Scrutinising Civil Service, Government’s Leaky Bucket, Classified Information Fed to Reporters says Flynn as He Walks out With Trump’s Hand Hard on His Back

Whistleblowers are an important tool for countering corruption, but politically motivated operatives dug in as civil servants should be uprooted from government. On Monday, Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, retired General Michael Flynn, resigned after just 24 days into his government post. He had no intention to resign. In his final hours, he gave a revealing interview to the Daily Caller which was eerily published, after he had submitted his letter of resignation and stepped down, revealing the ghost of a leaky shadow in the United States government. His departing gift to the American people was to expose what may be an activist impulse, or an organised apparatus within the Civil Service.
