BREAKING: Michael Flynn Pleads GUILTY to Lying To FBI, Says Trump Ordered Him To…

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is pleading guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian ambassador and is agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors.

Flynn is officially the fourth aide from the Trump administration to end up facing criminal charges in the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller who has been attempting to prove there was collusion between the president and Russia to help give him the edge in the election.

This essentially means that someone from Trump’s inner circle is going to be providing information and evidence for an investigation that could have serious ramifications for the current administration.

What’s even more concerning is that according to prosecutors, some of Flynn’s contacts with Russian officials were coordinated by someone who is described as a “senior official of the president’s transition.”

USA Today has some more details on this development:

In a court filing made public Friday, prosecutors alleged that Flynn “did willfully and knowingly make materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to FBI agents during a Jan. 24 interview about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the weeks before Trump took office. Prosecutors charged that he falsely told FBI agents that he did not ask Kislyak to delay a vote on a pending United Nations Security Council resolution when the two men spoke in December.

They also charged that he lied to agents about a Dec. 29 conversation about how Russia might respond to sanctions the U.S. government had levied over its election meddling. Shortly after that call with Kislyak, Flynn placed a call to a “senior official of the presidential transition” at Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago resort, one of Mueller’s prosecutors, Brandon Van Grack, said. Then he called the ambassador again.

In a statement, Flynn said “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. My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country.”

This could have some pretty serious ramifications for the president and the current administrations, but what that might entail is up for debate.

We’ll keep you posted with new, fresh information as it becomes available.
