Mike Flynn's Resignation Is The First Domino To Fall In Trump's Russia Scandal Nightmare

Source: PoliticusUSA, by Jason Easley

Trump hopes that the resignation of Mike Flynn represents the end of the Russian scandal, but it is likely the first domino to fall in a nightmare that has the potential to destroy a president.

Flynn wasnít only an appointee. He was a constant presence and a regular warm up act at Trumpís campaign rallies. In his letter, Flynn positions himself as a person who made a mistake, but the truth of the matter is that Flynnís ties to Russia were never in doubt and regularly reported on during the presidential campaign.

The Trump administration is throwing Flynn under the bus and hoping that they can rely on the one bad apple defense to make the Russia scandal go away. Flynnís resignation is likely to have the opposite impact. Congressional investigations, especially in the Senate, are only going to have their curiosity heightened by the resignation.

The Russia scandal just got real, as Mike Flynn was the first person to get thrown under the bus, but the bigger questions remain unanswered, and they center around the man occupying the Oval Office.

Trumpís Russia nightmare is about to get a whole lot worse.
