What the Flynn Plea Means, by Andrew McCarthy.
Obviously, it was wrong of Flynn to give the FBI false information; he could, after all, have simply refused to speak with the agents in the first place.
That said, as I argued early this year, it remains unclear why the Obama Justice Department chose to investigate Flynn. There was nothing wrong with the incoming national-security adviser’s having meetings with foreign counterparts or discussing such matters as the sanctions in those meetings. Plus, if the FBI had FISA recordings of Flynn’s conversations with Kislyak, there was no need to ask Flynn what the conversations entailed.
Don’t speak to agents of the state nowadays. Their organizations are politicized, and controlled by the PC left.
Lion of the Blogosphere casts light on why Flynn lied at all:
The implication of the NY Times article is that Flynn felt guilty about having so many meetings with the Russian ambassador (not that it’s actually illegal for a top-level member of a presidential transition team to meet with an ambassador from a foreign country, in fact I think it’s routine)
But the US Government had tapped his phone — they record all phone calls now, apparently — so they knew he lied.
