Trump Regime

Michael Flynn Was a Very Busy Crook

Former Trump adviser Michael Flynn is under investigation and suspected of many things, from acting as an unregistered foreign agent for multiple countries to crafting a plot to kidnap and extradite a Turkish man living in Pennsylvania.

In addition to those activities, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Flynn was also producing a documentary on Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen (the man he wanted to kidnap) with a fellow member of Trump's transition team.

Specifically at question, in addition to Flynn’s contacts with Russia during the 2016 election, is Flynn’s company’s $530,000 contract with a Turkish businessman with ties to the country’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Flynn and business partner Bijan Kian worked for the businessman, Ekim Alptekin, on anti-Gulen material including a documentary while Flynn also worked for Trump’s presidential campaign.

Flynn published an op-ed on Election Day echoing the Turkish president’s position on Gulen. Following the election, Kian joined Flynn on Trump’s national security transition team.

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating all of the above mentioned accusations against Flynn and there's good reason to believe Flynn will be indicted on numerous charges including his work as an unregistered foreign agent. Charges for acting as an unregistered foreign agent are inexplicably rare, but former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was just recently indicted for that among other things.

Flynn led a "lock her up" chant at the GOP convention in 2016 and he was acting as a foreign agent at the time. Actually, from what we know of his various activities, it seems his appearance at the convention and his role in the Trump campaign and regime were second-fiddle to his jobs as an agent for Turkey and Russia. It's hard to imagine how he found time for anything else between his various schemes from the kidnapping plot to his lobbying for a Russian nuclear energy deal in the Middle East.

We shouldn't lose sight of the fact that Trump's top national security adviser was literally a foreign agent.

    The More Patriotic Than Thou™ crowd only have two problems with everything that Flynn did.

    1) He got caught.
    2) He may now turn on the Dear Leader.

    I question their patriotism.

    It’s looking more and more like trump would have to do a mass pardon. And that would have to rise to the level of obstruction of justice.
    There are so many prosecutable, guilty people here, and guilty of betrayal of the country at the highest level, it is ridiculous.
    Lock’um up!

    Add to all of this the speculation that his son is also up to his lower lip in legal hot water and it becomes fairly easy to explain why Michael Flynn’s lawyers are no longer sharing information with Donald Trump’s lawyers. As Bill Schmalfeldt would say, Flynn is making a rat-shaped hole in the water.

    If he does flip on Trump, it will be fun to watch Righty media turn Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, Decorated Hero Of The Homeland and a man who gleefully helped slander Hillary Clinton, into an un-American liberal commie pinko Islamofascist anarchist atheist furriner what hates our freedumbs!
