I don't know what to think of the Michael Flynn situation -- it's just the latest in a long series of extremely troubling connections between the U.S. and Russia that defies any reasonable explanation -- but Moby(!) seems to think he has it all figured out. While this would normally sound like the rant of a conspiracy theorist gone mad -- you know, like Donald Trump -- it's gotten to the point that it's hard to dismiss it out of hand, especially when Flynn thinks he served the American people "in such a distinguished way" after being shit-canned by two presidents in a row. (What the hell are you talking about?)
Add to this that a friend in D.C. -- who is extremely bright and well-connected but suddenly seemed to be unraveling before my very eyes when I met him for a drink -- insists that Mike Pence is "under sealed indictment," that Washington is about to be "taken over" by Russia and divided into zones -- "but don't believe it when it happens" (huh?) -- and that there is a major terrorist attack in the works, so Clinton would have done the same thing Trump did, albeit in a legal way. We knew electing a petty and vindictive man with no government experience was a recipe for disaster. But I think even his biggest critics are a tad surprised it's taken less than a month for the whole thing to all but implode.
Was this a "thank you" for helping sway the election in Trump's favor?
If you're still not convinced there's something amiss about this Russia situation, don't forget that the ONLY THING the Trump campaign wanted changed in the Republican Party platform was to gut its anti-Russia stance on Ukraine. Why?
Yes, yes, yes.
