And we mean that literally. On Monday it emerged that former leader Barack Obama had apparently warned Trump of Michael Flynn ‘s misdeeds with Russia well before it ever came to light. According to reports, Obama, had actually issued warnings to Trump during the initial “transition of power” between the two when Trump first took office.
Sean Spicer took to the White House press table on Monday to confirm that reports of Obama warning Trump were indeed true but downplayed them as anything other than “informal”. Spicer claimed in press briefings that Trump “made his own decision”.
Interestingly, Trump had gotten the warning at least a month if not more before he took office. The warnings went largely ignored as Trump felt they “weren’t tangible at the time” (per reports).
