Judge Emmet Sullivan has now formally accepted Michael Flynn's guilty plea, after spending several minutes revisiting the unusual circumstance of Flynn's interview and his intentions today.

He gave Flynn several outs to rethink his plea, and Flynn asserted several times he is ready to go forward.
========================================
Flynn also admitted the judge that he knew that lying to a federal investigator was against the law. Sentencing soon.

Kinda throws out the Flynn was trapped theory that they were trying to spread all last night.

Wait. Hold the phone. In another thread, the citizens of Trump Fan Nation are insisting Flynn committed no crimes. He was denied his Miranda rights and this would be thrown out. There were no crimes. It was a massive FBI set up, and the crimes were manufactured.

So, this doesn't square with that. Must be fake nooz.

Fake nooz! I don't believe it! I believe the Trump fans!

Flynn must have been brainwashed. Or drugged. This isn't possible. I mean, I read it right here on DP.

Wait... What?!?!!?

You mean... All of the legalese speakers, and all of the tough alpha alt-right covert incel male men, couldn't put Michael Flynn's career back together again?

Well, then **** that dude.

Our screaming friends seem to be MIA these days.

Sullivan asks Flynn if he was aware that lying to the FBI was illegal.

"I was aware," Flynn says.




Sullivan now asks Flynn's attorney if he believes his client was entrapped by the FBI.

"No, your honor," says the lawyer.

One final time, and still sounding skeptical, Sullivan asks Flynn, "If you want to proceed because you are guilty of this offense..."

Flynn says he is, and wants to proceed.

Sullivan accepts the plea.



"You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the president! "Arguably, this undermines everything this flag over here stands for! Arguably, you sold your country out!"

And guess what? Looks as though Flynn may still be cooperating with Mueller.

"Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack says "it remains a possibility that General Flynn is continuing to cooperate with the government."

Judge Sullivan had asked Van Grack if Flynn was still cooperating, and Van Grack took several seconds to give that response."

I ignored all of that nonsense for the past few days because I knew it would pass almost immediately.

I don't think this Michael Flynn guy is too smart, considering the offspring he breeds.

Mueller prosecutor Brandon van Grack haltingly tells Sullivan it is a "possibility" that Flynn is still cooperating with the special counsel's office.

If Flynn doesn't plead guilty now, Mueller is gonna continue his financial destruction of Flynn - and possibly his son's - by dragging Flynn through the courts on Turkey-collusion charges.

What did I miss? Or do I even want to know. I can read the bathroom stalls in the Kremlin if I want to get an insight into what he's thinking.

SULLIVAN WARNS FLYNN OF A PRISON SENTENCE:

"You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the president!

"Arguably, this undermines everything this flag over here stands for! Arguably, you sold your country out!"

Why does Flynn have supporters?

Flynn has supporters because Trump orders his Fan Nation to support him.

Why does Flynn have supporters?

Because he is, for some reason, Team Trump, and he's being prosecuted by Team Not-Trump.
