Mike Pence Told About Flynn Warning 11 Days After Trump, White House

Mike Pence Told About Flynn Warning 11 Days After Trump, White House

The Kremlin had confirmed that Flynn was in contact with Kislyak but denied that they talked about lifting sanctions. "That was it, plain and simple", Spicer said.

"I have sincerely apologised to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology", he said amid concerns over whether he discussed the possibility of lifting the USA sanctions on Russian Federation before Trump took office.

In the aftermath of Michael Flynn's departure, the President wrote on Twitter that the "real story" was the alleged leaks - and he questioned if they would continue as he deals with issues such as North Korea. However, a senior intelligence official told NBC News last week that there had been no finding that Flynn acted illegally.

Mr Flynn has apologised to Mr Pence and others over the incident, the first official said.

February 9: The Post reports Flynn, through a spokesperson, admitted he discussed sanctions with Kislyak, backtracking on his previous denials. But his resignation offers little prospect of defusing a growing cloud over the administration about the nature of the Trump team's communications with Moscow before the president was sworn in on January 20.

But top House Republicans seemed even more hesitant than their Senate counterparts to launch a full-fledged investigation into Flynn.

Retired General Keith Kellogg, who has been chief of staff of the White House National Security Council, was named the acting national security adviser.

3 reasons why Liverpool will finish in the Premier League's top four
Liverpool's record with that pair starting is eight wins and three draws out of 11, but only five wins out of 13 without them. If Liverpool don't finish in the top four and have no trophy to show at the end of the season - it's a disappointment.

The controversy comes after Flynn walked back his previous denials about discussing Russian sanctions Friday, saying he couldn't be 100% certain that there was no discussion of sanctions on the call.

Mr Pence is said to be troubled by the possibility of being misled. Fuck yeah he did, and the White House needs to stop acting like it didn't know. "He's speaking to the vice president relative to the conversation the vice president had with Gen. Flynn, and also speaking to various other people about what he considers the single most important subject there is: our national security".

Retired General Flynn "should be suspended and have his intelligence clearance revoked until the facts are known about his secret contacts with the Russians", demanded Democrat minority House leader Nancy Pelosi. When Trump said, "I don't know about that", he simply meant he didn't know about the Washington Post report specifically, Spicer claimed. "I'll let the public make their own decisions based on what you just said". Any such discussions may have violated USA law prohibiting private citizens from conducting foreign policy.

When asked if President Trump has continued confidence in his NSC pick, Miller told moderator Chuck Todd, "It's not for me to tell you what's in the president's mind".

Flynn spoke on the phone with Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak on December 29, the day President Barack Obama's administration announced sanctions against Russian Federation in response to its reported efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

"You can not have a national security adviser misleading the vice president and others", Ryan told reporters at a weekly press briefing on Capitol Hill.
