Loyalty belongs to God, family and nation. Not to a state or politicians.
I can not see any reason Flynn would be obligated to be truthful with these 2 FBI agents.
The FBI has no business interrogating an appointed National Security official about foreign policy. As far as I am concerned– the FBI has no business questioning official policy decisions being contemplated or made by an incoming administration. If I were Flynn, my sentiment would be that 2 FBI agents don’t have a “need to know” the answers to the questions that they are asking– so I would be obtuse in my answers.
Serious question– Why are the FBI agents even asking these questions? The FBI’s duty is to provide information to policy makers– not browbeat policy makers about potential policy. I am very uncomfortable with the idea that : 1. FBI agents even have transcripts or phone calls of policy makers. 2. The FBI feels entitled to interject itself and question potentially policy decisions 3. Use the force of law as a threat when questioning policy makers.
As far as I am concerned– the conversations between Flynn and Kislyak were setting the groundwork for the incoming administration’s foreign policy; did not concern the FBI in any way, and Flynn had no duty to discuss or even be honest with these 2 agents cause, quite simply, they did not “need to know”.
Seriously– This is truly disgusting. Why are these questions even being asked? Establishing a foreign policy or a relationship with a foreign dignitary is not a crime let alone worthy of investigation.
PSA Any police officer submitting in any way by kneeling or any other form of capitulation is guilty of dereliction of duty to the sacred oath sworn when entering the position as a public servant. Any activated National Guard or military performing these actions will be considered unable or unwilling to fulfill duties as assigned and is in violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Article 92, for failure to maintain good order and discipline and willful dereliction of duty. These actions undermine unit cohesion, lowers the high standard of readiness, and reflects poorly upon those who have sworn to support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
