Only weeks into the job Michael Flynn has resigned. Flynn's actions had put him in an untenable position after putting Vice President Pence in a compromising position.


http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/trump-flynn-replace-kushner-234977http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/trump-flynn-replace-kushner-234977://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/trump-flynn-replace-kushner-234977

The list of possible replacements includes retired Gen. David Petraeus, who’s scheduled to meet with Trump at the White House on Tuesday, according to two people familiar with the plans. Other possibilities: Stephen Hadley, who served as national security adviser under President George W. Bush; Tom Bossert, who also served as a national security aide under Bush and now oversees cybersecurity under Trump; Adm. James Stavridis, dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts; and Department of Homeland Security head John Kelly.

This is nothing but a major blow to the Trump administration. Flynn was a loyal Trump devotee, even speaking at the GOP convention last summer. Flynns son also caused some controversy last with fake news and Hillary Clinton. This position is a personal appointee of Trump, one not requiring Senate confirmation and a major blow to Trump so early in his administration

Who will replace him? Could General Petraeus make a comeback?

Seems this is largely down to misrepresentation of his ties to Russia- if he, as National Security Advisor, was compromised by ties to Russia, can it be inferred that the administration and those who vouched for him are similarly compromised? Seems to me this has the makings of a 'Manchurian Candidate' situation.

Hooray, The batsh8t freak was obsessed with Iran to the point that he was sacked from the DIA for attempting to bully his personnel into deciding that Iran was behind the Benghazi Compound attack.

He stuck his nose so far up Putins arse he could only smell borscht.

His son was fired from trumps team because he propagated the Pizza gate HRC child abuse nonsense, which resulted in a lunatic actually firing on a pizza parlour.

He misled Pence about his dealings with the Russian Embassy re sanctions.

Hes rubbish.

Yeah definitely the Russian stink is up everyones noses.

Which will suit Putin down to the ground as (a) it makes him look terribly important and powerful (b) ties the WH up with scandal upon scandal and (c) keeps all the useful idiots in the west happy arguing the toss.

In simple down-home terms, the IC and GOP are taking back control. Fun days are over.

Petraeus is closely associated with the neocons.

So if Petraeus gets the job the neocons will have found a way into the Trump administration

“I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way,” Mr. Flynn wrote.

What a legend...

So you make five phone calls to the Russian Embassy in the space of one day, before you are even appointed it a Cabinet post, when you must if you are not totally stupid know that every communication is taped by BOTH SIDES?

And then when the IC leak your conversation you first deny it and then pretend you cant remember what you said?

And you tell the VP to go on record to defend you?

It's an out of control freak show
Sane people like Mattis and Tillerson are sitting at home saying"Jesus H Christ, what have I got myself in to and how do I find a way out, without looking like a total idiot"?

Acting Attorney General Sally Yates--before she was sacked by Trump--issued warnings about Flynn and the fact that it was strongly suspected he discussed the issue of sanctions in that controversial phone call, which of course Flynn denied...before backtracking...

Flynn is the guy who tweeted "Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL"...

Then of course there's that "Lock her up!"video..

And to think this guy was being considered for VP...

Pathetic gloating-you should see yourselves-it's like taking a walk through the monkey house in Dublin Zoo---minor hiccup-at least Flynn had the good grace to resign out of loyalty-don't see much of that amongst the great and the good in this Kip

Don't be getting so stressed. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacle. (resigning out of loyalty is a real stretch)

Maybe it's a day to wag it a bit less, Wagmore.

It's starting to show signs of wear and tear.
