Michael Flynn resigns following Monday scandal eruption – is the cover-up next?

Posted by | February 13, 2017 23:11 | Filed under: News Behaving Badly Politics

Flynn has resigned, and not a moment too soon.

Here’s how it played out:

Adam Schiff dropped a bombshell on CNN: Michael Flynn may have used encryption to hide Russia talks from US.

Kellyanne Conway proclaimed that embattled Trump adviser Michael Flynn “has the full confidence of the president.”

Less than an hour later, Sean Spicer told the press that Trump is “evaluating the situation” surrounding Flynn.

In the early evening, WaPo reported that then-acting AG Sally Yates warned Trump Administration that Flynn might be vulnerable to blackmail.

A little after 10pmEDT, the NY Times dropped the big enchilada in the punchbowl: ‘Flynn Is Said to Have Misled White House on Russian Talks’.

Shortly thereafter, the fat lady sung.

Expect the White House to characterize this as a “distraction” and a “reset.”

It’s not. It’s a full-fledged scandal – and potentially worse.

At very least it is a yuuuuuge loss for Donald “we’ll win so much you’ll get sick of winning” Trump.

But far worse, it is now abundantly clear that the Trump inner circle had been warned that Flynn was compromised. And they allowed a compromised candidate for the highest national security office in the nation to be confirmed – in effect, hiding crucial information from Congress.

Anything less than an independent investigation constitutes a cover-up.

‘Nuff said.

    I honestly do not know how long this can keep up before it al falls apart like a bunch of springs flying apart.
    It’s absolutely insane.

    • dave-dr-gonzo February 13th, 2017 at 23:31

      I’m giving it until April 15.

      • StoneyCurtisll February 13th, 2017 at 23:35

        Do we have to wait that long?…:)

          Oh that magic feeling!

            well, I for one hope that abused Melanija’s lawyers have enough good sense to get what they can while the getting is good.

            just because she’s a gold digging fake german former escort doesn’t mean she’s not human and has no feelings.

            and it sure as hell doesn’t give donald the right to abuse her like he does!

  2. Jungle_Bhoy February 13th, 2017 at 23:19

    Trump is tainted – he must resign! This goes right to the top – so Bannon must go too!

  3. StoneyCurtisll February 13th, 2017 at 23:33

    It’s about damn time.
    Took all of 3 weeks to cull this guy from the heard…
    But there are plenty more that need taken out.

    • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:56

      hell, the whole damn herd is infected and/or exposed.

      safest thing to do is stampede ’em all out of the inside circle.

  4. Foundryman February 13th, 2017 at 23:38

    Now set his ass down under oath and find out how much Trump knew of the russian hacking….

    • StoneyCurtisll February 13th, 2017 at 23:39

      Just waterboard him…(sarcasm)

      • dave-dr-gonzo February 14th, 2017 at 00:12

        But not to extract information. Just for pleasure. On Pay TV. To raise money for Planned Parenthood, with Flynn as the poster child for birth control (“Don’t let THIS kind of sociopath happen in your family!…”)

      • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:54

        China has a much better water technique. It takes a bit longer and is pretty much self operating (meaning no hands on are required) – and could also evade the ‘torture’ stigma as it ‘could’ just be a natural cause.

        enough drip…drip….drip…. in total silence, and some folks just naturally want to be involved in conversation.

    Lock him up! Flynn lied to VP Pence about his “One phone call to Putin’s Kremlin Generals on 12/29/16” It was several phone calls. And BHO44’s 12/29/16 Sanctions were discussed in Flynn’s calls to Putin’s Bros!

    Our Intel assets know the Trump Admin is the source Compromising our US & Russian spies, paid by the USA for intelligence verification, etc. Many of our best and brightest U.S. intelligence assets have suddenly been imprisoned and are now Dead!
    Lock them up! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6d9b23e3183752277f5f18143ec0fdce9fd8f2d9229d37f23ae52ed6036770fc.png

    It’s time for a huge investigation. A tremendous investigation.

    • dave-dr-gonzo February 14th, 2017 at 00:10

      An a-may-zing investigation. The best investigation you’ve ever seen.

      • arc99 February 14th, 2017 at 00:28

        The investigators from Hawaii are already on the ground in Moscow, AND THEY CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT THEY ARE FINDING!!!!!!!!!!!

      • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:46

        the very best. nobody can investigate better than LIAR trump. he should resign his current *LOSER position as potus people and become the greatest investigator ever.

        * Lady Clinton WON the vote of the people by 3,000,000. That’s more than the population of 19 states, DC or 4 US Territories.

    So will Donnie blurt out a tweet proclaiming that Flynn is a hero and a patriot who was victimized by a malicious, disgraceful news media?

    • dave-dr-gonzo February 14th, 2017 at 00:44

      I wouldn’t put it past him.

    • Roctuna February 14th, 2017 at 07:26

      He hasn’t yet?

    • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:41

      not until he gets an all clear that flynn is prepared to sacrifice his life, pension, intel company and they can hide his soon to be discovered business ties with the Muslim Brotherhood via the government of Turkey.

  9. arc99 February 14th, 2017 at 02:13

    As I watch and read the reports on this story, it is starting to sound like the storyline for a Mission Impossible movie. Was Flynn caught in some sort of sting?

    Gen. Flynn and the Russian ambassador Kislyak are by all reports experienced professionals in intelligence and foreign relations. They had to know that communications by ambassadors are routinely monitored. How in the world would they ever be comfortable enough to discuss such incriminating information unless they believed their communications were somehow completely secure?

    Popcorn is not going to cut it. Break out the Jack Daniels…

    • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:32

      they were both most probably overwhelmed with the details of trying to take out China in a surprise joint Military attack.

      they probably came to the same independent conclusion at about the same time, it ain’t possible and were more concerned about China finding out – which is more or less a mute point now.

    The pot called the kettle black by telling a yuuge lie, and now, the pot is the one who has been revealed to be the real national security threat. It appears to me that for once, the MSM did its job and kept the pressure on Flynn. Trump has only his own big mouth to thank for this because he is the one who declared war on the media, identifying it as an “enemy.” The “enemy” bit back, and now Trump’s lack of good judgment in choosing his staff is on full display for the entire world to see. I’m thinking this is just the tip of the iceberg and more will be revealed by the MSM about the treasonous b*st*rds he has surrounded himself with.

    • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:28

      like it’s being said, they ain’t no coincidence.

  11. CHOCOL8MILK February 14th, 2017 at 05:03

    So the investigation of Michael Flynn is continuing, correct? I would like to know if any laws were broken, if so, appropriate action taken.

  12. Larry Schmitt February 14th, 2017 at 07:05

    The cover up is usually where the most damage comes from.

      outlaw the republican party just like germany outlawed the nazi party after their betrayal of their republic.

  15. oldfart February 14th, 2017 at 08:57

    Round a up a team of experts
    send them to Hawaii
    and get to the bottom of this.

    • Mensa Member February 14th, 2017 at 09:21

      Release Flynn’s emails!

      • amersham1046 February 14th, 2017 at 14:41

        They are hiding them on Hillary’s server

  16. Mensa Member February 14th, 2017 at 09:18

    The coverup started with Trump’s taxes. What is he hiding? Stocks in Russia’s oil industry?

    • William February 14th, 2017 at 10:15

      How much does he know and when did he find out? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/364808acda93ecdbe06ae8ffda0e3e0239d93533c974f6185cdb927f597a4d7d.jpg

      • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:18

        that’s the kind of questions that should be coming out.

        hand picked by trump who’s “never met Putin” except 2 years earlier went into detail about how well they got along together?

        the LIAR who lost the popular vote to Lady Clinton by 3,000,000 votes (that’s more than the population of 19 different states, DC or 4 US Territories) needs to get his facts (LIES) straight before giving sworn depositions. especially if flynn works a deal.

        • William February 15th, 2017 at 10:18

          Instead of investigating the treason, Trump and his gaggle of Russian loving scumbags are going after the leakers.

  17. William February 14th, 2017 at 09:58

    I’m just going to leave this here.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Trump exacts some sort of revenge on Flynn for the embarrassment he’s caused; Trump’s a very vengeful guy.

    • Larry Schmitt February 14th, 2017 at 11:17

      If he was honest (we know he’s not), he’d know he has no one to blame but himself. He’s the one who picked Flynn.

    • granpa.usthai February 15th, 2017 at 01:11

      it’ll be interesting to see how long it takes for Flynn to flip and rat out donald.
