Michael Flynn’s sentencing delayed after judge tells the ex-Trump adviser he may not avoid prison time


Oh ho ho ho ho, this is delicious!

Here's the kicker of kickers from the (apparently) irritated judge:

Quote
After reviewing some of the allegations against Flynn, including that he worked to advance the interests of the Turkish government in the United States during the 2016 presidential campaign, the judge pointed to an American flag behind him in the courtroom and said heatedly, “Arguably, that undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out.

“The court’s going to consider that,” the judge said. “I cannot assure you, if you proceed today, you will not receive a sentence of incarceration.”

Sullivan also asked a prosecutor with the special counsel’s office whether Flynn could be charged with “treason.”

Flynn, standing straight and flanked by attorneys on either side, looked shaken, his jaw clenched. Sullivan declared a recess to let Flynn consider whether he wanted to proceed and let the judge impose a punishment, or to delay and cooperate more with the special counsel in hopes of leniency.


"cooperate more with the special counsel in hopes of leniency."


Translation: flip on Drumpf or hit the pokey for a long, long stretch. He plead guilty with full knowledge that lying to the FBI is a crime. Full knowledge. He could, given his age, die in prison--no doubt what the judge wants Flynn's lawyers to tell him.

I'm going around in a rosy glow today. It's a beautiful winter's day, with bright sun and warm breezes and the bouganvillea gently perfuming the air so sweetly.
