Spicer: Yates as 'Strong Supporter' of Clinton, 'Political Opponent' of Trump

Meanwhile, the U.S. administration fiercely denied Trump's contested travel ban deliberately single out Muslims during an appeals court hearing Monday - despite the president's campaign call for a blanket Muslim ban.

"We weren't the only ones that knew all of this, that the Russians also knew about what General Flynn had done and the Russians also knew that General Flynn had misled the Vice President and others", Yates said, relating the contents of her conversation with McGahn. She said she was not.

Spicer continued, "I think if you flip this scenario and say, what if we had just dismissed someone because a political opponent of the president had made an utterance, you would argue that it was pretty irrational to act in that manner". Mr Flynn had been fired by the Obama administration in 2014.

Yates repeatedly declined to discuss details of the investigation in a public forum. Earlier this year, Flynn had resigned after it turned out he had lied to Vice President Pence about conversations with a Russian ambassador.

Yates, who was sacked on January 30 after defying Trump over his contested travel ban, did not say what Flynn discussed with ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a number of December 2016 phone calls, which were secretly monitored by USA intelligence.

President Trump later fired Yates for refusing to enforce his travel ban. He accepted the payments, the investigators say, after specifically being warned when he retired from the military to not take money from foreign governments. On the same day that Yates was testifying before a Senate panel, it was reported that Obama had warned Trump against naming Flynn as national security adviser.

Prior to the Senate committee's hearing, questions were raised by Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, as to Barack Obama's handling of Flynn. The only "evidence" so far has been talking points by Democrats, faithfully repeated in the media, that hint at dark doings in the Trump campaign without any specificity or proof.

What was his role at the White House in those 18 days?

The day of Yates' testimony, Trump defended Flynn on Twitter, saying that he had been "given the highest security clearance by the Obama Administration", but that "the Fake News seldom likes talking about that".

The White House didn't care that Trump's national security adviser was compromised by the Russians. What was of most interest to the senators was information regarding Trump's former national security advisor Gen.

Yates' warning about Flynn capped weeks of concern among top Obama officials, former officials told the AP.
