Republicans Think Flynn's Plea Isn't A 'Serious Matter'

REPUBLICANS DON'T THINK FLYNN'S GUILTY PLEA IS A 'SERIOUS MATTER,' POLL FINDS

BY JESSICA KWONG ON 12/7/17 AT 10:34 AM

The majority of Republicans do not think the guilty plea of President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn is a serious matter and believe the investigation into dealings with Russia is politically motivated, a new poll shows.

CBS News asked 1,120 American voters—including Republicans, Democrats and Independents—a series of questions about the ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between Trump campaign officials and the Russians, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In response to a question concerning Flynn's guilty plea to a charge of lying to the FBI about conversations with a Russian ambassador, and his subsequent cooperation with Mueller, 59 percent of Republicans said it was “not a serious matter” for the Trump administration.

By contrast, 91 percent of Democrats and 68 percent of Independents considered it a “serious matter.” Respondents were similarly split along party lines in other questions posed by the poll, which was the first to be conducted since Flynn’s guilty plea on Friday.

In answer to the question of whether Mueller's investigation is "justified" or "politically motivated," 81 percent of Republicans said they believe it is “politically motivated,” while 74 percent of Democrats said the investigation is “justified.” Independents were all but split down the middle, with 42 percent saying it was justified, 48 percent saying it was politically motivated and 10 percent unsure.

1. That's because they're too fucking dumb or blind (or whistling past the graveyard)

to understand that a guilty plea to something that isn't such a "serious matter" means Flynn is singing like Pavarotti. He had a ton of possible felonies hanging over his head, and being charged with only that one means he gave up the goods to the investigation. Let's see what they say when the rest of the indictments - Kushner, Sessions, Pence, maybe Trump himself - come out.

3. It's a felony!

Not only that, what was the reason to commit the felony? What was he covering up by lying?

If they can't figure out that his guilty plea to a FELONY is serious, then they are dumber than shit.
