LOL. This is what Mueller had on Flynn?

"I don't remember" gets you perjury? First off, Flynn must have been retarded, and to boot, had the worst legal representation ever if THIS is what did him in.

And second, if this is the insanely low bar necessary, and this isn't a partisan witch hunt, why hasn't one Democrat gotten caught up? What a farce...

The memo describes how Flynn downplayed the approach he had taken in his discussions with Kislyak when FBI agents asked about the discussions in the January 2017 interview. He told the agents that "no," he had not sought to influence Russia's vote on a United Nations Security Council resolution about Israeli settlements.

But investigators knew, according to charging documents filed last year, that Flynn had asked for Russia to vote against or delay the resolution.

Flynn's second lie, as described in the FBI memo, came in response to the agents asking him about the US's expulsion of Russian diplomats or closing Russian properties following the Kremlin's interference in the 2016 election. They asked him if he had encouraged Kislyak not to retaliate.

"Flynn responded, 'Not really. I don't remember.' It wasn't, 'Don't do anything,' " the memo said.

But the FBI knew that Flynn had asked Russia on that call not to escalate its response to the US.

Lots of new info on the conspiracy.

Trump Tower Russian lawyer is alleged to obstructed justice during work for the government of Russia while during the Magnitsky/Browder case. Probably an important detail considering the Trump Tower meeting.

Manafort lied about contacts/meetings with Russian intelligence officer, including meetings about Ukraine peace plan, '2016 campaign data', PAC payments, and a trip to Madrid. There's also a 3rd party allegation that Manafort attempt to contact the POTUS after the plea deal and Mueller believes he can prove that it's not hearsay.

These allegations kind of look like Mueller/DOJ are looking at some broad conspiracy allegation. Manafort was sharing potentially stolen polling data with a representative of the Russian government. Unknown if the conspiracy reached Trump for the moment, but there was certainly a conspiracy/collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia. Sadly, it doesn't matter that we have proof (Manafort literally admitted it).

Looks like the "Russian collusion" story is finally becoming mainstream. I encourage anyone who has not read the Steele Dossier (https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3259984-Trump-Intelligence-Allegations.html) to give it a read. It's amazing how much of it has been shown to be true while nothing has been shown to be false. And even the more outlandish things like Trump getting a cut of the Rosneft deal, seem to have a nugget of truth to them.

I wonder when Republican support will start to crumble? After Cohen testifies in February?

I remember learning about Nazis and the Holocaust and thinking, "who would support such evil? It's totally illogical." Trump has been very eye opening. He's so clearly a puppet, yet he still has 40% of the population's support

There's still people I'm sure, who are trying to prove Al Gore won the 2000 election. There's still 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Big Foot still gets research funding. And a lot of lefties still think Hillary Clinton had the 2016 election stolen from her. The rest, most likely, have moved on...

I find it shocking that Trump got next to nothing selling out America to Putin. For all the destruction he is doing to USA, Putin should pay him well. A Trump tower in every major city is a good start.

The comrade who recruited Trump deserves an Order of Lenin award. How about Hero of the Russian federation award to that comrade and also to Traitor Trump?
