To the editor:
The Trump administration continues to jeopardize our country with its inept and dangerous handling of our security. (“Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn resigns over contacts with Russia,” Feb. 13)
Former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s contact with Russia during the transition period not only was potentially illegal but also made him susceptible to blackmail.
Despite being given that information by the Justice Department in January, President Trump allowed Flynn to continue to serve until reports about his contacts with Russia came out last week.
Furthermore, just Saturday, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida was the scene for a candle-lit patio dinner with the Japanese prime minister when news broke of North Korea’s missile lunch. Rather than retreat to a secure venue with his staff members, Trump held talks in full view of the other guests that night.
Heaven help the United States.

Note from KBJ: Just imagine how blackmailable Hillary Clinton would have been. Thank God she was defeated. Cynthia Weitz should thank her lucky stars that Donald Trump was elected.
