Former Trump adviser Flynn says he knew lying to the FBI was a crime

Former Trump adviser Flynn says he knew lying to the FBI was a crimePresident Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn said on Tuesday he knew lying to the FBI was a crime as he stood by his guilty plea in a case stemming from the investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to FBI agents about his conversations with Sergei Kislyak, Russia ambassador in Washington at the time. In a filing with the court, a lawyer for Flynn had noted that he was not warned during an FBI interview that lying would be a crime, but an attorney for Flynn told the court on Tuesday during a sentencing hearing that the retired lieutenant general was not entrapped.

Mueller rebukes Flynn, saying he knew better than to lie to FBI

Mueller rebukes Flynn, saying he knew better than to lie to FBIPresident Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn knew better than to lie to the FBI and does not deserve sentencing leniency because he was not warned that lying to federal agents was a crime, U.S. prosecutors said on Friday. The rebuke by Special Counsel Robert Mueller came after Flynn’s lawyers argued that the lack of an explicit warning before an interview with FBI agents in January 2017 should be a mitigating factor in his sentencing on Tuesday. “A sitting National Security Adviser, former head of an intelligence agency, retired Lieutenant General, and 33-year veteran of the armed forces knows he should not lie to federal agents,” Mueller’s office said in a court filing.
