'I warned White House about Michael Flynn'

Social media reacts after Trump adds his own tweet to profile Trump White House knew Michael Flynn was possible Russian blackmail target for 18 days before firing him, Sally Yates tells Senate committee

Trump, who continued to praise Flynn, waited 18 days after Yates' warning before Flynn's forced resignation for failing to disclose the content of his talks with Kislyak and then misleading Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations.

Without elaborating on how she learned the information, she told senators that she met with McGahn and told him that what Pence had relayed about Flynn, "we knew not to be the truth".

Former President Barack Obama warned Donald Trump not to hire Michael Flynn has his National Security Advisor, reports Obama administration officials. Both confirmed they had, but said they could not go into detail.

Yates testified that she told the White House that the Russians also knew what Flynn had done and that he had misled the vice president and others.

Did Flynn break any laws and, if so, will he face criminal charges?

Could he see the underlying evidence collected in Flynn's interview? "That created a compromise situation, a situation where the National Security Adviser essentially could be blackmailed by the Russians", said the former acting Attorney General.

Flynn's lawyer, Robert Kelner, declined comment when reached by CNN Monday. That's what President Trump is calling ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Poggi, contra los Rodríguez Saá
Hace 72 horas que el exgobernador de San Luis , Claudio Poggi, está atrincherado en los tribunales electorales de esa provincia. El gobernador Rodríguez Saá transita por estos días un acercamiento explícito al kirchnerismo.

That's an assessment that's looking increasingly detached from United States intelligence officials.

Clinton last week partly blamed her upset loss to Trump on the release of the emails before the November election.

After the hearing Monday, Trump claimed in a tweet that Yates said "nothing but old news".

"You could rationalize that it helps the Russians by obfuscating who was actually responsible", Clapper said.

"Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows - there is "no evidence" of collusion w/ Russian Federation and Trump", Trump said.

Clapper's testimony was based on information gathered up until the time he retired on January 20. In response to questions, she denied leaking any classified information about the case to the news media. He says he has no ties to Russian Federation, but the investigations are expected to last into next year.

Ms Yates was sacked by Trump after she refused to defend his travel ban.

Yeah, I'm not going to get back into it. She rebutted him by pointing to a later court ruling that supported her argument that she had a greater duty to protect against discrimination and uphold the Constitution.

Interestingly, Clapper also mentioned he did not have access to the information obtained by Federal Bureau of Investigation on the matter, but Trump conveniently forgot to mention that.

"In looking at what the intent was of the executive order - which was derived in part of an analysis of facts outside of the face of the order - that is part of what led to our conclusion that it was not lawful", she told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee when questioned by Sen. At the end of the hypothetical exercise, Blumenthal pressed Yates if that was even remotely possible.

Clapper was instrumental in the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation sought to boost Trump's chances of winning the election by hacking into the computer of the campaign chief for Clinton.

The Associated Press reported last week that one sign taken as a warning by Obama officials about Flynn's contacts with Kislyak was a request by a member of Trump's own transition team made to national security officials in the Obama White House for the classified Central Intelligence Agency profile of Kislyak.
