We all should be troubled by those in government who think it is ok to leak to the media. Does this really make us safer?
Michael Flynn obviously could have handled this better, but we should recognize this for what it really is, a partisan CIA hit job against Flynn and Trump. They want to take Trump down, one staffer or cabinet position at a time.
Flynn's crime was not violating the Logan Act (which is nonsense), but blindsiding Mike Pence (and Donald Trump) with this. But to his credit, Flynn is dropping out to avoid the administration further embarrassment.
What Trump needs to nip in the bud is the spy revolt at the CIA. And when it comes to leaks, it is not just the CIA that Trump has to worry about.
