Originally posted by @whodeyFlynn's lies were part of the ongoing collusion between Russian officials and Trump's cronies. Specifically he spoke to the Russian Ambassador to the US to undermine US policy towards Russia before Trump was in office. He then lied about this to the FBI:
Currently they are destroying the life of general Flynn over only one lie to the FBI, but to date, people like Hillary have yet to held to account for any of their lies.
The lies that Flynn told FBI agents:
Flynn claimed he did not ask Kislyak to attempt to "refrain from escalating the situation" after sanctions were imposed against Russia by the Obama administration during a December 29, 2016 conversation.
Flynn "did not recall" that Kisylak told him that Russia planned a moderate response to the sanctions thanks to that conversation.
Flynn claimed that he did not ask Kislyak to delay or defeat a pending vote on a U.N. Security Council resolution during a conversation on December 22, 2016.
And guess what?
Flynn admitted in his plea that senior transition officials directed his contacts with Russian officials in late December of last year.
