What is going on with Spanky & Flynn ?!?!???

With Flynn firing his lawyers and hiring an anti-Mueller motormouth, after turning over reams of evidence against Spanky, leaves me gobsmacked.

WTF is going on with these two? We all know they must have been plotting together all along. Spanky never sent a negative tweet about Flynn, even after it was reported that he was cooperating.

Combined with the Dowd VM, asserting Spanky's "feelings" toward Flynn, even after all that had happened, was just super weird.

We found out about Manafort screwing over Mueller. Did Flynn do the same thing?

Doesnt Flynn realize that Spanky wont Pardon him. What else could Flynn be angling for? Besides a longer jail sentence, that is.

I cant even come up with a plausible scenario for this!

Flynn may be working for a pardon, which is why he hired a Fox commentator lawyer who will repeat the talking points Trump loves to hear.

And/or, he may want to try to get the case moved to a different judge who might give him a lighter sentence. Remember what this judge said at the previous sentencing hearing? He was clearly disgusted with Flynn, asked if he could have been charged with treason, & asked if he *really* wanted to be sentenced then. Even though SCO recommended a light sentence it sounded like the judge (Sullivan?) was ready to throw the book at him.

specializing in demonizing the FBI. She has asked for a three-month continuance before sentencing in order (IMO) to have three months to ramp up all the Trump faithful to the narrative that poor Mike Flynn was sacrificed to the Deep State FBI. Once that's been accomplished and the judge nails Flynn with an appropriate sentence Trump swoops in and pardons Flynn, to the cheers of his base.

mentioned a probable blanket Pardon for everyone that has or had any exposure to the Ponzi Con Man.
