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. "Michael Flynn was one of the Obama administration's fiercest critics after he was forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency," said Lake, who described "the political assassination of Michael Flynn" in his column published early Tuesday. "[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." But when Flynn was chosen by Trump as National Security Advisor, Obama loyalists knew that their "sacred deal" was at risk of being exposed and took steps to preemptively discredit him at all costs. 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. America may have a major development into why the deep state in Washington and the media did everything they could to get Flynn to step down. Earlier in the day Hillary Clinton tweeted out a PizzaGate reference to General Flynn, and now we have the possibility that General Flynn was set to release documents of the treason that was the Obama administrations Iran nuke deal. From Flynn exposing PizzaGate to being ready to releasing secret Iran nuke deal documents, it's no wonder why the media, deep state, and Democrats did a major smear of General Flynn. Now it doesn't even seem like his contact with his Russian counterparts was the main reason Democrats and the media wanted Flynn out, because it seems they didn't want the Iran nuke deal or the pedophilia network exposed...Which is likely what Flynn was willing to do very shortly under Trump. Of course the media and Democrats are using his Russian phone call conversation to smear him, but they won't mention the real reason why Flynn was smeared by the entire deep state...Due to his willingness to release Iran nuke deal documents and pedogate.
