Elder Patriot -Despite the breathless reporting by Deep State media that Michael Flynn was about to turn on President Trump and reveal grounds for his impeachment nothing of the sort is about to happen.
We reported that Flynn remained loyal to the president, and his country, earlier this week. Nothing that has happened in the interim has changed that.
Experienced prosecutors have been confirming that by accepting Flynn’s plea Mueller has admitted he’s spent a year and millions of dollars chasing his tail.
As we concluded yesterday, if Mueller had proof that a conspiracy existed between then candidate Trump and the Russians to bias his election, and that Flynn had knowledge of and participated in it, he would have demanded that Flynn plead guilty to the conspiracy itself and not to simply lying to investigators.
Anything less, like pleading to making misstatements, diminishes the value of that witness’ believability.
Now esteemed Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz told the hosts of Fox and Friends earlier this morning the exact same thing.
Dershowitz explained why:
“Well, the last thing any prosecutor wants to do is to have to indict his primary witness for lying. Because if you indict your witness for lying, it really means he’s not useful as a witness, he has no credibility. I’m sure the prosecutor was trying to indict him for some scheme or conspiracy that involved other people in the White House, but there is nothing there, and he had to, finally come down and indict him for lying, which makes him a useless witness. So, this is not a show of strength by the prosecutor. It’s a show of weakness. It’s a show that they really have nothing on anybody above of Flynn and that Flynn made the terrible mistake about lying about something he could have told truth about. Because the two things he lied about were perfectly lawful and perfectly proper for somebody to do during the transition. And so, I think it really reflects a weakness, not a strength in Mueller’s prosecution.”
“Now, they still may be able to use him to lead to other witnesses or to get documentary evidence or to give them leads, but he’s no good as witness. Because he’s obviously sold himself to protect his own son, and he’s prepared not only to sing, but perhaps even to compose and to exaggerate if he thinks that will get him a better deal from the prosecutor. So, if I’m a defense lawyer, I have no trouble destroying his credibility on the witness stand.”
Dershowitz went on to compare the plea deals with George Papadopoulos (making false statements to a federal agent) and Flynn, along with the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates for not filing the proper paperwork to the intelligence community’s equivalence to jaywalking.
“You indict people for lying to the FBI, failing to fill out the proper forms. These are forms of essentially political jaywalking, then you squeeze them and you hope that maybe they’ll give you information that would lead to somebody higher up. But in the end, it’s hope over reality. So, I would not say this is a day for celebrating for the prosecution in the Mueller office.”
It’s time for Mueller to admit he has nothing on Trump or his administration and get out the way so that the president can do what he was elected to do – drain the swamp.
There is still a way for Mueller to justify the money and effort he’s expended and that is to finally indict Hillary for her crimes against the people of the United States.
