Michael Flynn steps down as President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser amid new revelations about telephone calls with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

This is not a good sign... it certainly doesn't bode well for any of Trump's promises of action rather than retreat... Gen. Flynn had the right to discuss general topics of concern with Russia as part of Trumps Transition Team... he was not engaged in diplomatic negotiations... in spite of what the MSM and his enemies claim.
Trump failed to support a man he CLAIMED was a major part of his plan to make America Great Again... Who's next?  Trump had better address the reasons for accepting his resignation and they had better be convincing and overwhelming.  We don't need more caving to the LEFT.

I think the problem is more the ADVICE Trump is getting than Trump himself... he instinctively knows that there are disloyal plants in his regime and that it needs to be purged... let's just hope he is able to do it before the Left sets up a Nixonian purge of their own.

I am concerned that there isn't the sense of urgency needed... and that Trump is being overloaded... he needs great staff and the GOP is failing to assist in that area... I believe deliberately. Let's pray for Trump that God has his back as the GOP Senate certainly doesn't.

Ben Rhodes and other former Obama administration officials were part of a secret cabal that plotted the downfall of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn months ago, investigative reporter Adam Kredo reports at the Washington Free Beacon.

Flynn’s sudden resignation Monday night was “the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.”

Eli Lake of Bloomberg News has a different view. He rejects the notion that Flynn “resigned because he lied about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the vice president.” To him, it’s not even clear that Flynn lied. “He says in his resignation letter that he did not deliberately leave out elements of his conversations with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when he recounted them to Vice President Mike Pence.”

Lake continues:

  A better explanation here is that Flynn was just thrown under the bus. His tenure as national security adviser, the briefest in U.S. history, was rocky from the start. When Flynn was attacked in the media for his ties to Russia, he was not allowed by the White House to defend himself. Over the weekend, he was instructed not to speak to the press when he was in the fight for his political life. His staff was not even allowed to review the transcripts of his call to the Russian ambassador.


They got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced

Not long after Election Day Obama loyalists began planning to derail Trump’s national security efforts.

National security insiders told Kredo that the Obama people carried out “a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine” Flynn.

Flynn, a source said, was determined to make many of the unseemly details of the dangerously unenforceable nuclear pact public that the Obama administration had deliberately suppressed to win support for the deal. But now Flynn is “gone before anybody can see what happened” to the secret side deals the administration attached to the agreement.

It is Rhodes, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), “and the Iranian mullahs who are celebrating today,” said one insider.They know that the number one target is Iran … [and] they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”

Labor not picking a fresh fight (yet): After unions mobilized to help scuttle Puzder's nomination, there aren't any signs yet that they will similarly go to the mat against Acosta. Instead, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said labor plans to review Acosta's record, while noting that just about anyone would be preferable to Puzder in their eyes.

"Working people changed the game on this nomination. Unlike Andy Puzder, Alexander Acosta's nomination deserves serious consideration. In one day, we've gone from a fast-food CEO who routinely violates labor law to a public servant with experience enforcing it," AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said, according to NBC News's Carrie Dann.

SENATE SET TO VOTE ON PRUITT: The Senate is scheduled to vote Friday on President Trump's nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Most Democrats have vowed to oppose Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt's selection to lead the agency, raising questions about his past work against the EPA, his close ties to the fossil fuel industry and his position on the science behind climate change.

But Pruitt has the support of every Republican except for one, and with two Democrats on Thursday announcing their support for him, he appears set to win confirmation by the Senate.

Republicans say they expect Pruitt to change the EPA's regulatory approach, which expanded under President Obama as part of his climate change agenda.

"Over the past eight years the political leaders of the EPA have taken actions that have undermined the American people's faith in the agency," Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said during floor debate on Thursday.

As Oklahoma's attorney general, Pruitt "worked to protect the environment in his state while also working for the benefit of the people," Barrasso said.   

Judge orders his emails released: Late Thursday afternoon, a state judge in Oklahoma ordered Pruitt's office to release email records that a liberal group had sought for two years.

Judge Aletia Haynes Timmons, based in Oklahoma City, ordered the release of up to 3,000 documents by Tuesday in response to a request by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) under Oklahoma's Open Records Act, E&E News reported.

The emails at issue are between Pruitt's office and fossil fuel and conservative interests.

Senate Democrats had used the emails and their pending release to repeatedly push Republican leaders to delay a vote on Pruitt, until after the documents could be released and senators could review them.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
