They’re probably popping the champagne bottles at the Schumer household as he chalks up a victory in his campaign against the Trump administration. National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn has resigned effective Monday evening. Nancy Pelosi must be thrilled as well, as she went on the record earlier in the day calling for his resignation.
Gloria Borger of CNN quoted her source as confirming the report by message at around 10:45 in the evening. She indicated that General David Petraeus would be coming into the White House for a visit on Tuesday. She indicated new information had made its way to the President over the course of the evening that, “in the end the dam burst and the President had no choice but to accept General Flynn’s resignation.”
Reporter Jim Acosta, whom the President had a rather heated exchange with which ended with Acosta raising his voice as President Trump called CNN fake news not long ago read the General’s resignation letter on air. He was also able to control his emotions with no hint of his satisfaction being apparent. He reports that Lt. General Keith Kellogg, who was National Security Adviser during the transition process will fill in on an acting basis.
Borger reports her sources as telling her that there were some feelings within the administration that Flynn’s office was not being run as well as it should have been but that in the end it was the flood of information coming in that sealed his fate. She’s CNN, they’re fake news, that may or may not be the case.
This is what the Democrats wanted, a Trump scalp to hang on the Schumer and Pelosi fireplaces and a step towards discrediting his victory, more ammunition for their assertions that the Russians were involved in the President’s win. Now we’ll surely hear the calls for more investigations into what went on and it’s going to be very difficult for the President not to acquiesce to their demands. He needs to remain strong and defiant if he can, picking his fights, but this is a really unfortunate development.
The facts are going to play a secondary role to the hype, as they always do with the Democrats, and their media propagandists are going to have a field day.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later.
