Opinion: Why The Leaks In The Michael Flynn Issue Should Concern And Enrage All Of Us

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a fan of Michael Flynn. I certainly wasn’t thrilled about him being named as National Security Advisor. My concerns were that he, and his idiot son, were too much of firebrands and Flynn would worsen not fix the problems at the NSA. Well, never mind all that. He resigned amidst one of the craziest meanest witch hunts I’ve ever seen.

Here’s my problem with this. Information was given out THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN MADE PUBLIC! Eli Lake, not much of a Trump fan states:

Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do. [Emphasis Added]

The leaks and the massive amount of collusion behind the scenes that was involved to get Flynn out of there. Adam Kredo at the Free Beacon has more.

A. The leaks were not a series of random events

B. What was Flynn going to do at NSA and how he was going to do it got people’s shorts in a very tight knot. How DARE you change our status quo!

C. Members of the Intelligence community decided for themselves to judge whether Flynn was fit or not and found him lacking.

“Put aside the issue of Flynn himself; that nameless, faceless bureaucrats were able to take out a president’s national security adviser based on a campaign of innuendo without evidence should worry every American,” the source explained.

Damon Linker bluntly states that no one, absolutely NO ONE should be cheering Flynn’s ouster.
