Flynn resigns as America’s new Red Scare proves its staying power

Source: Roll Call

“Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s mercurial national security adviser, submitted his resignation late Monday amidst growing controversy over his communications with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Flynn wrote in his resignation letter that he provided ‘incomplete information’ about conversations with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Critics are questioning whether top Trump Administration officials were misled, lied to — or perhaps complicit. And beyond the disruption caused by the resignation of a senior official so early in a new administration, the circumstances surrounding Flynn’s departure will almost certainly increase scrutiny of others in Trump’s inner circle who allegedly have ties to Russia.
