Did Obama loyalists work behind the veil to oust Michael Flynn in order to save the Iran deal?

February 14, 2017

 Michael Flynn resigned abruptly last night as Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser amidst controversy over a phone call he made to the Russian ambassador before he was installed as National Security Adviser.

  Michael Flynn is still professing his innocence and is claiming he did not talk about lifting sanctions on Russia, here is more:

“It wasn’t about sanctions. It was about the 35 guys who were thrown out,” Flynn said.

“So that’s what it turned out to be. It was basically, ‘Look, I know this happened. We’ll review everything.’ I never said anything such as, ‘We’re going to review sanctions,’ or anything like that.

“If I did, believe me, the FBI would be down my throat, my clearances would be pulled. There were no lines crossed.”

  My initial thought about his resignation was that it was probably because he appeared to mislead Mike Pence–and he did mention this in his resignation letter–who then was embarrassed after he came to Michael Flynn’s defense. I do feel Mike Pence felt betrayed and might have been a driving for behind the resignation, however according to this story there might be another player (or players) behind the veil who worked to bring down Michael Flynn. Here is more on that possibility:

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.

  These are all unnamed sources so take it for what it is worth but it is understandable why they would want to remain anonymous if this story is true, and I for one would not put it past the Obama loyalists to do something like this to save the former President’s legacy and if this is true we can expect much more to come.

    I would wait for further evidence. I think it would be more likely it was disgruntled staffers that don’t like Trump. Getting rid of Flynn wouldn’t save the Iran deal as the Republican administration would just put someone else in his place that would work towards those ends.

      Good point but it could be part of a larger effort to discredit Trump as well.

    I thought the reason enemy Bari put those sanctions on Russia to begin w/ is that they were thwarting the scheme to take Syria down (a globalist plan). Remember those 7 countries the World Order wanted to take down the leaders using the USA forces to do so (Bush’s played into making some of that happen). The ‘fake news’ at work showing Americans that the Syrian Gov. was gassing it’s own children – total lie. US Gov sickos were providing weapons to the rebels causing deaths of citizens. Fraud prez Bari stated there wouldn’t be ‘boots on the ground’ in Syria, totally lie and no one called him on it. It was all contrived lies. Russia stood up FOR the Syrian Gov. stopping the sickos from taking over that country. The globalist elites thought they had already taken over America – that’s why the vote shocked them and Joy Ville’s rating going up, shows up there’s more of us then them! There are only a few who run it all but their minions – the news media/press/entertainers – show how vicious and vile they are; from the pit of hell kind of entities. Trump needs his own people in positions of leadership – kick out the rest of them (they’ll only jam up the works of getting the machinery back up and working)!

      Yes, the people spoke up in November and despite the left’s best efforts Trumps approval ratings are still getting higher. I think the people have finally caught onto the lies and are beginning to fight back.

    Another issue with Flynn was he probably advised Trump to sign off on the Yemen raid. As we learned this raid was a failure. Flynn has opinions on Iran and Ukraine which have been causing conflicts. He never seemed to fit in but he was loyal through the campaign. The neocons still work in the government bureaucracy and it will take time to ferret them out. Trump will have to go through staff changes if he truly wants to drain the swamp.

    Iran is going to have nuclear weapons no matter what we try to do. I think we need to get out of the ME now!

      I think it is time for us to get out of there as well and just focus on keeping us safe over here.

    This Flynn takedown may have been a sounding board for the wind surfer. As with the eight years of our “hands off the negro president” regardless of his treasonous lawbreaking so will will there be no answering for his behind the scenes machinations to bring down the Trump administration. Get used to it…
