What a triumphant day for liberals! Gen. Michael Flynn is pleading guilty to talking to the Russian ambassador and not telling the FBI about it, a capital crime if you’re a racist war-mongering Democrat.
This means Flynn and Trump colluded with Russia to influence the November election! Right!?
Only one problem. The supposed “bombshell proof” of Flynn’s “collusion” with Russia occurred in December 2016. That’s at least one month AFTER the election took place.
More from Fox News:
Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to making false statements to the FBI – as part of a deal that involves his full cooperation with investigators in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
Court documents show Flynn has acknowledged to investigators that at least two Trump transition members were involved in his outreach to Russian officials – though he initially gave false statements about those discussions.
The documents say that in late December 2016, Flynn called a senior transition official (identified as the “PTT official”) to ask what to communicate to the Russian ambassador about sanctions. That official and Flynn discussed how they didn’t want Russia to “escalate the situation,” something Flynn immediately told the ambassador in a phone call.
A source with full knowledge of the investigation told Fox News on Friday that the “PTT official” named in the document is in fact K.T. McFarland, who was Flynn’s deputy at the time and previously was a Fox News national security analyst.
The documents also say that in mid-December, a “very senior member” of the Trump transition team directed Flynn to contact foreign governments including Russia over a United Nations vote regarding Israeli settlements. Flynn in turn contacted the Russian ambassador.
The Associated Press reports the “very senior” official was Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.
A source with knowledge of the investigation, however, told Fox News that this was part of an effort involving several transition officials making numerous calls. The source claimed Kushner did not specifically direct Flynn to call Russia, though did get the ball rolling on the phone calls in general.
A wild guess…you won’t be hearing the word “December” in the news very often. It’ll be like the month no longer exists. All they want you to read is that “Flynn lied about talking to Russians.”
Don’t fall for it! Always look deeper. A well-informed public is what the Swamp hates most of all.
