We have now gone full circle from General Flynn?

In January of 2017, General Michael Flynn was captured in a phone call with the Russians. Red flags went up everywhere. This was the National Security Advisor on the phone having secret phone calls with the Russians. (Photos had already been published of General Flynn sitting at a table with Vladimir Putin) The suspicions were already there.

It was up to the Republicans to do something about it. They were then in charge of the House, the Senate, and the White House. They were in charge of everything.

It was up to them to do something about the charges against General Flynn, which had been recorded by our FBI. The inauguration came and went and General Flynn remained in his position, with full access to all of America's secrets.

There were rumors in the press that Mr Trump had business interests in Moscow, where he wanted to build a new Moscow Trump Tower. It was later proven, also with testimony from his lawyer, Michael Cohen, that they were indeed negotiating to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Also, they were negotiating during the entirety of the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Republicans felt very pressured to do something. So they appointed a Special Counsel, named Robert Mueller, to investigate the charges that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 election? That also, was proven to be true.

Then we had all the controversies in between. From Russia, to Syria, to China, to North Korea, to Saudi Arabia, there seemed to be something going on just below the surface?

Additionally, there were all the "private" phone calls between Trump and Putin?

Eventually, the polls began to go in a more negative direction for Mr Trump. Now, we see a bit of election anxiety in the Republican Party. They are very concerned that Mr Trump may take down a large number of them in November.

More than three and a half years later, it seems we have come full circle? Hillary and Nancy were correct. All the roads do lead to Putin.

The Republican Party is at a crossroads. They are back at the same spot they were in January of 2017. Do they appoint another "Special Counsel"?

1. And Trump wants to pardon Flynn

who was in bed with the Russians. I wonder how the judge will feel about the DOJ case now?

2. Sure, Bill Barr will appoint himself and the Republicans will sing his praises.

3. The Republicans got money from Putin,

they are also compromised. Keep the bastards tied to Trump, they need to go down with him. I have zero expectations that they will put country over Russian rubles.

5. Flynn could have delivered on his statement "he has a story to tell" and

all this tap dancing is the slow cover and exit. The fear of being tagged and disappeared is probably strong for a lot of Trump associates, especially those with children. All speculation, of course.

6. Trump probably does not discourage those types of thoughts...

Loyalty is a one-way street with him.
