Does Trump still have confidence in national security advisor Michael Flynn? Top aide won't say

Los Angeles Times

The ominous silence around the Trump administration's national security advisor, retired Gen. Michael Flynn, deepened Sunday as a senior White House official in a televised interview declined to say if the president still has confidence in him. "That's the question that I think you should ask the president, the question you should ask Reince [Priebus], the chief of staff," Stephen Miller, the White House senior policy advisor, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" when asked if Trump still has confidence in Flynn...Miller's silence on Flynn was significant because the White House had booked him on several of the major Sunday television interview programs as the administration's spokesperson this weekend. Flynn's future with the administration is at issue because of indications that he may have misled his colleagues, including Vice President Mike Pence, about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during the weeks before Trump's inauguration. The FBI has been examining Flynn’s contacts with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to multiple news reports. Agents are looking at whether Flynn tried to undermine the Obama administration’s move to toughen sanctions against Moscow after concluding that Russia had meddled in the U.S. election. Flynn had publicly denied discussing sanctions with Kislyak. But on Thursday, a Washington Post account , citing nine current or former U.S. officials, flatly contradicted those denials

Justice Department warned White House that Flynn could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail, officials say

Washington Post

The acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said.

I personally think they knew that flynn had talked to the ambassador, may even had encouraged him to do so, hoping no one noticed. He got caught, they tried to work around it, but got someone in line, just in case they couldn't.

Dems on Flynn: 'This is just the beginning'


House Democrats have a message for GOP leaders eager to move beyond the Russia controversy following the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn: Not so fast.

"This is not the end, this is just the beginning," Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, told reporters in the Capitol Tuesday. "This is larger than Flynn."

The comments set the stage for a messaging war on Capitol Hill between Republican leaders, who are hoping to move beyond questions of the White House's ties to the Kremlin, and Democrats, who are amplifying their calls for a deeper dive in the wake of Flynn's resignation.

A quote in the article from the spineless Republicans, who don't care what the Russians do as long as they can continue on with their precious agenda.

>> GOP leaders — including Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.), House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (Utah) and House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (Calif.) — said Tuesday that they have no plans to dig deeper into Flynn's connections to Russia. Their focus, Ryan said, is repealing ObamaCare. <<
