White House defends its reaction to Yates' warnings

White House defends its reaction to Yates' warnings”

Trump asked for Flynn's resignation and he received it. Trump can not go back and ask Flynn for his resignation a second time. Would DOJ pursue a criminal case? In public, Hoover pledged "unrelenting prosecution" of subversives and asked Congress for "public disclosure of the forces that threaten America". "I also thought that it was inconsistent with the principles of the Department of Justice, and I said 'no.' And that's what I promised you I would do, and that's what I did".

"Sally Yates made the fake media extremely unhappy today - she said nothing but old news!"

Flynn was sacked in February for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his discussions with Russia's ambassador.

Vice President Pence had initially said that Flynn and the ambassador did not discuss USA sanctions against Russian Federation, which turned out not to be true.

Flynn's company, Flynn Intel Group, told the Justice Department in March that the two $40,000 payments were consulting fees for unspecified work.

Andersen Air Force Base , which is located 3,500 kilometers (2,200 miles) away from North Korea, according to Schilling. "We believe South Korea will bring clear measures to improve relations", Wang said.

The Russian embassy in Washington is bugged by American intelligence, and it has been since Hoover´s heyday. "They likely had proof of this information, and that created a compromise situation".

He more or less said he'd heard that there were "rumors" Yates would be selected to work in a Clinton administration, which meant - to him - that she was a Clinton supporter and "opponent" of Trump's.

"The underlying conduct that Gen. Flynn had engaged in was problematic in and of itself", she testified Monday.

US President Donald Trump insisted there is no evidence he colluded with Russia after a Senate hearing that highlighted warnings that his former national security advisor was vulnerable to Russian blackmail.

"Sally Yates came here on the 26th of January", Spicer said. "After that time, they did what you should do frankly - is an element of due process". During that period, Flynn accepted tens of thousands of dollars from a Russian state-sponsored television network.

They were also asked if they would like to socialise with the person in the photo, the " Los Angeles Times " reported. In short, people can tell when you're exhausted and think you are less attractive when you haven't got enough sleep.

How´d he do? McGahn asked.

Early on in the race for the Democratic nomination, Carter said he believed former secretary of state Hillary Clinton would get the nomination "because money dominates, and she has an inside track to the massive amounts that are going to pour into the Democratic Party side". This could not have comforted the White House counsel. As she told the senators, lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation is punishable by up to five years in prison. At one point, Yates explicitly used the term "blackmail" with respect to the kind of danger Flynn was in-and, for that matter, that the White House was in. Mark Warner, the committee's Democratic vice chairman, issued a joint statement saying the panel made a decision to issue the subpoena after Flynn, through his lawyer, declined to cooperate with an April 28 request to turn over the documents. He's also tried to pin Flynn's troubles on Obama, noting that it was the previous administration that continued to approve Flynn's security clearance after he was sacked.

"Let's look at the timeline", Spicer said. "I think we've been very clear as to what happened and why it happened".

The Yates hearing was a foretaste of what promises to be a summer of inquiry in Washington.

On Wednesday, The Associated Press reported that Flynn is at odds with his former Turkish client over two unusual payments totaling $80,000 that Flynn's firm sent back a year ago to the client.
