Well, shoot, y’all. Today has been wild and it’s not even lunchtime yet. Now former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn has come out and turned on his own boss to help out Mueller’s investigation.
Today, Flynn entered a guilty plea of “lying to the FBI” with Robert Mueller in return for a SEVERELY reduced sentencing. You see, Flynn was facing up to 60 years in prison with the previous charges. Now, however, the maximum sentence for him is only 5 years.
According to the Prosecutors involved with the case, Flynn also admitted that he had coordinated phone calls to Russia with senior Trump officials before lying about the calls at a later date.
So what massive revelation did the Special Prosecutor manage to get out of Mike Flynn? Well, according to a source at ABC News, Flynn is ready to say that President Trump ORDERED him to make the calls to Russia before lying about have no knowledge of the calls.
If this is true, it does not look good for the President. It may not be the same a treason or even election tampering, but Trump’s insistence that he knew nothing may result in an “Obstruction of Justice” investigation and a potential impeachment lawsuit in 2018.
Now, even if that happens, an impeachment is not the end for Donald Trump. Only 2 US Presidents have ever been impeached, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Both survived the trial.
So, what do y’all think of what happened today? Let us know in the comments.
