David Petraeus for National Security Advisor?

(Before It's News)

So the hunt is on for a replacement to the National Security Advisor position, now vacant, after Michael Flynn was forced to resign on Monday evening.

The word from the Washington Examiner is that President Trump and his top advisers will talk with retired General David Petraeus this week about possibly taking on the position.

Trump regularly referenced Petraeus during his campaign speeches last year, telling guests at rallies that the former general was punished more severely for leaking classified information to his mistress than former State Sec. Hillary Clinton was reprimanded for setting up a private email server.

Trump had briefly considered Petraeus for secretary of state. He passed over him due to the earlier incident and the problems that might create with confirmation in the Senate, a hurdle which is not in the way for national security advisor.

Michael Flynn stepped down after it was discovered that he spoke with a Russian ambassador about the sanctions the U.S. was levying against Russia, in response to the nation’s suspected interference in the 2016 election.

When confronted about it by Vice President Pence, Flynn was apparently not completely truthful.

VP Pence went to bat for him on several programs, only to find out later that he’d been lied to.

For the time being, retired Lt. General Keith Kellogg is in as acting National Security Advisor.

  • Flynn was the patriotic general that caught the treasonous Obama/Clinton group arming ISIS
    via Benghazi and Flynn also was trying to avert a WW3 that the central bankers want to use for
    their reason of a worldwide economic reset/collapse. Since Flynn is a good guy he has no reason to
    be in our Zionist banker owned government. The majority of men like Flynn were already purged from
    the military by the racist, illegal, sodomite Obama. That was a necessary step to push forward with
    the planned destruction of America from within and then leading to a WW3 as demanded by the
    Jewish central bankers. With the full help of the Jewish media and Soros those like Flynn who are
    patriotic are being systematically removed from holding office. While the Obama regime filled his
    cabinet with traitors that were eagerly confirmed by RINOS Trump is being met with vehement
    opposition to any candidate that is not communist or globalist is nature. Flynn leaving will be the
    greatest danger to Trump to date.

    • Isn’t General Betrayus an evil Bilderberger ? :twisted:
