According to court documents released by Robert Mueller, Flynn is charged with lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation:

“On or about January 24, 2017, defendant MICHAEL T. FLYNN did willfully and knowingly make materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States.”

Here’s what we know so far:

  • COURT FILING SAYS FLYNN FALSELY STATED HE DID NOT ASK RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR TO REFRAIN FROM ESCALATING SITUATION AFTER U.S. HAD IMPOSED SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA
  • COURT FILING SAYS FLYNN FALSELY STATED HE DID NOT RECALL THAT RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR TOLD HIM RUSSIA HAD CHOSEN TO MODERATE ITS RESPONSE TO U.S. SANCTIONS AS A RESULT OF HIS REQUEST
  • COURT FILING SAYS FLYNN FALSELY STATED THAT HE DID NOT ASK RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR TO DELAY VOTE ON PENDING UN SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION AND THAT AMBASSADOR NEVER DESCRIBED RUSSIA’S RESPONSE TO HIS REQUEST
  • FEDERAL PROSECUTORS SAY FLYNN SPOKE WITH SENIOR MEMBERS OF TRUMP’S TRANSITION TEAM ABOUT HIS CONVERSATIONS WITH RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR REGARDING U.S. SANCTIONS
  • PROSECUTORS SAY FLYNN SPOKE WITH A ‘SENIOR OFFICIAL’ OF TRUMP’S TRANSITION TEAM WHO WAS AT MAR-A-LAGO RESORT IN DEC 2016 TO DISCUSS WHAT TO COMMUNICATE TO RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR
  • PROSECUTORS SAY FLYNN WAS DIRECTED BY ‘A VERY SENIOR MEMBER’ OF TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM TO POLL COUNTRIES AHEAD OF UN VOTE IN DEC 2016
  • PROSECUTORS SAY FLYNN WAS TOLD BY THE SENIOR MEMBER OF TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM TO REACH OUT TO OTHER COUNTRIES TO INFLUENCE THE UN VOTE TO DELAY OR DEFEAT THE RESOLUTION

Flynn Prepared To Testify Against Trump

 

The MSM says that Flynn promised “full cooperation to the Mueller team” and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.” Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about a conversation with the Russian ambassador last December.

Fact: Flynn’s conversations to the Russian ambassador were not a crime.

Fact: Not disclosing this information to the corrupt FBI was his crime. Flynn was fired by Trump for this exact lie.

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.

This is exactly how they do it when no real crimes are committed.

Nobody can recall with 100% accuracy what was said in every meeting, months or years before. And if they are interviewed multiple times, everybody will eventually make a contradictory statement about something that happened a long time ago. Then the criminal prosecutors pounce. And the “lies” can be about absolutely nothing, like Flynn’s and Scooter Libby’s.

This kind of prosecution is the REAL CRIME. Mueller should go to jail for this (which is actually the least of what that swamp creature has done in his life).
