Why Mueller Taking Over Michael Flynn Grand Jury is a BFD
To quote Joe Biden. And it doesn’t end there. He is also going to be targeting Paul Manafort and Jeff Sessions may also be a target. But Sessions only talks to the Russians about his church group!
It couldn’t happen to a nicer unreconstructed segregationist.
“Special Counsel Robert Mueller takes over Michael Flynn grand jury, also targets Jeff Sessions and Paul Manafort.”
“Special Counsel Robert Mueller is sending a series of signals today about just how deep and wide his investigation runs into Donald Trump’s Russia scandal, and how swiftly and aggressively he’s moving forward. Mueller is taking over the grand jury targeting Micheal Flynn, he’s actively investigating Paul Manafort, and he now has Attorney General Jeff Sessions in his crosshairs as well.”
“That news is coming from three separate reports this evening. Reuters is reporting that Robert Mueller is taking over the existing grand jury that’s targeting Michael Flynn in the Eastern District Court of Virginia (link). For the record, that’s the same grand jury that Palmer Report told you about back in April, even as numerous other political news outlets incorrectly insisted the grand jury was “fake news.” But that’s just the beginning of Mueller’s aggression in the investigation.”
Yes, it’s amazing how the fake news of liberal conspiracies of yesterday keep becoming the verified facts of today.

“Mueller is also investigating the alleged criminal activities of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, according to the Chicago Tribune (link). This stands out as crucial because Manafort was never part of the Trump transition team or administration. Mueller’s most likely reason for targeting Manafort would be to try to nail him on his own crimes and pressure him into flipping on Donald Trump.”
“True, but Manafort was Trump’s campaign manager for four months and so could have had either a role or knowledge of Russia collusion. Remember, this was someone who was paid to improve things politically inside our country for Putin for many years. It’s not a big reach to think that maybe he continued to while serving as Trump’s campaign manager.”
“From that same Chicago Tribune report, Mueller is also looking into the role that Attorney General Jeff Sessions played in the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Sessions had already lied under oath about his own meetings with the Russian government, and he had to have known the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation would end up targeting him for it. So his decision to un-recuse himself to push for Comey’s firing probably fits the legal definition of obstruction of justice. The upshot here is that the Special Counsel is swinging for the fences, and no one in Trump’s orbit is safe.”
Sessions of course was supposed to have recused himself but he clearly had a role in the Comey firing-which is obstruction of justice. It’d also be of considerable interest to question him on his role in bringing Carter Page to the Trump campaign to begin with.
Remember that J.D. Gordon-who admitted to being directly involved with changing the RNC platform-was Sessions’ own campaign aide.
As for Michael Flynn, there are a lot of implications to have Mueller taking over the Grand Jury. Flynn is just a huge key to a lot of things. Remember and mark the words of his own attorney: He’s definitely got a story to tell.
What’s incomprehensible is how Flynn was all his baggage-paid agent of Turkey, under FBI investigation, was allowed to continue to receive classified information.
1. Why this matters. Guess who else is best buddies with Erdogan and has business interests in Turkey. Trump. It involves WH intentionally https://t.co/t2VEdgY97W

3. This since the get go. Flynn talking is key. It brings in Kushner, Trump and will expand to include obstruction.

It also includes Mike Pence who has lied and dissembled repeatedly about what he knew about Flynn. It’s pretty doubtful his repeated denials on knowing anything about Flynn’s problems beforehand can stand up to scrutiny-he led the transition. It’s virtually impossible to believe he didn’t know.
Speaking of Michael Flynn.

But many sources say that both he and Manafort are cooperating. Flynn is telling his story to the Grand Jury. Now he will be telling it to the Special Counsel.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
