Think charges will be filed against him after all?


He lied to the Vice President and watched the VPs spokespeople as well as Sean Spcier et al. go out and angrily deny he discussed lifting sanctions or pending sanctions..

The Logan Act is obscure and would not be a cause for him to resign...

I suspect that what really happened was that he gave the Russians a heads up that Pres. Obama was going to evict the 30 Diplomats/Spies from the two compounds...giving them time to destroy sensitive material and wipe PCs.

Whatever he did was damnable enough where Trumps own DOJ came to him and said Flynn had to go and was compromised by the Russians. Trump would not have cut him loose unless it risked bringing him down along with Flynn.

If Flynn had just forgetfully mentioned the sanctions?...the Logan Act has virtually never been enforced..Trump and Flynn are no stranger to scandal, they would have weathered that storm...Whatever the CIA/NSA transcripts are, they are no doubt pretty damn bad if Flynn needs to resign only 3 weeks in.

In other news...Dozens of sources are reporting that large parts of the Dossier have been confirmed by the intelligence community and investigations are ongoing..

It's starting to look like Pence might be our new President sometime in the next 12 months.

Pence will be the president in 12 months....


I am betting those same 'sources' are the ones who said Russia is hacking us but could not provide solid proof of the DNC and HIllary losing secrets like a stuck pig bleeding.

He resigned. Remember, he was 'fired' by Obama for taking a hardline on Radical Islam and AQ.

Good riddance.

To clarify...he was fired by Pres. Obama for being bat# crazy
Those that reported to him had a phrase called "Flynn Facts"...cuz he would constantly just make stuff up and was paranoid.

Wonder who Trump will pick as his new Liaison to Putin?

Those "same sources" are the Trump administration? His CIA/DOJ and Flynn resigned. Not sure how you get your brain to hold those pretzel poses...

Why do you think Flynn resigned? Not saying it was CNN...but trying to figure out the relevance of your post?

I can't paste the link at the moment, but it appears that Flynn has been a strong Democrat his whole life. Is there any chance that this was a setup since the beginning? Was he recommended to Trump as a good choice to appease Democrats, while all along his enemies planned to use him against Trump?

Flynn voluntarily resigned after VP Pence asked him to make the right decision, for the good of the young Trump administration.

The CNN blurb was from their conversations on CNN late-night.

Now we might get General Petraeus. Dems hate him, which makes the man a perfect 1st choice.

I wonder who authorized the release of the tap? Yates? or a very high up intel official.

Likely means the whole transitional team was tapped by Obama and then all that info was disseminated.

Is flynn this dumb? or is he a setup for one side?

SEAN SPICER just said that President Trump asked Michael Flynn to Step Down. I mistakenly thought he did it voluntarily.

Never a boring day in the Trump Administration!

But unfortunately, President Trump is showing how LAME Congress really is.

Flynn was caught by NSA wiretaps discussing sanctions against Russia for their manipulation of the election. Flynn violated the law by negotiating outside of the current administration as Trump was not yet President. When questioned about it first he lied about the call and then he lied about the number of calls and what subject matter was discussed during those calls. In order to protect his boss, the claim is he lied to his commander Trump and 2nd in command Pence.

Flynn was likely very loyal to his commander and thus he sacrificed himself to protect his commander and his organization. That is what he does he's a loyal soldier.

That's how it works folks - you're free to believe what you will.


I too, think he is just pulling an Ollie North.

What is suspect is that the Obama DOJ knew there was communication throughout the election cycle. So, if there was 'Russian' hacking why was this not revealed then. It seems the FBI and DOJ were full aware and why did they not tell the Trump administration earlier? Like right after the election if they are worried about Russian interference. Instead it was allowed to move forward right up to an argument in Obamas last day in office.



The internal debate over how to handle the intelligence on Flynn and Kislyak came to a head on Jan. 19, Obama’s last full day in office. Yates, Clapper and Brennan argued for briefing the incoming administration so the new president could decide how to deal with the matter. The officials discussed options, including telling Pence, the incoming White House counsel, the incoming chief of staff or Trump himself.

I am not saying that he should not be gone. He should. However, this is not about him. This is about those in the DOJ, FBI and the DNC wanting to hang Trump out to dry.

Petraeus has always struck me as an honest patriot...albeit caught up in a game he didn't realize was so rigged, until fairly recent years. He did an interview about the next seven countries scheduled to fall, back in the early 2000s.

I am rooting for Vice Adm. Robert Harward

He strikes me as a level-headed, experienced adult. Something this administration can use more of.
