(VIDEO) CNN Analyst Makes Huge ‘Bombshell’ Accusation about Flynn Turning On Trump Then Changes Her Mind?
Juliette Kayyem, Harvard professor, CNN Analyst and former Homeland Security Adviser to Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, dropped what she may have hoped would be a “bombshell” when she recently discussed on CNN that former NSA director Michael Flynn “may have a deal with the FBI.”
A deal with the FBI would mean that Flynn was turning against President Trump and would be “spilling the bean” on such things as possible connections between Trump and Russia.
At least that’s what can be implied from her statement about a deal.
Prior to her latest accusations on CNN, Kayyem tweeted on March 24 about the possibility of talks between Flynn and the FBI. She was confident then that something was about to happen even if there were no supporting facts to go along with her statement.
Shortly after that, Kayyem posted her CNN interview about a “deal” which she claimed was based on “sources and what has been openly reported”:
“From my sources and what has been openly reported, it increasingly looks like #Flynn may have a deal with the FBI. #trumprussia.”
What sources? Who openly reported this other than Kayyem?
Almost immediately, Kayyem started walking back her earlier comments by posting the following on Facebook.
“Juliette N. Kayyem shared their video.
There is a lot of attention today on the CNN segment last night. I, as have others in the national security field, have observed that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is potentially a key figure in the investigation; I have said so many times for many weeks. Last night, I noted that other Trump players named in recent stories have agreed to speak in front of the House Intel Committee and that Flynn has not. And I stated that it raises a question about whether he may have a deal with the FBI. Moreover, sources I have talked to in the field also are increasingly wondering the same thing. But, to be clear, I did not say on this segment that I have any confirmation that he is actually cooperating or that I have talked to anyone who does. My informed analysis of this case is based on my years of experience in the national security arena.
For what I said, feel free to watch this clip:”
