As the Trump/Russia investigation continues to unfold, one must wonder…what is up with General Mike Flynn? Is he under sealed indictment(s)? Is Flynn going to be arrested? Has he already been flipped into cooperating with the Mueller-led special counsel investigation? If Flynn does “spill the beans”–do they lead directly to President Trump? So many questions but only a few answers. However, what is known about Mike Flynn only serves to offer more questions with even fewer true answers.
Remember, it has been many months since any breaking news regarding Mike Flynn has been mentioned in the media. Then, suddenly a report surfaces indicating that Flynn is worried about his son, his own Jr. This development may not seem like much, but there is some agenda behind this story reaching the news media. What is that agenda? Is it a warning to Michael Flynn, Jr.? Is it an attempt to worry, concern, or to serve as a warning to President Trump or a hint of soon breaking revelations?
The last time Mike Flynn was making major news was at the end of March 2017, as it was claimed:
“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit,” Kelner wrote. “Out of respect for the Committees, we will not comment right now on the details of discussions between counsel for General Flynn and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, other than to confirm that those discussions have taken place.”
Regardless of the eventual answer, one certainty is that Mike Flynn, Sr. would likely know precisely what criminal charges his son is likely to face. Furthermore, in a rational world, Senior would have already discussed this with his son and helped him develop some sort of best interest or defense strategy (for example, see Donald Trump, Sr. trying to “help” his son).
A few days before this latest Flynn revelation, two Twitter accounts claiming to be from Michael Flynn, Jr. randomly Tweet:
The SJW are out in full this morning….the disappointment on your faces when I don’t go to jail will be worth all your harassment…

Later the same day the other Michael Flynn, Jr. account (must be legit as the account assures us he is indeed the real Jr. and can prove it upon request) Tweets:
Yes, my father is going to get indicted. This is our last week having him not under house arrest. To all you liberals, the upper echelon of

The aforementioned second Flynn account then goes on to include two follow-up insulting Tweets that are not worth re-posting. Which one is the real Flynn Jr? The first? The second? Both?
Former justice department public director and current strategic advisor, Matthew Miller was quoted on the Mueller investigation by The Guardian saying, “We have an incomplete picture and we don’t know what the final picture might look like.”
Later in the same article, in regards to General Flynn, Mr. Miller states, “The biggest question in American politics is whether Flynn is cooperating with Bob Mueller or not. My guess is that he’s either cooperating or trying to get a pardon from Trump – which is a very dangerous thing.”
Therein, reminds all of the true Flynn problem. Nobody knows much of anything about what is really going on involving the Flynns. However, it is reasonable that a forthcoming development in this story is certain to surprise.
Until then the speculation shall continue.
Let us know what you think. Please share any of your opinions or predictions on the situation with Michael Flynn and Flynn, Jr. but is anyone (other than Mueller) overly interested in Flynn, Jr?
