There is a lot wrong about the Flynn event. Admittedly, Flynn may have violated a dormant law in the Logan Act (I say "may" because we still do not know what was said between Flynn and the Russian Ambassador). But paramount in the wrong that is ongoing are two things.
First is the sensationalist way the media is covering the event. It's so over the top for what is tantamount to a non-story it's embarrassing.
Obama telegraphed an opposing foreign policy in 2008 while campaigning in foreign countries - namely Egypt and Germany, resulting in the violent overthrow of governments across the Middle East in the Arab Spring, and the media glorified him. Flynn's comments averted Russian retribution for dangerously provocative moves by Obama and he's demonized.
Hillary Clinton stored and trafficked the most classified information our country holds on a non-authorized and non-secure private email server. Intelligence experts have said it would be fantasy to believe that our enemies (read: Russia, Iran and China) hadn't captured that information by exploiting her actions. Yet the media ran a ruthless interference on Clinton's behalf going as far as to castigate any - any - effort to investigate and hold her accountable. Flynn, on the other hand, has not been accorded the same level of defense, and in light of the specifics of his conversation not being made public.
Second, no one is outraged - or even asking - about the serious federal felonies committed in acquiring information about said conversation and exposing that they even took place. Who gave the wiretap and surveillance orders? What judge/court authorized the wiretaps? Who exposed the signals intelligence? These are all questions an honest media would ask.
It is beyond obvious that holdovers from the Obama, and even Clinton, Administrations are responsible for the leaks. This is part of the bureaucratic swamp that is in desperate need of being drained, dismantled, destroyed, you pick the wording.
The President should immediately fire all Obama appointees in every agency and department related to the intelligence community and State Dept. Then purge the layer just below.
It would go a long way to de-politicizing what are supposed to be agencies and departments serving the American people, not political parties.
