TRUMP’S CIA DIRECTOR FED FLYNN SECRETS DESPITE GOV’T CONSENSUS THAT HE WAS LIKELY COMPROMISED

Director of Central Intelligence Mike Pompeo kept telling former national security adviser Mike Flynn secrets even after officials believed that he had been likely been compromised according to the New York Times.

Amazingly, Director Pompeo kept feeding Mr. Flynn secrets even after a government consensus had formed that the former national security adviser was a likely target of Russian blackmail. Even more explosive – the former national security adviser led the country’s security framework despite its own members knowing all of this.

“Either Director Pompeo had no idea what people in the C.I.A. reportedly knew about Michael Flynn, or he knew about the Justice Department’s concerns and continued to discuss America’s secrets with a man vulnerable to blackmail,” Senator Ron Wyden of Washington said during testimony.

Mr. Flynn had a spotty record prior to President Trump’s inauguration.

President Obama fired him and he was already under investigation during the transition.

Six days into the President’s tenure, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates warned White House counsel that Russia likely had compromising information on Mr. Flynn Despite this warning, the President waited nearly three weeks before firing him.

The President only moved to fire Mr. Flynn after a story in the Washington Post alleged that Mr. Flynn had been in touch with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak and spoken with him about U.S. sanctions. This in itself was not problematic, the issue was that Mr. Flynn then reportedly lied to the Vice President about the nature and contents of the conversation.

When Mike Pompeo was asked in testimony if he knew of his agency’s concerns about Mr. Flynn, he evaded the question.

“I can’t answer yes or no,” the Director said. “I regret that I’m unable to do so.”
