Kellyanne Conway said that President Trump’s national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, enjoys “the full confidence of the president.”
The president’s counselor made the remark Monday after reports surfaced that Flynn had allegedly discussed sanctions before the inauguration with Russia’’s ambassador to the United States, and then possibly lied to Vice President Mike Pence about it.
“General Flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the president,” Conway said. “It’s a big week for General Flynn. He’s the point of contact for many of these foreign visits. Obviously the national security advisor is a very important point person.”
When asked if it was true that Flynn apologized to Pence, Conway said, “I won’t reveal that.”
“It’s a conversation between the vice president and the national security adviser.”
