If you have spent Wednesday asking “what the fuck” is going on in our country when North Korea launches a missile capable of reaching the U.S., our pr*sident responds by tweeting out fake/racist anti-Muslim videos that former KKK leader David Duke hearts, and Republican Congresspeople are salivating to pass a tax assault on any American making less than $75,000 (among others)—a potential answer has emerged.
A CNN report dropped late Wednesday afternoon suggesting that former national security adviser Michael Flynn may have flipped. Ya know—the one who Trump asked James Comey to lay off of.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has postponed an anticipated grand jury testimony linked to his investigation into Michael Flynn amid growing indications of possible plea deal discussions.
Additional witnesses were expected to be questioned soon including a public relations consultant hired by Flynn’s lobbying firm who was given an early December date deadline to appear before the grand jury, according to a person at the company.
Ahead of the delay, the impression was that the testimony needed to happen soon, the source said.
“Time seems to be of the essence,” said the source at Sphere Consulting, the PR firm where the consultant worked.
Time is of the essence. Trump will lead this country into WWIII to save his own heinie if someone doesn’t stop him. And the only adult in Washington willing to and capable of doing that is Robert Mueller.
The CNN news comes on the heels of multiple reports indicating a shift in legal tactics for Flynn—from his lawyers cutting ties with Trump’s lawyers to his attorney meeting with Mueller’s team Monday to new reporting revealing how extensive Flynn’s legal jeopardy really is.
At the very least, there’s some solace in knowing that there’s perhaps plausible (if not probable) explanations for our truly inane world.
