Trump’s national security adviser quits over phone call to Russian ambassador

Flynn

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump’s national security advisor has quit as rumors swirl of ties to Russia.

General Michael Flynn resigned Monday, according to the White House, amid calls for the President to fire him. Allegedly, Flynn withheld information or possibly mislead Vice President Mike Pence in a briefing about a November phone call Flynn made to a Russian ambassador.

Just prior to his resignation, California Senator Nancy Pelosi called for Flynn to be fired.

“Michael Flynn’s conduct was alarming enough before his secret communications with the Russians were exposed. Now, we have a National Security Advisor who cannot be trusted not to put Putin before America.

“The conduct of the Trump White House speaks for itself. The reports of the Trump-Russia dossier gain credence with each passing day. As long as Republicans refuse to compel the release of President Trump’s tax returns, they are complicit in covering up Russia’s financial, personal and political hold on the Administration.

“This Administration has exhausted its excuses. Vladimir Putin’s grip on President Trump must be investigated, exposed and broken. National security demands that General Flynn be fired immediately.”

It was reported that a retired Army General named Keith Kellogg has been appointed acting national security adviser.

Flynn’s resignation letter:

In the course of my duties as the Incoming National Security Advisor, I held numerous phone calls with foreign counterparts, ministers, and ambassadors. These calls were to facilitate a smooth transition and begin to build the necessary relationships between the President, his advisors and foreign leaders. Such calls are standard practice in any transition of this magnitude.

Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the president and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology.

Throughout my over thirty three years of honorable military service, and my tenure as the National Security Advisor, I have always performed my duties with the utmost of integrity and honesty to those I have served, to include the President of the United States.

I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way.

I am also extremely honored to have served President Trump, who in just three weeks, has reprinted American foreign policy in fundamental ways to restore America’s leadership position in the world.

As I step away once again from serving my nation in this current capacity, I wish to thank President Trump for his personal loyalty, the friendship of those who I worked with throughout the hard fought campaign, the challenging period of transition, and during the early days of his presidency.

I know with the strong leadership of President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and the superb team they are assembling, this team will go down in history as one of the greatest presidencies in U.S> history, and I firmly believe the american people will be well served as they all work together to help Make America Great Again.

Michael T. Flynn, LTG (Ret)
Assistant to the President/ National Security Advisor

Interesting timing that today Trump is signing a bill that approved a resolution killing the SEC requirement for oil, gas, and mining companies to disclose payments to foreign governments. Nothing to see here! It’s all about bringing jobs to America…

You Trump supporters rip the Democrats about everything. I was waiting to see how you would react when something like this happened to the Trump administration , didn’t think it would only be three weeks though, and you are reacting just as I thought. Why are you not calling for this guys arrest for putting the country at risk? Why is this different, Just because it’s Trump’s guy? You Trump supporters have no guts, no class and no honesty. It is only going to get worse.

It was his job to talk to the Russians, thing is who illegally tapped his phone and illegally released the conversation to the public yet with all this illegal stuff happening it is still Trump’s fault.

At least we did not wait 8 frigin years to find out some people are worthless and liars like you had elected for the sheep. Be gone evil people (demorats) .

Love it, one of your own is a fraud and you try to deflect the facts to the Obama administration. You have no class and are looking very foolish. Just suck it up and admit he did wrong, then you and may get some respect.

See nADA and liberal Lynard the liar SQUEAL ! Your evil empire lost and soon will be facing criminal prosecution. Striped suits from Nordstrums.

Please resist smoking a joint before posting. When uninhibited you make absolutely no sense whatsoever.

Pelosi is a PIG ! And a great liberal liar from California – EVIL !

He made a mistake and admitted it. That makes him a hell of a lot better than anyone Obama had.

“Mistake” LOL he was putting our national security at risk. Where are the “LOCK HIM UP” chants?? But her emails…

Bull Shit. The only reason he has a problem at all is because he mislead Pence. They were not even in office when the call happened. Lighten up Snowflakes.

Here’s the timeline for those with their heads in the sand about this. 12/29 Obama announces sanctions against Russia for hacking the election. The SAME DAY Flynn had 5 CALLS with the Russians about lifting the sanctions. The next day Putin announced he wouldn’t retaliate, while that same day Trump tweets about that being a “great move”. Brushing this off as “before he took office” is hilarious. Tell me how that timeline doesn’t implicate Trump?

So what you friggin idiot? That was his job to talk to representatives in other country’s including Russia. You are just not used to a government official doing his job you just can’t fathom it. Dumb Ass.

Name calling and swearing really legitimizes your argument

Nada-He has no argument, That is why he stoops to name calling. One of the Dictator’s men got caught and he doesn’t like the fact that we are calling him out. We are finding out that a lot of Trump supporters are just plain Hypocrites.

He resigned for doing his job, not because somebody tapped his phone line illegally and then released it to the public which is also illegal and yet it is all trumps fault. You liberals are all hypocrites.

His job? Trump wasn’t even in office yet. It wasn’t his job.

He lied to the VP and the American people that is why he resigned but keep drinking the Kool-Aid and all will be fine in your world.

you fickin kidding me? You have a lot of guts calling anyone a hypocrite because you are the worst of the worst. You are a liar as well as being a hypocrite. You claim to be a conservative but are nothing but a liberal communist. Your time is done.

Hypocrite

Relax Larry. Its just LVS. He gets this way when his forgets to take his laxative.

impeachment will be coming. My dog who is smarter than most trump voters says it’s coming. Trump voters are a disgrace to America. But there is hope because a broke clock is right at least twice a day.

Well since my last posting was deleted it’s time to step it up a little. You say Trump voters are stupid? At least we are capable of our own thoughts, Democrats are incapable of a complete thought let alone one that makes sense. You people are so frikken stupid that if you all killed yourself that would be a good start.

I guess Trump didn’t hire the best people. Three weeks in and already his administration is starting to unravel.
