Former President Obama warned Donald Trump against hiring Mike Flynn as his national security adviser, three former Obama administration officials tell NBC News.
NBC News reports, “Former President Obama warned President Donald Trump against hiring Mike Flynn as his national security adviser, three former Obama administration officials tell NBC News.The warning, which has not been previously reported, came less than 48 hours after the November election when the two sat down for a 90-minute conversation in the Oval Office….According to all three former officials, Obama warned Trump against hiring Flynn. The Obama administration fired Flynn in 2014 from his position as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, largely because of mismanagement and temperament issues.”
This bombshell comes hours before Sally Yates testimony on Capitol Hill about Michael Flynn. It also comes after Donald Trump attacked Obama on Twitter over Flynn’s security clearance.
General Flynn was given the highest security clearance by the Obama Administration – but the Fake News seldom likes talking about that.

The White House’s blame Obama strategy just blew up in their faces. This all leads right back to Donald Trump. He was warned, but hired Flynn anyway. It’s on him. The dominoes are falling one by one…..
