Michael Flynn has resigned as National Security Advisor. Flynn was asked by President Trump to resign after it was revealed that he misled Vice President Pence about his relationship with Russia – more specifically his phone calls with the Ambassador for Russia. According to the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Trump asked Flynn to resign after the Department of Justice warned him about Flynn. Michael Flynn, former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, became well known for his speech at the Republican National Convention on behalf of Donald Trump. Flynn, a Democrat, became a close ally of Trump during the general election campaign and was given the job as Nation Advisor advisor despite the concerns expressed by some.

Taking over for Flynn as acting National Security Advisor is Keith Kellogg who is also serving as the Executive Secretary of the National Security Council. Though Kellogg had this job temporarily, it may not be permanent as the Trump team is considering a successor already. While they are considering him, they are also considering Deputy Commander Robert Harward and former Director of National Intelligence and army General David Petraeus. Petraeus is the most well known, he is an independent and was a common go-to comparison when debates about Hillary Clinton’s email server came up. He was placed on probation and will remain on probation until April.
