    Gonna be fun to pull these people back into court under threat of perjury later on..

    • ​@Mark bodman The Supreme Court ruled that, as a pardon carries an imputation of guilt and acceptance carries a confession.

      The DoJ dropped the case, the same one being run by Barr. The same DoJ that is attempting to defend Trump in his defamation suit by E. Jean Carrol? You’re attempting to cite that DoJ?

      What ever happened with
      “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!” –

    • @Instant karma you are correct, that’s exactly why Gen. Flynn plead guilty, they threatened to find charges on his son if he didn’t plead to lying . But get ready karma is about to reveal its truth .

    • @JohnPaul Jones Gen. Flynn lied about not lying let’s get it straight. This isn’t about the pardon, this is about the removal of the gag order . I think you got lost in the weeds somewhere.

    • @AClRCLEOFLlGHT absolutely correct , most of these folks don’t have a clue.

    • @Todd A McEwen “But get ready karma is about to reveal its truth” .
      and you know this for a certainty how?

  3. Now there is no gag order!!
    Watch ’em all run scared!!
    Justice is coming!!!!

      @JohnPaul Jones also. Why is it always the push of ‘Russian interference’ but let’s keep 100% silent about the Chinese interference that’s been plaguing these elections. Oh…wait…that’s right. Gotta keep silent when the interference is helping…the other guy…smh

    • @Car Rabbit so reality hurts?

      She used prisoners to fight forest fires for 10$ a day🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Trump pardons a Two Star decorated war hero that served his country his whole life and after DOJ dropped case and let me guess its whaaaaaaaaaaaaa the end of Democracy yet again.
      Osama Obama pardoned a known terrorist that blew up buildings and killed people. If that’s your version of Democracy i want no part of it.

    • @Darktolight Obama has a man wife? Not judging but I could have sworn he was with a strong intelligent black woman. Or just maybe you are deep down inside intimidated by her because you are a very weak man? That fact the you thought it was something to even mention shows us all what you are.

    • @Darktolight I dare to say this to a licensed psychiatrist… Please do it… Im begging you to 😅😅😅🤣🤣

  4. Flynn holds all the secrets…. He witnessed the corruption and the betrayal. There will be blood

    • @OC Vegas Property So Putin has had Trump and Flynn, I’m not surprised!

    • @Jake Vermeulem Get ready u radical leftist Hawaii HUSSAIN & Beijing Biden CROOKS—Gen Flynn is coming after ur lying corrupt butts. He’s loaded with a full pardon now, AND KNOWS UR CORRUPTION!!!!!

    • Trevor Phillips | November 26, 2020 at 6:41 PM | Reply

      The Dems have all the secrets lol. Mike Flynn was framed by the FBI to take down Trump. Talk about going really low.

    • Hey.. I liked that movie.. speaking of which.. you think Daniel Day Lewis is a Patriot? ✝️’Last of the Mohicans’ was EPIC. He is awesome actor.

    • @Jake Vermeulem – How would you like to get a nice, sweet Thanksgiving BITCHSLAP?😊

    Keep exposing all these trump plots to twist the law and do hold everybody involved accountable. Glenn Kirschner would make a great new Attorney General, and he will take it to the criminals for their many crimes and obstructions of justice.

  6. Doling out pardons is he? So Trump has conceded….he’s gotta start saving hides. He should step down so Pence can pardon him too hahaha.

  7. I love it when 21st century Tammany Hall crooks don’t their way.

      @Donna Whiteturkey I don’t take charity
      I was taught accepting charity is bad
      You don’t agree?

    • Donna Whiteturkey | November 26, 2020 at 6:43 PM | Reply

      @Scott Lancaster Scott, Trump knew how bad the virious was, back in February,. He should of pushed mask wearing, he didn’t. I don’t asking for help, I do what ever I can, on my own. But, come on Scott, think about it, these people lined up in cars, in food lines, have kids, they can’t by food. Do you have children? Would you sit in a food line to help your family?

      @Donna Whiteturkey there are no lack of jobs
      The virus would be gone if sick people stayed home
      I am healthy, if I stay away from people I won’t get sick
      I don’t wear a mask, I’m healthy
      Only infected people can spread infection
      I was sick in Feb-march, I did my part and stayed home

      @Scott Lancaster
      Many of the infections and deaths were preventable. DjT** did not respond to minimize covid’s impact on our country.
      His incompetence, his indifference, his lies are now part of the historical record.

      @Gaetano Vindigni like I said, which presidents do you blame for aids
      Which president do you blame for the Spanish flu?
      You really want to blame someone?
      How about China? How about blaming hospitals and doctors for not fixing this?
      Hospitals have billions of dollars to build buildings on campuses but no planned pandemic response?
      No ppe in storage for a pandemic?
      Isn’t sickness and disease their business? Aren’t they supposed to have supplies for nurses and doctors?
      The medical community got caught with their pants down
      The president is not a medical professional

  9. Another huge slice of a severely corrupt system! If someone is guilty, they are guilty! End of story – and their liberty.

    • @Martin Gary Rubes? (Trump supporters).

    • @JH RJ So now its Thanksgiving and Im Thankfull I never had to live in a Socialist Country. so Im off to see family and enjoy this $90 dollar bottle of 18 year old Single malt. Quick Question For Ya. How many lives have you made better?

    • @Martin Gary I would hope that I have enriched the lives of everyone I’ve come into contact with. There have, however, been some that were beyond help.
      Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your single malt – I hope it’s genuine Scotch.
      Be careful with your blood pressure.

    We all know this man is a disgrace. Disgrace to the uniform he wore. Sad day for America.

  11. Another overt criminal action. Bunkerbaby is doing his best to destroy democracy, law, justice, and decency.

  12. Donna Whiteturkey | November 26, 2020 at 11:08 AM | Reply

    The trolls r trolling MSNBC or it’d Quan, beware of the replies, many

  13. Obstruction of justice, pure and simple.

  14. Pardon Flynn like he’s America’s turkey 😆

  15. So Trump pardons the guy who said “they” were guilty of conspiring with the enemy?
    In essence , trying to pardon himself and deem all confirmed evidence a moot point?
    Someone will need to bring trump up on charges based on associated GUILT!

    Doling out pardons so the trail to himself is bound up in legal challenges.

    “ If I pardon you, you will keep quiet about me, Okay?”

      America’s bread and butter. Just like the western bloc “pardoned” america for profiting from the genocide in yemen. Apparently its only bad when hitler commits it, just not when america does.

    This would be a corrupt pardon and should be challenged and over-turned because of conflict of interest. This kind of dangerous precedence should be destroyed.

  19. He is no better than anyone else ,so is the persons that were involved in his corrupted behavior were charge and convicted, what make him any different ? he should pay for all his crimes. Punto.

  20. Flynn’s not a retired US Army three-star; he’s an admitted FELON….. Like hundreds of thousands of retired and veteran soldiers, I, as a Marine, have no respect for Flynn. He’s a grifter.
