Best Wishes!

I'm guessing those wishes for good luck are no longer operative, because it wasn't "interesting" in the way Trump expected:
Apologies for the length of that, but on TeeVee this would have taken 30 seconds, because we'd all have seen the lawyer (or the cops) prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the guilt of the defendant.  This is how courts work, and it's not the way Trump imagines they work, either.  Conspiracy theories and "Q-Anon" function best in ignorance, which is to say I sympathize with this last sentiment, even if the hearing were not "dramatic":
And to put a bit of flesh on those bare narrative bones:

“I cannot recall any incident in which the court accepted a guilty plea in which he was not guilty and I don’t intend to start today,” Sullivan told Flynn, according to MSNBC. “I will inform you, any false answers will get you in more trouble, do you understand?”

Flynn responded in the affirmative, before Sullivan asked if he wished “to challenge the circumstances under which you were interviewed by the FBI?”

His lawyers have said in recent days that the only reason Flynn lied to the FBI was because he was caught off-guard by the agents. The White House on Tuesday said he was “certainly ambushed” by the FBI.

“No, your honor,” Flynn said. “I was aware that lying to the FBI was a crime.”
(Alan Dershowitz is gonna plotz!)

Trump fired Flynn for lying to Pence, but now Flynn is not a "rat" and Cohen is? What sense does any of this make, except that Trump is guilty?

  1. It's a shame Dershowitz is as incapable of experiencing shame as Trump is. He might grow from the experience, instead he'll just either double down or look for some other implausible bunch of garbage to fling on FOX or wherever else hasn't dropped him as the Kellyanne Conway of Harvard Law.
