The whistle blowing site specifically pointed out to the Intelligence community, the media and the Democratic Party in a tweet concerning the unfortunate occurrence.
WikiLeaks stated that President Trump's National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigned after the destabilization campaign was unleashed by the US spies, Democrats and, the Press.
Julian Assange, who is the founder of the whistle blowing site branded the back and forth conflict between President Trump and the U.S. Intelligence a battle for dominance, adding that an amazing battle for dominance is playing out between the elected U.S. gov't and the Intelligence Community that considers itself as the permanent government.
Flynn's announcement came on Monday when reports that he indicated that he misled Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials on the details surrounding the phone call with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. Flynn had previously declined discussing sanctions that were imposed by the Obama administration over allegations of election-related hacking.
Flynn pointed out in his resignation letter that due to the fast pace of events, he inadvertently briefed the Vice President and others with incomplete information surrounding his phone calls with the Russian ambassador.
Following leaks from former and current U.S. government officials, the information surrounding the phone calls became available to journalists at the New York Times and the Washington Post.
An FBI wiretap made it possible for the leaks to include a description by intelligence officials concerning the conversation. There were also other leaks that revealed that F.B.I agents interviewed Flynn about the call just days after Trump's presidency.
During an interview with the Daily Caller, Flynn admitted that he discussed the 35 expelled Russian diplomats during the call but he denied that more specific mention was made concerning the sanctions.
Flynn pointed out he never promised the Russian ambassador that Trump's administration was going to review the sanctions, adding that he just acknowledged that he knew what had happened and that everything was going to be reviewed. Flynn also termed the leaks as a criminal act.
President Trump similarly condemned the leaks on Tuesday, as he asked why so many leaks were coming from Washington D.C.<<Back
