Last Monday brought us Indictment-gate, in which former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort and his lobbyist friend Rick Gates found themselves on the business end of 12 counts including: money laundering and failure to register as a foreign agent.
Shortly thereafter, the 14-page plea deal of George Papadopoulos was released. October 30th had been heavily teased the prior weekend and politicos were not disappointed. The immediate question became, “Who is next?”
Some of this intrigue is predicated on a fairly benign character found in the Manafort/Gates indictment document, which is labeled ‘B.’ It only follows then that there would have already been an indictment document ‘A’ — and most likely that would be germane to someone even higher up on Trump totem pole than Paul Manafort.
But who? NBC News reported that Mueller has plenty of dirt on Michael Flynn to indict, citing three sources close to the investigation. Per NBC News, “The investigators are speaking to multiple witnesses in coming days to gain more information surrounding Flynn’s lobbying work, including whether he laundered money or lied to federal agents about his overseas contacts…”
Just as Paul Manafort and Rick Gates shared an indictment, there is rumor that Flynn’s own son, Michael G. Flynn, might find himself indicted alongside his father. This would obviously put incredible pressure on the elder Flynn to cooperate with Robert Mueller’s investifation. Michael G. Flynn was considered part of Trump’s initial transition team.
Whata’s more intriguing is that one or more of the Flynns might have already been indicted. Perhaps we’ve found the owner of Indictment A?
