Terrified Trump Plans To Paint Michael Flynn As A ‘Liar’ If He Exposes Russia Crimes

In the latest sign that the White House is running scared about the ongoing Russia investigation, a new report indicates that the Trump administration plans to paint former national security adviser Michael Flynn as a liar “if he accuses the president or his senior aides of any wrongdoing.”

This comes after months of Donald Trump calling Flynn a “wonderful man” and repeatedly saying he doesn’t think he did anything wrong with respect to Russia.

More from the Washington Post report:

President Trump’s legal team plans to cast former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn as a liar seeking to protect himself if he accuses the president or his senior aides of any wrongdoing, according to three people familiar with the strategy.

 

 

Attorneys for Trump and his top advisers have privately expressed confidence that Flynn does not have any evidence that could implicate the president or his White House team. But since Flynn’s cooperation agreement with prosecutors was made public earlier this month, the administration has been strategizing how to neutralize him in case the former national security adviser does make any claims.


Flynn is the most senior former Trump adviser known to be providing information to Mueller’s team. The lenient terms of his plea agreement suggest he has promised significant information to investigators, legal experts said.

Trump is going to try to paint Flynn as a liar and someone who can’t be trusted, just like he’s attempting to do with special counsel Robert Mueller, but it’s going to be a tough sell.

Just recently, Trump suggested that he may issue a pardon for his disgraced former national security adviser, who was forced to resign in February for supposedly misleading the White House about his communications with Russia.

Earlier this month, Flynn pleaded guilty to the FBI for lying and will now cooperate with the investigation, leaving the administration terrified about what information he may hand over to authorities.

The fact that Donald Trump and his team are already planning to trash Flynn, before even knowing what he’s going to hand over, makes it more likely – not less – that Flynn’s information is damning and credible.
