In case of his former security advisor Michael Flynn, US president Donald Trump has reinforced attacks on FBI. "Flynn lied, and y destroyed his life," he told journalists in Washington with regard to indictment of ex-General, who had already shown himself in matter. "I think that's a shame," he said, and expressed sympathy for Flynn, who was treated "very unfair."
Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to have lied to FBI federal police about his contacts with Russian government. This sparked a fierce debate in Washington on weekend, in which Trump criticized federal police and, in particular, his former boss James Comey harshly. "After years of Comey as a leader, with fake and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), reputation of FBI is battered – as bad as never in history!", Trump tweeted on Sunday. "But don't be afraid," he added, looking at his nominated Comey successor Chris Wray, "We're going to make it great again."
After years of Comey, with phonys and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running FBI, its reputation is in Tatters-worst in history! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2017 suspicious tweets from Oval Office
In view of se tweets, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham urged president to restraint. His comments on ongoing investigation were a danger, he said. His Democratic counterpart, Dianne Feinstein, even sees possible criminal consequences on Trump. The tweets suggested a criminal denial in Russian affair, she told NBC television station. They believe that Trump had fired former FBI director Comey because he didn't want to hire investigation in Russian affair.
The central issue of affair is wher Russia has influenced US presidential election in favor of trumps and wher re have been collusion with staff from Trump's campaign team. Trump and government in Moscow reject this. Flynn could turn out to be a key witness after agreeing to collaborate with investigator Robert Mueller, saying that senior members from Trump's team knew about his contacts with Russia – according to reports Was among m also Trump's son-in-law Jared Kusher.
Trump also unimpressed on Monday, trying to relativize Flynn's behavior with allegedly worse behavior of his Democratic rival in 2016 election campaign, Hillary Clinton. The former first lady and foreign minister had "lied to FBI many times and nothing happened". He did not lay down any evidence or details for his accusations.
Report: "Anti-Trump FBI agent led Clinton email probe" Now it all starts to make sense!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2017
Trump has already spoken on weekend on occasion of a revelation demeaningly about investigator team at Mueller. According to this, one of investigators was to be deducted in summer because he had expressed himself negatively about Trump in SMS. The same investigator was also involved in investigation into Hillary Clinton's email affair about use of a private server. Trump saw this as a clear proof that FBI is intrigued against him. "Report: Anti-Trump FBI agent headed Clinton's email investigation. Now it all starts to make sense, "he wrote on Twitter.Indignation in Kremlin
The turbulence around Flynn's admission also led to a reaction in Moscow. Flynn had asked n ambassador in Washington, Sergei Kisljak, to work in Kremlin to ensure that Government did not escalate situation according to U.S. President Barack Obamaverhängten US sanctions against Russia.
His spokesman now rejected such an influence on Russian President Vladimir Putin. It was "absurd" to assume that such a phone call could have influenced Putin. "The president makes his own decisions, headed solely by Russia's interests," said Peskow. "Flynn had not been able to ask Sergei Ivanovich (Kisljak) for anything and, what is more, such requests are not forwarded to Russian president."
