Flynn Resignation Raises Tough Questions for FBI, Intel ServicesAnd if you think Breitbart is more extreme than the outlet it's trying to replace as the right's media source of record, Fox News, here's Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends this morning:
The resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Monday evening raises troubling questions about the role of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the intelligence services.
... [Flynn] was “caught” because the Department of Justice had been eavesdropping on the conversation....
Democrats are clamoring for a deeper investigation of Russian ties to Trump. But the more serious question is whether our nation’s intelligence services were involved in what amounts to political espionage against the newly-elected government.
We know that there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of federal bureaucrats already using shadow communications systems. How far does that “shadow government” go?
The FBI, CIA and other agencies ought to reassure Congress, or come clean.
DOOCY: There are a number of major U.S. papers that apparently got the leaks from the intel community that said, "Hey, look, we've got the transcript of what Mr. Flynn said to the Russian ambassador," and, uh, looks kinda shady. Just the fact that there are these leaks inside the permanent government is troubling.And ostensibly over on the left, here's a tweet from Young Turks reporter Michael Tracey that was, unsurprisingly, retweeted by Glenn Greenwald:
And, of course, there's WikiLeaks:
Trump's National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigns after destabilization campaign by US spies, Democrats, press https://t.co/vKlX1Tqek1— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) February 14, 2017
Right, WikiLeaks is appalled that anyone would engage in a "destabilization campaign."
To sum up: We're not supposed to be upset at Flynn's phone calls, or the policy they were in the service of. We're not supposed to worry about how many other Trumpers are colluding with the Russians. The villains here are the "Deep State," the Democrats, and the media. And that'll be the right-wing line and the liberal-hating-left line going forward.
