Even for Trump, this is freaky.

Flynn's Russian Federation ties are also being scrutinized by the FBI as it conducts a similar investigation.

"And that created a compromise situation, a situation where the national security advisor essentially could be blackmailed by the Russians".

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has previously expressed skepticism about Yates' motives in giving her initial heads up about Flynn to the White House.

Sally Yates Got Trump Shook.In an open Senate hearing, fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates testifies that she warned President Trump of then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's Russian ties. She told White House officials, she said, "so that they would take action".

The images - issued by the Russian state news agency TASS, and subsequently published by much of the global media - showed a grinning Trump shaking hands with Sergei Lavrov and the Russian ambassador in Washington, Sergei Kislyak, during an Oval Office meeting.

Gen Flynn was forced to resign in February as Trump's national security adviser for failing to disclose the content of his talks with Mr Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the U.S., and then misleading Vice-President Mike Pence about the conversations.

"My White House counsel, Don McGahn, came back to me and did not sound like an emergency", Trump said.

And yet, at this point, Trump is still defending Flynn.

Apparently, President Donald Trump doesn't know Sally Yates.

James Clapper, Obama's director of national intelligence, told the Senate committee that the Russian interference in the us election exceeded Moscow's "wildest expectations". On Tuesday, Spicer praised the "due process" of the White House in the lead up to Flynn's dismissal and dismissed Yates as "someone who is not exactly a supporter of the president's agenda".

Flynn's contacts with the Russian government are also being examined by the FBI's investigation of possible links between Trump campaign officials and Russian meddling in the elections.

"This aggressiveness was evident in Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 United States election, and we assess that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized the 2016 United States election-focused data thefts and disclosures, based on the scope and sensitivity of the targets". "A second source said the committee communicated that it is "not receptive" to Flynn's request 'at this time, '" NBC reported.
