Mike Flynn resigned in disgrace, Trump was concerned about how people found out

  • Trump, in his first public statement on Flynn scandal, is not focused on Flynn’s behavior, but rather on the fact that the public found out about.
  • “The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington?” Trump tweeted. “Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?”
  • Trump’s attempt to distract from the Flynn scandal with his tweet serves only to draw attention to the fact that his White House is plagued by leaks from his own staff.
  • House Republicans are taking Trump’s side, calling for investigations into who leaked the information about Flynn’s dealings with Russia, rather than the nature of his dealings or whether they were ordered by anyone in the administration — not to mention what Trump himself knew and when.
  • Democrats, however, are calling for an investigation, asking for the FBI to get involved. Read more (2/14/17 10:43 AM)
Live Updates: Speaker Of The House Dodges Question About A Mike Flynn Investigation
National Security Advisor Gen. Mike Flynn resigned Monday evening after it was revealed he lied to the vice president about communicating with Russia before Trump became president.
By BuzzFeed News

Here’s What’s Going On:

  • Gen. Mike Flynn resigned as President Trump’s National Security Advisor on Monday evening after it was revealed he communicated with a Russian official about sanctions before Trump took office — which could have been illegal — then misled Vice President Mike Pence about it.
  • It was also first reported by the Washington Post on Monday evening that former-acting Attorney General Sally Yates in late January briefed Trump that Flynn was vulnerable to Russian blackmail.
  • But, in early February, when asked about Flynn’s communication with the Russians, Trump told reporters he had to “look into” it, adding, “I don’t know about that.”
  • Trump on Tuesday morning seemed to blame the media, tweeting, “The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?”
  • There was a lot of confusion in the lead-up to Flynn’s resignation — and that’s continuing into Tuesday. Earlier Monday evening, Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway insisted Flynn had the president’s full confidence. Later, Spokesman Sean Spicer walked that back. Shortly after, Flynn resigned. But then, on Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that Trump asked for Flynn’s resignation.
  • Democrats are calling for a congressional investigation — but leading Republicans are not.
  • The whole episode offered proof that Pence does have some power to spur change in the White House.
  • And here are the military men who could replace Flynn.
  • Flynn’s son — who has peddled conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton — said on Twitter Tuesday that his father was the victim of a “disinformation campaign.”

for the love of god don’t ever use Chinese characters if u don’t appreciate our culture at all…. it’s so infuriating idc if u know what it means lol it doesn’t justify ur use of our language it doesn’t hide the fact tht u’re only using it because it looks Oriental And Cool™. nvr understood the whole yin yang trend and the shirts with chinese characters trend lol u white ppl and ur ugly trends. ur so-called knowledge of Chinese culture is probably just knowing who Bruce Lee n Jackie Chan are lmao,,,, and tht we eat rice as staple food n have strict parents n study everyday n have small eyes. yup dem basic stereotypes,, mhm

bet yall white people rushin to cover up ur western-centric views of us Chinese n deeming it as ur so-called knowledge of our culture,,, so u can proceed to use our culture as ur aesthetic haha

basically dont ever use another language as ur aesthetic without trying to appreciate their culture it is v demeaning and belittles their entire history. languages r integral to a race’s culture AND history, hence dont ever be insensitive abt it lol

Thank you❤️❤️❤️❤️Heuheoh #ShouldersWentToTheGalaxyAndBack
[T/N: In Korea, when someone’s ‘shoulders raise up’ that means that they have a lot of confidence/pride. So he’s saying that because of ARMYs support (in the background) he able to raise his shoulders high and was super confident/proud.]
