President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was forced to resign earlier this year after he misled White House officials about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office. And now, Flynn has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI in January.
The charges were brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as part of an apparent plea deal. Flynn has now promised to cooperate with Mueller in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. And according to ABC News, Flynn might be prepared to testify that candidate Trump "directed him to make contact with the Russians."
