Retired Army Lt. general Michael Flynn Resigns from being Trumps national security adviser because of accusations the he will be easily blackmailed by Russia due to his relationships before position. I think Trump forced him to resign.
You can try to compartmentalize the damage, but the question now arises: what did Pres. Trump know and when did he know it? Acting Attorney General Sally Yates told the White House that Flynn had been compromised and was subject to Russian blackmail, but Trump did nothing. Oh, that's not quite true, Trump fired Yates.Not sure you can blame the president on this one. The General apparently did it to himself.
Let me count the ways: Scandal one, . . .If folks think the Russia story started with Gen. Flynn's phone call(s) to the Russian Ambassador on Dec 29, they are mistaken. The Trump Administration will do its level best to keep the focus on the post Dec 29 timeline. There are years of narrative leading up to that moment. The White House will definitely try to divert attention away from it.
Are we to assume that Flynn, a military man, operated alone and on his own, with the approval of his boss?
