The Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday is reporting that President Trump’s firing of national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn was not simply a falling out between the two over poor communication on Flynn’s part: It was a long-planned scheme to shut Flynn up before he could expose the truth about a key element of Obama’s legacy.
According to inside sources — the Beacon did not release their identities — a group of Obama loyalists headed by former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes has been attacking Flynn’s credibility in an effort to end his career.
During a White House press conference Tuesday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said an “eroding level of trust” led to Trump asking Flynn to resign Monday evening, but according to these sources, Obama loyalists having been laying the groundwork to destroy Flynn for months because Flynn is a huge opponent of Obama’s Iran nuclear deal.
The controversial deal lifted nuclear sanctions on Iran as long as they promised not to use their nuclear capabilities for weapons.
"It's undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him," said one of the sources, a veteran national security adviser close to the White House.
The Beacon’s sources also say that Flynn was about to expose troubling details with Obama’s Iran nuclear deal.
Unnamed White House National Security Council official said, "The drumbeat of leaks of sensitive material related to General Flynn has been building since he was named to his position. Last night was not the result of a series of random events. The president has lost a valuable adviser and we need to make sure this sort of thing does not happen again."
