My previous post (“Michael Flynn Is In Big Trouble”) was either an example of spectacularly good timing or spectacularly bad timing. I’m not sure which. In any case, just as I clicked the Publish button, an alert popped up on my screen telling me that Michael Flynn had resigned. Thank God. The man was a paranoid nutcase, and National Security Advisor is the last place in the world for a nutcase.
The real reason Flynn resigned, of course, is that he lied about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. There’s no official reason yet, though. I imagine it will be something like I’m confident I did nothing wrong, but I don’t want to be a distraction during this critical time.
Question: Will the investigation continue? There’s still plenty of suspicion about whether Trump knew what Flynn was doing, after all. Second question: Where will Flynn end up? The Heritage Foundation? Infowars? Working for RT? At CNN as a national security analyst? We’ll have to wait and see.
UPDATE: Here is Flynn’s resignation letter. No real reason given except that he “inadvertently” provided Mike Pence with “incomplete information” due to “the fast pace of events.” Really? A National Security Advisor who has a hard time handling the fast pace of events? That’s really not a position for someone who’s easily flummoxed.
