MSNBC host Rachel Maddow lost no time Monday night piling on the wave of criticism of former National Security Adviser Micheal Flynn.
“His role in this administration was always a little strange because he’s so bombastic, because he’s so ungeneral-like in his partisanship, because he showed willingness to flirt with the conspiratorial and radical edges,” Maddow said of the thirty-three year U.S. Army veteran, who resigned as NSA Monday night.
Even Maddow seemed shocked over just how quickly the latest round of allegations, which surfaced in the Washington Post earlier Monday night, had resulted in General Flynn’s ouster. “I can’t stress enough how strange it is to have him out while we simultaneously have this news…that the White House was advised last month that he had lied about his contacts with the Russian government.”
Maddow was quick to suggest wrongdoing by all corners of the Trump Administration and implied a cover-up. “Apparently everybody else was okay with that…it wasn’t till that advice that they got privately…became publicly reported that they saw it as actionable.”
She closed by making it clear that, as she sees it, this story has the potential to go much further and include criminal charges. “They were apparently okay with him serving as national security adviser knowing that he had contacts, potentially illegal contacts…That just means the scandal around Flynn doesn’t end with him leaving.”
