President Trump’s embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday night, Fox News reported.
Flynn, in his resignation letter, wrote that he “inadvertently” briefed top officials with incomplete information regarding his call with the Russian ambassador.
“I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology,” the letter read.
Right, so that’s done.
Oh, one question– and allow me to state that I neither love Flynn nor hate him– what of this line, “The Washington Post reported last week that Flynn had discussed sanctions with the Russian envoy”?
One would expect that the “Russian envoy” would be monitored, but was Flynn, a US citizen, also being monitored? If so, then presumably under warrant? And wouldn’t the transcripts of any conversations be classified and not open to release? Who released that information to the WaPo? And who asked for the warrant?
