What’s worse? That Flynn discussed sanctions with the Russians and lied about it, or that Trump is now lying about what he knew about it?
What I don’t understand is how incompetent do these people have to be? Flynn was freakin’ National Security Advisor, and before that was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (before he was fired from that job). And yet he didn’t seem to realize that the CIA routinely eavesdropped on those phone calls?
It had gotten so bad that the CIA was starting to withhold sensitive information from the Trump administration. And why wouldn’t they? Trump wasn’t interested in his daily briefing, so the information was more likely to be leaked (to the Russians even) than be acted upon.
What’s next? Trump discussing a national security crisis with the leader of an allied nation in public, with people taking photos of the discussions?
