Michael Flynn Pleading The Fifth Amendment Is Funny, Considering How He And Trump Felt About That Last Year…

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

Well, shit.

If the investigation into Donald Trump does yield new corruption (you know, in addition to all the obstruction of justice), it won't be from the testimony of Michael Flynn.

The short-term national security adviser who lied about his communications with Russia during Trump's transition has just stalled his own investigation by announcing he will plead the fifth amendment.

Flynn's attorneys wrote a letter to the Senate intelligence committee that seems to claim the move is justified not because he's guilty but because he's worried about being prosecuted anyway amid the "escalating public frenzy against him."

So nothing in his documents is evidence of any crime, but it all makes him look more guilty? Hmm…

Finally, right??

In a move surprising no one, Huma Abedin has officially filed for divorce from Anthony Weiner.

It actually took until August of last year for Hillary Clinton's right hand woman to separate herself from her scandalous man, but according to TMZ, the divorce is moving ahead as docs were filed in NYC on Friday.

The news comes just hours after Weiner pleaded guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor after being caught sexting a 15-year-old girl. Prosecutors are asking for 21-27 months in prison.

But who knows? Maybe the timing is just a coincidence.

So. Much. Drama!

It's Robin Thicke and Brennan Thicke vs. Tanya Callau!

In case you haven't been keeping up, two of Alan Thicke's sons are going up against the late actor's widow over his large estate. In fact, they even filed legal docs claiming she was threatening to go to tabloids and create bad press.

The latest development? Tanya claims the singer and his brother are putting up such a fight because she won't let them have a pot farm on their dad's Santa Barbara ranch!!

Wow!

According to TMZ, her lawyer Adam Streisand says Robin and Brennan's claims about tabloid threats are fake, AND adds his client has no issue with Alan's prenup. Tanya gets 25% of the ranch, along with a trust which affords her to live her life out on the property.

Additionally, the widow feels Alan's sons are dishonoring the late star with this pot farm.

Shots fired!

We can only imagine how the two will respond to her, especially as they've painted her to be a gold digger.

What do U think about all this messy family drama??
