Retired Army general Michael Flynn, Trump’s pick to serve as his national security adviser, has been investigated for sharing classified materials with foreign governments. According to the New York Times, an Army investigation has revealed that Flynn did in fact share classified intelligence with foreign military personnel.
During the run up to the 2016 election, Flynn was one of Trump’s top surrogates for attacking Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Flynn stated that, due to alleged problems with her emails, Clinton “should not have a security clearance, because of her use of the private server.” He also stated “she doesn’t take any accountability for herself, and she put our country at risk.”
Will Flynn recuse himself from consideration for national security adviser? Will he deem himself unfit to receive a security clearance? Will he take accountability for his actions? Will he lead a chant of “lock me up”? The hypocrisy watch begins.
