(NEWS CENTER) -- Multiple former Obama administration officials have confirmed that President-elect Trump was warned about the prospect keeping association with Mike Flynn in 2017.

According to NBC News, the subject was raised the first time that Pres. Obama met with then President-elect Trump just 48 hours after the election was called for Trump.
