Do You Think Mueller Will Have A Couple Of Flynns Arrested This Week Or Next Week?


Yesterday, NBC broke the news most of all have surmised, namely that Mueller has enough evidence on Flynn to bring charges against him and his crackpot son (the one who was pushing the story about Hillary running a child prostitution business from the basement of a popular DC pizzeria (that has no basement). Their team of reporters asserts flatly that Mueller's team has "gathered enough evidence to bring charges in their investigation of President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his son as part of the probe into Russia's intervention in the 2016 election, according to multiple sources familiar with the investigation... Mueller is applying renewed pressure on Flynn following his indictment of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort." The big point of leverage has to do with Flynn lying to investigators about his money-laundering, serious charges that could land him and his son in prison. Meet The Press was all over Putin-Gate yesterday too. Senators Warner (D-VA) and Lankford (R-OK):

Mueller's team is also examining whether Flynn attempted to orchestrate the removal of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan from the U.S. to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars, two officials said.

...Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, who worked closely with his father, accompanied him during the campaign and briefly worked on the presidential transition, could be indicted separately or at the same time as his father, according to three sources familiar with the investigation.

If the elder Flynn is willing to cooperate with investigators in order to help his son, two of the sources said, it could also change his own fate, potentially limiting any legal consequences.

...Investigators also revealed Monday that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to lying to federal officials and had been cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

If the senior Flynn is charged, he would be the first current or former Trump administration official formally accused of criminal wrongdoing by the Mueller team.

So far, the probe has only ensnared campaign officials, and the White House has argued that the connection to the president is minimal. An indictment of the president's former national security adviser and his son would scramble that dynamic.

...The FBI is also investigating former CIA Director Jim Woolsey's account to the Wall Street Journal-- which he confirmed to MSNBC-- that Flynn and Turkish officials discussed a potential plan to forcibly remove Gulen from the country in September 2016, according to sources close to Woolsey, who say the former director has spoken to FBI agents working for Mueller about the matter.

Flynn was fired in February following public revelations that he had lied to Vice President Pence about his dealings with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

Most hated occupant of the White House ever

All I know is if this is everyone that gets nabbed, this whole thing was a huge waste of time.

One would have expected the flynns to be low-hanging fruit... and the longer it takes them to do the perp-walk, the less likely Mueller is going to be at all helpful.

Maybe that's what he was tasked to do... a couple of show trials and nothing else.

And just what was served when the investigation into the exposure of Valerie Plame Wilson as a CIA agent only delivered Scooter Libby, a sentence which was immediately commuted by Dubya?

Show Trial.

I fear it will be thus with the Trumpster Gang. To do more risks awakening the nation to the corruption which runs the nation. Can't have that! Wouldn't be prudent!
