US President Donald Trump described leaks to the media as “the real story,” after Michael Flynn quit his post as national security adviser.
Trump tweeted, “The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?”
North Korea recently tested a ballistic missile.
According to a New York Times report published online on February 13, Flynn said in his resignation letter that he “inadvertently” gave US Vice President Mike Pence and others “incomplete information” about his phone calls with Russian envoy to the US Sergey Kislyak.
The resignation came after Flynn was reported to have “misled” administration officials regarding the conversations.
