Donald Trump Was Warned About Adviser Michael Flynn's Vulnerability

"I haven't seen it". "We were shocked and dismayed to learn this evening of reports that three weeks ago, USA law enforcement officials warned the White House Counsel that General Flynn had provided false information to the public about his communications with the Russian government, but that the Trump Administration apparently did nothing about it", they said. Spicer later said Trump was only referring to the Post report and not the broader situation.

What Trump and his team have failed to explain in detail is why it took a "few weeks".

The fall from grace of Donald Trump's National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, who resigned late on Monday night, proves that efforts are being made to undermine Russian-US relations.

That conversation was first reported by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius on January 12.

Spicer said other "questionable incidents" had contributed to Flynn's firing. He specifically denied that Flynn and Kislyak had discussed sanctions.

There was no indication from transcripts of Flynn's conversations that he had promised to lift the sanctions but rather that he made more general comments about hoping for better U.S.

Leading Democrats demanded a special investigation into possible links between the administration and Russian Federation, including whether Mr Trump had any knowledge of the discussions Mr Flynn had on United States sanctions with the Kremlin's ambassador in Washington. She warned that Flynn could be susceptible to blackmail by the Russians. The telephone consultations presumably took place a month prior to the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

An hour later, Press Secretary Sean Spicer released a contradictory statement saying, "The President is evaluating the situation".

Moveover, it renews once again his battle with America's intelligence agencies and in the long run this is potentially the most serious challenge for the USA under Trump's administration: in short, can intelligence operatives and other state officials maintain their distance from the White House and continue to be a conduit of vital information to the media?

Besides being illegal to conduct US diplomacy before taking office, Flynn's repeated conversations with Moscow's ambassador also have renewed questions about Trump's friendly posture toward Russian Federation at a time when USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation hacked and released Democratic e-mails with an eye toward helping Trump get elected.

Flynn is an advocate of softer relations with the Russians, but some believe he will be back.

"I think it's likely that General Flynn will be at some point asked to come and talk to the committee about both post-election activities and any other activities that he would be aware of", he told reporters Tuesday. In the hours after Flynn left, senior lawmakers said that it was Flynn who might get called to testify before intelligence panels about his Russian Federation contacts.

"This morning, on this show, is not the venue for me to lay out all the evidence", Miller said.

"We got to a point - not based on a legal issue but based on a trust issue - with a level of trust between the President and General Flynn had eroded to the point where he felt he had to make a change". The president was informed of the warnings the same day, Spicer said.

Then, the conversation shifted to trust. "The issue, pure and simple, came down to a matter of trust".
