If Flynn Is Just a Liar, Why Did Trump Keep Defending Him?

When former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI a month ago, President Trump’s attorney Ty Cobb released a statement that described Flynn as a “former Obama administration official” who only served “for 25 days during the Trump administration.”

As we’ve seen with Paul Manafort and George Papadopoulos, Trump’s default position is to downplay his relationship with any former associates who happen to be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team. However, it’s harder to distance yourself from a former top White House official who memorably led a “lock her up” chant on the first night of your nominating convention.

The leniency of Flynn’s plea agreement suggests that he’s promised Mueller’s team valuable information, so Trump’s team has come up with another strategy. The Washington Post reports: “President Trump’s legal team plans to cast former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn as a liar seeking to protect himself if he accuses the president or his senior aides of any wrongdoing, according to three people familiar with the strategy.” As one person working on the plan put it, “He’s said it himself: He’s a liar.”
