Michael Flynn’s Conspiracy Nut Son Now Subject Of Federal Probe Into Russian Meddling In US Election

NBC News reports:

Michael G. Flynn, the son of President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, is a subject of the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, according to four current and former government officials.

The inquiry into Flynn is focused at least in part on his work with his father’s lobbying firm, Flynn Intel Group, three of the officials said. It’s unclear when the focus on Flynn began. Barry Coburn, who said he is serving as the younger Flynn’s legal counsel, said he couldn’t comment on the matter.

Flynn’s status as a subject of the Russia investigation widens the publicly known scope of the probe. NBC News has reported that those under investigation have included the elder Flynn and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Others under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller include Carter Page, a Trump campaign ally; Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser; and the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr.

Flynn’s son is also one of Twitter’s most prolific promoters of fake news and insane conspiracy memes. This morning he was busy retweeting “super sperm” owner Mike Cernovich.

    Goddammit with this Chinese water torture of this or that deplorable is now subject to scrutiny or subpoena or person-of-interest. The fucking suspense is killing me!

    • Treant

      Tell me about it. This is getting…not tedious, but to the point where Republicans can start calling it a witch hunt (they have already) if no information comes out. Which it can’t, of course.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Patience. This is all happening within Watergate-demonstrated time frames.

      • Treant

        I WANT IT NOW!

        And some five course bubble-gum, please.

            LOL

            I knew instantly!

            I’m twisted, and very adept at spotting others of my tribe.

            We had friends once, honest to god, try to do an intervention.

            “You guys are SUPER negative…”

            Thank you for putting things into perspective! (No snark there, just an appreciation.)

            I tell folks that the venom has drained after 38 years, but the fangs still need working out to stay healthy. Then smile broadly, exposing my canine teeth.

      The President’s been very clear….

      Sad!

    • boatboy_srq

      Why does Junior remind me of someone I ran into in a less-than-reputable establishment in Baltimore?

      • kiprian

        Are there any *reputable* establishments in Baltimore?

        Um, that came out the wrong way. Perhaps I could have phrased it as “Because you couldn’t have met him in a reputable establishment in Baltimore?”

        And yes, I *am* a fan of Baltimore.

      LOCK HIM UP!LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! Altogether now.

      • Maybe folks should start attending cheetolini’s rallies and begin chanting “LOCK HIM UP!”

    Wonder daddy Flynn needs to write the notes for Jr.

  • Gustav2

    Can you send someone who can’t know the truth like Michael G. Flynn to jail for perjury?

    • Chucktech

      Let’s give it a shot…

    • canoebum

      He is an adult, or at least purports to be one, so he is fully responsible for his actions or ignorance of the law. If we started giving breaks to felons for being stupid, we could get by with a lot fewer prisons in this country.

  • Ninja0980

    Lock him up!

  • bambinoitaliano

    Hello Donald this is Michael Flynn. Can I have another one of your pardon note for my son?

    • Treant

      “Dear Mr. Mueller:

      Please excuse Michael Flynn’s son, Michael G. Flynn, for his accidental treason yesterday. It won’t happen again, and I totes say it wasn’t the reason I got elected so don’t call me.

      Also, he has diearr…deararrrha…the shits…and won’t be able to testify before Congress.

      Donald Trump”

      • bambinoitaliano

        Or the shit gibbon will tell Michael to go to Kinkos to xerox a copy and write in the Jr. That’s what stupid con artist does. I bet he did one for Trump Jr.

        • Treant

          I hope nobody’s explained the limits of the 5th Amendment to the shit gibbon.

          Pardon away.

        I adore you. So very very much, right now.

    I am a commissioned Army veteran of 4 years and continued on to retire after 20 more years of employment as a Federal employee of Dept of Navy so I have known a few senior officers (Generals and Admirals) in my professional life. There were three qualities I found which they share in common: superior social skills, high intelligence and a very high moral standard.
    That said, it surprises me that a man with a character capable of this type of treasonous activity, would make it to rank of General. It boggles my mind.

    • Karl Dubhe

      What you’re doing is pretty much the same thing the British did with people like Kim Philby. Presuming that some people are immune from acting treacherously. It’s better to learn that lesson from Flynn’s example rather than Philby’s.

      • Steven B

        I’m not saying they’re immune. Only that it kinda boggles my mind in light of my own life experience.
        But point taken.

  • Pip

    Honestly, I think he needs to be investigated for the underground toddler fighting ring he has in his basement. I hear the high rollers get to take a losing toddler home with them as a courtesy gift. From what I understand he just wouldn’t be outdone by Hillary’s pizzagate.

    See, it’s fun to make up conspiracies.

    • Paul

      Yours is more believable.

  • Professor Barnhardt
    • DonnaLee

      It’s like it’s semi-coded or something. So the conspiracy wasn’t but is?

    Flynn’s son has a degree in golf course management. Where does one attain that degree — @ Trump U?
