Flynn and Trump

muellerThis is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!--Donald Trump

 

 

 

Robert Mueller seems a responsible choice. However reportedly:

  • Trump wanted a political person.
  • Trump may nominate a political person to head the FBI.
  • Trump is known for “you’re fired.”
  • Robert Mueller works at the pleasure of President Trump and AG Sessions.

One might think of the “Saturday night massacre” when President Nixon fired Archibald Cox.

Questions remain:

  • Why does President Trump continue to defend Michael Flynn?
  • Does Trump require Flynn’s silence much as Nixon relied on Gordon Liddy?
  • Why does President Trump fear the FBI?

Does Trump see his fate as inextricably bound with Flynn’s? Perhaps we will soon find out.

      Republicans need to decide whether to stick with Trump or distance themselves from him. Similarly, Trump needs to decide whether to stick with Flynn or cut him loose. Why he seems committed to sticking with Flynn is mysterious.
