23. Flynn a bigger witness than we realized???

This is interesting.

Check out the signatories on the Flynn memo.

Robert Mueller

Brandon Van Grack

Zainab Ahmad

Interesting names and potentially a clue to what Flynn was helping with...

1/

Brandon Van Grack is a prosecutor specializing in national security.

He has a background in counter-espionage (read: cases involving spying on U.S. entities).

His highest profile case: prosecuting a hacker who aided ISIS.

2/

Zainab Ahmad is also a prosecutor with expertise in international and extranational cases (i.e. crimes abroad).

She is an absolute badass with a long track record of bringing terrorists to justice.

This profile is a good read.

Taking Down Terrorists in Court
Zainab Ahmad has prosecuted thirteen international terrorist suspects for the American government. She hasnít lost yet.

3/
Ahmad has deep experience working with our intelligence operations and with other countries to gather evidence, apprehend suspects and prosecute criminals.

Think: making cases where the bad people are somewhere else.

4/

Letís pull these together...

What case is Mueller working on that involves:

1) Hostile foreign actors
2) Spying on U.S. entities
3) Hacking
4) Connections to the Trump Campaign

The one that comes to mind for me is..........

5/
The entire conspiracy to hack and weaponize DNC emails.

Russia <-> WikiLeaks <-> The Trump Campaign

Flynn got pinched for lying about calls with Russian contacts.


6/
Nineteen meetings is a lot of get-togethers to talk about a couple phone calls.

When the prosecutors across the table specialize in espionage, intelligence, hacking, covert multinational plots and rogue foreign actors, theyíre talking about something bigger:

Conspiracy.

7/
Mueller has already put cases in the courts to prove the Russian hacking piece.

He has a sealed indictment of Assange to prove the weaponizing of that hacked data.

I think Flynn just gave him the last mile:

Proof of the Trump Campís end of the bargain.

The quid pro quo.


8/
Russia hacked.

WikiLeaks distributed.

Trump was supposed to pay that bill by lifting Russian sanctions.

Iíd guess Flynn delivered that last piece in spades.

Tied the whole thing together with a nice bow.

9/
If thatís the case, all there is left for Mueller to do is take down all the confederates and supporting actors.

Stone, Corsi, Junior, et al.

Originally, I thought Flynn was likely to be of little value. Now I think he may be a star witness.

He saw the deal go down.


10/10
Note: One loose end to bear in mind...

Zainab Ahmad is deepest in terrorism with roots in the Middle East.

Not at all out of the realm of possibility that all of the above is true AND thereís also a case involving Saudi as well.
