Trump's ex-NSA Flynn pleads guilty to lying in Russian Federation probe

Trump's ex-NSA Flynn pleads guilty to lying in Russian Federation probe

"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. In the first statement Flynn made on December 29, 2016, Flynn denied making a request to a Russian ambassador to "refrain from escalating the situation" after the United States imposed sanctions on Russia and Flynn denied recalling that the Russian ambassador then stated they will "moderate" their response due the the request.

Previous reports have purported that Flynn spoke with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak shortly after President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on Russia.

President Trump's attorney Ty Cobb played down the importance of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's guilty plea Friday. As Mueller's probe intensified in the early months of the Trump administration, Gates left the nonprofit altogether.

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

The Justice Department appointed Mueller as special counsel in May after Trump abruptly fired then-FBI Director James Comey, who had been looking into the president and his potential connections with Russians.

It's likely the phones will use the Snapdragon 845 and the equivalent 10nm Exynos version in selected markets. It's early days, but the leaks will begin flowing freely soon enough.

As per the charge sheet, 58-year-old Flynn, a retired general, lied when he told investigators that he did not ask Kislyak to "refrain from escalating the situation" in response to sanctions that then-president Barack Obama had imposed on Russian Federation, and that he did not ask the ambassador to either delay or defeat a related UN Security Council vote.

Flynn, who pleaded guilty to the charge during a hearing in federal court in Washington, DC on Friday, rejected what he called "false accusations" that he is guilty of treason and other "outrageous acts", but said that he takes "full responsibility" for the actions he admitted to in court.

Court documents show Flynn will admit to lying about his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States during the transition period before Trump's inauguration.

Days after Flynn's interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, then-acting attorney general, Sally Yates alerted White House counsel Don McGahn that Flynn was potentially compromised and vulnerable to blackmail because of discrepancies between public assertions - including by Vice President Mike Pence - that Flynn and Kislyak had not discussed sanctions and the reality of what occurred.

The false statements related to Flynn's contact with Russian officials, according to the special counsel.

Signs of Flynn cooperating with Mueller's team surfaced in the past week, as his lawyers told the legal team they could no longer discuss information about the case with them.

The significance of today's plea deal by former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, in which he pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with the Special Counsel, can not be overstated. The rest of the 15-nation council, including Russian Federation, voted unanimously against Israel.

The documents allege that Flynn lied about conversations with the Russian Ambassador at the time, Sergei Kislyak.

After more procedural wrangling, the vote occurred a day later.
