I’m not convinced that this was such a “lie” that was said by Flynn, and won’t be until, and unless, the full conversation is leaked and we, the public, can read it.
The Russian ambassador almost assuredly asked Flynn about the sanctions placed upon them by Obama in the yet-to-be-proven case that the Russians hacked the Democratic elections. Flynn might have said “we’ll look into it” and nothing more. That’s the kind of thing that is so trivial in a busy day that it is almost equal to saying “no comment”. It’s highly probable that he wouldn’t have remembered saying such a trivial comment as this. But after digging deep into his memory, the next day he stated to the Wash. Post he “couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.” imho, this is highly probable. Our brains do not register every single thing we say everyday and, in fact, we lose a lot of the trivial memories inside of a day.
imho a truth-seeking reader should not assume anything more about this conversation until we can read it. Statements by so-called "officials" don't cut it for me.
No – the real story here is that we the public do not have the transcripts of the conversation and the media is working with (or for) the neocons that infest the CIA to create a fictionalized account that the public will never be able to verify so that they could destroy a man who refused to toe the CIA propaganda line on U.S. foreign policy.
I am no supporter of Michael Flynn and completely disagree with his hawkish views on Iran. But even more than that, I absolutely abhor witch hunts on people where truth cannot be verified.
