Ethics Officer Says Conway's Comments Appear to Violate Rules

Posted February 16, 2017

Earlier Monday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Trump had "full confidence" in Flynn, though her assertions were not backed up by other senior Trump aides.

The takeaway from the back and forth: confusion.

It's yet another distraction for a White House that appears increasingly lost.

Additionally, the Army has been investigating whether or not Flynn received money from the Russian government during a 2015 trip to Moscow because such a payment could violate the Constitution's Emoluments Clause.

The same day that OGE asked to be notified if the White House disciplined Conway, press secretary Sean Spicer stated at the daily press briefing that Conway "has been counseled".

Facebook live stream captures shooting of 2-year-old

Just six days into his presidency, Donald Trump was informed his national security adviser had misled his vice president about contacts with Russian Federation.

"That is what became unsustainable, actually", Conway replied. I think misleading the vice president really was the key here. He's a very loyal person and by night's end Mike Flynn had made a decision to resign.

Representative Adam Schiff of California, the ranking Democrat on the committee, said Republicans don't want to challenge Trump: "They want to get everything they can from this president before the wheels come off, and they don't want to antagonize" and become the target of his wrath on Twitter or elsewhere.

LAUER: But wait a second.

The White House has examined a transcript of a wiretapped conversation that Mr. Flynn had with Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, in December, according to administration officials. The president, who was joined at his Mar-a-Lago estate by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over the weekend, voiced solidarity with Japan.

LAUER: Kellyanne that makes no sense. Last month, the Justice Department warned the White House that General Flynn misled them. "And at that moment he still had the complete trust of the president?" Trump confidante Lieutenant General Michael Flynn is out after being exposed for being less than truthful with the vice president and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about dodgy discussions he had with the Russian ambassador the day President Obama sanctioned Moscow for interfering in the election. There are at least three candidates - very strong candidates that will be considered for a position here.

"You can not have the national security adviser misleading the vice president and others", Mr Ryan said. And the president is moving forward. Flynn's conversations also raise questions about Trump's friendly posture toward Russian Federation after US intelligence agencies concluded that Moscow hacked Democratic emails during the election. The revelation about Flynn's discussion of sanctions with Russian Federation came in a report from the Washington Post.

US President Donald Trump attacked "illegal leaks" in the wake of the departure of national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Conway said she owned some of the clothing from the line and she was going to "give a free commercial".

News outlets are still trying to piece together a full picture of the events that led to Flynn's resignation, how much the Trump administration knew, and when they knew it. Conway's contradictory appearances on cable TV haven't helped bring much of anything into focus.
