Yes the BBC. It's superior to RT, your go-to news source.

In context, Flynn's faux pas occurred with his being a member of an administration whose love affair with Putin has been noticed world wide.

For anyone who's had access to Russian state media, Russians were assured of a Trump win and the removal of sanctions.

And then there's the little "white" lie Flynn told to Pence.

The SOB did the right thing and resigned. Now, every contact with the Russians needs to be brought into the light, along with Trump's tax returns.
I have never thought about proper grammar being cute considering the only way to talk about another person is using third person grammar rules.

The rest of your post had nothing to do with my post.

Please show the community here how many time in all my posts that I have used RT. I did a few times, deliberately, and got the expected nonsense in return. IOW, just an attempt at some sort of slur on your part. And another FAIL.

He lied to the FBI when being questioned about whether or not he talked about the sanctions. He said he did not and then they uncovered evidence that he did. WHich is why he was fired. The press found out about the intelligence report showing him discussing sanctions with the Ambassador. And the WHite House knew that for weeks but only fired him after the info came out.

It's a felony to lie to the FBI when being questioned.

WRONG! He was fired by the President. For lying to the FBI and the Vice President. Lying to the FBI is a felony. No falling on the sword, his boss is still in the hot seat over this stuff.

Your delusions don't count as evidence. That stuff isn't real, even though you really want it to be.

Here's what is real, Trump is a disaster, and this is only the beginning.

That's why North Korea and Russia are acting like President Pussy won't do anything, because a tough talking pussy, is still a pussy.
Notice fuhrer pussy trump has not said a word about the Russian spy ship 30 miles off our north east shore or the Russian planes buzzing our war ships. As you so correctly pointed out, trump is a pussy

It is not a felony for Flynn to have lied to the FBI denying that he spoke to the Russians or any other denial to the FBI that was a lie.

Carter was a true Christian and a great man, to this day he is still contributing.

It is a crime to lie when being questioned, that's a fact. Whether or not he is charged is different. But yes, it is a crime to lie to the FBI.
