conversations with russia's ambassador. flynn writing, "i inadvertently briefed the vice president elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the russian ambassador." flynn had previously told pence he did not discuss sanctions with the russian envoy, a false claim the vice president repeated on national tv. >> what i can confirm having spoken to him about it is that those conversations that happened to occur around the time that the united states took action to expel diplomats had nothing whatsoever to do with those sanctions. >> but that turned out to be false. administration officials told abc news the justice department warned the white house weeks ago that flynn may have misled officials and was potentially vulnerable to blackmail by the russians. on friday, flynn apologized to the president and vice president. but monday night in the oval office, the president met questions about flynn with silence. >> do you have confidence in
michael flynn, mr. president? >> what are you evaluating -- >> the search now begins for flynn's replacement. trump named retired lieutenant general keith kellogg, the current chief of staff for the nse as act agnational security advisor. two other names under consideration, robert harwood and retired general david petraeus. he's expected at the white house later today. arlette saenz, abc news, washington. all of this and the white house is dealing with yet another legal setback in president trump's efforts to reinstate his travel ban. >> the same federal judge in seattle who trump referred to as a so-called judge for putting his order on hold has now ruled the lawsuit against the ban can move forward. >> the justice department asked the judge to postpone the case until a new decision might come from the 9th circuit court of pails in san francisco. president trump has hinted that he may be rewriting that
executive order sometime this week. president trump spent a full day with canadian prime minister justin trudeau yesterday at the white house. >> despite sharp differences on trade, climate change and most notably immigration and refugees, the two world leaders managed to find some common ground carefully moving between bridging some gaps and completely avoiding others. >> we are going to have a great relationship with canada, maybe as good or better hopefully than ever before. >> the last thing canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern themselves. >> president trump would not comment on whether he felt america's northern border with canada is insecure and trudeau would not criticize the president's executive order restricting immigration. >> there's new criticism for the president after he was seen discussing a national security issue in full view of members of his club in florida. >> abc's jonathan karl explains.
