      Trump fell for a lie of the FBI. The FBI trapped an honest person b/c Flynn knows all of Obama’s dirty little secrets.

  2. Trump is a “narcissistic sociopath”, They both be charismatic and charming, unreliable, controlling, selfish, and dishonest. They both have a sense of entitlement and deny responsibility for their actions. They usually lack insight into their personality disorder, lack empathy, and lack emotional responsiveness, that is Trump

      @Rob Donaldson you are either a pathetic, brainless looser, or a Russian troll. No other choice makes sense.

      @SouthSide Chicago if the Russia thing is a hoax, why did the Trump campaign meet with a Russian attorney connected to the GRU (their CIA) in Trump Tower? Why did Trump openly call on Russia to find the Hillary emails? Why not say “Brazil, if you’re listening…”? Why did Trump insist that no other government officials sit in on his meetings with Putin, and later confiscated the translator’s notes? Why did Trump take Putin’s word in Helsinki, when all his own intelligence people told him the opposite. And why did Trump ignore the unanimous opinion of all the US intelligence agencies that the Russians attempted to influence the 2016 election in a massive and deliberate manner? Why, why, why? And on top of that, the White Sox are a crap team!

      @Gregory Von Dare Listen Greggy boy, all you have to do is read the paperwork that the DoJ released. I am 100% certain that you listen and actually believe the radical left wing media because every single one of those questions you just asked…they spoke about. Just read it! Why depend on the media when it’s right there in front of you? Laziness? Afraid of the truth?

      Obama was involved in the Flynn prosecution. It was revenge for Flynn’s stances on Israel and the Iran deal.

    • charlesvan13 | May 10, 2020 at 1:54 AM | Reply

      Bush never criticized Obama while in office. On the other hand, Obama actively subverted the Trump administration during the transition. He was behind the Flynn prosecution.

      It’s better than eating ice cream out of a fridge that nobody can afford, in the meantime Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are pushing forward with a massive fifth round of coronavirus relief legislation that could be their most far-reaching effort yet to address the economic fallout of the pandemic — and come with another price tag in the trillions.
      While the House is still technically on recess, Democratic leadership and committee chairs have been drafting their legislative laundry lists for the relief package that could rival the cost of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that passed in March, or exceed it.

    Flynn played his part in the coordinated conspiracy to obstruct justice, as described in volume 2 of the Mueller report. Now the instigator of that conspiracy rewards the pawn.

      5 8 20 Hey@Some Person, I read similar things & wasn’t sure how Judge Emmit Sullivan is going to handle the case. Also, the prosecutor, Brandon Van Grack quit, which I saw as a protest of the Justice Department. They’re basically traitors; Roger Stone/Flynn. Stay safe, keep calm, & be well. v

    • Andrew Mitchell- How did he obstruct justice to begin with?

    • Garry Miller | May 8, 2020 at 1:24 PM | Reply

      @Earl of Mar they would go after his son because he was also involved. Do you even know what Flynn was involved with? Dude was a foreign agent working as the national security advisor. He wanted to kidnap an American resident and send him to Turkey to probably be executed. I’ll repeat Flynn was a FOREIGN AGENT and Trump made him the national security advisor.

    • Virginia Tyree | May 8, 2020 at 1:35 PM | Reply

      5 8 20 Hey@Garry Miller, Agree, Flynn’s an agent. Also, I read his son is a conspiracy nut & was involved with the pizzagate fantasy; sexual abuse of childern in a nonexistent basement. A lunatic showed up wirh an automatic weapon & was arrested. Stay safe, keep calm, & be well. v

    Didn’t you fire him for lying??? Isn’t treason lying to the president?

    • Gregory Von Dare | May 9, 2020 at 10:21 AM | Reply

      Maureen: Treason is defined as : giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. But we all use the term to describe betrayal of our country. It’s close enough. Flynn the Traitor has committed treason if you consider that the cold war never really ended with the signing of a treaty or any such ceremony. Flynn collaborated with the Russians and the Turks while hiding this from the US government. Instead of draining the swamp, Trump has raised the water level to unknown heights.

    • Glad to see the president of the United States can do what he wants and get away with it!

      Fox News and a group of opportunist propagandists, have brainwashed them, (blatantly using the techniques of Joseph Goebbels), to the point that there are multiple examples of journalists showing Trump Supporters, just plain REFUSING to believe what they have actually seen and heard, with their own eyes and ears. It’s amazing to watch, they just mentally shut down and start repeating memes like “That’s Fake News” Or “He was just kidding (being sarcastic, satirical” or “that’s not what he meant to say”, or they just keep changing the subject over and over. “Well what about Hillary, Obama, Pelosi, etc,,,

    • Don’t forget the republican party. They support this.

  16. Flynn has lost his hero status, he’s almost as bad a liar as Trump. History will mark trumpy and not in a good way 😡😠😖.

    • Trump, McConnell and Bill Barr don’t care about history, they only care about power by any means. They all know they can do just about anything they want, who can stop them.
