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.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
