Gen. Michael Flynn to Plead Guilty to Lying to FBI in Trump-Russia Witch Hunt
General Michael Flynn will plead guilty to lying to the FBI deep state operatives in the ongoing Trump witch hunt today.
Once again — this verdict has NOTHING TO DO with Trump-Russia collusion.
It’s just a way for the Democrat media and Deep State to erase an election and eliminate Donald Trump.
Flynn’s conversations to the Russian ambassador were not a crime.
Not disclosing this information to the corrupt FBI was his crime.
This is America today…
President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a retired army Lt. General, is expected to plead guilty Friday morning to lying to the FBI about his post-election discussions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.
A plea hearing for Flynn, the first Trump administration official charged in the ongoing Russia probe, has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in Washington, D.C. federal court, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office said.
Flynn is expected to plead guilty to a criminal information charging him with knowingly making materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements to FBI agents.
Specifically, Flynn is accused of falsely claiming that he had not asked Russia’s ambassador to the United States last Dec. 29 “to refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the United States had imposed against Russia that same day.”
Flynn also allegedly lied by telling the FBI “he did not recall the Russian Ambassador subsequently telling him that Russia had chosen to moderate its response to those sanctions as a result of his request,” the information says.
This is symbolic only. The indictment on Manafort and Flynn are not for collusion – and they were never going to be since 'collusion' is not a legal classification. These men are being prosecuted for the 'political crime' of Trump winning the presidency.
