Rumor Mill: Someone On Mueller's Team Has Flipped and Is Now Cooperating With Durham

Just a rumor, so don't let yourself get excited. I'm sure they will disappoint us.

I don't know who John Basham is, or what connections he has.

His Twitter bio says this:

@JohnBasham Meteorologist, AI Developer, @USArmy Retired, #IC, #SIGINT, Retired LEO, Former Elected Official, #OSINT #WX #AI #ML Fort Worth, TXJoined August 2009

I can't verify much of that, but I'm not much of a researcher. If it's not on pages 1 to 3 of google returns, I don't know about it.

There does seem to be a John Basham who was formerly the mayor pro-tem of Reno.

Anyway, here is what he claims:


RUMINT: Talk From Many DC Lawyers Saying One Of Special Counsel Robert #Mueller's Prosecutors Has "FLIPPED" & Is Now Cooperating With US Attorney John #Durham's Investigation Into The Origins Of #RussiaCollusion Investigation. A Single Name Is Being Repeated...Developing...

Former cop John Cardillo says he's also heard something big:

Can't say why without betraying a confidence, but I just had a BIG restoration of faith moment in AG Barr and Durham.

Shipwreckedcrew can't confirm these rumors, but he does have an interesting theory that makes sense:

This rumor follows on the heels of the release last week of records showing several members of the Special Counsel's Office "wiped" their SCO-issued cell phones clean on one or more occasions.


It cannot be overlooked that, while most of the more senior DOJ "veterans" on the SCO went to lucrative careers in private practice after departing, several of the younger members of the SCO returned to positions in the Department of Justice.

Also, only those employed by the government can be demanded to answer questions, short of being hailed into court.

That means they have been subject to potential investigation by internal DOJ disciplinary offices like the Inspector General or Office of Professional Responsibility. Issues like "wiping" their SCO- issued phones without authorization, likely in violation of DOJ policy, might not mean much to Andrew Weissmann and Jeannie Rhee, but for younger attorneys still in DOJ like Brandon Van Grack, Aaron Zelinsky, and Adam Jed, their DOJ careers might hang in the balance -- and potentially their licenses to practice law. It is possible they were directed or encouraged to take some actions they now regret, or for which they are now vulnerable to leverage by Durham or other government investigators.

Shipwreckedcrew also discusses the possible tell of Andrew Weismann going into "agitation overdrive" when investigators started looking into the Flynn set-up.

My recommended course of action with this tip is to have a low level of optimism about it and then, when it doesn't pan out, absolutely beat the shit out of Jack Straw in the comments.
