“Speculation of Flynn now cooperating with Mueller’s investigation stirred in recent days due to reports that Flynn had pulled out of a join defense agreement or common interest arrangement to share information with other subjects of the investigation,” said Limbaugh
“But there is nothing unusual about that. Once again, the lack of understanding by the drive-by media reporters — oh — Flynn’s pulling out of the joint agreement to share information, that means he’s getting ready to flip.”
“No, it meant he was getting ready to make a deal with the prosecutor, as such, it becomes unethical for the two lawyers or teams to communicate with each other when one of the people involved is going to cop a plea,” Limbaugh said.
“There was nothing unusual about this, and didn’t mean anything other than Flynn was getting close to make a deal,”
Limbaugh then expertly explains why Flynn’s guilty plea is nowhere near are damaging as the mainstream media would like people to believe.
“This is a key point now,” Limbaugh begins, “When the prosecutor, Mueller, has a cooperator, Flynn, who was an accomplice in a major criminal scheme — a cooperator, Flynn, is made to plead guilty to the scheme.”
“This is critical because pleading guilty to the scheme proves the existence of a criminal conspiracy.”
“And then,” Limbaugh added, “when the perp allocutes, like tells the judge what he did, the accomplice, Flynn, explains the scheme and the actions taken by himself and his co-conspirators to carry out the scheme.”
“This goes a long way to proving the case.”
“You have a perp pleading guilty to a scheme that he was part of and then explains the scheme and all the other people involved.”
Arriving to his main point, Limbaugh says “That’s not what happened here today!”
“Flynn did not plead guilty to a scheme!”
“He pleaded guilty to a process crime.”
“Mueller does not have proof of a scheme,” said Limbaugh.
The talk show host then concludes the segment by saying the Flynn’s plea ultimately shows Mueller have no proof of collusion between the Trump team and Russia.
On Friday, Michael Flynn plead guilty to lying to FBI agents about making contact with Russian Ambassador Kislyak during the transition period.
