Michael Flynn Is Charged With Lying to the FBI




 

Michael Flynn, who was fired as President Donald Trump's national security adviser after revelations that he lied about his communications with Russia's ambassador, is expected to plead guilty Friday morning to lying to federal agents about the contact.

The charge against Flynn, 58, adds another prominent defendant to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Mueller has already secured indictments against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy, as well as a guilty plea from a junior foreign policy adviser.

The single charge is outlined in a criminal information unsealed Friday in a Washington, D.C. court. Flynn is scheduled to appear at a plea hearing in a Washington D.C. court at 10:30 a.m., according to the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller
