Lets review the bidding - Our Intelligence service uncovers conversations between a private citizen and officials of the Russian Government that involve matters of National Security, namely the sanctions to try and get Russia to give up its invasion and annexation of Crimea.

 

Said intelligence information is made known to appropriate individuals in the Government and said individuals share the story with the media.

 

The person who made the illegal contact with the Russians then lies about it, becomes a trusted member of Der Trumper's Volk, and is asked to resign ONLY when his crimes are made public (up to that point, and even after, "he's a great guy") and it's the fault of the Intelligence Service and the Press????

 

Only in the Republibubble can such denial of reality persist. Now some GOPers are even asking to get to the bottom of Der Trumpers extensive Russian Connections, but they're gutless like all GOPers and the "investigation" will die with the ouster of Gen Flynn.

 

This is why it is essential to retake the House so Dems can do the investigating of The Manchild's dealings with our existential threats and known enemies.

Bloomberg is reporting that congressional Republicans are joining with Democrats in calls for a deeper look at the contacts between Trump's team and Putin. The idea that reporting the facts is somehow character assassination is a very interesting theory.

We need to understand what President Trump said this afternoon. about Flynn. "he is a wonderful man" apparently the illegal leaks to the media were the ones that made Flynn resign. Many are still not acepting that they lost the election.

Wel, Spicer, I believe that your boss just threw you under the bus.

didn't you say yesterday, that Flynn was asked to resign and that it was a matter of trust? Well I guess that you didn't ge the proper message. You need to talk to your boss, before you even speak in public.

Between Spicer and Kelly Ann, no one really know what is going on, they are often at odds with each other. 
Presiden Trump, is not the media it is you and your tweets.

Well, we have lying to the VP, lying to the President. We have negotiating with the Russians before he had a portfolio.  Mostly, we have a deep well to hold the lack of trust.

Oh my. Look at all the republicans condemning releasing illegally obtained material, and leaks to the media. We can expect their full-fledged condemnation of Julian Assange and Wikileaks in 3.... 2...

All of the Republicans that are blaming Trump, are doing it, because they have grown concerned, as to what all of this may mean for their own future and re-elections.

They have no ideas how any of this will end. and now are frightened as to the consequences of not at least showing some curiosity about this incident.

Excellent point, Tom.  A lot of Repubs are indeed blaming Trump, demonstrating a few have class and are actually objective.  Though, we don't see any of them posting here.  It's curious.

 

Today, Rush Limblah was blaming the media for Flynn's demise....just as Trump has.

 

Does anyone think Trump would have asked for Flynn's resignation had the fact the intelligence community told Trump Flynn had lied to Pence not been made public?

18 § 798 of the U.S. Code:


"Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates … or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes … any classified information … obtained by the processes of communication intelligence from the communications of any foreign government … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both."


That Flynn lied about what he said to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was first revealed by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, who has built his career on repeating what his CIA sources tell him.

A more appropriate headline would read, The Political Suicide of Michael Flynn.  At least one American fails to understand the decision was Trump's and his so-called "broken trust" in Flynn.

 

Meanwhile, Conservatives need to find a scapegoat other than their own.
