Flynn Lied when he told FBI he didn't talk sanctions with Russian envoy: report (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)
Former national security adviser Michael Flynn told FBI agents that he did not discuss sanctions against Russia with the country’s ambassador prior to President Trump’s inauguration — contradicting information gathered by U.S. intelligence agencies, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
The denial could put Flynn at risk of a legal charge — lying to the FBI is a felony — but the decision to prosecute would rest with Trump's Justice Department. The Post's report cites current and former officials.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has so far rebuffed calls that he recuse himself from any investigation involving contact between Trump associates and Russia.
