Retired Lt. General Michael Flynn has agreed to testify that Donald J. Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians” during his campaign. After pleading guilty to one count of lying to the FBI about his communication with the Russian ambassador he now ready to name names. The Special Counsel made a plea agreement with Flynn this morning.
“My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country,” Flynn said. “I accept full responsibility for my actions.”
According to reports if Trump didn’t abandon Flynn during this tumultuous time, Flynn probably would have continued to lie for him. But with legal fees mounting he took a plea deal and things will begin to get extremely interesting.
This is huge, your National Security Advisor has plead guilty to lying to the FBI and is saying he was directed by you to contact the Russians, something Donald J. Trump has been vehemently denying.
Some are betting Trump will step down as opposed to being impeached for collusion or conspiracy. To that I say are we talking about a man who has been skating through sexual assault accusation for years, a man who has openly supported and made excuses for Nazis and white terrorists, and a man who denies making statements he was filmed saying. He’s a liar and crook that has gotten away with so much why would he concede now? Donald Trump is the true definition of white privilege and one thing we’ve learned over the years about white privilege is it won’t go down without a fight.
