Donald Trump thinks that this formless “they” gave General Michael Flynn a get-out-of-jail-free card. Why? Because this vague “they” treated him badly. POTUS is seriously mixed up. He believes that “they” are out there trying to scare people to death. Then, Trump linked “they” to witch hunts. Truly, he has been giving witches a bad name.
POTUS claimed that “they” have been lying in wait to catch someone in the “smallest of misstatement.” Of course, everyone knows that Trump tends to exaggerate, so his “smallest” may be bigger than a Trump Tower:
‘They gave General Flynn a great deal because they were embarrassed by the way he was treated – the FBI said he didn’t lie and they overrode the FBI. They want to scare everybody into making up stories that are not true by catching them in the smallest of misstatements. Sad!……
The president’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was barely through the door to his office before then-acting attorney general Sally Yates declared him a security risk, that he had been compromised by the Russians. Apparently, Trump believed that his national security adviser was too hot to handle, so he fired Yates and then Flynn.
Still, the man currently sitting in the Oval Office tried to get his then-FBI director, James Comey, to go easy on Flynn. That did not work out, so Trump fired Comey.
The former NSA turned state’s evidence in the special counsel Robert Mueller investigation into Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election and following elections. Mueller has also been probing the conspiracy link between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Flynn may have cooperated to protect his son, who also worked with him. Regardless of why, the general helped Mueller early and fully. That was how he got a good deal. Trying to follow Trump’s logic is like trying to figure out what a chicken is thinking.
