PROOF OF CONSPIRACY establishes that, with Trump's knowledge, Michael Flynn engaged in an 18-month course of clandestine negotiation with Russia, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Israel that secured for Trump illegal election assistance from these nations. Link: 

1/ The reason Trump witness-tampered with Flynn in April 2017 by calling him and telling him to "stay strong" is because he knew—had known since 2015, which is why he lied about when/how he met Flynn—that Flynn had been illegally negotiating on his behalf.

2/ There is reason to believe that when *seven allied nations* informed U.S. intelligence in 2015 that Trump advisers were illicitly meeting with Russians overseas, Flynn was one of them. And U.S. intelligence was right: Flynn *was* a dirty, venal traitor.

3/ That Flynn may avoid prison—rather than spending his life incarcerated for selling out U.S. foreign policy for Saudi cash—is one of the gravest injustices of the past fifty years of U.S. rule of law. The only thing worse would be Trump escaping justice.
