It was only last year when Michael Flynn was fronting for Deadbeat Donald and leading the cheers, “Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!”
My, how times have changed. Disgraced Michael Flynn now seems to be chanting to Robert Mueller, “Lock me up! Lock me up! Lock me up!” General Flynn actually believed he could lie to the FBI and get away with it. He certainly knew it is a federal felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
Deadbeat Donald famously loves his generals like Flynn. Could it be because he believes they will lie for him? Indictments cannot be dismissed as “fake news.” Felons do not end up in fake prisons.
Rex Tillerson inadvertently spoke the truth and called Deadbeat Donald a moron. Speaking truth to power has consequences, of course. Unfortunately for us, this means the rather inept but moderate Tillerson will be replaced by Mike “The Hawk” Pompeo. Is this the beginning of the famous “fire and fury?”
My prediction: Deadbeat Donald will pardon Flynn (and Flynn’s son) and take a giant stride down the lonely road to impeachment. Cleaning up Deadbeat Donald’s travesties cannot begin a moment too soon.
