Odd that more than 1 person has admitted that their involvement in a hoax was criminal as well.

Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about contacting Russian officials on behalf of then-President-elect Donald Trump.

The plea by Flynn, the first White House official to be charged in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, electrified Washington and set off intense debate among legal minds about what it portended for the future of the Trump White House.

The legal part of Flynn's thing was it was during the transition, not during the campaign. Isn't a national security person not allowed to talk to foreign countries?

Sure, but why did he feel the need to lie about it?

Intent, SNIPPY. Think intent and you might get a clue.

It is not a crime to talk to Russians.

It is a crime to talk with Russians and then lie about it on your clearance paperwork and to Congress.

It is a crime to lie about anything on your clearance paperwork and then to Congress and/or the FBI about it. What we're talking about here is the veracity of comment #1. "Odd one would plead guilty to a lawful action."

It's like Bill O'Lielly paid $10,000,000 to prove his innocence in a sexual harrasment case.
