I wish I could agree with this article, which argues that Michael Flynn has retroactively registered as a foreign agent in order to set himself up for leniency when Trump and Pence are investigated.
It still begs the question of why Michael Flynn is suddenly doing this. By registering now as a foreign agent, he’s admitting he broke the law by not registering while he was on the take. He’s voluntarily implicating himself in a past crime in an attempt to now get himself on the right side of the law. You know who does that? Someone who’s listening to his lawyer. And you know what else lawyers tell their guilty clients? Flip on your bosses and sing like a canary in exchange for leniency or immunity. Flynn is already Trump and Pence’s worst nightmare – and it’s just getting started.
I think we are past the point where Republicans can be held accountable for anything. They control all three branches of government, and they will quite blatantly misuse their power to avoid both investigations and prosecutions. I hope I’m wrong, but I think the rank and file are more interested in enriching the rich than preserving (or should l say, recovering) our form of government.
