A new security chief?

FauxNews has a story on the 'illegal' leaks and the Flynn resignation which contains this presidential twit:

Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc? 7:28 AM - 14 Feb 2017

No, Donnie ... this is the 'real story:'

"Such conversations would breach diplomatic protocol and possibly violate the Logan Act, a law aimed at keeping private citizens from conducting U.S. diplomacy. The Justice Department also had warned the White House late last month that Flynn could be in a compromised position because of contradictions between his public depictions of the calls and what intelligence officials knew to be true based on routine recordings of communications with foreign officials who are in the U.S."

Nice try at deflecting, though. It didn't work for Nixon, and it isn't going to work for Ol' Heel Spurs, either.

Perhaps the GOP could get Ol' Heel Spurs' bestest buddy, Julian Assange, to chase down the leaks? Ol' Heel Spurs liked Wikileaks before the election; perhaps he should hire Assange as a security consultant?

Where is the Colorado congressional delegation on all this?

And, come the midterms, are Lisa and I going to find ourselves once again going out into the courthouse parking lot and vomiting after voting for the garbage presented as candidates by either party?
