Sneaky.

Just months into a cooperation agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller, former national security adviser Michael Flynn sent an unsolicited text message to one of President Donald Trump’s top allies in Congress, urging him to “keep the pressure on.”

“You stay on top of what you’re doing. Your leadership is so vital for our country now,” Flynn wrote to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), one of Congress’ most vocal critics of the Mueller investigation. “Keep the pressure on.”

POLITICO confirmed the details of the exchange, first reported by CNN, which came in April 2018, just five months into Flynn’s cooperation agreement with Mueller. Flynn began assisting Mueller’s probe after a Dec. 1, 2017 guilty plea on charges that he made false statements to the FBI about contacts with Russia’s ambassador.

Flynn sent Gaetz a separate set of messages on Feb. 14, 2019, the day Attorney General William Barr was confirmed: images of a bald eagle and an American flag. Gaetz confirmed the substance of the messages and said he didn’t reply. He also emphasized he had no past relationship with Flynn or his son, Michael Flynn Jr.

It’s unclear if Mueller was aware of Flynn’s outreach to lawmakers, particularly to one of the special counsel’s top antagonists on Capitol Hill. It’s also unclear if Flynn sent messages to other lawmakers. Flynn’s attorney did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The special counsel’s office declined to comment.

So not only was the White House reaching out to Flynn to obstruct his cooperation with Robert Muller, but he himself also seemed to be asking others to undermine its validity on his behalf. 

I think this illustrates exactly why Congress needs to question Flynn under oath, and they might also consider questioning this Matt Gaetz asswipe as well.

    “I think it’s clear that the Republicans have been cowards to the point they have debased themselves in unprincipled ways that I don’t think a lot of us ever thought was possible — to pledge to Trump because they are afraid of losing an election,” REALLY

    Florida lawmakers were briefed over the past week by the FBI and U.S. Homeland Security about the Russian voter system hack but were told by law enforcement officials not to publicly disclose information about the case. It is still unclear what other county was affected but sources told Politico it was a mid-sized county on the state’s eastern coast.

    Russian hackers breached a county elections department in the Florida Panhandle where voters turned out heavily for President Donald Trump in 2016, according to a report confirmed by POLITICO.

    Washington County was one of two counties successfully hacked by Russians seeking voter information files. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security in the past week have briefed Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida’s congressional delegation about the attack, but federal authorities have asked that the names of the two counties be kept confidential.
