Skip to comments.Flynn to Testify Against Trump [semi-satire]

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras advised admitted liar Gen. Michael Flynn "to fully cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller" and told him he can avoid substantial prison time "if and only if he provides substantial assistance in the prosecution of another person." Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about a conversation he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the post-election transition period following Donald Trump's victory over presidential rival Hillary Clinton.
Insiders are reporting that Flynn has told Mueller that "Trump told me to contact the Russians and have them set up the 'accidental' tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney-General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Airport in July 2016. Our thinking was that as a person with demonstrated poor impulse control, Clinton would be unable to pass up the opportunity to bribe or pressure Lynch into blocking any further investigations of his wife's negligent handling of classified materials in her personal emails."
"As it turned out, we were right," Flynn is reported to have told Mueller. "A subsequent Russian hack of FBI emails revealed that Clinton and Lynch did discuss a deal to suppress the investigation. An added bonus from this hack was the discovery that the Obama Administration misused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) communication intercept system to spy on the Trump campaign."
ABC's Brian Ross called Flynn's reported testimony "the 'smoking gun' that will bring down the Trump Administration. The scheme was diabolical. By exploiting Clinton's criminal vulnerability and natural desire to cover up any wrongdoing, the Trump campaign wove a web of such complexity that it completely thwarted the cover up and exposed the Obama Administration's covert efforts to listen-in on Trump and his supporters using a 'national security' ruse. The publication of the hacked emails was an invasion of privacy that deprived Secretary Clinton, President Obama, Director James Comey, and perhaps others of their constitutional right against self-incrimination. That Trump's actions were so far outside of the norms in our political system is a threat we should not tolerate. Thanks to the diligence of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the day when things get back to normal is now a little bit closer."

There, fixed it!
Truly diabolical. If only it was true.
I think the problem with Flynn is that he’s lied so often...to so many people...that you can’t really settle on anything he says as being true. Almost like Hillary, in a way.
as always, a little too close to the truth.
