A Hit Dog Howls
... inadvertently... incomplete information.
"I'm sorry, Honey. I inadvertently got drunk after work last night, and I'm harboring some incomplete information on why I didn't get home until 5 a.m."
Let's be blunt: Flynn, like a good soldier, fell on his own sword rather than give up his boss as the Colluder-in-Chief with the Russians. We've got presumed treason of the highest order and a completely subverted democratic system, and what do we hear? "I inadvertently gave incomplete information." The real message: "I lied so that President Trump's involvement in Russian subversion could go undetected."
If you think that Donald Trump didn't know what Michael Flynn was doing, you're more gullible than you look.
At the moment, the only thing that makes any sense as an explanation for this bizarre behavior by Donald Trump -- the repeated, fawning praise of Vladimir Putin and the decision to allow Flynn to defenestrate himself over "incomplete information" -- is the presumption that Putin has some dirt on Trump that is so awful, it would bring down this entire administration a bare three weeks into its existence.
Which takes us back to the dossier compiled by the former British secret service agent -- that Putin has video of Trump acting like ... Trump in a Moscow hotel room, the stuff that Trump howled "fake news" about like a hit dog.
