Early shake-up in Trump's administration

It's all over the news--National Security Adviser General Flynn resigned!

He misled the Trump administration officials about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. He was a loyal Trump supporter throughout the campaign, but his ties to Russia caused concern among other senior aides. He should have known better. He should have know that these conversations were being recorded.

I listened to Mark Levin yesterday and Levin called this controversy a ‘nothing burger’, pointing out that it’s the media and the left who are pretending this is the crime of the century just to get Flynn fired.

“Do they not understand what’s going on?” The media and the Left is going to use leaks from Obama administration hold-overs to smear every one of President Trump’s staffers and confidants. “This is guerilla warfare by bureaucracy,” Levin explained.

The problem is here, it's not a "nothing burger" and not only the biased media and the left this time--it is also Republicans and the President. If Flynn did tell the Russian ambassador that sanctions would be removed, then his resignation is appropriate. The President has to rely on his national security information as 100% reliable and the truth.

The fact that Flynn collaborated with the Russians in order to undermine U.S. foreign policy tells us all we need to know about the people walking the halls of the White House these days.

There will more more. Watch.

Look, this is one incident. You be sure to do your "watching." Get your jollies off with your stupid marches and protests, etc.
You, without a doubt, will twist everything the President and his staff do.

Flynn screwed up, made a big mistake and got what he deserved. This isn't s political witch hunt, it's a fact so spin it anyway you want. Trump voter here!

Another "real" Trump voter here. It's always the cover-up or the lie that gets you in trouble. Trump doesn't want that type of person advising him.

Yes I read it but you interject opinion with facts so it's not really clear as to what you are saying.

You think he made those calls to Russia on his own? Seriously?

This is the third Trump associate who has left because of questionable ties to Russia. This is a huge problem for not only the Trump Administration but for Americans.

This is the trash Trumpsters voted for and Republicans supported.

Grab some popcorn. The show is only beginning.

Dont worry about all these communists and obstructionists. They wont be happy until Trump drops dead. 4 ore years of these crybabi4es. I doubt if the world will be able to stand it.

President Trump demands honesty to himself and ultimately to the American people. This resignation is not a mark against Trump. It is proof of his absolute zero tolerance policy for dishonesty. He cannot make the important decisions he as President has to make if his staff is not the best.

I'm more interested in replacing and restoring the infrastructure than in this nonsensical political infighting. 200,000 people evacuated in CA do to political corruption and incompetence. I must take this opportunity to use part of Pat Buchanan's blog today when he quoted James Baldwin's famous book:"God gave Noah the rainbow sign/No more water, the fire next time."
