Tightening the Screws; Flynn Edition

US congressional investigators are examining whether Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, secretly promoted a plan by private business interests to build US-Russian nuclear power plants in the Middle East while he was serving in the White House.
A letter released on Wednesday by top Democrats who are investigating Flynn, who was forced to resign from his post in February because of questions about his links to Russia, accused him of violating federal law when he failed to disclose a trip he took to the Middle East in June 2015 to promote the US-Russia project, as well as several contacts with foreigners that they allege ought to have been declared.
I'm guessing that in the area of "the crime of failing to disclose", that this isn't exactly going to be a tough thing to prove.

Russian nuclear power plants in the middle east... What could go wrong?

You know, Obama warned Fergus not to hire Flynn. Do you suppose he would be in this much trouble if he had taken that advice?

Doug, Trump's default decision tree is to look at what Obama would have done and then do the opposite. If Obama publicly denounced child molestation, Trump would immediately trade the Melaniabot in on a much younger model.
