Trump Accuses Sally Yates Of Leaking "Classified Information Into The Newspapers"

Sally Yates

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Later today at 2:30PM EST, former Acting Attorney General  Sally Yates and Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer more questions about “Russian Interference in the 2016 United States Election.”  As it turns out, President Trump has a couple of suggested additions to the question list for Ms. Yates, which he decided to share this morning over Twitter.

“Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. Council.”

Yates, who was fired by Trump after her refusal to back his controversial immigration order (see “Trump Fires Acting Attorney General Yates For “Betrayal“), is expected to give her account of the warnings she gave to the White House regarding former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

Yates reportedly told the White House that Flynn might have misled the administration about the content of his communications with Sergey Kislyak.  Which, of course, turned out to be true and resulted in Trump also firing Flynn in February after reports he misled Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials were confirmed.

Of course, Trump seems to be more worried about what Yates said after she offered up her warning to the White House…

    Do a real investigation and if she guilty throw her in jail. Its not rocket science. How are people like this (Killary) not in jail yet. Does the law not apply to certain people?

      Hillary Clinton has had the FBI completely covering her back over unsafe and illegal email conduct. The Democrats claimed FBI Director Comey damaged their election campaign in last weeks of 2016 US electoral cycle, but actually nothing could be further from the bigger picture truth, Comey completely shielded Clinton then and continues to do so now. The FBI’s Deputy Director was even further in Clinton’s pocket as his wife is a Democrat politician, receiving direct Clinton aligned campaign funding. As for outgoing POTUS Obama’s Justice Department – their motives were always a pure self protection racket – for Obama who was compromised by sending emails to an unsecured server and Hillary as the Democrat POTUS heir apparent.

      @ michael Harrison,

      Whatever laws of logic were applied, to beat a $1,2 billion add campaign is a staggering accomplishment.

      Blair, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfie, Perl and the entire 5th column parasites that are still parading through town like justice only concerns law abiding citizens, not those who create laws and are above them, should be dangling from eco-friendly trees.

      Know the ins and outs, and the transit to an exit will most likely be an unhindered one…

        Only a mastermind like Putin , or Jeffrey Epstein, could have derailed a sure win.

    Laws do not apply to Zionist, as Zionist write the laws to govern their non-Zionist subjects.
    That is why Hillary or Bill will never see prison, or Bush or other Bush or Obama.
    They served Israel well by giving Israel billions of dollars for free, weapons for free, and all USA technology to Israel for free.
    Israel is at war against all Monotheist around the world. They only worship the faults Christ, who the bible says the faults Christ will be a Jew.

    Historically most classified leaks come from the White House. Perhaps Trump should be looking closer to home for the source. Yates had nothing to gain from a leak. Enemies of Flynn within the administratio had everything to gain.

    Somebody outed a number of Trump staffers in the press citing a document restricted under anti-terrorism legislation as the source of the information. Trump’s right she needs to be asked about this. If she was the news ‘source’10 years in jail should age her nicely.
