Russia Accuses US of 'Paranoia' Over Ties After Flynn's Ouster

The new USA administration is under pressure over Russia however because Michael Flynn, Trump's national security adviser, is struggling to get past a controversy over a call he had with the Russian ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak before Trump took office. "I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology", Flynn said in his resignation letter. "I'll leave it up to the administration to describe the circumstances", the Republican House speaker told reporters.

In regards to National Security Adviser Michael Flynn " s resignation, Mr. Cummings said: "Something is wrong here. Flynn's departure Monday night came on the heels of revelations that the Justice Department had informed the White House that he could be subject to blackmail from Russian Federation.

Flynn may have broken the law by discussing American sanctions with Russian Federation in a phone call, and he certainly breached protocol.

Mr Flynn is a retired United States army general and former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Trump hasn't named a replacement for Michael Flynn. He knows the real question is whether Flynn was acting entirely on his own or at the behest of Trump or presidential adviser Steve Bannon. Did the White House counsel really never tell the president?

"There is not a legal issue but rather a trust issue", Spicer said, who added that the circumstances created a "critical mass and an unsustainable situation".

"The Intelligence Committee is already looking at Russian involvement in our election. Sen".

There were also conflicting accounts about who initiated Flynn's exit. There will be some in Team Trump who will say voters care little about the departure of a national security adviser, that it is just more goings on inside the Washington "bubble".

The good news is that suddenly we have the media widely asking the old Watergate question about what the president knew and when. Ultimately, the question becomes what Trump knew and did himself. Spicer for the first time clarified that it was Trump who had fired the senior aide, contrary to earlier reports that Flynn had resigned voluntarily from his position.

With American foreign policy leadership in disarray, President Trump's next national security adviser must insist on receiving the autonomy to restore stability. (Of course, an independent investigation is a time-honored way to get more information, but whatever.) The chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, defended Flynn up to and even after his departure.

Mr Trump has long said that he would like improved relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Senate and House intelligence committees are now investigating the Russian hacking and contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia.

McCain, a leading Republican voice on foreign relations, said Flynn's resignation raised questions about the administration's intentions toward Putin's Russian Federation.
