Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI, vows to cooperate in Mueller’s Russia probe

(Worthy News) – Former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to making false statements to FBI agents, admitting that he lied to investigators when he said he didn’t ask Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. to limit Moscow’s reaction to U.S. sanctions during the presidential transition.

The charge was brought as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible coordination with members of the Trump campaign, and it brings Mr. Mueller’s probe for the first time into the president’s inner circle.

Mr. Flynn, a lieutenant general in the Army, was the president’s top national security aide for a month until he resigned in February for having misled Vice President Mike Pence about the extent of his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
