: "President Donald J. Trump's Commission on School Safety examined ways to make our schools safe for all students and teachers."
White House spokesman Sarah Sanders in briefing says Trump told Turkey's Erdogan only that "we would take a look" at the possibility of extraditing Gulen but there was "nothing committal at all in that process"
"We would take a look at it," @POTUS told @RT_Erdogan in response to request of Turkey president to extradite cleric who lives in Pennsylvania, says @PressSec.
"Maybe he did those things" but they "had nothing to do with the president directly," says @PressSec of @GenFlynn, replying to questions from @fran_chambers.
Activities @GenFlynn engaged in "don't have anything to do with the president," says @PressSec, but "there's certainly concern."
@FBI "ambushed General Flynn," asserts @PressSec, "those are facts."
Sentencing "delay is something between General Flynn and the courts" and @WhiteHouse wishes him well, says @PressSec in response to first question at briefing.
Judge Sullivan asking whether Flynn could have been charged with treason. Van Grack doesn't want to answer.
Judge Sullivan to Michael Flynn: "Arguably, you sold your country out."
Prosecutor Van Grack says Flynn provided "substantial assistance" in the case announced yesterday, involving his work as an unregistered agent of the government of Turkey, and could have been charged in connection with that case.
One final time, and still sounding skeptical, Sullivan asks Flynn, "If you want to proceed because you are guilty of this offense." Flynn says he is, and wants to proceed. Sullivan accepts the plea.
Saying he's "puzzled" by the documents he's seen, Sullivan makes it explicitly clear he was concerned by the circumstances of the FBI interview, but Flynn and his attorneys are *repeatedly* declining the judge's offers to delay or steer the proceeding off course.
Defense Attorney Robert Kelner says Flynn "fully accepts responsibility" and "stands by his guilty plea." He says he included for judge information he "might want to see" for sentencing purposes.

: Michael Isikoff was the first to report Dossier allegations and seriously doubts the Dossier claims. The whole Russian Collusion thing was a HOAX, but who is going to restore the good name of so many people whose reputations have been destroyed
: ..WILL NEVER BE PROVEN AND ARE LIKELY FALSE." Thank you to Michael Isikoff, Yahoo, for honesty. What this means is that the FISA WARRANTS and the whole Russian Witch Hunt is a Fraud and a Hoax which should be ended immediately. Also, it was paid for by Crooked Hillary and DNC.

: Illegal immigration costs the United States more than 200 Billion Dollars a year. How was this allowed to happen
: Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Dems it is ridiculous. Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join @realDonaldTrump. They have removed many names and greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING.
: I hope the people over at the Fed will read today's Wall Street Journal Editorial before they make yet another mistake. Also, don't let the market become any more illiquid than it already is. Stop with the 50 B's. Feel the market, don't just go by meaningless numbers. Good luck.
: Good luck today in court to General Michael Flynn. Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. There was no Collusion.
: Biggest outrage yet in the long, winding and highly conflicted Mueller Witch Hunt is the fact that 19,000 demanded Text messages between Peter Strzok and his FBI lover, Lisa Page, were purposely and illegally deleted. Would have explained whole Hoax, which is under protest.
