    The guy literally pleads guilty…..enter Bill Barr and it is no more….hmmmmmm

    • When your forced to plead guilty to stop the govt from destroying your children , then you plead guilty. Apparently you never researched the case. I spotted the frame job right off.

    • Ask the question< why were the charges against Flynn dropped? Everything is there to show you why the case was a frame job.

    • readhttps://theinsurgent.com/2020/05/08/doj-motion-to-drop-Flynn-case-is-troubling?yeah you need to down load to get whole thing, the FBI entrapped him, regardless of what other things he did, and that taints the case, hence charges dropped, same stuff happens in our world

      Withheld exculpatory evidence was forced out days before the exoneration. That should tell you something about the case FBI attempted to screw him with.

  3. So much swamp and THE AG is complicit !!!!

  4. I hope all the Lawyers for Government working for Barr all quit.. He is not working for the US..

    • Look at this, another commentor who is completely and intentionally unaware of recent news.

    • OH look OBAMA DID THE SAME THING ” Holder said he took such dramatic action to reverse Stevens’ conviction in part due to prosecutors’ repeated failure to provide important and potentially exculpatory information to the defense team” LMFAO.. MAN you guys are ill informed ……

      @Sean M Stevens was a Republican and certainly not an Obama lackey like Flynn, wasn’t he? So I guess it wasn’t the same thing, wasn’t it?

    • @Paul Trump owes China 150 millions in loans and he praises the Chinese at the beginning of this then claimed it would not amount to anything until it became impossible to deny it

    • @IWashMyOwnBrain no trump is abusing the Constitution and the cowards in the republican party are letting him trump been financed for years by the russians

    • Criminals have always been running the country. That is called democracy.

      @John Doe All forms of government are subject to corruption. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. But you aren’t wrong. Our government is rife with criminality.

    • Nope , obumer is gone , Comey fired , McCabe fired etc etc . Your echo chamber bubble is about to implode .

  6. America is drowning in the swamp.

  7. Barr should be thrown in jail with the rest of them. What a corrupt administration

      A pardon is an admission of guilt. Flynn will get off scot-free without suffering any punishment for a felony he pled guilty to last year.

      These honorable people who were unAmericanly setup and railroaded by Obama will all soon be back in their gov and private positions!

    • Robert Syrett | May 7, 2020 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      @Rand Kocher So If I work for a foreign government and take payments from them and lie to the FBI about it, in violation of the law, would I also be honorable? Flynn says that is what he did. The honorable thing to do would be for him to take responsibility.

    13th Trait of the Rise of Fascism: Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
    Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability.

    • โ€‹@Pontus Ekholm Ill address all your points.

      “but some people do have experience managing epidemics such as the Ebola epidemic during the Obama administration”

      Fine, and I am 100% sure they were utilize as they were not fired, they were moved/merged into other departments. Furthermore, why is a doctor qualified to manage an economy or supply chain during a global pandemic anymore than a non medical professor qualified to manage the supply/procurement/production side of a pandemic? Using your reasoning, there is no on qualified unless they have a degree in “manage global pandemics”. Sorry man, that’s not how it works. There are many pieces, simply because its a medical crisis doesn’t mean doctors have to manage every aspect of the crisis.

      “Iโ€™m going to make the claim that they are better tasked for this job than private equity analysts.”

      So, he was put in charge of a specific tasks, which I believe was tracking the utilization and distribution and supply of medical equipment. That’s it. Why is that a tasks for a person with a medical degree? Its not. It would be a WASTE of a doctors time. You act as if he was in charge of the entire operation, that is not true.

      “Those surpluses are the result of state initiatives. They solved the PPE problem as much as they could without federal help, itโ€™s only recently that the federal government started helping because they wasted time”

      Thats just false. The feds worked with the states and many state governors thanked them. You clearly didnt watch the covid daily briefings.

      “The US is still not performing well in a global perspective since other countries put people who know what they are doing in charge.”

      Compared to whom? Your generalized statement is meaningless to me and it wont get by me. Start naming some countries that killed it that are 330 million people in size, have a decentralized government, a constitution guaranteeing rights, etc. I am sure N. Korea crushed it. LOL.

      In the end, we managed to have surpluses of equipment, field hospitals that were never used, etc. So, while you can criticize Trump putting a family member on the team, the results speak for themselves.

      I will also add, manage a pandemic should NEVER be left to medical professionals. That is a recipe for DISASTER. They would say “lock everything down until there is a cure”, because they are ONLY concerned with the medical aspect of the crisis. Meanwhile, people starve, everyone is out work, suicide rates go up, there are riots, etc.

      If you take this administrations actions in the context that this is the ONLY pandemic every faced in over 100 Years, then their grade goes up. If you remove context and simply compare it with your idea of perfection, well, then your opinion is simply partisan.

      @Pontus Ekholm yes. So my mistake, I retract that Hillary reference. The Treasonous Obama is your ‘Hero’. Good Enough. However, I’m not going to dignify anymore of your comments, BUT…the Great Mark Twain will:
      “In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”
      FYI, I was a staunch Liberal/Democrat AND believe it or not, a Muslim. No kidding. Until Trump happened on the scene, and the rest as they say is…#walkaway

      inlikeflynn Obama is not my hero either. Heโ€™s just a guy whoโ€™s some bad things and some good things. Better fit for president than Trump, sure, but you donโ€™t need to be โ€my heroโ€ to be that.

    Something smells rotten in Justice Department.

    • @bob Things we ve learned;
      Gen Flynn was framed
      Hillary and the DNC paid for the fake dossier with russians lies
      Obamas FBI was a disgrace.

    • @Abc 123 <------------ Candidate for Twit of the Year award Vlad will be proud.

    • @Brian R. Dems have nothing without Russia narative, btw Mueller showed that Potus Trump has nothing to do with Russia, sorry.

    • @Abc 123 – you did not read the report.
      There were over a dozen identified occurrences of back-channel meetings between a variety of Russian officials and operatives, and members of the Trump campaign. Most of the meetings coincided with cyber attacks on U.S. data systems, which is a federal crime.
      The investigation also uncovered evidence of the business deal between Donald Trump and the Russian government to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, despite candidate Trump’s assertion that he “had nothing whatsoever to do with Russia”.
      The fact that you do not understand the report does not diminish its findings.

    • @Brian R.I think u dont listened to Mueller, certainly Potus Trump did nothing illegal:
      “There is insufficient evidence to convict for a charge of conspiracy with russian interference in the 2016 election”
      The Dems without Russia are losing control.
      This is time to investigate the Obamas deep state criminal creatures and the coup against the duly electec Potus Trump.

    Didnโ€™t his first judge ask why he isnโ€™t being charged with treason?

    • Bato Keto … Under President Barack Obama:
      No arrests in his

      campaign or administration.

      No plea deals
      No guilty pleas
      No indictments
      No hatred towards others
      No demeaning, bullying or inhumane treatment towards others.
      No racist or homophobic demeaning ideology towards his fellow American..
      The World Loves Barack Obama.

      Donald J. Trump is the worst president in American history.

    • yea… then he apologized… “they” forgot to tell you that.

    • “The judge begins by clarifying that he wasn’t suggesting Michael Flynn committed treason, he was asking to get a sense of offenses โ€” “I was just curious.” Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack says the government had NO reason to believe Flynn committed treason”

    • @Natural BB Then from what you say Trump is as big a moron because TRUMP AGREED WITH THE CHARGES. He is the stable genius right? So he should have seen the setup from the beginning or at least studied the notes like you did to come to that conclusion. Did you agree with your orange saviour when he tweeted about Flynns guilt? I bet you did. I bet you were talking about how flynn betrayed dear leader but now that the orange turd calls him a hero he is a hero right? You guys go around calling people brainwashed but cant remembet the last lie you told in defense of the pos potus.

      @Constantine THIS is your argument? Of all the criminals who are pressured to confess due to their friends, family, criminal partners, etc….I guarantee this is the FIRST one that you’re whining about. And what kind of man signs a confession about this own guilt without fighting for his freedom? Bull*hit. He SIGNED a confession with his own signature, negotiated a deal and admitted guilt in court….but now, we’re supposed to believe it’s all because his family was now pressured. Guaranteed your never shed a tear for another criminal before ‘being pressured.’ Now, he’s magically innocent. How cowardly.

      So you think it is cool that the FBI bugged the phone of an incoming National Security adviser. Really? What would you have said if Bush would have did that to obama? Back crying in the streets would be my guess.

      Just not a thinker, are you? What, exactly, do you think his job was? He spoke to dozens of leaders or their representatives. It’s in the job description. This is why the left is losing their collective minds. Don’t get your news from cnn or any of the other mainstream jokes. The longer you stay in the dark, the longer they keep you clueless.

    • David Schlessinger | May 9, 2020 at 5:27 AM | Reply

      @Constantine Actually, the lack of thinking is on your behalf. I want you to pay attention to a few key points, if you can. 1. Review hundreds, if you can, of my last comments to other folks on different videos. I am not ‘On the left.’ I simply find corruption at any level unacceptable. 2. Flynn was caught, red-handed, talking to the Russians about sanctions without Presidential approval. 3. Then ( to Trump’s and Pence’s admittance), lied to the Vice President about it. 4. The lied to the FBI about it. 5. Walked into Federal court, raised his right hand, and swore to tell the truth. 6. While in court, Flynn told Judge Emmet Sullivan – “I lied to the FBI, I knew it was a crime and I have no defense to this action while doing it knowingly and voluntarily.” 7. At the end of his comments to Emmet Sullivan – “I know I am guilty and hereby plead guilty.” And your comment? “Nope….doesn’t count.” And you want me to believe that I may be losing my mind? For the rest of the history of justice, every single guilty plea means nothing….unless you want it to. How convenient.
