The Trump White House is referring to former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn as a 'former Obama Official' according to Newsweek.

Flynn—who was a prominent surrogate during President Donald Trump's campaign, worked on Trump's transition team and served as Trump's national security adviser—was a "former Obama administration official," the White House's lawyer said in a statement.

Trump's attorney fails to mention that Obama fired Mike Flynn in 2014.

According to all three former officials, Obama warned Trump against hiring Flynn. The Obama administration fired Flynn in 2014 from his position as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, largely because of mismanagement and temperament issues.
