The #JusticeForCarolyn is great. Showing how a fake news story on twitter can spread like wildfire. Like most of Trump's BS tweets. 

Him lashing out at Twitter would be so great if they deleted his account. They won't tho, shareholders are more important than the state of their country being a dumpster fire.

“The prosecutor has more control over life, liberty, and reputation that any other person in America. His discretion is tremendous. He can have citizens investigated and, if he is that kind of person, he can have this done to the tune of public statements and veiled or unveiled intimations. Or the prosecutor may choose a more subtle course and simply have a citizen’s friends interviewed. The prosecutor can order arrests, present cases to the grand jury in secret session, and on the basis of his one-sided presentation of the facts, can cause the citizen to be indicted and held for trial. He may dismiss the case before trial, in which case the defense never has a chance to be heard. Or he may go on with a public trial. If he obtains a conviction, the prosecutor can still make recommendations as to sentence, as to whether the prisoner should get probation or a suspended sentence, and after he is put away, as to whether he is a fit subject for parole. While the prosecutor at his best is one of the most beneficent forces in our society, when he acts from malice or other base motives, he is one of the worst.”

Somehow, Trump's approval ratings are holding relatively steady. They even got a bump. As of May 13, according to a Gallup poll, his job approval rating reached 49 percent, a tie for the highest of his presidency. This is low, but not that much lower than previous presidents. Obama began his second term in 2012 with a job approval rating of 46 percent. Furthermore, even amid the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, a recent CNN poll shows that respondents gave Trump a strong advantage over Biden in terms of his handling of the economy.

I think the justice system in the US is fucked up as a whole.

For a guy that hates western politicians, you sure can pivot from a question like one.

Of course he was entrapped. That whole deal was birthed as a political ploy.

I said railroaded. As in "set up". I will make it clear for you.

Do you believe Flynn was innocent of any criminal wrongdoing?

It happens to me often. I now start replies with placing a . or an 'asdajaksdj' as a place holder for the non quote. Then its a simple ctrl-z if my delete key brings up the adsda or . into the quote box.

These are not exactly legal terms but railroaded to me means framed, where entrapped is more about tricking someone into committing a crime.  In Flynn's case was he innocent of any wrongdoing related to Russia and tricked into lying for political reasons?  Most experts say that his lies were material because it related to their investigation into Russian influence in the election.  He lied about meetings he had pleaded guilty to the lies being material.  It is really only Barr that claims otherwise.  OK, Barr, Shogun, possibly you and anyone that thinks Barr is dealing in good faith.

It if helps for context, he plead guilty to save his son going through some legal shit. /internet says. Internet also says his lies were actually lost in translation so to speak - no FBI agents took notes or recorded audio and they also informed Flynn that he did not need a lawyer. Thats without touching on FISA or 302 fabrications.

Flynn's phone call to the Russian Amb. had to happen because in Dec2016, Obama expelled all the Russian diplomats. So it was either a phone call or a flight, right?
