National Security Adviser Flynn Resigns Over Russian Contacts

Share
Flynn

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn resigned late on Monday under scrutiny over whether he discussed the possibility of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia before Trump took office.

Flynn submitted his resignation hours after Trump said through a spokesman that he was reviewing the situation and talking to Vice President Mike Pence. Flynn had promised Pence he had not discussed sanctions with the Russians but it was later discovered that the subject had come up.

“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. I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology,” Flynn said in his resignation letter.

Retired General Keith Kellogg, who has been chief of staff of the White House National Security Council, was named the acting national security adviser while Trump determines who should fill the position.

Retired General David Petraeus, a former CIA director, is under consideration for the position, a White House official said.

Flynn’s resignation came after it was reported that the Justice Department warned the White House weeks ago that Flynn could be vulnerable to blackmail for contacts with Russian officials before Trump took power on Jan. 20.

A U.S. official confirmed a Washington Post report that Sally Yates, the then-acting U.S. attorney general, told the White House late last month that she believed Flynn had misled them about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

She said Flynn might have put himself into a compromising position, possibly leaving himself vulnerable to blackmail, the official said. Yates was later fired for opposing Trump’s temporary entry ban for people from seven mostly Muslim nations.

Flynn, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, was an early supporter of Trump and shares his interest in shaking up the establishment in Washington. He has frequently raised eyebrows among Washington’s foreign policy establishment for trying to persuade Trump to warm up U.S. relations with Russia.

    Worse news for this traitor: the Army is apparently investigating him for payments from the Russians, and – as a flag officer – he’s covered by the UCMJ. None of Trump’s sycophants – not even Sessions the fake AG – has the power to interfere with this unless the CAAF lets them, and the death penalty is a distinct possibility.

      Don’t get me wrong, it’s very unlikely this will end with a firing squad – but I love watching these Nazi bastards squirm when they suddenly realize they are actually liable for their treason.

        GM Helpy, I’m not sure treason and the death penalty are in play. Really depends on the evidence. Now we can talk about the Logan Act and his pension may well be at risk.

        Equally funny is that they’re considering Dave Petraeus for his replacement. You remember him? The guy who had to resign as head of CIA because he was feeding classified documents to his mistress so she could use them in writing about him?

        I’m beginning to relax. Trump and his crew are so incompetent they may not be able to do near the damage I was expecting.

          Section 94 (mutiny/sedition), 104 (aiding the enemy), and 106 (espionage) of the UMCJ all seem applicable and all potentially carry the death penalty, even when the nation isn’t at war.

          I know it won’t happen – they haven’t executed anyone for nearly 60 years – but by God I want that sleazy son of a … gun … to know he has it hanging over his head.

            But telling the Russians that Trump didn’t like the sanctions President Obama imposed because the Russians were helping the Trump campaign; strikes me as hardly surprising.

            But let’s see where the evidence leads. That is, if Jefferson Beauregard Sessions will follow it.

            Is/was Flynn active duty? Does the UMCJ apply to retired?

            I recall watching Trump in one of his late October campaign rallies stating that he planned to revoke the Russian sanctions.

            Now that Flynn is no longer a member of the Executive branch and just an ordinary citizen, he can be subpoenaed.

            It looks as if the Republicans are maintaining silence while they see how far to the top and their party the complicity goes.

            This mess has all the markings of the same type of cover up most of us witnessed in WaterGate.

            Exactly so Ms. E.

            Trump’s on record, or at least as on record as he gets, saying he’ll remove the sanctions. Later, Flynn states that Trump plans to revoke the sanctions. I’m having trouble seeing how this supports any death penalty level prosecution.

            As for when Trump knew? Does anything before Jan. 20 count? Again, I’m having trouble seeing this rise to Watergate levels.

            This article’s headline is misleading according to the morning news. Flynn resigned because he’d misled the VP on the nature of the call.

            Flynn is gone. That’s enough win for one day.

      Flynn was tied to the RT (Russian TV Network) and spent time in Russia in 2013. Something went very wrong with Flynn when President Obama didn’t add him to his cabinet in an official capacity. No one should be surprised. Flynn, like Trump, Bannon, McConnell, Ryan and Priebus are micro controllers who must always be obeyed or ELSE!

      For Trump, absolute obedience in the threat of being fired might work in the Trump Organization. But, it does not work in government.

      What Americans are seeing first hand now is the difference between CEOship and LEADERSHIP. Trump is not a leader. If those creepy maggots he has surrounded himself with are an example of those he trusts, then why are there more leaks between the maggots?

      In true corporate power struggles, no one trusts anyone. That doesn’t happen in government due to the need for a face of support and unity to the public. In corporations, it is ONLY the guy at the top who determines corporate image and it has little national security risk to the public.

    Another lovely mess we have on our hands, except this one has possible dire or worse consequences in the days to come.
    Had Donald been more prone to think with foresight, and less rash to promote himself, as he is wont to do at the drop of a hat, he could have avoided this extra bit of drama and embarrassment. But noooo—he had to bull his way forward.

    As least Flynn had a modicum of conscience left to be able to see the writing on the wall. Too bad T. Rex, Price, and others no longer have a conscience. Donald knows how to pick the toxic elements in American society at a fatal glance, and enlist them into his circle of friends that they may further enrich themselves.

      For me, it is beginning to look as if Putin is on the hunt for any top US miltiary who doesn’t get a cabinet position. Remember that is exactly what happened with the US General who didn’t get a job with President Obama and defected. One of the defecters is now in a Russian mental institution and now that they are done with the too visible Snowden, he is in a big time hurry to get out of Russia for fear of ending up in the same situation.

      So when Trump makes light of “talking to Putin” or Kim Jung Un of North Korea, Trump is proving he takes no real sense of concern for national security, the ramifications of which can waylay the US into the hands of either Russia, China or North Korea. The art of the deal is not working and the right wing and GOP are uncharacteristically silent.

    As I posted numerous times over the past three months, What did Trump know and WHEN did he know it? No matter how else you slice this loaf of BS, it still goes right to the top. Putin and Trump. Trump and Putin. Putin and Trump. Trump and Putin. Ask the question: What was the real reason Trump fired Sally Yates? Was it really because she defied him and refused to condone the travel ban? OR….Was it because Trump saw Yates as a threat to his cover up?

    Remember? It was Sally Yates and Clapper who BOTH warned Trump before he was sworn in that they thought Flynn was “compromised.” They warned Trump a 2nd time in January and he chose to ignore it. So, the question now is “What did Trump know from his own hand picked National Security Adviser, Flynn and when did he know it?

    While Conway plays the role of “top adviser,” she gives the public information she knows is “compromised” as does Spicer and Bannon. But, in the shadows is one RNC chairman who holds a “insider” political patronage job to Trump that Trump hoped would keep Rience Priebus under Trump’s watchful eye shoudl Priebus decide that the “Russian Connection” was a tad too uncomfortable for the former RNC Chairman.

    Trump himself admitted in a tweet not a month ago that he and Putin “discussed” stopping cyber attacks. Two weeks later, Trump was again on the phone with his beloved Putin only time, Trump made sure the calls were placed with extreme security. Why?

    Yeesh. If only I wrote in the espionage genre. You just can’t make this stuff up.

      Does anyone think it’s a “coincidence” that THREE of Trump’s campaign/administration advisors have had to distance themselves from Trump because of collusion with Russia? Manafort, Page, Flynn. Trump is probably scrambling to find someone to be his liaison with Putin. Tillerson??

        Amen to that! One of the right winger Republican strategists last night on CNN said that Tillerson is a “top choice” made by Trump.

        No matter what the GOP does or says, this time they are far more implicated in the rigging of an election than just hanging chads, burglarizing the WaterGate Hotel or using the Electoral College to win elections.

        The sad thing is the appearance this makes to the rest of the world. Already the Iranians are saying the US is doing exactly what they knew we would do…renege on the Iranian deal. The Chinese are already wary of Trump’s promises they know he never keeps. The Mexicans are protesting the constant slamming of their country by Trump and it is only a matter of time before Trump goes after Canada who he seems unable to admit is also, like Mexico part of NAFTA.

        Trump is slime with a capital “S”. Anyone who lived in the NY/NJ Metro area knew for 3 or more decades what a mental defective he really is. This time, he is walking into his own cesspool.

            I so agree! Here in NJ, we know Trump as a slimeball who firmly believe, “Everyone and everything has a price…if you are willing to pay it.”

            Trump supporters wonder at my loathing of this guy. It began with huge battles over private properties he paid Atlantic City officials to zone as “blighted areas” so he could buy the properties and build 2 casinos. Some of those officials went to jail or got huge fines for that little art of the deal.

            Then, when Trump’s 2 casinos opened, he hired mainly immigrants for maids, bus boys and landscapers, many were undocumented and yet not one word of this has ever been mentioned.

            Yet, his most frequent high rollers were Middle Eastern Muslims, mostly Saudis, he flew in on his private helicopter to launder money to terrorists in the Taj Mahal as I’ve posted numerous times. Few of us in Central NJ missed the sight of that big grey helicopter with the huge letters TRUMP on it flying those high rollers to his casinos on a regular basis. So regularly, he conned the then NJ governor into allowing him to buy part of the Steel Pier to use for his landing pad.

            Strike Three for Trump came when he got a flood of fines he never expected and the only way he could pay them off was to close his 2 casinos and fire all 4400 plus employees and contractors.

            The righties love to claim that when a SO CALLED billionaire goes bankrupt they don’t dump that on the state in which their businesses are located. Not True.

            The two books, that I read, shows he never paid the contract price for anything. He had an enormous loan for the Taj Mahal. The bank demanded payment. His daddy gave him less than the payment due and the two of them went to the bank and negotiated the bank accepting the amount tendered. The bank did. The owner of the music store, who contracted with the dump for $100,000 worth of pianos, was paid 75 cents on the dollar. While he was taking out bankruptcy, he was bringing high rollers from Japan and the Mideast, by helicopter, to be wined and dined and comped for their rooms. He is who the Republicans are.

            That’s true. There are about a half dozen contractors Trump stiffed who built his casinos. To get out of paying them as he did those 4400 employees, he claimed the contractors’ work was all “substandard.”

        Yes, Tillerson–because the reason for lifting the sanctions is to free up land Exon cannot drill otherwise: The largest percentage (65%) of Exon’s as yet untapped property is in Russia. This is all about Trump and his 1% of 1% cronies cashing in on fossil fuel investments before climate change catches up with them. The Oroville Dam infrastructure failure is another reason that in pillaging fossil fuel resources time is of the essence if these billionaires are to grab and shelter their wealth. Putin is one of these cronies.

          Maybe it’s because Trump’s home base has always been not more than 45 minutes away but whenever I listen to a word out of his mouth, it is always about some “deal” or some type of “business.”

          Is government a business now? On our tax dollars? What the Republican Party has stated over and over in support of Trump is that he has carte blanche as a member of the executive branch of government to do just as he pleases.

          Oh how these worms manage to turn from refusing to allow Obama the same privileges.

          I don’t know who in the GOP back room EVER gave their presidents the idea they and ONLY they have what GWB called “extraordinary executive privilege” but is has back fired on the GOP until you have to wonder when they will realize their strategies of micro control isn’t working.

            Fresh out of the last Spicer news (I mean “lies”) conference, I can hardly get the language on straight any more, I feel so lied to by the new Trump administration, top to bottom. Sometimes I think the GOP sense of entitlement is the privilege of getting away with lying, no matter how big or improbable the lie. And you are right, EW: If you are going to lie big time, you have to micro control things or the lie will be exposed. If the sink hole in the Oroville Dam spillway needs to be fixed, it is either fixed or it, eventually, gives way. I think we are going to be witness to something pretty terrible. The longer the GOP refuses to deal with the sink hole in the spillway, the worse it will be for them. Hard as it is to tolerate this steady diet of lies from the White House, we are needed to stand as witness to the accumulation.

      You can bet it will be Conway. She is a fly in Trump’s oinment. She consistently speaks out of turn FOR him as if she has inside information. She did this very thing yesterday.

      When it was apparent that Flynn was nabbed, Conway told MSNBC that “the president fully supports Flynn.” Indeed! One Russian traitor must always support another. Except…it wasn’t true. Not three hours later, Trump tweeted that he hadn’t made a decision regarding Flynn.

      Here is the real deal. If Trump didn’t support Flynn, Trump knew it would open a HUGE can of worms that he hoped would never be opened. If he supported Flynn, that made Pence the liar who publicly stated that Flynn never had any conversations about sanctions with Putin. You can fire a National Security advisor. You can’t fire a VP.

            The SC nominee has yet to be installed. That’s why the Dems are delaying the nomination procedures. In reality, the Dems owe the GOP delays. The GOP outright refused President Obama his right to place a SC nominee knowing full well their refusal gave them huge advantage.

            But and here is the but. How was the Republican Party so CERTAIN back in autumn 2016 there be would a Republican SC nominee? This is how the GOP indicts themselves for rigging the election. They had to feel absolutely certain they’d have a GOP president come January 2017 and therefore, a SC appointment.

            That certain IS the GOP indictment of how they forced the election in their favor. Sorry..but election fraud is election fraud. It about party. It is about the Constitutional right to secure our votes for the candidate WE, not the GOP wants.

        Right now, their Republican strategists are in a huddle trying to figure out how to fix it so the GOP looks innocent of any complicity. Pretty hard to do when they were so hot to allow Trump to run from their party.

            For Flynn and the other military defector, it came down to the lure of crossing over from the military hierarchy to the government hierarchy. This should be a red flag to all Americans. If government has now become so politically ideologized as to attract the military who are trained to operate without political ideology for the sake of the protection of their country and Putin is scooping up generals who turn their backs on the US out of spite, this is a serious offense.

    Undermining a standing administration with an aggressive adversary caught red-handed with military destabilization in Ukraine, annexation of Crimea, then disrupting US elections is not grounds for incarceration – but treason. Olly North thought he knew better than those around him and his arrogance resulted in scandal and disruption. Trump should have known better – but then he always was a sucker for a pretty face in a neat uniform.

    Flynn, a so-called general, was the big, tough alpha male at those Trumpf rallies, leading the Nazi supporters in chants of “lock her up.” In his resignation letter, we see the real coward that Flynn is by his choice of the words “inadvertent and incomplete information,” euphemisms for lies. If this Flynn is representative of our military top brass, we are in big trouble as far as loyalty to America. Lastly, why is Flynn so angry when he has had all the advantages of a flag officer–subsidized health care, housing payments, automatic salutes, etc.? Guess what, Flynn, we the civilian public do not salute you nor admire you. You belong in prison.

    Down the road, trump will be firing judges. The judicial system will become afraid and go the way of the Republican legislators who feared the t-party. Flynn is not a nice person, but look at what can happen.

      Ida, The Judiciary is where Trump’s U.S.S. Trumptanic goes down. There is NO judge or lawyer willing to be disbarred from practicing law for Trump. Think about it. They spend years studying for legal exams, as legal interns and then destroy a chance to remain a licensed member of the bar or a job on the bench? Not going to happen. Trump doesn’t have the kind of money it would take to bribe the entire Judiciary.

    A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question.

    The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped centimeters from a shop window.

    For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, “Look mate, don’t ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!”

    The passenger apologized and said, “I didn’t realize that a little tap would scare you so much.”

    The driver replied, “Sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver – I’ve been driving a funeral van for the last 25 years”.

      Cowards who cannot accept responsibility always use others to make comparison to lessen their guilt.

      The difference is that if you are a Republican conservative, you conserve what remains of your dignity and self-respect in the face of the malignant cancer of powermongering schemes by always placing floodlights on anyone and everyone else.

      The rat’s in the Trump administration are all corpies. They don’t trust each other and can’t ever. How can they get to their hero if they don’t slice and dice each other?

          The worst part of this? Trump is a cancer who has metasicized to the degree where he and Flynn have now dirtied our military. Flynn’s military record is juxtaposed to his rants about Hillary Clinton on behalf of Trump. Remember when Flynn stood up in front of the mindless Trump supporters and said, “If I committed the crimes SHE has…” and “Lock her up!”

          If you didn’t know better, you’d swear the time Flynn spent in Russia back in 2013 was in some bizarre Russian brain washing scheme. How does a decorated military general like Flynn go from what we all know and honor in our military to a mindless Trump robot? And all because President Obama didn’t select him for a position in his cabinet?

          The Trump cancer always selects ONLY those he knows are most vulnerable. Ergo the freak show around him.

Flynn should be jailed with the DUMPSTER but more then likely DONNY DUMP would pardon Flynn to keep him quiet . but in time the news would say Flynn had killed himself and left a note . only to find out the note was in DONNY DUMPS hand writing and Flynn was murdered . and the DUMPSTER had PUTTHEAD mail him a how to do it book . think about it what did Flynn himself have to gain by doing all this for himself ? I see it that all the immigration bull was the DUMPSTERS smoke screen to cover up all of Flynn’s doing .///// and today one has to ask OK who can we get that we can trust to do any investigation’s the GOP gang of pinheads ? no thy are too busy getting guns in the mentally ill hands . how about the FBI ? yes COMA COMEY can be trusted right ? NOT ! he is another one for PUTTHEADS how to do it book . seems that the DONNY DUMP house is a cancer that is spreading through out the country and the world . if one looks at it all it seems like a playbook from Vince McMahon WWE . with all the drama and bull .and while not being as busy as thy can be the GOP gang of pinheads are blocking the very way the people can see the DONNY DUMP’S taxes . there is a way but thy are blocking it . thy set back and say (DITCH MCCONNELL ) the people have spoken and this is what the people want . because the DUMPSTER is in the house . hey DITCH MCCONNELL the people did speak and about 3 million more of us voted against the DUMPSTER . every thing the GOP gang of pinheads do is to stop and block any and every thing the people really want . thy don’t bring things up on the floor (because thy are in charge ) that’s not a democracy .and there should be laws that make things be able to come up on the floor . with just one side doing only what’s good their side isn’t a democratic way . that way it just lets one side do as thy want . about 3MILLOIN more of the people voted against DONNY DUMP and for Hillary

            The real reason we know now for Trump firing Sally Yates had nothing to do with her refusal to legalize the travel ban. As it turns out the 9th Court of Appeals upheld her decision. So, in order for Trump to get rid of the burr in his butt, Yates had to go because she was smart enough to document the number of times in 2016 she and Clapper warned Trump about the possibility that his choice for NSA adviser might be compromised by the Russians. As usual, bullhead Trump refused to listen.

            Actually, the best way to get rid of Trump is to let him get rid of himself. I’ve seen that happen to corporate types over what seemingly shouldn’t have mattered.

            The ridiculousness of Trump’s claims that 200,000 voters on buses converged on New Hampshire and voted illegally is an example. Picture this…200,000 people on 200 buses entering New Hampshire en masse to vote illegally and the police wouldn’t have noticed that many people entering the state?

            Then, there’s the matter of New Hampshire’s voting laws. An unregistered voter can vote on election day. However, if they do that, the polling district clerks have cameras that take these new voters photos. But no one would notice that 200,000 new photos were suddenly being taken?

            Strike 3 is that NH like so many states has a huge fine if a voter is caught voting illegally. I believe the NH Governor stated it is something like $90,000 for the first offense.

            Do the math. 200,000 illegal voters multiplied by $90,000. This is why Trump cannot and should not EVER be trusted.

            In reality, there really isn’t a majority of Americans who would trash democracy with such ambitious vengeance and the U.S. Constitution as if it was “just a piece of paper.”

            The problem no one wants to admit is that you have southern and midwestern males who play act at being “the only voices” to be heard.

            When Trump’s 31 year old Nazi youth, Stephen Miller, on Sunday stated that the “President’s power cannot be questioned,” and then yesterday, the word out of the Trump camp was tweeted, “Our power cannot be questioned,” you see just how desperate these right wing nut bags are to overturn the government.

            Fortunately, they are a tiny minority about to be squashed by what they love to negatively refer to as “the establishment.” The joke is that those they call “the Establishment” are far more constitutionally expert and knowledgeable than a bunch of politically illiterate hicks from states who still refuse to hand over their Confederacy ideals. In other words, they lost the Civil War and have been smarting about that for over 100 plus years.

            The Bill of Rights IS the most progressive part of the U.S. Constitution: “We, the People, in order to form a more perfect union…” How do we form a more perfect union living in Pre Civil War Era Confederacy? The only way to form a more perfect union is to keep this country moving forward…not backward. The only way to do that is to build upon a solid “established” justice that insures domestic tranquility. Is that what the right wing does? There is nothing remotely tranquil about these lunatics. What they feast on is argumentative deceptions and distortions of facts and then expect the world to condone that.

            How do we promote the general welfare to form that more perfect union when the middle and lower classes are always under attack by the richest 1%. How do we “establish Justice” with that?

            As to the part of the Bill of Rights that states in no uncertain or reinterpretive terms, “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” Trump is the cancer upon the blessings of liberty because he wants autonomous power the right wing supports.
