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.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
