Russians and alt right call Flynn’s forced resignation a ‘coup’ undermining Russia-U.S. relations

IBT reports: The resignation of President Trump’s pro-Russia National Security Adviser has sent a shudder through Russia’s political class who are commenting that the move will damage already fragile US-Russia relations further.

“This is kind of a negative signal for the establishment of the Russian-American dialogue,” said Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the lower committee on international affairs in Russia’s parliament. Trump’s adviser, retired general Michael Flynn resigned late on Monday just three weeks into the new administration.

“It’s obvious that Flynn was forced to write the letter of resignation under a certain amount of pressure,” Slutsky told Russian state newswire TASS.

Slutsky called the forced resignation “provocative” and that Flynn had been targeted to harm “Russia-US relations, undermining confidence in the new US administration,” he said. [Continue reading…]

One thought on “Russians and alt right call Flynn’s forced resignation a ‘coup’ undermining Russia-U.S. relations

    The fact that the White House received confidential information from the Department of Justice in January that secretary Flynn could be trouble shows that Slutsky does not know what he is talking about. To turn a confidential information into a “provocative” act sounds like a residue from Stalin’s days.
    Flynn was confirmed on January 20, 2017. I do not know whether the WH was warned before or after that date. The WH knew either before or soon after January 20 that there was a problem well before Flynn “had been (publicly) targeted to harm “Russia-US relations”. By allowing Flynn’s pertinent lies to persist publicly for much too long the WH and not some of our nation created the “negative signal”. This member of the Russian parliament has the gall to insult America. Perhaps his visitor’s visa, if he has one, should be revoked by our President.
