Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty to Lying to the F.B.I. -- UPDATE


In what is a surprise to no one paying attention, Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the F.B.I. about conversations with the Russian ambassador last December during the presidential transition, bringing the special counsel’s investigation into the president’s inner circle. The retired lieutenant general has also promised “full cooperation” in the Russia investigation and, according to a confidant, is prepared to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians, initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria. Translation: Trump will call him a liar (like everyone else who doesn't play along with his delusional reality), Republicans will look the other way and Trump will be re-elected in a landslide in 2020 as Democrats nitpick whoever our candidate is for having said something in 1992 that we don't like in retrospect. 


Until Trump vetoes something Republicans want -- which he won't -- they will remain loyal


And here comes the pullback. Trump the president-elect will merely say he was trying to get a head start with Russia on defeating ISIS -- case closed.

If Flynn is already at work on Trump Jr and Kushner., do you really see this shirt pile lasting three more years.
