1. In case it isn't clear? IT'S ON. Flynn discussing plea deal with Mueller. Told you we'd get big news this week. An easy guess with Trump's freakouts.
2. Quick reminder of what a Flynn deal means: he must give Trump someone higher up in the ladder so Pence, Trump jr. , Kushner, Trump himself all candidates.
3. Considering Mueller ALREADY has Kushner for multiple offenses, I'd say Pence, Trump Jr. and Trump himself are the most viable options.
4. Trump himself will be the last one Mueller gets to, so this would leave Pence and Trump jr. for the time being. Of course, Flynn may well deliver ALL of these people.
5. Abc News has "learnt" that Flynn's lawyer met with Mueller's team this morning, meaning they didn't see anything directly: they were told.
6. There's no way anyone would risk compromising a plea deal by leaking this without authorization, so most likely, this is a strategic release.
7. Flynn's attorney "typically would have a series of off-the-record discussions in which prosecutors lay out in detail for Flynn & team" what they have on him.
8. Then they'd be all "so, if you want a reduced sentence, you better start singing like a canary, right now, and we mean give us info implicating those above you". 😏
9. At that point, an agreement would be reached, and something like what we've seen with good old George Papadopoulos would happen.
10. Make no mistake, this is a game played for the public (bc it's been made public and it's no coincidence) for a reason. Puts pressure on others.
11. Multiple sources said Flynn flipped months ago (and @LouiseMensch first reported what ALL MSM is saying now: that he flipped to help his son).
12. I also don't think anyone would risk putting this out in public, not Mueller, not defense, unless they already had everything in place.
13. So regardless of the intel that I do have, of Flynn flipping quite a while ago, just logically I see no chance of it happening WHILE press is reporting it.
14. I believe things have been agreed upon and now it's a nice game (and a smart one) to make all others involved VERY nervous.
15. Whatever the circumstances that made the current moment happen, one thing is clear: this is being revealed ON PURPOSE.
16. The other thing that's clear is that EVERYONE from Kushner to Trump Jr. to Pence to Trump himself should be VERY worried, bc Flynn can implicate them ALL.
17. If I were Flynn, I'd give up Pence and Trump himself first and foremost, in exchange for the maximum possible "kindness" with charges on part of Mueller & team.
18. Shouldn't be that difficult to give Pence & Trump up, considering they threw Flynn under the bus publicly: "HE lied to us!". Pence especially.
19. Let's not forget Trump & Pence PLUS Kushner (who MET with Kislyak together with Flynn), all conspired with Flynn AND covered up his illicit foreign contacts.
20. Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen can also be directly implicated by Flynn, bc of the "peace deal" discussed with pro putin Ukrainian MP that Cohen hand delivered to Flynn's WH office.
21. So Mueller has MANY avenues to get the top of the Trump team, including Trump himself, thanks to Flynn's direct involvement. All depends on what Mueller wants.
22. So yeah, Flynn doesn't have much choice, and Mueller is the one with the royal flush in his hands. I'd bet Ty Cobb and WH lawyers are in emergency meeting right now. 😂😂
23. This we're seeing right now is a HUGE plot twist in terms of MSM narration and public intel. I'll say again, it's happening for a reason.
24. So get comfortable and get drinks and snacks, bc this just turned into COMPLETE hell for Trump & co. #ItsMuellerTime /END

1. Simon Kukes, a Houston-based oil executive, sent an email to a Russian official in Moscow in July 2016, boasting of his connections to Trump campaign and requesting a face-to-face meeting. The official is Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, a former Russian ambassador to Norway.
2. NBC HAS THE EMAILS. Kukes wrote to Pavlovsky" I have been actively involved in Trump's election campagn, and am part of the group on strategy deveopment. I will be in Switzerland July 20 to Aug. 2. Let me know how you are doing and whether you want to meet." Oh. OH.
3. NBC obtained emails through a London-based investigative project funded by MIkhail Khodorkovsky, a Russian opposition figure. The Dossier Center gathers information to try to expose high-level corruption in Moscow. NBC reviewed the emails in conjunction with The Guardian.

1. MANAFORT AGREED TO PLEA DEAL WITH MUELLER. Politely bear in mind, no matter what we actually SEE of this, given the evidence Mueller has, there's NO WAY Mueller entered a plea deal without meaningful cooperation. The cooperation part? Can easily be sealed.
2. This means Manafort could easily do the same as Cohen. Just plead guilty to n. counts, and we don't see any "cooperation" agreement. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The two can easily be separated, with the cooperation agreement sealed for obvious reasons here.
3. I absolutely don't think the news about the "joint defense agreement" is current and I also think it is being put out for a specific reason. It's clear that there's been coordinated effort to make everyone think Manafort won't "flip" . That's the easiest way to protect him.

1. Manafort is INDEED in talks with prosecutors (MEANING MUELLER bc HE is the prosecutor in this case) about a possible plea deal. BLOOP, people. BLOOP!
2. Two people familiar with the matter "cautioned that the negotiations may not result in a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller". Naturally, bc there won't be a deal unless Manafort sings like the birdiest birdie that has ever sung.
3. "But the discussions indicate a possible shift in strategy for Manafort" No kidding. When the prospect of the rest of his life in prison materialized, Manafort finally saw that oopsie, he was cornered and if he ever wanted to enjoy life again? Best to talk to Mueller, stat.

OH IMAGINE THAT. Guess who knows all about this? Michael Cohen. Who took care of this type of business. FOR TRUMP.
2. The details of the story are BEYOND disgusting but pay attention to this detail that former Playmate Shera Bechard cites in her LAWSUIT against Broidy: "Bechard recalled Broidy telling her that he admired Trump’s "uncanny ability to sexually abuse women and get away with it.""
3. "Among Bechard’s allegations are that Broidy refused to wear condoms and didn’t disclose to her that he had genital herpes until years after their sexual relationship, according to a court filing. "
Not even going to comment.

1. Bruce Ohr is the Justice Department lawyer who was told by Christopher Steele that Russian intelligence believed it had Trump "over a barrel". Start seeing why Trump is going after him?
2. These details pertain to a breakfast that happened on July 30, 2016. Ohr described the breakfast to CONGRESS this week in a private interview. And that's how the GOP Trump lackeys went to tell Trump, he found out and decided he can't have a witness at DoJ.
3. So if Trump so much as THINKS of touching Bruce Ohr, that is direct obstruction of justice, and his tweets already constitute witness tampering. AND everyone in Congress who was present at the interview KNOWS that. Just so you know who to hold accountable.

1. What Cohen's actually explosive knowledge of facts covers, that can make the entire house of cards crash: the hacking and the Trump Tower meeting, both of which TRUMP KNEW about and in the hacking case, an event Trump even encouraged.
2. In the case of the hacking, there's a $50,000 mysterious payment Cohen made to an undisclosed tech company to help the Trump campaign, that awfully sounds like the arrangements the Steele dossier says Cohen made to pay off Russian hackers "without it being traced".
3. Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis specifically said on @maddow that Cohen has knowledge about the hacking that is of interest for Mueller. And the detail of the tech company payment emerged from the indictment. If the connection is accurate (and it seems like it is), this is huge.
