Picture this: An American political figure works on a presidential campaign— one of the most crucial ones of the century. He works with his puppet candidate to secure a spot in the White House and works even harder to build international relationship to undergird the policy and agenda set forth by his candidate. His candidate wins the election under a cloud of suspicion and appoints him as the National Security Advisor. This figure secretly meets with a senior Turkish official weeks before this unpopular president-elect is inaugurated into the highest seat in the free world. Imagine that the meeting is to discuss a quid pro quo where said security advisor would promise to be paid to do the dirty work for the government of Turkey. He accepts the directive… dun…dun… dun…. Sounds dramatic, right? Seems like a twisted spy movie plot, right? Woefully, it is not. This is drama courtesy of our new administration is live and direct.
While the Hip-Hop world signs petition to get battle-rapper turned superstar, Meek Mill out of jail, the double standards of the American legal system bleeds out in the most embarrassing way. Meek Mill gets knocked for popping a wheeling on his bike, but former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is out here “allegedly” carrying out directors from Ankara from a comfy spot in the White House, sources have revealed.
Individuals who support Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in last year’s presidential election recently questioned witness about a supposed meeting between Flynn and several high-ranking Turkish official last December. For these investigators, they were curious about Flynn’s repetitive lobbying on behalf of Turkey.
According to The Wall Street Journal, folk familiar with the investigation believe Mueller is checking out whether or not Flynn discussed in the aforementioned meeting setting up the return to Turkey of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who currently resides in the U.S. Others with inside information have said investigators are examining whether Flynn and other people in authority discussed ways to free a Turkish-Iranian gold trader, Reza Zarrab, who is jailed in the U.S. Zarrab and is facing federal charges that he helped Iran skirt U.S. sanctions.
It seems that there are two standards when it comes down to protection under the law.
There are folk mangled up in treasonous activities chilling in the White House (even though Michael Flynn is gone don’t think he was acting alone) who are given the benefit of the doubt in regards of their innocence and those who are immediately met with the harsh hands of the law. Some people get a slap on the wrist and traffic and vehicular violations are enough to destroy a man’s career and possibly his life.
