We were supposed to believe that former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn was in bed with the Russians, because Russia is the source of all evil, but it turns out he was in bed with Russia’s rival, Turkey.
It’s almost as if Constantinople is strategically important and thus the locus of Byzantine conspiring. (Cough sibel edmonds Cough.) From the Daily Caller:

While serving as a top adviser on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, Michael Flynn signed a contract in which he agreed to utilize an “investigative laboratory” made up of elite former intelligence officials, including a former CIA director, to conduct research and make “criminal referrals” on behalf of a Dutch shell company linked to the Turkish government, federal records show.
But Flynn appears to have over-promised on the contract, which was signed on Aug. 9 between his firm, Flynn Intel Group, and Inovo BV, the shell company.
R. James Woolsey, the former CIA director identified by his title in the contract as a member of Flynn Intel’s “investigative laboratory,” says he was not aware of and never agreed to perform any of the work laid out in the contract.
The investigative work promised by Flynn Intel was most likely focused on Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric exiled in the U.S. whose extradition is being sought by the Turkish government.
Gulen … Where’d we ever hear that name before?
The true goal was to present evidence on Gulen’s complicity in the July 15 coup attempt, as well as on a network of charters schools operated in the U.S. by Gulen’s supporters.
Presumably, the American deep state is keeping Gulen on ice in the Poconos in case Turkey one day wakes up missing a government, and the U.S. just happens to have a Turkish-government-in-waiting in exile only a two hour drive from JFK and Dulles airports. In the meantime, the Gulenites are free to rip off the American schoolboard taxpayers through immigration fraud and skimming in their c. 140 American charter schools, with the CIA telling the FBI to back off. The CIA wouldn’t do that for Nixon after the Watergate break-in, but the FBI’s aggressive investigation into Gulen charter school corruption back in 2014 seems to have since vanished.
I don’t think we should turn Gulen over to Erdogan, who has been increasingly megalomaniacal in recent years. But there’s probably plenty of evidence to put Gulen on trial in the U.S. for crimes against the American taxpayers and citizenry. Of course, he might rat out his American Deep State hosts who gave him the go ahead for that.
So that probably will never happen.
