So after Michael Flynn called a DOD official to try to enlist his help overturning the election, Powell called to say that CIA chief Gina Haspel had been injured in a secret mission to retrieve an election server.

Jonathan Karl may well be the Bob Woodward for a new generation. As a lifelong GOP operative, and now a professional tv-news ‘talent’, he’s got the skills and the social network to reassure the Right People that all is indeed for the best in this best of all possible worlds: The occasional KKKrazy may mar the unruffled surface of proper Republican political control, but never for long enough that the Democrats will be able to weaponize them.
A rumor spread on the right after the election, from QAnon to Louie Gohmert, that the CIA and US soldiers had been in some sort of gunfight in Germany over election fraud. Apparently Sidney Powell tried to get the Trump administration to take action on it. https://t.co/HvozP2jpAx

Troutmouth Bob’s probably jealous — he had to make do with minor zealots like Al Haig embarrassing themselves behind closed doors, while JonKarl gets Mike Flynn’s flagrant public breakdown…
Flynn called DoD official Ezra Cohen and pressured him to help seize ballots and take extraordinary measures to overturn the election, per @jonkarl
"Sir, the election is over," Cohen told Flynn
Flynn replied: “This is not over! Don't be a quitter!"https://t.co/Y6MxY1Ov1I

Karl’s book is remarkably clear even for this genre in who talked to him to salvage their reputations. https://t.co/X03O3L8gGh

This is what I mean. Brain-poisoned by NCIS marathons and awful Oliver North books.
So much so that a member of Trump's legal team really thought that senior political appointees go out and raid warehouses in harries stance. https://t.co/6flVAfh0vr
