Now resigned national security advisor Michael Flynn says the "real" problem is the "leak" not the content.

Flynn say the leaded transcript of his phone call with a Russian diplomat is a crime.

He is maintaining he crossed no lines by talking to the Russians, and he does not know where the leaks came from.

What are we missing here?

EXCLUSIVE: In Final Interview, Defiant Flynn Insists He Crossed No Lines, Leakers Must Be Prosecuted

In the final hours before his resignation, now-former White House National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn said he “crossed no lines” in his discussion with Russia’s ambassador, but ultimately he was most concerned about the steady stream of leaks to reporters based on classified information.

“In some of these cases, you’re talking about stuff that’s taken off of a classified system and given to a reporter. That’s a crime,” Flynn told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group during a telephone interview from his White House office on Monday.

“You call them leaks. It’s a criminal act. This is a crime. It’s not just a wink and a nod,” Flynn said.

"Don't pay attention to the information that was leaked, let's focus on the fact it was leaked at all and who might have done it."

That sounds incredibly familiar, who else has said something similar in the last couple of months?

It was an issue, that's why he was asked to resign. Did you watch the WH press conference today?

He wasn't fired because he did anything illegal, he was fired because the lie to Pence caused trust issues.

So is he a poor innocent Republican or a filthy Democrat plant? The real news doesn't seem to be all on the same page yet.

My thoughts exactly.

I wonder what some of the excuses will look like in this thread.

Republican?

Flynn was Democrat who served on Obamas administration.

Flynn is a registered Democrat, having grown up in a "very strong Democratic family".[70

Admit it. You are very poorly informed..

Uninformed idiots should keep their fool mouths shut.

Hypocrites. He is one of you all.

And now... well he was... playing on team GOP, right?

But if it makes you feel better, I'll re-word.

Is he innocent because he was team Trump or is he guilty because he's a Democrat?

Jeeze dude, no one asked you to stop posting.

it sure was not an issue 3 weeks ago when trump knew about it

new.www.huffingtonpost.com...


Flynn resigned late Monday after revelations that he had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador a month before Donald Trump became president. Sources told The Washington Post that in January, then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates had warned the Trump administration about possible Russian blackmail and suspected that Flynn misled officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, about his contact with Russia. But on Tuesday, Conway, who had claimed just hours before his resignation that the White House had “full confidence” in Flynn, repeatedly could not say why the administration waited to act.



But the fact is, General Flynn continued in that position and was in the presidential daily briefings, as part of the leader calls, as recently as yesterday,” Conway said. Host Matt Lauer was incredulous. “Kellyanne, that makes no sense,” he said. “Last month, the Justice Department warned the White House that General Flynn had misled them and that, as a result, he was vulnerable to blackmail and at that moment he still had the complete trust of the president?”



On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Conway similarly had no answers on the timeline of events and instead tried to push back on The Washington Post’s report. “These are what are in printed reports, but the fact is that I can’t reveal what the White House knew or didn’t know and who in the White House knew or didn’t know,” she said.



lies stacking on top of lies

it was not an issue until it was reported

conway said trump was fully confident in him....then he resigns....was he asked to or did he on his own?
cant get a straight answer on that either. the white house has said both

i think trump, conway, and spicer need to have a daily lie briefing so they can all be on the same page of the same lie at the same time

This is really going to upset Trump/Flynn haters.

UNDER US LAW.

Information that is obtained ILLEGALLY is inadmissible in courts of LAW.

LEAKS are ill gotten gains.

Fruits of the poisonous tree.

That blind hatred is their greatest weakness.

The better question is if it's an unacceptable excuse for the DNC, why is it acceptable now?

This is the problem: some of you folks don't seem to want "your guy" to be better than the other guy. You're fine with them being just as big a #bag as the other guy, and complain about it when people complain about the same thing you complained about a few months ago.

I'd like to suggest taking these line crossings and dealing
with them first things first like.

This would have to go on the back burner, Clinton is still
there on the front line.

Her crimes were far worse.

I like the latter.
ETA: (and I liked when you called him a filthy Democrat plant even better)

But, he's right. Whoever leaked the transcript (unless they put it right in the hands of the VP) is gonna do some jail-time. Trump's guys know who leaked too.

Partisan much?

Why are people so worried about parties here.

The guy was probably trying to stop WW3, Obama the CIA and the MSM were desperately trying to start something with Russia at the time,now that he's gone there's no more voice to advise against a war with Iran which coincidently has just found 30 million more barrels of oil.

Trump came in in support of Israel and Saudi Arabia.

The neocons are back in charge.

You've been had

Because he is being used as a distraction from her
investigation that was going to be first up after the election?

The content of the any leak is concerning but as far as national security and big picture goes...the people leaking info concerns me more. What's to stop a leaker from giving away deployment plans or asset locations for the sake of a news story or worse for profit to the enemy.

If he didn't do anything wrong then why is he resigning.
