Kellyanne Conway Is No Longer Welcome on 'Morning Joe'

Mr. Flynn, who served in the job for less than a month, stepped down following days of reports that he had spoken to the ambassador about American sanctions against Russian Federation in late December, weeks before Mr. Trump's inauguration. He said that the White House had been reviewing and evaluating this issue for the last few weeks and was trying to "ascertain the truth".

Hours later, Flynn resigned as national security adviser.

Fox also reported, in a separate article, that Pence had accepted Flynn's apology, and that speculation about Flynn's ouster was "palace intrigue" and "all squawk".

Flynn's departure comes after he acknowledged he had misled the government over his discussions with Russian Federation concerning United States sanctions against Moscow. He added that the news reporting was "merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign".

Mr Shaub asked the White House to notify him of its findings by February 28.

"I recommend that the White House investigate Ms. Conway's actions and consider taking disciplinary action against her", Walter Shaub, who was appointed to his position by President Obama in 2013, wrote to the White House counsel's office.

Brzezinski said Conway has tried to get booked on Morning Joe, but she won't appear on the show in the future. "I only hear it in the negative context". As a result, the Justice Department feared the Mr. Flynn could be vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow. Trump tweeted angrily Wednesday that The New York Times and Washington Post got information "illegally".

Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador. "But the White House knew about that last month". Conway maintained that Flynn stepped down of his own accord after it became clear that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about a conversation he had in December with a Russian diplomat. Obviously, Gen. Keith Kellogg is the acting national security adviser starting today. Pence learned about the Justice Department warnings to the White House around the same time. The president was informed of the warnings the same day, Spicer said.

It was not immediately known what questions the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked of Flynn or what he told law enforcement officials.

Flynn's decision to step down from his post follows mounting controversy over a Washington Post story alleging that he discussed easing sanctions against Russia with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office. Reportedly among them are former CIA Director retired Gen. David Petraeus, and retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward.

President Donald Trump's embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned late Monday night, following reports that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russian Federation.

"It wasn't about sanctions". The president did not receive a question about Flynn's future from the two reporters who were called upon, and he ignored journalists' shouted follow-up inquiries as he left the room. According to Flynn, he told Kislyak, "Look, I know this happened".
