[yt_dropcap type=”square” font=”” size=”14″ color=”#000″ background=”#fff” ] J [/yt_dropcap]ournalist Carl Bernstein, of Watergate cover-up fame, and now a CNN commentator has predicted that the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn will end up revealing a “cover-up” of connections between President Donald Trump’s team and Russia during his presidential campaign.
Bernstein has stated that “Flynn is almost like the ball of yarn that begins to unspool and is key to understanding the cover-up,” and that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who now leads the Justice Department’s probe into Russia’s role in the election campaign, will eventually get to it.
The comments came just a day after a bipartisan press conference in which the top members of the House Oversight Committee said that Flynn likely violated the law by failing to disclose foreign connections and payments when applying for a security clearance.
Representative Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the committee, said that he had seen no indicator that the disgraced national security adviser disclosed a $45,000 payment he had received from Russian state-owned television network RT for giving a speech. Flynn also appeared to have received more than $500,000 for representing the Turkish government.
Bernstein also stated that “it’s obvious that Gen. Flynn is in up to his neck in terms, not just of possible crimes involving his speeches and whether or not he registered as a foreign agent, which he should have and didn’t.”
While all this is going on, Trump continues to create distractions galore from the investigation which in some way are working. But facts are a stubborn thing, even in the era of “alternate facts.”
