Sally Yates warned Trump that Flynn was lying — Did he even listen?


“Here’s a man I can really trust”

❝ 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.

The message, delivered by Sally Q. Yates and a senior career national security official to the White House counsel, was prompted by concerns that ­Flynn, when asked about his calls and texts with the Russian diplomat, had told Vice ­President-elect Mike Pence and others that he had not discussed the Obama administration sanctions on Russia for its interference in the 2016 election, the officials said….

When Yates advised Trump his Muslim Ban was unconstitutional – he fired her. Apparently he then ignored her info on Flynn, as well, since he went ahead with Flynn’s appointment as National Security Advisor.

Flynn resigned Monday night in the wake of revelations about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

❝ Current and former officials said that although they believed that Pence was misled about the contents of Flynn’s communications with the Russian ambassador, they couldn’t rule out that Flynn was acting with the knowledge of others in the transition.

Are we to believe the Big Boy himself had no idea of Flynn’s flouting of law? Provided no guidance to Flynn’s statements to Putin guaranteeing removal of Obama’s sanctions over Russian electoral hacking?

Wait a minute. I have to put on my Wellies.
