Michael Flynn, the national security adviser dismissed by President Trump. Spicer argued that the Trump transition team didn’t vet Flynn’s appointment because he already held a security clearance at the time. “My only point is that when Gen. Flynn came into the White House, he had an active security clearance that was issued during the Obama administration with all the information that’s being discussed that occurred in 2015,” Spicer said at the daily press briefing.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte faced pushback on Saturday at a regional summit over his efforts to weaken Southeast Asian resistance to Chinese expansionism in the contested South China Sea, diplomats said.
