In a startling confession made on Twitter.
I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

Now correct me if I’m wrong –
According to my calculations:
Feb. 13: Trump fires Flynn for lying to the FBI and or Mike Pence.
Feb. 14: Trump asks FBI Director James Comey to.. ” let the investigation go “.
May 9: James Comey is fired.
May 11: Donald Trump on an NBC interview says he considered ” this Russia thing ” before firing Comey!
Dec 2: Donald Trump Tweets – I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI.
The tweet set off a Tweet Storm with a many of responses…

I thought the White House didn’t know that Flynn had lied to the FBI when they fired him. Isn’t that what McGahn was so *angry* about yesterday? https://t.co/O3GDkETQ6n

I’m no lawyer, but a friend of mine who’s an excellent attorney says that @realDonaldTrump just admitted to obstruction of justice – and with millions of Americans as witnesses.
