    One question: Was this Turkish cleric kidnapped and taken out of the US?

    No, it's as has been said, basically a "Burn After Reading" plot. These guys had no idea what they were doing and no idea how to go about it. However, had Flynn not outed himself RE: Kislyak, it is still extremely problematic that he and his son were engaged in this nonsense while Flynn, and I would imagine his son also even though his security clearance was denied, was privy to the nation's most closely guarded secrets.

    It gets more impactful because we know that during his first White House meeting with Obama, the former president told the president that he had no desire to tell him what to do RE: his own people, and didn't expect he would be listened to in any event. However, he had one request in that regard, and that was to get rid of Gen. Flynn.

    I'd rather see a kidnap conspiracy charge.

    I just explained it to you: Flynn was being paid to engage in an international relation of (if we are being charitable) highly questionable legality up to the point he was made national security adviser (during which time he was being read in to the most closely guarded U.S. intelligence) and perhaps afterward.

    At the very, very least, Flynn was being paid by Turkey to act as their lobbyist and U.S. confidant and failed to disclose it, which is illegal. Obama knew all about it, and on that basis, among others, asked Trump to remove Flynn from the transition team and not hire him in any capacity in the administration. Because he is an obstinate ass who clearly listened to his predecessor for about 30 seconds, if that, Trump ignored his advice and allowed a foreign agent to take one of the administration's most important jobs.

    Again, that's all true even if the kidnapping plot never happened.

    If Obama knew about all those crimes why didn't he have Flynn arrested?

    Obama knew about all this and Lynch didn't? Why did Obama keep Lynch in the dark about the crimes of national security?

    The attorney general doesn't order for people to be arrested either.
