President Donald Trump revealed that American's should be less concerned with the actions of Michael Flynn and more focused on the 'illegal leaks' that forced his departure.
“The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington?” Trump said on Twitter.
Mr. Trump accepted Flynn's resignation as National Security advisor after Attorney General Sally Yates accused him of misleading the government during his talks with Russia. In his resignation letter, Flynn admitted to "inadvertently" giving VP Mike Pence "incomplete information" regarding his calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
The media is brutally attacking Flynn and searching for more to the story than there appears to actually be. President Trump accepted Flynn's apology and is quickly searching for a replacement with only one concern on his mind - “Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N. Korea?”
Critics of the administration are failing to recognize that the real issue is not what Flynn did but rather how Washington hecklers handled the situation. The talks were conducted before Flynn began working for the Trump administration. He admitted his timing was wrong and presented the facts to Donald who took time to investigate the instance and take appropriate action. Mr. Trump approached the serious situation with great care, as any good President would. However, the culprits who ratted Flynn out and presented the problem to the media and Yates are what truly worries Trump about the state of Washington.
The President is trying to tackle numerous foreign and domestic issues that threaten American lives! He can't fully do his job while worrying that low-level staffers are taking notes at every corner searching for slip ups. When dealing with things like National Security, there isn't time to play politics. Trump knows this better than anyone. It's time for D.C. to begin trusting Donald and giving him a moment to think before attacking his decisions!
