If there is a clearer example of what a fundamental hazard Donald Trump poses to our National Security than his handling of Michael Flynn, then I don't know of it. Not only did President Obama tell Trump that Flynn was unsuitable to be given a position in National Security on November 10, 2016. But less than a week into Trump's Administration, Acting Attorney General Sally Yates hurried to the White House to warn Trump, again, about Flynn. Acting AG Yates had information about Flynn's Russian contacts with individuals inside the Russian Govt.; about his financial ties; that Flynn had lied to VP Pence; and that Flynn was vulnerable to blackmail by the Russians. Trump ignored this evidence. He kept Flynn in the job of National Security Adviser for almost three more weeks, only firing him when news of Flynn's ties to Russia broke publicly. Rest assured: President Obama and Acting AG Yates were not the only people warning Trump about Flynn. Doubtless Trump received other briefings from classified sources such as the CIA and FBI director, warning him of Flynn's compromised position. We just haven't heard about them. Yet. Trump didn't care that his Natl. Security Advisor was compromised. He only cared that the American public found out about it. Whatever business or other ties to the Russian Government, or other foreign powers, Donald Trump may have - we simply don't know at this point. Trump's refusal to release his tax returns and provide other customary documentation makes this impossible to know. But the fact that Trump would continue to keep Michael Flynn in such a crucial role; with access to our Nation's most closely guarded secrets; tells us very clearly that Trump lacks the basic judgement and common sense necessary to act in the best interests of our Country. Trump's actions tell us that his priority is protecting those around him, his toadies and lickspittles, over the interests of the American people. This will not end well.
