    Okay, so now you can stop with the "they threatened to charge his son" nonsense. Right? Which btw, there is no evidence that they did so anyway.

    As the saying goes, that doesn't pass the smell test.
    So, let me get this straight, you're so naive as to believe that Gen Flynn is stupid enough to twice plead guilty in court to something that he knows he never did? Dupe!

    Not stupid, just desperate to protect his son from retaliatory prosecution. It's worth repeating: this is not speculation or guesswork. We know it happened.

    For one thing being forced to tell the truth by such leverage is not illegal, for another, that's an accusation for which I've yet to see any evidence of.

    Flynn may have told the truth, that is pled guilty, in order to protect his son, that doesn't mean that the FBI forced hin to. Besides, what was he protecting his son from?

    Expenses, having someone dig through your sock drawer, branch out to other friends - costing THEM money, embarrassment on non-illegal life events that "slip out" during high profile investigations, etc...
