Donald Trump’s Russia scandal may have moved closer to impeachment amid reports that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may have flipped on the president and is now working with the FBI on the investigation against Trump.
“It is starting to look like, from my sources and then also from open reporting, that Mike Flynn is the one who may have a deal with the FBI and that’s why we have not heard from him for some time,” Juliette Kayyem, an assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs in the Obama administration, said in a panel discussion on Friday night.
Kayyem noted that of the four former Trump advisers who are said to be subjects in an FBI investigation of potential ties to the Russian government, Flynn is the only one who has not volunteered to testify to Congress. The other three advisers, Paul Manafort, Carter Page, and Roger Stone, offered to testify earlier this week.
A confirmation that Flynn has struck a deal of some sort with the FBI would be a major blow against the Trump White House
A spokesman for Flynn declined to confirm or deny if this is true.
