BREAKING: National Security Advisor Flynn Resigns

  • 21 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

News breaking everywhere…and it could be just the tip of the iceberg. From the Washington Post:

BREAKING: Michael Flynn, Trump’s embattled national security adviser, is resigning amid controversy over communication with Russian ambassador. 

The acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said.

  1. I saw "the E word" about this story somewhere online this morning, so I knew he'd be gone by nightfall. It never fails: Controversial, Beleaguered, Embattled, GONE!

  2. The question now is what did Trump know and when did he know it.  It seems far fetched that Flynn would call the Russian ambassador out of the blue on the day that sanctions were announced without consulting with his boss about what to say.  If it was a Democratic Administration, the investigative committees would already be queued up.  Will be interesting to see if Republicans try to sweep this under the rug without a subpoena to Flynn to find out why he made the call and on behalf of whom.

    1. There's been so much furious sweeping already that there's a giant cloud of dust obscuring a body of evidence about the Putin/Russia connection to Trump and his entire team. Much more is known, and much more will come out. The GOP can't sweep it all away. This was only the blatantly obvious tip of the iceberg.

      1. Caught Matt Lauers interview with SmellyAnn this morning.  When Matt challenged her on her timeline and how Trump knew all of this 30 days ago she paused, almost as if she intended to say 'alternative facts'.  She composed herself and said, 'Matt, that's one person's view of the situation.'.  

        1. According to SmellyAnn, Flynn's sin wasn't that he was an obvious security risk and potentially a blackmail subject (he was attending top secret meetings yesterday!  He had Trump full confidence yesterday!), it was that he embarrassed Pence and therefore Trump.  Sad!

          But on Tuesday, Conway, who had claimed just hours before his resignation that the White House had “full confidence” in Flynn, repeatedly could not say why the administration waited to act.

          On NBC’s “Today” show, the White House counselor claimed that “the situation had become unsustainable” after Flynn misled Pence.

          “But the fact is, General Flynn continued in that position and was in the presidential daily briefings, as part of the leader calls, as recently as yesterday,” Conway said.

  3. Trump will let nothing get in the way of the deal between Exxon/Mobil and Rosneft. Russian financial recovery and future European hegemony depend on this "drill the Arctic, malish, drill the Arctic" plan Putin is driving.

    $500,000,000,000 is a lot of money…

    Where is Paul Manafort?
