#1 The one scalp Mueller has managed to collect and he doesn't want to close the deal? That's a bit curious.

Maybe he's not yet done with Flynn.

#6 If the source of the evidence or evidence itself is tainted, then anything gained from it is tainted as well. And the source for Mueller is looking less and less credible and more tainted every day.

Think of it this way: As the FBI/Justice/FISA fiasco comes unwound, Flynn case will come unwound as well - and with that, away goes anything Mueller has for a credible case against anyone.

#14 Martha Stewart Redux... Mueller couldn't get Flynn to roll over (evidently) and now it looks like he is hoping that if he just agrees not to charge the whole thing will go away.
My hope is that they can track the slime trail all the way back to Mueller and arrest him and his buddies. Karma and worth an extra big bowl of popcorn.

#15 Key here is, Flynn was no pal of Soetoro and the Klingon Deep State puppet masters. He knew far too much.

#16 Besoeker,
I have to agree that the reason the minions went after Flynn first was that he knew too much about what Zero and Shillary and Lynch and Comey were up to in the run up to the election...after all he was the head guy at NIA for a while and would have seen some juicy stuff with NSA vacuuming up everyone's cellphones and texting.

Yep, I bet somewhere in all of the witch hunt involving Flynn is a gag order on Flynn. To keep him from talking.

Exactly - they already ruined Flynn financially, so how does this change anything? To me, it doesn't.

#18 Rogue government operatives CAN be jointly and severally liable for their actions against a citizen. McCabe's pension and Strzok's home equity would be a good start to providing a cure for Flynn

#19 They 'took out' Petraeus and they took out Flynn. No general officer, aging Vermont socialist, or anyone else was going to compete with or impede the campaign of the Hildebeest.

Unfortunate circumstances always seem to befall those who might represent a threat to the Clinton's.

General Mike Flynn legal defense fund.... if you feel so inclined.

#21 I'm surprised the Dems have not called for the Special Council to be dissolved at this point. All it's accomplished has been to turn the spotlight on Dem criminality.

Since the Special Council was formed as the result of surveillance of Trump and team based on unmasking and a fake dossier to obtain a FISA warrant, the investigation ought to be tossed and anything coming from it (Flynn and others)--fruit of the poisoned tree.

Not sure why so many on here support Flynn. Flynn was in order:
1. An democrat Obama sycophant
2. Self promoter at the DIA...a place with so many wonderful tools that produces so little.
3. Remained a self promoter with the Flynn Group...who on here believes any retired three star is worth $500K for one consulting gig?
4. A leech opportunist sycophant that latched onto Trump's leg and started humping at the first opportunity. Eureka - Flynn is a Republican for the first time in his life!
5. A liar. Got fired for lying to the VP and prosecuted for lying to the FBI.

Flynn is an arrogant loser that lied to the command team when they needed the truth...he played the stoopid game and won his stoopid prize.

I am open for counter opinions...maybe I missed something somewhere where Flynn transformed into a martyr for the conservative cause...

#23 Tennessee,

Your laundry list makes the indictment/guilty plea of Flynn by the Mueller lynch mob even more curious.

#24 Sock, If LTG(R) Flynn didn't lie to the command team or to the FBI he would not suffer his current troubles.

Flynn is not a man of integrity.

#25 If Mueller conducted his investigation based upon data that was willfully distorted for what ever reason, and in the course of his investigated he convicted a man on a process crime based on that data, whether he knew about it or not,, that is a severe miscarriage of justice.

Like him or hate him, Flynn does not deserve to be convicted of a crime based on an investigation of a crime that the investigators knew was no crime at all.

#26 "I am open for counter opinions...maybe I missed something somewhere where Flynn transformed into a martyr for the conservative cause..."

The conservative cause is a Man and his Family should not be wiped out by the Federal Government under abuse of power and false accusations or entrapment.

This is where you get the Bundy thing and 45% of property confiscation cases in the US.

If he was not a Republican then, he may be now and he did chew through a bunch of Doctrine and did some solids for me in the past. Some of it right and wrong but he helped me through an Adjudication or two.

I do not want anyone on the Cross that does not belong there and he does not.

Badanov has a valid point, although if Flynn would have just told the truth he would have kept his job and avoided the hot seat.

newc, while Flynn may be competent, if you can't trust him or his motives then disaster will soon follow...and it did. I don't think he is one of us...he is/was for Flynn

I'm still not happy with the fake investigation tho.

#29 I dont trust Flynn. But, even you can agree there is an issue here bigger than that:

Its exceedingly wrong for Flynn or ANYONE to get railroaded by an out of control prosecutor who proceeded to try to "flip" him into another perjury (in order to "get" dirt on the Trump campaign) based on tainted "evidence" obtained in an unconstitutional politically partisan search abuse of the FISA system. Further worsening it, the basis report was apparently based on a political tissue of lies hatchet-job that was bought and paid for by the Clintons/DNC, which was used to trigger an investigation of their opponent, including the aforementioned (now revealed to be likely illegal) surveillance.

Doesnt matter who the victim is - its the seriousness and magnitude of this corruption that should be important to anyone that loves this country.

#33 Both Flynn and his deputy at DIA stayed in a static pi**ing contest with the DNI and Klingons over HUMINT collection in support of what used to be called the GWOT. I don't know the specifics of his credibility lag with the VP, or the details of his guilty plea.

Water under the bridge now, but had the administration kept the Flynn issue 'close hold,' we might be in a better position today.

#35 I don't have a firm opinion about Flynn one way or the other, and even if he's a lifelong Democrat, I do not necessarily agree with financially ruining someone based on trumped up charges. However, to the extent that the left has done that over the past decade or so to cake bakers and folks like Brendan Eich, do it to twice as many on their side until I see them fly a white flag of surrender.

I concur with you and newc on these points.

#39 There was an article on one of the political blogs last week or the week before in which it was stated that Flynn's "interview" by the FBI, Strzok and another agent, was an ambush. They appeared at the White House, unannounced, without an appointment and did not state to Flynn what the interview was about. He thought it was so innocuous that he did not legal counsel present, although it appears the White House counsel joined at some point.

Combine that with the revelation that the 302's were falsified and misrepresented the statements that Flynn made, shows that the entire episode was a hit job on Flynn and entrapment.

I still believe that the FBI did not want to have someone in the White House with knowledge of that the Zero regime was up to with regard to intel gathering...and who they were gathering it on.

Of course the phone call to the Russian Ambassador was completely legit because it was AFTER the election and technically part of the transition of power, not BEFORE as often miss-stated, deliberately by the leftist media.
