NBC: Mueller Has Enough to Indict the Flynns

Federal investigators have 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. Michael T. Flynn, who was fired after just 24 days on the job, was one of the first Trump associates to come under scrutiny in the federal probe now led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign. Mueller is applying renewed pressure on Flynn following his indictment of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, three sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News.

Won't be surprised to see Flynn cut a deal to protect his son.

Lock him up. Lock him up.

How long are these people going to keep protecting Trump?

As long as they think he can pardon them.

The Flynns are 1st.

donnie dealmakers family is next.

I'll bet it's Kushner for money laundering.

That's where the real collusion took place."

I'm loving this.

Gang, it's the 17 best prosecutors in the country --- which pretty much makes them the best in the wide world --- against some idiots who thried their damnedest colluded with a hostile foreign government using their god damned facebook messenger.

The best is the morons here who post here and think they are going to somehow stop the whole thing by saying "Look over there, it's Elvis!" and then running the other way.

Each knowsTrump has no loyalty to give for loyalty. Best option is to cut deals now, with someone's word which is not toilet paper.

Will Flynn fall on the grenade to protect junior or will he throw him under the bus?

I predict Flynn and Manafort ride on the bus with Mueller to Hillary's trial with the grenade.

And I predict that if Trump, Uday and Qusay, Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn, and Steve Bannon lined up shoulder to shoulder and dropped trou you would be on your knees puffing their horns like a circus seal.

Nullifidian would be in the corner quietly rubbing one out and waiting his turn.

#11 - I imagine that is the only reason why they both have not already been indicted. Sr is likely facing some very serious charges. If he can protect himself from spending the rest of his life in prison while keeping his son, who is a a new father, out of prison then he has strong incentive to cut a deal.

#13 Yeah, flagged abusive for the sexual stuff. MrSilenceDogood, I have met only one other person in my life with anger management issues like yours. We where friends for decades, even though he was sort of dangerous to be around. I'd seen him assault one other person, and he would commonly break things (like bend the steering wheel of his car like a taco) just due to minor incidents (like his car not starting). Then one day, he threatened my life because he thought I might make a play for a girl he had his eye on, just out of pure paranoia. That ended our friendship on the spot.

You remind me exactly of "that guy". Don't be "that guy". Take some anger management classes or something.

#17 Look, I'm not getting into a flame war with you. The last time I tried to talk to you, you called me a "rapist-coddler" for thirty posts (and I still don't know why), and then you got banned. So, for your own sake, let it go.

Besides, the only person I like to flame war with is snoofy. He's sort of like... a combination of group therapy and a Rubik's Cube. And he's inexhaustible: the snoofy never ends! And you can't break him, his memeplex is perfectly indestructible! It's awesome!

MrSilenceDogood, I do get into deep, meaningful discussions with people on many web sites. This actually isn't my favorite left-wing website, for instance, because the Boss Monster occasionally cans my stories. But only this place has snoofy, and handful of other characters that I have come to know and love over the years. The DR is sort of like that old TV show "Friends", except you get to be in it.

You aren't actually illuminating, or even entertaining, in any way. You actually come across the internet as an actual stupid, angry jerk. Now I ask you, what has being a stupid angry jerk ever accomplished in the history of the world, one way or another?

So I mean, what is the point of talking to you?

You seriously need to re-evaluate your life, dude.

#23 Perhaps thankfully, it doesn't appear that stupid people are caused any pain by their affliction, or our society would probably try to treat them with opioids.

Because that's pretty much the point we are at now.

"Won't be surprised to see Flynn cut a deal to protect his son. '

Flynn knows enough incriminating information about the Trump campaign that he can bargain a deal for both himself AND his son providing they're both willing to sell their soul to Mueller.

It's amazing how sloppy these weasels turned out to be, isn't it?

#27 | Posted by Twinpac at 2017-11-07 12:31 AM

27- Surprising? Not really. Trump was a conman and criminal long before he team for office. He may not have been a mafia member but he did business with them and learned their ways. If anything has surprised me about all of it, it is how they have failed to recognize that these are not crimes you can buy your way out of. If they had recognized that then I imagine that wouldn't have been so careless in the coverup.

They've done what they've wanted for all of their lives. No sense of realism, just an experience of easy rewards. Bush II was afflicted by it, so was Romney. Trump and his den are the worst. Too much money. It did none of them and none of us any good.

They were sloppy. Born of arrogance or ignorance, they were sloppy. All of them!
