Turkey issues warrant for ex-CIA officer over alleged role in 2016 coup

The Turkish government has issued a warrant for the arrest of a former officer in the United States Central Intelligence Agency, which Ankara claims was instrumental in the failed July 2016 attempt to topple the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The move comes amidst heightened tensions in relations between Ankara and Washington. The two NATO allies have partially revoked entry visas for each others citizens, while it is alleged that Michael Flynn, US President Donald Trumps former national security advisor, had an illegal agreement with Turkey to help abduct a Turkish dissident cleric living in Pennsylvania and help transport him to Turkey.

All the signs in the Russia probe point to Jared Kushner. Who next? | Jill Abramson

The investigation is taking a new twist, as Donald Trump appears to be distancing himself from his son-in-lawGame of Trumps is about to get really bloody. With special counsel Robert Muellers investigation moving ever closer to President Trump himself, it looks like someone inside the family is about to be sacrificed.

With Michael Flynn, Trumps former national security adviser, pleading guilty last week to the charge of lying to the FBI, much more about the Russia scandal is now coming into focus. The Flynn flip was by far the most dramatic event so far in the investigation into alleged Russian interference in 2016s US presidential race. Flynns evidence can only lead up the chain of power towards Trump.

Robert Mueller forced Michael Flynn to agree to wear a wire

This week Special Counsel Robert Mueller finalized a plea agreement with Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who agreed to testify in the Trump-Russia scandal in exchange for sentencing leniency. Now that the deal is official, its details are becoming a matter of public record. Among the most fascinating aspects of the plea deal: Mueller forced Flynn to agree to wear a wire.

In exact words, the deal required Flynn to agree to participate “in covert law enforcement activities,” as dug up by the Guardian (link). In other words, Flynn had to agree to spy on other suspects or targets involved in the Trump-Russia scandal. In Flynn’s case that could only have meant wearing a wire, planting a bug, or something similar. Considering that Flynn is ex-military and used to run the Defense Intelligence Agency, it’s perfectly reasonable to believe he could have pulled this off. Now for the bigger question: when the heck would this have happened?

We don’t know that Flynn actually did wear a wire, only that he was forced to agree to wear a wire. The strange part is that the clause is being included in Flynn’s plea deal just now, as his deal is becoming public, so everyone in the Trump-Russia scandal now knows not to talk to Flynn anyway. Some will argue that this is merely boilerplate language. But I believe there are two other possible, and more specific, explanations.

I’ve long suspected, based on a variety of circumstantial evidence, that Michael Flynn began partially cooperating with Robert Mueller this summer, to try to get Mueller to leave his son alone. If so, it’s possible Mueller had Flynn wearing a wire and spying on Donald Trump’s people back then. The other explanation would be that Mueller is throwing this clause into Flynn’s plea deal, despite not being able to act on it, simply to scare every other Trump-Russia suspect. The more paranoid they become about the possibility of Mueller already having dirt on them, the more likely they are to cut a deal.
