      What happened to Russian collusion? That right, you morons bought it hook line and sinker, only for it to be shown nothing was there.

      @Jack Soxman common sense should tell you that your comment makes no sense if the FEDS said Flynn did nothing wrong…then why was Flynn charged by…..wait for it……..the FEDS tf you people. …

    • ​@Hector Perez The guy confessed in a written statement under oath of his own free will and technicalities couldn’t save him because the appeals court allowed the confession to stand so to argue he was setup is far fetched.

  3. Accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt.

    • @Brian I don’t think you can say that Flynn withdrew his guilty pleas; he attempted to withdraw them, but that is up the judge and hasn’t been decided yet (and likely never will be). I also doubt that Flynn’s pardon request received any significant substantive review before Trump granted it. Any review it received was almost certainly perfunctory with the result a foregone conclusion. I don’t recall Trump ever declaring Flynn innocent as opposed to unfairly prosecuted. Trump would have no basis for doing so in view of Flynn’s guilty pleas. Clearly Flynn was guilty of lying; the only question is whether the FBI unfairly or wrongly pursued him, so to speak. Finally I am not aware that a conviction is a prerequisite to a presidential pardon. Has something changed since President Ford pardoned Nixon?

    • @Star Dust He was forced to plead guilty. Are you stupid?

    • @Jules Nagbunga I’d agree. Except you don’t become a billionaire without knowing a few tricks. How many billionaire lawyers do you see. Including Barack Hussain bin Obama! And the constitution which is bigger then you n me says the president can pardon people.. your opinions don’t really matter is all

    • @Dale Hartley Fascist (Mirriam-Webster): a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

      1) Trump sees the importance of the nation, but not at the loss of personal rights of the individual. This should not to be confused with wanting to see the nation prosper – hopefully every President wants that. Trump has denounced white supremacy and racism far more than any other President in history.

      2) Trump stands for a decentralized, non-autocratic government. He pushed for states rights and did not use federal powers to stop riots or impose nationwide covid actions.

      3) Trump is not dictatorial even within his own Cabinet. He has not taken any action to overcome state power or consolidate state military capacity. When facing the options for using the Defense Production Act or the Insurrection Act, he did not do so, even with clear and present dangers. He preferred states request assistance and immediately withdrew federal forces when no longer required.

      4) Trump has reduced, not increased economic and social regimentation. He reduced federal regulations significantly and has even reduced taxes.

      5) Trump has “enjoyed” the most opposition of any President, especially from the media. He has squashed literally zero media in spite of that.

      Trump is not fascist in the slightest. The definition above describes socialist regimes perfectly.

    • @Marie Smith do you really believe a military general should go to jail for lying to FBI? Especially the kind of FBI we’ve been seeing lately??
      It’s also been proven the FBI acted against Flynn’s constitutional rights but because he’s supports Trump he doesn’t get a fair due process and he’s a fucking general. Maybe the next general who gets fucked over by the FBI won’t be do kind and they are in charge of whole military bases that act on their orders!

  4. So, he’s pardoning turkeys.

  5. The Swamp protecting the Swamp

    • @T Boned Obama did not appoint but a few judges. Moscow Mitch stonewalled all the rest and kept vacant until last 3 years.

    • Please do not call current cess pool a swamp.

    • Moh
      yeshttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8J

    • @Geo78 There still exist lots of corrupt judges who form part of the swamp. It is these judges who refuse to look at the facts, based on their marching orders from their handlers. You will learn soon enough the depth and breadth of the voter fraud.

    • @T Boned
      Exactly! And people also don’t want to admit that it was Obama that caused 9/11 as well. The deep state and libtards stole this election because they’re afraid of Trump. Trump is the only president we have ever had that has been fully transparent and truly put America first. Its unbelievable that these people cannot see this! Hes literally the best President we have ever had, but because hes racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, prejudiced, and sexist, the libs want to make it seem like hes a bad person. WE ALL KNOW that whites are the superior race. Let’s stop pretending that we care about minorities. Trump was the first modern President to openly stand for the white nationalists and neo-natzi movement! Let’s roll this back to Jim Crow era. That’s the last time America was great! Without Trump, minorities might begin getting equal treatment and that is NOT what MAGA stands for. We stand to oppress minorities. We stand to keep women in the kitchen. We stand to keep America white a beautiful. Police needs to keep on beating those minorities!Trump and the KKK 2020!

      This is exactly how dumb your cult looks T Boned. Get over it and move on. Go back to Qanon with your conspiracy theories you moron.

  8. The new President can use some national security measures to put them back in some hole?

  9. Thought Trump was going to Drain the Swamp!!!😂😂🤢

  10. “Law and order” for everyone but themselves… Pathetic little $hits

    • @R Thomas 10 different Presidents.. WOW… good so you remember when Democrat Al Gore wouldn’t accept the election results, contested and sued in the US Supreme Court.. and in 2016 when people were trying to bribe the electoral college to not vote for Trump. You will also get your popcorn ready for when the Supreme Court decides this election. I was saying from mid October this won’t get decided by the electoral college and the Supreme Court would have to get involved.

    • @GO CAPS no.. if Biden ends up President.. Flynn is done in politics. Watch the movie “The Plot against The President” if it still on Netflix. Obama hates Flynn because Flynn called him a moron because Obama thought when he killed Bin Laden there would be no more terrorism. ISIS firmed the next day.

    • @Think Big a few hundred votes in one state not millions of votes… this election was a blowout! It’s time to heal from the hatred and division brought on by Trump… it’s over… let it go and enjoy life! Stay safe ✌️😷

    • @R Thomas read the constitution and read about how Rutherford Hayes became President. It is NOT over. Get your popcorn ready and you stay safe as well.

    • @Think Big who care black people betrayer OBAMA HUMAN TRASH…

  11. Helping the enemy used to be called treason. Now it’s just called being a Republican.

    • @Kevin Reagan cnn.exe

    • @ZeroMass are you having a stroke? Are you ok?

    • ​@Honezt earthling brain washing takes time lmao…. who have you heard of the longest? CNN, thats right XD all corrupt other medias say the same bs. why did the truth not trend until now( hell its always been low key trending by the people with a real, not brainwashed brain) theres evidence! the truth is so obvious its impossible to not see the evidence. America will either wake up or be brainwashed. scary times….scary times…

    • @Kevin Reagan keep your sexual advances at Bay, fruity . I’m not interested.

    • @ZeroMass 😂 watch out, tinfoil hat, your projection is showing

  12. So much for being “The Law and Order” President…now it is the “Lawlessly Disordered Faux President”…
    Nice legacy…

    I hope Flynn realizes that accepting a pardon means admitting guilt and that he can no longer plead the Fifth in the future should an investigation into Trump’s corruption is launched. Presidential pardons are a double edged sword!

  14. America, where criminals get pardoned by another criminal.

  15. And he is getting away with that?! Unbelievable

    *For a president who claims he supports “law and order” he just excused a guy who broke the law for lying under oath to the FBI*

  17. “Rule of law.” RIIIIGGGHHTT, that’s a good one. Almost made me laugh. Lying crooks. 🤥😑

    “It is my Great Honor to announce …” Is this something to be proud of? How the hell is this a great honor? Shame, shame, shame, shame on you!

    Joe Biden: “it’s not about punishing China.” Noticed that little comment never got media attention. Also where’s today’s election hearing? 🤣
