According to multiple reports National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has resigned. The former military intelligence boss had become the focus of an intense witch hunt by Democrats and their media toadies that escalated quickly over the weekend.
The other shoe dropped after a Washington Post report claiming that Obama Justice Department holdover Sally Yates – who was fired by Trump – had warned of Russian blackmail against Flynn.
The coup against Trump has now begun.
As reported by Reuters “Trump national security aide Flynn resigns over Russian contacts”:
President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned late on Monday after revelations that he had discussed U.S. sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump took office and misled Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations.
Flynn’s resignation came hours after it was reported that the Justice Department had warned the White House weeks ago that Flynn could be vulnerable to blackmail for contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump took power on Jan. 20.
Flynn’s departure was a sobering development in Trump’s young presidency, a 24-day period during which his White House has been repeatedly distracted by miscues and internal dramas.
The departure could slow Trump’s bid to warm up relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

There is no way to overstate the disaster of the departure of Flynn. The Democrats have finally scored and like the New England Patriots, a 25-3 deficit no longer seems insurmountable. Look for more heads to roll as the “resistance” begins to work its way up the food chain.
Expect the calls to remove Trump from office to grow louder with the 25th Amendment being the justification. The left has now been completely infected with the poison of the neocons which it absorbed and now openly cheers the Deep State – that is pretty fucking troubling.
Flynn will reportedly be replaced by retired General Joseph Keith Kellogg.
