Moscow Mike Flynn, Trump’s Failed National Security Advisor Resigns

Out Out Out!!!  LOCK HIM UP!!  Putin’s minion in the White House has resigned after it became clear his head is deeply up Putin’s behind.  The White House was warned that Moscow Mike Flynn was a traitor back in January, but instead of taking action, the incompetent Trump dimwits sat on the information and fired the messenger.

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.

Whatever the case, it is thanks to real reporters that we learned the story behind Moscow Mike and his links with Putin.  Even with those links though, Flynn only really became toast after he lied to the Vice President, Mike Pence.

Even more pathetic is the fact that Moscow Mike Flynn led the charge against Hillary Clinton and her e-mail server–the one nobody cared about the day after the election (it was so important though the day before, right!!??!).  Flynn is a disgrace.

Grab some popcorn, this is only the beginning:

 

Trump’s National Security Advisor is a Russian Spy

The first major scandal of the Trump administration is here. Some may argue that the immigration ban debacle was really the first scandal. That, arguably, is a legal fight. This, however, is a pure scandal with clear corruption, dishonesty and likely spying on the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government. Treason?

National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

It all started when Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had several phone calls with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office. When Flynn was asked if he talked to the ambassador about the sanctions against Russia, he lied through his teeth and said no. Vice President Pence then went on record saying they did not talk about the sanctions.

This week somebody in the intelligence community obviously approached Flynn and told him he was a lying sack of shit. Told him that they knew he talked to the Russian ambassador about Russian sanctions. Told him there was a transcript of his call with the Russian ambassador. Told him he can’t deny it any longer.

 Federal officials who have read the transcript of the call were surprised by Mr. Flynn’s comments, since he would have known that American eavesdroppers closely monitor such calls. They were even more surprised that Mr. Trump’s team publicly denied that the topics of conversation included sanctions.

After that conversation, Flynn started to backtrack, saying he couldn’t “remember” if he talked about the Russians sanctions. He couldn’t be “certain” the topic never came up when he talked repeatedly with the Russian ambassador.  What do you think?

Now Vice President Pence is angry that he stood up for Flynn’s lies.  Pence says “it’s a problem” that Flynn talked about the sanctions to the Russian ambassador even though Flynn originally said he did not talk about the sanctions.  It’s a problem that Pence believed him and stood up for him, even though Flynn was lying and was more interested in helping the Russian government than his own government.

Congressman Eric Swalwell has called for Flynn to be suspended, and Congressman Adam Schiff has called for Flynn to be fired.

Moscow Mike Flynn, the Russian spy Trump put in as the United States National Security advisor, a paid-for shill on the Russian propaganda channel “RT,” and who sat next to Putin at an RT event, who faced consistent concerns that he is just a Russian agent, is Trump’s first scandal.  And everyone, except for Trump, saw it coming.

Trump the Turncoat

Trump showed up at the CIA with a crew of fake supporters to cheer every time he talked.  At the CIA he decided to talk about how tough he was in his “war” with the media.  He decided to make his tough talk right in front of the wall commemorating CIA operatives who died in the fight to protect this country.  But the clapping and laughing you hear during his speech is nothing but an act:

The clapping and laughing you hear in both instances are Trump’s own people. They are sycophants who he brings to cheer him on and make it seem like what he’s saying is being well-received. And it’s working.

And it’s not just domestic spy agencies that are freaking out.  The whole western world is afraid that Trump is a traitor who is more committed to pleasing Putin than protecting his own country:

Unfortunately, newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump is threatening the whole Western intelligence system with his brusque comments about our spies and worrisome ties to Moscow. For the first time, an American president is causing our allies and partners to wonder if Washington can still be trusted.

Meanwhile, US intelligence agencies continue to investigate Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn for his ties to Russia:

U.S. counterintelligence agents have investigated communications that President Donald Trump’s national security adviser had with Russian officials, according to people familiar with the matter.
