Reportedly, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates had expressed concerns that Michael Flynn, President Trump’s national security adviser, may be vulnerable to blackmail by the Russians.
The Washington Post reported Monday that Yates sent a message to White House counsel Donald McGahn in late January, stating that she believed Flynn had misled the Trump administration about his relationship and communications with the Russian ambassador.
The Washington Post added it confirmed Yates’ warning with current and former U.S. officials, noting it is uncertain if McGahn did anything with their warning.
Flynn had reportedly denied speaking about sanctions on Russia with the ambassador. The then national intelligence director, James R. Clapper, Jr. and the CIA director, John Brennan, had both agreed with Yates, saying Flynn may have “put himself in a compromising position,” and that he had possibly mislead Vice President-elect Mike Pence on the situation.
Flynn told the Washington Post in an interview on February 8 that he “couldn’t be certain” that the topic of sanctions never came up in his communication with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
