News broke last week that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s legal representatives ceased communication with the White House legal team, leading many to believe that Flynn is going to testify against a high level Trump cabinet member, or even the president himself.
Now we’ve learned that, on top of the fact that Flynn seems to finally be cooperating with prosecutors, the meetings held by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Monday likely mean the former National Security Adviser is giving up information the Trump administration doesn’t want him to.
At this point, it wouldn’t be surprising if Michael Flynn was negotiating a deal with Mueller. On top of Flynn’s personal legal issues, Mueller’s investigations are also focusing on Flynn’s son and the degree to which he was involved with the senior Flynn’s consulting business. This means that Michael Flynn is much more likely to cooperate with the investigation and provide any information he may have about Donald Trump, Trump campaign members, and Trump administration members, if only to save his son.
There is no way to know if the information being provided to the investigation will incriminate White House officials. The reasons all arrows point toward Flynn flipping on the Trump administration are simple: In March Flynn said that he would be willing to testify in front of Congress, sharing all the information he has about the Trump administration, in return for immunity. There is only one reason why he would want immunity. Michael Flynn has important information, and it’s likely information Donald Trump doesn’t want anyone to have.
Twitter user, Ale, shared a detailed breakdown of what exactly this will mean to the Trump administration through tweets, that you can read in the screen captures below:
Naturally, the internet response was both comical and accusatory. For a president that claims he’s the most successful and “favorite,” the American people, both those who saw him for what he was long before his presidential bid and the masses that he flat out lied to for votes, Donald Trump is not making any new fans. You can see of the top Twitter responses to the story in below:
Below is a breakdown of Flynn’s actions from MSNBC:
Since entering the Oval Office in January, Donald Trump’s dream team is rapidly shrinking. Every person in the photo below, excluding the president and vice president, has been fired. How ironic that one of Trump’s own men will likely be the one to topple his ridiculous presidency.
