Hang on a moment.

You're claiming that Flynn lying to the FBI about what he told the Russian ambassador, in an investigation of the Trump campaign's *contacts with Russia*, is not a material lie?

I reiterate: you've lost your mind.
The definition of "material", @AlanDersh, is "predictably capable of affecting ... [an] official decision."…

Flynn admitted in his guilty plea that he discussed sanctions with Kislyak, on the orders of a senior Trump campaign official.
Had Flynn explained this to the FBI when they interviewed him, that would have definitely affected an official decision, because it would have led the FBI to investigate the senior official who gave him the order.

So it was clearly a "material" lie, @AlanDersh. You're wrong.
