(FOX NEWS) – President Trump’s embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday night, Fox News reported.
Flynn, in his resignation letter, wrote that he “inadvertently” briefed top officials with incomplete information regarding his call with the Russian ambassador.
“I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology,” the letter read.
Trump has named Lt. Gen Joseph Keith Kellogg, Jr., as his acting national security adviser.
The White House earlier said Trump was “evaluating the situation” regarding Flynn’s conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., deepening the uncertainty surrounding Flynn’s future in the new administration.
Flynn apologized privately for the controversy to Vice President Mike Pence, according to a White House official. Pence, relying on information from Flynn, publicly vouched that the retired Army lieutenant general did not discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia in calls late last year. Flynn has since told the White House that sanctions may have come up.
