Trump Blames Obama Spies For Flynn’s Resignation - Who’s Next?

The resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has opened up even more questions about the administration of President Donald Trump. As the Omaha World-Herald shares, many Trump detractors are pointing out that this may be only the first domino set to fall, and the speculation abounds on who may be next.

Here’s what we know. Flynn spoke with the Russian ambassador during the transition, and he may have spoken to him about pending sanctions from the US against Russia. As the story began making the rounds, Pence questioned Flynn about it, and Flynn denied that he had discussed the sanctions. Pence then took the time to vociferously defend Flynn against the allegations. Subsequently, more details came out that pointed to Flynn in fact discussing the sanctions, and President Donald Trump was left with no choice but to ask for his resignation.

“There does appear to be a well-orchestrated effort to attack Flynn and others in the administration,” according to Rep. Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

The way the whole thing played out is definitely a black eye for the administration. Quite simply, the matter should have been immediately investigated, and it should have been conducted so that there was absolutely no doubt about whether or not sanctions were discussed, and Flynn should have been relieved of his duties if necessary. That didn’t happen, and that opens the administration up to criticism that it may be in disarray and mismanaged.

Whether it is or not remains to be seen, but feelings on the matter generally go along party lines. Supporters of Trump feel that he’s still getting a raw deal from the mainstream media, while detractors are smelling blood in the water and assuming this is the beginning of the end.

“First it’s Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus,” Nunes continued.
