The the DOJ will soon try to dismiss this suit. If they fail, Biden will pardon him.

That's how it's done, right?

Isn't this pretty much what they tried to prosecute Flynn for? What are the odds he gets convicted, or even goes to trial? I'm guessing a plea deal, slap on the wrist, and a stern warning: "Don't do that again, you bad boy!"

Maybe republicans consider it to be political payback but it looks like a bull shit technical charge. Maybe the "justice dept" is going to sacrifice this poor bastard to give the false impression that the prosecutions are politically balanced. Anyway, who do we see when the FBI lies to us?
