Aww! White House Plans To Attack Mike Flynn As A Liar

And they were such good friends!

If this wasn't so important, it would be kind of a hoot: Trump's lawyers actually believe Mike Flynn has no actual dirt on Trump -- because Trump assured them! And now they're starting a campaign to attack Flynn as a liar!

Trump, putting his word up against anyone's.

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.

The approach would mark a sharp break from Trump’s previously sympathetic posture toward Flynn, whom he called a “wonderful man” when Flynn was ousted from the White House in February. Earlier this month, the president did not rule out a possible pardon for Flynn, who is cooperating with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Attorneys for Trump and his top advisers have privately expressed confidence that Flynn does not have any evidence that could implicate the president or his White House team. But since Flynn’s cooperation agreement with prosecutors was made public earlier this month, the administration has been strategizing how to neutralize him in case the former national security adviser does make any claims.

It seems to me that attacking someone who's testifying against you as untrue indicates you have something to hide. Robert Mueller will probably assume the same.
