Can someone explain the Michael Flynn issue to me? All I am reading is "Michael Flynn discussed sanctions with Russia and then mislead the Whitehouse and said that he didn't discuss sanctions…". Obviously I can understand that at face value, but what is this really saying?

admittedly left wing, but should give you the coles notes.

Thanks - that adds a lot more detail/context. Everything I was reading on the news was overly vague.

Wonder if anything further will come of this? The GQ video makes it seem like it could be a big deal.

Thank goodness. Especially now that they're going to replace him with Saunders or Warren.

I'm going to put on my tinfoil hat and think that something bigger is in the works while we watch this Trump freak show. Has to be a distraction, all of a sudden Bill Cosby news is no longer in the headlines… this is getting weird.

I do find the left wings paranoia of anything to do with Russia somewhat amusing.

I realize the danger Putin poses, his ambitions, his history.

But are we to seriously believe that there is a vast conspiracy here of Russian double agents, with Donald Trump as their leader, taking over the White House, and selling the US to Russia? Is this where the narrative leads?

Not to mention this doesn't at all fit with Trumps anti-China narrative, considering the close ties between Russia and China.

This sounds about as realistic as all the Far Right wing theories about Sandy Hook being a false flag.

The most tragic thing about Trump is not him, or his comments, or anything else directly related to him- whats truly tragic is that his election really exposed just how divided the US is, and instead of getting better its only getting more polarized.

If evidence comes out that Trump was in the loop or in any way coordinating this communication with the Russians, then it has the potential to be a very big scandal.

Now, whether or not the Republican controlled house or senate would agree and/or act is another question entirely.

No, what's truly tragic is that it really exposed how dismal the actors in this farce are.

He has loosed his fateful lightning, and with woe and death has scored

His lust is marching on.

Totally agree, everyday there is a new controversy, its like Faulty Towers at the White House.

Spicer was lying at the news conference; he stutters when he's trying to make up an excuse.

Trump is blaming leaks from the WH. He can do no wrong…

Washington resignation Ruffles Russia

The resignation of an American national security adviser had Russian politicians reacting furiously and jumping to Michael Flynn's defence.

At the upper house of the Russian parliament, senator Alexei Pushkov tweeted that Mr Flynn was the victim of "paranoia and a witch hunt".

…LOL…?

Ride, don't slide.
