Trump’s National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn has resigned Monday night. His resignation now opens up many more questions about his communications with a foreign adversary, Russia. Who knew what and when? Is Flynn the lone wolf in this or did others in the Trump administration know about Flynn leaking information about sanctions being posed on Russia?
Growing calls to fire Flynn from his White House position came as an explosive Washington Post report said he misled the administration about his contact with Russia’s ambassador to discuss U.S. sanctions prior to the inauguration. Flynn became a political liability and his communications with Russia made him vulnerable to blackmail.
On the very day that President Obama issued sanctions on Russia for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, Flynn made a call to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Flynn later denied that he discussed the U.S. sanctions during the conversation with the Russian ambassador. Yet, the phone call was possibly recorded and it was revealed he did discuss the sanctions.
The Washington Post said, ” Former acting attorney general Sally Yates informed President Trump’s administration just weeks ago about a possible intelligence breach after Flynn denied that he had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador to the US,”
