Special Counsel Robert Mueller declined to recommend prison time for General Michael Flynn in court proceedings on Tuesday.
The former Army Lieutenant General and brief White House National Security Advisor had been cooperating with prosecutors, pleading guilty to a singular charge of lying to the FBI in an interview related to the agency’s investigation of the supposed 2016 Russian election hack.
Flynn has never been demonstrated as having committed crimes unrelated to the initial FBI investigation of alleged “Russian meddling” that was in place before Mueller was appointed. The single technicality he’s facing charges for, is a result of the investigation, not a root cause of it.
It’s possible now that Flynn’s attorneys will file a motion to dismiss the charges entirely, with an understanding that the Special Counsel’s office will sign off on the motion. If they’re successful in doing so, it would represent a form of complete vindication for the retired military officer.
Flynn became prominent as the author of “Field of Fight,” a book on national security strategy on radical Islam, and for his endorsement and support of Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
The following statement was attributed to the Special Counsel’s Office in declining to recommend prison time for Flynn:
“Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”
A vindication for Flynn would also represent an embarrassing defeat for the Deep State’s efforts to use illegally-obtained transcripts of phone calls in order to criminally implicate him.
Flynn had been “unmasked” by anonymous figures within to U.S “intelligence community” seeking to push him out of his role as National Security Advisor. That entailed anonymously leaking a transcript of a surveilled conversation between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
