Flynn to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with Russians: 

Reports Christina Wilkie | @christinawilkie Published 2 Hours Ago Updated 54 Mins Ago Former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn is reportedly willing to testify that President Donald Trump and Trump transition officials directed him to make contact with Russians during Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. 

Flynn has pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI, a felony that is believed to be part of a deal to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. 

Trump has vehemently denied that he ever had anything to do with Russia.

Citing a Flynn "confidant," ABC News' Brian Ross reported that Flynn has "promised full cooperation" with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and he is "prepared to testify against President Trump, against members of the Trump family and others in the White House. He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate, Donald Trump, ordered and directed him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point."

Trump is a liar and has been lying about this Russia investigation from day one.

Popcorn, beer, and a bong.

As we watch the drama unfold and the decline of American government integrity. The the eyes of The People supporting Trump will likely remain closed.

Lock him up! The trumpers still think it's possible that Hillary might go to prison, so why not Trump? Probably unlikely, but it would make a lot of people (including me) very happy. Meanwhile the Republican plot to destroy our economy progresses.

It's being reported that the lousy little weasel Kushner has been named as the one who told Flynn to contact the Russian ambassador.

Getting pretty close to Lord Dampnut.
Anyone making book that tRump tries to fire Mueller?

I'll ave a nice oatmeal stout with my popcorn.

Ducky, RN, Dervish, what are the far right blogs saying about this damaging news?

Are they still saying there's nothing to this Russia talk? Someone over at one of those blogs, the one who refers to Muslims as "vermin" did write a while back that there nothing to this Russia busines. Nothing at all. IIRC, he's one of the dotardiest of the dotards on those blogs. Does he still think there's nothing to this Russia thing. How long will their denials serve them?

It's all beginning to make sense now -- all of Trump's hysteria. He knew his ass was toast once Mueller's team got their hooks into Flynn.

Now it's on to Kushner.

Yes, popcorn.

I wonder when Trump will resign.

Remember when Drumpf said he'd hire only the best people?

How many in his administration have been indicted or charged with a felony? And it's not been a year again!

Shaw... get lots of popcorn... here's the best quote I've seen from the world of make believe...

"I don’t think Trump has ever looked in better shape."

You're 100% right... not even reality can cause these folks to rethink their delusions...

Here's an interesting take on "Archie Bunker" by Dana Milbank of the Washington Post:

Anyone who says "Trump has never looked in better shape." is clearly out of his or her mind. Only the mad would see it that way.

It has absolutely nothing to do with Trump.

Quote... You leftwingnut dreamers always chase those windmills... Flynn and Manafort were always the target of Mueller. I guess you were the only person who didn't get the memo.

I guess that is why Flynn got off so lightly. One charge, even though there is a LOT more we know he's guilty of. Because the charging started with Manafort and will stop with Flynn.

I think the OPPOSITE of what a later commenter wrote is true. Which was... "the division in America between the left and right widens by the minute. The right get more aligned with reality and the left get more unhinged".

Love the Hillary toon.

“What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion," Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for fund-raising events in New York. "There’s been absolutely no collusion, so we’re very happy.”

It's not just a river in Egypt.

Kevin #45's quote sounds like a line from one of my favorite Brit movies "A Private Function" with Michael Palin and Maggie Smith.

The quote: "No pigs! No pigs! No pigs here! No pigs!" You have to have seen the film to appreciate it. In effect what #45 said, like the lines from the move, is exactly the opposite of the truth.

Also. Trump is a liar. So no sane person believes him.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dervish, those blogs are not known for dealing in reality or for encouraging opposition comments. All they know is that TRump, in all his respendent mendacity, is going to deliver them -- something. They don't realize that he's going to shaft them because they're not part of the elite, Trump's swampmates. It's sad, but inevitable for fools to believe the foolish.

They think #45's on their side, but they're not part of #45's billionaire club. He's going to sign a tax bill that's going to hurt them, and right now they're dancing for joy. As I said, fools.
