You should know the saying “every time you point a finger at someone, there will always be three pointing back at you.” Your tweet over the weekend that you were forced to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI was an accusation that speaks volumes. First, this statement differs from your original statement saying it was a trust issue. Second, you have been saying all along that you had no knowledge of any Russian contacts with your team; by now saying you fired Flynn because he lied to the FBI, you are admitting that you’ve known this information at least since his firing last February. Third, admitting that you knew Flynn had lied to the FBI and asking Comey to let Flynn go is a clear case of obstruction of justice.
You frequently emphasize that you are the only one who tells the truth – not the media, not the Democrats, not Comey, just you. America is listening to your truth now. All the finger pointing you are doing is only bringing you back to the center of focus.
Saying disparaging things about the FBI will not help your cause. Dragging Hillary Clinton into this will not make your tweet disappear. You believe saying her name will act as a distraction and take the heat off of you, but that is not going to happen. There are too many Americans who want the truth on you to come out. That is what Mueller’s investigation is about – a quest for the truth. And you can’t handle the truth.
