Last Monday, Michael Flynn was forced to resign from his position of National Security Advisor after a series of illegal leaks showed that he was in contact with the Russian Ambassador before Donald Trump was inaugurated. Now, it’s been revealed that these leaks were a result of a secret, months-long campaign by former Barack Obama administration confidantes to handicap Trump’s national security team and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that this effort included former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes and a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility. This was revealed by multiple White House sources after Flynn’s resignation.
The main focus of the operation was on discrediting Flynn, who was known to be against the Iran deal, and making it difficult for the Trump administration to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration. The Obama loyalists spent the months before Trump’s inauguration plotting ways to set up roadblocks for his national security team.
“It’s undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him,” said one veteran national security adviser with close ties to the White House team. “This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters.”
“It’s actually Ben Rhodes, NIAC, and the Iranian mullahs who are celebrating today,” added a veteran foreign policy insider who is close to Flynn and the White House. “They know that the number one target is Iran … [and] they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”
