Vice President Pence and Trump’s NSA Michael Flynn talked Friday morning and Friday evening in an attempt to repair the damage done by Flynn lying to Pence about his contact with Russia, as revealed in the Flynn report.
But President Trump denied any knowledge of the Flynn report Friday evening, while on a plane with Michael Flynn, heading to Trump’s Florida Mar-a-Lago resort.
“I don’t know about that. I haven’t seen it. What report is that? I haven’t seen that. I’ll look into that,” Fox News about Flynn and not just about his dinner with Putin and troubling RT propaganda appearances, “While Flynn is certainly a patriot who has served his country, he is also dangerously pro-Russia, and dramatically underestimates the threat that Putin poses to American values, interests, and allies around the world.
…Flynn is either willfully ignorant of Russia’s outright hostility towards NATO, or he is simply opposed to defending American interests and allies in Europe. Neither option inspires confidence in his role as National Security Adviser.”
Flynn had been talking to Russia and possibly undermining America by selling Russia on the idea that the Trump administration would be easier regarding the sanctions President Obama issued as retaliation for Russian interference with our election.
The NSA also chairs meetings that the president does not attend, with the Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense. So if Trump isn’t Russia inclined, but his NSA is, Trump is allowing a person who worked to undermine America lead meetings with the SOS and SOD.
This is impeachable level incompetence, as Trump’s (at best) poor decision making abilities are endangering our national security. At worst, Trump knew of Flynn’s talks with Russia and he knew Flynn lied to Pence.
