Donald Trump is doing it again. As we speak, he’s trying to create the kind of superfluous controversy that’ll serve as a distraction for what he knows is coming. Instead, for anyone who’s paying close attention and has seen this pattern before, Trump is merely tipping off what’s about to surface. Michael Flynn just sold him out, a major devastating blow – meaning that something even bigger is about to surface.
Trump stil has yet to address the Flynn situation. He hasn’t attacked Flynn for deciding to cut a deal against him. He hasn’t attacked the media for reporting the Flynn story. Instead he’s trying to create an entirely different kind of distraction by attacking President Obama in particular and attacking the media in general. We’ve seen this before. It can only mean that a major Trump-Russia bombshell is about to land, and that Trump has been tipped off because the news outlet in question has asked him for advance comment on the story before publication. So what’s coming?
Trump tweeted “Fox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!” This tells us that the next big Trump-Russia bombshell is probably coming from CNN. The timing here is crucial.
Now that Michael Flynn has decided to begin cutting a deal, it’s likely that several additional Trump advisers will rush to try to cut deals as well, while they still can. Accordingly, these current and former advisers may begin leaking part of what they know to the media, in order to immediately demonstrate that they have information that can still be valuable to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
