【英语头条】特朗普核心国安幕僚迈克尔·弗林涉“通俄”辞职!

导读:上任不到一个月,美国总统特朗普的国家安全顾问,退役将军迈克尔·弗林Michael Flynn刚刚签署辞职信。他在信中说,自己没能他和俄罗斯大使的通讯联系告知特朗普团队。包括白宫幕僚长、副总统彭斯在内的多名高官曾上电视否认弗林和俄罗斯有过联系。上周,多个监听俄罗斯外交人员的美国情报官爆料,在白宫政权交接期间,弗林和俄罗斯官员确实联系过多次。但是弗林马上否认了通讯中谈到对俄制裁的问题。

U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday night after days of reports over whether he discussed American sanctions against Russia in a phone call with a Russian diplomat before President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Flynn has been the first senior government official to have left the Trump administration since the new leader taking office in January.

Retired Army Gen. Keith Kellogg, a top policy adviser for Trump's presidential campaign, was appointed acting national security adviser, according to local media reports.

Earlier on Monday, it was revealed that the Justice Department had informed the White House that Flynn was not fully forthright about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States and could be vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.

Flynn's status was considered perilous after it was disclosed that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with the ambassador, local media reported.
