#1 I'm trying to formulate a 25-words-or-less summary of this convoluted story.

#2 There is only one reasonable explanation for this: The intelligence community viewed the special counsel’s investigation as an insurance policy meant to destroy Trump. And Flynn was just a means of getting to Trump.

The author's bottom line above. She's coming to the party a bit late. Many of the guests have already departed.

#3 GEN Flynn was, to my mind at least a great innovator with intel and timely distribution. I wouldn't underrate the animus the collected agencies have for him personally.

#4 Ref #3: My take on Gen. Flynn as well. Yes, the "animus of the collected agencies" generally excludes those within the Department of Defense.

#5 Why is Steele not being prosecuted as an "unregistered foreign agent"?

#6 The left has assiduously tried to take down Trump before and after he was POTUS. Everyday it is death-by-a-thousand-cuts from all directions from the left, Donks, RINOS, MSM, and even some foreigner s. Trump must have the skin of an armadillo. The usual Pub response would have been to cave long ago. Go Donald and thxs for taking the slings and arrows.

#7 Why is Steele not being prosecuted as an "unregistered foreign agent"

He was very likely "registered" (and compensated) under a different type of....hmm hmm system. To charge him as an "unregistered foreign agent" would open up a virtual Pandora's box. A Pandora's box that would make any defense attorney ecstatic.

Very possibly the same with Nellie Ohr I might add.

#8 To paraphrase the old joke, they pulled out just enough to win.
