Disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has kept quiet since copping a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in December. If criminals thought that meant they could get away with things because the smartest detective in the world was sidelined, bad news: although Flynn is down, the Flynn family is not out.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
