National Security Advisor Flynn Has "The Full Confidence Of The President" Despite Rumors He Lied


White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on MSNBC today, and in an interview with Steve Kornacki stated that beleaguered National Security Advisor Michael Flynn “does enjoy the full confidence of the President.”

This comes as more questions are being asked whether Flynn had inappropriate conversations with Russian nationals before Donald Trump became president.

Last week, the Washington Post reported that Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador and, either through direct statement or insinuation, discussed the sanctions President Obama ordered on Russia for interfering in the U.S. presidential campaign.

When asked if Flynn did or did not discuss those sanctions with the Russian ambassador, Conway dodged today:

"You're asking me 'What did he talk about with people when I wasn't on the phone. So the only way for me to answer that is to tell you what he has said, which is that he can't recall."

Prior to the publication of the Washington Post piece, Flynn was adamant that he did not discuss the sanctions. The day after, Flynn's story shifted to not being sure if he did or didn't discuss the sanction.
