It looks like General Mike Flynn definitely did wrong. (By the way, if THIS is all they’ve got on Flynn, I think he was WRONG but it doesn’t seem devastating to me. There has to be something more other than accepting a fee for a speech after he had been told he couldn’t without previous approval.) That he did accept money from Russia for a speech seems to be a given. My question is why so much of the media seems to be blaming Trump’s White House. Like ‘One of TRUMP’S guys took MONEY FROM RUSSIA!” Trump’s guys? He had barely started working for Trump…only days before this stuff kicked up, I think?
My curiosity is about how the White House could have known anything about Flynn’s indiscretions and how much a new White House staff has the ability to vet future cabinet post appointees. If a man is an American GENERAL, I’d have thought that the vetting of Flynn would be assumed and presidents can pretty much count on an AMERICAN GENERAL so how is it Trump’s fault that Flynn took Russian money?
Tell me what you know.
