So why aren’t other GOP MoC breaking ranks like @justinamash? At least one of them is probably in deep trouble.

A filing by Mueller makes reference to alleged obstruction of Michael Flynn’s cooperation w/his investigation by people associated with the 45 WH *and Congress*. 👀
If this sounds familiar it’s because it made recent news as a voice mail from 45’s lawyer (thought to be John Dowd) to Flynn’s which could be taken as pardon-dangling — i.e., inducement for Flynn not to cooperate “too much” with the Mueller probe, suspecting he’d cut a deal. /2
“Old news” some said, already referenced in Vol. II of the Mueller report. But “and Congress” part is new in this court filing. Didn’t make news coverage AFAIK. H/t to @talkingfedspod for this, a prime example of how the big picture gets lost in picayune daily developments. /3
Here’s the fun part: Judge Sullivan is ordering them to fork it over by 5/31, meaning we could learn identity / details of the person(s) doing the pardon-dangling (obstruction of justice) from Congress. 🍿 /4
This kind of thing is straight out of a gangster movie. Made man gets arrested & book thrown at him. Feds “flip” him to cooperate for a lesser sentence. Godfather worries about being ratted out, sends minions to persuade him not to talk. Except we’re talking POTUS & Congress. /5
Extraordinary here: What @harrylitman called “real flexing of muscles” by Judge Sullivan, ordering these transcripts to be made public when they otherwise wouldn’t be. But the “OR CONGRESS” tidbit alone is a find. /x
