A CNN panel on Tuesday morning predicted that the much anticipated testimony of former acting Attorney General Sally Yates before the Senate Intelligence Committee on May 8th would not be “a pleasant day.”
CNN’s David Chalian claimed that he believes Yates’ testimony, which is currently set to take place next month, would not “be a pleasant day” for the Trump team. He believed this because he expects that Yates will deliver a damning assessment of the Trump administration’s reaction to possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“She was the one, as acting attorney general, that went running to the White House counsel to say, ‘Hey, Michael Flynn wasn’t truthful’…. Now she’s going to detail… what she learned. And I don’t think this administration is going to want to revisit Michael Flynn, whom they jettisoned.”
Chris Cuomo then chimed in to say that the Trump administration had to “be careful” about throwing Flynn under because “if he testifies, they may not like what he tells them.”
While Yates served as Attorney General, she voiced concerns about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn with members of the Trump administration.
After Yates was fired by the Trump Administration for refusing to defend the president’s controversial travel ban, the White House released a statement where they claimed Yates betrayed the Department of Justice.
