That 18-Day Delay
Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was professional, cool and courageous in her testimony before a Senate panel yesterday, detailing the events of January 26 and 27 when she gave the White (Supremacist) House information about disgraced former National Security Advisor and Russian mole Michael "Lock Him Up" Flynn's compromised position. Yates had transcripts of the intercepted calls between Flynn and Russian Ambassador and master spy recruiter Sergey Kislyak that indicated Flynn, prior to the inauguration, was negotiating with the Russians over the sanctions placed on them in violation of the Logan Act. According to Sean Spicer, White House Counsel Don McGahn advised neo-fascist Putin poodle Donald "Rump" Trump "immediately" of the problem, who promptly did.....nothing. Three days after her last meeting with McGahn, Yates was fired, ostensibly for defying the White (Supremacist) House on Rump's unconstitutional Muslim travel ban, but perhaps to contain the growing Russian influence scandal.
It was only after the Washington Post published the story on February 9 of Flynn's actual conversations with Kislyak prior to the inauguration, including assurances that the U.S. would be lifting sanctions against the Kremlin, that the heat got too much for Rump, and he fired Flynn on February 13. Why the 18-day delay from the time they were warned about Flynn's compromised position to when he was let go? Obviously, Rump wanted to keep the matter quiet, not knowing the Post was on to the Flynn-Kislyak calls, not even letting his VP Mike "Dense" Pence in on the secret. It's also probable that Flynn, a career military officer used to carrying out orders from his commanders, was calling Kislyak at Rump's direction. After all, Rump has repeatedly defended Flynn, saying he was "just doing his job" in calling Kislyak, a job apparently assigned to him by Rump himself. Rump was willing to keep a security risk at the highest levels of government for 18 days so that those contacts with a Russian official would remain secret. Violation of the Logan Act? Definitely. Obstruction of justice? Looks like it. Treason? Working with a hostile foreign power against the interests of your country is the textbook definition of it.
