Under Oath, Sally Yates Drops Hammer on Flynn, White House

Trump's National Security Advisor "Compromised" by Russia

POLITICO: “Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates cast a harsh light on the White House on Monday, detailing how she had informed Trump administration officials that then-national security adviser Michael Flynn was susceptible to blackmail from Russia, only to watch President Donald Trump take 18 days to fire him.”

“We believed that Gen. Flynn was compromised,” she testified at a highly anticipated Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing. “To state the obvious, you don’t want your national security adviser compromised with the Russians.”

“Yates’ appearance also revived another controversial episode — her own firing as acting attorney general on Jan. 30, which came after she refused to defend Trump’s first travel ban targeting citizens from several Muslim-majority countries.”
