Sally Yates sheds disturbing light on Trump and Flynn

Sally Yates sheds disturbing light on Trump and Flynn

In contrast to those 18 days, the President said that he didn't think about how his meeting with Russian officials appeared to the public, after firing former FBI Director James Comey, whose bureau was investigating whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow during the campaign.

Trump heard this and thought it "did not sound like an emergency".

Former Acting US Attorney-General Sally Yates testified on Monday that she had warned the White House in January that Gen Flynn had been compromised and could have been vulnerable to blackmail by Russian Federation.

In her calm and self-controlled appearance, Ms. Yates recounted how she had informed White House counsel Donald McGahn that Mr. Flynn had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and expected the White House to take swift action to remove Mr. Flynn.

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 USA, and then misleading Vice-President Mike Pence about the conversations.

"He's a showboat, he's a grandstander, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been in turmoil".

Asked again late last month in a CBS News interview whether he believes Russian Federation tried to interfere in the election, Trump said "I don't know".

"This man has served for many years, he's a general, He's, in my opinion, a very good person", Mr Trump told NBC's Lester Holt.

Right now, I do not believe President Trump is a target or subject of any investigation regarding collusion with the Russians. In 2011, he became chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which oversees 16 intelligence agencies.

The US President also said that two phone calls were made - one made by himself and another by Comey.

The assessment comes amid a mushrooming crisis for the Trump team as questions swirl over why the president fired his FBI director, who was overseeing an investigation into Russian election meddling and possible connections between Trump campaign associates and Russia past year.

Flynn, you'll recall, is seeking an immunity deal, and his lawyer has said the former National Security Advisor "certainly has a story to tell" and he's eager to tell it.

Asked whether they believed the intelligence community's January assessment that Russian Federation was responsible for hacking and leaking information to influence the elections was accurate, all six spy and law enforcement bosses appearing before the panel said "yes".
