Flynn was in Communication with the Russians During the Campaign
Yesterday the Washington Post, the New York Times, and CNN reported that multiple US intelligence sources had confirmed that Flynn was in communication with the Russians during the campaign. This directly contradicted statements made by President Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn, White House spokesman Sean Spicer, and Vice President Mike Pence. Hours after the stories had broken, Trump was asked about it on Air Force One on his way to Mar-a-Lago with the Japanese PM. Strangely, he denied he had heard anything about the allegations.
Specific details of the conversations were limited to Flynn discussing sanctions with the Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak in December. This means the Trump administration were collaborating with Russia to undermine US foreign policy. Trump’s national security advisor had denied that ever happened, as had Sean Spicer and Mike Pence. This is the story that ended up in all the headlines yesterday, but since the Logan Act has never been enforced, it may not be the most significant.
The arguably more important revelation was that several of the sources confirmed that Flynn’s communications with the Russian government were also taking place during the campaign. This means Flynn was communicating with the Russians while they were interfering in our elections. Remember, President Obama and other senior government officials clearly stated that the Russian interference in our elections was an act of war against the United States. Any American collaborating with the enemy while it is at war with the United States, is an act of treason.
