Trump Administration seeks to block Sally Yates testimony. Why? What do they have to hide?
Former acting attorney general Sally Yates is being blocked from testifying to Congress in the House investigation of links between Russian officials and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,
Yates was fired by Trump in January. Yates and other former intelligence officials had been asked to testify before the House Intelligence Committee this week.
Yates and former CIA director John Brennan had made clear to government officials by Thursday that their testimony to the committee probably would contradict some statements that White House officials had made.
In January, Yates warned White House counsel Donald McGahn that statements White House officials made about Flynn’s contact with the ambassador were incorrect, and could therefore expose the national security adviser to future blackmail by the Russians.
Yates is willing to testify. The Trump administration is claiming she cannot without their permission. Therefore, Chairman Nunes cancelled the hearing involving Yates.
