Why is Michael Flynn above the law?
The memo from prosecutors on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation team, which came with a no-prison sentencing recommendation for Michael Flynn, has lowered my regard for his office's ability to uphold the rule of law. Mueller's recommendation essentially states that Flynn is above the law.
Does Mueller and the news media expect Americans to be impressed with the fact that Flynn met with his team 19 times over the past year?
That somehow we should respect Flynn just because he provided Mueller with information?
Regardless of one's perspective on Mueller's memo, Flynn was appointed by President Donald Trump as his national security adviser, and yet he is accused of engaging in counterintelligence work against the U.S.
Mueller's memo probably means more bad news for Trump. But will he be above the law, too?
