(ed: the word in the twitterverse is that flynns’ son is also donkey-doo-deep in this – and that flynn will do a deal to roll over on trump – to save his son from decades in prison – (‘fings are getting kinda interesting..eh..?..with this definition of ‘interesting’ being: parlous for trump..
update: there are two sources on twitter that i have been relying on for information on/during this trump/russia saga – and in general they have been running about three months ahead of the mainstream media we all so rely on – and in all of these months they have been wrong about nothing – everything they have said is going to happen – has happened..about three months later..
just now they told me that flynn has for some time been what is known as ‘a co-operating witness’..and what that means is that not only will they give evidence in the prosecution of colleagues/other accused – they will also actively entrap those former co-conspirators for the f.b.i. – doing what has become recently known as ‘doing a papadopoulos’ – namely wearing a wire/recording device to meetings – for the express purpose of entrapment..
so if we accept the above – the next two questions are: how long has flynn been wearing a wire to meetings..?.and who were those meetings with..?…..trump perchance..?..that’d be an ‘oh..!..still my beating heart..!’..eh..?..
and of course – as the related-story at the foot of this post notes) – another interesting facet to this story is how during their 10 minute meeting in the white house @ change-over time – obama warned trump about flynn and urged him not to hire the man – trump chose to ignore that warning – to his own peril..
‘cos make no mistake – if flynn has been wearing wires in meetings with trump – trump is gone-burger – and if he is very lucky he will be offered no prosecution in exchange for his standing-down from the presidency..as his best case scenario..
..or – he could become the first american president to be thrown into prison..
and if you think about it – the case/arguments can be made that jailing trump will be a strengthener for american democracy – setting the template for the removal of any future wannabe demagogues and demonstrating the ultimate check and balance powers of the other pillars in that democracy..doing what they were designed to do..
it’s a win-win for everyone – with the exception of trump…he will become that ‘loser’ he so despises..)
(update:2) i have just read that flynn cried during his talks with/pleas to the f.b.i..this in an attempt to save his son..as both of them are facing indictments for espionage/for spying for a foreign power – which is a capital-crime in america…
anyone now still think flynn won’t/hasn’t rolled-over on trump..?…)
Robert Mueller has enough evidence to bring criminal charges against Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn – it has been reported.
The alleged evidence against Mr Flynn – a retired army general – suggests Mr Mueller’s probe is getting closer to the inner circle around Mr Trump.
If he is charged the former National Security Adviser would be the first person who held an administration post to face prosecution.
White House officials have previously stressed that those charged to date were campaign officials who were not brought into government by Mr Trump.
Mr Flynn’s possibly indictment would change that.
FBI investigators are reported to have arranged interviews with multiple witnesses in the coming days with the aim of gathering further evidence against Mr Flynn.
The inquiries are said to relate to his lobbying work and will investigate whether he laundered money or lied to the FBI about his work.
