Flynn, fired once by a president, now resigns to another

Flynn resignsFired by one American commander in chief for insubordination, Michael Flynn has now delivered his resignation to another.  President Donald Trump had been weighing the fate of his national security adviser, a hard-charging, feather-ruffling retired lieutenant general who just three weeks into the new administration had put himself in the center of a controversy.

Flynn resigned late Monday.

At issue was Flynn's contact with Moscow's ambassador to the United States. Flynn and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak appear to have discussed U.S. sanctions late last year, raising questions about whether he was freelancing on foreign policy while President Barack Obama was still in office and whether he misled Trump officials about the calls.

Justice Department warned White House that Flynn could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail

Mike FlynnThe acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said.

The message, delivered by Sally Q. Yates and a senior career national security official to the White House counsel, was prompted by concerns that ­Flynn, when asked about his calls and texts with the Russian diplomat, had told Vice ­President-elect Mike Pence and others that he had not discussed the Obama administration sanctions on Russia for its interference in the 2016 election, the officials said. It is unclear what the White House counsel, Donald McGahn, did with the information.

AP FACT CHECK: Trump aide pushes false story of vote fraud

Stephen MillerPresidential adviser Stephen Miller peddled discredited theories about voter fraud during a round of TV appearances Sunday that won praise from his boss but brought no new evidence to light.

Miller mischaracterized research about wrongly registered voters and spread a debunked claim that busloads of Democrats came into New Hampshire and voted improperly in the November election. His Sunday morning performance on news shows earned him a "Good job!" on Twitter from President Donald Trump, who alleged days earlier that he lost New Hampshire in November only because "thousands" of people came by bus to vote against him.

Trump impeached? You can bet on it

Odds for Trump impeachmentThere’s already talk of impeachment, just three weeks into Donald Trump’s turbulent presidency. In fact, many are already betting on it.

Gambling houses all over the world are taking in action on whether Trump, inaugurated just last month, will resign or be impeached. And the odds aren’t as long as you might think.

Ladbrokes, the British oddsmaking giant, has Trump’s chances of leaving office via resignation or impeachment and removal at just 11-to-10, or just a little worse than even money. The odds of Trump being impeached this year in the House of Representatives are only 4-to-1, according to the Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, despite GOP control of the chamber. You can win $180 on a $100 bet with Bovada, the online gaming site, that Trump won’t make it through a full term — though the bet is off if Trump passes away during the next four years.

FEC official wants proof of New Hampshire voter fraud claims

Trump lies about NH voter fraudPresident Trump reportedly claimed during a meeting with lawmakers Thursday that out-of-state voters were bused into New Hampshire, costing him and Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte a victory in the state. Now a Federal Election Commission official wants Trump to prove it.

Trump got 46.5% of the vote, compared to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's 46.8%. She received the state's four electoral votes. Such an allegation would mean that thousands of people illegally voted in New Hampshire — a felony under New Hampshire law, commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub said in a statement Friday afternoon.
