Two weeks ago, the dots were connected of the publicly available evidence and realized that former White House Chief of staff Reince Priebus and the current White House Counsel Don McGahn had both betrayed Donald Trump in the Russia investigation. Now the New York Times has released a new bombshell story which, among many other things, proves that Priebus and McGahn did indeed betray Trump.
The stunning new expose from the NY Times reveals that Reince Priebus was taking extensive notes during his entire time in the White House. This is revelatory. It has long been known that White House Press Secretary was taking detailed notes for the entire length of his tenure, but this was simply his custom at every political job he’s ever worked, suggesting Spicer was naively doing this without realizing he was creating a trail of evidence. Priebus is politically savvy enough to be aware that he was setting himself up as an eventual key witness by recording those notes, meaning that he knew he would eventually need to get off the hook for Trump’s crimes. More importantly, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller now has Priebus’ notes.
This means, without a doubt, that Priebus has flipped. It doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s cut a formal plea deal. Although Priebus conspired to obstruct justice simply by talking about the Trump-Russia cover-up with Donald Trump, it may be that Mueller agreed not to charge him at all in return for his cooperation. Either way, we know that Priebus has flipped because he handed over his notes. It gets better.
Priebus and Don McGahn still have the same lawyer in the Russia scandal. If one flipped and the other didn’t, the lawyer could no longer represent them both. Since we know Priebus has flipped, we also know McGahn has flipped. The same NY Times story uncovers that one of Don McGahn’s deputies went to great lengths to mislead Trump, in the hope of stopping Trump from committing more obstruction of justice. These details could only have come from McGahn, and the fact that they’re even being reported means that McGahn gave them to Mueller. This confirms that McGahn has indeed flipped.
This leaves us with many remarkable conclusions. Don McGahn is still the White House Counsel despite having betrayed Donald Trump weeks or months ago. Reince Priebus was aware from the beginning of Trump’s presidency that he’d one day need notes to get himself out of trouble from the obstruction crimes that he foresaw Trump would commit. This also means that Sean Spicer, who was voluntarily interviewed by Robert Mueller the week that Priebus also did, has probably also betrayed Trump as well.
