Michael Flynn on the chopping block?

The Wall Street Journal (via Daily Beast believes there is strong cause to say “yes”:

National Security Adviser Mike Flynn may be in danger of losing his job, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The administration is reportedly weighing whether to dismiss Flynn over his controversial contacts with Russian officials and the publicity surrounding it. Flynn has allegedly apologized to President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who are said to have disagreed over the appropriate response to the situation. “He’s apologized to everyone,” an official told the Journal. On Dec. 29, Flynn spoke by phone with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and initially denied that he discussed new sanctions imposed by the Obama administration. Flynn later admitted that the conversation included mention of the sanctions. Transcripts of his phone calls corroborate that Flynn and Kislyak indeed discussed the matter. It reportedly also became clear that Flynn has had more than one phone call on the issue, despite the White House initially denying those claims. Trump has told close advisers that although the controversy is “unwelcome,” he is going to “look into” the matter further before making a decision. Trump has also said he wants to “keep moving forward” with Flynn. Trump adviser Steve Bannon reportedly had dinner with Flynn over the weekend and has decided to keep him in his current post but is said to “be ready” to fire him if it becomes necessary.

    If Flynn doesn’t go it’s proof there’s been a coup and Putin is our new president … Flynn is the leak the IC has been complaining about. He’s a direct pipeline to the Kremlin … he needs to be shot right after we hang him for treason without a trial.

    I’ll be convinced Trump will fire Flynn when it actually happens. I think he and Pence are currently trying to figure out a way to save Flynn’s job. I hope the MSM continues to hammer away at Flynn’s Russian connections, and he is forced to resign.
