Who wants to go to jail?
Jason Chaffetz wasn’t always Trump’s biggest fan, but now he even sees what’s going on.
He wants the leaks investigated.
People think it was a setup by Obama.
Should President Trump begin an investigation into the Clinton Foundation?
It appears that somebody has been “leaking” sensitive information to the media, and people are outraged.
The abrupt resignation Monday evening of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.
The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed.
The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration’s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.
With Flynn now gone, their first goal has been met. If Trump is not next, he is not far down the list. Trump needs to weed these traitors out ASAP, or Obama will be able to continue wreaking havoc on this administration and undermine any efforts Trump makes to fix this country.
