First Trump is nominated, receives occasional security briefings and continues in that behavior into his election. Who was getting the nuclear codes?
As far as I am concerned, Donald Trump disconnected from the security of the USA long ago when he was disinterested in daily security briefings. National security is in the job description of the President. Donald Trump refused to handle the national security of the USA and handed it over to Flynn. It seems obvious to me.
These Ultra Whites don't believe the President and Commander and Chief should be the same person. What briefing on reality did the media forget to attend?
This is the radical right in the White House. Does anyone think Vladimir Putin was sitting on his hands to be polite in conversations with Flynn? Really? These were just ordinary diplomatic contacts? Really?
The head of national security of the USA is in talks with a Russia President while the President of the USA ignores national security and shifts the entire focus to a wall with Mexico. That is not treason?
What's Flynn's defense? "Someone had to do it."

In a joint statement, Representative John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, and Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said, “We in Congress need to know who authorized his actions, permitted them and continued to let him have access to our most sensitive national security information despite knowing these risks. We need to know who else within the White House is a current and ongoing risk to our national security.”...
