Jake Tapper Calls out Trump for Claiming He Was Never Warned About Michael Flynn: ‘Who Didn’t Warn You?’

‘Why didn’t anyone warn you about Flynn, Mr. President’


TAPPER: "'Why was I not told so that I could make a change,' the President asked today. If only someone had told him. Someone like, say, President Obama, face to face, less than 48 hours after Trump won the presidency. Obama warned Trump against hiring Flynn during their post-election meeting in the Oval Office. At least one former Obama Administration official telling CNN that Obama thought Flynn was not the right person for the job, partially because 'Flynn’s name kept popping up' in the ongoing FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Why didn’t anyone warn you about Flynn, Mr. President? Who didn’t warn you about Flynn?"
