It’s all ugly and ragged, but this White House has a lot of ugly and ragged.Even if Flynn says he was instructed by the president to be in touch with the Russians, so what? All that would mean is the president-elect told his national security adviser to do his job.Don’t be fooled by the breathless, desperate reaction from the usual suspects.As far as the White House is concerned, the Flynn guilty plea is a 4 on a scale from 1 to 10.Sorry, Democrats. The investigations and “collusion” outrage are running out of steam, well short of reaching the president’s doorstep.Ed Rogers is a contributor to the Washington Post’s PostPartisan blog, a political consultant and a veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush White Houses.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes He has been a cooperating witness since special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation began.The Democrats won’t admit it, but they are throwing in the towel on collusion.Their only choice now is to prop up the convoluted claim of obstruction of justice, and that could go on forever. The ordeal may be bothersome for the White House, but it won’t be fatal.Oh and by the way, let’s reflect on what has happened in this investigation so far.Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were indicted on matters associated with foreign-agent registration and money laundering that predated any engagement they had with Trump.Flynn has pleaded guilty to a crime that occurred after the campaign was over.To be precise, none of this involves the president or his campaign. Commentators are saying Flynn’s plea couldn’t come at a worse time for the president.As Republicans are on the brink of passing this administration’s most important legislative initiative with the GOP-led tax reform bill, some in the media have gone so far as to suggest Flynn’s admission of guilt may disrupt the tax bill’s vote count in Congress.Well, a note to the political geniuses in the liberal mainstream media: There isn’t one Republican member of Congress thinking, “Gee, Flynn pleaded guilty to something or another. Maybe I won’t vote for a tax cut.”It just doesn’t work that way.Once the dust settles, the Democrats and their media allies will realize that there is nothing more to this story than what Flynn has admitted to.Commentators are saying Flynn has agreed to cooperate, as if that is something new.The fact is, there was never a time when Flynn wasn’t cooperating. Categories: Editorial, OpinionFriday morning’s guilty plea from former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn is a major disappointment for Democrats.Flynn admitting to having made false statements is nowhere near where the Democrats want this to go.Of course, the story is big and the fact that a former White House official has been charged with anything and pleaded guilty is consequential, but it doesn’t suggest any collusion occurred and it doesn’t even get close to confirming that Donald Trump or his campaign was somehow complicit in a nefarious scheme.Democrats are already straining themselves trying to suggest that Flynn’s plea is just the beginning and that there is more to come.But as far as Flynn is concerned, that is unlikely. It is just wishful thinking on their part.It’s not as though he pleaded guilty only to leave unresolved matters for later.

Martin Jol always knew Gareth Bale was a star in the making but on Sunday the Fulham boss has to find a way of stopping Tottenham’s Welsh wizard. Press Association He added: “With hindsight it’s very satisfying, he’s probably the best player in the Premier League at the moment and he shows it week in, week out. I played him in his first match against Manchester United and he had better stats than any other player, and he was 17. “Hopefully for the league and for Spurs he will stay because I think it’s a very good club for him. He’s getting stronger and stronger and playing in the hole he is probably even better. I wanted to get him on loan in Germany and other clubs were trying to get him but they did well to keep him, during that spell where he played 24 games without being on the winning side. “But they knew and I knew he was an exciting player. If you see Spurs over the last couple of years they are getting better and better so for him to stay, why not? It’s a big club with a big fanbase and he could be a legend there. If he decides to go on to bigger things abroad it can be a risk. It comes off sometimes but not always. “But whatever he decides to do he will have a big future. Hopefully he stays in the league and I can keep enjoying watching him.” Fulham will have not played in over a fortnight when they head to the Lane, while Spurs put in 120 minutes at the San Siro on Thursday night as they squeezed past Inter Milan in the Europa League. But Jol added: “There were a few players who didn’t play and they have a big squad. If they can rest five or six players like they did then there’s no problem. Aaron Lennon has been injured and he came on and had a few minutes, so that’s a positive for them. “For us it’s annoying, we only have two games this month. Spurs have played all these games but it’s probably better to keep your rhythm.” Jol was Spurs manager when he plucked Bale from Southampton in 2007 and gave the then 17-year-old left-back his Barclays Premier League debut. Bale has gone on to become the hottest property in English football, and a return of 11 goals in his last 10 games has seen him linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona. But Jol, who also tried to sign Bale after moving on to Hamburg, wants the free-scoring 23-year-old to stick with Spurs and become a White Hart Lane legend. Jol said: “I saw Bale at Southampton when he was 15, we followed him and other people came in but I had a few words with his mum to convince him to come to Spurs.”
