My How the Mighty Did Fall

General Michael Flynn, from Trump campaign national security consultant and then Trump Administration National Security Advisor chanting "Lock Her Up!" to President Trump's fired National Security Advisor and cooperating witness in the Mueller Investigation asking the judge: "Please don't lock me up, your honor."

15. Yes I did hear about it!

And I READ in the Sentencing Recommendation memo about the 19 meetings with Mueller and his staff over the course of a year in fulfillment of that cooperation agreement.

16. Any mention of collusion? Nope.

He helped give details on a Turkish issue.

How disappointing for you.

5. Do you think Michael Flynn is asking the judge for some jail time?

6. No, Flynn's statement for the judge has not been released to the public.

I would be surprised though if he asked the judge for wee a bit of jail time cause he knows that was a bad boy.

7. You would probably be surprised about

a lot of things based on reality rather than your lefty memes and talking points.

10. So you don't think that General Flynn will be asking the judge for no prison time?

Is that a righty meme and talking point: ask for jail time General Flynn. You'll show that Mueller who's boss!

8. Then I guess you should not have put it in quotation marks.

Or have qualified it as to being a statement you are creating but not attributing to him as actually saying it.

12. However...

Wikipedia states that quotation marks are "punctuation marks used in pairs in various writing systems to set off direct speech, a quotation, or a phrase." That said, what you are asking about is a phrase--whether IMAGINED or real--which means it should be enclosed in quotation marks.

17. Presumed to be attributed directly to a person.

Or in this case a lie.

4. "Guilty your honor." "Please don't lock me up, your honor"

“Michael Flynn provided substantial firsthand information about the content and context of interactions between the transition team and Russian government officials.”

11. So no collusion?

Or any of the other silly conspiracies you've been screaming about.

9. That's what I hear from almost every left-wing pundit

The "lock her up" chant, is why they went after Flynn.

13. Nah

Flynn lied about meeting with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. and Trump fired him for lying and then Mueller caught him in the lie which is why Flynn copped a plea.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Feb. 14, 2017: "The president was very concerned that Gen. Flynn had misled the vice president and others. The president must have complete and unwavering trust for the person in that position. The evolving and eroding level of trust as a result of this situation in a series of other questionable instances is what led the president to ask for Gen. Flynn's resignation."
