Flynn’s contact with the Russian diplomat was covering normal transition communications between an incoming administration and other administrations around the world. According to the FBI, the purpose was to find common ground on fighting ISIS. And this was after the election. Not before.
Like Martha Stewart, Flynn was charged with a process crime. He was not charged with anything to do with the purpose of the investigation. He was charged with lying, for giving conflicting accounts between what the FBI had him saying on wiretaps with a Russian diplomat, after the election, and his answers to questions about those conversations. Flynn was not charged with violation of the espionage act, which would have been the case if there was any there there to the claim that the Trump campaign made deals with “the Russians” to win the 2016 election. But he wasn’t.
The crime here is the “unmasking” of Flynn by the Obama administration in the first place. But that’s not the way the media will cover Flynn’s admission Friday.
The way the kids on The View see Flynn’s admission is demonstrative of just how sever Trump Derangement Syndrome is. To them, lying to the FBI about nothing related to the focus of the Trump/Russia collusion connection is, to Joy Behar, proof of a Trump/Russia collusion to beat Hillary Clinton at the 2016 election.
The election that was already over a month prior.
That the Left continues to criminalized political activity is a given. It’s part of their “resistance” designed to thwart everything the Trump administration wants to do.
For a glimpse of Trump Derangement Syndrome, just tune in to CNN or MSNBC for fifteen minutes. There you will find a panel discussion of how Trump is unhinged and out of control. They are as excited about how unfit and mentally deficient Trump is as Joy Behar is about Flynn’s admission. Then look at a press conference or news conference of Trump and see if you notice how unhinged and out-of-control he is. Between the two, it’s obvious that the insane ones are on the Left. Not in The White House.
