Michael Flynn makes perp walk, says he's cooperating with special counsel
Dec 02, 2017, 00:53
Ty Cobb also pointed out that Flynn worked in the White House for only 25 days and was a "former Obama administration official".
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 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. At worst, it implicates Trump directly in working, secretly and behind the scenes, to undermine Obama's foreign policy while the former administration was still in charge.
Mueller's investigators have interviewed members of Trump's family, his top advisors, business partners and lawyers over their actions.
He was forced to resign that post in February, just weeks after the president took office, due to public concerns over his contacts with Russian Federation.
That is, undoubtedly, why Trump made his special plea to Comey in February, why Trump fired Comey and why the White House has circled the wagons against Mueller's Russiagate investigation.
White House lawyer Ty Cobb told The Associated Press that Flynn's guilty plea and pledge to cooperate with the Russian Federation investigation does not implicate "anyone other than Mr. Flynn". The split from the White House suggested to many that Flynn was about to start coorperating with the independent investigation headed by Robert Mueller. The White House has denied that assertion.

Gates III have been indicted by Mueller's fishing expedition for wrongdoings like tax evasion that are unrelated to the campaign. Sessions has repeatedly come under fire for his statements regarding contact between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation .
According to the reports, in a deal with prosecutors, Flynn offered testimony about conversations inside the Trump campaign about contacts with Russian operatives.
Flynn denies that he discussed US sanctions against Russian Federation with Kislyak.
The 58-year-old was forced to resign earlier this year after misleading White House officials about a meeting with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak in December 2016.
Flynn now says he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the substance of his conversations with Kislyak, but that he had fully informed the transition team of the talks. Flynn's decision to admit to these lies and cooperate with the Special Counsel occurred, if press reports are to be believed, with the backdrop of broad legal exposure by Flynn, in addition to his son. Trump, who publicly fretted about his desire to have Mueller wrap up his investigation sooner rather than later, and who supposedly will "blow a gasket" if he isn't exonerated by year's end, will now watch as Mueller proceeds full steam ahead, bolstered by Flynn's input.
Flynn is now accused of "willfully and knowingly" making "false, fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the feds.
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. That appears to refer to the body's vote a day later to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
