    Virtually anyone could find ways to streamline the government.

    Yep. . .under this president, just curtailing his and his family's vacations or giving him a "per dium" for his vacation budget would curtail not only the cost but also the need for so much secret service and transportation requirement!

    He is there because Trump can trust him..and he does what he is told..Just my opinion.. remember when Obama appointed 45 czars to replace elected officials

    Were any of President Obama's "czars" meeting repeatedly with Russian bankers in a bank that had been black listed by the United States?

    Hillary and Bill took care of all that..http://www.weeklystandard.com/hillarys-russia-connection/article/2004790.. but with all that there is still no evidence..you need to go back and research some of the czars..

    I guess that is why Putin HATES Hillary Clinton so much, right?
    This (if true!) looks like small potatoes compared to the oil and real estate deals between Trump and Co. and Putin!

    By the way, did you read that article about a handful of Russian "businessmen" purchasing $98.5 millions real estate ONLY in Trump's towers?

    We will never know what that "investment" is about! What is for certain, is that Trump did benefit greatly from it!

    What do you think about Flynn asking (and being refused) immunity to testify?

    On this one I agree with him.. (even if he feels he's done nothing wrong) no attorney worth a dime would let him walk into this with out it. I believe Flynn spoke with the Russian ambassador and told the Trump team he had not.. I also think he would like to get it out there, what that conversation was about so the American people want think the worse of a man who dedicated his life in service of the USA..

    I don't agree. . .I believe Flynn talked to SEVERAL Russians spies, and he was doing so with the complete knowledge of not only Bannon but Trump. And he is ready to talk. He already took the fall for them. . .and now he has nothing to lose.

    But. . .he will probably be dead before he testifies. . . . as someone (I don't remember whom) said: "probably a suicide with two bullets in the back of his head!"

    By the way. . ."dedicated his life in service of the USA?" What about his job as a "foreign agent?"
    Disgraced Trump adviser Mike Flynn admits he worked as a “foreign ...

    And why do you think President Obama decided to fire him?

    "The center of a storm is a familiar place for Flynn. His military career ended when Obama dismissed him as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014. Flynn has said he was pushed out for holding tougher views than Obama about Islamic extremism. But a former senior U.S. official said the firing was for insubordination, after Flynn failed to follow guidance from superiors.

    Out of government, he disappeared into the murky world of mid-level defense contractors and international influence peddlers. In December 2015, he appeared at a Moscow banquet headlined by Russian President Vladimir Putin. In 2016, Flynn, a lifelong if apolitical Democrat, became a trusted and eager confidant of Trump, joining anti-Hillary Clinton campaign chants of "Lock Her Up" and tweeting that "Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL."

    Wait awhile. . .the proof is coming!

    Actually, Flynn couldn't work with his department. . .if you had read the article I posted, you would know. Flynn was pro-Russia and very Islamophobic.

    I guess. . .very much like his puppet masters, Bannon and Trump!

    And did you hear the latest about his not declaring the money he received from companies in Russia?

    Michael Flynn did not disclose income from Russian companies, White ...

    I know all of that, and I read the article, try reading mine. What your going to find out is, the white house was listening to Trump and his teams conversations whether intentional or not, and that Flynn is guilty of what we already know..
