana republic? Will every future president’s team be subjected to the same arguably very unconstitutional process, courtesy of the Deep State and the alt-left?
Some in the media, based as usual on anonymous sources, claim that Flynn is going to testify that Trump ordered him (gasp!) to reach out to the Russians. Again, even if he did, it’s not illegal. Barack Obama personally met with foreign leaders, even gave a speech to foreigners, before he was elected. He even campaigned for an alleged relative who was running for office in Kenya.
Trump was at least President-elect at the time of Flynn’s outreach. Trump was chosen by We the People to head the executive branch. Every incoming president does “outreach” to those with whom he or she will soon be dealing, on behalf of the American people.
If you get distracted by claims that it’s illegal for an ordinary citizen to “interfere” in foreign policy, then keep in mind that very soon Barack Obama, now a private citizen, plans to soon (once again) shadow President Trump’s steps on an Asian tour to–guess what–meet with foreign leaders, including the head of what was formerly called Red China!
Is this illegal? Is this collusion? Is this interfering in President Trump’s foreign policy? Can President Trump have Obama investigated as soon as he returns? Can he sic the FBI on Obama and make him testify in minute detail about every conversation he had while overseas?
Remember that Flynn has already admitted to being a liar. He just testified to that as fact. He was fired from the Trump administration for exactly that–for lying (or misleading) Vice President Pence.
So ask yourself: Of what value is anything Flynn may now say? Especially if his cooperation or testimony involves seeing his son let off the hook?
Think about why Flynn lied (if he lied) in the first place. Was it to protect Trump? Compare that motivation to the motivation (to lie?) that he must now feel as he sees himself facing years in prison and also his son–his own son–being threatened. A son who apparently isn’t being charged at this time.
Nothing in Flynn’s testimony involves collusion with Russians to influence the election, which is the “crime” (another non-crime) being investigated by this out-of-control special counsel. All as a result of what looks like illegal spying upon the Trump campaign by the Deep State and the Obama administration, potentially in collusion with the Clinton campaign, Russians, and even the media.
Already it’s rumored in the mainstream media that Flynn is going to implicate President Trump’s son-in-law somehow. To what end? Most likely, the Deep State figures that going after the President’s family will be the best way to get him to resign, since they won’t be able to indict or impeach him for something that’s not a crime in the first place.
This is a travesty of justice. It’s un-American. This is the sort of thing that happens in places like Venezuela and Nigeria.
Where will this witch hunt end? When will it end? How much more will We the People have to pay in order for this witch hunt to continue, as the Deep State goes after the man we elected to drain the swamp?
Will the left never learn? Do they really think that if they hound President Trump from office that the way will be clear for a President Harris?
In their dreams.
