In a sign that Trump world is in a total panic, Sean Hannity claimed that Robert Mueller disrespected the troops with his sentencing of Mike Flynn.
33 years of service, 5 years in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and this is the treatment? This is the thanks this country gives him? This is how we treat people? What kind of justice system is this? His house, nearly faced bankruptcy, literally and his world crashes before him and his entire family. And I would bet any amount of money that the only reason he signed this deal was well, it’s the same old system. Well, we might have to go after your son worked with you and then we are going to invoke the Logan Act which nobody invokes to go after him.
So he could have made, instead of serving his country in the private sector a lot more money. But now he has to sell his house, literally fall on the sword for his family. And don’t forget, we know that they got through what a lot of this information, through what? We knew he was the victim of illegal surveillance, illegal unmasking. Illegal leaking of raw intelligence. What about the people involved in those crimes? His rights were violated at every level. Now this is a disgrace and this is what we’ve been telling you is a glaring example of a two-tiered justice system in America.
Video via Media Matters:
Robert Mueller is a war hero who has a sterling career of non-partisan public service. Real disrespect for the troops is keeping them away from their families over the holidays for a bogus mission on the border as Trump is doing.
When Republicans start whining about disrespect to the troops, it is a sure sign that they are losing and freaking out. Sean Hannity is Trump‘s propaganda minister, so the character attack on Mueller is expected, but a quick read between the lines reveals that the White House is terrified.
Mueller is closing in. A real patriot is coming to get the man who sold out democracy by conspiring with Russia to win a presidential election.
