Flynngate: Will Trump's Team Face Legal Sanctions?by

Another day and another set of dramatic turns take place at the height of US government. Divisive President Donald Trump, who was inaugurated last month, has hit headlines worldwide for recent executive orders such as the controversial barring of immigration from seven Muslim countries – an order which has since been blocked by a federal judiciary. His team, consisting of ex-Breitbart executive Steve Bannon, have also come under critical fire. Flynn, however, made a dramatic exit from Trump’s top team this week over communications the advisor had with the Russian Embassy – and it has become apparent that the President has known of his transgressions for some time.

Flynn was forced to resign from his post after it emerged that he misinformed the FBI over his communications with the Russian ambassador to the US on the grounds that sanctions on the country would be overturned. It emerged that the advisor had not been truthful on communications he had with Russian units and it was therefore determined that his role as part of the President’s staff should be terminated. Trump, however, is thought to have known about Flynn’s activity for at least three weeks, which has brought into question – once again – the possibility that the President may face impeachment or even legal action.

Trump’s ties to Russia have been rumored and heavily criticized for some time, with allegations dating back to late last year that queried whether or not Russian authorities had influence over the outcome of the US General Election. There is thought to be a trail of financial and communication records, too, which establish that Trump’s associates may have had frequent contact with Russian government representatives ahead of the election – and Trump himself was criticized for his praise of Russian head Vladimir Putin.

Representatives from both parties in Congress are calling for an investigation to be taken place into exactly how Trump and his team are tied to Russia, and to what extent. Veteran US newscaster Dan Rather, who recalls Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, even stated that this scandal appeared to be picking up pace – stating that while Nixon’s affairs are still above and beyond the most scandalous, Trump’s Russian debacle could be gathering steam. Where will the scandal end? Will Trump and his team face legal action – or could the President be impeached? Pressure is likely to be mounting in the coming weeks – which could make for an even more interesting month ahead in US politics.
