TRUMP TROUNCED TWICE IN LESS THAN WEEK AS FLYNN FORCED TO RESIGN


1) FIRST TRUMP LOST HIS APPEAL TO REVIVE HIS MUSLIM BAN

2) AND NOW OBAMA APPOINTEE SALLY Q YATES, the acting attorney general that Trump fired after she said the Muslim Ban wasn't legit, has turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving


Michael Flynn   and   Sally Q Yates

"The acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said."

WHAT EX-NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN DID

  • [Last week], the Washington Post reported that Flynn had called Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on December 29, the same day that [President] Obama had slapped new sanctions on Russia in retaliation for its hack of the US election. The conversation covered the sanctions, and, according to two officials, suggested that the Trump administration would be rolling back the sanctions in the future. 
  • That would mean Flynn had been actively trying to undermine Obama administration policy while not yet in office — a big, questionably legal no-no. Indeed, the FBI...[investigated] content of the Flynn calls.

As a result of all this Trump's National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was forced to resign tonight, less than a month after Trump put him in place.
You may recall that Flynn and his son were likely at the root of Pizzagate too. I think pizzagate qualifies as republican generated fake news. And it nearly caused a mass shooting as far as I'm concerned.

Now, I'm trying to figure out why what Flynn did wouldn't be called "treason." And depending on what Trump knew when, I'm trying to figure out if Trump could be impeached behind this at some point.  Apparently, I'm not alone.
"There are questions about whether Flynn violated the law – specifically the Logan Act – in his communications with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Donald Trump took the oath of office and the day before President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on Russia. The New York Times and Washington Post reported that Flynn discussed sanctions with Kislyak, counteracting denials from both Flynn and VP Mike Pence, who has said he got his information from Flynn"

I thought I was going dread Trump's first 100 days. This is getting good. I think I'mma break my popcorn.
