Michael Flynn to Be Sentenced Today

MSNBC's Kyle Griffin reports: "Reminder: Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, is set to be sentenced today for lying to FBI investigators. He will be the first member of the Trump administration to be sentenced."

That's a good observation. George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, and Michael Cohen have been sentenced, but none of them worked for the administration — only the campaign. Flynn is indeed the first member of the administration who will be sentenced as part of Special Counsel Bob Mueller's probe.

I'm seeing a lot of sympathy being expressed for Michael Flynn in the political press today. It's always interesting (cough) to see with whom Beltway journalists place their empathy.

I don't have the slightest bit of compassion for Flynn. He is a traitorous wreck. I'm angry about what he did, and I honestly cannot understand how anyone who considers themselves a patriot isn't angry at him, too.
