Flynn as dinner guest with Putin: Of course there was follow up!

There's absolutely no such thing as "coincidental seating" at an official state dinner. In fact, there's no such thing "period" at any invitation only event, like at the dinner pictured with (now) National Security Adviser, Director Michael Flynn and Russia's President Vladimir Putin, who was a serial murderer former KGB operative. (Although this photograph wasn't taken when Flynn was appointed to NSA,  he certainly has been collecting defense department benefits as a retired Army officer.)

Michael Thomas "Mike" Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who was the 18th Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the 25th and current National Security Advisor (gulp!) to Donald Trump. (Seated with Russia's Vladimir Putin, but, of course, Flynn said he never spoke with the man....oh, really? This picture is real. Obviously, the lie about "not communicating with Russia" is certainly inexcusable because, customarily, there must've been follow up, after dinner. There always is.)

Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee questioned about whether Flynn should be allowed to stay in his job.

Allegation that Flynn spoke about sanctions relief with the Russians (and even spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin!) “raises serious questions about his legality and fitness for office,” Mr. Schiff said in a statement. 

“If he did so, and then he and other administration officials misled the American people, his conduct would be all the more pernicious, and he should no longer serve in this administration or any other.”“This disclosure highlights just one in a series of decisions made by Flynn both during his military service and as a private citizen that give rise to questions concerning his suitability for continued access to classified information,” the senators, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, said in a letter to Jim Mattis, the secretary of defense, and Mike Pompeo, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. (C.I.A).

Investigations are examining intercepted communications and financial transactions as part of a broad inquiry into possible links between Russian officials and associates of Mr. Trump. (Violations of the Logan Act, in Federal Law.)

Maine Writer:  There's no doubt, in my mind, about how the dinner conversation between Vladimir Putin and Mike Flynn evolved. They clearly connected. Otherwise, they wouldn't have been seated in close proximity to each other- state dinners are always strategic events.
