Newsline: US national security adviser resigns after phone calls with Russian ambassador

National security adviser Michael Flynn resigned, citing “incomplete information” that he provided top White House officials about his dealings with the Russian ambassador. “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice-president elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador,” Flynn wrote in a public statement. “I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology.” Trump immediately named Lt. General Joseph Keith Kellogg, Jr., as acting national security adviser, the White House reported. Former acting attorney general Sally Yates warned the White House that Flynn was misleading about the interactions with the ambassador, an official told USA TODAY.
