The View Sally Yates Flynn Video


On Monday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Sally Yates testifying about Mike Flynn and Donald Trump. Watch the video below.

Yates, the former attorney general, testified about believing Flynn was compromised. She warned Trump’s administration about the national security adviser’s Russia ties, and it emerged former president Barack Obama warned Trump’s White House, too. Despite those warnings, Trump still hired Flynn and delayed firing him.

Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg asked, “If 55 people [are] telling you there’s a problem, why would you ignore the red flags?” Jedediah Bila shared that sentiment, admitting, “This concerned me a lot.” Sunny Hostin said of Trump, “He doesn’t understand the law. He has a fundamental misunderstanding of that.”

As evidence, she brought up a tweet the president sent prior to the hearing, in which he tried to dictate what Yates should talk about. “What’s crazy about that is you have a president who’s witness tampering, who’s threatening,” Hostin said. Goldberg went on to point out that Obama didn’t “have to tell you jack,” yet he did, and Trump still ignored his advice.

“Someone’s saying ‘fire, fire, fire, we’re burning here,’ and they’re going, ‘no we’re not,” the moderator said. But as everyone now knows, there was indeed a fire after all. Check out video of the full discussion below.
