Thursday evening breaking news: Michael Flynn sang like a canary
In just the past hour, special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors unsealed evidence in Michael Flynn’s case. The filings are explosive.
The evidence details how Trump officials and members of Congress continually reached out to Flynn in order to stymie the Mueller investigation. And, Lordy, there are tapes, at least one between one of Trump’s minions and Flynn’s lawyer, trying to get him to give the White House a head’s up as to any testimony he would give to Mueller.
It seems that Mueller’s team has had enough, and is legally exposing evidence of both obstruction and collusion. Because, yes, there’s also evidence of collusion, as Trump’s lickspittles reached out to Wikileaks, which the CIA under none other than Mike Pompeo named as nothing more than a front for Russian intelligence.
Furthermore, the judge in charge of Flynn’s case has ordered prosecutors to file transcripts of Flynn’s conversations with Russian officials by May 31. And those will be unredacted.
This act by Mueller’s team points to what is now an almost certain probability: Mueller’s testimony before the House will be on fire. This is not a shot across the bow; it’s an Exocet missile aimed directly at the Trumptanic.
Is Michael Flynn a repentant patriot? Or did he finally realize that he didn’t want to throw away all that he’d worked for in service to an orange buffoon? Time will tell. But things just got exponentially worse for Donald Trump.
