Looks Like Flynn's Making Deal with Mueller

A lawyer for former national security adviser Michael Flynn informed an attorney for President Trump this week that he can no longer discuss the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, a sign that Flynn may be preparing to cooperate in the probe, people familiar with the investigation said. The call from Flynn lawyer Robert Kelner to Trump attorney John Dowd came Wednesday evening and is a potentially ominous sign for Trump and his close associates. Before this week, Kelner had been communicating with lawyers for Trump. The split suggests that Flynn, who has been a top target of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team, may be looking to share information with the prosecutor and his team.

Bad news for the Donald.

This is a big deal...let's see if Mueller gets what he needs.

I'd guess Mueller already knows what he is getting.

Flynn MUST be singing about Donald and his family as we speak.

I feel sorry for Mueller... the opposition is going to vilify him once his report is released.

Donald's lawyers likely have no clue what Mueller will turn up because Trump has been lying to them about what's there all along.

As the news of Flynn's likely cooperation with Mueller is still fresh, Donald tweeted today, "Will be speaking to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey this morning about bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East. I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place!"

Anyone else think Trump isn't talking solely about the ME, he's talking about Flynn and his relationships with Turkey. Again, as in many cases Trump hides the truth in plain sight for those wise enough to see it.

Flynn was an early imbiber in the trump Kool-Aid, bringing to the campaign an axe to grind against Obama. That petulant attitude played well with The Dotard, making it likely that Flynn was privy to a great deal of details about Trump's Russian connections. I'll wager his conversations with Mueller have less to do with his own future and more to do with that of his limp wristed son, who is on his way to a marriage of convenience at some hellhole prison. The General doesn't want a son-in-law...

Donald is done, again? Hopefully? Please let this be it? Can Hillary be sworn in all ready? Oh please God. Wait I didn't mean to say God.

Donald is done, again?

What makes you think The Donald has done anything wrong?

Did you have something you wished to share with the group?

This is a thread about Michael Flynn and what he might be sharing with Mueller.

Think he might have a juicy Nothingburger or two to share?

I think Flynn's lawyers and the Mueller team have reached an "agreement" concerning Flynn's son.

Fishypaws still not getting it. Oh well, you can't fix stupid!

Flynn has been in the hot seat for being an unregistered foreign agent from day one.
