Former president Obama is a very slick snake, and he does NOT operate in the best interests of the American people.
According to White House officials speaking to the Free Beacon, Michael Flynn’s resignation was coordinated by a group of former Obama officials and loyalists who wanted to protect the Iran Deal from its largest critic.
The effort even including planting fake stories to discredit Flynn, the national security advisor to President Trump.
The report noted:
“The abrupt resignation Monday evening of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.
The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed.”
As we all know – Michael Flynn was one of the most aggressive critics of the Iran Deal, with Trump calling it “the worse deal ever negotiated.” While Trump will still push on with dismantling the deal, losing Flynn is a huge blow and what would have been a very powerful ally to Trump.
The official story of the resignation from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is that the relationship between Trump and Flynn began to erode after Vice President Mike Pence backed Flynn based on his word that later turned out to be untrue.
However, the explanation from from the Free Beacon means Flynn was purposely targeted because of his opposition to the Iran Deal.
“It’s undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him,” said one veteran national security adviser with close ties to the White House team. “This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters.”
Those same sources even say that Flynn was also planning to expose details of the plan that Obama hid in order to have it passed.
Many of those within the Obama administration saw the Iran Deal as the Obamacare of his second term, meaning it was just as important to the Obama legacy!
