Former Trump campaign adviser and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was charged this morning and will plead guilty to lying to the FBI and, in exchange for not being charged with numerous other crimes, he will testify against the Trumps.
Flynn's plea agreement was made public early this morning, but ABC News first reported that Flynn has agreed to testify against Trump and his family.

He's prepared to testify against President Trump, against members of Trump's family, and others in the White House. He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate, Donald Trump directed him to contact the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.
We're also told that Flynn made the decision to cooperate only in the last 24 hours -- that he is a distraught about the decision but feels he's doing the right thing for his country, that he was facing huge legal bills of more than a million dollars, and that he said that finally he had to go ahead and do this for that reason.
It's all happening. They're all guilty, and it's not just Donald Trump. His entire family is neck deep in it.
Lock them up.
