Trump – Agent of a Foreign Power?

Posted by The Skibbereen Eagle | February 15, 2017 6


People on this side of the Ditch may be unaware of the full implications of the Michael Flynn resignation and how it cuts to the core of the Trump Regime’s legality.

Particularly so as The Donald was informed weeks ago that Michael Flynn had discussed ending sanctions with Russia before Donald Trump was inaugurated as President and before his appointment as National Security Advisor had been confirmed. Michael Flynn’s conversations with the Russians went slightly beyond dialogue and Trump was warned by the AG and the intelligence services.

“On December 29, 2016, retired lieutenant general Michael T. Flynn, President-elect Trump’s pick for national security adviser, spoke with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, the exact same day the Obama administration announced retaliatory measures in response to Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. At the time, Sally Yates and other security officials suspected that Flynn might have violated the Logan Act with those conversations. On February 13, 2017, Flynn resigned from the position of National Security Advisor.”     


Flynn was on holiday in Dominican Republic when he called US Russian Ambassador. the FBI must be all over Ambassador’s phone calls.

Don’t feel bad about this as it seems the man-child Donald the Unready was also unaware that it has been the LAW of the United States since 1799 that an individual CANNOT negotiate with a government that the United States is in dispute with. It is the LAW to stop the government of the United States being undermined by private diplomacy.

Michael Flynn’s abrupt resignation as national security adviser, and the admission that he misled the vice president about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, raises the clear question of whether Flynn was rogue or authorised. Far from cauterizing the wound, Flynn’s departure puts more blood in the Senate waters, and rattles diplomats at the United Nations. The Watergate refrain, “What did the president know, and when did he know it?” is the tune of the day on Capitol Hill.

Has “Out like Flynn” become a saying in the United States?

I “inadvertently briefed [people] with incomplete information” = I lied.

Does anybody doubt that Russia has “stuff” on Trump and where is the outrage that a foreign gangster state aggressively influenced the outcome of a US Presidential Election?

It is only 26 days into the Trump Car Crash Presidency and how we miss having a grown up in the White House.

The Skibbereen Eagle

In 1898, to widespread bemusement, a small Provincial Newspaper in an equally small town in the South West corner of Ireland sonorously warned the Czar of Russia that it knew what he was up to and he should be careful how he proceeded for “The Skibbereen Eagle” was wise to his game and in future would be keeping its eye on him! It is doubtful that Nicholas II, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, even noticed the Eagle’s admonitions but as history soon proved he should have paid closer attention to the Eagle’s insightful opinions!

Today, powered by its readers and contributors, from its cyber eyries in Ireland and the centres of the Irish Diaspora The Eagle casts its Cold Eye on Life and Death and much in between.
