Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The least-noticed sentence in Michael Flynn's plea agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller may also be the most important one. Section eight of the deal reached by Donald Trump's former national security adviser in the inquiry into Russian meddling in the US election is entitled "cooperation." It specifies that as well as answering questions and submitting to government-administered polygraph tests, Flynn's cooperation "may include ... participating in covert law enforcement activities." Long-time students of federal law enforcement practices agreed, speaking anonymously, that "covert law enforcement activities" likely refers to the possibility of wearing a concealed wire or recording telephone conversations with other potential suspects.

"If the other subjects of investigation have had any conversations with Flynn during the last few months, that phrase must have all of them shaking in their boots," said John Flannery, a former federal prosecutor in the southern district of New York.

"The one who must be particularly terrified is [Trump son-in-law and adviser] Jared Kushner, if he spoke to the special counsel's office without immunity about the very matter that is the subject of Flynn's plea. I think he must be paralyzed if he talked to Flynn before or after the investigators debriefed him."

If Jared is feeling raw, naked fear then it's for the first time in his useless, pampered life. Must hurt like a mother.

Would Mr Flynn be allowed to wear a wire while he was conversing with Pres Trump's lawyers?

Now that everyone knows that Flynn has flipped who would even feel comfortable talking about the case with him?

To answer LAMPLIGHTER, Trump's lawyers are too smart to get caught in that kind of trap.

You're right. I should have qualified my post by adding 'who, other than Trump,'

Although Trump appears pretty upset with Flynn right now ~ for turning on him. For Trump it's all about that one way ~~> street called Loyalty Avenue.

What about before they knew he had flipped?

"To answer LAMPLIGHTER, Trump's lawyers are too smart to get caught in that kind of trap."

Lol. Trump's lawyers are buffoons. They are not smart enough to find their way out of a paper bag.
