Now that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to charges of lying to the FBI and is prepared to fully cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, new facts are emerging that are even more damning for Donald Trump and members of his administration.
One of the first — and most troubling — developments has been provided by Bloomberg, which reports that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was the “senior administration official” who personally instructed Flynn to make contact with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak for the purpose of discussing a UN resolution which would have condemned the building of settlements by Israel:
“[Kushner] called Flynn to tell him he needed to get every foreign minister or ambassador from a country on the U.N. Security Council to delay or vote against the resolution.”
The entire UN resolution matter was also coordinated with Israel, even though Trump had not taken office yet:
“Much of this appeared to be coordinated also with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose envoys shared their own intelligence about the Obama administration’s lobbying efforts to get member states to support the resolution with the Trump transition team.”
So, on December 22, 2016, Flynn, on Kushner’s direct instructions, met with Ambassador Kislyak. He met with the Russian ambassador yet again a week later, this time to discuss the possibility of getting American sanctions on Russia lifted when Trump became president.
It has long been suspected that Kushner is one of the officials most deeply enmeshed in the machinations of meeting with Russians to help guarantee his father-in-law became president. Kushner was also one of the main figures who met with a Russian attorney at Trump Tower to obtain damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
Now that we know both Kushner and Flynn are neck deep in Russian connections and lies, the only thing that remains to be known is exactly what President Trump knew and when he knew it. That, too, should become clearer in the near future.
