Michael Flynn pleads guilty to false-statements charge in Russia probe

December 1, 2017

694940094001_5664479125001_5664468577001-vsFormer National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to a single count of making false statements to the FBI, becoming the latest Trump associate ensnared by Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

As part of the deal, Flynn has agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.

Already, Flynn is saying in court documents that an unnamed “senior official” in the Trump transition team directed him to contact nations including Russia over a United Nations vote – a discussion cited in the charging document Friday.

In a written statement, Flynn said “it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of ‘treason’ and other outrageous acts.”

    From my understanding this request to Flynn to contact the Russians came after Trump was elected…Thus no laws were broken…However why Flynn went on to lie to the FBI about whatever he is supposed to have lied about is a mystery…we still haven’t heard what the questions were the FBI asked of Flynn and what his direct answers were that proved him to be lying to the FBI…Plenty of speculation out there what happened but no direct testimony from the FBI what really went on behind those closed doors.
