LOL Michael Flynn Is So Fucked
LOCK HIM UP
Were we not just telling you special counsel Robert Mueller is closing in on Michael Flynn and his son "Pizzagate Junior," ready to put them in jail for the rest of their natural lives? Well, there's more news, and it is that Mueller's squeezing even tighter than we knew! Mueller has been looking into Flynn's literal actual FOREIGN AGENT work, making his list and checking it twice to see if Flynn laundered money or lied to the FBI or anything fun like that. We also knew Mueller was investigating Flynn's work to circumvent American law for his Turkish masters, to send a Turkish cleric named Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania, back to Turkey so the dictatorship can murder him.
Well well well! Turns out it's hotter in that particular kitchen than we knew! Let's let the Wall Street Journal tell us the business:
Under the alleged proposal, Mr. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., were to be paid as much as $15 million for delivering Fethullah Gulen to the Turkish government, according to people with knowledge of discussions Mr. Flynn had with Turkish representatives. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has pressed the U.S. to extradite him, views the cleric as a political enemy.
15 MILLION FUCKING DOLLARS. TO KIDNAP A GUY AGAINST THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT'S WISHES.
Is that bad? (It is.)
One person familiar with the alleged discussions about Mr. Gulen said Mr. Flynn also was prepared to use his influence in the White House to further the legal extradition of the cleric, who lives in Pennsylvania.
WHILE WORKING SECRETLY AS A FOREIGN AGENT FOR TURKEY, HAD HE NOT GOTTEN CAUGHT.
When did the meeting happen, where this little plan was hatched? You are probably asking that, because you are curious about things:
The alleged meeting in New York in December, which came after Mr. Flynn was tapped as national security adviser, was a follow-up to an earlier discussion, on Sept. 19, where Turkish officials first raised the possibility of forcibly removing Mr. Gulen. That September meeting, held in a hotel and attended by former CIA Director James Woolsey, was reported earlier by the Journal.
Also remember that Flynn wrote an op-ed in The Hill, published on election day, arguing that the United States should extradite Gulen. Flynn was obviously very excited to git' her done for Turkey, working as a literal actual foreign agent working in the White House of the United States of America.
Hey let's watch the video of Michael Flynn leading the "LOCK HER UP!" chant at the Republican convention:
But wait there's more! Mueller is also looking into a meeting between foreign agent Flynn (who has done work for Russian interests too), his dingbat son, and also GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Moscow). Rohrabacher has been gallivanting around, visiting his bosses in Mother Russia to get marching orders on repealing the Magnitsky Act sanctions, and visiting his new li'l buddy Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London to get the SMOKING GUN PROOF that Russia didn't interfere with the 2016 election.
The meeting with Rohrabacher was reportedly set up by the Flynn Intel Group, and Mueller is reading all their emails RIGHT NOW.
We can't imagine why, but we have a sneaking suspicion we might see an indictment of Flynn and his bouncing baby boy sometime before Thanksgiving, which will be a Festivus miracle.
UNLESS! Maybe he will get a deal for flipping on Donald Trump? We can only hope!
Feel free to make bets on which day will be Flynn indictment day in the comments of this, your open thread.
