Sally Yates is described as being motivated and ready to set the record straight about the warning that she gave the White House about Mike Flynn’s Russia activities when he testifies before the Senate.
CNN reported, “Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates is prepared to testify before a Senate panel next week that she gave a forceful warning to the White House regarding then-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn nearly three weeks before he was fired, contradicting the administration’s version of events, sources familiar with her account tell CNN….But because of the classified nature of the information, she is unlikely to explain in detail what specific information prompted her to raise concerns with the White House about his alleged ties to the Russians. She is, though, expected to give her version of events when she informed the White House about her concerns that Flynn may have been “compromised” by the Russians, contradicting Spicer’s comment that Yates was simply giving officials a “heads up” about the then-national security advisor, the source said.”
Yates was the reason why the Trump White House had Devin Nunes cancel a meeting of the House Intelligence Committee because she has knowledge and information that directly contradicts the Trump White House version of the events surrounding Mike Flynn’s firing.
The White House doesn’t want Sally Yates to testify because her testimony will expose many of the lies that the Trump has been using as part of their Russia scandal cover-up. Sally Yates may not be able to go into detail, but to have an eyewitness testify that the White House isn’t telling the truth is a very important.
Day after day, the Russia scandal constantly haunts the Trump White House. No matter what they do, they can’t shake the scandal. The testimony of Sally Yates will set the wheels in motion. The White House will try to frame Yates as a partisan and a disgruntled public servant who Trump fired, but the reality is that she knows things that this White House doesn’t want the public to know, and she is about to tell her story to Congress.
The Russia scandal is about to get real for Donald Trump.
