Lock him up!
The day has finally come for Mueller and his team to come knocking at Michael Flynn’s door.
Robert Mueller has charged former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn with “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding conversations with Russia’s ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
You can get the full legal scoop at the New York Times and ABC News reports that Flynn promised full cooperation to the Mueller team and is prepared to testify that candidate Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.”
Michael Flynn has become Sammy “The Bull” Gravano to Donald Trump’s “Teflon Don” in the Trump-Russia investigation. Robert Mueller is going after Michael Flynn not to nail Paul Manafort or Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. Mueller is going after Flynn to nail Trump. Simple as that. The Trump team has gone from MAGA to RICO. This is the just tip of the iceberg. More dirt will come out. It will get ugly. There will be Tweets and lies coming from Trump and his cronies at the White House along with the right-wing media sycophants. Mike Pence might even go down. That might be one of the biggest surprises from this investigation. All eyes have been on Trump because he’s a blowhard that loves the attention and public spats but it wouldn’t surprise me if Vice President Pence had gotten his hands dirty with the Russians too. He’s been on the hush-hush and has hired some pricey lawyers recently. Pence is not a choir boy. He’s a seasoned political opportunist, and he knows a thing or two about how Russia’s cyber help in the 2016 election went down.
Flynn could also drag down Jared Kushner and Donald Trump Junior while he sings like a canary to Mueller’s team. They’re new allegations that Kushner ordered Flynn to speak to the Russians. Kushner is dirty and desperate with his own family’s legal and financial mess. His loyalty and inherited fortune is to the Kushner family and not the Trump family. It’s a lesson that President Trump will soon learn. Jared will squeal once Mueller shines the light on him and his family’s activities. His family has always been dirty, and they’re back in the mud again as we have seen from their previous outing in China earlier this year, so they’re more vulnerable to legal troubles. They’ll cut a deal. These New York real estate family dynasties are real motherfuckers.
The biggest laugh from today’s news is that Trump’s team is now saying that Flynn was an Obama appointee and was nothing more than that. Not their guy. It didn’t take long for them to disavow of Flynn. How quick are they to forget all of the campaign rallies and Trump Tower pow wows with the Ruskies?
How about this classic gem at the RNC in Cleveland? Quite memorable if you ask me:
So what’s next? Now we have Flynn and Mannafort under Mueller’s thumb. Mind you, Mr. Mueller has kept this high profile case close to the vest so we don’t exactly know who’s next to fall and flip. There’s plenty of small yet poisonous fish to fry that we’ve all overlooked but today was a big catch. Flynn had a close personal relationship with Trump before becoming his National Security Advisor palling around on his private jet and of course all of the palace intrigue held at Trump Tower.
The Trump-Russia probe reads like a Tom Clancey novel because of Russia’s interference in our elections but will play out more like a b-level mob movie. Trump’s real estate empire is financed with dirty money from abroad, and all of his cronies have their hands sticking out to whoever will dump their money on Trump’s gaudy condos. Mueller’s team is sniffing around all of these properties for dirty money and flipping more people over to rat on Trump. We’re all familiar with George Papadopoulos name these days, but he’s not the only rat in Trump Tower. More rats will emerge. George Papadopoulos is Pookie to Donald Trump’s Nino Brown, and there was a whole lot of crackheads hanging around Trump Tower in 2016. The Pookies will talk and wear wires to help Mueller piece together how it all went down. Loyalty will only get you so far when legal bills pile up, and the promise of a Presidential pardon seems to get slip further away from being a reality. Flynn learned that lesson and today was a major turning point in this investigation. Soon enough they’ll all learn from it.
The best part of today’s news takes back a year ago when Obama warned Trump not to bring on Flynn to his administration because he was dirty and Trump did it to spite him, and now this has come to bite him on his orange ass.
