Investigative journalist Michael Isikoff told MSNBC that Michael Flynn’s heavily-redacted sentencing memo indicates three different investigations, two of which are unrelated to the Russia probe.
“What leapt out at me is there appears to be two, and likely three, investigations that Flynn has provided cooperation for and information about, only one of which is the core Russia investigation,” Isikoff said. “There are two other investigations, criminal investigations he’s provided assistance for which, as I read it, likely has been farmed out by Robert Mueller to other prosecutors.”
Isikoff declined to say whether the other two cases were related, only that the majority of Flynn’s cooperation had to do with other probes.
“When you actually parse the wording really closely, you see when they itemize what Flynn has provided information for, the substantial assistance is in this other criminal investigation, not part of Mueller probe,” noting the different language. “He’s provided information about something else in another separate criminal investigation.”
The Trump organization is facing investigations by the states of New York, Maryland, and by Washington D.C. Additionally, his son-in-law Jared Kushner has been the subject of several state and federal inquiries.

The View goes ‘insane’ trying to unravel GOP’s mind-bending impeachment conspiracies
Panelists on "The View" questioned their own sanity while trying to make sense of the theories House Republicans threw out to defend President Donald Trump against impeachment.
The four panelists, minus an absent Meghan McCain, were thoroughly confused by GOP arguments against the evidence presented in the first public hearing of the impeachment inquiry -- where Ukraine ambassador Bill Taylor revealed the president was overheard discussing investigations of Joe Biden with the EU ambassador by phone.
"Here's the craziest part of that call," said co-host Abby Huntsman. "It's an incredible breach of security."

Pelosi smacks down Fox News reporter’s question — and hilariously explains to Trump what ‘exculpatory’ means
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday smacked down Fox News reporter Chad Pergram after he insinuated that House Democrats seemed "excited" about the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump.
During a press conference, Pergram asked Pelosi, "Why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu was going on?"
"All this milieu is a seeking of the truth," she replied. "It's called an inquiry."
Pelosi at this point turned to the camera and seemed to address Trump directly.
"And if the president has something that is exculpatory -- Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence -- then he should make that known," she said. "And that's part of the inquiry. So far we haven't seen that."
