Mueller Seeks Flynn’s Testimony in His Never-Ending Investigation
At what point do you tell a Special Counsel and his Investigate Staff who have found no evidence of “Collusion with Russia” to pack up their stuff and go home?
According to The New York Times,
Lawyers for Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, notified the president’s legal team in recent days that they could no longer discuss the special counsel’s investigation, according to four people involved in the case, an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating such a deal. Mr. Flynn’s lawyers had been sharing information with Mr. Trump’s lawyers about the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining whether anyone around Mr. Trump was involved in Russian efforts to undermine Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
That agreement has been terminated, the four people said. Defense lawyers frequently share information during investigations, but they must stop when doing so would pose a conflict of interest. It is unethical for lawyers to work together when one client is cooperating with prosecutors and another is still under investigation.
The notification alone does not prove that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with Mr. Mueller. Some lawyers withdraw from information-sharing arrangements as soon as they begin negotiating with prosecutors. And such negotiations sometimes fall apart.
Still, the notification led Mr. Trump’s lawyers to believe that Mr. Flynn — who, along with his son, is seen as having significant criminal exposure — has, at the least, begun discussions with Mr. Mueller about cooperating.
Lawyers for Mr. Flynn and Mr. Trump declined to comment. The four people briefed on the matter spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
A deal with Mr. Flynn would give Mr. Mueller a behind-the-scenes look at the Trump campaign and the early tumultuous weeks of the administration. Mr. Flynn was an early and important adviser to Mr. Trump, an architect of Mr. Trump’s populist “America first” platform and an advocate of closer ties with Russia.
His ties to Russia predated the campaign — he sat with President Vladimir V. Putin at a 2015 event in Moscow — and he was a point person on the transition team for dealing with Russia.
Among the interactions that Mr. Mueller is investigating is a private meeting that Mr. Flynn had with the Russian ambassador and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, during the presidential transition. In the past year, it has been revealed that the Trump campaign repeatedly tried to meet with Russian officials who were promising compromising information on Mrs. Clinton.
Mr. Flynn is regarded as loyal to Mr. Trump, but he has in recent weeks expressed serious concerns to friends that prosecutors will bring charges against his son, Michael Flynn Jr., who served as his father’s chief of staff and was a part of several financial deals involving the elder Mr. Flynn that Mr. Mueller is scrutinizing.
The White House has said that neither Mr. Flynn nor other former aides has incriminating information to provide about Mr. Trump. “He likes General Flynn personally, but understands that they have their own path with the special counsel,” a White House lawyer, Ty Cobb, said in an interview last month with The New York Times. “I think he would be sad for them, as a friend and a former colleague, if the process results in punishment or indictments. But to the extent that that happens, that’s beyond his control.”
Mr. Mueller and his staff are getting desperate.
As I sit down to write this post after a very long second day of a new assignment given to me by the company I work for, images are playing through my head after reading this article.
I am remembering the night of November 8, 2016…the scene of astonishment, disbelief, and unstoppable grief among Hillary Supporters…from those who had gathered to hear her presumed Victory Speech who were sent on their way by John Podesta to the panel of anchors and “Poltiical Pundits” on MSNBC who were so dejected that they resembled an extended version of the painting of the solemn farmer and his wife by Grant Wood, titled “American Gothic”.
The unstoppable grief of Modern American Liberals over the victory of Donald J. Trump has led them to carry on a National Temper Tantrum highlighted by Fake News Stories, unsubstantiated rumors, and Machiavellian plans and schemes being carried out in the halls of our Nation’s Capitol.
Which brings me to the next images running through my head…scenes from the classic movie starring Jimmy Stewart, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”.
Naive and idealistic Jefferson Smith, leader of the Boy Rangers, is appointed on a lark by the spineless governor of his state. He is reunited with the state’s senior senator–presidential hopeful and childhood hero, Senator Joseph Paine. In Washington, however, Smith discovers many of the shortcomings of the political process as his earnest goal of a national boys’ camp leads to a conflict with the state political boss, Jim Taylor. Taylor first tries to corrupt Smith and then later attempts to destroy Smith through a scandal.
I have been chronicling since President Trump’s Campaign started as to how he threatened to upset the Washingtonian Status Quo and how the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans as well, viewed him as an “outsider” unfit to hold the highest office in the land.
Follow me, boys and girls…
Mueller’s 16 lawyers who are investigating for corruption are Democrats who donate to the DNC.
Therefore, they are hardly “objective”.
As I have written before, the frenzy which those who are still grieving Hillary’s loss have built themselves into as a group resembles the mentality of an old West Lynch Mob.
And that mob stretches from UC Berkeley to Capitol Hill.
They want a hanging, and by gum, there WILL be a “hanging”, even is it has to be Donald Trump, Jr., in order to teach the President a “lesson” as to who is REALLY in charge of this country.
It is past time for President Trump to pull the plug on the Special Counsel’s Investigation.
Being the minority Political Ideology in America has never stopped Modern American Liberals from trying to enforce their will upon the American people.
You see, boys and girls, from the moment that it was announced that the “Interloper” Donald J. Trump, has “stolen” he election from “the Chosen One”, Hillary Clinton, America’s Liberals determined that they had to go into an all-out offensive to run Trump out of office, saving their entitlement programs and continuing the mission which Obama and his Administration started: that of turning the “Shining City Upon the Hill” into just another country.
The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and West Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.
To put it in Marital Terms, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.
The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, boys and girls?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.
While the French long ago used “Madame Guillotine” to make a drastic change in their government, Americans used voting booths.
Now, it’s time to come together as a nation, not to purposefully further the division between us.
America has no need for a “Shadow Government”, run by Former President Barack Hussein Obama. We do not need a Former Nazi Sympathizer and Stool Pigeon financing protests and parades designed to undermine the president and to undo the votes which average Americans cast on November 8th.
That kind of garbage is designed to further divide us as a nation.
It is the same strategy which Vladimir Lenin used to engineer the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917 which replaced the Russian Monarchy with Marxism, which only succeeded in making the new Ruling Class, the Politburo, richer, and the working class, the Proletariat, poorer.
Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate representing the Socialist Party of America. In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.
Could Mr. Thomas have been right?
I pray that he greatly underestimated the American People.
Until He Comes,
