I’m not that big on throwing people in jail (I don’t think I’ve ever written much about wanting to prosecute people before), but I think Flynn should probably be prosecuted for this. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about a blow job. Flynn should get a little scrutiny for lying about jeopardizing the safety of the free world. You may think that sounds alarmist but I doubt many people in Finland or Estonia think it does.
Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn denied to FBI agents in an interview last month that he had discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States before President Trump took office, contradicting the contents of intercepted communications collected by intelligence agencies, current and former U.S. officials said.
The Jan. 24 interview potentially puts Flynn in legal jeopardy, as lying to FBI is a felony, but any decision to prosecute would ultimately lie with the Justice Department. Some officials said bringing a case could prove difficult in part because Flynn may attempt to parse the definition of sanctions.
