It was only a matter of time before the ongoing investigation into Russian collusion, spearheaded by Robert Mueller, turned up something. On Friday a bombshell was dropped by an unlikely source, which left Americans stunned.
Retired LT. General Michael Flynn was charged with one count of lying to the FBI about the nature of conversations that took place between himself and the Russian ambassador previous to President Trump taking office.
Flynn has promised to be fully cooperative in the special counsel’s Russia investigation. A confident even stated the Flynn is prepared to testify that Trump instructed him to contact the Russians as a way to team up in the fight against ISIS.
This charge could ultimately put Flynn in prison for up to five years. Flynn was let go after the hearing but is required to do weekly check-ins with authorities. The judge noted that Flynn is being very cooperative with authorities in other areas, and has put off sentencing for the time being.
Many believe that this is just the beginning of proper justice being served, and it seems that former FBI director James Comey shares in that sentiment.
Comey took to Instagram and Twitter shortly after the news of Flynn’s charges became public knowledge to throw some shade at the Trump administration in the form of a bible verse, which read:
‘But justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” Amos 5:24’
The biblical quote was accompanied by a peaceful photo of a waterfall.
