Amazed at Twitter folks gasping: "But Flynn pleaded guilty!!!" I'll remember that when next nasty dictator assures his political opponent signed full confession. Absolute power (here DOJ and FBI) corrupts absolutely. Flynn's son/livelihood was threatened--of course he signed.

How does any self-respecting journalist even do that? Maybe, to quote this author, it is a "testament to the hubris, [Democratic] loyalty, and borderline lawlessness that sit at the heart" of today's Beltway media.

Better: How the Flynn story perfectly describes the media. As in: write an entire story in which you never mention the atrocious FBI behavior--as documented by veteran U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen--that led DOJ to withdraw charges.

The Flynn pardon is your latest reminder that Mueller never managed one prosecution remotely related to the topic assigned. Collusion was an embarrassing bust. So to save face, Comey's special counsel hounded people on unrelated (and in Flynn's case) unsupported charges

In a better world, the case would have been dismissed with prejudice, an on-the-record censure of appalling FBI and DOJ behavior. But that’s why the judge refused to do it.. It would have been too embarrassing, too galling for the haters." via

"The Flynn pardon was necessary—to correct a corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation, a rogue special counsel, an unprincipled federal judge, and an embarrassingly complicit media." via

Joe Biden has won the election pending recounts, and there was little or no violence. Would it have been the same if Donald Trump had won? via

4) All of which is why Ds have special obligation to now welcome recounts, legal challenges. Maybe everything worked correctly; it is on the Trump campaign to prove otherwise. But now more than ever is important to go through process, make sure we got it right, reassure public.
