Flynn, Trump aide under scrutiny, will attend Netanyahu meetings

"Just how that will fit with the style of the Twitterer-in-Chief, I don't know". I haven't seen that.

'The President and his National Security Advisor have given the Russians the impression that whatever they do, they are not to worry, because the Trump White House will not stand against their aggression.

Mr Trump had initially concluded that Mr Flynn's actions did not violate any law, according to Mr Spicer.

"Michael Flynn served in the US military for more than three decades", he said of the retired Army lieutenant general.

"Gen. Flynn has said up to this point that he had not said anything like that to the Russian ambassador".

At a minimum, Trump knew about Flynn's interactions with Russian Federation since last month.

Obama administration officials who knew of the conversation had told the White House, according to reports, last month that Flynn had misled the administration about his phone call, which had left him vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.

Peskov has previously denied that Flynn and Kislyak had discussed sanctions. Flynn, a retired USA army general, he has long called for closer cooperation with Moscow. The paper described the atmosphere at the NSC as "chaotic and anxious", and said that officials "get up in the morning, read President Trump's Twitter posts and struggle to make policy to fit them", unaware of what the president tells foreign leaders in his phone calls.

Spicer suggested Trump would find it inappropriate if Flynn had discussed sanctions on the call.

NBC News reported Tuesday that Pence didn't learn of the DOJ warning until February 9 ― about two weeks after the White House had first been notified.

Senate Democratic leaders rejected on Wednesday a push by some of their members to appoint an independent commission to investigate the charges that the Trump administration - including ousted national security adviser Michael T. Flynn - had frequent contacts with Russian Federation during and after the 2016 campaign. Trump waited more than two weeks to demand Flynn's resignation.

Moreover, it was reported by The New York Times Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed Flynn during his first days in the White House.

Vice Admiral Harward met with top White House officials last week and has the backing of Defence Secretary Jim Mattis. "These are legitimate questions and legitimate inquiries that I think Americans need to know". "This is all a distraction, and it's all part of a narrative to delegitimize the election and to question the legitimacy of (Trump's) presidency". Pence learned about the Justice Department warnings to the White House around the same time.

"I don't have an update", Spicer said. And then when a revelation came out that he did not fully disclose the content of the conversations, or there was a miscommunication on what was talked about it put the Vice-President in a position, where I believe he went to President and said 'Look, I'm trying to deal for you on the Capitol Hill, my word has to mean something.

He added: "It will be a very good outcome if the president starts taking a firm line on Russian Federation". "What this came down to was a matter of trust".
