ANOTHER MISSED MEETING
At 7pm I was pondering if a skittish GI tract and concern that the strong winds would create problems in taking my walker from and replacing into my car trunk would make it wiser for me to stay home and not attend the Council meeting.
After all the 5:2 majority would without question approve every item on with the only objections coming from politically motivated Rivers and Tolliver. That would also include the massive amount of legal contracts which were not open to public comment last Monday.
My decision became moot with my son’s welcomed phone call and the time factor had become critical. As it turned out at 8:30 there was no questioned that home was the place to be.
The circus in Washington continues with several more Trump appointees being approved strictly along party lines, no matter how tainted their records could be.
The question if Michael Flynn had compromised himself and our government was being battered about by Trumps inner circle.
Today Kellyanne the mistress of alternate facts went on record that he had Trump’s complete confidence. On the other hand press secretary Sean Spicer delivered a contradictory statement to reporters. “The president is evaluating the situation” and he was in conversations with VP Pence.
According to the Washington Post; current and former U.S. officials said that Sally Yates the fired acting Attorney General with support of James R. Clapper Jr., who was the director of national intelligence, and John Brennan, the CIA director at the time last month had “informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail.”
The article noted that “Yates and other intelligence officials suspected that Flynn could be in violation of an obscure U.S. statute known as the Logan Act, which bars U.S. citizens from interfering in diplomatic disputes with another country”
Flynn lied and he should be canned for that reason alone even ignoring his potential compromised status. Will he be?
