Quote
Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser, resigned on Monday night after it was revealed that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

Mr. Flynn, who served in the job for less than a month, said he had given “incomplete information” regarding a telephone call he had with the ambassador in late December about American sanctions against Russia, weeks before President Trump’s inauguration. Mr. Flynn previously had denied that he had any substantive conversations with Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak, and Mr. Pence repeated that claim in television interviews as recently as this month.

But on Monday, a former administration official said the Justice Department warned the White House last month that Mr. Flynn had not been fully forthright about his conversations with the ambassador. As a result, the Justice Department feared that Mr. Flynn could be vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.

In his resignation letter, which the White House emailed to reporters, Mr. Flynn said he had held numerous calls with foreign officials during the transition. “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador... I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way,” Mr. Flynn wrote.

Officials said Mr. Pence had told others in the White House that he believed Mr. Flynn lied to him by saying he had not discussed the topic of sanctions on a call with the Russian ambassador in late December. The F.B.I. had been examining Mr. Flynn’s phone calls as he came under growing questions about his interactions with Russian officials and his management of the National Security Council. The blackmail risk envisioned by the Justice Department would have stemmed directly from Mr. Flynn’s attempt to cover his tracks with his bosses. In addition, the Army has been investigating whether Mr. Flynn received money from the Russian government during a trip he took to Moscow in 2015, according to two defense officials.

Welp... Can't say I didn't see this coming, especially after his son got into an argument with a news reporter over Pizzagate.

It hasn't even been a fucking month yet, enough bombshells have dropped to last a full presidential term.

Looking on the bright side, Trump's presidency is self-destructing faster than anyone could have possibly dreamed.  If we're lucky he and the rest of his lackeys will be gone with similar scandals before the year's out.

Hey, a "clever" way of telling somebody to kill themselves

How about you think of different ways to present your rebuttal chief
Oh, why must I tell 'em again?
What must I tell 'em, my friend?
That we are born into sin
And we are worshiping murderers
Nothing but evil duplicitous men
I know you heard of 'em all
We should just murder 'em all
We should just murder and ball
We dance on the ruins we looting from all of they palace's walls

I don't argue with liberals who want to start crap threads about the president. I figure they're are lost & will never change your minds, so not going to try. I will say this though I never once made a political thread threw Obama's administration here at MFG & that guy was the worst. I mean he created & funded ISIS, started 3 more wars, spent 10 Trillion dollars etc.. I kept my mouth shut here while watching certain people clap for that guy. Now I see the same culprits starting false narrative threads against Trump. You say clever way to tell someone to kill themselves & I say it's a half ass way of running a thread into the toilet. Don't like it then send my post to the recycle bin or ban me from MFG, because i'm only expressing myself like these other people.

stuff

You sound like the triggered libtards you insult. It's hypocritical as shit to do that and then get all hostile when someone speaks ill of the God Emperor.

Just say you don't trust the media, I question them too. You can do that without calling everyone here a miseducated leftist.

I mean it has sources that come from off site too. But yeah, ignore that. A better rebuttal would have been to hold strong that Obama meant what he said and it wasn't a slip of the tongue. Since it can't be proven to be true or not you'd have more to stand on.

But you're right, it's in the toilet now that an insufferable blind rage has started posting. See you in 3 days

I figure this is the best thread to ask in, and I'm not trying to start anything, just have 1 question answered.

Why do right-wingers think Snopes.com is propaganda &/or biased &/or censorship &/or lies? Is there a real reason?
