Russia Probe

Mueller Says Flynn's Been Cooperative with Russian Investigation, Asks for Light Sentence

Snitches get a slap on the wrist sometimes.

Michael Flynn, the former national security advisor to President Donald Trump, has provided so much assistance to the Department of Justice's investigations that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is recommending a light sentence for Flynn for lying to the FBI about his connections with Russia.

Flynn has previously pleaded guilty to concealing conversations with a Russian ambassador in December 2016 about responses to U.S. sanctions against Russia. He also concealed ties with the government of Turkey and its campaign to influence public opinion to lay the blame on a failed coup attempt there on cleric Fethullah Gulen. All of this was part of an attempt to extradite Gulen from the United States to Turkey.

According to a sentencing memo released last night from Mueller's office, Flynn has since been extremely cooperative with the federal government, participating in 19 separate interviews for multiple ongoing investigations. And because the investigations are ongoing, much of the explanation of the recommendation is redacted. But Flynn's cooperation is valuable enough that Mueller has recommended a sentence on the "low end of the guideline range"—including the possibility of no prison sentence at all. The recommended guideline range for a sentence for Flynn's crime is from zero to six months.

There will be a lot of overanalysis of what these memos mean (check out this almost comically absurd megaparsing of a sentence about holding senior government leaders to the "highest of standards," as though Mueller's using a sentencing memo to essentially subtweet Trump).

There are a couple of things worth noting in the redacted sections. First, a whole chunk of redacted text details Flynn's assistance in an investigation wholly unconnected to the attempt to determine the extent of Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and whether anybody in Trump's campaign assisted. This criminal investigation does not appear to be part of Mueller's work. We don't know what it is because it's completely redacted, but it could be connected to Flynn's ties with Turkey and any potential investigation about their efforts to get at Gulen. Regardless, contextually, that section is very clearly not about the Russian investigation.

But in the section of the Russian investigation, there are parts also redacted that describe useful assistance on something that appears to be unconnected to the stuff about Flynn that we already know. There are several paragraphs blacked out about information that is above and beyond his conversations with the Russian ambassador that fateful December.

There's not a whole lot here, but then people shouldn't have been expecting a whole lot here, and perhaps people should not be either overly excited nor overly dismissive of the memo's contents. The real fireworks may be coming on Friday, though. That's when Mueller is expected to release some of the details as to the lies Paul Manafort has been accused of feeding the FBI even after he agreed to cooperate as part of a plea deal. The lies may be connected to the Russian investigation, but given the extent of the charges and tax fraud Manafort has been convicted of, it could be a completely unrelated matter.

  1. Trump’s going down this time, for sure.

    1. Friday at the latest.

    2. I expect Putin’s Puppet to be out of office at some point in the second half of 2019.

      Then, if we’re lucky, we’ll get President Hillary Clinton like we should have had all along.

      1. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

        That article was a fucking riot. The funniest part was the link to another article:

        Related: Hillary Clinton losing to Trump was like Jesus’s crucifixion

        Yep, apparently these dipshits thought that Queen Hillary’s failure to ascend to her rightful place on the throne was the equivalent of Jesus being crucified for all mankind’s sins.

        1. In your depiction, are the dipshits the ones who thought Hillary should be president or the ones who (claim to) believe fairy tales are true?

    3. Going down on Putin?

      1. He’d have to if Putin were to request it.

        1. Why would Trump do something that Hillary has already done?

          Its why the presidency is perfect for Trump. Hillary never did that.

    4. Any second now!

  2. Trump’s presidency is what Bill Clinton’s should have been like, if every single journalist in the country wasn’t a Democrat.

    In 1996, Chinese nationals were caught illegally funneling millions into Democrat campaigns, and it involved some very close associates of Al Gore. Clinton refused to appoint an independent counsel despite his FBI director demanding one. We never got to te bottom of it. There was far more evidence of “collusion” between a hostile foreign government and American politicians there than here, yet nobody even remembers it happening.

    1. I think what the Clinton foundation did dwarfed the Chinese campaign funding scandal.

      1. I agree. The foundation was getting “gifts” from theocratic dictators WHILE Hillary was Secretary of State!

        1. Gifts from corporations facing State Dept. sanctions too.

              1. FAKE FAKENESS

                1. FAKE NEWSY FAKENESS ALL THE WAY DOWN

      2. I think what the Clinton foundation did dwarfed the Chinese campaign funding scandal.

        Probably by at least an order of magnitude.

    2. Dont forget the Chinese Intel community successfully infiltrated Diane Feinstein’s staff as a driver.

      Lefties dismiss this, but why would the Chinese spend time and money to plant a driver on an Intelligence Senate Committee member?

      Because they conduct business in their car.

      1. Why would the Chinese need to spy on Feinstein? I thought it was established she was squarely on their side in the 90s.

        1. To double check that the information she was giving them is accurate.

        2. To get it firsthand from people talking to Feinstein and did not know that they were being listened to by Chinese spies?

      2. I was trying to come up with the world’s most offensive “Driving Miss Daisy” joke, but I figured the Asian Students Association would kick me offstage.

        1. Oh come on, none of us are even allowed in most buildings let alone on stages.

      3. Feinstein must have been in on it. Who in their right mind would hire an oriental driver?

  3. How the fuck can people think Trump is a bumbling idiot who can’t keep his mouth shut for like 10 seconds and also think he’s capable of keeping up a secret relationship with putin. If their was true blue collusion Trump would have already bragged about how great his and putin’s relationship is and pointed to the collusion as proof of his prowess as a deal maker and leader.

    1. To Lefties, it’s fantasy or admitting Hillary lost because she was a scumbag who deserved to lose the election.

      1. Hillary won by 3 million votes. She got more votes than any white male candidate in history. And she deserved every one of them since she was the most qualified candidate in history.

        1. She got more votes than any white male candidate in history.

          LOL, good one. In fact, she even got more votes than George Washington in both of his elections!

          1. LOL, bad one, “in history.” Deal with it.

            Nearly 10 million voted against Trump. He set a new record on percentage of ANTI votes (voted against Hillary, not for Trump), And won the Electoral College by fewer than 39,000 voters, in three states combined., after getting the nomination with 37% of the GOP votes,

            He then inherited the longest recovery ever for an incoming President, 7th year, from Obama, who had inherited the 2nd worst recession since the 1930s. Yet, Trump has already added more new 8-year debt than Obama did AFTER 8 years. and wants even more debt that our children and grandchildren never voted for, Also, the first President to ever increase the deficit by over 50% in one year, during a recovery.

            Hence, a blue wave, the biggest since Watergate.

            1. So, you’re saying we can safely blame Hillary for Trump. Good one, sock.

              1. Read it again, shoe. Or find a 12-year-old to explain it.

                1. If a record number of people voted for Trump purely to vote against Hillary, than Trump would not have won if Hillary had not been the DNC candidate. Try again Hihn.

                  1. BLEW IT AGAIN! (sneer)
                    Depends how large the record is … WHICH YOU DO NOT KNOW
                    And how many of them were in his tiny victory margin, 39,000 voters,
                    You ignored the other deciding factors, now twice.

                    And goobers ALWAYS use the Hihn delusion when they’ve humiliated themselves.

                    For any other whiny retards, the anti votes were nationwide. Among the 39,000, in only 3 states combined, the number COULD have been anywhere between 0-39,000.

                    Anything else?

                    (This is why it’s so easy for Trump to manipulate his base!)

                    1. Yes Virginia, there is a real Arthur Spooner.

                    2. I feel guilty ridiculing the mentally handicapped, but he’s been stalking me down the page with non-stop assaults.

        2. Reel it in a bit. This is where we see the narrow-chested libertarian behind the curtain rod.

        3. OBL is the type of guy to always spend the night after successful completion of the affirmative consent form.

    2. If their was true blue collusion

      We have absolute, undeniable proof that Don Jr. KNOWINGLY conspired with the Russian governmen (lol)

      Trump totally misled the American people on the purpose of the meeting and, when he got caught, claimed he had no advance knowledge of it. If he did know, and it’s provable, he’d a co-conspirator in treasonous activity.

      “Conspiring” means PLANNING together. Junior released the emails PLANNING the meeting, KNOWING it was on behalf of the Russian government, to help elect his father,

      Wait for it ….

      Russian invitation to Donald Jr.
      The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

      This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump ? helped along by Aras and Emin.
      Source: Donald Trump Jr’s own Twitter feed!!!

      LOCK THEM UP!

      1. Jesus. Take these, please.

        1. Whiners cannot stand absolute proof.
          They go childish with hissy fits.

          1. It’s big of you to admit your failings like that.

            1. Whiners cannot stand absolute proof.
              They go childish with hissy fits.

      2. Hihn – Nolan = 0

        1. Whiners cannot stand absolute proof.
          They go childish with hissy fits. And diversions.

          Baculum ALONE = -20

      3. And Hillary Clinton, through a law firm, hired a former British spy to collude with the Russians to get dirt on her opponent while taking donations from god-knows-where. Why the selective outrage?

        Take your meds!

        1. (laughing) Spies collude with their targets!!!! Who knew
          Losers DENY absolute proof. And virtually all facts that are in-com-veeeeeeeeeeeen-yent.

          How many, in severe denial, have I outed so far?

          1. Well, I do agree that you are probably a loser since there is indeed absolute proof of Hillary’s ‘collusion’ when using the Trump standard, which you deny simply by assertion. Adorable.

            If there’s ‘absolute proof’ of Trump’s ‘collusion’ you might try explaining how it could be that he is not only still in office but that the investigation is looking like it could take his entire first term as President to get such bad evidence that it hasn’t resulted in an impeachment yet?

            It must be because the entire bureaucracy is friendly to Trump, despite all appearances to the contrary eh?

            I’m no fan of Trump, but I’m also not a patent lunatic like you.

            1. WHAT SPIES DO IS NOT CALLED COLLUSION! … WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE “SPYING”

              If there’s ‘absolute proof’ of Trump’s ‘collusion’

              I LINKED TO ABSOLUTE PROOF.

              you might try explaining how it could be that he is not only still in office

              THE INVESTIGATION IS NOT COMPLETE!!

              to get such bad evidence that it hasn’t resulted in an impeachment yet?

              IT’S NOT FINISHED YET.

              WHY DO ALL YOU GOOBERS CLAIM TO KNOW WHAT MUELLER HAS OR DOES NOT HAVE?
              HIS BAD EVIDENCE HAS FIVE CONVICTIONS OR GUILTY PLEAS … OVER 30 INDICTMENTS ISSUED BY A GRAND JURY … AND OVER 100 CONTACTS WITH RUSSIA BY TRUMP’S TEAMS, WHICH HE SAID WERE ZERO.

              Can you hear me NOW????

              (Will he continue making an ever-larger fool of himself?)

              Typical Trumpster?


              1. WHAT SPIES DO IS NOT CALLED COLLUSION! … WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE “SPYING”

                So, in your view MI-6 spies report to Hillary Clinton? An interesting take. Care to double down?

      4. So why doesn’t the FBI just charge him, and dispense with Mueller burning through millions of taxpayer dough?

        1. You claim to know what Mueller has and doesn’t have.

          Ignore incon-veeeeeeeeeeeen-yent facts like 5 convictions and guilty pleas … over 30 indictments issued by an independent grand jury … and over 100 contacts between Russia and Trump associates.

          So … tell us what was in the redacted portions of the Flynn filing,
          And convince us that you’re not just another Trumpian bullshitter

      5. I hardly think that Don Jr’s e-mails are “ABSOLUTE PROOF” of anything.

        Gladstone (not a russian) approached Don Jr with possible dirt on Hillary (allegedly from a russian source). Fine.

        Jr’s reply: “Really? Hmm.. I might have to get back to you on that.” That’s it.

        Which is part of why he posted it (and never bothered to take it down), and why IIRC, Trump tweeted about it at the time (“Crooked Hillary”, etc)

        There is no evidence or proof of any meeting taking place in the e-mails, and no evidence or proof of any meeting with russians ever being scheduled or having taken place.

        If any info was exchanged, don’t you think the Trumps would have used it against Hillary?
        Further, any actual dirt on Hillary’s dealings with russians from the russians themselves that the Trumps “may” have gotten, would simply be ignored if they tried to use it- because, as we’ve seen, no one seems cares to about that.

        Also, if the e-mails were “ABSOLUTE PROOF” as you seem to think, don’t you think the FBI would’ve had it removed from twitter a long time ago?

        As far as anything else, who knows? I don’t give a fuck about any politicians – they’re ALL crooked.

        1. Jr’s reply: “Really? Hmm.. I might have to get back to you on that.” That’s it.

          I link to the absolute proof. You babble nonsense.

          One more time for Trump’s bullshit posse

          Trump totally misled the American people on the purpose of the meeting and, when he got caught, claimed he had no advance knowledge of it.

          If he did, that makes him a co-conspirator in treasonous activity.

          “Conspiring” means PLANNING together. Junior released the emails PLANNING the meeting, KNOWING it was on behalf of the Russian government, to help elect his father, AND YOU DENY THE MEETING EVER HAPPENED!!! OMFG

          Wait for it ….

          Russian invitation to Donald Jr.
          The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

          LOCK THEM UP!

          OR … Junior is undeniably guilty. Will his father allow his son to spend the rest of his life in prison. Is Trump THAT evil?

  4. This is what we worry about? All Mueller has been doing is setting perjury traps, when they go off he tries to get the person caught in the trap to say something anything about Trump.

    Meanwhile ignoring actual Hillary/DNC /Russian collusion. And collusion sounds a lot like campaigning. If its illegal he should’t be ignoring the Ds. If its not just quit seriously.

    1. They use a different yard stick to measure ‘collusion’ when talking about Trump and Clinton, and it’s obvious to anyone with critical thinking. One can thusly infer that most Americans, and possibly most humans, do not possess critical thinking.

      1. You just proved your own lack, to any knowledgeable and informed adult.

        1. I’d like to hear how getting information on political enemies from the Krelin isn’t collusion using the measures applied to Trump, but then again you’re a sock puppet for a lunatic so really it’s mostly for my own personal entertainment that I ask.

          1. You repeated the same massive blunder twice! So far.
            And REFUSE the absolute proof of Don Jr knowingly conspiring with the Russian government.

            Now you don’t know what a SPY is! One more time. What spies do with their targets is NOT collusion.
            And collusion is not a crime. Junior’s conspiracy is.

            (Why do goobers resort to sock puppet delusions when they’ve lost on the issue? Even if true, how in the fuck is a sock puppet even relevant? To anything?

            What’s the price of tea in China?

            1. You’re so unhinged you literally don’t even understand my point, and continue to publicly masturbate to ‘absolute proof’ that, while it’s on open display to literally anyone in the world, has still not ended up with an impeachment.

              The reason why we call you a sock is because we literally all know that you are a sock. You and Hihn are the same person. And even Hihn is a sock, so it’s really anyone’s guess what asylum you escaped from.

              As far as I know, Steele is not a spy nor was he a spy at the time he bought information from the Russian government. For the express purpose of giving that information to Hillary Clinton. To influence the election.

              Moron. Note that I don’t even think what Hillary did was collusion. What I’m saying is that if you applied the standard being used for Trump to have committed ‘collusion’ (notably not an actual crime anyway) that she would be guilty.

              That’s what happens when you start an inquisition. Oh, and by the by what was the criminal statute used to appoint a special prosecutor again? Or do you even understand the question or why it might be important?

              1. ANOTHER infantile hissy fit!
                (smirk

    2. Meanwhile ignoring actual Hillary/DNC /Russian collusion

      (lol) prove it.

      Don Jr’s own Twitter feed has absolute proof that he knowingly conspired with the Russian government, who wanted to sabotage Hillary to help Trump.

      The retard actually posted that proof himself! Versus the delusional ranting of Tucker Carlson. Alex Jones and the Orange God,

      1. It’s already been proven, in fact it’s the evidence used to try and prove that Trump did the colluding. No one seriously denies that the Clinton campaign and the DNC bought information off Steele that was literally provided by the Russian government. If they had that kind of proof regarding Trump for doing the same thing he would likely be impeached by now.

        1. It’s already been proven,

          (smirk) Prove it!

          No one seriously denies that the Clinton campaign and the DNC bought information off Steele that was literally provided by the Russian government

          This is your third use of the same fuckup,. What spies do to their targets is NOT called collusion!!!! And collusion is NOT a crime. Note even a legal term!

          While you reject ACTUAL proof that Donald Jr knowingly conspired with the Russian government, at the Trump Tower meeting Trump Sr LIED ABOUT.

          Since you have no idea what prof is, that link is one example.

          1. Steele was not and is not a spy. That’s why literally everyone in the world refers to him as an ex-spy. He was an ex-spy at the time he working for Fusion GPS. He was an ex-spy when he was hired to go dig up dirt, and buy dirt, off Russian officials.

            Sure, maybe he was still a spy. Maybe. But that would run counter to every scrap of information that is currently public and is utterly indefensible with any evidence you’d care to cite.


          2. And collusion is NOT a crime. Note even a legal term!

            LOL, so Trump is innocent after all. Way to torpedo your own battleship genius.

            1. HOW FUCKING STUPID CAN HE GET!

              And collusion is NOT a crime. Note even a legal term!

              LOL, so Trump is innocent after all.

              (pees pants laughing) YOU REFUSE PROOF OF CONSPIRACY BY DON JR, AND KEEP SWITCHING TO NEW DIVERSIONS

              Way to torpedo your own battleship genius.

              COLLUSION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MUELLER’S APPOINTMENT.

              1. As you yourself have said, it can’t be proof of conspiracy because the investigation isn’t over yet.

                You should probably stop pissing yourself though. It’s not making you look any saner than your bat shit rambling.

                1. As you yourself have said, it can’t be proof of conspiracy because the investigation isn’t over yet

                  Fucking liar?
                  Or hopelessly retarded?.


              2. COLLUSION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MUELLER’S APPOINTMENT.

                You yourself mentioned this isn’t a crime, so what was the criminal statute used to justify the appointment of a special council with the broadest mandate ever in American history?

                1. Prove it

                  FAIL
                  Full of shot babble.

                2. what was the criminal statute used to justify the appointment of a special council with the broadest mandate ever in American history?

                  ADMITS HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT THE MUELLER APPOINTMENT LETTER.

                  More wacky bullshit on the broadest mandate.

                  MORE WACKY/IRRELEVANT TRUMPTARD QUESTIONS

                  CHALLENGED TO “PROVE IT” … FOUR DIVERSIONS/FAILS.

                  That’s how zealots work. Prove one lie as bullshit they keep adding more useless nonsense

                  Stop all the diversions and evasions … You were called out, and challenged to PROVE IT.

  5. So, why would Mueller request no jail time for a co-conspirator to help Russians steal election 2016?

    Because it did not happen.

    I saw this Mueller sentencing report last night and laughed my ass off.

    The Lefties are crying today but have to support Mueller in his decisions because they put all their balls in Mueller’s ball sack.

    The sum of Mueller’s failure is pleas for perjury traps and tax evasion by some Washington insiders during the Obama administration period. Including Flynn who Obama picked for DIA director.

    1. they put all their balls in Mueller’s ball sack.
      So, Mueller cut a hole into his scrotum, and the ignoramuses of liberal persuasion did the same, but they subsequently dumped their testes into Mueller’s spunk factory. This makes sense, but what did the women do? Did they deposit their eggs into Mueller’s sack too?
      These questions must be answered.

      1. You cant tell me that Hillary Clinton does not have balls that can be added to the sack.

        She wears underwear with dick holes in them for a reason.

        1. But I said, “women.” Naturally this precludes hill-dog’s inclusion.

          1. What did Mueller end up doing in your dimension?

            1. Probably practicing law somewhere. The FBI was disbanded.

              1. If people would only stop practicing law and actually start doing it, we might have a more just world.

                1. But Chipper, a lot of laws are shit.

                  1. True that.

    2. So, why would Mueller request no jail time for a co-conspirator to help Russians steal election 2016?
      Because it did not happen.

      Your abject ignorance of the criminal justice system is equal to your level of Trumptroller.

      1) Nobody makes a plea bargain, unless they believe they will be convicted of a crime. We learn this in high school.
      2) If nothing else, we know Flynn conspired with the Russian ambassador AFTER the election.
      3) Flynn participated in 19 separate interviews on … nothing?
      4) We know he gave enough proof that Mueller has issued (in effect) a pardon for severe guilt and conspiracy. Flynn kept the deal, as we also learned in high school.

      Yet, Trump trolls have always known what Mueller has and doesn’t have, when nobody else outside the investigation knows because America’s greatest liar says so. NOW lc1789 even knows what is contained in all the redacted portions of the Flint filing!!

      Nobody believes these Trumsters, and they expect to persuade anyone. They give motivational pep talks to keep each other from giving up. “Keep the faith,” Trump did tell us they’d lie to defend him of even murder, so this is nothing by comparison.

      Fairy tales CAN come true, It CAN happen for you! If you BELEEB!

      1. 1 – The comment of someone who is apparently unaware of people pleading down all the time, even when innocent.

        2 – Is there a point where the administration is allowed to talk to Russia?

        3 – Fishing expedition. You can’t investigate for 18 months and not have any scalps to show for it. See Bill Clinton perjury over BJ’s and Scooter Libby taking the fall when everyone knew it wasn’t him.

        4 – Mueller is now also a judge and an elected executive with pardon powers?

        1. You can’t investigate for 18 months and not have any scalps to show for it.

          You cannot say anything so totally ignorant without totally humiliating yourself. Tell us how you know what Mueller has or does not have

          Mueller is now also a judge and an elected executive with pardon powers.

          Are you 12 years old?
          TOTALLY ignorant of the story AND the process,
          This is what Mueller RECOMMENDS to the judge, for a crime Flynn pled guilty to! Conspiracy. (Read the damn story here)
          If the crimes are NOT provable … why would anyone EVER flip?

          P.S. Educate yourself. Flynn has confessed to CONSPIRING with the Russian Ambassador, AFTER Trump was elected.

          P.P.S. We’ve known for nearly a year that Trump’s entire fortune is obliged to Deutsche Bank, a convicted launderer for Russia … and that their loans were UNSECURED/CASH, at a time he was one of America’s worst credit risks and US Banks refused to lend to him (10 business failures, 5 of which were bankruptcies). We don’t know yet is any of this is related to the $25 million FRAUD settlement he was forced to pay, while in office.

        2. The comment of someone who is apparently unaware of people pleading down all the time, even when innocent.

          Pleading down from ZERO???? OMFG

          1. Lol you don’t inderstand anything. 100% chance of slap on the wrist is better than 20% chance of life in prison.

            I love how you make yourself look stupid and don’t even understand why!

            1. (SNEER)

              The comment of someone who is apparently unaware of people pleading down all the time, even when innocent.

              Lol you don’t inderstand anything.

              (smirk)

              100% chance of slap on the wrist is better than 20% chance of life in prison.

              He said “even if INNOCENT”

              I love how you make yourself look stupid and don’t even understand why!

              He said “even if innocent.”

              Bellowing blowhards be psychos.

    3. I saw this Mueller sentencing report last night and laughed my ass off.

      What about all the redacted parts? (You’ve publicly humiliated yourself. Again.
      Readers are NOT as stupid as you always assume (well SOME Trumptards are).

  6. Years later and I still don’t care.
    As an aside, people were talking about Fist’s whereabouts in the roundup, but where the fuck has Citizen been?

    1. Fist is mourning Bush today. Citizen Crusty popped in yesterday.

      1. Fist is mourning Bush today.
        He’s some decades too late. He should consider going to Japan. They still have the good stuff growing on their women.
        Citizen Crusty popped in yesterday.
        Nice. This makes me happy.

        1. You and BUCS would get along. I can’t stand Japanese porn.

          1. I don’t he likes it either due to the rapey tendencies.

          2. I can’t stand Japanese porn.

            What, pixelated dicks and vaginas don’t get you hot?

            Or, is that just what Japanese dicks and vaginas look like normally?

  7. Is this show still on?

    Who the hell keeps approving this? It never goes anywhere. We get this huge build up, all the media chime in about how ginormous the next episode will be, and pppfffffhht. Nothing. And as soon as it’s over–“On the next episode, Mueller’s REALLY gonna do it!”

    It’s as if Lost had just stayed on the air, with a reportermob gushing over every new cliffhanger, while people were caching the mountains of porn that are about to disappear from tumblr instead of paying attention to who’s the bad guy this week!

    1. Americans love being blueballed.

    2. I’m starting to think the A-Team was a documentary.

    3. It never goes anywhere.

      (spits coffee on monitor.) READ THE STORY ON THIS PAGE.
      Plus 6 convictions and/or guilty pleas, over 30 criminal indictments and over 100 known contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign, when Trump said there were none.

      Why do you people repeatedly humiliate yourselves, by claiming to know what Mueller has or doesn’t have???? (lol)

  8. “Mueller has recommended a sentence on the “low end of the guideline range”?including the possibility of no prison sentence at all.”

    Maybe because he did not really break any laws, but he had to be destroyed so Mueller can claim victory?

    1. Umm, Flynn had to see that Mueller had a LOT of proof against him. It was FLYNN who agreed to the bargain.
      Why are you so desperate?

  9. Michael Flynn … has provided so much assistance to the Department of Justice’s investigations that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is recommending a light sentence for Flynn for lying to the FBI about his connections with Russia.

    Not surprising at all, given that the lying to the FBI charge was all about gaining leverage to make him talk anyway.

    There’s not a whole lot here, but then people shouldn’t have been expecting a whole lot here, and perhaps people should not be either overly excited nor overly dismissive of the memo’s contents.

    Yet that won’t stop the media from pretending that this is a Big Fucking Deal, and that surely this means that Mueller’s going to drop the hammer on “Orange Hitler” any day now.

    1. Not surprising at all, given that the lying to the FBI charge was all about gaining leverage to make him talk anyway.

      Educate yourself. Flynn had to be convinced that Mueller had PROOF enough to convict him of major crime.
      That’s how plea bargains work. Ask any high school kids.

      Is the the intelligence of a Trump supporter?

      1. Public high school kids aren’t taught more than a half-semester of civics, government, or economics last I checked so no they can not answer that question without access to Wikipedia.

        1. So why have YOU blown the same thing three times?

          without access to Wikipedia.

          OR THE FUCKING NEWS!
          Now four times.

          1. I haven’t blown a single thing other than a single misspelling of ‘Kremlin’, you’ve made the claim that Steele was still a spy when receiving information from Russian government sources that he was handing off to Hillary Clinton. Notably, she was a private citizen at the time and so was he. Therefore, if you apply the standard being used for Trump she colluded with Russia to influence the election you immense retard.

            And the point isn’t that Hillary colluded with Russia, it’s that the measure being used for Trump is patent bullshit.

            1. it’s that the measure being used for Trump is patent bullshit

              Trumptard/Stalker STILL
              1) Claims to know what Mueller has or does nor have.
              2) REFUSES to accept ABSOLUTE PROOF of knowingly conspiring with Russia, (Don Jr)
              3) REFUSES to accept ABSOLUTE PROOF of knowingly conspiring with Russia (Flynn)

              Since you KNOW what Mueller has, please enlighten us on the redacted parts of the Flynn filing reported here.

              1. I’m not the one making claims, I’m pointing out the inherently flawed logic in your own claims. So far you’ve pissed yourself and spit coffee on your own computer, I’m curious if we can get you to shit in your own mouth before the end of the day.

                1. Since you KNOW what Mueller has, please enlighten us on the redacted parts of the Flynn filing reported here.

            2. I haven’t blown a single thing other than a single misspelling of ‘Kremlin’, you’ve made the claim that Steele was still a spy

              LIAR …. i>FUCKING LIAR

              NINE attempts … nine FAILS … to PROVE Hillary even knew Steele was being hired.

              Steele is a master spy .. but YOU say he was hired for something else!!!! … and FAIL to prove THAT, too!

    2. Pat Mahomes dropped the hammer on Orange Hitler last weekend.
      Now we need a miracle to win the division and make the playoffs…

    3. Not surprising at all, given that the lying to the FBI charge was all about gaining leverage to make him talk anyway.

      HOW DID MUELLER TRICK FLYNN IN TO LYING ABOUT HIS CONSPIRING WITH RUSSIA.

      WHO TRICKED MILLER INTO LYING TO PENCE, WHICH GOT HIM FIRED BY TRUMP?

  10. Apparently Scott is new to journalism.

    When has a Friday been the day you dump explosive positive news? All I see with the Manifort announcement is a non-event as it relates the the Mueller investigative charge.

      1. Social Justice is absolutely correct that Friday dumps are where you put things that you don’t want anyone to notice. That is the conventional wisdom of just about everyone, including actual journalists and educators.

        1. Now you fucked up on which part of his comment I ridiculed
          There are three parts.
          Umm, why did I cite the definition of journalism? (lol)

          1. No one knows why you do anything Hihn, but we all suspect that it’s because of mental illness.

            1. At this point it’s more than suspicion.

            2. Says the retarded cyber-bully, when TOTALLY humiliated on his “journalism” fuckup.
              (sneer)

  11. Mueller is recommending a light sentence for Flynn for lying to the FBI about his connections with Russia.

    Writing “I must not lie to the FBI” a hundred times? Forty years in Siberia?

    1. The last guy got 2 weeks. So I expect a week.

      1. Ads requested by Mueller for trying to coverup conspiring with Russia, after Trump was elected.

        P.S. Trump fired him for lying.

  12. I still wonder why the evil mastermind Putin went to the trouble of rigging the 2016 election, and then ignored the 2018 election. Allowing the Democrats to take back the House reduces the effectiveness of the president he supposedly installed.

    In fact, installing Trump doesn’t seem to have profited Putin in any way.

    1. As far as anyone knows, he didn’t rig anything but the brains of morons via such means as Facebook. Trump is just so terrible that his terribleness–and the fact that Democrats had no power anywhere–ensured that midterm voters would react the way they did. Don’t be daft.

      1. In other words, the “Russian collusion” story is bullshit.

        1. Are you even paying attention to what’s going on in the immediate vicinity of planet earth right now?

          1. Trump has programmed their robotic minds to deny collusion … even why nobody refers to it … even when collusion has NOTHING to do with Mueller’s appointment.

            Trump denying collusion is as useless as denying that he has a butch haircut. (snort)

    1. Your best comment so far.

      1. I got tired of kicking the crap out of Trumptards. Especially the craziest ones
        1) Who deny ABSOLUTE PROOF that Don Jt knowing conspired with Russia to help his dad win.
        2) Bellowing blowhards who KNOW what Mueller has and doesn’t have.
        3) Nothingburgers who display ignorance of Mueller’s 5 convictions of guilty pleas, over 30 indictments by a grand jury, over 100 contacts with Russia by Trump’s associates.
        4) Dummies whio don’t know Flynn was fired BY TRUMP. For lying

        As reported here, Flynn pled guilty to conspiring with Russia AFTER the election.

      2. at least the most coherent and sane.

  13. I see we have a room full of libertarians pathetically defending the most powerful politician in the world against some fucking crazy corrupt shit, just because he has an (R) after his name. If it were a (D), you’d all explode, and you all know it. Why are you even bothering with this exercise in demeaning yourselves?

    1. Why are you bitching about them?

  14. MAGA!

    1. MAGA = Morons Are Governing America
      MAGA = My Attorney Got Arrested!
      MAGA = My Advisors Going Away!
      MAGA = My Associates Getting Allocutions!
      MAGA = Make America (debt) Great Again.!
