Yates: Alarm About Russian Blackmail Led To Warning On Flynn
20 Мая 2017, 03:00 | Cynthia Sparks
Why would Trump listen to any "advice" the Obama administration had to offer?
He also said that Yates' assertions about Flynn weren't clear the first time she came to the White House.
She said she had warned him that Mr Flynn had apparently misled the administration about his communications with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador.
The first warning came from President Obama to President-elect Donald Trump on November 10, that is, 48 hours from his election and during their first meeting. On the same day that Yates was testifying before a Senate panel, it was reported that Obama had warned Trump against naming Flynn as national security adviser. But, Obama supporters promptly responded, stating that the Trump Administration was less than thorough when they conducted the security checks before appointing Flynn as a security personnel.
Here are some of the biggest issues that have not been directly answered by any current or former government official. These sanctions were punishment for alleged Russian meddling in the election to try to help Trump win. There is no timeline for either investigation, and they are likely to extend into the next year, providing fodder for a prolonged battle of nerves between the Trump White House and its opponents.
"That created a compromise situation, a situation where the national security adviser essentially could be blackmailed by the Russians", said Yates. However, even after Flynn was sacked he was granted permission to give a paid speech in Moscow, and his security clearance was subsequently reauthorized by the Obama administration following that Russian Federation visit in late 2015. She also said that her office informed the White House of this18 days before Flynn was sacked. "He stands by it", Spicer told reporters.
Meanwhile, during Mrs. Yates' testimony, President Donald Trump was instructing via Twitter the members of the Senate subcommittee what questions to ask the former US Attorney. One of Flynn's calls with Kislyak came on December 29, the day Obama levelled sanctions on Russian Federation in retaliation for the election hacking.
Trump "never intended for that to discriminate on the basis of any particular religion", Jeffrey Wall, the US acting solicitor general, told judges of the Fourth US Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond during an intensely argued afternoon hearing.
Former Deputy US Attorney General Sally Yates was also asked Monday by Sen.
