As you know, he broke the law and lied about it. Like most of Trump's team he is unfit for high office and should be in jail.

In what way did Flynn break the law? Talking to a Russian is not breaking the law. Talking to Chinaman is not breaking the law but North Korea and the United States are still officially at war. Flynn is the fall guy who bravely and self-sacrificingly took the heat off Trump.

We are told by the BBC that American law says that civilians not working for the Government are not allowed to inform or negotiate with foreign powers about government policy, especially, I suppose, to attempt to undermine that Government in agreement with a power generally perceived to be the enemy. That would make them what we call traitors.

As a civilian and talk to a civilian in Rhodesia or the Dominican Republic about politics does not make me a Traitor. Are you thinking about the 5th column?

If you are planning to sabotage government policy and making promises about what you'll do for enemy support, I think that there is a fair case for using the word 'traitor'. While Nazi Southern Rhodesia existed I certainly persuaded my Labour Party Branch to vote to bomb Beit Bridge to help destroy Smith's nazis, but not as a deal with any foreign government.

If this was done under the Obama administration conservatives would be in a uproar about how he's a piece of shit who should have never had the position and should now be in jail.

Stop letting your party loyalties get in the way of rightfully criticizing the government, or anyone else for that matter, of not doing their job properly!
Lied to his country IF OBAMA did it? Benghazi wasn't about a video, lie! People couldn't keep their insurance LIE! He didn't get us out of the wars we were in, LIE! do I need to go into Hillary's lies?

Seven pages of the deluded arguing that Flynn did nothing wrong, and the OP starts with him resigning.

It's a little late to proclaim innocence after the defendant has plead guilty.

What law did Flynn break and what is the prosecutorial history of this law that the DOJ would have to rely on to prosecute Flynn?
