Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, President Donald J. Trump’s National Security Advisor, has resigned after reports he misled Vice President over conversations with a Russian ambassador. He is now the shortest serving National Security Advisor in history, and was targeted by liberals and their media allies since he was named to the post.
The Justice Department (DOJ) had warned the Trump administration that the situation left Gen. Flynn potentially vulnerable to blackmail, according to reports. However, it was under the now-disgraced acting attorney general Sally Yates and Gen. Flynn was cleared of wrongdoing by an FBI probe.
Still, he was not fired by the president, but rather offered his resignation and the president accepted it.
