Going to jail is a lot different then trying to pay some legal fees.
He may not be able to pay any legal bills, as it appears to be bribing or attempting to influence witnesses.

Trump has enough questionably ethical behavior surrounding him and his admin. He would really be pushing it by paying legal bills for those being questioned in an investigation into him and his campaign.

You think?



Anything past Ivanka, Don Jr., and maybe Jared looks suspicious.

And they look suspicious enough.

Well Flynn did receive his security clearance under Obama.

That's the first if only fact y'all can hang your hat on here.

Fox News have apparently gotten their phone call already:

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/11/hes...rats-out-trump

"Flynn who? He was never one of ours." And that surprises no one, the Trump camp has long since demonstrated that underlings will be cut loose if they're liabilities. This will of course make them more, not less, eager to make a deal with Mueller's team, but planning ahead was never a Trump thing, was it?

(Not even going to suggest that the Trump clan would harbor a concept like loyalty.)

Yeah, and the Trump Administration should have vetted Flynn a bit more than they did, if at all, since getting his security clearance renewed was a fairly routine process he went through in 2016, and he most likely did not not report his activities in Russia or Turkey since that time. It was the Trump Administration's job to vet everyone they hired.

This reminds me of the strategy during the Iran-Contra scandal, during the Reagan administration. And if memory serves, the strategy was successful.
