CNN: White House claims Obama admin approved Flynn calls with Russian ambassador
The Hill ^ | 12/01/17 | By Max Greenwood

Posted on 12/01/2017 4:59:40 PM PST by blueyon

The White House said on Friday that it was the Obama administration that authorized former national security adviser Michael Flynn's contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during President Trump's transition, according to CNN.

Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Kislyak in the month before Trump took office, the first current or former Trump White House official brought down by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's election meddling.

Court records indicate that his communications with Kislyak were directed by a Trump transition official, with multiple news outlets reporting that official was Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

“They are saying here at the White House that Flynn’s conversations with Sergey Kisylak were quote ‘authorized’ by the Obama administration,” CNN correspondent Jim Acosta said.

So this now begs the question? Just who is Flynn going to bring down? He is going to cooperate with the prosecutor . . . against the 0bama regime?

I have felt all along that Mueller was actually working FOR Trump against the previous crime syndicate.

If Mueller takes down the DNC and the former corrupt administration - the critics can not claim that it was a GOP hatch-job. They will have been taken down by one of their own.

oooh, that’s gotta hurt.

Even if not, Does Mueler of the fortitude and gravitas to say a president elect cannot begin foreign policy? I don’t think so.

It’s protocol. Doesn’t mean Trump does things that way. Did Obama or BJ go by the rules?

Why not pardon Barack Hussein Obama? For his role in hiring Flynn.

Imagine the twitter-storm!

You know Trump had to have been aware of that all along and he just lets the stupid azzes walk right into it. Liberal heads gotta be exploding....LOL
Libs are soooo stupid. It’s part of the insanity brought on by their mental disease.
They’re dumber than a box of rocks. Up against a guy like Trump, they are nothing but kids’ play puddy.

It would help if this “permission” was in writing. I can’t imagine that it wouldn’t be.

During the transition period, isn’t the President Elect and his team supposed to set up meetings and contact other world leaders. If not, why have a transition?

“one month before Trump took office”

Let me say that another way ..... AFTER THE ELECTION

So, in case I had a stroke or a brain tumor, how is this collusion to meddle in the election.

Trump is guilty of one thing for sure - being too naive about the special counsel - no scope was set and Mueller can investigate a ham sandwich if he wants to.

I still believe this is a dog and pony show meant to drag on until November 2018.

The real danger for Trump is being set up right now - as soon as the ‘Rats get Franken out of the Senate the can go after - no not Roy Moore - but Donald Trump. The number of paid harlots that are going to come forward as being harassed, molested, raped, etc. by Donald Trump will number in the hundreds (slight exaggeration) but not until the ‘Rats finish setting the table (i.e. Franken and Conyers getting tossed). Once they think they’ve got the high ground ..... it’s about to get ugly.
