Two Russian lawmakers dismiss Michael Flynn's guilty plea

Two Russian lawmakers dismiss Michael Flynn's guilty plea

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director possibly threw some shade at the Trump administration on social media Friday morning after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He also disclosed that he is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's office.

The plea is the closest Mueller's probe has come to the Oval Office in investigations into the Trump campaign's possible connection to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Former FBI Director James Comey tweeted a verse from the Bible about justice and righteousness Friday after the former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn admitted to lying to FBI agents. "The main object of this attack is of course Donald Trump", Klintsevich is quoted as saying.

Russian Sen. Alexey Pushkov said Flynn's case is much ado about nothing.

That FBI investigation was the basis of the court case against Flynn, centering on a series of conversations that Flynn had with Kislyak during the transition period between the November election and the January 20 inauguration.

"It was a fantastic evening last night", Trump said.

And the president is stressing that there is "no collusion" between his campaign and the Russians.

Flynn said he reported on his contacts to Trump's presidential transition team, including to a "very senior official" who directed him to sound out the Russians on an anti-Israel resolution then before the UN Security Council, according to court filings.

"What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion", Trump told reporters as he left the White House on Saturday for fundraising events in New York City.

A variety of news reports say that the the transition official who told Flynn to contact other governments was Jared Kushner, a White House adviser and the president's son-in-law.

An attorney for Kushner, now a White House senior adviser, did not comment. The developments are a sign that the investigation is intensifying, and details revealed Friday provide the clearest picture yet of coordination between Flynn and other Trump advisers in their contact with Russian officials to influence global policy.
