The Crusader Journal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI, according to court documents released on Friday, in an escalation of an investigation into alleged ties to Russia that has cast a cloud over President Donald Trump’s administration.

The Office of the Special Counsel said Flynn was charged with making false statements about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.

The office, which is investigating accusations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and potential collusion by Trump’s campaign, said a plea hearing for Flynn had been set for 10:30 a.m. EST (1530 GMT) on Friday.

Flynn was expected to plead guilty. He had turned himself in to the FBI, two federal law enforcement officials told Reuters.

      • Thank you! I can’t help but think of Flynn and chump chanting ‘lock her up’ when accusing Hillary of committing treason when they were the ones actually doing that.

        • Mindmyme,
          I never understood the “lock her up” because Hillary went through investigations and she was not charged with anything. I seriously doubt that the people shouting “lock her up” understand they are shouting a violation of Hillary’s constitutional due process rights.
