Well it seems that we perceive politics and those who are presently active in a diametrically opposed manner. However you do appreciate The Band, The Tide, George Straight, Merle Haggard and the greatness of America in general so you are ok in my book.Wow, whether intentionally or not, you just described Barack Obama more perfectly than I thought possible from a Lib.
What I'm against is investigations that are in search of a crime. We knew what the crime was during Nixon's days. We knew what the crime was in the Iran/Contra investigation...not so clear for WhiteWater or Benghazi (other than the obvious terrorists attacking the consulate)....
We knew what the crime was at the start of Crossfire...the Russians had broken US law. What we needed to find out was whether or not the Trump campaign had encouraged that crime in any way.
That's why I love America. There are always more things to agree on then there are to disagree on.Well it seems that we perceive politics and those who are presently active in a diametrically opposed manner. However you do appreciate The Band, The Tide, George Straight, Merle Haggard and the greatness of America in general so you are ok in my book.

If you have evidence of illicit behavior by Flynn, you should be forthcoming and post it. Lots of military and political people (from both parties) get jobs after they retire that involves contact with foreign people. 99.9% of their work is legal, but can easily be twisted by demagogues into apparent "disloyalty." Making vague and unsubstantiated accusations is no way to present a coherent argument. Remember, the FBI looked into Flynn for months both before and after he became Trump's designee for NSA, and they found "no derogatory information" in deciding to close down the investigation (and remember, this was after they tapped the Kislyak call). The only "crime" you can find any actual evidence of is his refusal to play ball with Obama in gaslighting the American people that he had "al Queda on the run" and then going on to participate in the "lock her up" chant at the Republican convention.
The unmasking (apparently) is not illegal, in and of itself. The illegality was in leaking his name to the WaPo to further the "collusion" conspiracy by implying the call was in some way an indication of a treasonous "repayment" for Russian "assistance" for helping Trump get elected. Answer me this - if the "law enforcement and intel personnel were acting in good faith," why did they all go on TV in a seemingly coordinated effort to boldly state that they "had the evidence" of "collusion," but then, when put under oath in congress, each and every one of them stated that they really had none? It's easy to "trust" these people if you ignore their seeming corruption in this matter.
So it's okay that they railroaded a 33 year military veteran who was appointed national security adviser to a duly elected POTUS simply because they do it all the time? Answer me this - did you believe Mueller when he said Iraq possessed WMDs?
Are you aware of his less than stellar record?

Neither Mueller nor the sleaze bags at the top of the FBI (Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, et al) are people I want to stand with (nor are people like Brennan and Clapper who had front row seats to the politicization of the intelligence apparatus).
And in case you haven't noticed, Barr is attempting to change DOJ policy, so why don't you support him?
Obamagate Update: Brennan praises Durham
Former CIA Director John Brennan says he is willing to be interviewed by John Durham, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut investigating the origins of the Russia probe, while maintaining that he has “nothing to hide.”
Brennan, speaking with MSNBC, said he has yet to be contacted by Durham but said he would appear for an interview with him and his team of investigators.
“I feel very good that my tenure at CIA and my time at the White House during the Obama administration ... that I was not engaged in any type of wrongdoing or activities that cause me to worry about what this investigation may uncover,” Brennan said Friday. “So, I welcome the opportunity to talk with the investigators....
...Brennan called Durham a “well-respected individual from the Justice Department.”
