#Flynn Legal Team Splits From Trump And Media Says GOTCHA! But Is It? [VIDEO]

The big news today will be Michael Flynn. Seems that as Americans were entering into turkey tryptophan comas, the New York Times informed us that Flynn’s legal team cut ties with Trump and joy rang out across the land…or something.

Lawyers for Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, notified the president’s legal team in recent days that they could no longer discuss the special counsel’s investigation, according to four people involved in the case, an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating such a deal.

Mr. Flynn’s lawyers had been sharing information with Mr. Trump’s lawyers about the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining whether anyone around Mr. Trump was involved in Russian efforts to undermine Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Of course, the media immediately threw the GOTCHA! flag right and left.

Just take a gander at these headlines

The Hill:  Flynn moving to cooperate with Mueller in Russia probe: report

CNBC: Flynn reportedly cut ties with Trump, indicating potential Mueller cooperation

And then there’s Twitter:

So maybe ties are cut because of finances?

Keith Olberman is thrilled beyond belief. Unicorn thrilled!

Keith just needs to stay in his basement and commune with his unicorns, but I digress.

Basically the conclusion by the media and Unicorn Keith is this: the reason the two camps are no longer talking with each other means that Flynn is guilty and Mueller has made his case!! Well…not so fast. Even the New York Times admits that this move may have taken place for multiple reasons.

The notification alone does not prove that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with Mr. Mueller. Some lawyers withdraw from information-sharing arrangements as soon as they begin negotiating with prosecutors. And such negotiations sometimes fall apart.

But you know…those terrific unnamed sources have all the dirt and ‘THEY SAY’ that the Trump attorneys think Flynn is cooperating to save his own hide or his son’s, or both. Great thing about sources. They are either super credible, or they are paid to come up with something. Anything.

Fusion GPS, anyone? That darned dossier STILL hasn’t been verified by the FBI. Furthermore, we find out that Fusion GPS was super, super busy on behalf of Hillary Clinton all the way into late 2016. But has the media reported that in terms of why Mueller is having problems finding anything? Yeah…NOPE.

Keep in mind that we’ve now found out that Fusion GPS paid for extensive research and had at least three journalists on the payroll in 2016. We don’t know which journalists yet, but their names will likely surface as the investigation continues.

We’ve written about Flynn multiple times. It was a good move by Trump to can Flynn when he did. Much of what Flynn was involved in prior to any of his work with the Trump campaign is problematic. However, this latest regarding Flynn’s work on a deal with Turkey during the transition is very troubling.

The deal in question involved getting a chief rival to Erdogan returned to Turkey and to free Reza Zarrab, a Turkish-Iranian gold trader currently jailed on federal charges of helping Iran skirt U.S. sanctions. Supposedly this involved a direct and indirect $15 million payout to Flynn and possibly his son.

Exactly. This move by Flynn and his attorneys is intriguing to say the least. But is it the Trump GOTCHA!! that the media and others in the Never Trump camp think it is? That remains to be seen.

    I’m so old, I remember being told September would be a bad month for Trump. I guess a couple of indictments did come, in late October, with charges dating back before even primary candidate Trump.

    If I was the NYT, I’d spend less time trying to GOTCHA Trump, and more time on sexual harassment training for its employees.
