His administration dealt a significant blow after not even a month in
office, President Donald Trump must now fill a vital national security
post after the resignation of embattled national security adviser
Flynn stepped down late Monday,
ending days of speculation about his fate following reports that he had
misled Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts
Flynn conceded that discussions of sanctions may have come up during several calls with the Russian ambassador during the transition period leading up to Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration.
He acknowledged that he gave “incomplete information” about those
discussions to Pence who, apparently relying on information from the
national security adviser, initially said Flynn had not discussed
sanctions with the Russian envoy.
