Judge Sullivan harshly admonished Michael Flynn for acting as unregistered agent while serving as the national security adviser, leaving open the possibility of jail time for Flynn.

“All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the President of the United States. That undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out."
=================================
Judge Sullivan said he was considering giving Flynn jail time considering the impact of his offenses.

Why two threads on the exact same CNN page?

4 separate threads on the same topic within 31 minutes. This is getting to be a tad much

**** just got real. Really real. The judge asked the prosecution if they'd ever considered charging him with treason.

That's right, boys and girls, treason. No more Fox News hothouse fantasies about entrapment, no more White House bull**** fantasy narrative.

Yeah, from what I'm reading on Twitter, this is not how most expected this to go. Apparently the judge is truly angry and disgusted.

This judge is making me very proud of an independent branch of government that is not going to bend over and take it. Good for Judge Sullivan.

Sounds like another post of yours that's irrelevant to what I stated.

The judge is pissed that Flynn isn't really taking full responsibility for his actions, he tried for a bull**** false narrative of entrapment, and the whole thing fell apart.

Interesting. Pretty well all the hardcore Trump supporters here support Flynn.

Yes,but: "Sullivan later corrected himself, noting Flynn's foreign lobbying ended prior to the beginning of the Trump administration."

These kind of people demand personal responsibility of others, but believe that themselves and others who share their political views are above that same call to personal responsibility. They harp on and on about "victimhood culture" all while projecting the worst elements of it.

They are the worst kind of hypocrites.

I wonder how the judge would feel if he learned about the many dual citizens serving in high office in these United States? Would he see that as treason or potential treason?

I agree that Flynn screwed up big time, but when one considers how immoral the atmosphere is inside the Beltway, Flynn was playing essentially the same game as many.

If the judge were to familiarize himself with what Sibel Edmonds learned while translating for the FBI, he might understand that what Flynn did is fairly well run of the mill behavior in DC.

Yes, but he also issued a stinging rebuke to Flynn, which was the entire point.

Do let's have you try and keep up better, hmmm?

His statement still stands: “All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Advisor to the President of the United States. That undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out.".

Trump labeled Michael Cohen a "Rat" yet wished Michael Flynn good luck at his sentencing today.

Obviously, Trump still doesn't understand honor and patriotism.

Just, no! His statement DOESN'T still stand. How clueless can you people be? He was never an "unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Advisor" - the judge was completely unprepared and admitted that he screwed up the whole timeline.


Sullivan has also clarified that Flynn was not acting as a foreign agent while serving in the government, as the judge had earlier alleged. Flynn was in contact with foreign officials before Trump became president.

Yawn. Essentially a distinction w/out a difference in this case, as it's not in dispute that he was an unregistered foreign agent working for another gov't while in a very high position in the Trump campaign and he lied to the FBI about it. No matter how much you dance around the fact, he essentially sold his country out. Acting as such an agent during the campaign does not negate that fact that he was compromised and ascended to the position of National Security Advisor while compromised.

Keep swinging for the fences. You'll hit something. Someday. Maybe.

Tanngrisnir goes for argument #3 after looking utterly foolish on the first two attempts.

Do you still think he committed treason?

Do you still believe that he was an unregistered foreign agent while serving as National Security Advisor?
