Michael Flynn Resigns In Disgrace
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn resigned on the 13th amid growing public concerns over his loyalty to the US, and the truth. The report came just hours after the WashPost published a statement suggesting that the White House had been warned that Flynn may be a target of blackmail. Flynn reportedly had discussed US sanction on Russia with a Russian ambassador in weeks prior, then lied about doing so, and then lied about lying. Caught in the middle of his own web of deceit, and amassing public support for his dismissal, decided to excuse himself after only 25 days on the job.
