America's spies anonymously took down Michael Flynn. That is deeply worrying.

To those that think it was okay:

As has been pointed out, Flynn was a private citizen at the time.

So therefore, a court had to approve the tapping and recording.

Which court? Which agent applied for the permit? How did they get Flynn's number? Was someone tapping the Russian ambassador? Was this FBI, NSA or CIA?

Lots of unanswered questions.

p.s. I agree Flynn should have resigned if he lost the VP's confidence.

And Obama fired him for being unstable.


......meaning? He disagreed with Obama, therefore he's unstable. ha!

Anyway, you missed the point as usual. With 30+ years in intelligence, he knew the game. He was not blindsided. Get it?

leaks during the elections were applauded, sources werent questioned. now they are


Of course they weren't questioned, the right hates government except for when they're using it to enrich the private sector.

Yes. No. Yes. Yes. Questions answered. If nothing else, Flynn was an idiot. He knows the US taps diplomats' phones.

Meaning his staff reported him for being out of bounds and for trying to advance unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.
No wonder you guys love and defend him.

This is so strange; didn’t Flynn and the Russian ambassador know they were being taped?

The Russian may have done it to black mail Flynn. How can the ex- head of the DIA fall for this trap? It just doesn’t make sense.


As for Trump, he will be in big trouble IF they find out he sent Flynn to that Russian ambassador.

It again, like Nixon, boils down to what and when did he know certain things.


Right now Trump is being eaten alive by some deep force that is chewing on him like a shark chews on a bloody fish.

That force is the Eastern faction of the elite using the CIA and its allies to batter Trump. They won’t stop, it’s only going to get worse.


But they’ll keep Trump around long enough for him to keep messing up more and more and more.


In the end its going to be very very ugly

The whole thing was manufactured by the MSM/BS complex.

Which........must be why he was #canned.


This goes much deeper than what we are being told.

Much deeper.

So they were classified messages. And someone leaked them to a newspaper. That is a felony, and not protected by whistleblower laws. Unless the Obama Admin head of NSA or FBI can point to the leak, they should go to jail.

Rebuttal?

Meanwhile, yes Flynn knew they are tapped. He worked in Intelligence under the Obama Admin. Obama fired him because Flynn openly disagreed with Obama's ISIS strategy. Even more evidence that nothing damning was said. Remember, we don't know what was discussed. We only know that a discussion happened, disclosed by a biased media outlet.

Very much agree there is a war going on between the the elected leadership and the deep state / intelligence agencies and yes regardless of what you think of the man you should be worried.

It shows some of the inner working of government and there is an element thats runs in the background regardless of who is elected. This is the same body that is waging an information war against Trump through the main stream media.

This element is undemocratic, unaccountable and invisible.

They were listening to the embassy not Flynn. Flynn called the embassy.

But if it stops a demagogue from turning the country into a totalitarian state, they have kept their oath to uphold the Constitution.

The embassies were in Maryland and Florida.
That's domestic.

You guys go this all wrong, they wanted Trump to win this race.

WHY?

So he could make the disgraced neocons look good in comparison

When he does this, they will discard him

Trump is a deep state psychological operation to revive certain discredited factions.
Trump will even, in the end, make the horrible CNN look good.

They were not "classified messages." They were potentially illegal and unconstitutional communications between a future member of the Security Council and the ambassador of a hostile foreign power. The text of the recorded conversations have not been leaked; they remain classified. The President could declassify them to prove his adviser's innocence. That hasn't happened. Do the math.
