Where There Is Smoke, There Is Fire: Michael Flynn

There is an old saying: Where there is smoke, there is fire.

Today, former Trump official Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his interactions with the Russian government. The sources report that a senior official within the administration gave the green light to start secret talks with the Russians. While the name of the senior official has not been formally made public, some believe that it was Jared Kushner.

This directive did not come out of thin air. Somebody, whether it was Kushner, Trump himself or someone else who has yet to be named made the decision to have this communication with the Russians. I find it completely ironic that during the election, the chants of “lock her up” were heard throughout the country.

I have not read the emails, so I cannot comment on the contents of said emails. While I believe that using a private email server for business purposes was a lapse in judgement on Clinton’s part, as far as I know, it’s not illegal. What is illegal (again within my very limited legal knowledge) is secretly colluding with Russia to swing the election toward Trump and not just that, but openly lying about those interactions.

Only time will tell if Trump (G-d forbid) lasts until 2020 or someone finds the smoking gun that leads to impeachment before then.Β  But where there is smoke, there is fire (and Trump).
