Michael Flynn pleads guilty to FBI, Kushner burns.
« on: December 02, 2017, 01:55:57 pm »
To observe the general explosion of tweets on Friday was to believe that Donald Trump’s time in office was hurtling toward an inevitable end. That morning, Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor investigating the extent of the president’s ties to the Russian government, announced that Mike Flynn,Trump’s former national security adviser, had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Upon observing that, though Mueller was purportedly in possession of enough evidence to charge Flynn and his son, Mike Flynn Jr., with a whole host of crimes, he stopped at a single charge and let Flynn Jr. off scot-free, many surmised that Flynn had cut a plea deal with the special prosecutor. “He is obviously cooperating . . . If he wasn’t cooperating he would be indicted and I guarantee you there would be more counts than this,” Sol Wisenberg, a criminal defense lawyer on the Whitewater investigation, told my colleague Abby Tracy, an assumption seemingly confirmed by an ABC News report that Flynn stood ready to testify against Trump, members of Trump’s family, and others in the White House.

Denizens of the populist-nationalist world where Flynn was first hailed as a hero also believed the end was near—the end of the Russia distraction, that is. Several prominent sources I spoke to expressed little, if any, concern that Flynn’s indictment would upset their agenda, brushing off Mueller’s probe as a witch hunt that had unearthed zero evidence of underlying crimes. The argument, as populist operative Jack Posobiec put it to me, was that of course Flynn was in contact with Russian ambassadors—that is, after all, what ambassadors are for. “The left is acting like Trump is going to have to leave office because Michael Flynn got a parking ticket,” he said, calling Flynn’s indictment a “process crime” and a technicality. “Talking to diplomats is legal. The much bigger question is how the F.B.I. obtained a transcript of his phone conversation without a warrant.”
