Flynn’s lawyers have stopped talking to Trump’s lawyers. Still talking to Mueller, though.


TweedleDee & TweedleDumb

❝ Lawyers for former national security adviser Michael Flynn have told President Donald Trump’s legal team that they are no longer communicating with them about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.

The decision could be a sign that Flynn is moving to cooperate with Mueller’s investigation or negotiate a deal for himself. Flynn’s legal team communicated the decision this week, said a person familiar with the move…blah, blah, blah

In large criminal investigations, defense lawyers routinely share information with each other. But it can become unethical to continue such communication if one of the potential targets is looking to negotiate a deal with prosecutors…

❝ In addition to scrutinizing Flynn’s contacts with Russia during the transition and campaign, Mueller has been investigating the retired U.S. Army lieutenant general’s role in $530,000 worth of lobbying work his now-defunct firm performed for a Turkish businessman during the final months of the 2016 presidential campaign.

I guess becoming a pimp for one or another segment of the American Military-Industrial Complex like his peers wasn’t sufficiently rewarding.

    “As President Trump delivered his inaugural address on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in January, his new national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, sent a text to a former business associate telling him that a plan to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East in partnership with Russian interests was “good to go,” according to a witness who spoke with congressional investigators. Flynn had assured his former associate that U.S. sanctions against Russia would immediately be “ripped up” by the Trump administration, a move that would help facilitate the deal, the associate told the witness.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/flynn-told-former-business-associate-that-russia-sanctions-would-be-ripped-up-according-to-congressional-witness/2017/12/06/11069b1a-da9c-11e7-b1a8-62589434a581_story.html

    (Fox news 3/10/18): President Donald Trump is in discussions with President Bill Clinton’s impeachment lawyer about joining the White House legal team, specifically to assist with the special counsel inquiry, according to reports.
    In a Washington Post report Friday, sources said investigators for Mueller’s Russia probe have asked witnesses about the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow, when Trump reportedly wrote a personal letter inviting Putin to attend.
    John Dowd, an attorney for President Trump, dismissed the Post report, saying he was not familiar with the letter. “It’s all nonsense,” Dowd told the Post. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/11/trump-met-with-clintons-impeachment-lawyer-to-assist-in-russia-probe-report.html

    “Embattled former Trump White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is joining a new consulting firm, Stonington Global, which offers lobbying, public affairs and investment advisory services.” http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/business-a-lobbying/396372-flynn-joins-consulting-firm “The hire comes as Flynn is looking at potential jail time stemming from the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Last December, the former lieutenant general pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. He is currently cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
    On the same day of the announcement, Flynn faced another sentencing hearing where his lawyers pushed to speed up the process, saying Flynn is “ready to get this chapter of his life behind him.”In a statement about the move, Flynn said he is “excited to begin this new phase of my career.”
    Stonington Global founder Nick Muzin, who has been a consultant for the Qatari government and the Democratic Party of Albania, said in a statement that Flynn would use his “military and national security experience” to help clients.”
