Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty To Lying To FBI

By Christian Smith

A former Aide of the US President on Friday, plead guilty to giving false accounts to the FBI about the conversations he had with Sergey Kislyak, a Russian Ambassador. 

In a surprising turn around, Michael Flynn, a former National Security Adviser, who had resigned his role on February 13, shocked prosecutors investigating collusion between Russia and the 2016 Presidential election, when he entered the plea on Friday morning.

General Flynn, who was interviewed by the FBI days after President Donald Trump was sworn into office, said he lied about the conversation he had with Mr Kislyak.

In a statement, he said: “My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the 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.

“It has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of treason,” he added.
