UPDATE 3:31 p.m.:
FBI agents interviewed former national security advisor Michael Flynn in the first days of the Trump administration, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
The specifics of what Flynn said to the FBI are not yet clear.
ORIGINAL STORY: White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said former national security advisor Michael Flynn resigned over a trust issue, not due to the content of his conversation with Russia before President Trump was inaugurated.
Flynn resigned after it was reported that he lied to Vice President Pence about whether his calls with Russia involved sanctions.
Spicer said Trump was involved in daily meetings for "weeks" regarding Flynn until "eroding trust" led him to ask for Flynn's resignation.
Rewatch Spicer's press briefing here.
There was nothing that Flynn did in terms of conducting himself that was an issue.
Spicer said he first mentioned the issue with Flynn's calls on Jan. 13. The Department of Justice did not notify the White House until weeks later.
He also said Flynn had misled other people about his calls, not just Pence.
He also said Trump did not tell Flynn to talk to Russia.
He said the reason Flynn stayed on so long was due to evaluating his trustworthiness.
If there was nothing wrong w/ what Flynn did, as Spicer keeps insisting, then why did he lie about it to Pence, i.e. the "erosion of trust"?— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) February 14, 2017
But some critics and observers were not satisfied by that explanation.
Spicer's explanation is riddled with contradictions. Only explanation: it's attempt to hide whether Trump directed Flynn to engage Russians.— Matt McDermott (@mattmfm) February 14, 2017
Spicer also told journalists the fact that all of this information came through leaks was a story worth pursuing in the media.
Spicer also said there is a "skiff" where Trump can discuss classified information at Mar-a-Lago. It was previously reported that Trump was discussing classified information in public after North Korea launched a ballistic missile.
Spicer said Trump was discussing "press logistics" when a photo captured the discussion.
