Byron York Ponders The Flynn Puzzle Question

Conservative Treehouse: In a curious article tonight Byron York presents an odd dynamic surrounding the Michael Flynn “lie narrative.”   York points out that in March 2017, James Comey told a closed session of congress that he didn’t think Michael Flynn lied to FBI investigators; yet in December 2017, Flynn accepted a plea therein.  York is puzzled – SEE HERE

As we previously shared, the answer to the question(s) presented within the Flynn article are really not that difficult to figure out.

There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the President-Elect’s Transition Team talking to any foreign government, or any official within any foreign government. Ever. Period.  Actually, that’s exactly what transition teams are supposed to do; they reach out and receive information from foreign government officials as the starting point to communication with a new administration.

Many people have asked the question why would Michael Flynn have lied about talking to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the first place?

It’s a great question.

The Occam’s Razor answer is the toxic political environment that existed in January 2017, where the administration was being hammered by a tsunami of media narratives and political opposition claiming that any scintilla of contact with anything Russian meant that Putin and Trump were “colluding BFF’s”,…. and Flynn didn’t want to fuel that nonsense.

That toxic media environment and Mike Pence speaking poorly during a Face The Nation interview was the issue.  Once Vice-President Mike Pence made the statement that Flynn had no contact with anyone from Russia etc. any contradictory statement from Flynn would make Pence appear compromised; so Flynn had to stick to Pence’s false point without clarification.  more here

  1. I think CTH bolder the wrong part of Dirtbag Dickerson’s loaded diaper of a question:

    “…did any advisor or anybody in the Trump campaign have any contact with the Russians who were trying to meddle in the election?”

    How can Pence possibly answer “yes” to that? Flynn had talked to the RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR, fercryinoutloud! just about every pol in D.C. had talked to Kislyak! Dickerson wanted Pence on the record admitting Flynn had talked with members of some shadowy Russian conspiracy cabal which existed only in a media narrative. Dick Dickerson was looking for Pence to give life to the media strawman called “Russians who were trying to interfere in the election”, because merely talking to the Russian Ambassador who EVERYONE talked to, is neither sinister or criminal.

    Talk about Flynn needing a lawyer for an FBI interview…Pence should have had one review Dirtbag Dickerson’s questions before consenting to an MSM interview. I hate those devious f–ks.

    And Sally Yates should be disbarred at a minimum, and shamed into obscurity, so that she will never have a chance to be my Senator from Georgia.

  2. You know you’re dealing with satanic people when they destroy a good man using his own honor, loyalty, and integrity to do it. I hope Flying sues the living shit out of everyone in the FBI and DoJ personally, who connived to screw him like this just to get to Trump. Just absolutely disgusting from beginning to end…

    No, not Goddamn America… Goddamn the democrats. Goddamn the deep state.
