Yates Goes On CNN To Declare That Russians Had ‘Real Leverage’ Over FlynnPosted: May 17, 2017 Filed under: Breaking News, Crime & Corruption, Foreign Policy, Law & Justice, Russia | Tags: CNN, FBI, Flynn, Yates Leave a comment
I have previously been critical of the stance taken by former acting Attorney General Sally Yates. I remained unconvinced that Yates had the ethical basis to order for the entire Justice Department to stand down and not to assist the president in the defense of his first executive order on immigration. I also questioned Yates’ decision to voluntarily testify before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. She was testifying as someone who was recently in a prosecutorial position about subjects related to an ongoing investigation where no one has yet to be indicted. Now those concerns have been magnified by Yates’ appearance in the media to talk about matters center to the ongoing investigation at the Justice Department and other related subjects.
