Michael Flynn Reportedly "Worried" About Flynn Jr. In Special Counsel Probe

In their attempt to cobble together a "Russian Collusion" bombshell for the evening, CNN has apparently managed to confirm that Michael Flynn is in fact the father of Michael Flynn Jr.

While we jest, of course, 'worrying' would seem to be the natural reaction of a father to a Special Counsel probe that started off as an investigation into alleged Russian collusion but has seemingly morphed into a crusade to dig up any and all dirt on a handful of Trump administration officials, dirt which may or may not be in anyway related to the Trump campaign.  Be that as it may, here is CNN's take on Flynn's concern for Flynn Jr:

Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn has expressed concern about the potential legal exposure of his son, Michael Flynn Jr., who, like his father, is under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

 

Flynn's concern could factor into decisions about how to respond to Mueller's ongoing investigation. The special counsel is looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign as well as the business dealings of key campaign advisers to President Donald Trump.

 

Flynn's wife, Lori, shares his concerns about their son's possible legal exposure, according to a person who knows the family.

Flynn

As we've discussed repeatedly over the past several months, Flynn and his consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group, are under investigation for everything from a series of phone calls he made to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak to a potentially laundered consulting payment from the Turkish government allegedly tied to efforts to remove a Turkish cleric who has been living in exile in Pennsylvania.

Interviews conducted by special counsel investigators have included questions about the business dealings of Flynn and his son such as their firm's reporting of income from work overseas, two witnesses interviewed by the team told CNN. The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) requires people acting as agents of foreign entities to publicly disclose their relationship with foreign countries or businesses and financial compensation for such work.

 

Flynn Jr., who served as his father's chief of staff and top aide, was actively involved in his father's consulting and lobbying work at their firm, Flynn Intel Group. That included joining his father on overseas trips, such as Moscow in December 2015. During that trip, Flynn dined with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a black-tie gala for the RT television network, which US intelligence views as a Russian propaganda outlet.

 

Flynn's business dealings have been the subject of federal investigation since November 2016, prior to Mueller's appointment in March. Flynn is also under legal scrutiny by Mueller's team for undisclosed lobbying that he did during the presidential campaign on behalf of the Turkish government, according to sources familiar with the matter. It's against the law to lobby in the United States on behalf of a foreign government without informing the Justice Department.

 

FBI investigators also have scrutinized a series of phone calls during the Trump transition between Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the US at the time, Sergey Kislyak. The conversations centered on US sanctions against Russia and whether they would remain in place during the Trump administration.

 

Another area of interest to Mueller's team is Flynn's alleged participation in discussions about the idea of removing a Turkish cleric who has been living in exile in Pennsylvania, sources said. In the past, a spokesman for Flynn has denied that such discussions occurred.

 

The former general's consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group, took $530,000 from a company based in the Netherlands that has extensive ties to the Turkish government.

Of course, as worried as his parents may be, Jr. doesn't seem to be all that concerned after tweeting out the following over the weekend...

"The SJW are out in full this morning....the disappointment on your faces when I don’t go to jail will be worth all your harassment..."

As of this afternoon there were 33 sealed indictments filed in the DC court where the Manafort/Gates indictments originated. They are not for Russian/Trump collusion even if each item contains only one name each, it's too many people. This is RICO, Clinton Cartel going down. Flynn is a patriot, so is Robert Mueller III.

CNN is Very Fake News, never forget.

Gosh!
That seems EXCEPTIONALLY exceptionalist of thee Billy!

'Michael Flynn Was Paid to Represent Turkey’s Interests During Trump Campaign'
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/10/us/politics/michael-flynn-turkey.html

Could you possibly explain the intricacies of an apparent 'principle' by which the system of justice in the USA needs be applied exceptionally lightly to some figures in obvious conflict of interest with their duties to the nation?

Or is it just an 'alt-right' exceptionlist snowflake thing?

Laugh it up, scumbag.Explain why you support terrorists who attack people in America, Syria and around the world.  While at DIA General Flynn discovered that the United States and its allies were funding Al Qaeda and ISIS. He tried to fix things from the inside but after he was ousted by Obama and after Judicial Watch uncovered and published a declassified 2012 report he went public with the news.   Declassified 2012 DIA Report http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Pg.-291-Pgs.-287...  Former DIA Director Michael Flynn: It was a decision to fund, arm ISIS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1oEoCRkLRI&t=1s   That is why he was targeted by the Deep State.

Without the election of Donald Trump and his reliance on Flynn that policy would have continued. Hillary Clinton wanted to expand aid for ISIS with air support just as NATO did in Libya which led to that nation failing into the hands of terrorists. Americans and all people of good will owe the general a debt of gratitude.

Scumbag?
Support terrorists?

Oh my! Do you usually get so unhinged, so fast, when challenged in your pet assumptions?

You are free to read my reports FROM the middle east... on the nature of 'terror' 'terrorism' and 'terrorists'...

and critique their conclusions. Which include some salient observations about the 'fifth columnists' and sock puppets working to destroy the USA from within... via their perches on 'alt-media' sites.

But I suspect you'll just carry on screamin, snowflakes! Now bang that vote button... till the pain goes way!

By now, everyone paying attention for the past year... to anything other than looping victory parades of TR(I)UMPHALIST MAGA MORONITY and factionalist fake news extravaganzas...

knows that Flynn is a lying neo-con comrade of the Jihadi in Chief in Ankara... caught out being on the payroll of that Muslim Mafiya at the same time as being en-rolled by the Orangeman to be in charge of "national security"...

only a small slip up of conflict of interest which a FACTIONALIST ALT-RIGHT MEDIA could be forgiven for 'overlooking' of course.

As I presciently signaled to an audience of snarly "post-SwampDraininPosponement-Permanently BRAIN DEAD MAGGOTS at the time here... in regards to Mikeys' plea for "immunity"

"I would submit that this request on the part of Flynn has much less to do with Russia - and much more to do with our ongoing story here, than it is convenient for many to admit! I can do no better than to quote this extract from a comment I left on a stateside message board where this mega-story has been mysteriously left off the list of topics to be covered...."many many impartial citizens would be extremely interested to know what lies behind all of this. And how little it has to do with "Russia!" A man who wrote a book - with coauthor and neocon luminary Mike Ledeen - declaring 'war upon radical Islam'... get's caught making secret arrangements with representatives of a rogue "RADICAL ISLAMIST" regime in Ankara...to dispose of a thorn in that jihadist regime's side by 'extrajudicial' means - which would circumvent legal procedures, violate any number of American laws, leave himself and the administration he worked for two months later open to a raft of Watergate style indictments" https://storify.com/SuaveBel/gold-for-oil-oil-for-blood-part-seven

this is just the tip o the ol iceberg... for the real "titanic" waiting to take to this whole mofo down!

Reza Zarrab - GOLD FOR OIL - and the case which 'alt-medias' dare not mention! Get ready! Houses of Cards begin to tumble... as our 'neo-MikeNomad Truth Jihad' exposes a hundred naked Emperors' and their media minions, to the long overdue... light o day!

Buttons/Moutons!

With a small bit of editing... your closing line -

"Americans and all people of good will own the general a debt of gratitude"

Middle Eastern Islamists running a jihadist regime out of Ankara OWN the general... Merikans and all people of good will be paying the debt for the gratitude that regime has shown for the generals' unique mixing of duty to the nation... and pecuniary interest!

is jus perfect now!

Tis really a shame that you have developed an allergy which prevents you from reading anything which fails to confirm your own biases about events in the real world.

Otherwise, your 'hunger for truth' would have guided your attention to reading the stories about Mikey and Co., which dissolve your fantasies of exceptionalism in the acid bath of reality. U likey links?????

You mean... you closed 'your case.'

As, upon close inspection, it appeared to contain nothing more than the usual hot air balloons, clown makeup kit, and fake vomit rubber joke pad.

FYI... feelings are for 'special snowflakes' ... wasn't this billed as 'fight club?' Just because you break down at the first sign of opposition to your fantasies doesn't mean the world falls apart for the rest of us!

I'm not on the hook for splaining anything about the blackfaced POTUS klown boy... is that some kind of last ditch logical fallacy attempt you thru out on your way out the door?

And...game-set-match. Not only that but he advised against and/or stopped an already Obama administration planned joint US-Kurdish operation against ISIS at Raqqa, not because he was "allied monetarily with Turkey" but because he has never trusted the Turks and the Turks knew about the plan thanks to...Obama.Of course we could go into the bad blood between Flynn and Andrew McCabe with Flynn defending the accuser (instead of defending McCabe & "the state") in her sexual harassment case against .gov but that would be...superfluous ;-)

No
not "allied monetarily with Turkey" numbnuts.

"On the payroll of".. as in half a million $ of 'consultancy fees' paid to arrange for the advancement of a foreign state's interests... whilst serving as advisor to the POTUS-electus...

desperation setting in? Clearly the Flynn thing is critical to the psyop here... so why not show up to the 'game' with a mitt or a bat to play with? Or are you just another nude streaker, hungry for love n attention?

I just luuuv how you are defending Obama using the intelligence apparatus of the Deep State (US) to spy on a patriot. A general at that.A patriot general who knows not to trust Russians, as he has said many times. Yes, he accepted Turkish money just like he accepted Russian money, he's a capitalist and yet SOLD nothing...unlike Hillary and Podesta. Now, if you cannot (or better yet) WILL NOT provide proof that he has in fact turned on his country my branding of you as socialist scum stands. He kept American lives safe from a Turkish trap set by Obama, now you prove otherwise...

I'm not really sure what you're "jus sayin" but if you mean the code word "Gulen", I'd expect you to know who he was, given your erstwhile fluffing about the Mullah in chief in Turkey. My enemies enemy is my friend and all that, or are you just trolling for some action, too (or have no idea what you;re talking about either)
