It then makes complete sense then that …
At the Republican National Convention in July, Flynn called on Clinton to drop out of the race for putting “our nation’s security at extremely high risk with her careless use of a private email server.” He egged on the partisan crowd in chants of “lock her up,” adding: “If I, a guy who knows this business, if I did a tenth, a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail today.”
Absolutely, so long as that jail looks like an office in the West Wing of the White House, where Flynn will be privileged to handle the most highly classified material.
What exactly did Flynn share?
The documents do not reveal the nature of the information. But former U.S. officials familiar with the case said it centered on slides and other materials containing classified information about CIA operations in Afghanistan.
So … general statistics and conclusions, or things that might have been used to identify and remove US agents in the field? That’s not revealed.
But at least it was only once. Right?
The episode marked the second time in a year that Flynn had drawn official complaints for his handling of classified material.
That other incident? Flynn spilled the beans on US intelligence capabilities in Pakistan. A little slip that might also have put assets, including human assets, at risk.
But of course, all of this falls well under the top security clearance of It’s Okay If You’re A Republican.
Flynn’s son has issued the definitive not-at-all-a-threat to the First Amendment as he took a slap at the Washington (com)Post for sharing that “Fake News” from the United States Army.
