Obama White House was so wary of Flynn’s contact with Russia it intentionally withheld info

Published

on

In addition to the information published by The Washington Post Friday about Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the Associated Press is also reporting tonight that President Barack Obama’s administration was so concerned about the connections the Trump campaign had to Russia it delayed critical information.

In late, Dec. 2016, the Obama administration was prepared to introduce sanctions and kick out Russians living in the U.S. for the hacks on the election. According to the AP, the Obama administration didn’t brief the Trump transition team until “shortly before” it was announced publicly. NBC News also learned that it wasn’t just “shortly” it was mere hours prior to the public announcement.

The AP continued that the reason for the short notice was due to fears the transition team might tell Moscow ahead of time. Officials in the Obama White House were concerned about the “frequency of [Flynn’s] discussions” with Russian officials.

Despite the anxiety about Flynn, Obama officials say that they did not withhold any information.

According to the New York Times, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man will be released in four weeks, on schedule.

"Justice Alan Scheinkman’s ruling, however, put off addressing a central aspect of the bitter spat about the manuscript that has been roiling all month in the Trump family: whether, by writing the book, Ms. Trump violated a confidentiality agreement put in place nearly 20 years ago after a struggle over the will of her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., Donald Trump’s father," the report said.

Published

on

President Donald Trump was so incensed that the media learned of his staffers who caught COVID-19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma that he had a kind of inquisition for healthcare workers to investigate if they linked the story.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that those familiar to his reaction said that outside of the BOK center, Trump campaign staff were being tested before the event. When the information was released, they scrambled, quizzing who leaked the information about the positive cases.

Healthcare workers were "then given a different list of people to test, according to two people with direct knowledge of the events who, like others in this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations," said the Post.
