A Flynn Of A Different Color

First let me say….I Love This Stuff!

It appears that the Flynn controversy is far from over…..the discredited Trump adviser is once again in the news….

Documents released by lawmakers show President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was warned when he retired from the military in 2014 not to take foreign money without “advance approval” by Pentagon authorities, the AP reports. Also, the Defense Department inspector general’s office confirms in a separate document that it is investigating whether Flynn failed to obtain prior approval. The chairman and senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee say they want the Army to rule on whether Flynn informed and asked permission for the payments from Russian and Turkish entities. Flynn earned tens of thousands of dollars from Russia’s state-sponsored RT television network and from a Turkish businessman linked to Turkey’s government. (Flynn may face criminal prosecution.)

I am sure that some of those mentally challenged people that still support Trump will have lots to say about this….all I can add is the US Constitution…..the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, noting it “prohibits receipt of consulting fees, gifts, travel expenses, honoraria, or salary by all retired military personnel, officer and enlisted, regular and reserve, from a foreign government unless congressional consent is first obtained.”

And now the Trump team is pushing an old reliable excuse….it is Obama’s fault!

Spicer made the remark during a press briefing on Thursday, when asked about suggestions the White House may have failed to properly vet Flynn.

“His clearance was last reissued by the Obama administration in 2016 with full knowledge of his activities in 2015,” Spicer said. “All of that clearance was made by the Obama administration.”

In other words……Flynn was NOT vetted…a National Security Adviser with no vetting….now there is a good idea.

Back in the day, during the Clinton Benghazi and email hearings, I watched the head of the House Oversight Committee, Jason Chaffetz, play his part well got on his high horse and did everything to chastise Clinton short of banging his shoe on the podium….from his chair had several long diatribes on conduct and such (it was all so much beautiful political theater)…he was outraged, to say the least.

And now that there is a GOP president and his adviser having a tough time…was he the same “tough” representative?

You tell me.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), chairman of the Oversight Committee, said the payments were “inappropriate” and that there are “repercussions for the violation of law.”

I have called Repubs many things…toads, worthless etc but the one word that describes them the best is COWARD!

And Rep. Chaffetz has proven my point.

After being a firebrand with Clinton to avoid all the crap that will come about because of the Flynn affair….Chaffetz is decided it is time to run home and hide…..

Jason Chaffetz now says that he’s immediately taking leave from Congress due to a problem with his foot. Considering the controversial roller coaster of events surrounding Chaffetz over the past two weeks, this is not particularly plausible. Sure, he’s having the foot surgery. But it’s for a twelve year old injury (CNN), and he’s using it as a timely excuse to bail. It may be that he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place, the rock being Russia and the hard place being the FBI.

Like I said….COWARDS!

  1. How can a man who is intelligent, experienced and who has dwelt at the conference table with leaders of immense power be so friggin stupid ? Doesn’t he know that only HillaryBillery are immune to prosecution for criminal and ethical misbehavior?

    1. Just like with Clinton there needs to be an investigation but they are playing politics and political theater….we will see how far this will go…have a good weekend….chuq

  2. The Trump Adm. will always find someone to blame for their questionable if not criminal issues. I don’t recall Obama bitching and moaning about “the horrible mess” he had inherited. He took the bull by the horns and accepted it as his responsibility as the president. The buck stops there. I am sickened by the leverage allowed this group of incompetents. The members of the house of representatives were elected by the people but choose to ignore the people and pay homage to the new dynasty…on a side note we Floridians are sick and tired of paying the way for the dynasty to spend week ends at Maro Lago. They need to pay their own way on their ill gotten gains or stay in the White House.

    1. It is juvenile to blame others for one’s incompetency…but what can we expect from a aging 5th grader?

      The voter is only important at election time after that they are just a nuisance that must be tolerated but now listen to….we deserve better….we shoul;d demand better….chuq
