Not Just Flynn

Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials. ... The officials said the intercepted communications were not limited to Trump campaign officials, and included other associates of Mr. Trump. On the Russian side, the contacts also included members of the government outside of the intelligence services, they said. All of the current and former officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the continuing investigation is classified.
The choice for the Republicans in the Congress is becoming clear: Which takes precedence, guys, your loyalty to your country or your loyalty to your party?

So far, it seems to be "party uber alles", if you listen to the Republican congressman who would have launched official investigations to go after Hillary or Obama for illegal parking. Apparently, they're busy doing other shit.

Funny how the FBI found it necessary to send out a letter about Clinton's emails but stayed mum about Trump's Russian connection.

(Also funny how Trump loved leaks, as long as they were about somebody else.)
