Flynn resigns as Trump’s national security adviser; Petraeus among possible replacements

crew-2231211If this wasn’t true and it certainly is, it would seem like the progressive hit squad will not stop at anything or with anyone to muck up President Trump’s agenda.

 

 

Mr. Flynn is an honorable man and did what he thought would be the right thing at the time. Is former CIA Director and General Patreaus who committed a bigger faux pax seriously going to be considered for the position? Between leaks from the media and leaks from the holdovers from the Obama administration, who do we trust?

Just three weeks into the Trump administration, Michael Flynn has resigned as national security adviser.

Mr. Flynn issued a statement Monday night announcing that he would leave the post over having misled Vice President Mike Pence about having spoken to Russian officials about U.S. sanctions during the transition period.

He acknowledged holding “numerous phone calls with foreign counterparts” as transition officials often do.

Petraeus pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for allowing the classified material to be given to his lady friend, Paula Broadwell which was found on her computer. (Source)

 “Unfortunately because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador,” he said, going on to apologize to Mr. Pence and President Trump.

“I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation,” he said.

Mr. Pence, apparently relying on Mr. Flynn’s account of the conversation, issued a public denial of reports that Mr. Flynn had discussed the sanctions imposed on the Kremlin by the outgoing Obama administration over Moscow’s efforts to influence the U.S. election in Mr. Trump’s favor.

 But Mr. Flynn later told White House officials the issue of sanctions may have come up.

According to the Associated Press and other news outlets, the Justice Department had warned the White House weeks ago about Mr. Flynn potentially having been compromised by the Russians.

His involvement with the Kremlin-owned Russia Today news outlet was also reportedly under investigation by the U.S. military.

CNN reporter Gloria Borger said on the air, citing “an administration source” that this “flood of information” in recent days meant that “in the end, the dam burst” and that Mr. Trump’s famous loyalty to supporters was not enough.

She said that Mr. Trump “hung in there, but [Mr. Flynn] resigned.

Donald Trump, aside from on ‘The Apprentice’ doesn’t really like to fire people,” especially loyalists, she said.Retired Gen. Keith Kellogg, a national-security official with the Trump transition team, is acting as national security adviser for now and also is a candidate for the permanent post, CNN reported.

  3. Wasn’t it Petraus who flew an “empty chair” out of the AF’ plane? Personally? I think it was that vs. a fling with some woman. Sorry, I can’t remember her name.

  4. The mud slinging in the Corrupt Government is really operating at a high level.

    The next National Security Adviser will be on notice to be very careful as to who he trusts.

    Of course, the source of the CNN information needs to be located and dealt with.

    Some of this so-called dirt is simply spin om an event. How the CNN people got access to conversations between Flynn will be an interesting disclosure.

  5. The U. S.Military is governed by a Code of Honor. This Code is most likely what motivated General Flynn to resign.

    The Same Code motivated General Petraeus to plead guilty to his mistake, which was extremely minor. Most likely Gen Petraeus will not accept any position in Government in the future.

    The non-Military folks will not be able to fully the Military Code of Honor. The various Military Academy Graduates are the most bound by their oath to this Code of Honor.

    The assholes inn the MSM (main stream media) have no such HONOR and feel compelled

    Trump has a very big job ahead to clean out the swamp in Government and will need to alert all of his staff. to assassinate the character of America’s Military leaders. HOW SAD!

  6. Let’s get real here….it boils down to former FBI Sally Yates and her Obama minions who went rogue and had investigations on all of Trumps folks…this goes deep, friend….very deep….these folks need to be bought up on charges of treason and this de facto/ de jure government and all its little secrets has to go—DRAIN THE SWAMP will never happen thanks to all this. Trump has called it right again, this comes from the inside, he has been saying this along…shameful—I bet it goes all the way to congress/senate and beyond…say, Soros. It def. goes to Clinton who was receiving the information.

    Petraeus can’t get the job—doesn’t he still have a charge against him? Gosh, I hope he doesn’t get the job–he’s part of the problem…just saying.

    This is a sad, sad world we live in where the government has gone rogue and going against the president.
