4 Pressing Questions About Michael Flynn’s Confession

Catch me up.

On Friday, former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his interactions with the Russian ambassador a year ago. Flynn’s talks with the ambassador were reportedly part of a coordinated effort to get started on foreign policy before President Donald Trump was in office.

Glenn’s take:

Bottom line: Flynn’s guilty plea to one count of lying to the FBI doesn’t look good, but it’s not grounds for impeaching Trump on its own.

“If all we get out of this is a lying general and a tax-evading lobbyist, that’s a pretty big letdown,” Glenn said. “Who or what comes next is anyone’s guess.”

Both sides are being unhelpful. Those who are overly eager for impeachment and those trying to overlook the president’s shady dealings both need to wait until we learn more.

Glenn had several questions he’d like answered to know what’s going on:

  • What did Flynn promise to the FBI?
  • Will the investigation unearth truly damning information?
  • Was Flynn’s confession a preamble to worse things?
  • Why can’t Trump get more competent attorneys?

GLENN: It finally happened on Friday. Impeachment hopefuls and resistance warriors like Keith Olbermann had been waiting with bated breath for months. Salivating over what secrets might Flynn reveal.

We found out Friday -- actually, we didn't find out anything on Friday, but we found out a little, I guess, maybe. Highly anticipated ruling against General Flynn was, wait for it, lying to the FBI. The Mueller hammer that everyone was waiting for on the surface seemed a little underwhelming to some. The question was, what did General Flynn promise to the FBI to receive such a small slap on the wrist? If the investigation stops here and this is all they've got, they've got nothing, I don't think that's the case. After millions of dollars and thousands of man-hours invested, if all we get into this is a lying general and a tax evading lobbyist, that's a pretty big letdown. Manafort and Flynn could very well be act one of a complicated three-act play. That's my guess. Who or what comes next is anyone's guess. But the hyperbolic media reports, the finger pointing, the impeachment calls, that's not helping. And those who say, you got nothing. The president is fine. That's not helpful either.

The president defeating his defense, after every single allegation really isn't the smartest, Mr. President. I don't know where you -- it's like your attorneys are from H&R Block. Those are tax attorneys, man. They can't help you on this. Stop listening to your really crappy attorneys.

So let's get back on track. The investigation better start producing fruit soon. And we all need to look at that fruit and start accepting that fruit, no matter which way it goes. Russian interference is an undisputed fact, Putin is a threat. Russia is a threat. The entire intelligence community is on agreement on this. Russian intelligence services, launched a campaign to publicly sway opinion via social media. They appear to be involved in the Fusion GPS dossier and a meeting at Trump Tower.

More Trump administration officials could be involved, but so can the Democrats and the Clinton campaign and a laundry list of other Americans. This is a serious issue. And if we don't fix this now, imagine what might and what probably will happen during the midterms and the 2020 election.

If this was just the opening salve zero of a much larger Russia influence operation, we're in serious trouble. The media needs to stop with the overreaction, and so do the reporters. Those calling for impeachment every time something comes out, they need to come down. Those who have already made up their minds that he is guilty or not guilty, will also find themselves missing the actual threat. So to all the investigators, the FBI, the DOJ, and all other investigations that are open on this, do your jobs, be thorough, do it quickly, there is too much at stake here.

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
