I’m a simple ‘Grain, and the thing that is keeping me puzzled is why the heck is The Moscow Mule, Michael Flynn, still part of The Fourth Reich? Why hasn’t Hair Führer said,
A US official confirmed to CNN late Friday afternoon that Flynn and the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, did speak about sanctions, among other matters, during the call.
And as they say, it’s never the crime, it’s the cover-up: Flynn lied about contacting him. A man so stupid he didn’t know that the communications with the Russians would be monitored?
Michael Flynn’s real problem isn’t the Logan Act, an obscure and probably unenforceable 1799 statute that bars private meddling in foreign policy disputes. It’s whether President Trump’s national security adviser sought to hide from his colleagues and the nation a pre-inauguration discussion with the Russian government about sanctions that the Obama administration was imposing.
The guy is a walking disaster, and to make things even more clear to us, Flynn’s top aide was denied a security clearance:
Robin Townley, the senior Africa director on the NSC, learned on Friday that the CIA had denied his “Sensitive Compartmented Information” security clearance.
And yet Flynn remains on Trump’s staff. Why?
To quote Peggington Noonington, “Is it irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to.” So here it goes:
- Trump owes Russia (something?) for the help with the election and/or whatever else that they have on him.
- Flynn is the conduit to Russia.
- Therefore Trump needs to keep him onboard.
- If Trump cuts Flynn free, then Flynn will spill the beans.
Flynn is the weakest link. If he breaks, the whole thing falls apart.
