President Trump: ‘Illegal’ Leaks From ‘Fake Media’ Brought Michael Flynn Down

President Trump said his former national security adviser Michael Flynn was brought down by the “fake media.”



At a press conference with the prime minister of Israel Wednesday, the president said Flynn was “treated very, very unfairly by the media” and ousted because of “documents and papers that were illegally — I’d stress that, illegally — leaked.”

“As I call it, the fake media in many cases,” Trump said. “I think it’s a really a sad thing he was treated so badly.”

President Trump was correct when he said his former national security adviser Michael Flynn was brought down by the “Fake Media.”

The issue here is not what Mike Flynn (as an ordinary citizen) might have said to a Russian ambassador. The issue is that Obama and his devious minions in the Intelligence Dept. leaked information from a government wire tap to the news media. They politicized this classified information to destroy the reputation of Mike Flynn. Can anyone say, the 'Espionage Act'? This law was broken by these rogue agents entrenched in the bureaucracies. THIS is what the lock-step media should be focusing on. However, we already know with whom the corrupt media is loyal to.

BTW: I don't think Trump should have accepted Flynn's resignation. It shows way too much weakness. I expected much more loyalty from Trump. Obama had never suggested that Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, Lois Learner, etc., etc. should ever step down from their positions. In fact, he strongly defended them after their blatant illegal activities. ......and their crimes where punishable by PRISON

The MSM forced Trump to accept Flynn's resignation. But I am not worried. Another military man will step in to join the business men, billionaires and ex-Goldman bankers in the administration. They will drain the swamp, fight the establishment and Wall Street just as Trump promised. Make America great again!

All acts of treason and sedition need to answer to the law

Frank I think your on target.
I think we all know that Flynn was out of line or he would still be on Trumps Staff. I believe there is " Fake Media " and " Bias Media " . In Flynn's case I believe we are seeing Bias Media.

"I think we all know that Flynn was out of line or he would still be on Trumps Staff."

NO, we don't know that at all.  Flynn comes from an era and set of standards that even if the mere appearance of some transgression were to cause damage to his community or country, someone with honor would remove themselves from the situation to hopefully prevent further damage or division.  That's what officials, military, politicians USED to do in the old days because they thought about things aside from themselves, they thought about the well-being of an entire nation, and not just whether it's embarrassing to them.    

Marilyn, I suspect that left over jihadist sympathizers left over from the Obama administration leaked the pre plan 1. to warn syria of a possible invasion of US ground and air and 2. make it look like the leak came from CIA and inject egg all over Trump administrations face thus covering their tracs. sound like and smells like Obama Clinton Soros. we will see, I loved your answer.

"Flynn comes from an era and set of standards that even if the mere appearance of some transgression were to cause damage to his community or country, someone with honor would remove themselves from the situation to hopefully prevent further damage or division."

It was definitely the honorable thing to do. Yes, I get that. Although we do not know the specifics, all things thus far indicate there wasn't any 'quid quo pro' in the phone call discussion. However, it's more than obvious that portions of the intel community has been politically poisoned. While they are loyal to Obama and other nefarious left wing ideology, they broke the law by leaking the fact that a conversation took place between an american citizen and a Russian ambassador. They violated the 'Espionage Act' simply to accomplish their goal smearing General Flynn. This is where all the focus should be, NOW and until the perpetrators are identified.

Knowing that amount of information, Trump should have stated publicly that he would NOT accept Flynn's resignation. It would have had a tremendous positive impact - contrary to the outcome the left was seeking. Doing this would clearly demonstrate a profound loyalty to his people and at the same time, thumb his nose at the left. A follow-up press conference should have been immediately assembled. The purpose and the message in that conference should have been a bold announcement of a thorough investigation into finding the rogue security leakers and to have them duly prosecuted. Jeff Sessions would be told to spare every effort in seeking justice. That would have sent the proper message! BOOM!

Simply accepting Flynn's honorable action (resignation) didn't put this to bed. Instead it helped fan the erroneous flames for more devious left wing spin. Blood is in the water and the left can taste it. It told the Left there is weakness on the Trump team. It led to further public scrutiny and condemnation by the usual Traitors, like McCain and Graham. It's the beginning (or public faux outrage) towards their impeachment build up. In these instances (and you know the left is plotting some more) Trump must handle them more aggressively. He basically needs to put on his Tough Trump Hat again and give them hell.

The Left is counting on team weakness and RINOS breaking ranks. and...We're seeing just a little bit of both.

What if Trump didn't ACCEPT his resignation.  If someone decides to resign....nobody can force them NOT to right?  Even if Flynn did this hoping it would help Trump and this administration............I don't believe that's going to be the effect.

Yeah....now that there's "blood in the water"........it could very well cause more frenzy and chaos...

Sure, Flynn could insist on leaving after Trump's non-acceptance, but that's not my point.

NOT accepting Flynn's resignation would have sent a stronger message. It would have told Flynn, "I still believe in you." ....It would have told the rest of his team and his loyal supporters that "the Left can lay traps, but we won't bite or cave"  ....and BEST message of all would have been (similar to Obama's when he promoted Susan Rice, instead of firing her) - to the Left - "Shove It! We've got a mess your boy-wonder created that we're cleaning up. So, step aside!"

AHHHHH.....I get ya' now.  Yeah, I think that would have been a better idea too.  For the most part, in the present environment....it would be better to not appear to CAVE on anything right now.

Exactly! The DEMs are using the Flynn resignation as an admission of some type of guilt. They're now saying, this is probably only the tip of the ice berg. While they're shouting these insane rants, the GOP Traitor Twins join the dopey fracas by requesting to further investigate Trump. Nice huh?

While you and I know this is all BS spin, these false accusations tend to grow legs in the corrupt media world and myth and legend become Left Wing and even main stream truth.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
