WASHINGTON, may 8. /Offset. TASS Dmitry Kirsanov/. The previous President Barack Obama had indeed called his mate Donald trump not to appoint retired General Michael Flynn ‘s assistant for national security. This was confirmed at a regular press briefing the press Secretary of the White house Sean Spicer, commenting on statements of unnamed officials of the former us administration on the recommendations of Obama’s Trump regarding Flynn.

As stated by Spicer, the current head of the US administration would not want to disclose all the details about the hour-long meeting with the predecessor, during which including those considered candidates Flynn. “But it’s true: President Obama conveyed to the (trump) that he is not a fan of General Flynn. It is, frankly, no one should be a surprise, given the fact that General Flynn worked for President Obama, was a public critic of the shortcomings of President Obama, specifically associated with the lack of strategy against ISIS (ISIS banned in Russia) and other threats faced by America,” said Spicer.

“The question that should be asked is the following. If President Obama was really concerned about General Flynn why he has not suspended the admission of General Flynn to work with secret information, again have a month earlier? Also, why the Obama administration allowed General Flynn to go to Russia, where he made a speech, which received a fee?” – said the official representative of the White house.

As reported previously TASS correspondent in Washington, the U.S. Democratic party, which is Obama is trying to fan the dying scandal around Flynn. Former officials of the Obama administration said that he warned his successor-Republican trump against the nomination of Flynn to the post of assistant to the President for national security. According to them, the warning came at a personal meeting between Obama and trump in the oval office of the White house after the November presidential election in the United States.

Under Obama the Democrat Flynn one time headed the Intelligence Department of the Ministry of defense. Trump still made him his assistant for homeland security, but in less than a month sacked due to the fact that Flynn is not fully informed the Vice-President of the USA Michael Pence about his contacts with the Russian Ambassador in Washington.

Displacement Flynn was the result of rabid anti-Russian campaign launched by Democrats and close to them the media under the pretext attributed to Russia’s interference in election processes in the United States on the side of trump. In Moscow, the speculation has repeatedly denied at the highest level. Trump has also rejected them as politicized and designed to divert attention from the true causes of the defeat of the Democrats in the election.
