Lieutenant General Mike Flynn Owes 5 Million in Legal Fees so reports NY Magazine.
From the article,
According to a report from ABC News, Flynn now owes his lawyers some $5 million in fees. A source close to Flynn told ABC that the former Trump surrogate hired blue-label D.C. lawyers Stephen Anthony and Robert Kelner to represent him, a decision that would put a dent in any budget after a year and a half of counsel. As Vanity Fair reported toward the beginning of the Mueller investigation, the calibre of legal representation needed to stand tall against the special counsel and other inquiries could make any wallet seem anemic:
Further down the article goes on to say that Flynn isn’t the only one being put through the financial wringer.
Let’s do some comparison here. Lieutenant General Mike Flynn, a highly dedicated and decorated military officer, has essentially been rendered bankrupt and homeless because of a politically motivated prosecution which netted nothing but a process crime.
On the other side, as reported here by my fellow Red Stater, Bonchie, we have a black, homosexual, Hollywood actor, Jussie Smollett who has provably committed several actual felonies in order to fake a hate crime. Mr Smollett, obviously because he checks the right diversity blocks, walks a way with a forfeiture of $10,000.00 and all charges dropped. White Privilege? Yeah. Right.
