Multiple sources have reported that during their White House meeting last November, former President Barrack Obama warned Donald Trump about hiring Michael Flynn.
Three former Obama officials spoke with NBC and said that Trump and Obama spoke about Flynn’s role at a Nov. 10 meeting at the White House.
During that meeting Obama advised Trump not t hire Flynn as his national security adviser.
In the last few weeks, Trump has been putting the blame for Flynn on the Obama administration.
Trump tweeted on Monday, the “fake news” media rarely reports that Obama gave Flynn “the highest security clearance.”

Obviously Trump completely dismissed Obama’s warning and went on to hire Flynn, a month later Flynn resigned after reports emerged that he has misled senior White House officials about his contacts with Russia.
