No trial for the criminal:

New York Daily News
Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may skate on some serious legal trouble. Flynn misled the FBI about discussing sanctions with a Russian diplomat ahead of President Trump’s inauguration, according to new reports Thursday. The denial could have meant criminal charges — lying to FBI agents is a felony — but investigators don’t believe Flynn intentionally lied, according to The Washington Post and CNN. Word of Flynn narrowly avoiding legal woes came as the man pegged to replace him turned down the position.

Yes, they worked for his victory and yes, they're glad it isn't Hillary. But they know bumbling when they see it. And they sure have a dossier on Trump too…

Trump is obsessed. Hillary Clinton has nothing to do with this.  His choice of words is revealing.  You can't "cover up" election results.  But he's obviously covering up his Administration's role in communicating with the Russians.  It's been shown multiple times how much Trump values loyalty.  For him to delay taking action against Flynn after finding out he lied to Pence means that Trump thought it was okay for Flynn to talk to the Russians and lie to Pence.  Trump's rage is because he got caught.

I am reminded of Nixon and Watergate except this is worse.

Firings and reassignments at NSA:

CNN

senior National Security Council adviser was reassigned to his old job at the National Defense University, a White House spokeswoman confirmed Sunday, after he criticized the Trump administration's Latin American policies. Craig Deare was removed from his role as a senior adviser at the National Security Council's Western Hemisphere division Friday and "sent back to his original position," said Sarah Sanders, a White House spokeswoman. Deare had been assigned to the NSC by the Trump administration. Deare reportedly knocked the Trump administration's handling of Latin American policies during a speech at The Wilson Center Thursday in Washington. He also criticized overall White House dysfunction, Politico reported based on a source. CNN could not independently confirm the account, and Deare did not respond to a request for comment. Fielding questions about Deare's reassignment, Sanders said that people who don't agree with President Donald Trump should not have a job in his White House.

McMaster sounds like a good choice for NSA.

From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._R._McMaster

Herbert Raymond "H. R." McMaster (born July 24, 1962) is an American soldier, a career officer in the U.S. Army, and is the National Security Advisor to President Donald J. Trump. His current assignment is Director, Army Capabilities Integration Center and Deputy Commanding General, Futures, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. His previous assignment was commander of the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Ft. Benning, Georgia. McMaster previously served as Director of Combined Joint Interagency Task Force-Shafafiyat (CJIATF-Shafafiyat) (Transparency) at ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) Headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan. He is known for his roles in the Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and his reputation for questioning U.S. policy and military leaders regarding the Vietnam War, which ended when McMaster was only 12...McMaster graduated from Valley Forge Military Academy in 1980, where he served as a company commander with the rank of cadet captain. He is a 1984 graduate of West Point, where he played rugby. He holds Master of Arts and Ph.D. degrees in American history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and authored a thesis critical of American strategy in the Vietnam War...He holds Master of Arts and Ph.D. degrees in American history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and authored a thesis critical of American strategy in the Vietnam War, which is detailed in his 1997 book Dereliction of Duty. It harshly criticizes high-ranking officers of that era, arguing that they inadequately challenged Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and President Lyndon Johnson on their Vietnam strategy. The book is widely read in Pentagon circles and is on the official reading list of the Marine Corps...During the Gulf War in 1991 he was a captain commanding Eagle Troop of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of 73 Easting. During that battle, though significantly outnumbered and encountering the enemy by surprise as McMaster's lead tank crested a dip in the terrain, the nine tanks of Eagle Troop destroyed over eighty Iraqi Republican Guard tanks and other vehicles without loss...McMaster was awarded the Silver Star...

Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster is known for critiquing the military's decision-making process. Expect him to deliver blunt advice to the president, says Andrew Exum.
