Big Lies

In the wake of Michael Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI, Donald Trump seems to be all over the place. “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI,” he tweeted on Saturday. “He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!” According to CNN, Trump attorney John Dowd claims to have written the tweet.

But on Sunday, 45’s timeline remained active as he put in his two cents about the FBI.

“So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday ‘interrogation’ with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her?” he tweeted.

Later that day:

“After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History!” he said. “But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.”

Nervous much?

Simmons made a choice between ‘Right or Wrong,’ and did the right thing, admitting his guilt, and agreeing to pay his tax liabilities.”
