WASHINGTON – the Shift of explanations for why President Donald Trump fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to renew questions about whether Trump may have obstructed an ongoing investigation of potential contacts between his campaign and Russia.
Pressure on the administration has mounted since Flynn last week pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the reach of the Russians on the president’s name.
The confused reaction of the White House has alarmed a number of Trump closest confidants, who have grown increasingly concerned that Trump is not well-served by his legal team.
The chairman of the staff and the legal advisors have scrambled eggs for 48 hours to lay out on a Saturday tweet, which suggested Trump knew Flynn lied to the FBI when he fired him.
The White House has already said that Trump does not write the tweet.
