White House claims Yates was a strong supporter of Clinton

White House claims Yates was a strong supporter of Clinton

As President Donald Trump faces a mounting number of government crises, he took time to praise Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser was recently subpoenaed by the Senate and who he fired earlier this year for misleading the Vice President about contacts with Russian Federation.

Of how she went to the White House early this year to convey that President Trump's top national security adviser was lying about his Russian contacts, that the Russians knew it, that the adviser, General Michael Flynn, was open to blackmail.

President Obama's ambassador to Russia and a former director of Central Intelligence Agency operations in Russia are casting doubt on former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates' claim that former national security adviser Michael Flynn opened himself up to blackmail by the Russian government. Yates testified that she warned White House counsel Don McGahn that Flynn was vulnerable to blackmail by the Russians, who also knew that Flynn's comments were inappropriate and that Pence had represented the conversation differently.

Further, said Klobuchar, the Trump administration chose to keep Flynn on an additional 18 days after Yates' warning, "and in fact, two days after having this warning allowed him to sit in on an hour-long telephone call between the president of the United States and [Russian President] Vladimir Putin". Yates' decision not to defend Trump's first travel ban vindicates that mistrust of her motives, the press secretary insisted - as well as its decision not to inform her of the travel ban before it was started.

Despite Yates' warning to the White House, Flynn was present in meetings with high-level officials and sat in on a phone call between Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin. In the first meeting, Spicer said, Yates told the White House there were materials relating to the matter that Spicer said that the White House didn't obtain until February 2. All Cruz's aggressive line of questioning did was show how right Yates had been about everything. Amy Klobuchar said Tuesday, the day after Yates' testimony to a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing.

In a second tweet, Trump said Yates should be asked under oath "if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers" soon after she raised concerns about Flynn with White House counsel Don McGahn on January 26.

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.

He reiterated that it was Flynn's misleading of Vice President Mike Pence about the topics of his conversations, not Yates' warnings, that led to his firing.

She was understood to be referring to telephone calls between Flynn and Russian ambassador to Moscow Sergey Kislyak before Trump took office.

But on Monday, Yates testified that her message to the White House was very clear. The message was part of a series of late-night tweets about the testimony of former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates and the investigation as a whole. He said the White House acted quickly, but also wanted to make sure Flynn was afforded an "element of due process".

Yates answer was that you don't want your National Security Adviser compromised by the Russians. He's dismissed FBI and congressional investigations into his campaign's possible ties to the election meddling as a "hoax" driven by Democrats bitter over losing the White House.
