National Security Adviser Michael Flynn Resigns; Audio Excerpt
Embattled National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday following reports that he discussed U.S. sanctions with a Russian envoy prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Lt. General Joseph Kellogg, Jr. has been named acting national security adviser, CBS News reported. On Friday, The Washington Post reported that Flynn addressed sanctions against Russia in a call with Kislyak. The report contradicted repeated denials from Trump officials, including Pence, who vouched for Flynn in a televised interview.
