BREAKING NEWS: House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Demands Top Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn Testify Before Congress in 16 Days; Rep. Krishnamoorthi Says HPSCI to Assess "Counterintelligence Risks" Posed by Trump/Trump Campaign  https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/09/adam-schiff-michael-flynn-1486508 

NOTE/ My book Proof of Conspiracy focuses on *precisely the topic* and *precisely the Trump campaign figures* Congress is now looking at. I know members and staffers of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence follow this feed—they now *must* read Proof of Conspiracy.

NOTE2/ If you want to prepare yourself for the sharp turn toward Middle Eastern politics that U.S. national security debates are about to take, this is a good starting point, whether you're in Congress or just a voter trying to stay informed about our ongoing national emergency:

NOTE3/ Flynn's lawyer has hidden from subpoena service and is already promising that Flynn will make a fraudulent Fifth Amendment invocation to Congress—fraudulent because he already cut a deal and pleaded guilty, so he no longer can invoke the Fifth Amendment as to those matters

NOTE4/ Flynn's lawyer is, like Joe DiGenova, hardly a lawyer at all—more properly stated she's a party operative whose statements about Mueller are *insane*. She backs the conspiracy theory that Manafort's known collusion with Kremlin agents was "made up."  https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/02/25/former_federal_prosecutor_sidney_powell_the_entire_russia_collusion_narrative_was_made_up.html 

NOTE5/ Powell is a dangerous radical who knows full well her client and his son secretly met Russia's ambassador to the U.S. at his house in DC in December 2015, just days before meeting with Putin—with both meetings on the subject of Trump striking a "grand bargain" with Russia.
