Trump’s Michael Flynn Defense Has Been Dismantled: They Never Saw It Coming

If you had told me just three years ago what the current American political situation is in 2019, I would have laughed in your face. In truth, I have still not got my head around the fact that the current President of the United States and leader of the free world is that guy who made a living off of being a massive douchebag to everyone on The Apprentice. I certainly would never have believed that this man would run for the Presidency – and win – on a staunchly populist, anti-establishment platform, despite being a billionaire who made his money off real estate and has declared bankruptcy a bunch of times, making him basically the epitome of the actual establishment.

Perhaps most unbelievable of all, though, is the necessity for and revelations from the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as commissioned by the Department of Justice. Just the idea that the President might have actually colluded with Russia in his efforts to get elected, and potentially obstructed justice in the aftermath in a desperate attempt to cover it up. The fact that we still see fairly inconspicuous news headlines that casually toss about the idea that our President might or might not be a secret Russian agent truly boggles the mind.

There has, of course, been significant progress made by Mueller as he digs deeper and deeper and gets ever closer to the truth of what happened. The head count is rising by the day, with the biggest names to have found themselves on the receiving end of the Mueller wrath including Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and – of course – former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who admitted lying to the FBI.

However, inevitably, in Trump’s mind, none of these men actually did anything wrong. In his head, the whole world is working against him in an almighty witch hunt to take him down, with the Deep State doing everything it can to smear him as it tries to dislodge him from his position. That is why his public defenses of Michael Flynn tend to center around the laughable notion of the Deep State and allegations of Mueller’s investigation team being “full of Democrats“, as if that’s how politics works.

That’s why it was such a relief to hear that the judge in Flynn’s trial did not hold back in his condemnation of the man’s awful offenses, even using the word “treason” and pledging to ignore Mueller’s recommendation that he go free because he was cooperative and give him a hefty prison sentence anyway. No one, especially Trump and Flynn, saw that coming!
