Flynn Family: He 'Took Biggest Fall' for Trump

President Donald Trump should pardon his former national security adviser and campaign aide Michael Flynn, who "has taken the biggest fall," Flynn's brother said Tuesday. In a since deleted tweet, Joseph Flynn said Trump must get the former Army general off the hook for his December 1 guilty plea stemming from his contacts with the former Russian ambassador. The plea deal is a part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign. "About time you pardoned General Flynn who has taken the biggest fall for all of you given the illegitimacy of this confessed crime in the wake of all this corruption," Joseph Flynn tweeted, though the post was deleted after about 15 minutes.

Flynn's tweet came after Trump posted his own mini-screed on Twitter complaining about Mueller's probe, among other things.

Trump won't pardon Flynn because doing so will do nothing to help Trump. Flynn has most certainly turned over the information and answered Mueller's questions. By doing so he has likely provided information that would be used to prosecute him and his son at the state level if he tries to back out of his deal with the feds.

" given the illegitimacy of this confessed crime"

Flynn shoulda thought of that before there was anything to confess. The time to avoid the crime is not to do the crime. Run, don't walk, to the nearest exit at the first hint. Don't get so enamored with yourself that you think your invulnerable. Don't hitch your wagon to a common scum of the earth.

Of course, Michael Flynn didn't do any of those thing. He took off the uniform of his country and put on the uniform of a family steeped in a life of skullduggery and a history of serving only themselves.

It was the common denominator of greed and power that brought the two of them together.

Flynn doesn't deserve sympathy for being that stupid.

Let's be perfectly clear.

Flynn is a traitor to his country.

He forgot his sworn duty to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, Foreign and Domestic.

Trump is doing the same thing by not fully informing the American People of details of the attack on elections and our Democratic Institutions by a Hostile Foreign Power and taking decisive action to protect us against further attacks.

I have NO sympathy for anyone involved.

Semper Fi
