Trump Just Lashed Out About Flynn Charge And The FBI In Late-Night Twitter Rant

After yesterday’s bombshell move by special counselor Robert Mueller, in which he charged Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn with “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI, Trump has shown no signs of going down without a fight.

Always eager to try to cast the blame on someone who is about as relevant in politics today as Lincoln Chafee, Trump attempted to divert attention from yesterday’s momentous development to former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a series of furious stream-of-consciousness tweets.

Flynn’s guilty plea to the relatively minor crime of lying to the FBI about meetings he held with Russian officials during the transition are enough to scare Trump to taking to Twitter in these desperate rants; the fact that Flynn only faced a single charge suggests that the disgraced former national security adviser has been cooperating with or has already provided Mueller with information.

Flynn’s charge and subsequent guilty plea comes only weeks after previous charges were levied against three of Trump’s former aides, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, his longtime associate and former campaign adviser Rick Gates, and former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos.

Papadopoulos has already pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and has been cooperating with investigators.

Flynn famously started the “lock her up” chant at the Republican National Convention while attacking then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

While Trump desperately relitigates the election on Twitter, nearly a year after Hillary Clinton left the political spectrum, Mueller continues to close in on the President and his criminal administration from all angles. Trump can digitally shout into the ether until his fingers finally give out, but that’s not going to stop justice from finally being served.
