My prediction about Flynn

I have held my own council since joining DU some months ago and, generally, agree with the views of the forum. Some more than others.

I do want to make a prediction about the Flynn situation with regard to his involvement with the Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

First of all, based on what I have seen, read and heard, there is no question that he had a LOT of contact with the Russians. More over, I believe he ABSOLUTELY knows about the level and degree of the Trump Campaign, Transition and on-going Administration regarding the contacts by others as well.

Because of the damage that he could do to Trump et al, the administration will do ANYTHING to keep him from being investigated to any depth beyond superficial. Additionally, if the Senate or House committees were to find something and were to bring charges they would, at the appropriate time, claim presidential privilege and/or pull out a Presidential Pardon to get him off as part of the deal for his silence. And I really have my doubts about the Republicans in the Senate and House allowing ANYTHING serious to happen investigation wise.

If the FBI were to recommend bringing charges the Sessions DOJ will squash them. They would NEVER allow those charges to move forward due to the damage the trial would cause. Sessions and Co would merely 'circle the wagons'.

This administration is so corrupt and self serving that these would not be seen as obstruction but as quid pro quo. And the R's base would support it!!!!!

As Dan Savage would say, ITMFA!!! (Google it if you haven't heard about this one.)

I have had my rant for the day. Thanks for the platform.

1. The more public Flynn's crimes, however, the more difficult it will be -politically- to 'save' him.

2. Yes, that is why it is critical to get DOJ off the situation

This is broad and this is deep. Any blockades to the truth need to be sidelined as much as possible.

Independent Commission and Prosecutor time.

6. Why did Trump choose Flynn to begin with??

How did he know him?

Did he know of his Russian connection? Was he similar to Tillererson? He had never met him until he decided to make him Secretary of State? But he did have a connection to Russia. And that seemed important to Trump at the time, for whatever reason?

And, although Flynn stayed in his position for 24 days, Trump was told many days before by Sally Yates about Flynn's connection with the Russians. Yet, Trump did nothing?

So, how were these people vetted? Was a simple handshake and "welcome to the Trump team"?

And, what does it say about the rest of the people in the White House? Were any of them vetted? Was Sean Spicer vetted? Was Wilbur Ross vetted? Was Steve Mnuchin vetted? Was anyone vetted?

8. There is a form for application for security clearance.

He would have had to fill out one of those, I would think?

Was it with the Department of Defense? There would be a copy. Perhaps Cummings' Committee should subpoena the DoD for those records? Keep the ball rolling?
