Former Trump aide Flynn pleads guilty to lying about Russian Federation links

Former Trump aide Flynn pleads guilty to lying about Russian Federation links”

Trump's former national security adviser admitted to lying about his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States during the transition period before Trump's inauguration. Court documents filed by the special counsel said that Flynn "willfully and knowingly" made "materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations".

Details of the cooperation Former national security adviser Michael Flynn intends to give to special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and after emerged around noon on Friday as a "statement of the offense was release". But I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right.

"I do not know what sentence I will impose on this case", Contreras said.

Flynn's plea, Warner said, "comes on the heels of a new report about the President's efforts to silence the independent, bipartisan Senate investigation into ties between Trump associates and Russian Federation".

Flynn has confirmed that he is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his guilty plea for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and prosecutors indicated Flynn has already testified that Trump transition officials directed his contacts with Russians.

"The Statement of the Offense included important new details, including that Flynn was directed by a senior transition official to contact Russian officials in an effort to influence Russia's response to the Obama Administration's imposition of sanctions and the UN Security Council resolution vote on Israeli settlements, and, crucially, that he reported back to transition officials", he said.

Flynn is the most senior member of the Trump administration to have been indicted by the special counsel thus far. Mueller's prosecutors did not reveal the names of the officials, but indicated they were senior and within Trump's inner circle.

Michael Flynn is ready to spill the beans on Trump, according to Ross.

To start with, and there are already reports to this effect, Flynn can say it was President-elect Trump and/or other Trump aides who directed him to say what he did to Kislyak.

The Obama administration, in a rare step that shocked its Middle East ally, planned to abstain on the motion rather than veto it as had been done in the past.

But it added that desperately needed shipments of food and medicines to the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hodeida remained blocked. The three-year civil war continues to rage in Yemen, where 10,000 have died and around 3 million people have been displaced.

White House lawyer Ty Cobb sought to distance the plea from Trump himself, saying, "Nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn".

During the Republican National Convention in July 2016, when Trump was officially nominated as the GOP's candidate, Flynn led the entire convention in a repeated chant of "Lock her up!"

"Since the first day I took office, all you hear is the phony Democrat excuse for losing the election, Russia, Russia, Russia", he tweeted last week.

Mueller's team announced charges in October against three other Trump campaign officials, former chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates, and a former campaign foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos.

Mueller's charging documents state bluntly that Flynn interfered with the FBI's inquiry into Trump-Russia collusion.
