Flynn Falls on his Sword - But the question is who gave the Orders for Russian Contact

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- After the great speech by Kellyanne Conway that President Trump had the full and complete confidence of General Michael Flynn, he abruptly resigned within hours of her television press release.  This leaves a lot of egg on her face and looking like a complete idiot which is not a great lost for her, but a step up in the food chain.

The question is who gave the order for General Flynn to talk to the Russian Ambassador?  It has to come from the top.  It was so "moving" that Vice President Pence looked as though he was so upset that Flynn had lied to him.  This is just a "smoke screen" on the part of the administration.

The question of Leaks in the boat?  There are a lot of them.  Every news organization gets a chance to lick on the lollipop as these "crazy" stories continue to leak out to the public.  -KHS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House national security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with Moscow’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Donald Trump took office, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.
Citing unnamed current and former U.S. officials, the Post said some senior U.S. officials interpreted the contacts as a “potentially illegal” signal to Russia that it could expect a reprieve from sanctions imposed by the Obama administration in December.
Sources told the New York Times that Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak also discussed plans to combat ISIS.

The acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said.
The message, delivered by Sally Q. Yates and a senior career national security official to the White House counsel, was prompted by concerns that ­Flynn, when asked about his calls and texts with the Russian diplomat, had told Vice ­President-elect Mike Pence and others that he had not discussed the Obama administration sanctions on Russia for its interference in the 2016 election, the officials said. It is unclear what the White House counsel, Donald McGahn, did with the information.
Flynn resigned Monday night in the wake of revelations about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.
