The former national security adviser is now cooperating with the Mueller investigation.
That takes the trail of Russian collusion to the desk of Trump.
That scampering sound you can hear is just the rats disembarking from the sinking ship.
Michael Flynn – Trump’s first national security adviser – is not just any old rodent.
For so long he was the only faintly known quantity in national security to be desperate or insane enough to get close to Donald Trump.
His guilty plea to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador is no minor development.
As all the other stampeding rats know it is the tip of this perilous iceberg.
How can you tell?
Because suddenly the White House is dismissing Flynn as a bit player in the history of Team Trump.
