The American leader said that the scale of possible leaks from the Komi Republic can be much higher than was known before.
The scandal began after Komi Republic, speaking on June 8 in the Senate, admitted that he had informed the media about the content of their conversations with trump. In particular, he gave reporters a copy of the record of a personal interview with the President. According to him, they were driven by the hope that this will force the American authorities to appoint a special Prosecutor to investigate the case of Russian interference in the internal Affairs of the country.
Based on these data, may 11, The New York Times has published an article, containing information that trump demanded of the Komi Republic to terminate the investigation against the former assistant homeland security Michael Flynn. He was dismissed from his post February 13, 2017 in connection with a publicly expressed suspicion that he “gave incomplete information” about contacts with the Russian Ambassador in Washington Sergei Kislyak.
Komi was dismissed from his post as Director of the FBI on may 10. According to trump, Komi admitted forgery, closed the investigation against the former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton concerning the use of electronic mail for transmission of information constituting a state secret.
