Flynn K'OED by Russia Connection; Trump Administration in Disarray

Postby fflambeau » Tue Feb 14, 2017 12:00 am

Just a few weeks after being named Donald Trump's National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn has resigned. He lied to his own Vice President about contacts with the Russians and likely illegally took money from them in 2015.

This is a man that Donald Trump put his faith in, and the country's top national security position.

It should be clear by now, even from the staunchest Trump supporters, that their man is simply not up to the job.

Uh-huh.
Because every other thing that should have indicated that hasn't, so surely this will be the one.

I'd argue that one resignation/scandal hardly indicates any particular President is "not up to the job" anyway. Did you feel that way after Obama appointees resigned?

None of Obama's staff resignations were as important, scandalous, or as criminal as Flynn. Also, the Obama list was over a period of eight years, not the first three weeks.

Flynn gave Russians some of our military secrets. The damage has been done. Sounds like treason. Lock him up!

Obo kept his incompetents around. Trump gets rid of them. Strong leader>weak leader.

Trump was warned a month ago by the Justice Department that Flynn had that conversation with Russia and it compromised national security. Yet he still appointed Flynn to be his National Security Advisor. Couple that with the executive order to appoint Steve Bannon to the security council, which Trump later claimed he didn't realize when he signed that order.

Yet GOP members of Congress say no investigation is needed.

How true, how true, look at the Department of Energy

Steven Chu - Nobel Prize Winner - Weak Leader
Ernest Moniz - Nuclear Physicist - Weak Leader

Rick Perry - Dancing With The Stars, Can't Remember the Name of the Department - Strong Leader

Edit, Trump and the GOP want to investigate the leaks that resulted in the public knowing about Flynn's actions.

Unsurprisingly, the Bowling Green truther is lying here. In addition to replacing two physicists (including a Nobel laureate) with someone who thinks the DoE's primary function is overseeing oil, or something, Trump did not get rid of Flynn. Flynn resigned. If it were up to Trump, Flynn, treasonous liar that he is, would still be on the NSC.

When Obama fired staff, he was "throwing them under the bus."

Trumpie got a big bus.

You don't have a smidgen of evidence that Flynn gave any secrets to anyone. Certainly not in your link.

Well, maybe we ought to have an investigation. You know, like we did for that Benghazi thing.

Flynn worked for Obo several times. Trump probably shouldn't have trusted a Democrat.

Ned and Roy are fighting a losing rear guard action. Let's have a complete investigation to find out the truth. This will be a lot more explosive than Benghazi.

What did Trump know and when did he know it?

Let me get this straight, beta-dog: president Obama kept him in line, but Trump couldn't even make it to inauguration day without a fuckup?

Trump’s national security adviser shared secrets without permission, files show
https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/na ... 0227b62b75

"A secret U.S. military investigation in 2010 determined that Michael T. Flynn, the retired Army general tapped to serve as national security adviser in the Trump White House, “inappropriately shared” classified information with foreign military officers in Afghanistan, newly released documents show."

White House was warned Flynn could be blackmailed by Russia
