Prepare to tap the strategic popcorn reserves and open the sluice gates at the champagne reservoir, friends! Via valued commenter Yarrow in the thread downstairs, this video clip is the most tick-tockiest of motherfuckers:
JUST IN: @BrianRoss on @ABC News Special Report: Michael Flynn promised "full cooperation to the Mueller team" and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Donald Trump "directed him to make contact with the Russians." https://t.co/aiagnvr8eS pic.twitter.com/r8u2LWAd0O

In case you can’t listen, a hastily transcribed excerpt:
“He [Flynn] has promised full cooperation to the Mueller team. He is prepared to testify, according to a confidant, against President Trump, against members of the Trump family and against others in the White House. He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate, Donald Trump, ordered him and directed him to make contacts with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.
“Flynn made the decision to cooperate only in the last 24 hours; he is distraught about the decision but feels he’s doing the right thing for his country. He as facing huge legal bills of more than a million dollars and that finally, he had to do this for that reason. He expects to put his house on the market; he is facing serious financial problems.”
Anchors on the cable networks are openly speculating about “the survival of the Trump presidency.” Too soon to count chickens. Call your senators about the goddamned tax bill.
But stop and savor this today, dear jackals, wherever you are. We’ve been on a steady diet of shit sandwiches for more than a year now. Popcorn and champers all around.
