Of course Flynn pleading guilty and cooperating with the Special Counsel is no big deal. That is why trump fired FBI Director Comey when Comey refused to end the investigation, and then trump bragged about obstructing the investigation to the Russians.
The fact that it was the president’s son-in-law, Kushner, who told Flynn to contact the Russians gives trump lots of space from the lies and the crimes. Right?
The fact that trump’s son, dim don, took the meeting with the Russians and then lied about the real purpose of the meeting, and trump wrote the lying memo on what the meeting was about. Well, maybe not so much space there.
The fact that the trump campaign repeatedly said nobody in the campaign met with the Russians, and we already know that at least eight did, doesn’t matter. After all, these investigations take years and this one has just gotten started and already there are two guilty pleas and three other indictments. Tams is right. No sense pushing it, there is plenty of fun ahead.

Uh wrong. Contact all the foreign heads of state.

All happened after the fact that the Clinton Campaign bought a nefarious dossier and leak it to the press before handing over to the FBI.

Didn't that lead to the FISA taps? And who unmasked Mr. Flynn? a private citizen having a conversation with a Russian who was a fixture in DC.

What heads of state besides Putin are you referring to? The serial, self-confessed, sexual predator has alienated the heads of our two closest allies: PM May and PM Merkel.
Here are some sites that show how much the US under trump is hated:

Unless you can read Russian you will have a very hard time finding any foreign country praising trump. Netanyahu likes him, but neither are really well liked in Israel.

The White House is desperately trying to distance itself from Flynn. They cite the fact that he was the head of the DIA under President Obama while conveniently forgetting that President Obama fired Flynn, and then warned trump about him. They are forgetting that acting AG Yates warned trump that Flynn was compromised. Despite that, Flynn and trump were best buds.
Mueller believes that Flynn can connect the WH to the Russians because prosecutors offer favorable plea bargains only when the cooperating defendant can provide evidence that incriminates someone “up the ladder” — someone more senior than the defendant himself.
Flynn is prepared to testify that the communications that he lied about, concerning conversations with the Russian ambassador in December 2016, were discussed with multiple members of the transition team — including one “senior official” and one “very senior member.”
It is probably Mr. Kushner who is in greatest jeopardy now. He failed to disclose approximately 100 foreign contacts on his security clearance application; each omission is a potential false statement. Mr. Flynn may have information about conversations with Mr. Kushner that would demonstrate that the omissions on Mr. Kushner’s form were intentional, and therefore criminal.
The question is, can trump make money from this highly entertaining reality show after he is impeached?

. Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea is a “show of weakness” for Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller is a Comey side kick, and is sucking up Americas tax money and making a mockery of the law.

"Mueller is a Comey side kick, and is sucking up Americas tax money and making a mockery of the law."

Look at Trump's tax bill sucking up America's money to allow the rich and corporations to become even richer - where are the jobs? Jobs = DEMAND and the middle Class get pennies while the rich and corporations get billions.

As for "mockery of the law" look to Trump again - conflicts of interest, nepotism, scandals, bigoted racial tweets, Trump's presidency is a mockery of American law and customer.

You need to specifically elaborate on that one, what do you mean sucking up Americans money.

Don't understand what ou are talking about

And BTW ABC had to retract their Flynn story, it was made up

"what do you mean sucking up Americans money."

Remember the trigger? IF the economy does not grow magically as proposed, if the deficit is as economists projects, the tax cuts for the middle class will be reviewed and spending will be cut, but not the corporate tax cuts. So the corporate tax cuts are permanent, and military spending is off limits so aid to dependent children, unemployment safety nets all the social entitlements will be cut sucking up all that spending to keep the tax cuts for the rich.

Agreed. But CBO projections are based upon a 1.9% annual growth rate. A rather robust number under Obomanomics given the high taxes, excessive mandates, terrible trade policies, and open borders for masses of low killed workers.

However that number is historically low, from WW2 up to Obama the number is 3.4%. At 2.6% this tax reform is revenue neutral.

I'm normally not a betting man without a golf club in my hand, but the bar is set very low and the odds are pretty good.

If you look at Simpson-Bowles the major differences are treating all capital gains as ordinary income, and the phase out of the ESI tax exclusion.

I would be hesitant to bet against America at this point in history. But here in this forum there are many rooting for failure.
