We now have an answer to Trump’s increasingly erratic and unstable behavior. Mike Flynn has pled guilty to lying to the FBI and is cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The New York Times reported that the guilty plea shows that Flynn is cooperating with Mueller, “The charges were the latest indication that Mr. Flynn was cooperating with the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. Mr. Flynn was scheduled to appear in federal court in Washington at 10:30 on Friday morning. A plea deal with Mr. Flynn brings Mr. Mueller’s investigation into Mr. Trump’s inner circle. Such an agreement suggests that Mr. Flynn provided information to prosecutors, which may help advance the inquiry.”
Mike Flynn was an inner circle member of the campaign and Trump’s first national security adviser. The criminal charges have officially reached the West Wing, and Flynn knows where the bodies are buried. There is a good chance that Flynn’s information could lead to charges against Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., and his son in law Jared Kushner.
Trump has been increasingly described as isolated and delusional over the last few weeks. The President believes that the Mueller investigation will be over by the end of the year. The Mike Flynn guilty plea has opened new doors that the could keep the probe going for months or even years.
Donald Trump is getting crazier because the walls are closing in, and unlike during the 2016 election, he can’t blame anyone else to distract from his own behavior.
Robert Mueller is closing in on him, and Trump can’t hide his desperation.
