Just wait until we get a few more activist justices on the Supreme Court to legislate from the bench. We will have mandatory church attendance on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. If you don't go you will have to pay a nonattendance tax that will make your Obamacare premiums look cheap.

A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, cant be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?

oh well at least some of them were honest and were like 'uh we don't care, we're just here to make money'

which is, truthfully, what ALL of them are doing, some are just employing the strategy of pretending to care about social messages (they don't)

So we have flynn being sentenced, and the judge presiding over it has been a darling of the fox news / breitbart folks - but he's said that flynn is arguably a traitor to this country so their faith may be misplaced. Any bets on how long until they begin pretending that the judge has been a Democrat in disguise all along?

Yeah the whole fiasco of Flynn claiming that he was deliberately misled into lying is hilarious when the FBI interview showed the agents interviewing him were literally trying to coax him into the RIGHT answers and he still chose to lie.

I think this is as good a time as any to bring up that this is a real incongruity in our justice system. If anyone but a prosecutor was coaxing witnesses into giving answers they want in exchange for something of value (like not going to prison), it would be considered witness tampering.

And I thought Blagojevich was prosecuted in federal court? Trump can start by pardoning him. Might as well issue a blanket pardon for all offenses related to campaign finance law, under the grounds that the president believes the law is unconstitutional. Andrew Johnson issued a blanket pardon for everyone who fought against the US in the Civil War, so it can be done.

They weren't trying to coax answers out of him that they wanted. They were trying to get him to give the answers that weren't actually lies.

U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, former astronaut and current gun control advocate Mark Kelly and former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods, who left the GOP this year, have all considered running as Democrats for the post.


Some interesting choices there. Grant Woods is definitely in the Sinema mold of democrat considering he was very recently a republican, and I think McSally might have some trouble with him in 2020. I don't know enough about the other two.

Just checked in on how this all went down and wow that was a swerve. It almost can't be understated how disastrously that went for Flynn.

Judge point-blank made him answer whether he knew lying to the FBI was a crime (He did) and if he believed he was entrapped (He didn't.) Said he arguably sold his country out. Asked Mueller's prosecutor there if the SCO felt Flynn's actions could be charged under treason and if they considered it. (They were like "uhhhhh that's a serious question so we're hesitating to answer." Before later saying, we don't think so.) Judge stated how he disagreed with how Petraeus had gotten out of felony charges for his case (Flynn's lawyers had brought him up to compare to Flynn)

Flynn took the Judge's offer of a recess and came back to take the Judge's offer to "delay sentencing in the hopes he can point to further cooperation as credit" (Next status hearing is in March)

remember the special counsel's office recommended no jail time and this all happened.

He sounds like one of those law and order judges. Although, this doesn't really help Mueller's position. If defendants can't trust that their deal with the special counsel will keep them out of prison because it might be overturned by a judge, they'll be less willing to make deals. If Mueller's investigation is really in its closing stages though, that might not matter to him.
