A former Attorney General appeared on ABC News this weekend and took some of the wind out of the left’s sails regarding the Michael Flynn plea deal. The left thinks it has an ace in the hole here but Michael Mukasey says there’s no there, there.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey: Michael Flynn plea means ‘not very much else there’
Former Attorney Gen. Michael Mukasey said the guilty plea from former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn signals that perhaps there were no severe crimes committed by the Trump campaign.
In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Mukasey, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, said the plea, which was announced Friday by special investigator Robert Mueller, should tamp down speculations about collusion with Russia.
“What I made of it is a lot of the heavy breathing and a lot of the speculation is completely unwarranted,” he said. “That plea agreement does not, to me, indicate that there’s very much else there.”
Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his communications with Russian officials during the transition period after the election.

Liberals will act like the Flynn deal is the most important thing that has happened in the last year until they find a new thing to obsess about next week.
