Sources say Mike Flynn may have turned on Trump and become a witness for the FBI

Mod: Are the rats deserting the ship? It would appear that the FBI is talking to some very interesting fellows in regards to Donald Trump and his decidedly counter-patriotic connections to murderous Russian gangster Vladimir Putin. Here's some articles that caught my news eye.

CNN analyst: Sources say Mike Flynn may have turned on Trump and become a witness for the FBI (Raw Story link): As of Saturday evening, rumors are swirling that Pres. Donald Trump’s ousted national security adviser Mike Flynn has cut a deal with the FBI and is now informing on his old boss, the president.

CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem discussed the possibility in a panel discussion on Friday night when she said that former Trump foreign policy consultant Carter Page, ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone will all testify before the House Intelligence Committee regarding their ties to Russia.

“It’s not that interesting to me because I don’t think they’ll be under oath,” Kayyem said. “The one name not mentioned is a name I mention often on this show: Mike Flynn, the former national security adviser.”

“It is starting to look like — from my sources and from open reporting — that Mike Flynn is the one who may have a deal with the FBI and that’s why we have not heard from him for some time,” she said.

Flynn, a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General, was forced to step down from the Trump administration when it came to light that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence and the public about his contacts with Russian Ambassador and former FSB spy recruiter Sergey Kislyak.

Michael Flynn reportedly turns on Donald Trump to cut deal with FBI, CNN reports (Blasting News link): The scandal involving Donald Trump and Russia took another turn after it was reported that Michael Flynn might have reached a deal with the FBI.

Even before Donald Trump was elected president, the rumors of Russia's involvement in the election and his campaign were running rampant. Since Election Day, many of those alleged rumors have been proven factual, with yet another bombshell possibly being uncovered over the weekend.

Flynn goes rogue
Not long after Donald Trump shocked the world with his historic upset win over Hillary Clinton last November, retired Gen. Michael Flynn was tapped to become the new National Security Adviser. However, Flynn wouldn't last long in the role after it was revealed that he had been in contact with top Russian government officials just weeks after the election.

Due to Trump's alleged ties to the Kremlin, the pressure mounted on the White House to make a move, and Flynn was asked to resign from his position. Since then, other members of Trump's campaign, or well-known outside advisers, have been exposed for their link to Russia. During a March 25 broadcast on CNN, a network analyst reported that Flynn may have reached a deal with the FBI to inform on Trump and the administration.

From my sources and what has been openly reported, it increasingly looks like #Flynn may have a deal with the FBI. #trumprussia pic.twitter.com/U0PHdexlFV — Juliette Kayyem (@juliettekayyem) March 25, 2017

Appearing on a Saturday CNN broadcast panel was Juliette Kayyem, the network's national security analyst, who revealed potentially troubling information about Michael Flynn and Donald Trump.

After confirming that three former Trump advisers, including ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort, former consultant Carter Page, and ex-campaign adviser Roger Stone, would all testify about their alleged ties to Russia in front of the House Intelligence Committee, Kayyem decided to shift the focus back to Flynn.

Poll: Most favor an independent commission to probe Trump-Russia ties (MSN.com link): A majority of registered voters are in favor of an independent commission to investigate the potential ties between President Trump's campaign and the Russian government, a new poll finds.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey released on Friday, 66 percent of those polled favor an independent commission, and 29 percent do not. Similarly, 65 percent consider Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election "very important" or "somewhat important."

The poll also found that 63 percent of registered voters are "somewhat" or "very" concerned about the president's relationship with Moscow. According to the survey, a majority disapproves of the way Trump is handling Washington's policy toward Russia, 59 percent to 27 percent.

    1. Hillary has nothing to do with it. This is all on Trump and his corrupt administration. The FBI is on the case, as are intelligence agencies both here and all over the world. They're rooting out a cancer. It's over, sweetheart. Your Breitbart babble is meaningless.

  3. Republican Has Epiphany: ‘Wracking My Brain To Think Of One [Positive] Thing Our Party Has Done’
    By Jameson Parker on March 25, 2017 12:55 pm ·
    Just a few years after Republicans shut down the government. Then came so close to defaulting on America’s debts that the nation’s credit rating was reduced. Then nominated a reality television star and serial liar as president. Then elected said reality television star and serial liar to actually be president even after a tape was released where he bragged about sexual assault. Republican Representative Tom Rooney had an epiphany: Maybe… maybe the Republican Party is a joke?

  5. Trump's tweet today called out the Freedom Caucus and the Heritage Foundation as responsible for the failure of the repeal and replace bill. He had previously angered the Freedom Caucus by sending his thuggish minion Steve Bannon to threaten them over their refusal to support the Ryancare bill.

    He has a very good model in doing this. Rush Limbaugh, the former darling of the right, steadily alienated one group after another among his supporters, until he really had no supporters at all.

    I encourage Trump to continue following Limbaugh's strategy, so he can leave the White House through impeachment and removal.

  6. Really, it's all about Hillary:

    MOSCOW/YEKATERINBURG, March 26 (Reuters) - Police detained dozens of protesters across Russia on Sunday, including opposition leader Alexei Navalny, after thousands took to the streets to demonstrate against corruption and demand the resignation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

    The protests, reckoned to be the biggest since a wave of anti-Kremlin demonstrations in 2011/2012, come a year before a presidential election which Vladimir Putin is expected to contest, running for what would be a fourth term.

  7. I find it ironic that the same people who would lose their minds if Hillary's private email servers had been hacked and sensitive State Department information got to the Russians are cool with their government being installed by the Russians.

    8. The scandal that prompted an investigation into hundreds of Marines who allegedly shared naked photographs of their colleagues in a private Facebook group is much larger than has been previously reported, Business Insider has learned.

      The practice of sharing such photos goes beyond the Marine Corps and beyond one Facebook group. Hundreds of nude photos of female service members from every military branch have been posted to an image-sharing message board that dates back to at least May 2016. A source informed Business Insider of the site's existence on Tuesday.

      The site, called AnonIB, has a dedicated board for military personnel that features dozens of threaded conversations of men, many of whom ask for "wins" - naked photographs - of specific female service members, often identifying the women by name or by where they are currently stationed.

      The revelation comes on the heels of an explosive story published earlier this week by journalist Thomas Brennan. He reported on a Facebook group called "Marines United," which was home to approximately 30,000 members that were sharing nude photos of colleagues, along with personal information and even encouragement of sexual assault.
