    Check it out:

    The FBI has reviewed intercepted phone calls between national security adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the US and has found no evidence of wrongdoing, it was revealed Monday.

    The calls were made in late December and picked up as part of routine electronic surveillance of Russian officials. They did not reveal any illicit ties between Flynn and Russia, according to the Washington Post.

    Flynn pleaded guilty to a felony. He's not going to be "cleared."

    He is cleared in regards to this project about collusion of Trump with Russia.

    Which isn't that miraculous considering that there's nobody who will ever be indicted for this.

    I think we all know by now this is just a dog and pony show the left puts on in hope of crippling the ability of the President to act on anything else.

    I suggest you check the date of that article.

    The NY Post's conclusions seem to have been premature based on incorrect information.

    Your reading "to do" list is backed up 3 months?

    Suggest you get to it and don't post until you are up to speed!

    Actually, he pleaded guilty in connection to precisely that - collusion of the Trump campaign with Russia, which Flynn lied about to investigators. As part of the plea deal, Flynn is not going to be charged with any more crimes.

    As of February 23, 2018, Mueller has secured guilty pleas from five people: Flynn, Gates,[3][4] Papadopoulos, private citizen Richard Pinedo,[5] and Dutch attorney Alex van der Zwaan.[6][7][8][9] Additional indictments have been issued against Manafort, thirteen Russian citizens, and three Russian entities. On April 3, 2018, van der Zwaan was sentenced to 30 days in prison, and fined $20,000.[10]

    Do you think all of these people should be released and exonerated?

    I am not sure about the specifics of each one of these, but these are mostly all unrelated process violations.

    Flynn plead guilty to "lying to the FBI," read: not being able to keep all of your cards in order during an investigation.

    In fact, many people frequently talk about the Mueller probe as being an exercise to generate procedural violations.

    Many people ...... where? Fox News, Infowars, Daily Caller, etc. etc.

    Flynn was directed by senior Trump transition officials ( reportedly Jared Kushner for one) to talk to the Russian Ambassador to undermine US foreign policy before Trump was President. This was an extension of the collusion between the Russian government and Trump officials that had been ongoing for more than six months. He than denied doing so to the FBI but unfortunately for him these conversations were recorded by our spy agencies. So his crime was far from "procedural"; it was part of the big picture of collusion. That was why Trump pressured Comey to drop the Flynn case shortly after his lies became public.

    Yeah, you're not sure about the specifics, but Trump is as innocent as the whitest dove, so clearly all of these people should go free, right?

    Lying to the FBI is not a "process violation" - if you don't want to get in trouble for lying to the FBI, an easy way to prevent it is to not lie to the FBI. Money laundering and identity theft are not "process violations" either.
