Flynn Targeted for Destruction? He Opposed Obama Policies

In charging Gen. Michael Flynn, Mueller Turned a Policy Dispute into Criminal Activity (12/5/2018)
Via Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel:

So why was Flynn targeted for destruction? […]

He was first targeted for destruction at the end of the Obama administration, when as DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency] director, he appeared to publicly disagree with Obama’s policies about radical Islamic actors, resulting in his reported forced retirement from the military.

It appeared that the worst was over, but then Gen. Flynn entered the political arena, choosing to throw his support behind the man hated most by the legacy media: Donald J. Trump.

Obama Officials Waged Secret Campaign to Oust Flynn…planted series of stories to discredit Flynn, bolster Iran deal (2/14/2017)
Via The Washington Free Beacon:

The abrupt resignation … of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media. […]

Flynn had been preparing to publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal, these sources said. […]

Eli Lake, a Bloomberg View columnist and veteran national security reporter well sourced in the White House, told the Free Beacon that Flynn earned a reputation in the Obama administration as one of its top detractors. […]

“[Flynn] was a withering critic of Obama’s biggest foreign policy initiative, the Iran deal,” Lake said. “He also publicly accused the administration of keeping classified documents found in the Osama bin Laden raid that showed Iran’s close relationship with al Qaeda. He was a thorn in their side.”
