According to former Obama administration officials, the president personally warned Trump not to hire Michael Flynn after the election.
The warning came during an Oval Office meeting between Obama and Trump after the Republican’s victory. Flynn had been fired by the Obama administration as the head of the military’s intelligence branch.
Trump ultimately tapped Flynn as national security adviser, but fired him after less than a month. The White House says Flynn was fired for misleading top officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.
The Trump regime more or less confirmed this account with an idiotic statement released this morning.

While confirming that President Obama brought up the issue of Michael Flynn during their meeting, they also blame Obama for Trump's decision to hire him.
Because Trump only hires "the best people," right? Only Trump can fix it. Extreme vetting, etc.
Michael Flynn was serving as a foreign agent of Russia and Turkey the entire time he spent close to Trump.
