General Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump, has reached a plea deal with special prosecutor Robert Mueller. Flynn will plead guilty to lying to the FBI (a lesser charge; there were, allegedly, other far more serious charges he faced) in exchange to agree to cooperate with Mr. Mueller’s investigation. In other words, Flynn has been “flipped”. Flynn’s son is also the Mueller team’s radar. Flynn was a long-time supporter of Donald Trump during the Presidential campaign and was National Security Advisor for 24 days before resigning. Flynn reaching a plea deal is the worst possible news for the White House.
