Michael Flynn, the ex-national security advisor to President Donald Trump, has pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI regarding the campaign’s meetings with Russian Ambassadors. The statements were made just weeks before Trump took office.
Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel overseeing the probe into the alleged ties Trump’s team had with Russians, issued the charges against Flynn. The ex-advisor has stated that he is now working with the Special Counsel in his investigation.
Flynn, appearing in a DC Federal Court this Friday, admitted to one charge of “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements.” The judge, Rudolph Contreras, oversaw the hearing. According to AFP, Contreras, after Flynn’s confirmation of guilt, said “I accept your guilty plea. There will be no trial and there will be probably no appeal.”
