Seeds: On November 18 Michael Flynn was announced as President Trump’s pick for National Security Advisor. He was only in this position for three weeks and three days.
Core: February 13 Flynn resigned from the position. It was leaked previous to this that Flynn had conversations via mobile phone with the Russian ambassador. Moreover, when asked about what he discussed, he gave “incomplete information” to the Vice President, saying that he did not discuss sanctions, or that he could not remember doing so. Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary, stated that Flynn was asked to resign because of the misinforming of the Vice President.
Skin: There is discussion in Washington about whether Flynn outrightly lied or just omitted information about a call he probably was not supposed to make (it is illegal for unauthorized citizens to deal/negotiate with foreign governments about disputes, and Flynn is an advisor, not an ambassador).
Leaves: For more information on this complicated issue, here. Retired Gen. Kellogg is currently the acting-National Security Advisor.
Food For Thought: Do you think Flynn truly forgot? Who do you think should be the next advisor? Do you think any other members of the cabinet would resign in the future?
