    Since he was out in the Pentagon, he drifted to the billionaire soaked reactionary right wing fringe, where his cowboy act is generally well received (they loved Douglas MacArthur, Curtiss LeMay and Oliver North, too).

    Trump like him because the talk radio right thought he was a hero. Of course, they all cheered on cue to the idea of having a general named “mad dog” as Defense Secretary, even if they didnt really know who the guy was.

    Right wing media polished Flynns tarnished star, and assembled the usual Trump victim legend around him.

    Flynn was making promises to teh Russians. Promises he had no authority to make. Promises that were in direct contradiction to the policy of the country he served. Period.

    We have it on tape. We have it in court documents. We have it in a guilty plea.
    His guilty plea was for telling a lie. That aside, can you tell us exactly what was in the conversation/s with the Russian, not some half made up story, give us the exact dialogue word for word.

    I already see a list of usual suspects are viewing the thread. Let's see what they come up with.

    We may have to wait for 24hrs for the new narrative to hit their work email.

    No. I see that the Ohio Star is biased and factually challenged. The NYT has a bias, but they are not factually challenged. Also, I understand the diffeerence between opinion and news from the media.
