“President Donald Trump defended some of the actions of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn as “lawful” on Saturday, a day after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his talks with the Russian ambassador,” Politico reports.

“Legal experts quickly pointed out Trump could have just publicly admitted he knew Flynn had lied to the FBI when the president approached then-FBI Director James Comey and asked him to drop the investigation into his national security adviser several days after Flynn’s Jan. 24 interview, which could then indicate an attempt to obstruct justice had taken place.”

“Special counsel Robert Mueller is probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, including potential collusion between the president’s campaign and Moscow.”

“Mueller was appointed after Trump fired Comey on May 9, citing the Russia investigation as a reason for the dismissal in a nationally televised interview several days later.”
