Yesterday's abrupt decision by General Michael Flynn to resign his position as National Security Adviser has thrown Washington, DC into turmoil. The turmoil is caused in large part by confirmed reports that as much as three weeks ago, Sally Yates, then Acting U.S. Attorney General had confirmed to the Trump White House that Flynn did in fact discuss U.S. Sanctions with the Russian Ambassador(a potential violation of the Logan Act) and wasn't being forthright about it. In essence the Justice Department was flashing a major "Proceed with Caution" sign to the Trump Administration regarding Gen. Flynn. The logical question now being raised by the media and the public is why such a dire warning went unheeded for weeks? The famous Watergate question comes to mind, "What did the President know, and when did he know it."? 
However aside from all the political intrigue that is a staple of Washington DC, Gen. Flynn's exit provides a unique opportunity for "Emoluments Clause" enthusiasts--Americans who have clamored for an investigation into whether the President's foreign business dealings could be used to manipulate his policy decisions. This question was front and center during the recent Travel Ban when critics argued that some Muslim nations were not included in the ban list because the President had businesses there. Previous attempts to have Congress look into whether the President is violating the "Emoluments Clause" have landed on deaf ears because the President's Republican Party is in control of both Chambers of Congress(House and Senate). The only avenue left to pursue "Emoluments Clause" violations has been the U.S. Federal Courts
Gen. Flynn's abrupt exit and the serious national security questions it leaves behind will undoubtedly lead to some kind of Congressional hearings. This could potentially provide answers to the exact extent of Gen. Flynn dealings with the Russian Government. As is common with Congressional hearings, there is always an unintended revelation. Reasonable people will agree that at the very least a deep probe into Gen.Flynn's dealings with the Russians may "accidentally" give us an insight into the President's dealings with Russia too. Simply stated, it will be "Congressional Malpractice" if a Democrat Member of Congress failed to raise questions about the President's businesses in Russia. Until then "Emoluments Clause" enthusiasts can only anxiously wait.

Whatever is happening to our country, I put it in God's hand. I've read some article about this and some of it said that this is a negative sign. I don't know what will happen, but I trust and have faith in God. I know that there is a purpose why our leader is like that. I will not lose hope. I will continue to pray for our country.

I hope that the people will know everything, why General Michael Flynn have connections with the Russian people. Another question that needs to be answered is why he lied to the FBI about his connections. Allegation about him is starting to rise because of what he did. And the main question is does President Donald Trump knows about General Flynn's connection. Those are some questions that people should know the answers.

There will always be a segment for political issues as we watch or read the news every day. There are a lot of sensitive and relevant topics to be discussed. We can spend all day talking about politics. Just last week, I wrote a speech for a debate regarding the advantages and disadvantages of having Donald Trump as the President of the United States of America. The debate became a little intense but it is refreshing to hear different points of views from today’s youth.
