Michael Flynn’s lawyer had it right back in March 2017 — his client certainly has a story to tell.
That special counsel Robert Mueller clearly agrees but is not ready to share the former national security adviser’s tale with the American people cannot be anything but bad news for President Donald Trump and those around him.
Mueller told a judge in a key filing Tuesday that Flynn, a retired general who was a key foreign policy aide during the Trump campaign, provided “substantial” help to his probe into Russia election interference in 2016.
That help was so significant and timely, Mueller said in heavily redacted documents, that Flynn should serve no jail time for lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russia’s envoy to the US and his business ties with Turkey.
Tuesday’s documents did little to add to Mueller’s mosaic of ties between Trump world and Moscow, given his reticence to prejudice other investigations. But what the filing did have in common with Mueller’s past practice was the sowing of new intrigues, open loops and what have become known as “breadcrumbs” that offer tantalizing clues about the direction he is headed.
