White House: Flynn Only Worked Here 25 Days And Nothing He Says Implicates Anyone Else [VIDEO]

The Washington Post reports:

In a statement, White House lawyer Ty Cobb said, “The false statements involved mirror the false statements to White House officials which resulted in his resignation in February of this year. Nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn. The conclusion of this phase of the Special Counsel’s work demonstrates again that the Special Counsel is moving with all deliberate speed and clears the way for a prompt and reasonable conclusion.”

Even after Flynn was described as having misled Vice President Pence about the contact with Kislyak, Trump was conflicted over firing him — and even said after Flynn left the White House that he may have made a mistake. Trump’s request of former FBI director James B. Comey to be lenient with Flynn has also come under scrutiny by the special counsel.

As part of Flynn’s negotiations, his son, Michael G. Flynn, is not expected to be charged, according to a person with knowledge of the talks. Barry Coburn, a lawyer for Flynn’s son, declined to comment Friday morning.

      The threat of nuclear war initiated by the current madman in the Oval Office – eliminated. That would be the good news.

      The bad news is that a President Pence would work seriously and professionally with the Republicans and get more of the monstrous Republican agenda done to completion.

    • Treant

      A placeholder, if he ever assumes the Presidency. And given the probable decimation* of Republican forces in 2018, not able to get much passed in Congress.

    • The_Wretched

      Pay more attention. Flynn was in full communication with Pence on the collusion. Pence was All In during the campaign. Pence does. not. skate.

      This is an odious fear based argument for keeping Trump. It won’t work. It is disgusting.

      • Publius

        Mueller isn’t taking them both down, and to think so is purely wishful thinking. Mike Pence will probably be president if President Trump resigns. You don’t have to like Mike Pence to realize that he’s going to be POTUS. This is happening.

        • The_Wretched

          “Mike Pence will probably be president”

          Argument from assertion isn’t compelling.

    How can we talk about Russian collusion and orange traitors when there is a War on Christmas going on???
    :

  • crewman

    The fact that Trump fired Mueller Comey presumably for refusing to quit pursuing a case against Flynn and that Trump so publicly sent unmissable messages of loyalty to Flynn told us early on that Flynn would be a critical piece to bringing down Trump. Trump is only loyal to Trump and to those who can hurt him most.

    • GayOldLady

      That’s how Don-Don’s brain is interpreting what’s going on right now. He’s likely trying to imagine what Federal Prison will be like. I’m hoping when he goes to prison they isolate him from white inmates and let him bunk with some Latinos and some Black guys or some Muslims. That would really split his noodle.

      • Statistics Palin

        I hope he’s housed exclusively with members of the Nation of Islam.

        Nixon chose him and then, after Nixon’s resignation Ford pardoned Nixon in a move that was widely perceived to be a quid pro quo for being named vice president and that probably cost Ford the 1976 election.

      She should not hold her breath. Trump will deny everything until that stops working, then he will blame everything and everyone else until that stops working, then he will resign and declare victory. My hope is that after he quits he will be perpwalked into the slammer.

      • David Walker

        Unless, of course, he pardons himself before the official resignation. Admittedly, that’s thinking ahead, of which so many in DC seem to be incapable, but he did ask about that. Nothing about how the government works, but he did ask about pardoning himself.

        • bzrd

          to accept his own pardon, he admits his guilt
          but
          he never has done that before
          it’s always someone else did it

          • David L. Caster

            And he can’t pardon himself from state charges. Hopefully New York or some other state can get him for something. The entire Trump criminal enterprise along with the GOP should be pulled down.

          • I would rather have the Federal Government prosecute Trump than a State Criminal Court..

        • I don’t know if he can do this, or it would stand. A Federal Judge and then SCOTUS would have to rule on a self pardon by the President. I am guessing, no, even though the President has broad pardon powers given to the President by Article II, Section 2 clause 1, there is a long history of jurisprudence that one cannot pardon one’s self for crimes committed.. It is sort of like a Judge judging one’s self..

          Allegedly Four days before Nixon resigned, the trial balloon went up and it was shot down that it wouldn’t work for Nixon to pardon himself..

    • Treant

      Their lack of concern can be read as collusion with the treason. Their complete lack of action on anything we already know is absolutely collusion to protect their “president.”

      They probably should be thinking about that.

      • AmeriCanadian

        Do you believe that it’s a “tell” that they are not concerned? It really makes me wonder if they already know the outcome of the 2018 elections…that they have nothing to worry about.

        • Treant

          Frankly, yes. It’s a tell. I still think the whole investigation is fixed and each little guy will escape with minimal charges while the big guys are never convicted with the major charges due to leaving intentional plot holes. State charges, ditto…they’ll sidestep, if they’re ever charged at all.

          The Republicans will take losses in 2018, but they’ll only lose the House if they decide that two years of gridlock is better than two years of Trump.

          I’ll have to rethink a bit if Jones wins in Alabama this month. I don’t think I’ll need to rethink, to tell you the truth. It’s Moore by somewhat over the recount margin regardless of how the voting goes.

    Trump will probably say that Flynn never worked for him, or maybe worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Here’s some fun reading in today’s Guardian on how brazen a liar Hair Furor can be. It’s perhaps fitting to bring Richard Nixon into this discussion now, given today’s news.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/01/trump-gossip-columnist-media-coverage-susan-mulcahy

    After a source tipped her off to a meeting between Trump and Nixon and she called to confirm it, for instance, Trump didn’t just evade the question: he totally denied it. “‘Nope, didn’t have a meeting with Nixon,’” she recalled him saying. “Then,” she added, “Nixon’s office confirmed it.”

    It was an ironic place to find oneself, post-Watergate: getting stories confirmed by a confirmed crook. But Nixon was apparently more honest then the guy he was meeting with. Making the lie more ridiculous, Mulcahy recalled, was the fact that the meeting was, by all reports, relatively innocuous – Nixon was looking for an apartment and thought Trump might help.

    • Gustav2

      “Worse than Nixon”

      Now that’s a legacy!

      • Reality.Bites

        Nixon didn’t lie obsessively, just defensively. If he told a lie he knew he was doing it and he was doing it for a reason.

        Trump has shown himself simply incapable of telling the truth or even recognizing it.

      • The_Wretched

      US sneezes, everyone gets a cold. No one can see where this is heading – especially on top of the insane tax policy they are about the drop. From a foreign perspective, we might be about to lose our president and yet the elites are looting the public at the exact same time. That’s a shocking situation.
