By now, most everyone’s heard of the resignation of Michael Flynn from his national security adviser role.
The Trump administration has already reacted, as they fully intend to discover if illegal, sensitive information was leaked, and how to stop it in the future.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Down the rabbit hole, Alice…
First, let’s acknowledge that the blatantly left-leaning mainstream media has depicted a bungling, chaotic, turbulent White House. And of course, this is just more supposed ammunition for unhinged Democrats calling for Trump’s impeachment.
Now, onwards down that rabbit hole.
Flynn, after all, was a harsh critic of Barack Obama. Flynn, too, is an Iran Hawk, a departure of epic proportions from the Obama administration’s policy on Iran.
So what’s occurred, as Hot Air noted, is an Obama-fueled take down of Flynn using the some of the previous administration’s still-employed inner federal circle.
“The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed…
”It’s undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him,’ said one veteran national security adviser with close ties to the White House team. ‘This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters.'”
And here’s the bigger story, the one the mainstream media won’t touch with a ten-foot pole because it gets in the way of the press’s all-courts anti-Trump press:
Leaking national security information is a criminal offense.
Those who leaked information about Flynn that exposed him as talking to Russia, when he told White House officials he didn’t, are guilty of compromising America’s national security and betraying the country’s best interests.
But you think CNN, or ABC or NBC are going to jump on that story?
Don’t count on it. The leakers, after all, are all most likely Obama’s biggest supporters, friends and allies with the mainstream media.
And those people unfortunately still have tremendous power…which is PRECISELY why President Trump needs to continue to DRAIN THE SWAMP!
