Yesterday was a day in which the news cycle was dominated by Mueller’s indictments and his success at turning Papadopoulos into a valuable witness. Today’s news cycle is appropriately dominated by the horrific terrorist attack in New York. The news cycle is fickle and has a short attention span so I suspect the lead story tomorrow will be something different. While obviously I would have to be clairvoyant to predict with absolute accuracy, I do have a prediction.  I have been puzzled by the complete lack of discussion, since the initial Mueller indictments, about Flynn. He was, after all, a major player in both the campaign and the administration. Yet there was no mention of him by Mueller or anyone else yesterday. I believe there is a simple reason for this. I think he has been flipped by Mueller. The fact that his son became a Mueller target created exactly the kind of pressure necessary to convince Flynn to cooperate. I think that this will be announced over the next few days creating the pressure that will perhaps encourage Manafort and Gates to flip. Needless to say Trump et.al. will not take this news well. As many have said over the past few days this is the beginning of the end. No doubt however, we are still months away from the end of the end.
