Flynn apologizes to Pence: report

Last edited Mon Feb 13, 2017, 07:11 PM - Edit history (2)

Source: The Hill

National security adviser Michael Flynn has apologized after reportedly discussing U.S. sanctions with Russias ambassador before President Trump entered office, according to a new report.

Flynn directed most of his remorse to Vice President Mike Pence, USA Today said Monday, after Pence defended him and told CBS last month that Flynn never spoke about sanctions during his calls to Russia.

USA Today said it confirmed the Flynn-Pence phone call with a White House official speaking on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation.

Flynn now admits he may have discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December, but cannot be 100 percent certain, the official added.
Reports emerged last week that Flynn spoke with Kislyak about U.S. sanctions against Russia before Trumps Jan. 20 inauguration.

This might be a real moment. I just saw this on Twitter.

27. Exactly what I was going to post! I'm furious.

I don't think he worked in a vacuum, though, and am sure tRump knew very well about the calls to Russia. Is this not a high crime and misdemeanor?

5. Mike Flynn is at best

a forgetful idiot and at worst a treasonist Russian asset. He might think about hiring a food taster...just saying. He's not equipped to be swimming in the deep end of this pool.

7. If he was using encrypted communications, I think it's the latter.

You didn't just forget that you discussed a certain topic. You took positive steps to CONCEAL the fact that you discussed a certain topic. The only reason we ever heard about it is because the spooks at the NSA who intercepted and decoded the conversation think it's the latter.

6. Apologized for WHAT, again?

A. Colluding with a hostile, foreign power that threw the election in their favor, and promising to reward them by undoing the sanctions once they're in office, or...

B. Making Pence look stupid on national TV?


If he's apologizing for A, he needs to apologize to the whole country. If he's apologizing for B, forget about it. Pence manages to look stupid on national TV all by himself.

12. Hey Flynn, your "apology" is not accepted

you belong to a team, that has cavorted with a known state actor that has murdered people and invaded a country, and to top it all off, knew that servers on a political party had been hacked, to turn an election over to your boss that doesn't know s**t, and is, lets me clue you in a sexual predator.
So in essence you should be brought before a court, along with his family your team and the worthless right wing, turn a blind eye fascists republican Congress, that has and is failing to ask questions, into the public preview just like we did during Watergate, Iran Contra-------------your party is the most most corrupt fascists party, and I thought Mussolini was bad, but your team is now number one.

But your ilk for over 8 years attacked a man and his family based on a Alex Jones, Breibart conspiracy theory, and a do nothing
gerrymandered Congress that thinks that the citizens of this country just like yourself should pay for the high crimes and misdemeanors-------do you understand this? You are a three star failure, that should never have been given a whistle to blow, because of your incompetence, right along with your boss and Congress.

ever since Watergate and Iran/Contra, these fascists have been given a pass, sure some had to resign or went to jail, but the head cheese at the the top of the Rat F*** keep getting away with this stuff and a right wing Congress, that has completely turned there heads and put them in the sand, and I can bet you one dollar, that Obama would have been brought before the Congress and Senate and been tried and convicted---------no doubt in my mind

Well, of course - that makes it all OK then. Pffhhh...

Seriously, how could Flynn not realize that any conversation with the Russian Embassy would be monitored by the Intel agencies?

Even he isn't THAT stupid - which makes me wonder if something else isn't up with this whole affair. I don't know what exactly but something about this just doesn't pass the smell test.

This call was done under the express consent of Trump at the least, and more likely at his bidding.

If Flynn does fall on his sword here it's to save Trump and Pence.

35. So he apologizes and everything is fine then?

So he swung the election and a simple, I'm Sorry, fixes it all up.
Uh huh.
More Trump fantasyland thinking.

But if he cans Flynn, Flynn might spill the beans and then they are all sunk.

What do you bet he will apologize and Trump will keep him around so he'll stay quiet?
