Security analyst: Trump nominee Mike Flynn should step aside until Russia questions are resolved

Published

Security and intelligence expert Malcom Nance called for Pres. Donald Trump’s nominee for national security adviser Gen. Mike Flynn to step aside until questions about his connections to the Russian government are resolved.

Nance appeared on Saturday’s AM Joy to discuss the fact that Flynn appears to have lied about the extent of his contact with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak regarding the lifting of U.S. sanctions.

Nance said that Flynn is far beyond the pale of what is normally considered acceptable for government employees of his rank.

“Any person in the United States who has a Top Secret or higher special access program clearance would have had their clearance pulled by now. They would be strapped to a polygraph getting a full lifestyle counter-intelligence polygraph and they would be cleaning their tail, as we say, to determine was this person misusing his position?”

“At a minimum,” Nance said, “he should lose his clearance.”

“For Flynn as a man of honor, he should step away and say, ‘Until this is cleared up, I shouldn’t have access to any more classifieds,'” Nance said.

The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.

In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’

Published

on

Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.

To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.

Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
