This whole piece is delusional spin. Flynn’s plea is for lying to the FBI about activities after the election. This undermines the Russia-gate narrative about collusion to tamper with the election. The activities Flynn lied about were diplomatic initiatives that are not illegal. Finally, Flynn pled guilty to lying, making his uncorroborated testimony useless. All this undermines the case for obstruction. The quote from the professor is full of “If….”. It effectively negates the headline’s assertion that the plea helps the case of obstruction. It doesn’t.
