Today (Dec. 1), Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, will be pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. Flynn lied about two conversations with the Russian ambassador in December 2016.
Reports the New York Times:
The charges were the latest indication that Mr. Flynn was cooperating with the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. Mr. Flynn was scheduled to appear in federal court in Washington at 10:30 on Friday morning.
A plea deal with Mr. Flynn brings Mr. Mueller’s investigation into Mr. Trump’s inner circle. A plea agreement suggests that Mr. Flynn provided information to prosecutors, which may help advance the inquiry.
Flynn will be a convicted felon and is facing five years in prison. However, he probably won’t see anytime in prison because he surely will be singing like a bird.
You can bet that Donald Trump is shooketh.
