If this gets around, it could end up being special counsel Robert Mueller’s worst nightmare.
Former national security advisor Mike Flynn has now pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, but the hysterical deep state-controlled Fake News Media, smelling blood, has doubled down on its attempts to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency by proving “collusion” with Russia.
The insinuation throughout this process has been that Trump’s team holding discussions with Russia – whether regarding sanctions or the price of bread in Timbuktu does not matter – is somehow tantamount to treason.
Well, that’s not how Barack Obama’s administration saw it – here’s the deputy spokesman at State, Mark Toner, answering that very question just a week before the inauguration:
The president himself weighed in on Saturday:
I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday “interrogation” with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double standard?

The insane Russia inquisition may have some desperate last gasps of life left, but essentially, there is nothing to find – and there never was.
Rather, “Russiagate” is all about undermining a newly elected president who threatened established interests and dared to suggest changing US foreign policy (his indisputable constitutional prerogative).
Robert Mueller should indeed take a look at his dear friends and political allies, the Clintons. But we know he won’t do that.
Mr. Mueller, stop your ludicrous search for nothing and go home.
This is called game, set, match.
