Flynn: Not Suicide, but Political Assassination

Retribution through strategic leaks from Obama’s hacks in the bowels of government.

As it turns out, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn didn’t so much fall on his own sword as he had one plunged into his back. Former Bill Clinton adviser turned conservative pundit Dick Morris explained, “The Obama appointees still inhabiting the bowels of the State and Justice Departments orchestrated the coup that brought down General Michael Flynn.” They did so by leaking to the press the transcripts of Flynn’s December 29 phone conversation with a Russian official about Barack Obama’s sanctions. This was followed by dire warnings of Flynn’s susceptibility to potential blackmail by the Russians. (As if Hillary Clinton wasn’t the biggest blackmail risk in the history of the United States.) “The leaks of the content of an intercepted communication are felonies,” said former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova. “All of the disclosures to the Washington Post are federal crimes.” That’s not to excuse any deception on Flynn’s part, but clearly the bigger story is the leaks.

Flynn worked for Obama, too, and he became one of the most vocal opponents of Obama’s foolish nuclear deal with Iran. Think that didn’t stick in Obama’s craw? So, three weeks into his new job with Donald Trump, Flynn found himself on the receiving end of some carefully timed discrediting leaks — retaliatory hacks by Obama’s hacks. The larger Democrat narrative here is the same as it’s been for months: The Russians handed Trump the election, and he’s now fulfilling his end of the bargain. Unfortunately, this narrative probably isn’t entirely fabricated. There’s more news to sort through about members of Trump’s campaign coordinating with Moscow, and that bears watching.

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by Republican Devin Nunes, plans to investigate the leaks. “There does appear to be a well-orchestrated effort to attack Flynn and others in the administration,” Nunes said. And this is just the beginning. “First it’s Flynn,” Nunes warned. “Next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus.” Indeed, right now the military and intelligence ranks are full of Obama hacks who are leaking classified information. These are not hacks from the outside; these are insiders.

A final point: Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather claimed “this Russia scandal” might end up being as “big as Watergate.” Rather, who was forced to resign from CBS after he fabricated stories about George W. Bush’s Air National Guard service record, had this to say about Flynn: “Watergate is the biggest political scandal of my lifetime, until maybe now. It was the closest we came to a debilitating constitutional crisis, until maybe now. … We may look back and see, in the end, that it is at least as big as Watergate. It may become the measure by which all future scandals are judged. It has all the necessary ingredients, and that is chilling.”

Watergate is exactly what all Leftmedia want this to be — taking down a Republican president was euphoric for the Left, and they want to relive the glory days. For the Trump obstructionists and their MSM echo chamber, their objective is death by a thousand cuts. With blood in the water, Demo Sen. Chuck Schumer warned, “Gen. Flynn’s resignation is not the end of the story. It is merely the beginning.”
