“Wait!” Josh exclaimed. “Are you serious?”
“Unfortunately, I am,” Lauren said. “The Justice Department is dropping the charges against Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts during the presidential transition. It’s a stunning reversal by the DOJ in its case against Flynn, even though he was convicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller had put together a detailed outline of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Flynn’s role in it.”
Josh shook his head and sighed. “It’s all politics, these days,” he said. “Trump, thanks to Barr, McConnell, and all of the Republican ass-lickers in Congress, is getting away with anything and everything.”
“What else is new?” Lauren asked. “Democracy in America died in November 2016 and Trump is now acting like he’s the king.”
