One Corrupt Fuck Pardons Another

[Lame Duck] President Donald Trump pardoned former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Wednesday despite Flynn’s guilty plea to lying to the FBI about his Russia contacts.

Yeah, like nobody saw this coming. Roger Stone is next up.

Of course, if, for some reason, Trump or Jared or someone is investigated, Flynn would not be able to hide behind the Fifth Amendment. But that's probably not terribly likely.

Trump's pardon will not erase the judgment of history, which will record that Flynn was an unregistered foreign agent and possibly a spy for one of our adversaries.

Okay, let’s hear from all the loyalists trying to justify this pardon. Someone who worked as an agent for a foreign government without disclosing that information. A man who told Russia not to worry about the Obama administrations investigation of election interference after Trump gets inaugurated. The guy that plead guilty, TWICE, for lying to the FBI. Arguably, he was in a position of authority in the United States Government and influenced the administration to give favorable treatment to a foreign power. A military man, who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, acted only for his own and the administration’s benefit. In short, a traitor. Go ahead, Republicans and conservatives. Defend this action that pardons a traitor.

Who’s next? Manafort? Stone has already had his sentence commuted, does he get a pardon? Does setting a precedent such as this even register to you guys? You were so worried about the decay of the nation, where is your indignation now? You guys really are deplorable.

I predict a slot for the traitor on Fox for patriotic General Flynn, or maybe on that Onan Network trump prefers. Or maybe some recurring blog posts on BreitbartsDeadNow. Or selling commemorate medallions of the trump years on qvc. Or posting some shitpost on Craigslist Rants and Raves that will get quickly flagged. Can NY follow this corrupt asshole's dirty money and pokeyize this turncoat motherfucker like a common AL Capone?

I don't suppose Emmet Sullivan was too thrilled with this news, and he has been chosen to hear the federal lawsuit against the Fergus campaign for violations of the VRA.

The cuckold crybabies are all crying "but he was pressured, under duress!" Uhhmmm... he is supposed to be a Marine, semper fi (lowercase). CV reads recon, combat commando, spy. Almost a Ranger. I have no respect for him, I think he's a traitor, and while I've mixed it up with more than a few bad-asses down through the years - used to be sport - I would think twice about mixing it up with him, even at our age. So no, you're not gonna' tell me he was "pressured" into a guilty plea by a bunch of silk-suited civilians.

You can tell me but I'm not gonna' buy it.

So Fergus pardoned a turkey and an agent of Turkey.

Trump rewards loyalty and fealty. And I don't mean to the Constitution.

Flynn is the worst kind of turncoat to country and duty.

"The prosecuting attorney stayed silent as Judge Emmet Sullivan gave Flynn the first, second, and third degree. In an eight-minute beat-down, Sullivan smashed Flynn, Trump, and their supporters’ conspiracy theory that Flynn is some doe-eyed patriot who was duped by the Deep State FBI into acting against the Hero King. Sullivan told Flynn that he “sold out his country” and made an offhanded remark about Flynn committing treason."


May he be shunned for an eternity.
