Obama’s Ethics Czar Predicts Kushner ‘Will Flip Like A Pancake’ On Trump Obstruction

Following a report about Michael Flynn’s apparent cooperation with the Mueller investigation, Obama’s ethics czar tweeted that Jared Kushner, “will flip like a pancake,” on Trump’s obstruction.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that President Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn might be cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. 
Soon after, former President Obama's 'ethics czar' Norm Eisen tweeted, "BAD NEWS FOR TRUMP. Flynn may or may not have dirt on the Prez, but he surely will roll over on Kush, who will flip like a pancake on daddy-in-law's obstruction."
"They are gonna have to start frisking Jared for a wire in the Oval. Today is Cursegiving not Thanksgiving for POTUS," Eisen further wrote.
The Times' suggestion is based on a notification Flynn's lawyers are said to have sent to Trump's attorneys. 
According to the publication, it indicates that the Flynn legal team would no longer be able to provide them with information about the investigation. 
"Defense lawyers frequently share information during investigations, but they must stop when doing so would pose a conflict of interest. It is unethical for lawyers to work together when one client is cooperating with prosecutors and another is still under investigation," the Times' piece notes.
Just days prior to the Times' report, Vanity Fair revealed that Jared Kushner, an adviser and son-in-law to the president, has been expressing a great deal of concern about the Mueller investigation reaching Trump. 
Notably, Newsweek notes that "Kushner's role as an adviser to the president is reportedly turning sour."
