Some Turkish Russian spy, we guess

Here is some news about disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn that should be surprising to no one: HE IS AN ACTUAL FOREIGN AGENT. We knew about his weird and creepy ties to Russia and how he was being paid to lobby for a Dutch company founded by a Turkish businessdude, Ekim Alptekin, on behalf of the Islamist Turkish regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan. We knew this way back when he was nominated for the NSA position. But now the Turkey thing is news because Flynn filed papers, for official, that say he was totally a foreign agent for the Turkish government:

Flynn and his firm, Flynn Intel Group Inc., filed paperwork with the Justice Department formally identifying him as a foreign agent and acknowledging that his work for a company owned by a Turkish businessman could have aided Turkey’s government. Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday called the action “an affirmation of the president’s decision to ask General Flynn to resign.” […]

In paperwork filed with the Justice Department’s Foreign Agent Registration Unit, Flynn and his firm acknowledged that his lobbying “could be construed to have principally benefited the Republic of Turkey.”

WEIRD! He was paid $530,000, just for a little work on behalf of Not America, all while he and his pals in Russia were helping Donald Trump “win” the presidency. And this news is BRAND NEW, except for how it was reported back in November (ALL OVER THE PLACE), though not in quite this detail, because as the AP explains, Justice Department filings are far more detailed. Wonkette knew about it! It was in our piece called Trump’s Likely Pick For National Security Advisor Only A Little Unhinged And Corrupt! But we guess folks didn’t quite care then :(

Know who it’s definitely brand new news for, allegedly? Donald Trump!

President Donald Trump was not aware that his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had worked to further the interests of the government of Turkey before appointing him, the White House said Thursday. […]

[Press Secretary Sean Spicer] declined to say whether Trump would have appointed Flynn if he had known about the lobbying.

We guess Spicer “declined to say” because he has literally no clue whether Trump cares if his NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER IS OR HAS RECENTLY BEEN A FOREIGN AGENT. Hell, we don’t even know yet for sure whether or not Trump himself is a foreign agent. He’s surrounded by Russian spies and Russian oligarchs and Azerbaijani mobsters, after all.

But really? This is NEW news for Trump?

On election day, November 8, 2016, Flynn published an op-ed about how Turkey is one of America’s most important lovers, which insinuated that America really needs to turn over this exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen, who, depending on who’s telling the story, is either a moderate Sufi scholar, or a RADICAL ‘SLAMIC TERRIST who is doing “sleeper cells” and is literally Osama bin Laden. (Some say! But on the other hand! The “other hand” tends to be wingnuts!) Anyway, Turkey wants him back, probably to kill him dead, and again, Flynn wrote that op-ed on election day, right before he (allegedly) cut ties with his foreign agent gig. Huh!

On November 18, 2016, Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings wrote a letter to then VP-elect Mike Pence, that basically said we knew Flynn was being paid to lobby for Turkey. Guess who else says he just found out about Flynn being a foreign agent? That’s right, it is Mike Pence, the guy who Flynn supposedly lied to about his meetings with the Russian ambassador, which led to him getting fired.

How long had Donald Trump and Michael Flynn been gay married back in November? Oh, like, since the beginning of the campaign. TRUMP AND PENCE DID NOT KNOW? Pfffffffffft bullshit.

As we see it, there are two possibilities, and only the first one is (probably) true:

  1. Donald Trump is lying, because he’s a pathological liar who lies. Also, he doesn’t care that his BFF he picked for the NSA is an agent of a foreign government, because Donald Trump isn’t fighting for the side of the Americans.
  2. Michael Flynn is OMG SNEAKY. He would leave Trump Tower all the time like “BRB GOTTA JACK OFF AND GET A SMOOTHIE,” and two days later, Donald Trump would remark to nobody in particular, “Man, Michael Flynn jacks off and drinks smoothies for a long time!” Meanwhile, he was in Turkey the whole time, acting as an agent of a foreign government. When he would finally surface at Trump Tower a few days later, he would look at Trump and say, “Whoa, that was a good smoothie and J/O session, I should do it again tomorrow!” Because Donald Trump is stupid, he never figured it out.

Anyway, this is just a cool story that needs to be spread far and wide, because again, for official, DONALD TRUMP’S NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER WAS LITERALLY A FOREIGN AGENT. Why the hell isn’t the media beating the shit out of the White House right now over this?

IT’S. A. PRETTY. BIG. FUCKIN’. DEAL.

      It will take an election cycle or two at the end of which we will have a rational Democratic President and Senate.

    so here comes the true test of the Trump administration. Apparently since Tom Price is off to ruin health care for everyone, his seat in the House is up for grabs. So imagine what a slap in the face to Trump if the Democrat candidate wins the seat in a very red state of Georgia. it doesn’t mean we WON…but it means the tide could be changing sooner than Republicans and Trump would want.

    so come on Georgia….prove you’re less partisan and more about doing what is fucking right for the fucking country!!!!

    4) Profit. Trump is still too stupid to realize they have total control over him.
    5) Smelling opportunity, concentrated evil and chaos coalesce into Steve Bannon who manifests into corporeal form as a scabacious tumor on Trump’s neck.
    6) Trump retreats onto his gilded toilet and tweets, still too stupid to realize he is not remotely in control of anything.

    • LesBontemps

      My bet is that in return for bailing him out of some debt problems, the Russians have been using Trump and his closely-held business ventures to launder oligarch money of questionable provenance, and to stash their wealth in overseas real estate. Now that the hooks are in, Trump has to do their bidding or face financial ruin, public humiliation and prison. It’s the classic mobster move.

      • Scrofula

        I just wouldn’t be surprised if he’s not totally aware of the damage they’d do to his “fortune”. I mean, Trump’s real “skills” before were in his accountants. They’re the ones who wrote off a billion-dollar loss for him. He might not even know his hotel in Baku is just a laundering scheme.

          Bushwa. He has interests/branding contracts/potential bldgs worldwide, and knows every fucking dime he can make from them. He also, too, knows that he got into hock up to his neck from a bunch of mobsters to reach this point. Ergo, if he’s POTUS and, in his humble opinion, above the law and immune from conflicts, he can force his creditors over a barrel to get what they want from US, and trade off our nation’s best interests to pay off his debts. Meanwhile, so long as his demented devotees keep Rupert afloat, Faux will pimp the party line, and (R)s – as ever craven and drunk with power – will allow this treason to go unpunished in order to give themselves a fucking tax cut and dismantle social welfare system. At least, that’s our view.

    • AndyC316

      I actually have a theory that Trump is completely unwitting in all of this. Of course, he’s shady as fuck (obvs), got into bed w/ Russia (a PEE soaked bed), and then Putin called him up all BFF like and said, “Comrade Trump, guess what you’re gonna do?!” At first, Trump thought he was gonna do a Russian pee hooker and he was excited, but what he was actually gonna do was run for PRESDIDENT!!! Of AMERICA!!!

      But it was bad (BAD!), because Putin had lots of EVIDENCE on all of shitty things Trump had been up to all over the world… But Trump thought he was SMRT (just FYI, he does NOT mean SMART), so every stupid, shitty, racist, misogynistic thing he done did in the primary/general had been a attempt to derail his own campaign.

      BUT, Putin knew Americans better than Trump knew, and Trump wasn’t able to stop the shit stained/pee soaked Trump Train©. It was UNSTOPPABLE!

      Now, Trump, not being a TOTAL fucking idiot/COMPLETE moron (he’s only ALMOST a total fucking idiot/complete moron), is like, “this shit is a goddamned nightmare, I gotta get tf outta this!!” SO, he’s the leaky leaker leaking all over the joint. WHY? Because Trump is prob the laziest fucker that ever lazed, and running shit is hard, even if it’s running America into the ground!

      SO, Trump picked all these bozos so that the lamestream media would HAVE to look into this shit… like, Mike Flynn’s a fucking Turkish plant?! OKAY — MIKE FLYNN for NSA!! Jeff Sessions been fucking Sergey Kislyak on the dl?? JEFF SESSIONS for AG!!!

      In conclusion, Trump is really just as SAD about all this as you and I are… SAD! BUT! He’s doing his best to help orchestrate his downfall… like, when he tipped off Twitter that TRUMP TOWERS was under surveillance

      Now, before you ask, yes, I’m on meds, but by meds, I mean crack… so take the above w/ a bit of skepticism, because I’m not Louise Mensch, and it’s only a WORKING theory. THANK YOU <3 <3 <3

      well, they did ask him to do a spin just to make sure he “looked the part” from both front and back.

      Apparently the President can get literally anyone a security clearance just through say-so.

    • gratuitous

      I’m also curious as to whether Gen. Flynn might not have something worth investigating by the Department of Justice. I can’t imagine someone becoming a general and not having a little experience with security clearances and the like. Did it not occur to Flynn that he should consult with a government ethics attorney about just what might be required of him?

      I mean, nobody in the Trump administration has any governmental experience, so why should they bother themselves with ethics this or conflict-of-interest that? But didn’t it occur to Gen. Flynn to muse, “Gee, I’ll bet being the national security adviser requires a high level security clearance. I wonder if I have any disqualifying events in my recent past?”

    Anyone know why he decided to register as a foreign agent NOW? You know there’s a reason and it wasn’t that he just remembered he had to.

  • BeachBum

    As you can all see, I now live in a constant state of shock.

  • Mister Smith

    Toxic Trump is vile scum.

  • Mike Steele

    early chat shows feature DJT apologists asserting his genius for unloading Flynn…and we’re not even talking Faux. W/o help from MSM, resistance is up against the wall. If our (D) reps don’t call out their colleagues as traitors, like Maxine has the balls to do, we’re toast.

    • “M”

      They’re morons.

      Pay no attention unless you’re doing opposition research; otherwise you might fry your brain. And they’re certainly not worth that.

  • Mike Steele

    lady MS here, totally O/T: Mike expects to get off the birthday hook next week by buying something. I am holding out for the gift of time, demanding he stay awake to watch 2 movies I bought some time back…
    ‘The Collector’ 1965 and ‘The Loved One’, based on Evelyn Waugh ‘American Way of Death’. Has anyone seen these classics? They are both fascinating enough to drag your attention away from ongoing political train wreck – former, a compelling psycho-drama; latter, a brilliant societal farce, featuring Liberace as a casket salesman. Even if he wimps out, suggest that fellow Wonkers avail themselves of these gems for an hour or two of nice time…

    • bobbert

      The Loved One is hilarious.

      • Mildred Broxon

        The book was pretty odd, too.

  • Noxious Resistance

    Fox didn’t report it so Chump never saw it.
    He don’t need no IC.

    • HooverVilles

      Yep he knows moar than the military generals and moar than the intelligence officials because he is smaart and has the bestest brain. /s LOLZ.

  • mfp

    how in the hell is it even possible or legal for a former lt gen, or any officer of the US military, to become a representative or foreign agent of any kind?…WTF?

    • ANNG14

      It’s not. The Army was investigating Flynn for violation of the Constitution emoluments clause and Pentagon policy for accepting money from Russia and as a lobbyist for a foreign country. Flynn is dirty just like Trump and the rest of his crew.

      • Chris

        And let’s not forget that Flynn has been fired by his last two jobs (military and Whitehouse).

  • mfp

    can both 1) and 2) be true simultaneously?….i think…well….mmm…maybe….yes–yes, i think they can…sure, whynot?

    • ANNG14

      The investigations into Hillary cleared her. So in this case no.

  • William

    Convene a panel and take away his pension. Traitors and liars need to be dealt with https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fe159ad7f225b518ee6148429e0b5813f12682c8fd813775d9940c9d19310baa.jpg

    Gen. Flynn: would have been a perfect movie role for George C. Scott. Co-starring Alec Baldwin as you-know-who and featuring Mila Jack Daniels as the First Lady, and Randolph Mantooth as Mike Pence.

    • Chris

      Not Randolph Mantooth! Libelzzz!

  • “M”

    That’s officially bullpucky, as I’m sure every reader here now knows, especially if they watch MSNBC.

    Flynn’s attorneys TOLD the WH transition team IN NOVEMBER that he would likely have to file a foreign agent registration with the DOJ.

    Everybody knows who the chairman of this transition team was, right?

    Pence.

    Yes, that’s right — the same guy who got on Faux Noise in January, was it?, and flat-out lied that “this was the first time he was hearing about ANY of this”.

    Suuuuuure, Mikey.

      Trump, Pence, Putin and their minions don’t seem to get that the truth has a way of coming out.
