Michael Flynn’s Family Sets Up Legal Defense Fund

Politico reports:

The family of former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn has set up a legal defense fund for him, soliciting donations to ease the “tremendous financial burden” from the ongoing investigations into his actions and the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The enormous expense of attorneys’ fees and other related expenses far exceed their ability to pay,” Flynn’s brother and sister said in a statement emailed to reporters early Monday.

“To help ensure that he can defend himself, we have set up a legal defense fund, and we are asking Mike’s supporters, veterans, and all people of goodwill to contribute whatever amount they can to this fund.”

The fund will not accept donations from foreign governments, nor will it accept money from the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization.

    No one ever said being a FUCKING TRAITOR to your country was cheap.

    • Librarykid

      Speaking of which, what about all of that money he received for working for other nations? Either his bank accounts have 3 assholes each and are shitting money down the tubes or he is too cheap to pay his bills.

    Maybe Mikey should’ve thought about this BEF”ORE colluding with the Russians.

  • GayOldLady

    What happened to all that Money the Russians were paying you? You know, all those contacts and all that money you failed to report on FARA.

    • RobynWatts

      Russian currency just doesn’t go as far as it used to.

    • lattebud

      Why should he spend his money, even the ill-gotten, to defend him and his family when the sheeple will pay for it?

      • JustDucky

        Exactly. I would be amazed if he spent even a dime of his own money before he decided to crowd source his legal costs.

    • Gustav2

      Sshhhhhh! That money is hidden in Commerce Sec Wilbur Ross’ bank in Cyprus.

    • jerry

      Yes…NOW they won’t accept money from foreign governments or the Trump Organization? If he had followed that policy before, maybe he wouldn’t be in this predicament.

  • bkmn

    A reminder that Flynn Sr. was warned by the military about conducting business with foreign entities without approval from the military – he did it anyway.

    So they won’t be accepting money from Trump or the Trump campaign. As if Don the Con would even offer him a dime.

  • Gustav2

    It is really big of the Flynns to not take Trump money to pay for lawyers…since he rarely pays for his own,

      “If I did a 10th of what she did I’d be in jail today.” Damn. This fuckweasel needs to go to prison.

  • bJason

    I hope they get as much in donations as Susan Rice got for her defense fund.
    Exactly as much.

      Well, that’s what they say when there are natural disasters and such. So…. it’ll work for them as well, right?

  • Todd20036

    It’s ok to do anything you like, including call for the death of your opponent, betray your country, disenfranchise voters, steal from America, etc. as long as you are a RWNJ Nazi who is willing to pass laws that suppress minorities and enrich the wealthiest.

    And that is one of 2 major parties in America.

    Fuck him and his fund. And his idiot son. Nobody should give them a dime. I agree with shellback. He’s a traitor. Besides going to prison, I hope his legal fight bankrupts him and his family. Pure scum of the worst sort.

      that’s my #1 concern on all these investigations. Donny pulls a Ronny and the soldier boy takes all the blame. As i recall, north got zero actual jail time (on being convicted of multiple felonies) once the dust had settled.

    Mueller has not freeze their accounts and assets. This greedy traitors sold the country for millions and now they are begging like Tiny Tim? Fuck off!

  • Karl Dubhe

    If the wingers bankrupt themselves by supporting a man like Flynn; who am I to complain?

  • RobynWatts

    Flynn might be interested in this, but there is this loaded Nigerian prince out there….

  • worstcultever

    I still just can’t imagine the amount of face-palming going on in Mueller’s office at the SHEER EVEREST OF TREASONOUS CRIMINALITY before them – and the INCREDIBLE, JAW-DROPPING HUBRIS of these monsters thinking they’re not only wonderful rational innocent people, but the absolute greatest American manly men ever.

    The best way to not have expensive lawyer bills is to not break the law or even to give the appearance of having broken it.

    So apparently Russia hasn’t given him enough money yet.

  • Michael R

    Manafort seems to have gotten the most money out of this .

    • TrollopeReader

      a lot of very short-term multi-million $$ mortgages, that’s for sure…..

  • TrollopeReader

    I’m confused ….aren’t the Turks, Emirates and other low-lifes paying him enough money? Aren’t there some Cayman accounts he could liquidate?

  • itsjoe618

    LOCK. HIM. UP.

  • Hank

    Gee, how much of whatever moneys, that he gets, will he give to his Son’s Defense??? ZERO!!!!

  • JWC

    With Flynn’s popularity $25.50 Maybe he can get more from Russia

    In other words, “I’m not using MY money for this, I’ll get stupid people to pay!”

  • kareemachan

    Predictable is drumpster and his ilk. But, hey, waste your money on this weasel. We’ve got better things to do with ours. Like contributing to ACLU.

    Flynn Jr. should raise funds peddling pedophile pizza.

      I left Jr. a tweet expressing my concern that he be getting all lawyered up.

  • Greenscreen

    You can bet that the independent counsel is following the money and if Flynn has stashed any overseas it will be found. Flynn will end up broke, disgraced and doing time at a Club Fed. Maybe he can be Aaron’s daddy/roomie.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump is funneling this treasonous fuck $$ so he doesn’t rat out his ass…

    the administration’s ethics board has pulled back from their intent to make contributions anonymous which will affect flynn’s legal fund. another attempt to be less open by trump. this one failed. interest groups have to continue to be transparent in who they support.
