As it was reported by a White House official on Tuesday, February 14th, Michael Flynn resigned from the position of adviser to the U.S. president Donald Trump on security issues.

Republican Joseph Keith Kellogg, who acted as Chief of Staff and Executive Secretary of the United States National Security Council, was appointed as Acting National Security Adviser for Trump.

A few hours before Flynn’s resignation press secretary of the White House Sean Spicer said that Trump “assesses the situation” with Michael Flynn regarding a report that he, without having the appropriate authority, discussed Washington’s anti-Russian sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak over the phone.
