Mainstream media outlets won’t report this, but the frenzy surrounding Michael Flynn is hypocritical. Hillary Clinton’s campaign was thick with crime, yet the FBI ignored her transgressions.
“Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI, nothing happened to her,” President Trump said Monday. “Flynn lied and they destroyed his life. I think it’s a shame.”
It was a daring statement that shows how confident the president is in his innocence. He wouldn’t antagonize the agency in charge of investigating his own campaign unless he thought their search would be fruitless.
Flynn’s guilty plea doesn’t implicate Trump, no matter how much liberals wish that it did.
According to USA Today: “The retired Army lieutenant general also agreed to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller… Flynn told the FBI – along with Vice President Pence and other Trump administration officials – that he did not speak with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about economic sanctions that former President Obama slapped on Russia over its election interference. Flynn later admitted the issue did in fact surface.”
Flynn was expelled from the White House within a month of the inauguration.
Democrats want to be proven right so badly. The interminable Russia investigation is their greatest chance to mar Trump’s reputation. Fringe liberals have been calling for impeachment since the inauguration.
Clinton and her cronies engaged in multiple dirty tricks, yet she escaped unscathed. Flynn is being raked over the coals for behavior that was routine for Clinton. Her unsavory ties to Saudi Arabia have been the source of speculation for years.
