The President's counsel, Don McGahn, convened a meeting with Trump and a small circle of advisers.
Sean Spicer is a seasoned pro, deeply experienced with the press.
Moulton's statement comes amid controversy over Trump's alleged ties to Russian Federation. Less than an hour later, Spicer tells reporters that the president is "evaluating the situation".
"The Trump administration has yet to be forthcoming about who was aware of Flynn's conversations with the ambassador and whether he was acting on the instructions of the president or any other officials, or with their knowledge".
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement that the "the American people deserve to know the full extent of Russia's financial, personal and political grip on President Trump and what that means for our national security". Nunes has said he's not interested in investigating Flynn. According to the FBI, Flynn and Kislyak discussed existing and new sanctions. A bipartisan smackdown came swiftly and Spicer said she had been "counseled".
Congressional Republicans, meanwhile, continue to stonewall any investigation of Russia's influence over the Trump administration.
Top GOP senators have already started beating the drum for investigations. John McCain said. "Who is in charge?"
Joining his call were Sen.
February 9 - Flynn, through his spokesman, backs away from his comments, according to the Post.
"And I want to know, 'Did General Flynn do this by himself or was he directed by somebody to do it?' " the South Carolina Republican added.
Trump panned the report as "fake news" and said he had "nothing to do with Russian Federation". Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut told reporters.
"Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador".
Flynn's departure was the most dramatic moment yet of Trump's young presidency, a 24-day period during which his White House has been repeatedly distracted by miscues and internal dramas. "Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?"
Spicer on Tuesday also denied there had been any contact between any member of Trump's campaign team and Russian Federation.
California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Flynn's resignation "does not end questions over his contacts with the Russians".
Trump didn't directly address the veracity of the report during a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but lashed out at what he called the "criminal act" of leaking information.
Sources say transcripts showed the two discussed Obama administration sanctions on Russian Federation, a possible violation of federal law since President Trump was not yet in office.
The communications were gathered as part of routine United States intelligence collection and not because people close to Trump were being targeted.
Trump has also refused to release his tax returns to rebut claims that he is not being truthful when he says he has no investments or exposure to Russian Federation. Flynn resigned as President Donald Trump's national security advis.
"I don't remember talking to any Russian officials, ever".
The same day, McGahn informed Trump and senior aides about Yates' concerns.
Trump named retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg as the acting national security adviser.
Trump has reportedly offered Vice Admiral Robert Harward the National Security Advisor job.
But retired General and ex-CIA chief David Petraeus is also said to be making a run for the job.
In 2010, Flynn authored a controversial report that claimed the USA intelligence community was not studying relevant information required to fight foreign enemies. He makes a surprise appearance at a daily White House briefing and delivers a message to Iran.
