What Michael Flynn and the Russian Ambassador REALLY Discussed

National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was fired by Trump.  Flynn was caught discussing sanctions with the Russian ambassador even before Trump took office.

Sounds bad, right?

Maybe …

But Bloomberg columnist Eli Lake – the former senior national security correspondent for the Daily Beast, who covered national security and intelligence for the Washington Times, the New York Sun and UPI notes:

One White House official with knowledge of the conversations told me that the Russian ambassador raised the sanctions to Flynn and that Flynn responded that the Trump team would be taking office in a few weeks and would review Russia policy and sanctions. That’s neither illegal nor improper.

If true, then all that happened is that the Russian ambassador asked about sanctions, and Flynn responded that he couldn’t say anything until he got marching orders from the Trump administration after it took the helm.

In other words, just more anti-Russia hysteria.

    Much of the criticism of Trump is much ado about nothing. People are scared he might actually keep his campaign promises. We should be the first to hold him to them, the most important being to tell the truth to the American people.

    If Flynn beat feet, it wasn’t from embarrassment. He was guilty of something. If Trump thinks some spooks are out to get him, he’s right. They’ve got the transcripts. Eli Lake has bupkis. That puffy orange-faced most-powerful-man-in-the-world is being put in his place. The arrogant poseur will have a taste of what real power can do to arrogant poseurs. Unlike Eli Lake, I’m being objective. I despise the CIA as much as Trump.

      Well, we could always turn to Hillary, and the spook-world’s, favorite war apparatchik – Henry the K. He always has the right answer that works every time.

      Always a sign of a fine intellect at work when he points out the “orange” aspect of Trump.

    It would seem that the transcripts must be released-every cough, every breath, every word of the Russian embassy personnel’s calls are recorded-that should come as no surprise to flynn.
