Here’s What You Need to Know About the Flynn Sentencing Hearing

Published

on

Tuesday, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn appeared in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to face sentencing for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The case stems from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe into Russian “collusion” between President Donald J. Trump and the Kremlin, for which there is still no evidence.

Fireworks flew in the courtroom as Judge Emmet Sullivan, appointed by former President William J. Clinton, suggested that Flynn could be charged with treason.

“You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the president!” he said. “Arguably, this undermines everything this flag over here stands for! Arguably, you sold your country out!”

But that was not true. Flynn’s conduct as a foreign agent ended in mid-November, 2016 around the time Trump was elected president and far before he was inaugurated. Someone must have alerted Sullivan that he was acting foolishly, because after a brief recess, the Judge apologized for his own hysteria – after the mainstream press had already written headlines linking Flynn to treason. Well done.

“I felt terrible about that,” Sullivan said in his apology. “I’m not suggesting he committed treason.”

Now, according to multiple reports, Flynn has agreed to postpone his sentencing until a later date.

sentencing postponed indefinitely with an update on March 13, 2019. Judge Sullivan has more questions about Special Counsel’s and FBI conduct,” said Sara Carter, one of the leading reporters on the “collusion” investigation.

Serious questions have been raised regarding Mueller’s conduct in obtaining Flynn’s guilty plea, and the manner in which he was interrogated before being caught in a lie during the investigation.

Nine of the 2020 Forbes Ten Wealthiest Americans Are Democrat-Affiliated Liberal Megadonors

Pure oligarchy, greed and corruption.

Forbes Magazine released its annual list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world this week, and nine of the top ten wealthiest Americans featured on the list appear to be staunch Democrats and liberal donors.

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Steve Ballmer, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Alice Walton were named as the wealthiest American citizens, all possessing a personal net worth of over 60 billion dollars. Nearly all of them are closely affiliated with Democrat politics in various capacities, most commonly as lavish donors to Democrat campaigns and liberal political causes.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the only exception, being a figure who appears unaffiliated with the political left, having donated considerably more money to Republicans than Democrats in the 2018 election cycle, although he donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Musk has vaguely affiliated himself with some conservatives, and opposed some of California’s coronavirus lockdown policies.

Bezos himself reportedly personally encouraged Mike Bloomberg to run for President, having feuded with President Trump personally at length over Amazon’s utilization of the Postal Service. He hasn’t donated to Biden, but his general affiliation with Democratic politics is indicated through his tacit Bloomberg endorsement.

Alice Walton, a Walmart heiress, comes from a traditionally Republican family, but is a Biden donor with an extensive history of supporting Democrats. The rest of the top 10 are reliable Democrat donors, donating to Republicans rarely, if at all. Mark Zuckerberg occasionally depicts himself as a political centrist independent of Silicon Valley neoliberal politics, but the Facebook platform engages in prolific censorship of conservatives, without applying the same tactics to the political left.

The wealthiest billionaire oligarchs are determined to use their political power to crush the life prospects of the everyday American and the traditional middle-class American way of life. The political right and real conservatives should oppose them at every turn, reinstating an economic vision that upholds small businesses over multinational corporations and entrepreneurship at a local, community level as an alternative to the domination of monopoly billionaires.
