FLYNN FALLS; EVEN BIGGER TIMBER IN TROUBLE

If you think Mike Flynn has problems, they’re nothing compared to those even higher on the Trump food chain — Pence, Kushner, and Trump himself. Newly posted at Billmoyers.com

A Timeline: Michael Flynn, Russia, and the Trump Administration

A look at everything we know about Retired General Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia. For a short time, Flynn served as the Trump administration’s national security advisor. Following a guilty plea for lying to the FBI, he’s now likely cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller.

The Trump-Russia investigation has reached a historic and defining moment. Former national security advisor Michael Flynn was an early and enthusiastic Trump supporter who remained a constant presence in Trump’s inner circle from the summer of 2015 to his resignation on Feb. 13, 2017.

Flynn also generated controversy and, based on previously published reports, faced potential legal exposure far beyond the crime of making false statements, to which he has now pled guilty. Almost certainly, that means he has cut a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. In return for admitting that he made false statements to the FBI about his discussions with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and avoiding potential liability for other criminal wrongdoing, Flynn will likely provide evidence that incriminates others in Trump’s orbit. Who are the targets? The list is long, but top candidates include Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump.

For Trump’s presidency, it’s possible that the Russia story may have moved from what Winston Churchill called “the end of the beginning” to the beginning of the end.
