Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie tells us that Comrade Stupid intends to cast doubt on the veracity of Michael Flynn.
In a sharp break from a sympathetic posture toward Michael Flynn, President Trump’s legal team is prepared to attack the indicted former national security adviser as a liar, according to the WashPost’s Carol Leonnig:
What’s new: “[T]he administration has been strategizing how to neutralize [Flynn] in case the former national security adviser” makes claims implicating Trump or his aides.
“In court filings, the retired lieutenant general admitted that he lied to the FBI about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the December 2016 transition.”
One person helping craft the strategy: “He’s said it himself: He’s a liar.”
If they can pull it off, this is the triple salchow of double-speak, and even the Russian Judge (especially the Russian Judge) will give them a perfect “10.”
Comrade Stupid’s lawyers obviously expect General Flynn (Moscow Mole) to have damning testimony, so speaking as a summalawyer, their best bet is to destroy the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses.
So let’s help the prosecution:
- Preznint Stupid is well known as a liar hisself. It is documented everywhere. Why should we believe him now?
- Also/Too: If Moscow Mole really is so untrustworthy, how come it took so long—a year!—before anybody in the Fourth Reich mentioned it?
