The sudden resignation of retired General Michael Flynn has some speculating that Barack Obama’s fingerprints are all over an effort to remove Flynn as National Security Adviser.
It is no secret that Obama and his loyalists – many who still remain in positions at the State Department and other government agencies – have no love for Flynn. Obama fired Flynn back in 2014 after contradicting Obama regarding radical Islamic terrorism.
The subsequent leaks of conversations that Flynn had with Russia’s ambassador could very easily be the orchestrated efforts of Obama’s minions to remove Flynn and, more importantly undermine President Trump’s administration.
Rush Limbaugh went as far as to say on his program today, “the question is, what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it and what has he engineered here?”
Below is a partial transcript of Limbaugh’s show”
RUSH: Everybody just calm down, just calm down. All of this was predicted to you, every bit of this was predicted to you. I mean the media behavior. To show you just how lame the media is and how little they’ve got, they’re already asking what did Trump know and when did he know it, and that’s not the question. The question is, what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it and what has he engineered here?
This all happened with Flynn back in December. Trump had not even been inaugurated yet. And it’s still mysterious to me what really happened. Even if, even if Flynn, as the incoming national security director, had called the Russian ambassador to talk, so what? That’s not hard to imagine. That’s not a big deal. It really isn’t a big deal.
Now, if he lied to Mike Pence and said, “No, no, no, I didn’t talk to the guy. I didn’t talk to the guy about sanctions. I didn’t talk about maybe lifting the sanctions. No, no, no, I didn’t.” And, if he did do that, if he lied to Pence, then, okay, there’s a reason for Flynn to be in trouble and maybe to resign, get out of the way. But for the media to say what did Trump know and when did he know it? Get a grip here, folks.
