Spicer: ‘It came down to a matter of trust with Flynn’

‘Flynn committed no known legal violations’

WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — The White House addressed Michael Flynn’s resignation Tuesday, and said that the president’s reaction was “decisive,” but there had to be some type of “due process” and that’s what took some time.

At the briefing, the corporate press was all over Press Sec. Sean Spicer and kept asking Spicer why it took so long to get rid of Flynn if officials were aware of the situation several weeks ago. However, Spicer held his ground and made it clear that once the president was briefed on the situation that it was only a short time before Gen. Flynn was questioned by officials on several occasions.

“There is nothing that the general did that was a violation of any sort […] What it came down to was a matter of trust,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in the briefing.

“What it came down to plain and simple was him misleading the Vice President and others and not having a firm grasp on his recollection of that.”

Michael Flynn resigned as the president’s National Security Adviser late Monday as the controversy hit a boiling point.
