There have been all kinds of rumors circulating that General Mike Flynn resigned by choice to help Trump avoid the media. THESE ARE ALL FALSE!
White House Spokesman Sean Spicer revealed in his press conference today that President Trump FIRED Mike Flynn because he was acting VERY suspicious.
According to Spicer, Trump has been “suspicious” of Mike Flynn for several weeks now after learning about the phone call with Russia along with several “other questionable incidents” not specified.

There is no shame in this. Donald Trump had given his confidence to a respected military official. He later found out that Mike Flynn may have been compromised and dealt with it accordingly.
He said it was not an issue of the phone calls that disturbed him. It was a TRUST issue. It was about Flynn LYING to Mike Pence and others. You cannot give the Director of National Intelligence job to someone you cannot trust.
‘That is why the president decided to ask for his resignation, and he got it.’
This is NOT a good day for the Trump administration, however, it DOES prove that the President is willing to take action when he sees a problem. That in itself is a GREAT form of leadership.
So let’s set the record straight by making sure the REAL story gets out to everyone everywhere right now!!
