Barack Obama On Trump's Coronavirus Response: ‘An Absolute Chaotic Disaster’

  • Former and current presidents do not usually criticize each other but Barack Obama and Donald Trump are in increasingly open conflict

Flynn later pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about whether he had talked with the Russian ambassador about US sanctions on Moscow and an upcoming United Nations vote.

"No more talk!" Trump urged. He's spoken out publicly against Trump on rare occasions, frustrating many Democrats who have wanted him to be more aggressive in calling out his successor.

He told the Obama Alumni Association: "I am hoping that all of you feel the same sense of urgency that I do". "Who can believe a thing like this?" In recent days, Trump and his allies have aggressively pushed conspiracy theories about Obama created to fire up the president's conservative base, taint Biden by association and distract from the glut of grim health and economic news from the coronavirus pandemic.

The "unmasking" requests were made in response to a National Security Agency foreign intelligence report that generically referred to an individual.

The memo was ordered declassified by acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell.

A National Security Agency document identifies Joe Biden as among a group of officials who may have received information on "unmasking" of Mike Flynn in the final days of the Obama administration.

It comes a week after Atty.

According to evidence revealed just last week, however, the agents involved - including Peter Strzok of the infamous "insurance policy" text exchange - conspired to keep the investigation of Flynn open without any merit and doctored the interview memorandum to frame the retired Army general, prompting the Department of Justice to drop all charges in the case.

On Wednesday, Sullivan made it clear he was not convinced.

USA treasury secretary says jobless rate may have hit 25 pct
Some of Trump's top economic advisers emphasized on Sunday, May 10, the importance of states getting more businesses and offices open.

In its motion to drop charges, the Justice Department says Comey had no good reason to continue the counter-intelligence investigation into Flynn after it was scheduled to close.

Bates retweeted a message that implied the outrage over the unmasking was actually an expression of racism against former President Barack Obama.

Flynn's calls with former Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak got picked up by U.S. intelligence intercepts during the transition.

The news that the government would not pursue its case against Flynn "has been somewhat downplayed", Obama said. "In general, senior officials make the requests when necessary to understand the underlying intelligence". "We have an economic crisis, we have a health crisis", Biden said. The Justice Department is conducting an investigation into the origins of the Russian Federation probe that ensnared Flynn and other Trump associates.

Mr Obama has said he wants to play a larger role supporting Joe Biden in the presidential election in November.

Although Mueller wrapped up his investigation in March previous year, Trump remains intently focused on it. He also criticized the Trump White House's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Mueller's gang didn't find that I did much, did they?" he said.

The requests for the information came as US officials were scrutinizing Russian election interference on Trump's behalf and trying to determine whether Trump associates were involved in that effort. Flynn later pleased guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about those talks with Kislyak.
