POLITICO – The White House on Tuesday defended its pace in firing former national security adviser Michael Flynn, suggesting former acting Attorney General Sally Yates may have had an agenda when she warned the administration about the embattled adviser in January.
Yates put the Trump administration back in the hot seat this week when she testified on Monday that she had warned White House officials that Flynn had been compromised and susceptible to blackmail after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his discussions with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.
The stark warning came 18 days before President Donald Trump ultimately fired Flynn.
But on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer painted Yates as an anti-Trump partisan who was not only appointed by former President Barack Obama (emphasis mine)…
Of course Trump (and his lackeys) will deflect rather than confront the ineptitude and gross incompetence of both himself and his administration.
Trump time and time again during the campaign was notoriously ill informed as well as consistently inaccurate with many of his statements. So much so one doing the due diligence would have to conclude Trump is actually a liar a significant share of the time. Con man extraordinaire would be an appropriate description of the, cough, man.
Yates has more honesty and integrity in the tip of her pinky finger than the “POTUS” has in his entire bloated body. BTW, a fish rots from the head down. So do organizations and countries.
America anointed as its leader a con man that is inept, unqualified, dishonest, lacking in what heretofore was considered good character, a xenophobe, a misogynist, a narcissist, and so much more. Now the only thing left is whether America itself has the character and integrity to rid itself of the cancer that is Trump and his fake populism.
