What Russia thing? He fired him over not telling the Trump campaign (or anyone) about the Turkish agent thing.

I'm betting the plea is more about who he gives up.

This may come as a shock to you Broman, but talking to a Russian ambassador is not a crime.

I'm shocked a person would lie about doing something legal. I'm shocked when you keep defending a person you don't support.

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

First of all, as ABC was forced to admit, he wasn't a private citizen because it was after the election, and he's no longer a private citizen, but was part of the incoming administration.

2. Meeting with foreign officials during the period between the election and the inauguration is not illegal. Obama also did it.

3. Having a conversation and negotiating are two different things.

For all you amateur special prosecutors out there, here's an article from 2012 called "Did candidate Obama call world leaders in 2008?"

...Is it normal for presidential candidates to insert themselves into global events by dialing up heads of state? In fact, Obama did pretty much the same thing — multiple times, no less — as a candidate during the 2008 campaign.

Obama, like Romney, embarked on a foreign trip as a candidate, meeting face-to-face with leaders such as Afghan President Hamid Karzai, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (headline: "Obama Talks Tough About Iran During Visit to Israel"). But he also placed several phone calls.

In January 2008, for example, Obama reached out to the two leaders at the center of a bitterly disputed election in Kenya, his father’s homeland. "What I urged was that all the leaders there, regardless of their position on the election, tell their supporters to stand down," Obama explained at the time. The Bush-era State Department, which coordinated the calls with Obama, praised the effort. "Any time you have a person of stature … who is pushing for a peaceful, political resolution, that’s a positive thing," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

Then, after hostilities erupted between Georgia and Russia in August 2008, both Obama and Republican challenger John McCain phoned Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, while condemning Russia for violating Georgia’s sovereignty. In fact, the candidates called Saakashvili so frequently — the Georgian leader said he heard from them "pretty often" — that it became a bit of a contest; when pressed by Fox News, Saakashvili conceded that McCain had called first but that Obama was "very supportive." In September, the prime minister requested a call with Obama to thank him for mentioning Georgia in his convention speech.

That was only for the Kenya thing, the way I read it. And even then, only because Obama was born there. :mrgreen:

Trump fired Flynn for lying to Pence and the FBI about something Trump claims was perfectly legal. :bonk:

I'm betting Mueller has more than this on Flynn. If that was all there was to it I doubt Flynn would have rolled so quickly.

I'm betting Mueller believes Flynn will lead him to others who were negotiating with the Russians way before election day.

Keep in mind that Trump's latest tweet has him admitting to illegality. He wrote that he fired Flynn for lying to Pence "and the FBI."

If Trump knew on February 13 that Flynn had lied to the FBI—and the President just admitted that he did know—then he's got two big problems. The first is: How did he know Flynn had lied? Did Trump have any involvement in ordering either the lie itself, or the meeting(s) with the Russians that prompted the lie? The second is: If Trump knew that Flynn was guilty of a federal offense on February 13, it means that his conversations with and firing of James Comey were unambiguously intended to cover up a crime. This is a textbook example of obstruction of justice.

Trump just tweeted he didn't tell Comey to not investigate Flynn. :fan:

Comey documented their meeting differently. Given the number of lies from this president I have more faith in Comey.

The Trump Administration is now saying he didn't write the tweet that has him admitting to obstruction of justice.

A Marx Brothers movie looks better organized than this group.
