When Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn got the job of President-elect Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, a bigger target was put on his back. Why? Flynn was fired by Obama and had intended to expose the administration for several dirty deals, including the Iran deal.
Lt. Gen. Flynn was a loyal supporter of Donald Trump from the beginning of the 2016 campaign. He traveled with the President to rallies and spoke on behalf of Mr. Trump.
He’s a three-star general who spent 33 years in the U.S. Army who made the mistake of crossing the most corrupt president America has ever seen. Yes, Flynn was targeted by the Obama administration and the FBI for speaking out:
Andrew McCarthy asks the question in his book, Ball of Collusion, “Could anything have made the Obama administration giddier than the prospect of making a criminal case on Michael Flynn?”
Flynn is a retired Army lieutenant general, who made his mark on modern insurgent warfare by helping revolutionize the rapid dissemination of battlefield intelligence. He was promoted by President Obama to lead the Defense Intelligence Agency. He is also a headstrong man who got himself on Obama’s bad side by questioning counterterrorism strategy, particularly the administration’s weakness on Iran. He was detested by Obama’s political and national-security officials for calling them out on politicizing intelligence. The FBI was not a fan, least of all Deputy Director Andy McCabe, because Flynn had supported an agent who claimed the Bureau had subjected her to sex discrimination.
Gen. Flynn’s enemies reportedly described him as “disruptive” in the past but that fit right in with the Trump style of draining the swamp.
General Flynn had been a target of the left ever since he was forced out of the Obama administration and began to criticize the former president’s policies.
Former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael Flynn told al Jazeera’s Mehdi Hasan that Obama knew he was helping ISIS grow but decided to do it anyway. Flynn spoke about the decision to arm opposition to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. That the administration decided to continue despite warnings that those weapons would fall into the hands of radicals.
HASAN: You are basically saying that even in government at the time you knew these groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?
FLYNN: I think the administration.
HASAN: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?
FLYNN: I don’t know that they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.
HASAN: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood?
FLYNN: It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.
So, according to Gen. Flynn, Obama knew that he was arming ISIS.
Incredible. How is this not treason?

It was also well-known among insiders that exposing the Iran deal was at the top of Flynn’s agenda in the new administration:
“The Obama administration knew that Flynn was going to release the secret documents around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal that rolled back Iran,” a congressional aide with intimate knowledge of the fight over the Iran nuclear deal told The Washington Free Beacon. “So in December, the Obama NSC started going to work with their favorite reporters, selectively leaking damaging and incomplete information about Flynn.”
“After Trump was inaugurated, some of those people stayed in, and some began working from the outside, and they cooperated to keep undermining Trump,” the aide added, referencing the series of leaks from within the White House targeting Flynn and others. “Last night’s resignation was their first major win, but unless the Trump people get serious about cleaning house, it won’t be the last.”
