Senate intel Dem: ‘Signals’ show Flynn has been cooperating with the FBI ‘for some time’

Published

on

In an appearance on CNN, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) told host Wolf Blitzer that he has compelling evidence to suggest President Donald Trump’s disgraced national security adviser Mike Flynn is cooperating with the FBI and potentially has been “for some time”.

The segment began as news broke that House Democrats are demanding documents from Flynn on information he allegedly left off of his security clearance disclosures, at which point Blitzer cut to Sen. Whitehouse of the upper legislative body’s judiciary committee.

“All of the signals are suggesting that he’s already cooperating with the FBI and may have been for some time,” Whitehouse said.

According to Whitehouse, there are a number of reasons to believe Flynn is complying with the FBI, including the “holes” left in many of the most recent revelations about Trump and his associates’ relations with Russia.

“All the subpoenas are one hop away from Flynn,” Whitehouse said. “He’s like the hole in a donut of subpoenas.”

One of the subtler reasons to believe Flynn is working with the FBI, Whitehouse argued, is his uncanny silence in recent months.

“One of the more talkative people in Trumpland has gone absolutely dead silent,” he concluded, “and that’s what prosecutors strongly encourage cooperating witnesses to do.”

Whitehouse said Flynn’s potential cooperation with the FBI could have major implications for the investigation into Trump-Russia collusion.

“It could be a huge deal, because who knows what Trump has said to him, both during the campaign and during the early days of the presidency,” Whitehouse said. “Apparently trump has been in touch with him after his firing from the White House to tell him to stay strong, which, in some circumstances, could be looked at as manipulation of a witness or obstruction of justice.”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
