In recent days, a cloud of controversy has hung over the Donald Trump administration in the form of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. After Flynn abruptly announced his resignation on Thursday night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to offer her thoughts.

Clinton on Flynn

When President Donald Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November to become the new commander in chief, it was only a matter of time before the billionaire real estate mogul started to announce the team that would end up surrounding him in the White House.

One member of that team was retired Gen. Michael Flynn, who was added as the national security adviser. While it was expected that Democrats would be critical of Flynn due to his strong opposition to radical Islam, it was reports linking the general to Russia that acted as the final straw. As seen on her Twitter account on February 14, Clinton decided to chime in.

Former advisor to Hillary Clinton, Philippe Reines, took to his Twitter account and decided to troll Michael Flynn, targeting his promotion of the debunked conspiracy "Pizzagate" story that alleged the Clintons were involved in a child sex traffic scandal based out of the Comet pizza shop.

"Dear Mike Flynn & Mike Flynn Jr., What goes around COMETS around," Reines tweeted. In response, Clinton shared Reines tweet, while adding a comment of her own. "Philippe's got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news...," Clinton wrote on Twitter.

Flynn's last days

The story that ended Michael Flynn's short time in the White House was when he allegedly spoke to Russian officials about lifting sanctions against them, which were put in place by then President Barack Obama.

At the time, Flynn was still a private citizen, which would violate the Logan Act that forbids unauthorized individuals from negotiating with foreign governments on behalf of the United States.

Recent reports suggest that Flynn was dishonest about the incident during a conversation with Vice President Mike Pence, which only added to the pressure. As of press time, Donald Trump has not offered a public comment on Flynn's resignation, but a statement is expected in shortly.
