How convenient.

Now we know why Obama "warned" Trump not to hire Flynn.  He knew Flynn would figure out what was going on.

"The perjury trap was set for Flynn out of necessity. If the Justice Department had informed the White House about recordings of Flynn and Kislyak discussing sanctions, and the FBI then asked for permission to interview Flynn, the bureau knew permission was sure to be denied. Flynn would be untouchable, and free to discover the entirety of the Obama administration’s extensive but secret effort to depict Trump and his minions as Russian operatives — an effort the FBI was determined to keep pursuing."

"And I think it's because, you know, Flynn had a bull's-eye on his back. People like Comey, McCabe, Brennan and Clapper all knew that once Flynn took the helm...as national security adviser, he would expose the Russia hoax," Jarrett stated. "And so they went after him with a vengeance. They targeted him, and they got rid of him."

Yawn and Stretch.

Nothing more than Trumpster propaganda.

The only thing Flynn could "figure out," was how to pad his bank account.

Why did Trump fire him?

A news story published on Apr 30, 2014:

Head of Pentagon intelligence agency forced out, officials say

...   Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn is expected to end his tenure as DIA director this summer, about a year before he was scheduled to depart, according to officials who said Flynn faced pressure from Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. and others in recent months...

...   Critics said that his management style could be chaotic and that the scope of his plans met resistance from both superiors and subordinates. At the same time, his tenure was marked by significant turbulence, including the fallout from the classified intelligence files leaked by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, as well as other emerging crises.

“His vision in DIA was seen as disruptive,” said a former Pentagon official who worked closely with Flynn. At the DIA, Flynn sought to push DIA analysts and operators “up and out of their cubicles into the field to support war fighters or high-intensity operations,” the former official said. “I’m not sure DIA sees itself as that.”...

"Regarding the decision of the Department of Justice to dismiss charges against General Flynn, in your recent call with your alumni, you expressed great concern: “there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.”

Here is some help—if truth and precedent represent your true concern. Your statement is entirely false. However, it does explain the damage to the Rule of Law throughout your administration."

I'm not sure how it makes sense to make an argument based on the premise that there wasn't legitimate basis to investigate (well established) ties between members of Trump's campaign and Russia-linked operatives and then claim you don't want to justify that claim because you "don't want to revive old arguments".  It can't be your current argument and also an "old argument" you don't want to talk about at the same time.

It's not complicated.  The "old" argument that I'm uninterested in is that there was a legitimate basis for the investigation.  Most realize there was not, and its absurd to keep saying there was.

"The FBI opened a counterintelligence probe of Flynn in August 2016 on the absurd ground that he might be a clandestine Russian agent. (Flynn is a retired three-star Army general and decorated combat commander, who had then recently written a book identifying Russia as a committed global adversary of the United States.) This suspicion was frivolously supported.

The FBI's then-director, James Comey, authorized closing the investigation in December 2016, and the paperwork to do so was completed on Jan. 4, 2017 - 20 days before the Flynn interview.

Then the FBI learned that Flynn, as an official in the Trump transition who was designated to become the president's national security adviser, had had communications in December with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The government was monitoring Kislyak, and recordings showed that Flynn did nothing inappropriate; there was no ground to reopen or continue the counterintelligence investigation or to begin a criminal investigation. "

"On Friday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany laid out basic parts of the so-called “Obamagate” scandal that has gained traction in recent days on the alleged actions of Obama administration officials against members of the Trump campaign and against people who were then-incoming members of his administration."

I'd strongly encourage all to scroll down and watch the video clip.

We know that Flynn was acting as an unregistered agent for Turkey.

We know he lied to the FBI.

We know he lied to Pence.

We know the disgraced General liked to pad his wallet, like convictef criminal Paul Manafort.

We know Flynn plead guilty to charges.

Again, why did Trump fire him?

The musings and conspiracy theories put forth by Trump and supporters provide such amusement, during an otherwise bleak time for America.
