(ABCNEWS/KGTV) -- Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, said today that she "did not know" whether the president and vice president were made aware three weeks ago that Michael Flynn, who resigned as national security adviser on Monday night, had misled the public and was possibly susceptible to blackmail because of his preinauguration conversations with Russia's U.S. ambassador.
 
Flynn resigned because his job had become "increasingly unsustainable," Conway said on "Good Morning America" today, attributing the incidents that led to his resignation to forgetfulness or misleading information.
 
She said that Flynn had a conversation with Vice President Mike Pence but that the information he gave at that time "turned out to not be true."
 
"I'm not here to say who knew what when," Conway said, after being repeatedly pressed on what Trump and Pence knew regarding Flynn's call to the Russian ambassador before the inauguration. "I don't know all the details."
 
"Why does the President ask Kellyanne Conway to come on our program if she can't answer a yes or no question," GMA host George Stephanopoulos remarked.
