Flynn Needs A Special Prosecutor

It took less than three weeks for the Trump administration to produce its first blockbuster criminal scandal. Gotta be some kind of a record.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz acted with his usual alacrity and immediately added General Mike Flynn to his list of Trump scandals he will never, ever investigate. Senator Rand Paul ruled out the very idea of “having Republicans investigate Republicans.”

“I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party. We’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do, like repealing Obamacare, if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans. I think it makes no sense.”

So the answer is simple. Appoint an independent Special Prosecutor. Do it now.

Note: General Flynn was touted as an intelligence expert. He didn’t think that his phone calls were being monitored? Of course, it’s just WaPo anonymous sources again. All the more reason to launch an independent investigation.

    This morning they were saying he quit to “spend more time with his family”. Now it’s Trump who fired him because he couldn’t trust him. Later still, they’re blaming the messenger and saying it was the leaker who broke the law, not Flynn.

    To me it looks like they keep changing the story to help Trump stay out of trouble. I believe Trump trusts Flynn completely. He seems complicit in the affair.

    Yes! Special prosecuter! This is even MORE serious then a blow job. I know, crazy thing to say.

    What did Trump know, and when did he know it?

    We don’t know much at this point, but I have a theory and a timeline (because why not?)

    (1) Hillary campaign and DNC cook up fake news about Russian election interference (possibly by Boris and Natasha?) to distract from the content of the e-mails released by WikiLeaks.

    (2) Corporate media trumpet the story loudly as instructed, but then start asking awkward questions. For example, “If this is such a big thing and the (still-secret) evidence for it is as solid as we have been assured by anonymous sources, then why has no action been taken against Russia?”

    (3) President Obama expels Russian spies and institutes sanctions against Russia to make a gesture in support of the Evil Russkie Conspiracy Theory in the media.

    (4) Trump transition team panics, realizes that they have to reassure Russians that this is all kabuki theater before the Russians react to Obama’s “punishment.” Phone calls are made, including by Gen. Mike Flynn. Phone calls are recorded by CIA.

    (5) Media ask questions about Trump’s apparently close relationship to Russia. More panic, and a cover-up as Mike Pence lies about Trump contacts with Russia.

    (6) Anonymous CIA spooks tell FBI about phone transcripts, FBI tells acting AG, acting AG tells White House Counsel. Even more Trump panic ensues behind closed doors.

    (7) Anonymous CIA spooks go to WaPo with allegations of lying by Mike Pence, Gen. Flynn et al. and Trump panics again, fires Flynn. But seems like this is just the beginning.

    The low-life, low-energy, fake-news, so-called New York Times editorial board agrees with Richard:

    Bring On the Special Prosecutor

    Anything the Times recommends after the drubbing it has received in missing Trump, and the verge of bankruptcy irrelevancy histrionics of the old media, are not going to change the plain old simple fact this whole “Russia done it”, narrative is a steaming pile of bullshit.

    This is an exercise in futility for imploded in obama’s 2nd year, and no one acknowledged it or admitted it at the time..just whistled past the graveyard for 6 more years…unto losing Congress and now this Trump presidency.

    Blame obama, he is ultimately the utter incompetent responsible.

    Blame the victims, that’s standard.

    The New York Times is “missing” Trump? Has he gone somewhere we haven’t heard about Glenn?
