Flynn says Trump transition team directed him

In the second statement Flynn made on December 22, 2016, Flynn denied asking a Russian Ambassador to delay or defeat a United Nations Security Council resolution.

A source closed to President Donald Trump said the latest developments surrounding his former national security advisor Michael Flynn are "very, very, very bad," according to NBC News. In the first statement Flynn made on December 29, 2016, Flynn denied making a request to a Russian ambassador to "refrain from escalating the situation" after the United States imposed sanctions on Russia and Flynn denied recalling that the Russian ambassador then stated they will "moderate" their response due the the request.

This past Valentine's Day, President Trump asked then FBI Director James Comey to stick around following a meeting with a group of national security officials in the Oval Office.

The Obama administration imposes sanctions on Russian Federation in retaliation for Russia's hacking of the Democratic National Committee in the summer and other efforts to interfere with the USA election.

The bulk of the back-and-forth calls described in court papers, from Flynn to the Russian ambassador and to Trump advisers, happened while the advisers were at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

His third call to the Trump team about Russian Federation happened days later and included multiple senior Trump advisers.

Flynn also agreed to cooperate with Mueller's probe, which focuses on Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible coordination between Russia and Trump's team in the campaign that sent the Republican businessman to the White House.

Flynn is ready to spill the beans on Trump, according to Ross.

The Associated Press reported that the former Trump campaign and White House official admitted that "Trump transition officials directed his contacts with the Russians".

Meanwhile, PASS also seems heading for a vertical split with a group charging Banmbhaniya of hobnobbing with the BJP and the NCP. Citing various Supreme Court judgements, the BJP leader said it was not possible to exceed the cap set by the apex court.

Flynn appeared in court after Mueller said in a court document filed on Thursday that the ex-national security adviser "did willfully and knowingly make materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the Federal Bureau of Investigation when questioned in January 2017 in Washington, about his contacts with Russian officials. This time, the Russians said they wouldn't do as Trump's transition team wanted.

Court documents from prosecutors on Friday also revealed how Flynn obscured his foreign lobbying for Turkey when he registered the work with the Justice Department in March.

Mueller's decision to actually charge Flynn, then, is clearly a significant escalation of an investigation that has already led to charges against Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, and a similar guilty plea for making false statements by Papadopoulos.

Flynn wore a dark blue suit and striped tie with no military regalia and was accompanied by his wife, Lori Andrade.

The question is what else Flynn has offered apart from his guilty plea. He said little other than yes and no to the judge.

"Nothing that I heard, your honor", Flynn replied.

Flynn entered the federal courtroom Friday morning surrounded by attorneys and family, wearing a light blue shirt, a grey suit, and a grim expression. "We'll review everything.' I never said anything such as, 'We're going to review sanctions, ' or anything like that".

The attorneys have a status report on Flynn on February 1, 2018, and a sentence hearing later.
