Critics react to Trump's tweet on firing Flynn

A person familiar with the transition's effort on the United Nations vote said it was well-known and a collaborative effort by various transition officials, including Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Flynn and Kushner, adding that none of them "ordered" or "directed" the others and all were working towards the same goal of standing by Israel. "Yet Trump tried to influence or stop the FBI investigation on #Flynn".

The main difference is that there is actually evidence of serious scandal with James Comey and the Obama administration in regards to the Hillary Clinton email case, while the Russian Federation collusion narrative, as far as it personally involves President Trump, is driven one hundred percent by sheer speculation.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment on Trump's tweet.

"No I'm not", Trump said in his first public remarks on the plea deal. In court documents filed Friday, Flynn said he had conversations about those calls with officials of Trump's transition team including one senior member. Trump has criticized the FBI's handling of the Clinton email investigation, initially citing it as his reason for firing former FBI director James Comey on May 9. "I hope you can let this go".

White House Transition Adviser's Emails Say Russia Threw The Election To Trump ― REPORT
Trump blasts ABC News reporter Brian Ross over 'horrendously inaccurate and dishonest report' on Michael Flynn

Critics claimed on Saturday that President Trump inadvertently admitted to obstruction of justice as he tried to distance himself from his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn. Though White House officials including Pence had stated publicly that Flynn had not discussed sanctions with Kislyak, Yates has said she advised McGahn that there were factual problems with that account. The matter came up during a review that the Justice Department launched into the FBI's decision to announce an inquiry into Clinton's emails shortly before the November presidential election. Some conservatives encouraged Mr. Trump to fire Mr. Mueller, saying the investigation was tainted.

"These new Federal Bureau of Investigation documents show the Federal Bureau of Investigation was more concerned about a whistleblower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself", Fitton said in a statement. The White House said Comey was dismissed on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

As part of his plea on Friday, Mr Flynn agreed to cooperate with the investigation. Information about it was leaked to the media in January, after Trump's inauguration.

Trump told NBC News in May that "I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it" and "I said to myself - I said, you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".
