Flynn has nothing to incriminate Trump, president’s legal advisers say

President Trump’s allies are signaling that they believe former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has no information to incriminate the president.

A source close to the legal team said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller filings on Friday is the extent of Mr. Flynn’s incriminating statements about White House and campaign officials.

The retired three-star Army general pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to one charge of lying to the FBI about two contacts he made during the 2016 post-election transition with then-

Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Mr. Mueller’s charges make references to two unnamed Trump aides to worked with Mr. Flynn on the telephone calls.

Liberal TV pundits wildly speculated afterward that Mr. Flynn is ready to bring down the president.

But the legal-team source told The Washington Times, “There is simply no factual basis to implicate the president. He’s got nothing else. What you see in the criminal information is it. He’s empty.”

    The only thing Flynn did was to lie to the FBI, even though there was no reason to do so. Contacting the representatives of foreign governments after the election including the Russian ambassador was not illegal or even abnormal. Perhaps it was a lack of experience that caused Flynn to believe this was something that needed hiding. As an aside I do find interesting how the same FBI lied and lied to cover for Obama and Clinton but are able to charge an individual like Flynn for the same. In closing I thought and said at the time that Trump made a serious mistake in dumping Flynn. Replacing him with McMasters was even worse. He took some extremely bad advice and I fear it will come back in some form to haunt/hurt him. I believe the kabuki show run by Mueller is intent on creating grounds to justify the Democrats and the establishment Republicans to remove Trump.

    Just because it’s a nothing burger does not mean it can’t be overcooked.

    The politico-media complex is having an outbreak of mass hysteria, on a par with a muslim mob pointing at yelling “takfir”.
