Flynn Guilty

Russia Investigation Now Inside the White House

Defense Intelligence Agency

NPR: “President Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during the transition, and he is cooperating with the special counsel’s investigation into the Kremlin’s interference in last year’s election.”

“The plea agreement marks a major development in Special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe—Flynn is the first former senior official from the Trump White House official to face charges. It also suggests that Flynn has information that may take investigators to the core question of their inquiry: possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

“Flynn’s plea agreement and cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller would seem to signal … that the investigation has now reached into the Trump White House itself, and that it still has a long way to go before wrapping up.”
