Speaker transition team Sean Spicer commented on the details of the conversation between Michael Flynn and Sergey Kislyak.
Adviser on national security elected President of the USA Michael Flynn spoke twice by phone with the Russian Ambassador in Washington Sergei Kislyak, however, until the introduction of new sanctions against Russia and 35 expulsion of Russian diplomats, said Friday the speaker of the transitional team Sean Spicer.
“A telephone call (Flynn – ed.) is focused on the logistics organization of the conversation between the Russian President and the President-elect once he is sworn in, so they are (Flynn and Kislyak – ed.) discussed logistical issues. That’s all. Plain and simple,” said Spicer.
Thus, he responded to the publication of The Washington Post, which claimed that a top trump adviser could discuss with the Russian Ambassador the issues of the sanctions imposed by President Obama . “According to a senior US official, Flynn called the Ambassador of Russia Sergey Kislyak several times on December 29, the day when the Obama administration announced the deportation of 35 Russian officials, as well as on other measures in response to a cyber attack. Said Flynn, and wasn’t this contrary to the US sanctions?”- raised the issue of an influential publication.
As said on Friday the representative of trump, Flynn said Kislyak twice after the election, but it was on December 25 to “to wish him a merry Christmas,” and on December 28 – a day before the imposition of sanctions when they talked about the organization of the conversation between trump and Putin after the inauguration.
As you know, Michael Flynn, a former General, led the exploration of the Pentagon resigned in 2014. After that, several times made statements as an expert on Russian propaganda TV channel Russia Today, funded by the government of Russia. He later admitted that he received monetary reward for it. Flynn was also spotted at the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the RT, where he sat at the same table just to the right of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The US President-elect Donald trump in one of his first appointments in his office gave Flynn the post of adviser on national security issues, that impact can be compared with the position of Secretary of state.
