We are still waiting to hear about what was actually done with the Flynn IT network.
A lot has changed in the past year and a half since then.
I am a bit surprised that we are still in the midst of a Flynn Intel probe.
This is a very big deal for the American public, and it has been for many years.
We are just waiting to see what will happen next.
If it was all over, Flynn would have been fired, just like he was fired from his job as FBI director, by the FBI.
It’s not a mystery.
But the investigation, the way it’s being handled, and the way the news media are reporting it, is just confusing and doesn’t make sense.
So, let’s talk about the facts.
Who was Flynn?
Flynn was fired by the Trump administration in February, 2017, after misleading Vice President Mike Pence and others about conversations he had with a Russian diplomat in December 2016.
That was three months after President Trump was inaugurated, and less than two weeks after Flynn had taken a call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
What was Flynn doing there?
The Flynn Intel investigation is currently focused on the actions of Flynn, and not the Russians.
It’s focused on two people.
The first is former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Flynn had a business deal in Russia that was a potential source of conflict of interest for the Trump campaign.
At the time, Flynn was the national security advisor to President Donald Trump.
In January 2017, Flynn made a $25,000 contribution to the Republican National Committee (RNC).
But, according to an investigative report published by Politico, Fletcher’s role in the Trump transition team in 2016 was far more limited than previously believed.
As a former Trump campaign staffer, Flynn had no official responsibility to help oversee the transition.
Instead, he helped coordinate and lead the transition efforts of a new Trump team that was not led by anyone in the campaign.
What’s the story?
The Flynn investigation has focused on Flynn and the RNC, and specifically on a conversation he had in December with Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the US.
How did this conversation come to light?
In December 2016, after the election, the Trump administration fired Flynn from his position as national security Advisor to the President.
And, by the time the investigation began, we knew that Flynn had made several false statements to Vice President Pence about the conversation.
We also knew that Fateh, the company he worked for, had paid Flynn for work he did on behalf of the RNC.
Why is this important?
It raises important questions about what Flynn’s actions were all about.
Was he trying to curry favor with the incoming Trump administration?
Was his job to influence the incoming administration?
Was he being paid by Fateh?
In fact, Flynn’s work for Fateh was an obvious conflict of interest.
His job was to help the RNC with the transition, and FATEh was one of the companies he worked with.
He worked for Fatehs Russian subsidiary.
Does that mean Flynn lied to Pence about this?
Foley did not lie to Pence.
Indeed, in an interview with The Washington Post, former FBI Director James Comey said that there was no evidence that Flynn ever lied to the FBI or anyone else.
Comey said, “There is no evidence that any of these conversations were intended to influence our conclusions or our actions, and I don’t think it is appropriate for me to speculate.”
There are many things we don’t know.’ “
The vice president asked me about this, and what I said to him was, ‘You know, there are a lot of different scenarios that can come up in the investigation.
Is that a red flag? “
We’re going to have to sort that out.”
Is that a red flag?
No, it’s not.
Even if Fraynt was misled about Flynn’s activities, he still would have no reason to lie to the Pence administration.
Is he the most likely candidate to be charged?
He’s not likely to be, because Freynt’s case is ongoing and has been investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Are there any other possible candidates? There is.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the former special counsel to President Trump, is leading the investigation into who actually took part in the Flynn communications and how they came to be revealed.
Mueller has said he will release
