"The Brexit referendum was the petri dish for the Trump campaign": the links between Team Trump, Leave & the Kremlin thetimes.co.uk/article/reveal…
"House Intel is investigating whether #CambridgeAnalytica played a part in promoting fake Russian messages ... inquiries have been fruitful"
Neil Kent, former convener of Cambridge Intelligence Seminar, which was accused of Kremlin links, speaking at strongly pro-Russian forum
Among Cambridge Intelligence Seminar's past attendees: Mike Flynn, who made a new friend there: Svetlana Lokhova wsj.com/articles/mike-…
Lokhova famously gave Flynn an “erotic postcard” Joseph Stalin sent to a young woman in 1912, & he wrote her emails signed 'General Misha'
If charges against Flynn are indeed imminent, I hope Mueller finds a way to incorporate the erotic postcard from Stalin into the indictment.
Flynn knows where all the #TrumpRussia bodies are buried (perhaps literally), including role of Cambridge Analytica
In light of the suspicious events in Saudi Arabia (abetted by Kushner/Trump) recall Flynn's nuclear scheme with KSA
Flynn continued to advocate for his Saudi-US Middle East nuclear proliferation project as National Security Advisor
“Outside normal channels" = Trump regime SOP

Thomas Barrack (for whom just-indicted Rick Gates worked directly as of June) keeps popping up
Mueller investigating plan involving Flynn & @mflynnJR to kidnap US-based cleric Gülen & deliver him to Turkey's prison island of Imrali for a modest fee of $15 million wsj.com/articles/muell…

Mueller investigating Flynn role in plan to hand Gülen over to Turkey; also examining whether Flynn et al sought to to free (Giuliani-repped) Reza Zarrab, facing federal charges in NY for helping Iran evade US sanctions turkishminute.com/2017/11/10/mue…
April 2017 article on Giuliani's backroom dealings at the highest level of Turkey's govt to secure the release of Reza Zarrab, who was being prosecuted by @PreetBharara
Reza Zarrab is now cooperating with federal prosectors in a money laundering case, and may be providing information on Flynn's ties to Turkey and his $15 million deal to kidnap Gülen nbcnews.com/news/us-news/d…

General Misha flipped.

Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn has cut off ties with Trump's lawyers, a sign that he is negotiating with Special Counsel Mueller's #TrumpRussia investigation nyti.ms/2jRW0W1
"Among the interactions Mueller is investigating is a private meeting that Flynn had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Jared Kushner during the presidential transition"
Trump's Thanksgiving message to the Coast Guard seems eerily prescient.
"The call from Flynn lawyer Robert Kelner to Trump attorney John Dowd [that he can no longer discuss Mueller's investigation] came Wednesday evening and is an ominous sign for Trump and his close associates" washingtonpost.com/politics/flynn… #TrumpRussia
The original obstruction of justice: Trump asking Comey to drop FBI investigations into Flynn centering on his calls with Kislyak during the transition.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go."
Pace Ty Cobb, "There are so many avenues yet to be fully explored that it is inconceivable that this investigation is coming to a close"

Experts: Mueller's probe will 'cast a dark cloud of suspicion' over Trump for foreseeable future thehill.com/homenews/admin… (h/t @Kostian_V)
Rudy is up to his eyeballs in the Turkey scandal. Hard to believe he won't be implicated by cooperating witnesses Flynn, Zarrab, or both.
The same Fethullah Gülen that Flynn & Turkish govt officials plotted to kidnap.

Mueller focuses on Flynn’s work on Turkish film project attacking exiled cleric, as legal team's move signals possible cooperation with investigators wsj.com/articles/mike-…
"Flynn and his business partner, Bijan Kian, hired consultants to create a film attacking the Muslim cleric .. "We don’t want anyone to know the Flynn Intel Group has anything to do with this"
.@PreetBharara questions Putin’s role in Erdoğan regime’s ties to Trump's former NSA Flynn turkishminute.com/2017/11/27/%ef… #TrumpRussia
How worried is Erdoğan about Reza Zarrab's testimony?

"Turkish police officials who worked on the Zarrab case were later detained in widespread purges, and 4 of the prosecutors are wanted by the authorities" nyti.ms/2BnjV3H
Witness tampering.

(Recall that Woolsey attended the Sept 2016 meeting with Flynn and Turkey's FM at which Gulen's rendition was discussed, and has been interviewed by Mueller.)
Former Trump national security advisor Flynn's role in Middle Eastern nuclear project could compound his legal issues
washingtonpost.com/politics/micha… (h/t @thegarance)
"General Flynn's actions are part of a broader pattern of concealing his foreign contacts, payments, travel, and work on behalf of foreign interests.

The bigger question is this: What did @POTUS Trump know and why did he disregard all the red flags?"

(hint: complicity)
Great catch by @WendySiegelman: Artemenko (who has personal ties to Trump) lied about his connection to Manafort #TrumpRussia
Artemenko, together with Sater and Cohen, was central to the scheme to lift sanctions on Russia.

That proposal was hand-delivered by Cohen to (soon-to-be cooperating witness) Flynn, days before he was forced to resign as NSA nyti.ms/2lwMTIT
Flynn’s promotion of a plan to build dozens of nuclear plants in the Mideast, for which he had been paid as a consultant, went deep into the White House even after he resigned as NSA wsj.com/articles/flynn… #maddow
"Since Flynn's resignation, his former private-sector colleagues have continued to lobby various federal agencies about the nuclear plan and recently met with Jared Kushner"

Also notice Thomas Barrack Jr, who had bailed out Trump during one of his many times of need.
Flynn's ally Derek Harvey continued to push the nuclear project even after NSC lawyers directed work on it to stop.

Harvey is now on the House Intel along with fellow saboteur @DevinNunes. No wonder why the committee's #TrumpRussia investigation is impotent.
Jared Kushner was interviewed by Mueller’s prosecutors earlier this month, with a particular focus on his Dec 2016 meeting with Flynn and then-Russian ambassador Kislyak, as well as the Trump campaign's data analytics operation (Cambridge Analytica) amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/11/29…
In the latest indication that he is cooperating with Mueller's investigation, Mike Flynn is expected to plead guilty to lying to the FBI about 2 conversations with Kislyak, appeared in court Friday morning nyti.ms/2keM7BI
The 2 Flynn-Kislyak conversations at issue:
• persuade Russia to kill a UNSC resolution condemning Israeli settlements
• request that Russia refrain from responding to Obama's sanctions

Note Kushner's role.
.@BrianRoss on @ABC News Special Report: Flynn promised full cooperation with Mueller's investigation and is prepared to testify that Trump "directed him to make contact with the Russians” abcn.ws/2ixWHDL #TrumpRussia

April 30, 2014: Head of Defense Intelligence Agency Mike Flynn forced out by Obama administration washingtonpost.com/world/national…

Chaser.
Less than 48 hours after the election, Obama warned Trump against hiring Mike Flynn nbcnews.com/news/us-news/o…
The order behind one of the 2 false statements to which Flynn pled guilty today came from Trump's son-in-law.

Jared Kushner (in coordination with Netanyahu) instructed Flynn to contact Russia regarding the UNSC resolution condemning Israeli settlements bloomberg.com/view/articles/…
.@johnrobertsFox: Source with full and intimate knowledge of the investigation identifies Trump transition official ("PTT official") in Flynn charging document as deputy NSA KT McFarland
KT McFarland is also the nominee for US ambassador to Singapore.
Judge Napolitano on @FoxNews: "I think this is the tip of a prosecutorial iceberg. It's a nightmare for Donald Trump because General Flynn was his constant companion" (h/t @davidmackau) #TrumpRussia
"The documents made public on Friday show that the transition team knew that Flynn was going to be discussing sanctions with the then-ambassador Kislyak, and raise new questions about what Trump knew about the conversations" nyti.ms/2BCAfOg #TrumpRussia
Dec. 29, 2016: Obama announces new sanctions on Russia→ Flynn consults with Trump transition team, then calls Kislyak

Dec. 30, 2016: Putin declines to retaliate
Live by the tweet, die by the tweet.
According to @ABC:
Jared Kushner is the "very senior" Trump transition official who told Flynn to contact Russia.

Flynn is also prepared to testify that he was directed to contact Russia by Trump abcnews.go.com/US/senior-trum… #TrumpRussia
Breitbart clearly relishing the opportunity to pin TrumpRussia on (((Kushner))).
How fitting that his confession would be on Twitter.
February 13: Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Advisor nyti.ms/2l8YoXo

February 14: Trump asked Comey to end Flynn investigation nyti.ms/2rnUb1z #TrumpRussia
Karma.

Emails Dispute White House Claims That Flynn Acted Independently on Russia nyti.ms/2BCvUdQ (h/t @Green_Footballs) #TrumpRussia
“If there is a tit-for-tat escalation Trump will have difficulty improving relations with Russia, which has just thrown U.S.A. election to him": K.T. McFarland #TrumpRussia
"After learning President Obama would expel 35 Russian diplomats, the Trump team quickly strategized about how to reassure Russia ..

As part of the outreach, Ms. McFarland wrote, Flynn would be speaking with the Russian ambassador hours after Obama’s sanctions were announced"
Trump knew.

"McFarland’s Dec. 29 email exchange about the sanctions was forwarded to Flynn, Reince Priebus, Stephen Bannon and Sean Spicer [among others] ..

A phone call between Trump, Flynn, McFarland, Preibus and Bannon was scheduled for 5 pm that day"
Nice hire, Harvard.

Spicer on January 13, lying his arse off: Flynn was just wishing Kislyak Merry Christmas.
Good piece from @jedshug on the implications of the Flynn plea deal: further undermines Trump’s pardon power, bolsters the obstruction of justice case and turns up the heat on Pence and McGahn slate.com/articles/news_…
WH lawyer Don McGahn told Trump in January that Flynn had lied to the FBI and Pence amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/12/04… #TrumpRussia
"[McGahn's conversation with Trump] raises new questions about what Trump knew about Flynn's situation when he urged Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn and whether anyone in the White House, including @POTUS himself, attempted to obstruct justice"
"Trump was aware of [Flynn lying to FBI] a couple of weeks before a conversation with Comey in which Trump asked him if he could be lenient while investigating Flynn, whom Trump had just fired" washingtonpost.com/politics/trump… #TrumpRussia
The quid pro quo for Russian electoral interference.

2016 RNC delegate: Trump directed change to @GOP platform weakening support for arming Ukraine n.pr/2ANz0OM #TrumpRussia
The RNC delegate, Diana Denman, will be testifying before the House and Senate Intelligence committees to discuss the events surrounding the drafting of the @GOP platform.
"Good to go": Flynn texted partners about US-Russia nuclear plan during Trump's inauguration, whistleblower says politi.co/2BHNnRr
Crucial point: "the whistleblower approached House Democrats in June, but Mueller asked them to keep the information secret until now" #TrumpRussia
Flynn told a former business partner (involved in the nuclear project) that economic sanctions against Russia would be “ripped up” as one of Trump's first acts nyti.ms/2AW5NB5 #TrumpRussia
The neo-cons are BACK, baby.

"The US would provide military support to defend these installations .. This would also provide a pretext for placing US military forces in these countries... [Their citizens] will be better off when we recolonize the Middle East"
1) Trump lifts sanctions on Russia
2) Russia builds nuclear reactors in the Middle East with Flynn's friends
3) Trump deploys US forces to defend the nuclear plants
4) “This is going to make a lot of very wealthy people" (in the White House)
