The media today was all abuzz about charges brought against Michael Flynn. Implications were made that the Trump campaign ordered Flynn to do something illegal.
But David French of National Review indicates otherwise in his article, “Offense Statement”:
Moments ago, the special counsel released Michael Flynn’s “Statement of the Offense.” This document lays out Flynn’s crimes in far greater detail than the short “information” released earlier today. It’s important to state this clearly as possible — the statement contains no evidence of collusion with Russia to influence the presidential election. Instead, it amplifies the fact that Flynn apparently lied about contacts that were lawful and appropriate.
Lawful appropriate contacts huh? Sounds like a Scooter Libby indictment could be on the way…while Hillary, Lynch, Holder, Lerner, Rice, et al have escaped jail and the humiliation of a criminal record. The injustice continues to be staggering!
There’s an update to French’s article. Eli Lake at Bloomberg is reporting that jared Kushner is the “very senior member” of the transition team who may have told Flynn to contact “every foreign minister or ambassador from a country on the U.N. Security Council to delay or vote against the resolution” on Israel.
I recommend the article to those who are curious about the Flynn case.
