Well, this escalated quickly.
Michael Crowley of Politico wonders if former national security adviser Michael Flynn will turn traitor now that he’s out of his White House job:
Flynn learned a lot of deep US secrets. Now he’s bitter, out of work, and not very employable. Hope someone's keeping a close eye on him.

Many other journalists, etc., were quick to endorse Crowley’s speculation.

That Flynn would end up on RT was a popular theory, too.
Josh Barro, Business Insider:
Not very employable? He'll soon be hosting a show on RT with Jill Stein! https://t.co/vfO3m2euaS
