Lots of Other Questions


The Washington Post:

With Flynn’s departure, the intrigue only deepens. Many questions still need to be answered: Why did Trump, who apparently was aware of Flynn’s dissembling for weeks, wait so long to force his adviser out? What did Trump himself know directly about Flynn’s conversations with Russian officials? Did Flynn potentially make false claims to the FBI, who quizzed him in the first days of the administration? Could Flynn face prosecution?

Where are the leaks coming from? If there were phone calls between Trump advisers and spooks for the Kremlin, were they recorded, and if so will they also be leaked? Will Democrats find other people whose malfeasance is tiny compared to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s, and destroy them?  

How many ways can the press remind us about Russia tampering with the election, without pointing out that at worst, the Russians leaked private email, which is a shadow of the leaks involved here? If the worst tampering they did was to show what schmucks the Democrats are, is that really a big deal?

I don’t like this crap from any angle. Flynn screwed up, and I don’t want somebody that careless advising the president. It’s not as if he lost thousands of emails, or deleted them from a server stored in the bathroom.

I really don’t like the fact that in Washington, taking someone’s scalp is a partisan blood sport. And I really didn’t like seeing Wolf Blitzer with that sanctimonious smirk on his face.

    A lot about this doesn’t seem right.

    Nobody publicly knows what the content of Flynn’s calls are, but according to the media, we’re supposed to believe the worst because they insinuate the worst with headlines like “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence,” but buried within they admit they have no evidence of cooperation and there seems to be no direct or clear indication of any laws Flynn might have broken or what he even did.

    Why are “multiple sources” just now telling CNN that Trump campaign officials were in constant contact with a Russian intelligence officials during the 2016 campaign after the inauguration when they could have easily leaked that to the press before Nov. 8 as they did Flynn’s calls recently?
