Mike Flynn resigned. What does it all mean?
Why was Flynn allowed to resign instead of being fired? Why is the Russian government upset about this? What's with Kellyanne saying he had the complete support of Don Don before he resigned? What happened to Judge Crater?
Stop! Take a deep breath.
There was no way Donny Dimwit was going to fire Flynn. Flynn was in like Flynn. He had the goods on Dumbo and could blow the house (White) apart if he so chose. So here's how these things play out in D.C.
1. The president says he loves you and would never divorce you even though you've been sleeping around with Ivan (Vladimir). What this really means is that someone had to take the hit and you were elected. A deal (artful?) was cut. Rubles for your Mike Flynn on a suicide note.
2. Mike does the honorable (?) thing. He resigns. He claims it was just a senior moment. Anybody could forget talking about lifting sanctions with the Russian Ambassador when the whole world is talking about what the U.S. is going to do in response to confirming that Russia was actively interfering with our elections.
3. Flynn is out. Artful Don figures he's out of the fire and Mike is a hero.
There are a few loose ends that need to be dealt with. The deal may not be as artful as someone with a 6th grade mentality thought it was.
1. What if either a criminal or a congressional investigation goes forward despite the resignation? I know you have Sessions in hand and I know there is a Republican majority in both houses, but what if?
2. Did anyone expect the Russian leadership to publically complain about this? According to the AP, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the foreign affairs committee at the upper chamber of the Russian parliament, said in a post on Facebook that firing a national security adviser for his contacts with Russia is "not just paranoia but something even worse." Worse?
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the Volga river. Catchy tune.
