-I've continued to be surprised at the relative silence on the recent Flynn scandal. As I said in one of my earlier posts, can you imagine the what would be happening if this involved Democrats? Nevertheless, there has been some increase in pressure. Among the recent events:
Senator Harkin has asked for more information from Flynn, specifically records of correspondence with Schaumber.
-Rep. Cummings has requested that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee interview and collect records from Kirsanow and Schaumber.
-Al Kamen wonders if the president now has buyer's remorse.
-Flynn hired Glenn Fine, the former Dept. of Justice IG, to represent him. Fine is a heavy-hitter, so this matter may go on for a while.
