The turmoil appears to be more in the reaction of the media than reality

Staff members are struggling to make policy to fit the president’s Twitter posts, and the council’s leader, Michael T. Flynn, is facing an inquiry into his communications with Russia.
Trump's Twitter post appear to be consistent with his policy pronouncements, so it is hard to see why they should be considered a surprise to the staff of the National Security Council.

The questions in the media about Flynn's preinauguration communications also appear to be overwrought.  Both parties to these communications understood that the Trump administration could do nothing until the inauguration so they were basically communications about potential policies, and how they impact relations.  That does not strike me as a matter of concern.

This looks like another attempt by liberals to push their narrative that things are going askew under Trump.  There is little basis for such claims if this is all they have.  Could the source of these stories be former Obama employees?  There seems to be a concerted effort by Obama and members of his administration to sabotage the Trump administration and this looks like part of that scheme.
