Graham asked Yates if she objected to the use of the Logan Act against Michael Flynn and she agreed that, while they never made an official decision, it was unlikely that they would prosecute the Logan Act because it wasn’t their primary concern. She told Graham “it’s not a Logan Act violation, it was a counterintelligence concern.”
Graham suggested to Yates that she didn’t authorize the interview of Michael Flynn, but rather wanted to go to the White House and tell them about the counterintelligence concerns, to which she agreed saying “That’s right, I didn’t. I thought that was the more immediate issue that needed to be addressed.”
Graham followed up by asking Yates “When you heard about the interview, you got upset didn’t you?” Yates responded “I was upset that Director Comey didn’t coordinate that with us and acted unilaterally. Yes I was.”
Graham then asks “Did Comey go rogue?” Yates responded “You could use that term, yes.”
The clip ends with Graham saying “Finally!”
