Crime: Flynn Asks Russia to Ignore the Current President

Crime: Flynn Asks Russia to Ignore the Current President

Post Date: 12/22/2016

On Dec 22, and then again on the 29th, Flynn asks Russia to ignore the current president. See Flynn Timeline. On Dec 29, Flynn asks Russia to limit it’s response to Obama’s sanctions diminishing the effect of an act of the current President. On Dec 22, Flynn asks Russia to delay a pending UN Security Council resolution. Flynn knowingly broke the law. Specifically the never used Logan Act that forbids incoming administrations from undermining the current administration. Something General Flynn would know. Later, on Jan 24, 2018, Flynn lies to the FBI about this communication–an indicator of a guilty mindset. He later pleads guilty to lying to the FBI. In the guilty plea, Flynn admits he was directed by multiple senior members of the Trump transition team huddled at Mar-a-Lago.
