#1 The Flynn plea deal also has nothing to do with Trump-Russia, as was so poorly reported. We have little to go on, because the mainstream media want it so badly to be about Trump-Russia that they've reported that as fact. But it isn't. Say what you will, but Flynn is not stupid. He knows more about this mess of counter-intelligence than anyone. We know he despises the Obama-Clinton cabal, and we know he is a Trump-supporter, so something isn't clear about his part.

My guess (and only a guess) is Flynn's plans to coordinate a repatriation of Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen created the storm. Gulen would have never been able to survive a Turkish interrogation. Fact or fiction, once back in Turkey, Gulen would have outed his US Intelligence handlers within 24 hours of his return.

Erdogan would have gleefully used a Gulen admission as justification for pulling out of Nato, seizing Incirlik, demanding huge US monetary ransom for the failed July 2016 military coup, or all three.

Added to the mix is the potential involvement of Mike Flynn's son. A man will say or do nearly anything for a son or daughter.

Lastly, the 12 Turkish security guards arrested back in June of beating "protesters," may have not been security guards. Taking it a bit further, the protesters may have also had full-time positions elsewhere within the beltway.

Then today there is this from the Guardian: 'Turkey hopes to open embassy in East Jerusalem, says Erdoğan.'

#2 So, when (not if) they tie this back to the Obama white house, have we ever had a former POTUS indicted and imprisoned for any "High Crimes" in the past?

We know this entire stinking pile of feces that is about to hit the fan starts and finishes with Obama and his lefty friends and their militarized IRS, BLM, and various other SWAT teams wanting to turn the US into a Trotsky/Lenin dictatorship.

#3 How can Turkey open an embassy in East Jerusalem without Israeli approval? He is expressing the pious hope for a Palestinian nation with its capitol in East Jerusalem “Speedily, speedily, in our day.”

#4 How can Turkey open an embassy in East Jerusalem without Israeli approval?

Because, as everyone knows, it's really "Palestinian" territory, silly!

#8 Closest to a Potus in prison would have been the VP Aaron Burr.
