Friday, February 17, 2017 US President blames intel officials over Flynn-Russia affairWASHINGTON — US President Donald Trump on Wednesday blamed the media and “illegally leaked” intelligence information for bringing down his national security adviser Michael Flynn, one day after the White House said Trump had asked Flynn to resign because he misled Vice-President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia. Harward met with top White House officials last week and has the backing of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. Flynn’s ouster was a blow to a White House struggling to find its footing in Trump’s first weeks in office. Very un-American!”The president ignored shouted questions about whether his advisers were in touch with Russian officials. At about the same time, Pence learned that the Justice Department had warned the White House last month regarding Flynn’s conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
