The former national secutiry adviser Michael Flynn has resigned today. The main reason is misled US government over his talks with Russian ambassador in Washington, Sergei Kislyak, before Trump sworn in as president.
Flynn is said to have misled officials about his call with Russia’s ambassador before his own appointment.
It is illegal for private citizens to conduct US diplomacy.
US reports said earlier the White House had been warned about the contacts last month and had been told Flynn might be vulnerable to Russian blackmail.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia would not be commenting on the resignation.
“This is the internal affair of the Americans, the internal affair of the Trump administration,” he added. “It’s nothing to do with us.”
Conclusion: Never talk with a Russian diplomat privately
