    And Donald Trump was arguably just about the last person the GOP wanted to nominate.

    So under your theory, all of these dudes should still be in prison becasue they stood before a judge in open court and pleaded guilty. That's the system of justice you support? Really?

    Flynn admitted lying to FBI agents about his dealings with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition and making false statements about Trump transition officials’ lobbying on a United Nations resolution condemning Israel. Flynn also acknowledged that he signed Foreign Agent Registration Act filings that contained false statements about his work on a lobbying and advocacy project related to Turkey.

    He did all this in a court off law before a federal judge who after hearing his confession wondered aloud why he was not charged with treason against the United States.

    Baloney. Nobody has to stand in court and confess crimes like Flynn did. Flynn admitted lying to FBI agents about his dealings with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition and making false statements about Trump transition officials’ lobbying on a United Nations resolution condemning Israel. Flynn also acknowledged that he signed Foreign Agent Registration Act filings that contained false statements about his work on a lobbying and advocacy project related to Turkey.

    He made these admissions to a federal judge in court.

    I don't know why that should be controversial or objectionable.
    When the FBI interviewed Flynn in Jan 2016, they had no good faith reason for doing so. So, under the law, its not possible for there to have "material" fact lied about.

    The stuff about FARA? Nothing to do here. There have been about half dozen prosecutions on that since the laws were on the book over 70 years ago. If there is a problem, the usual solution is for the person to simply resubmit.
    The validity of investigating Flynn was borne out by his admissions in court before a federal judge. Flynn admitted lying to FBI agents about his dealings with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition and making false statements about Trump transition officials’ lobbying on a United Nations resolution condemning Israel. Flynn also acknowledged that he signed Foreign Agent Registration Act filings that contained false statements about his work on a lobbying and advocacy project related to Turkey.

    What did he do with the $500,000 he received from a Turkish oligarch close to Putin?
